This Welsh horror movie is directed by Lee Haven Jones and stars Annes Elwy, Nia Roberts, and Julian Lewis Jones.

It got an "82% Certified Fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Cheese) overnight to pay off a debt. Similar to the wildly popular video game Five Nights at Freddy's, things get violent when the animatronics come to life. "Willy's Wonderland" earned a 60% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Lupita Nyong'o, Alexander England, and Josh Gad star in this zombie comedy film from 2019.

It's a funny and fresh take on the genre, carried by incredible performances from the main cast. "Little Monsters'' has a "79% Certified Fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
"The Lodge'' is a psychological thriller directed by Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala.

This remake of the 1985 original of the same name is directed by Craig Gillespie and stars Anton Yelchin and Colin Farrell.

"The Wretched" received a "75% Certified Fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
For fans of sci-fi horror, "Sputnik" should be next on your list. The 2020 Russian film is directed by Egor Abramenko and stars Oksana Akinshina, Pyotor Fyodorov, and Fyodor Bondarchuk. Set in the Cold War-era 1980s, Oksana Akinshina plays a young doctor who has been tasked with assessing a cosmonaut who has survived a harrowing accident while in space.

"Lights Out" came out in 2016 as David F. Sandberg's directorial debut. Starring Teresa Palmer, Gabriel Bateman, and Alexander DiPersia, it's a supernatural thriller in which a woman and her stepbrother are terrorized by a spirit that only appears after the lights go out. It's the only title on this list that's rated PG-13 — which is somewhat of a rarity for good horror films nowadays. "Lights Out" has a "75% Certified Fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
'Let the Right One In'
