2019 has welcomed plenty of horror films, from monster flicks and ghostly tales to mind-bending thrillers and stories of survival. 

But not every terrifying movie that's come out this year was a smash hit. 

Here are 10 of the best and 10 of the worst horror films to come in 2019, so far.

As a note, the scores listed throughout the piece were accurate at the time of publication but are subject to change.

"Sweetheart" charmed critics with its simple premise and captivating star.

"Us" proved itself as an electrifying follow-up to "Get Out" (2017).

Critics called the action thriller "Ready or Not" darkly funny.

"Little Monsters" earned praise for breathing new life into the zombie-horror genre.

Critics found "Depraved" to be a welcome addition to a plethora of "Frankenstein" remakes.

"Girl on the Third Floor" was praised for its unsettling atmosphere and imagery.

Critics adored "The Hole in the Ground" for its dread-inducing story.

The slow-burn pace of "Midsommar" captivated critics.

Critics called "Crawl" exciting and teeth-rattling.

"The Lodge" was praised for its disturbing premise and talented lead.

On the other hand, critics panned "Critters Attack!" for lacking energy and charm.

"The Prodigy" seemed to rely on jump scares more than storytelling.

"47 Meters Down: Uncaged" was called "brainless."

Critics said "In the Tall Grass" stretched its premise too thin.

"Don't Let Go" was called convoluted and tonally messy.

Per critics, "Tone-Deaf" mishandled its message on culture clash.

Critics felt that "The Silence" wasted a talented cast.

Critics called "The Curse of La Llorona" clunky and listless.

Critics said "The Haunting of Sharon Tate" exploited its subject matter.

"Jacob's Ladder" was widely dismissed as an unnecessary remake.
