Here Are 9 Horror Movies From The Last Decade To Watch, And 7 To Absolutely Not Watch

    "What's your favorite scary movie?"

    Hello, my darling fans. Today we will be discussing my own favorite horror movies from the past ten well as the ones I didn't particularly care for.

    "But Julia, I don't even like horror movies!" you might be saying, already terrified. And to that, I answer, "Exactly!" But someday, you will be with a friend, or a date, or some other weirdo who wants to watch a horror movie. And by giving you this list, I am telling you exactly which movies will be bearable — even enjoyable! — and which ones you ought to steer clear of. If, on the other hand, you do like horror movies... feel free to sit back, scroll, and judge my opinions.

    So here are the scary movies I believe unequivocally slay (pun intended), and those to which I advise you to say "nay".
