if the requirement is having seen the film at least 5 times (!), then I'm down to:

Grindhouse
Ginger Snaps

Otherwise, I'd say:

The Descent
Tucker and Dale
Cabin in the Woods
May

To full fill that criteria there's only one horror film I can think of since 2000 that I've gone back and watch 5 or more times:

Puppet Master vs. Demonic Toys (2004)

I'll throw that in most Decembers. It's very Christmasy, very bizarre and fun. If it had nothing to do with Christmas I probably wouldn't watch it so much, but there you have it.

Not very many I'm sorry to say. Cabin in the Woods has potential though.

The entire Saw series! I don't care what the haters say or think, I love these flicks and continue to watch them all over and over.

I think Frailty might be the best movie to come out since 2000. Not sure how many watches it has total, 3 since I started keeping track in 2004.

Cabin in the Woods will be there, watched twice and I've only owned it a month! Plus it was just as good on second viewing even knowing what was coming! Innkeepers did not hold up well to a second viewing in a month for comparison.

Jason X! 5 times since 2006, at least 4 before that. It might be my favorite Friday just for replay value and good silly fun.

Wow, good effort. I liked the film when I first watched it but just popped it back in less than a week ago and couldn't finish it. It's extremely lame, badly acted and has a cheap look. I'm not sure why I ever thought it was decent

5 times is pushing it for films I've gone back to. The ones I can think of that might qualify are:
Freddy vs Jason
Jason X
and Hatchet

Jason X is definitely my favorite Friday the 13th movie.

Oh yeah, Grindhouse and Dagon definitely fall into the 5x category for me. Hell, I saw Grindhouse three times in the theater.

It's incredibly lame, filled entirely with bad acting and completely cheap looking. But then one year I watched Santa Claus Conquers the Martians four times so clearly such things don't stop me. I haven't watched PMvDT this year. I wanted to watch some other stuff first but I'll try to sneak it in again before New Year's Eve.

That's true. I'm assuming though, that in Santa Claus Conquers the Martians that those qualities add charm. I feel that isn't the case for PMvsDT.

The only movies I've probably watched 5 times or more since 2000 are Halloween 1, 2, 3 and Black Christmas, but none of these qualify as they're too old.

If someone asks me for a really good horror movie, the same two that were released since 2000 always spring to mind before any others: Wolf Creek and Haute Tension.

Horror movies I've seen at least 4-5 times:

Haute Tension
Black Swan
Jeepers Creepers


Horror movies I suspect I will be revisiting more than once:

The Innkeepers
The Woman in Black
Cold Prey 1
Cold Prey 2
The Dead
The Reef


I could list more but these would qualify as favourites.

If 5 times is the measure, then here are my films:

- Shaun of the Dead (already mentioned)
- 28 Days later
- American Psycho
- Devil's Rejects
- Dawn of the Dead 04
- Trick r' Treat
- Freddy vs. Jason

Pretty positive that Shaun is my favorite horror film since 2000.

Y'all know what I'm going to say...: almost none. But, of course, almost doesn't mean "none" none, it's some none.

For all my torch and pitchfork wielding, the decade actually got off to a pretty good start. Ginger Snaps, American Psycho, Final Destination, Wendigo, Session 9, Jeepers Creepers, Ichi the Killer, Suicide Circle, May, and 28 Days Later. I was even kind-of a fan of the first half of Rob Zombie's House of 1,000 Corpses (then-knowing that Zombie would have to actually learn how to write characters who aren't raving white trash idiots, this of course including law enforcement, if he wanted to become a genuine filmmaker) and thought about half of Roth's Cabin Fever worked surprising well. Even classic-horror remakes were getting a little better: Thirteen Ghosts (even if it was unbelievably dumb, it was more fun than it had any right to be). And, Open Water (which of course REALLY doesn't stand up over time), at least fixed the problems of The Bottom-Barrel Witch Project by writing legitimate characters and having things actually happen to them.

Then came: Wrong Turn, Texas Chainsaw Massacre '03, and Haute Tension, and the genre died shortly afterward. I mean, yes- Mulberry St. was decent and Insidious was okay, but they can't save the genre alone. The genre needs visionaries / auteurs. We had 2 genuinely talented hopefuls: Lucky McKee and Larry Fessenden. Fessenden made the best thing I've seen in the genre since McKee's Sick Girl- the "Skin & Bones" episode of Fear Itself (aka- the only really good episode of that otherwise abysmal series). But he's been quiet for nearly 6 years now. Then, McKee decides to stop making original material and hop on the trendy Jack Ketchum adaptation-train (The Girl Next Door should be proof enough of why this is a bad idea). So, they disappear from the radar and who do we get in their places? Aja (who, to put things into perspective, is currently a greater hack than Uwe Boll) and Ti West, whose major claim might as well be regarded as a Tarantino-esque wankfest to horror in the late 70's / early 80's with only the most superficial grasp on how to make the film FEEL like horror in the 70's and 80's. Much as I was forced to actually say something "nice" about the film when I saw it, that thing being: it doesn't completely suck, sometimes this movie makes me angrier than the likes of the My Bloody Valentine remake (which was definitely worse) and Splinter (which beats a woman just so the flick can claim to have street cred). Again, because fans gave it instant credit for having an idea. NOT for what it actually did with the idea- merely for having it. Meanwhile, the film feels like a funeral service because it only knows how to SHOOT a shot like it's the late 70's/early 80's. Forgetting how to make it creepy, interesting, or visually striking. It's actually one of the most tedius horror films I've seen in years. Much as, initially, it didn't drive me to fury like Trick 'R Treat or Saw, at least those films' awfulness forced me to think (mostly about what the fuck is wrong with every last person who claimed they were above average efforts). House of the Devil didn't have a clue when to quit and forced me to have to criticize it much more for how badly the cast and crew performed, rather than outrageous flaws from the script phase (since I'm betting it worked on paper). It actually could have been a good movie. Watching that turn to shit is, in a way, worse.

That said: Inkeepers is in my Netflix WI Queue. The guy's had years to learn and, all I can say is: I hope he did. I want to watch the movie but, House of the Devil was just so bad.

It also has the 2nd funniest moment I've yet seen in New Millennium horror (2nd to the "Britney" scene in Seed of Chucky, of course)... Well, it used to be on YouTube. I'm going to have to upload it to Vimeo later.

Argh, completely forgot Dagon, one of my favorite films. I have not seen it five times, but it's a great post-2000 film, for sure.
