The Top 10 Horror Films Of The Last 5 Years

Deepak, 25/10/2017

It's Halloween time again, and that can only mean one thing: time for a new horror movie list for your viewing/nightmare pleasures! For this year's list, I decided to provide you with the top 10 best horror films of the past five years. The rules this time are a bit different from my past lists.

I limited the entries to straight-up horror genre films, omitting certain movies that are mostly crime-thrillers or heavily sci-fi oriented. As such, films like I Saw the Devil, Kill List, Stoker, Prometheus, or Under the Skin for example are not included.

-- here are the top ten best horror movies of the past five years, including a look at how they performed at the worldwide box office!

Story
The Top 10 Horror Films Of The Last 5 Years
Story
Releasing in October of 2010, this one took only $24 million in theaters, off of a $20 million budget. Sadly, then, it never enjoyed the attention it deserved from audiences.
Story
Budgeted at a modest $15 million, the $127 million worldwide box office was an impressive return and led to a far less impressive sequel.
Story
The $5 million it managed from global receipts is not much above its $3.5 million budget, but it built a minor cult following on home release, and now a U.S. remake is planned.
Story
The film more than doubled its $30 million budget with $66 million in theatrical revenue, but the studio's portion barely covered those expenses and the marketing adds tens of millions more in the red column.

Story
The $44 million box office numbers are a win, in light of the comparatively low $5 million budget, another entry that proves low-to-modest budgeting is typically the smartest and most profitable route for horror.

Story
That, and it's scary as hell. Costing just $2 million to produce, this movie more than covered expenses even with an extremely modest $18 million theatrical cume.
Story
With a micro-budget, the film had a limited release and only took just under $500,000. But it received almost universal critical praise, as well it should, and is building quite a following on home entertainment among horror fans.
Story
At $20 million to produce, the film was a major hit with $318 million worldwide, making it one of the most profitable and highest-grossing horror films in history.

Story
Budgeted at a low $2 million, the film pulled nearly $7 million in theaters and garnered widespread acclaim as one of the greatest modern horror releases.

Story
This film grossed $77 million off of a $3 million budget, so it performed very well and had terrific profit margins.
