    I have to say this was a pretty good year horror wise. Not the greatest mind you, but there were more than enough to create a solid top ten list for me. Now there a still several films I have yet to see (Piranha, Let Me In, Hatchet 2, Last Exorcism) and if they live up to the hype I will amend this list.


    My Top Ten Horror Films Of 2010
    1) Rec 2
    2) Human Centipede: First Sequence
    3) Frozen
    4) Lake Mungo
    5) A Serbian Film
    6) Dread
    7) Paranormal Activity 2
    8) Suck
    9) After.Life
    10) The Descent 2

    Of the rest, here they are in descending order:

    2. Daybreakers
    3. Splice
    4. The Wolfman
    5. The Crazies
    6. A Nightmare on Elm Street

    Tying this in with the Box Office Horror: 2009 vs 2010 thread, I am disturbed by how many genuinely bad films are making some of these lists. I guess 2010 was a pretty bad year for horror.

    Agreed. So many average movies came out this year, saw nothing that really blew me away.

    I wouldn't consider any films on my list "genuinely bad films".

    I count three, plus a pointless remake (not The Crazies) and Paranormal Activity 2, neither of which I will ever see.

    I can't agree with that. Well which three would you say are genuinely bad films?

    In no order whatsoever:

    Piranha 3D
    Human Centipede
    Frozen (best I've seen this year)
    Wolfman (great remake)
    The Crazies (decent redo)
    Daybreakers (loved the first 2/3rds, poor last act)
    Descent 2 (shouldn't exist, but fun as a "what if" story)

    I need to see Triangle, that looks promising and my hopes are pretty high.
    Also need to see Suck, which will happen soon as I own it, just haven't got to watch it yet. I doubt that's very horror though, looks like comedy to me.

    Maybe you didn't like them but calling them genuinely bad films? There is no way I can agree with you there. Especially when it comes to Serbian Film.

    I think we have to agree to disagree then. I have so many problems with A Serbian Film that I don't even know where to begin.

    Having just seen Black Swan. the more I think about it the less problem I have in calling it a Psychological Horror film and it goes straight to the top of my list. Even Aronofsky has referred to it as such. It's not your typical horror film structure wise but It's Intense, Gory, Scary, Psychologically and visually Creepy and atmospheric. Everything I look for in a Horror Film.

    I missed out on my usual festival screenings this year, so there's a lot of smaller release stuff that I have yet to see. My top ten this year would be a list by default since the majority of horror flicks I've seen were pretty mediocre.

    I loved Dread and mostly loved Frozen. Piranha 3D was a lot of fun but not exactly first caliber film making. The Nightmare remake had a great performance at its centre but was pretty weak overall. Daybreakers was good for a watch but doesn't hold up to multiple viewings. The Crazies was slick, entertaining and completely hollow at its core. Wolfman was terrible. I haven't seen Black Swan yet but feel fairly confident in saying that its the best horror film of the year. It doesn't have a high bar to clear.

    The best I can muster is a top five, and even that's stretching it.

    01. Black Swan (sight unseen)
    02. Dread
    03. Frozen
    04. Splice
    05. Piranha 3D

    An underwhelming year for horror for me. I thought at the very least the Night Of The Demons remake was fun, everything else was either 'not my style of horror' or just plain sucked.
