Alright, fiends, it’s time to narrow my list down to a top 3! Last week I posted my “Top 19 of 2019” (you can see that by clicking here) and I promised that I would give you my 3 favorites as a part of the Horror News Network staff’s week of favorites. This year was tough as there were really a lot of solid films to choose from, but I like my choices. Without further ado, here they are:
Larry’s Top 3 Picks
#1: Tigers Are Not Afraid
Every once in a while, a film hits you like a truck and sticks with you; you think about it for days and discuss it with friends and strangers alike. This year, Issa López’s Tigers Are Not Afraid was that film for me. Estrella is a young girl who is granted three wishes by her school teacher while they are hiding from a gang shooting going on outside of the class. When the girl’s mother is taken by a local drug lord, she uses one of those wishes but as often is the case with magic in films, things don’t turn out as she’d hoped. Estrella flees her empty home and falls in with a gang of orphaned children who spend their time trying to stay safe in the local Mexican gang wars.
