As of this writing, we have yet to see The Purge: Election Year; Satanic; Carnage Park; or The Neon Demon. We've seen just about everything else that was released in the first half of 2016 theatrically, on disc, or on VOD, so we made this list with plenty of perspective as to what the year has and has not been thus far, movie-wise.
- This list is alphabetical, not in any sort of ranking order.
- You can click the pics to read our reviews of each movie, if you want our full thoughts, instead of just a blurb. *The Blackcoat's Daughter is one that haven't reviewed yet, so that link goes to IMDB.

We really hope they'll do a sequel, because we want to know where the story goes next. We really loved the hell out of this one.
|THE BLACKCOAT'S DAUGHTER|
I'd need way more words than this small space would hold to explain why this movie was so good, so until we post our review, I'll just say that The Blackcoat's Daughter may well be our favorite Horror movie of 2016 so far. Maybe.
Deadpool was probably the most fun we've had in a theater this year.
Anton Yelchin, in what may be the last "big" genre movie of his short career, was a standout.
This is a great movie to watch alone in the dark... especially if you live way out in the country.
The Invitation is definitely the classiest Horror movie of 2016 so far.
|THE ONES BELOW|
Clemence Poesy makes us swoon a bit, even if she was more on the creepy side in this one. That twist...
Blake Lively in a bikini is not THE reason we enjoyed this one so much, but it was A reason.
The world needs more Horror Anthologies like this one.
Who doesn't love a good Norwegian Disaster movie?
Along with The Blackcoat's Daughter, The Witch is at the very top of our list of Best Horror Movies of 2016, and will likely still be there when the second half of the year is over.
