    Even after using the power of google I have been unable to find any decent New Year's Eve themed horror movies. Can anyone list any good ones? thanks

    Steel Trap (2007)
    Cheesy but tons of fun.

    I swear I was just going to say that movie. Problem is I completly forgot the title. Saw it about a year ago. Good movie.

    The Signal - (2007)

    Daywatch - Might be a stretch though.

    Not a movie, but an episode of Fear Itself takes place on New Year's Day, aptly titled "New Year's Day".

    Although no specific date is mentioned I always think of The Shining as a New Years set movie, mainly because of the photo at the end I guess.

    It sure is slim pickens. I can't belive there is a "New Year's Dead" or "New Year's Blood". Bloody New Year is OOP and New Year's Evil isn't even on DVD.

    New Year's Evil is no good. Save your money.

    Just saw NEW YEAR'S EVIL on 35mm tonight. Such cheesy delights. I guess that comes with the territory with Golan & Globus. I hope some day [strike]Code Red[/strike] Scorpion or Anchor Bay or someone like that release this.

    I think TERROR TRAIN throws everyone off because it came at a time where any slasher centered around a holiday was named after a holiday. Since this isn't...who knew?

    It's true though, not a lot of options for the New Year's fan, but considering all the Christmas horror out there, you should be burned out by that point anyway!

    That and the fact that everyone is dressed up, almost making it feel like it takes place on Halloween.

    Heh...Fox fucked that up on the back of the DVD:

    [​IMG]

    Notice how the banner says "HAPPY HALLOWEEN"?

    [​IMG]

    The original artwork, notice how it says "HAPPY ANNIVERSARY"...which...still doesn't exactly have anything to do with the movie. The film takes place on New Year's Eve...whatever. The people at Fox seem to think the film takes place on Halloween.
