Favorite Horror Movie From the Past Year | Horror Lovers Challenge

I am participating in a 30-day challenge. This time it is all about horror! If you know anything about us here at the Fort, you would know that we are hardcore horror fans. Each October, we watch a movie night that we dub “The 31 Nights of Horror.”

#HorrorLoversChallenge Favorite Horror Movie from the Past Year: Nope

Prompt: Favorite Horror Movie from the Past Year

I know I will get a lot of flack for this because so many people did not like it, but I am going with Nope (2022), directed by Jordan Peele. I liked this one, and I remember commenting on my Facebook page that I think that Peele is the next great horror director and he may give the O.G.’s a run for their money. 

Nope is not your typical horror flick and harkens back to the old-school sci-fi movies of the 1950s and 60s with a modern flair that is full of greed, commercialism, and over-abundance. 

The storyline goes: After random objects falling from the sky result in the death of their father, ranch-owning siblings OJ and Emerald Haywood attempt to capture video evidence of an unidentified flying object with the help of tech salesman Angel Torres and documentarian Antlers Holst


Despite being featured prominently, Fry’s Electronics closed all of its locations on February 24, 2021, prior to the film’s production. The film shot in the Burbank, California location and recreated the interior.
