Your Home for Horror


best indie horror of 2020

We wrap our week-long look back at the best of 2020 by celebrating our favorite indie horror releases of the year; 11 writers, 40 films.

As part of our special Flashback February series, where we celebrate the best genre content of 2020 across a variety of media, I asked our incredible writing team to share their five favorite indie films of the year. Ten of my talented writers joined me in compiling this list of what we consider the best independent releases — many of which may have flown under your radar. Some films made the list of more than one of our reviewers, including the two most recommended films of the year: Relic and His House.

Altogether, 40 amazing films made our collective Best of 202o list — proving the year may have been a real horror show, but there was no shortage of inspired creativity.
