Share Your Best and Worst of 2017 with Gruesome Magazine

While 2017 has been a very bumpy ride here at Gruesome Magazine, the past twelve months have given horror fans a great number of terrific horror films. We were treated to Get Out, The Void, It, Gerald’s Game just to mention a very few. Of course, as with every year, there are a number of stinkers as well. The Snowman, anyone? As December comes to a close, Horror News Radio annually presents its BEST OF and WORST OF episodes which have proven to be the most popular editions of the podcast. HNR episode 245 which will be available 12/14 will present the WORST OF 2017 while episode 257 available 12/28 will shine the light on the BEST OF 2017.

Also, look for individual lists from the Grue-Crew as many of the regular contributors will be sharing their personal lists as well. But, more importantly, we want to hear from YOU, the fans, the listeners, the horror community. Share your favorite film or your top 10, you decide. Regardless we want to know. Let us know which film or films treated you wrong or just out and out stunk to high heaven. What films did you love that we may overlook, that didn’t get the wide praise others may have received. It’s easy to do, share below in the comments or email to media[at]gruesomemagazine[dot]com. We will share your faves and not-so-faves on the podcast.

Here’s a short list of the films to consider. Some films may have a 2016  date in IMDb but are just making it to your screen. Those are candidates you can use as well. Or, if you saw a film not on the list but it played at a film festival, that too can be considered. We can’t wait to see what you have to share.
