Since 2020 has been a disaster so far due to the global pandemic and various other events that have disrupted our lives, 2019 seems like paradise. We had some great movie releases last year across various genres, especially in horror. New franchises were introduced, old ones came to an end, while spin-off films brought a unique side to some classic horror movie series. We also had our share of monster movies that thrilled us as much as ghosts and other supernatural beings. Here are the top horror movies of 2019 that you can watch online, in case you missed them at the theatres:

Doctor Sleep

Doctor Sleep is a well-made successor to The Shining which provides closure to the character of Danny Torrance as he grows and has a chance to use his shine to protect someone else. There’s plenty here for fans of the original film and also a completely new story with menacing villains who give the act of inhaling steam terrifying new implications.
