Morbidly Beautiful

Your Home for Horror


After bemoaning the disappointments of last year’s genre offerings, we celebrate the best of 2023 horror — and there was a lot of it.

Lovely Dark and Deep

Lovely, Dark, and Deep

Before we gush about 2023, we talk about one of the most underrated remakes ever. Largely ignored at the time of its 1988 release, The Blob is an excellent remake of a sci-fi classic. With the news that David Bruckner is attached to the next iteration of the film, we talk about what excites us – and why Bruckner has his work cut out for him.

Then, we move on to the main event as we reflect on the best horror of 2023. 

A lot of big news came out of Hollywood this past year. From strikes to a billion-dollar phenomenon, the movies were constantly in the news — so much so that many films were overshadowed by it all.

That being said, it was a great year for genre cinema. From January all the way through December, we kept seeing awesome movies.

Last week was all about the genre films that left us wanting, but there was plenty to cheer about in 2023. Which of the year’s best topped our list of favorites?

Naturally, there is horror talk, including two of the biggest releases (at least for horror fans) of the year. But we also talk about lost sub-genres, the direction true crime can take, the power of short horror, and The Booty Boys.


It is an eclectic episode this week, and we hope you’ll discover some of the year’s best that you may have missed — some of the great content others aren’t really talking about.

Do you agree with our picks? What were the biggest thrills and chills for you in 2023? Sound off in the comments. 

Editor’s Note: Learn more about the excellent short film mentioned in this episode, Transylvanie, here. It had a highly successful festival run, and you’ll want to stay tuned for the short’s widespread release.
