Horror movies aren't typically expensive to produce, but they can be tricky to market. Also, a lot of them are terrible. So, they tend to come out from January through early April before all the big-budget motion pictures start to dominate the market. And 2016 was no different.
As the long winter began, so did the release of the horror movie glut. And now, as the sun begins to rise and the temperature (sorta kinda) begins to warm, the ghosts and ghouls are retreating from your local theater (mostly) until autumn.
Unsurprisingly, many of these horror flicks are making a quick transition to video on demand and DVD/blu-ray. For those who didn't venture to the theater much, the question becomes -- are there any proverbial blood diamonds in the horror rough?
So, here is a run down of every major (and limited) release horror movie. I watched them so you didn't have to. And in the case of a few of these, you are very welcome.
This list is decidedly different from the one we started with at the beginning of the year. But that, it turns out, has been a blessing in disguise, because many of these films are probably better than the movies that got shifted until later.
