Talking Stars #31 – Top Ten Horror Films of 2016

Damien Riley and Darren Lucas are the featured blog film critics on this podcast show. They altered their appearance to be with you today.

In this episode, Darren and Damien talk about horror films released in 2016. It was a great year for horror they both agree. It was tough making a top ten with so many scares and creepy things on the silver screen. They both bring their personal top tens and weave them through the podcast to create an amalgamated list. We highly recommend the films that are listed here. Go have yourself a scare! If you’ve already seen a film, please comment and continue the conversation.


2017 may be just as good if not better for horror. Here is our Top Ten Horror of 2016 list. Each title is followed by links to Darren and Damien’s reviews on the films for further reading.
