3. Get Out
4. Housebound
5. The Witch
6. Train to Busan
7. The Babadook

Maybe you'll find a small conclusion line for your 10 candidates?

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

Why;

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

I will find a conclusion, and I'm gonna watch a Horror movie on my T.V because I have just seen 9 horror movies from the 2010s.

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?

In ten years seen less than 10 horror movies? Seems like you're really not into 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.

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.

A conclusion about horror movies of the last ten years. What's your issue about it, how would you describe the last horror-decade? What was it for you like?

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."
