    BIOZOMBIE by a nose (1998). [REC] is very good, too. I just watched that last week. I like a lot of those movies listed, but I find myself revisiting BIOZOMBIE more regularly than the others.

    Wow - so many great films there. However, I went for Dark Water, because it had an emotional impact. I've also shown it during my movie evenings - and it's one of the rare times I've actually seen people cry during a home viewing... So yeah, that one.

    I went with The Orphanage, had some good scares and an emotional impact. I would choose The Hypnotist AKA Hypnosis as my second favorite.A really cool flick that doesn't get much recognition.

    Battle Royale easily gets my vote. I've revisited it more than any of these films and it still packs quite a punch. Nice variety on this list! :cool: Some other favorites include: Uzumaki, Suicide Club, Ju-On: The Grudge, and A Tale of Two Sisters.

    A Tale of Two Sisters for me...I've watched that more times than any other horror film from the past 10 years for sure. A lot of close runner-up's though, like Audition, Haute Tension, Suicide Circle, The Orphanage, and Kairo.

    Very tough choice.

    It ultimately came down to a choice between Inside, Them, and Orphanage.

    At the end, Inside is the choice I selected. It is gory, creepy, and nerve-wracking! I also picked it over "Them" because the villain in "Inside" is two folds creepier than the ones in the other two movies. It's also just so well executed that I can't vote against it.

    I rank "Them" a close 2nd and "Orphange" 3rd.

    Alright, I've narrowed it down to five:

    Haute Tension
    Inside
    Ju-On: The Grudge
    Kairo
    A Tale of Two Sisters

    C'mon, I'm a Libra- I'm indecisive!
