Perhaps 10 is a bit much? These represent about half of the horror of the decade movies I've seen.

1. Us
2. It Follows
3. Get Out
4. Housebound
5. The Witch
6. Train to Busan
7. The Babadook
8. Goodnight Mommy (Ich seh Ich seh)
9. Suspiria
10. Tucker and Dale vs. Evil

Perhaps 10 is a bit much?
I feel that too.

Why;

1. It's a single genre
2. Only movies of the 2010s

But you already got 10. This is a poll suggestion for horror movie fans. Each year there are a few hundret movies of the genre released. I think 10 are ok. If there are really less people who can name ten ups of their genre, I might cut it down to 5, maybe? Lets wait a little. The 2010s are gone, so anybody can take time to remember on last 10 years.

The best horror movies are those that use their horror elements for another purpose, they tell us something about a character, make a point about a certain theme, or use a scary situation as a setup for a relieving laugh.

1) You can add The Lighthouse at number 3, 

But they untagged I Am Mother !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! does it still count because I'm probably not gonna watch another horror movie soon.

2) I didn't find any conclusion, these movies aren't the best horror movies of the decade, they are the only ones that I have seen, I can't justify my choices.

You can add Jigsaw (2017) at #10. Don't believe that I like Jigsaw, in fact, I rated it 3/10. But, otherwise, I can't find 10 movies.

Ok, what about 7?
Seven is the number of sin, which perfectly fits for a horror movie, isn't it?

Nope. I've seen a lot of horror films in the 2010s. There were good ones, bad ones, and there were passable films. But I couldn't gather a full Top 10 list without adding a few of passable films, which I didn't want to do.
I could have had a Top 10 if I added some films which have a Horror tag on IMDb, but which I don't consider to be horror. What We Do in the Shadows, for example, and Take Shelter.

My Picks:

  1. Raw (2016)
  2. Hereditary (2018)
  3. The Lighthouse (2019)
  4. The Conjuring (2013)
  5. It (2017)
  6. Mama (2013)
  7. The Witch (2015)
  8. Saw: The Final Chapter (2010)
  9. World War Z (2013)
  10. Upgrade (2018)

Sorry about the complaining above, I just didn't recall all the movies of the past decade. I recently watched so many new and re-watched some old horror movies to complete my list for this poll.
Also, I didn't know that 'World War Z' and 'Upgrade' had the Horror genre.

Note: I might change my picks. But my top (#1) is fixed.

Tbh, 'Upgrade' shouldn't have the Horror genre. I'll replace it soon with something else. I only listed it to fill the top 10.

Yo, Bossanova. :D
"agree" was written in so many polls before, I just did it the same.
But if that is a problem to you, I can also write "prefer".
I'll make some changes and update your list, but please wait a few hours.

Yes. "Horror films don't create fear. They release it."

Also, replace #9 with 'Midsommar'. Thanks.

I thought about putting Only Lovers Left Alive on my list. But I don't really see it as a horror film.

I just added it there because it is considered as such by the IMDb, but it probably is not Horror.

Breu, a better conclusion would be:

A few that were trully scary and exciting, and all of them with something of interest. While I have not seen a lot of horror, I am glad I could find 10 films that I would recommend watching to any fan of the genre.

I agree with those that stated 10 is a bit many for a single genre, for many viewers. Perhaps Top 5 will be more realistic.

It's not too many for me though; Horror is my favourite genre and I'm sure I've seen at least 50 Horror titles from the past decade.

Here are my Top 10:

1. Would You Rather (2012)
2. Scream 4 (2011)
3. Death Note (I) (2017)
4. Jigsaw (I) (2017)
5. Happy Death Day (2017)
6. Blumhouse's Truth or Dare (I) (2018)
7. Devil (2010)
8. 13 Sins (2014)
9.  The Cabin in the Woods (2011)
10. Happy Death Day 2U (2019)

The release year has to be between 01/01/2010 and 12/31/2019. It's not one of each year, but 10 within the 10 years. All ten can also be realeased in one year, if you said: "Yes that was the definite year of horror in that decade".

Oh, I don't like Horror, they scare me, but my boyfriend NVankerr loves them ;)

He really wants to see this poll live so he asked me to post.

You don't have to watch them, if you don't want them. But then NVanKerr should accept that you don't want to see that movies. I got the fortune that my wife and me both like good horror stories, SciFi, Action, but also have differences. We don't force each other to watch what the other doesn't want to. It's extremely rare that that happens (only with a blinkin' eye). :D I like the list of NVanKerr - and the other lists. I can see that everybody had some ideas in his/her mind. If the list goes online later, it is ok for me. It wouldn't even be bad to not see this one get online. And I still think it's a good idea.

1. Mother!
2. Annihilation
3. Cabin in the Woods
4. Us
5. The Babadook
6. Get Out
7. Under the Shadow
8. The Lighthouse
9. Hereditary
10. The Witch

Conclusion: I don't watch horror movies to be entertained always. If they evoke the feeling of horror and create an engaging experience with that feeling throughout, then they succeed as horror films. I also like a little dark comedy thrown in as well.

I have a feeling that 2010's, being similar to 1980's in more ways than one actually will have the same problem of many great little known horror movies falling through cracks and only being discovered much later. There are already quite a few movies only gaining buzz late into 2010's despite being released midway through it... 

I always feel like I underwatched its movies when the decade ends.

I mostly trust the average rating in relation to the ammount of ratings. So I discovered some really nice gems on Amz. :)
Nikolay. I'm a horror movie fan. I watch 25-50 of them each year. Sometimes more. So it really is easy for me to choose some highlights. I would have a lack of anime-knowledge of the last decade, if you asked me. ;) I couldn't write down 5 of them.
Not to mix up with animated movies. There I would know some more. ;)

Btw.: Trailers are another criterion for me to choose, if I wanna see a horror movie or not. In some trailers you can see that the production design is lousy by cam and stage. Most horror movies are not expensive. So if I see that, it has a good chance to never meet my eye. Many trailers have so much information that you can guess the fun. Others have too much information, then you have seen the movie by the trailer.

Breumaster, production design is not something entirely visible from the trailers. Nor it's something really expensive, if life-saving. Many of the horror classics are extremely low-budget, and yet overall creative approach saves them and that's not just on production design: costume design, photography, editing... Some of the most unique uses of all of those crafts are often found in horror movies, surprisingly. 

And even all of that might fail if direction is weak. :)

Nikolay,
what I wanted to say is, that I got some experience in watching trailers and guessing how the movie is. It's a minor percentage of fails. Sometimes I'm positively surprised by a movie, which trailer told me: "What an awful movie". But that's rare. In most cases, I'm right. In most trailers you can see, if they used cheap cams and if that is part of the making or not. Same for the stage setting. I can smell cheap locations. In minor percent of cases I'm wrong. If the acting  looks bad in the trailer, you got a good chance that it is bad over the whole movie. If the story looks interesting, I might skip the other impressions and give it a try.

As genres go? Horror ain't my favorite. At least not enough to have a decade's worth of a conclusion over.

It can also be a simple sentence of what you think about these 10 movies. But you don't have to, if you don't want to state something.

"The best horror films aren't the goriest. They existentially wreak havoc on one's understanding of the world and human nature. Cosmic horror shatters and reshapes people's oversimplified worldviews. That there are worse things out there than serial killers and silly ghosts who throw furniture around your living room."

I wouldn't count 'Parasite' as horror, even though it is a horrific scenario for a house owner. It's more like a really bad charade. :)

Thank you Stephen. That's a pretty good video. :D

I have one in common with her for sure. For me 'Hereditary' is number one of the last decade. This suggestion is about personal prefernces in horror movies, so it's ok for me, when other say, they will never put it on their 'best' list.

Now I want to watch 'The Wailing', it seems to be a pretty good movie.

Breumaster,

Have u seen Raw (2016)?

If not, please watch it. I know you love horror films and that's why I'm recommending this.

My guess; you haven't seen it, 'cause if you did, it'd be on your top ten list. :)
