Oh, and I still find it hilarious that Kenner made an action figure line based on this strongly R-rated film in the 1990s. Those are some of the best toys ever, by the way.
This is only half-true! They made an action figure line based on a cartoon that was based on a hard R film. It never got past a pilot, but Kenner made the toys, anyways. Supposedly, the pilot is lost, but I would absolutely LOVE if someone dug it up and included it as a special feature on a future blu-ray.
The VVitch didn't make my list but its a fantastic piece of unnerving art horror. Its very much a slow burn movie so I'm sure it disappointed a lot of a certain kind of horror fan who heard about the "best horror movie of the year".
I feel like that might be me, except I usually love slow-burns? (House of the Devil is a personal favorite, and almost every time I mention it, someone is bound to tell me how boring it is.) The performances in The Witch are fantastic, but the plot was just... kind of a snooze? I liked Midsommar a lot more, but I'll save my thoughts on that.
