This Argentine shockfest blew crowds away at the 2018 Fantastic Fest and debuted in the US on Shudder. Our own Dyland Church called it the best horror movie of 2018. It’s not just about a haunted house, but a whole haunted neighborhood, and the interesting characters who try to get to the bottom of it. The mystery and jump scares are reminiscent of “The Conjuring” series, but Demian Rugna’s film can stand on its own. -Mike Joyce
