Here Are the Top 10 Political Horror Films Ever Made

That's one thing I absolutely adore about the horror genre: it's a convenient medium, which an artist can convey and communicate a specific message without literally hitting you on the head. Think political here, people. Something about the gravitas of a cornerstone event potentially changing the course of history or society brings with it a sense of horror, actually -- so why not display it in the most outrageous way as a way of making a massive statement?

Think Zombies, for Instance: Just About Every Zombie Movie's a Political Satire!

But so many other films out there accomplish the same with such creativity that you may not even realize even the best of films are somewhat based on some political message or motivation. That makes these works of art true art, genius creations laced underneath with that political tone revealing the truth of a situation and saying, "Yep, that sh*t did suck, and here's a blunt portrayal of it."

Us viewers and readers love getting a message like that without it being preached to us. Because we then understand it from that point of view -- the story itself, with all its intensity, suspense and horror -- and relate to it. These undoubtedly are the best political horror films out there, and you wouldn't have ever guessed that they were political. Click the links to find out why they're on this list, and trust me: you'll be shocked.
And if you really analyze many, many, many other horror films/books out there, you just might see that there's an inherent message behind them as well.

Truthfully, That's the Horror Genre's Secret Weapon

It's priceless. Endlessly genuine. You see? It's not simply about vampires, flesh-eaters, werewolves, or other paranormal things. There's a deep agenda behind these stories, and that's what makes them so rich. Love it.

Why THE FACULTY Has so Much in Common With Body Snatchers and Pink Floyd

The Faculty took the idea of the invasion and simply localized it. Instead of a planet -- everyone is in danger, no discrimination, nothing to signify what these aliens want or are looking for -- the alien(s) instead focused their effect on just those few teachers. Now there's an interesting high concept.

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.

'It Follows': Not Just a Cautionary Tale About Casual Sex

And in all its basic-ness, you'd be shocked to realize that it's not just a linear-type film with one main idea. There are actually a ton of deep meanings behind all of the frames, the shots, the sequences, the scenes. With obviously the underlying principle, the whole point of it: meaningless sex is bad!
