[Survey] Best Horror Films of 2019 – First 6 Months

How time flies! 2019 is already half over and, certainly, the best is yet to come. But, how do the first 6 months of the year measure up? Which films hit the mark? And which ones fell way too short? When the Grue-Crew did their most anticipated films of the year, things looked great, promising that 2019 would be a significant year in horror history. Perhaps, we were just a bit too optimistic, eh?

OK, Grue-believers, let’s complete this poll rating each of the films we saw from January 1, 2019, to June 30, 2019 (according to their release dates). This should be interesting.
