    Devil's Rejects first.

    Land and High Tension tied for second.

    1) Devil's Rejects
    2) High Tension
    3) Land of the Dead

    The Fog should be on there for shits & giggles :)

    I liked High Tension, but like most twist-ending movies, I can't really imagine myself watching it multiple times.

    The Devil's Rejects is my pick. Aside from it, the best films on the list are Haute Tension and Kaïro, but neither of those are even remotely 2005 films, so I didn't consider them.

    My vote is definitely for "The Descent". Easily the most visceral horror experience in years!!!!! Only released thus far in the UK, I highly recommend it!
    A true masterpiece!

    I chose LAND OF THE DEAD since it's the only one that I am considering buying; but even that is more for the completion of the series than because it was worth a purchase.
    Sorely disappointed in DEVIL'S REJECTS. I may give it another try down the road and see if I like it any better but I'm in no hurry.

    The Devil's Rejects, with Land Of The Dead an extremely close second.

    I voted for High Tension as it kept me entertained despite its logical flaws. It has a great, dark and oppresive quality to it and the violence and gore seemed intrinsic to the storyline.
    In contrast, I also loved The Devil's Rejects and have seen that many more times than High Tension, however in many instances Devil's Rejects seems to present violence solely for the sake of shock value and a couple of scenes were just too derivative of films like Last House On The Left and TCM II. I would argue that Rejects is perhaps the more enjoyable film, while High Tension is better realized overall.
    The Amityville Horror remake was also a very well executed film, and heads and shoulders above dreck like The Fog remake. A great cast and a really cool seventies feel-I also love the way the babysitter scene was updated and reinvented.
    House of Wax was decent too, despite a slow first half. I would not consider this a remake of the Vincent Price film by any means however. The idea of an actual House Of Wax was interesting and the film was enhanced by several inventive and gruesome death scenes. Elisha Cuthbert was pretty nice to look at too.
    Land of the Dead was just ok for me, as I prefer the first three installments by a long shot. Leguizamo and Argento did save this film for me, and it was probably the best zombie film I had seen in a long time-very realistic gore scenes here too.
    Exorcism of Emily Rose was more courtroom drama than horror but I also enjoyed that one. Very well acted and engrossing. Saw II was much better than the first IMO, and will be much more re-watchable once it hits dvd.
    Which leaves the pure shit-Cursed, White Noise and The Skeleton Key-these were some of the worst films I have ever sat through alongside the aforementioned Fog remake.
    Have'nt seen the rest but I am on my way to Wolf Creek right now. Just my opinions. :)
