The horror films resurgence of the last few years has been a remarkable thing to watch: some of the most exciting new filmmakers to emerge have been working in the genre, and plenty of masters have been doing some of the best work of their careers. And, unsurprisingly, given that waking up every morning in 2017 has been like stepping into a John Carpenter nightmare, the last 12 months has seen the horror boom bigger than ever.

A mid-budget Stephen King adaptation became the biggest-ever movie in the genre (and outgrossed most of the superhero movies and tentpole sequels while it was at it). And two further original horror pics became giant smashes, one of which is all but certain to become the first horror movie to pick up a Best Picture Oscar nod, and maybe even win the damn thing, since “ Silence Of The Lambs .”

But even outside the mainstream, there was a wealth of great work, from international debuts to Netflix gems. Given that the genre’s often overlooked in our end of year coverage, we try to give it a special focus in a feature that picks out our very favorite horrors of the year: below you’ll find the 15 best that we saw. Take a look, and let us know if we missed your own faves in the comments.

Coming up with a list of the Top 25 Horror Films is a good way to weed out the scary movie veterans from the scaredy cats. You can spot 'em every time a jump scare happens, or a devil-possessed girl crab walks upstairs, or an alien missiles out of some poor sucker's chest.

Okay, so we were more scared than not when working on this list. Sue us! Using overall movie quality, impact on the genre, legacy potential, fright/creepy factor and that mysterious quality known as Editor's Choice, we assembled a list of movies that guarantee you'll want to sleep with the lights on.

Some of the movies here are more traditional horror fare, others are just twisted and creepy in a "permanently scarred for life" sorta way (e.g. The Silence of the Lambs ). But all of them will scare the living heck out of you. So enjoy, and fire off your own suggestions and faves in the comments!
