My thoughts on the above list:

Several of them I have listed as being from previous years: Tigers Are Not AfraidOne Cut of the DeadHigh Life, etc. 

I really liked Tigers Are Not Afraid and Midsommar.

I really disliked One Cut of the DeadHigh Life,  and Glass.

I thought The Dead Don't DieClimaxCrawlGodzillaIn the Tall GrassVelvet Buzzsaw, and Us were pretty good and worth a see.

I thought Child's PlayBrightburn, and Hellboy were passable.

I'd skip Eli, and Nightmare Cinema.

I haven't seen the others.

I'm surprised by the omission of the highly-praised The Lighthouse and The Lodge. I haven't seen either of them, but look forward to.

"Parasite" would be my choice for best film of the year period- it's funny and horrifying.  The less you know the better about this cinema masterpiece

I saw It: Chapter Two only because I saw the first one. I didn't find it scary. I loved the friendship between the kids in the first movie. I appreciate that it was well-made and a lot of effort went into making it. Annabelle Comes Home had its moments, but really I think Hollywood is making way too many movies from The Conjuring universe. I prefer to stick to the original Conjuring films. They're the best. Pet Sematary started out good and then completely derailed somewhere in the middle. The only thing they got right was the cat. Just my opinion.

I agree with you - "It: Chapter 2" was lame...."Annabelle Comes Home" was lazy...and "Pet Sematary" has the stupidest ending of the year
