    Lets see em fellas, post yours here. Will update and edit my post once i'm able to watch some of the more lauded films I have not seen (Hell or High Water, La La Land, Arrival, Moonlight. Yeah I have quite a few). But for now.....

    1.) Neon Demon
    2.) The VVitch
    3.) The Invitation
    4.) The Wailing
    5.) Green Room
    6.) Midnight Special
    7.) The Lobster
    8.) Don't Breathe
    9.) The Nice Guys

    This has been a shit year for films. Not even listing a 10th movie til I get to see some of the more acclaimed films.

    Yea overall shit year for movies (and video games).

    Only one on that list i saw was The Witch (solid film, but more suspenseful than horror imo, definitely not scary at all).

    I did enjoy Rogue One though
     
  4. I don't know about the best but Sully was pretty good.

    I was there the day the plane landed on the river. That pilot was an ace. Incredible what went wrong in such a short period of time and even more amazing is the sequence of events that went right shortly thereafter.

    The Witch was terrible. When the lead actor is a goat it's bound to fail.

    The Witch is an alltime great horror film. Watch it with subtitles bruh, might make it more enjoyable for you (did for me)

    I've seen 26 films this year...

    Btw, The Witch was a great film but it was from 2015.

    Edit: As was Green Room

    1. Arrival
    2. Hacksaw Ridge
    3. Nice Guys
    4. Allied
    5. The Accountant
    6. 13 Hours
    7. Hail Ceasar
    8. Civil War
    9. Dr Strange

    Those are the movies that I'd rate as good-or-above of the films I've seen so far.

    Deadpool.

    I think that, sausage party, the new ice age movie and secret life of pets are the only movies released in 2016 that I've seen so far. The joys of parenthood.

    Green Room was 2016 (for us Americans at least). For The Witch, its been a shit year and I see people including it so I did. Genuinely forgot when it was released in US though.

    Apperently both of them played at festivals in 2015 before getting general releases in 2016 so I guess they both count.

    You can't be serious about The Witch being the all-time best horror film?

    It will go down as a horror classic, but I think you misread what I wrote. I didn't call it THE all time best horror film lol
