    Not a bad year in my opinion. Besides, I don't get all the Vanishing on 7th Street hate.

    Didn't make the cut:

    21. Vanishing on 7th Street (16,942 votes)
    22. 6 Souls (Shelter) (15,917 votes)
    23. Rubber (15,376 votes)
    24. Julia's Eyes (13,240 votes)
    25. Rare Exports (13,011 votes)
    26. My Soul to Take (12,131 votes)
    27. Dylan Dog: Dead of Night (10,106 votes)
    28. And Soon the Darkness (9,621 votes)
    29. Mother's Day (8,414 votes)
    30. The Reef (7,677 votes)

    Insidious (I don't love it as much as most people seem to, but it wasn't bad)
    Black Death (I thought this was excellent)
    I Spit on Your Grave
    The Wolfman
    Piranha

    Also enjoyed Rubber, and Rare Exports. I came close to voting for A Serbian Film, too, although I wouldn't exactly say that I "enjoyed" it....

    Still have a few from this year to see (The Ward, Insidious, Let Me In, The Crazies) but still a fine year.

    I Spit On Your Grave (really surprised about the quality of this one, well made on all levels and an improvement over the original)
    Paranormal Activity 2 (the whole fan gimmick is one of my favorite scare setpieces)
    Saw 3D (great series closes on a lower note than 4-6 but still fun)
    The Last Exorcism (powerful film, The Conjuring owes some to it, surprised by where this goes and the heart it has)
    Piranha (where did Aja's style go? Still plenty of fun at least. "Wet...Tee...Shirt...")

    I liked quite a few titles from this year. Unfortunately I guess I'm in the minority when it comes to Insidious as I just didn't care for it. I saw the trailer yesterday for Part 2 coming out in a couple of months and it didn't look that good to me either.

    Tucker and Dale vs. Evil easily wins the year for me. All that hype Cabin in the Woods got for absolutely no reason, T&DVE actually delivered.

    Insidious is good, not memorable. It's competent filmmaking rather than great filmmaking. I'll admit it put me on edge slightly but like most ghost movies, it didn't do anything with that. Couple jump scares, woo-wee right? But, great imagery.

    The Crazies remake should have been everything they hyped The Mist up to be. The Mist is royal shit and treats the fucking abhorrent CGI like it's cool and dying people in a crisis situation like potato chips. Oop, there goes another one. Yeah, I saw the one with "The" ending but it didn't feel like it was treating life and death seriously. This fucking movie, on the other hand...: huge improvement in the tonal department. But, 'bout halfway through, things got stupid. Not too stupid, there were just a handful of incidents that destroyed the film's good status. And now it's disappointing. But there was a lot riding on this movie.

    File Piranha 3-D under the same category as The Mist: it wants big reactions from people during the death scenes but it can't be grown up about the story, the characters can't be adults, and the tone can't be genuine. It's not subversive, it's just more of the same Girls Gone Wild type shit that people thought it was subverting. It's basically the Spring Breakers everyone who hates Spring Breakers says it is. Spring Breakers has a brain in its head and everyone says it doesn't. This movie has no brain, yet everyone says it does.

    Rubber is all about a great ending that probably should have been a YouTube video and nothing more. But... the effect of sitting through 1 terrible hour to get to this ending kind of made the ending as amazing as it was.

    The ending to Rubber is one of the best endings to a horror film I've ever friggin' seen. But the rest of it suuuucks.

    The Ward is probably worse than both Rubber and Piranha. I've forgotten most of it.

    Holy cow we are almost completely the opposite with most of these films. I love The Mist. Frank Darabont wanted it to be filmed to be in black and white, but the studio (Paramount?) refused. This explains most of the poor CGI. It reminds me of Night of the Living Dead with more fleshed out characters.

    The Ward has a very difficult distinction of not only being Carpenter's return to filmmaking since the Ghost of Mars fiasco (excluding the Masters of Horror films), but it looks as though it is his swan song. I really liked the characters and wanted to see more of them. I enjoy the film enough to own it.

    I love Insidious (and its sequels) and think Cabin in the Woods was a good film that could have been great.

    Piranha was the first movie I watched in 3D after purchasing my Samsung 52" 3D plasma. The 3D was nice, the film wasn't. My wife was annoyed that we spent the $6 to rent it.

    Pirahna 3D is the shit. Mindless popcorn flick. That one scene in particular with all the victims near the shoreline...... nothing short of legendary. I believe I've mentioned it before but I caught this in 3D at the theaters on an 8th of shrooms and I never wanted the movie to end. Amazing is an understatement. Love this movie.

    I also really love Tucker n Dale......very funny, endless entertainment. "Enough of the fucking board games" hahahaha

    Pretty great year for cheese: Tucker & Dale, another Resident Evil, Piranha, Stake Land, and then there is Trollhunter in all its weird fun.
