10. Mother!

Mother! has been rated 91% by the Eff Your Review team

Mother! Is the first of our films on out top 10 horror films list. Mother! is a film about a couple who find their house becoming crowded, after allowing just one person into it originally. This causes the couple or argue quite a lot, as the man is incredibly welcoming to the strangers, however the female isn’t.

The film itself is a psychological horror and a movie to truly remember. The film is emotionally and psychologically distressing. We would definitely suggest to any horror film lover to watch this film, due to the incredible journey the film takes the audience on.

9. A Dark Song

A Dark Song has been rated 91% by the EFF Your Review Team.

The second film in our top 10 horror films list is A Dark Song. This film focuses on a devastated lady who wishes to partake in a spiritual ritual in order to bring her child back who passed away.

The film takes the audience on a journey in a slow-paced manner to make them understand the struggles of the Mother’s pain. The ritual involves the characters not being able to leave the house for a long time, which really gives us a sense of desperation in the need for the Mother to see her child again. Truly a masterpiece horror film and certainly deserved a place on our top 10 rated horror list. Click here to read the full review.



8. Midsommar

Midsommar has been rated 92% by the EFF Your Review Team.

MidSommar is a horror film that is Directed by Ari Aster (the same director as Hereditary). MidSommar is about four university friends who are invited to go to Sweden to visit a festival that happens every ninety years by one of the friends. One of the friends (named Christian) has a girlfriend (Dani) who is going through a lot of problems relating to her family passing away, and therefore, he reluctantly invites her to Sweden hoping that she’ll turn down the offer. What happens there though will truly blow you away …

Oh my gosh, this film is truly breath taking. The horror film leaves in you a complete head f*ck as the cinematography, story line, scriptwriting and directing takes you so successfully into this world, that you feel that you are experiencing the pain, happiness, paranoia, and confusion as all of the characters involved.

The House that Jack Built follows the life of a serial killer named Jack, and bases his life into five randomly selected murders.

6. The Exorcism of Emily Rose

The Exorcism of Emily Rose has been rated 92% by the EFF Your Review Team.

The Exorcism of Emily Rose is about a priest who is on trial for attempting to cure a girl named Emily Rose of the demons inside her. The trail examines both the facts and conclusions from this incident, as well as examining the possibility of the unsettling alternatives.

5. The Boy (2016)

The Boy has been rated 92% by the EFF Your Review Team.​

The Boy is about an old couple who lost their 8-year-old son in a fire. Soon after, they receive a toy doll that looks like their son. They spend years trying to find a Nanny to look after the doll. The Nanny was set strict rules and routine to look after the doll, but the Nanny soon realises there is consequences for not following the rules.

We originally went into it thinking that it was a typical doll horror film, where a doll can talk and has powers to attack people, but hell no! We definitely didn’t expect this film to be as scary as it is. If you love horror, then it would be a humongous shame for you to miss out on this relatively unique story line!

4. The Descent

The Descent has been rated 93% by the EFF Your Review Team.

A group of women who have become friends over the love of being adrenaline junkies. Sometime after a tragic loss, Sarah decides to join her friends in an exploration of a cave. However, they soon realise that this is not the cave that they originally thought they were in.

The Descent is everything you want a horror film to be. The jump scares are petrifying, the creatures are brutally savage, and the gore is just perfect. This film defiantly deserves a spot on our top 10 rated horror films! Click here to read the full review of The Descent. 



3. Hereditary

Hereditary has been rated 94% by the EFF Your Review Team.

Hereditary is about a Grandmother of the Graham family who passes away, and the rest of the family are slowly revealed to the unknown secrets of the family.

Sixteen years later, the film shows how one of the daughters (who is now a successful author with a vivid imagination) returns to the house to see unspeakable acts of horrors, including physical and emotional abuse.

This film truly shocked our team, as it blew all our expectations as to how petrifying it was. The film is brilliant at building suspense and confusion amongst the main character and the audience.
