    'Us' is a phenomenal movie that I'm glad I decided to see (I thought it was a horror/ scary movie and I don't do those).
    I knew it would be good if Lupita was in it 😁
    One of the best parts is the "I Got 5 On It" remix during the ballet scene 🙌🏾

    I thought "It Follows" ended with the two of them living happily ever after agreeing to keep the std between them two of them faithfully not passing it around anymore.

    When I first saw The Others, I was so confused. It was a great movie though.

    The Mist doesn't deserve to be on this list. It's a stupid ass ending...

    Why is there so much love for a stupid film like "Drag me to hell" is beyond my understanding? It eventually comes in every list.

    when I first watched number 8 I was shocked at the ending.. I just remember thinking WTF :( was definitely memorable.

    I blame my strong sense of justice, but I really hate films where the bad guy wins. Hereditary, The Witch, Wrong Turn, Saw, Hostel, etc. I watch horror movies to see the villain get rocked in the end. The Thing is one of my favorite horror flicks. Some of the most groundbreaking special effects ever in that movie.

    IMO "Us" is terrible and "Get Out" is nothing special either. I mostly watch horror and "Get Out" is a lot like "The Skeleton Key" but with a different and less entertaining method. Honestly, "Us" is quite lame and shouldn't even be on a top 100.

    Is it bad that I found the scene at 6:47 funny?

    An even greater ending in a horror flick, would have to be brightburn. You know, evil superman.

    I’ve been watching so many dead meat kill counts, that when I saw a character die in this video, I expected the screen that shows that they have died with their name, and how they died and everything.

    2 of top 3 black acted films...both were good but not even top 10...hiw politically correct...all warm and fuzzy inside...Green Inferno...Annihilation...House that Jack Built...The Witch and many others were miles ahead of those two...especially Hereditary and Suspiria....grow some balls. White guilt is getting old...if you absolutely need to purge your soul with black horror...Candyman was fucking awesome.

  • MadCarrot Hates Sports

    I am gonna be labeled racist...US was not that great...they are black so we have to say it was brilliant. Great acting...not scary...and ridiculous plot. Nothing special.

    'It Follows' was promising and actually scary at first, but towards the was just disappointing, at least for me. Specially that scene in the pool where that guy was trigger happy trying to shoot that thing he couldn't see, not minding at all if he shot one of his friends by a stray bullet. That was so stupid! In the end, they had to resort to a prostitute to solve their problems.

    Hereditary ending thooooo

  • Ignacio Andrés Guajardo Perales

    Us is trash. The tone is mess up, twists can be spotted a mile away, and the argument is laughable. The acting is the only plus.

    Kinda sad IT didn't even get an honourable mention, like the way Pennywise just says "fear" cause he felt it for the first time and then dropped was brilliant, as was the showdown leading to to it.
