2022 has been a landmark year for movies and there are more exciting options for audiences than ever before. Formerly niche genres have now become mainstream fascinations and there’s even greater enthusiasm present for horror movies. There’s nothing quite like a movie creating genuine fear in its audience, but there are all sorts of reasons that people flock to horror films.

Hyperbolized characters, extreme execution setpieces, and impressive practical effects and monsters are always appreciated.
