THE BEST HORROR MOVIES OF 2020 / أفضل أفلام الرعب لعام 2020
على مدار العام الماضي ، جمعنا كل فيلم رعب جديد ومعتمد حديثًا مع ما لا يقل عن 20 مراجعة ، مما أنشأ دليلنا لأفضل أفلام الرعب لعام 2020 ، مرتبة حسب Tomatometer. قبل أن يغلق الوباء المسارح ، كان الرعب في بداية جيدة ، في طريقه لمواكبة الخطوات الطويلة التي قطعها هذا النوع في العقد الأول من القرن الحادي والعشرين. أعاد The Invisible Man إحياء فيلم Universal monster (وبجزء بسيط من تكلفة مومياء 2017) ، بينما كان Color Out of Space هو أفضل فيلم H. تكيف Lovecraft منذ Re-Animator. نظرًا لوجود مأوى في مكانه ، تحول الجمهور إلى البث ، وسرعان ما زاد المضيف الذي تم تصويره في الحجر الصحي وتشريح الطبقة الاجتماعية في إسبانيا The Platform إلى كلمات شفهية. ساعد البث المباشر لأفلام الرعب ذات الموضوعات والأصول المتنوعة في الحصول على مزيد من الاهتمام أكثر مما كانت ستحصل عليه خلال أوقات التوزيع العادية ، مثل فيلم الزومبي الكندي الأول للأمم ، فيلم Blood Quantum ، والفيلم السياسي La Llorona ، وفيلم الإثارة الروسي سبوتنيك ، واللاجئ السوداني الذي يطارد منزله. مع اقتراب إعادة افتتاح المسارح في وقت لاحق من العام ، شهدت أفلام مثل Freaky و The Rental و Possessor بعض النجاح في جذب الناس للخروج من منازلهم. شاهد الترتيب الكامل لأفضل أفلام الرعب لعام 2020.
