- Session 9 (2001)
Movies like this one are rare. It requires you to use your brain. If you’re into in-your-face, blood-and-guts horror, this isn’t your movie. If you’re into brilliant, psychological thrillers you’ll be glad to see that there are still great films like this being made. The script was well written, the direction was stylish, and the acting was superb. A must-see movie.
- The Hills Have Eyes (2006)
Shocking. Disturbing. Hard to watch. Everything a good film like this should be. There are so many mixed reviews of this movie but I think it’s wonderfully done. Lots of blood, gore, and guts. Possibly even better than the original. By the end of the movie, you’re ready to jump through the screen and kill some of these mutants yourself.
- Trick R’ Treat (2007)
This one’s different. It’s not that scary. Not that gory. It doesn’t have to be. It’s simply the pure essence of Halloween. The perfect mix of Halloween tradition and horror. Urban legends and murder. If you loved Halloween as a child, and you love horror movies, you will love this movie.
- Drag Me to Hell (2009)
There are a lot of people giving this movie horrible reviews. No, it’s not the scariest thing ever. No, it’s not the goriest movie of all time. Yes, it’s pretty predictable. But what makes this movie great isn’t any of those things. This movie could be real. It’s laid out in a way that makes you believe that this could happen. You get rude with some little old lady at the supermarket this morning? Are you sure she didn’t curse you to an eternity in hell? It’s just so simple, it could be true. And that is why it’s scary.
- Frailty (2001)
When a widowed father wakes up his two sons with a disturbing revelation, they are torn as to whether or not they should believe him. As the story unfolds and terrifying events take place, you learn more about the father, the two sons, and their destinies. There are plenty of twists, all the way up to the end. The plot never leaves a dull moment. A truly great movie.
- Ginger Snaps (2000)
This is a unique teen horror flick. It is one of the freshest werewolf movies in recent years. Not your average teen slasher horror film. The transformation from preteen to puberty to werewolf is wonderfully done. The relationship between the two sisters is strange. They’re close – almost too close. The action scenes are good. And it has a great black comedy feel to it. A very original take on the werewolf genre.
- Martyrs (2008)
There is no other way to describe this movie other than to say it is a monster. It is bold, stunning and brutal. It takes you from loving it to hating it back and forth countless times. It is often compared to Hostel and other “torture-porn” films, but this is a huge mistake. Truly a brilliant, surprising film. Beautifully shot. Perfectly paced. Wonderful performances. This is one that will stick with you.
- 28 Days Later (2002)
At first glance, this is just another zombie movie. But upon further inspection, you find what sets this one apart from the rest. Where others focused on the gore. The fighting. The blood spilling scenes and background music. This one focused on that helpless sad feeling you get in the pit of your stomach throughout it all. Not just another zombie flick.
- A Tale of Two Sisters (2003)
Simply put, this movie is nothing short of a masterpiece. It is beautiful and heart-wrenching. At the same time, it’s completely disorienting. Great at keeping you guessing. You think you have it figured out, you don’t. It explains itself very well at the end, and not a moment sooner.
- REC (2007)
This is a truly great movie. The story itself isn’t very original. It’s been done over and over. Everyone has seen a zombie movie. This one is different. The cramped setting. The handheld camera. No way possible to get away from what is trying to eat you. It’s completely unsettling. If you haven’t seen the Hollywood replica (Quarantine) yet, see this one first. Even if you have seen it, watch this one anyway. You will not be disappointed.
