In response to Woopak's list of horror flix of the decade I offer my own, also off the top of my head and (as usual) NOT in order of preference. I wish I could say that I have seen as many of the Asian films as he has, but alas I have not. You will notice that my list does show my preference for horror comedy and for independent, low budget films. Enjoy!
Forget all that suff you've read about how this flick is a metaphor for puberty--it's a great werewolf flick from creative friends in the frozen north...which just so happens to be a metaphor for puberty.
A brilliant film that works on two levels; on one is a mindless science fiction/horror flick, and the other is drawing comparisions between persecution suffered by the film's aliens and the apartheid the film's writer/director witnessed growing up in South Africa.
A beautifully filmed tale of a mermaid who's held captive and put on display in a freak show, only to be stolen by a greedy man who plans to take her to America. Once on board ship he learns just how dangerous she can be.
The next logical step in the evolution of the TV reality game show from Maurice Devereaux. Contestants vie for huge prize money (and their lives) against a group of wacky weirdos aremed with axes and chainsaws.

Would you accept an invitation to a "muder" party if you found it lying in the street on Halloween? Our hapless hero does, and it does not go well.

A young couple on a camping trip are taken hostage by a gun toting thug and his girl friend, but that's the least of their worries--all 4 wind up trapped inside an isolated gas station, their lives endangered by a bizarre parasite.
