    There are 4 films I can think of that recently have had this reaction with fans. They either think that the film is a shining example of what is great about horror films or they think they are an insult to the genre and genuinely disliking the film to the point of hate. Splitting the fan base right down the middle these are the film i find have caused the most heated debate.

    Pick the ones you enjoyed from the list.
     
  2. I enjoyed all of them but I liked Blair Witch the best. Cabin Fever was okay, House was good but didn't live up to the hype(Devils Rejects looks better), and Open Water was a nice change of pace.

    2.Open Water
    2.House of 1000 Corpses (Can't decide enjoyed them both allot)
    4.Cabin Fever.

    You're right about these films. There's no in between!!

    I absolutely HATE Blair Witch, but loved House of 1000 Corpses and Cabin Fever! Haven't seen Open Water yet.

    I liked all but Open Water. Cabin Fever was ok but, i very much enjoy Blair Witch and Corpses. I was bored to death with Open Water and too me it was the one of the most overrated movies from last year.

    1. Corpses
    2. Witch
    3. Cabin
    4. Water

    I loved both House Of 1000 Corpses and Cabin Fever, but absolutely hated The Blair Witch Project. Open Water was an in-betweener for me. I did enjoy it, but I don't feel it would hold up to repeat viewings. With Blair Witch I feel it would have affected me the same as Open Water, but I didn't see it until about 3 months after it's video release.

    Also, it seems Haute Tension could pretty much be up on that list as well.

    Haute Tension came to mind but I find on the whole most people enjoyed the movie it was just the ending that causes debate so I didn't include it.

    For example on this poll we made out of 94 people who voted only 3 said they didn't like the film.

    OK, I like them all, some more than others. something like:
    1) Blair Witch
    2) Cabin Fever
    3) House of 1000 Corpses
    4) Open Water
    Sort of a toss-up between Cabin and House, though.

    The only one there that I wish I hadn't bothered with was "House of a 100 Corpses". The rest were pretty not bad to good.

    Cabin Fever was the only one I really enjoyed enough to actually watch it again.

    The Blair Witch Project: I agree with Shannafey, I HATED it with a passion.
    Open Water: Boooooooooorinnnngggggg.
    House of 1000 corpses: Interesting a little, but ultimately quickly forgettable.

    Blair Witch was a cool little experiment that I thought worked very well. House of 1000 Corpses was fun but I don't want to see it again. Cabin Fever had its moments but was overall pretty ... well ... amateurish if u ask me! And it never seemed to end even though it had long since lost all of its steam. Open Water would have been a nifty little short film. 30 minutes. 15 minutes? But feature length? I simply never cared about the characters. It wasn't boring but it felt pointless.

    The Blair Witch Project: Brilliant film. Great conception, great execution.
    Cabin Fever: Just a fun ride. Not amazing, but not terrible. Pure entertainment.
    House of 1000 corpses: Childish, stupid nonsense. Suggested "Homage" to hide how much it lacked in ideas.
    Open Water: Brilliant. Great tension, and very well controlled. It knew where the line between tension and boredom was, and avaoided getting tedious (although I guess the potential was there). Amazing.

    I voted for all of them, as I think they are all really good movies. My favorite two are Cabin Fever and Open Water though.
