With a decade of monumental horror coming to an end, we pay homage to the genre's recent past by looking back at the horror releases of 2017 and 2018 on a new episode of Corpse Club!
2017 and 2018: it was the years when Jordan Peele took us to the Sunken Place, when the Xenmorph returned to the big screen, when we were stuck in a killer time loop, and when Michael Myers and Laurie Strode got their long-awaited rematch. As the decade hurtled toward its conclusion, viewers were introduced to bold visionaries behind the camera and witnessed new sequels in some of the most influential franchises in horror history. There was no shortage of must-see scares on the big and small screens, giving us plenty to talk about on this episode of Corpse Club!
Continuing our retrospective series on the 2010s with a special episode that spans two years of scares, Scott Drebit, Tamika Jones, Bryan Christopher, and Derek Anderson take a look back at some of the most memorable horror releases of 2017 and 2018 that made an impressionable splash in the past that continues to ripple into the present. From Pennywise's reign of terror in IT and the thought-provoking horrors of Get Out to the return of Michael Myers and Laurie Strode in Halloween, the Corpse Club co-hosts discuss a wide range of horror movies released theatrically in 2017 and 2018, and they also reflect on notable video games and TV series from that two-year span, including the immersive scares of Resident Evil 7 and Mike Flanagan's heart-wrenching adaptation of Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House.
So join us on another installment of our journey through a decade filled with horror remakes, groundbreaking original films, binge-worthy series, and visceral video games. The 2010s may be getting ready for the grave, but thanks to the decade's immeasurable influence on the world of horror, there's no way it will rest in peace!
