HORROR 2019 - Another annual listicle of horror films to scare the hell out of you.  Along with lists from the past several years.  As always, I value fresh offerings over uninspired remakes and praise originality above all else. Series/ franchises can be great when purposeful and unique. With the success of Jordan Peele's Get Out, I am encouraged that Hollywood continues to represent POC and LGBT.
