Look Back at 2018 – The Best of ScareTissue

2018 Top Ten

We’re well into the year (hell we’re nearly a full two months into 2019) but I was flipping through the site and realized I’d never done our yearly ‘Best of the Year’ post for 2018. I’m always interested to see what content our readers are interested in. The ScareTissue writers family continues to grow and in 2018 we managed 119 posts! We’ve started off slow in 2019 (this is post #8 of the year) but rest assured we’re not going anywhere. Stay tuned to the site and social media for all the latest.

And with that…

I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone that contributed to ScareTissue last year. I’d also like to thank the fans for interacting with us across social media and here on the site. THANK YOU!!!

Thanks for an outstanding 2018 horror fans. Here’s to an even better 2019!


I've been a fan of horror and slasher movies for as long as I can remember. I consider the original Halloween to be the best horror movie of all time and my guilty pleasure horror flick would be The Exorcist III. You can find me on Twitter at @406Northlane or TikTok @406Northlane where I'm sure I'll offend you at least once a day.
