TOP HORROR MOVIES of 2000--2009 Part Two

  • Jan 13, 2010
In all fairness there are quite a few excellent contenders that I have yet to see, so this list will be undergoing some up dating as I see them.
End of the Line (movie)
Canadian producer/writer/director Maurice Devereaux turns in an extremely effective flick about a young psychiatric nurse who watches the world crumble around her one night in the subway. Is everone going insane or is it really the end of the world?
See the full review, "IS IT REALLY THE END OF THE LINE?".
Pan's Labyrinth
What can be said about this film that hasn't already been said?
I was very impressed with the first effort from these film makers (the Aussie zombie flick UNDEAD that turned out to be a lot more than it seemed), but I never expected this slick, nifty, flick from Sophomores! Vampires have taken over the world and are punching their time cards just like they did when they were still breathing--but a serious food shortage has all of the living and the undead facing extinction.
Shaun of the Dead
Simon Peg's comedy of zombies running amuck in England. "We're coming to get you, Barbara."
Zombieland (2009)
Whoever knew that there was so much outrageous fun to be had during the zombie long as you kept up with your cardio.
See the full review, "Zombie Heaven".
Vampires run amok in Sweden.
The Devil's Backbone
A ghost story from Guillermo del Toro set in an orphanage during the Spanish Civil War.
I Sell the Dead
Grave robbers like you've never seen them before, I can almost guarantee it.
See the full review, "Like Burke and Hare--But With a Twist".
From Director Stuart Gordon and writer Dennis Paoli comes this nifty take on Poe's story. I can bet you've never seen it presented quite this way before. Jeffry Combs makes a very convincing Edgar Allen Poe too.
A young man confronts a demon on its home turf in an attempt to rescue his girl friend from Hell.
Dvd cover
Brutal British splatter comedy about a kidnapping gone horribly wrong.
See the full review, "A Nice Place to Live But I Wouldn't Want to Visit There".
Planet Terror
Violent, funny movie about toxic something or other turning people into fleshing eating fiends, but even if it wasn't good it would still be worth price of admission just to see Quentin Tarantino die a horrible death.
movie poster
A great twist on the 80s' staple of a fraternity initiation within a supposedly haunted house.
See the full review, ""I don't like computers and I hate video games."".
Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon
Great little horror comedy about a young film maker doing a documentary about the day to day life of a serial killer and how he goes about his craft.
The Mist
Stephen King adaptation with a touch of H.P. Lovecraft. A group of people hide out in a grocery store as onsters from another dimension rip their way into out world. Neat ending too.
Wind Chill
A college girl accept a ride home with someone she doesn't know--never a good idea. Not usually my kind of film, but surprisingly well done and not cut from the same cloth as other's of its ilk.
Movie poster
Lots of great atmosphere in this French werewolf flick.
U.S. Dvd cover
A young horror writer gets dragged into her fictional world.
Korean vampire flick about a Catholic priest who becomes infected with a vampire virus after engaging in experiments on another virus. Things go from bad to worse when he falls for the wife of an old friend.
The Others
Nice ghost story with a slight twist.
American Zombie
Grace Lee's mockumentary about the lives of the L.A's undead and how they cope with the day to day problems of zombieism. Not to be confused with ZOMBIES ANONYMOUS.
George Romero's Diary of the Dead
The most divisive of all Romero's DEAD films.
See the full review, "Everyone claims to have "gotten" the message, but is there more?".

What did you think of this list?

Fun to Read

interesting list. Yep, Pan's Labyrith does have some horror elements. Need to see # 15 and 4

Far more of a horror film than the fantasy film people were lead to believe it was.

Another great list. I saw The Others but could not get into it. I may rewatch it (on videotape). I always wanted to see Shaun of the Dead, loved the previews. How about Serial Mom?
January 14, 2010
Didn't see it, but even though I put a lot of comedies on my horror lists, I don't think it would have a high enough horror quotient to qualify.
January 14, 2010
True. It was mild horror; a lot of knifing and such. Mom gets angry that her daughter's boyfriend got dumped so she meets him and lets him have it. She does other stuff, too. A dark comedy to say the least.

It's hard to draw the line sometimes. I let EATING RAOUL in and that's about a married couple where the wife poses as a dominatrix so that they can kill the perverts who answer the ads they place in kinky magazines, then they hand the bodies over to Raoul who sells them for dog food. (The money they make is going towards their big dream--a fine dining restaurant.)

I am the poster child for inertia. Where ever I am is where I plan to stay FOREVER.   So much so in fact that it took me decades to understand the punchline about why   the chicken … more
