Chris here, Fright Fans! As you may know, I kind of have an OCD thing for making movie lists. December is always the prime time to start thinking about your “Top Ten” lists of whatever for the given year, and 2018 is no exception.
If you are a regular listener to the show, you may have heard us mention we will be doing a recap of 2018 for our final episode of the year at the end of December. As I began preparing for it (by making lists, of course), I found that there was a helluva lot of horror I had not seen yet this year that I meant to! In an effort to do some last minute catching up, I scoured the streaming services to see what I could set my eyeballs on. And as I complied the lists, I figured why not share this glorious undertaking with you guys, too!
In the lists below, I have found what I could through Amazon Prime, Hulu, Netflix, and Shudder. By no means are these lists fully inclusive, but they area pretty strong start with a selection of mainstream, indie, and international films that have crossed my radar this year. I’m counting 2018 as the release date of the films based on the US release date, whether that was theatrical (not festival) or streaming. Unless indicated otherwise, all of the films are included with your subscription to the given service. Just click on the film titles and be taken to their respective IMDb pages for more information.
Ready to sink your teeth into this?

I’ve only seen ten films out this entire list, so I’ve got a bit of homework ahead of me! Two notable films from this year that aren’t listed are Suspiria and Overlord. Well, no home release date could be found for Suspiria, but Overlord is being released on DVD and blu-ray in February 2019. Until then, I’m sure you can find plenty to watch here. (UPDATE: Suspiria will be out on VOD January 15, 2019.)
Have any films you loved this year that you feel I missed? Say so in the comments section, and I will add them to the list with credit to you for suggesting it. Just get any suggestions in by Christmas 2018, please. Thanks for reading, Fright Fans. Now go watch some movies!!
