Top Five and Bottom Five of 2015 Horror Movies released in the First Semester of the year, including rating and main positive and negative points of each movie.

  • The Best:

- It Follows - 5/5

Plot: For 19-year-old Jay, fall should be about school, boys and weekends out at the lake. But after a seemingly innocent sexual encounter, she finds herself plagued by strange visions and the inescapable sense that someone, or something, is following her. Faced with this burden, Jay and her teenage friends must find a way to escape the horrors that seem to be only a few steps behind.

+ Original Concept + Effectivly Scary + Perfect Soundtrack + Beautiful Cinematography + John Carpenter's Style

- Let us Prey - 4/5

Plot: Rachel, a rookie cop, is about to begin her first night shift in a neglected police station in a Scottish, backwater town. The kind of place where the tide has gone out and stranded a motley bunch of the aimless, the forgotten, the bitter-and-twisted who all think that, really, they deserve to be somewhere else. They all think they're there by accident and that, with a little luck, life is going to get better. Wrong, on both counts. Six is about to arrive - and All Hell Will Break Loose!

- Digging Up the Marrow - 4/5
