The Best Horror Film of 2021

As it turns out, 2021 was a big year in horror.  It really feels bigger than one might think.  I considered this year to be a make-up year after 2020 and films like Antlers being pushed back from their 2020 release.  I honestly didn’t realized there were more than ten or fifteen released until Nathan Thomas Milliner told me he was over 40 for the year.   He named a bunch I hadn’t heard of and I ended 2021 with around 20 viewed from this long year.

We did a Top 30 of 2021 show two weeks ago, so if you there is something missing, watch this video below, otherwise, enjoy the list.

So, the way we are going to break this down.  Each member of the show, THS Discourse has picked their 5 favorite movies from 2021.  This could give you a solid idea of which movies to see from this past year.

There are a few others to check out that just missed our Top 5.  Check out Willy’s Wonderland, Psycho Goreman, Wrong Turn, Slaxx, Censor, the Columnist and Martyr’s Lane.  2021 may have been a rough year, but horror did not suffer.  There were many good and even great movies we finally got to see this year.  I think it will be hard to top 2021 in 2022.  But, we do have the finale of the new Halloween trilogy to look forward to, along with a new Scream film and so many more movies.

Make sure you check your streaming services for these movies.  Hulu, Shudder and others hold a good portion of these movies.

THS Discourse will be back in January with all new episodes and topics for season 3.  If you haven’t subscribe to the Youtube channel and please like the Facebook page as we march closer to 20,000 page likes.

Thanks for sticking with us and enjoy the horror.

About Ray Marek III 699 Articles
I have been watching horror films since I was 6 years old. The story, one Saturday night, my mom and I were watching movies and she fell asleep on the couch. We had the channel set on HBO and the movie we were watching ended and the next one, A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge. This was some time in 1986. I watched then entire film, I was sitting on the edge of my seat. When my mom woke, she asked me what just ended and I told her, “Freddy”. That was all I talked about for weeks and finally she broke down and rented more horror films for me. She rented, the Texas Chainsaw Massacre part 2, Re-Animator, Friday the 13th VI: Jason Lives and Halloween II. I watched all and fell in love with horror films forever. 5 Horror Films to Watch Inferno (1980) A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) The Beyond (1981) Friday the 13th VI: Jason Lives (1986) Horror of Dracula (1958)
