I've yet to see Haute Tension also, but I'm expecting it to place up there too!
House of 1,000 Corpses edges out the competition just slightly. I'd say my #2 is probably Haute Tension but that might become #1 once I see it with subtitles.
1.dawn of the dead brought zombies back to life my pick
2.shaun of the dead
Frailty, The Others, The Ring, The Devil's Backbone, Dog Soldiers and Bubba Ho Tep were some of the horror films I enjoyed most in the past decade. Wrong Turn was cool too, but very derivative of seventies films like Just before Dawn and Hills Have Eyes.
I choose House Of 1000 Corpses. It was just extreme violence because in the movie, every character was 100% insane! Highly enjoyable. The music, the people and the setting. I can't wait for The Devil's Rejects.
i chose, shaun of the dead, followed by haute tension, bubba ho-tep,cabin fever.... then gigli....
ginger snaps- period- nothing else is close with the exception of any of the asian movies - only other horror movies being done that are original or fresh at all....(and shaun of the dead gets the honorable mention- it was very good also)
oh sorry- i missed "may" on the list- i really enjoyed that too- great acting by the woman that played may- but not close to ginger snaps still in my opinion
Ginger Snaps, with The Devil's Backbone a close second.
Out of those, and I've not seen them all, I went with "Dark Water". It is such an affecting film, it stayed with me days after watching it. It's themes of parental love, or abuse through generations, and that it brings these things front and center - leaving the horror almost as an aside, is incredibly powerful. It's a human story first, and a ghost story second. Wonderful stuff. I have shown this to several groups of people now, it never fails to bring silence to the room once it is over, with one occasion where it brought real tears. Excellent stuff.
1-Shaun of the Dead, wonderful tribute to films past. I think it fits perfectly with movies like Return of the Living Dead.
2-Dawn of the Dead. This has lost impact over repeated viewings but I'd still give it a spot in my top 10 favorite zombie flicks.
3-The Ring. I think it's safe to say that this will probably be the big horror franchise this decade. It's not a popular viewpoint, but I like it better than the original.
Honorable mentions to Fraility, Dog Soldiers, and The Eye. All the others I either haven't seen or just don't like much [House of 1000 Corpses, Ginger Snaps, 28 Days Later] Others, like Saw, just didn't leave much of an impression.
1. Shaun Of The Dead
2. Dawn Of The Dead
3. 28 Days Later
I had a hard time deciding between Ginger Snaps (1 & 2), Shaun of the Dead, and Open Water....and May is a close second.
In the end voted for Shaun though because it's the perfect mix of horror and comedy. didn't feel forced at all. awesome movie!!!
i think it would go like this:
1. Shaun of the Dead
2. Ginger Snaps 2
3. Ginger Snaps
4. Open Water
6. Dog Soldiers
7. Ginger Snaps 3
8. Dawn of the Dead
haven't seen Two Sisters yet, but I get the feeling it will be up on this list when I do.
If you asked me to pick the best horror film of the 90s, that'd be easy. However, this was very hard, but in the end I went with Frailty. The other huge favorites that were in the running for me were:
My Little Eye
Perhaps I'm forgetting something not on this list,but of whats here I'd go with MAY,a great script and an unforgettable performance by Angela Bettis.SHAUN OF THE DEAD and FRAILTY were exceptional,I also admired THE MACHINIST,a subtle but effective picture.
I wanted to include Open Water and a few others like The Machinist, Battle Royale, Donnie Darko, and Signs but since I only had 19 entries I tried to narrow it down to mostly traditional horror films.
If I had to pick a top 5 I would go with
1.Haute Tension - To me this is the essence a what horror film is suppose to be like.
2.The Eye - Probably my favorite Asian horror film that put me through so many different emotions while watching it.
3.May – My favorite film is Carrie and this came the closest that I have seen to capturing that feel.
4.Devil’s Backbone – The most effective horror film I have seen set almost entirely in the day time.
5. Shaun of the Dead – After American Werewolf in London and possibly Evil Dead 2 the best Horror/Comedy ever made.
maybe i need to watch it again, but shaun of the dead just didnt do it for me. i liked bits and pieces but i wasnt overly impressed.
