BillChete, a well-known horror DJ, infamous horror film critic and former horror podcaster, has been a big influence and inspiration to me as a horror film critic. I have been listening to BillChete’s various podcasts and myriad horror movie reviews since the beginning of Planet Macabre in late 2010. Since that time, I have podcasted—and fought incessantly with—BillChete about horror movies on The Weekly Horror Movie Podcast and Horror Metropolis, the predecessors of this podcast.
Of all the horror film criticism BillChete produces, my favorite work of his has always been his Top 10 of the Year lists, which he has been creating since 2005. For those who don’t know what these lists represent, each year BillChete watches every (or nearly every) horror film release, which means his 10 picks are well-informed and the cream of the crop, as far as he’s concerned. So, I asked him if he’d allow me to feature all his lists here at HorrorMoviePodcast.com, and he agreed. I can personally tell you that I enjoy BillChete’s recommendations 99% of the time, so you’re guaranteed to have some good picks below.
