Insidious, Sinister, Cabin in the Woods, Evil Dead, Let Me In, Piranha 3D, Antichrist, Drag Me to Hell, and I liked The Collector, The Collection, The Divide, and Silent Hill: Revelation.

From the past 5 years? I would definitely consider Cabin in the Woods, but it's also partly comedy. My favorite PURE horror film of the last 5 years would have to be either Evil Dead (as the best horror REMAKE in recent memory) or Insidious (as the first ghost movie in recent memory to send chills up my spine).

Cabin in the Woods, hands down. Although Drag Me to Hell was phenomenal.

I haven't seen every horror film from the last 5 years, but Evil Dead and Cabin in the Woods come to mind first.

I have Absentia, Lovely Molly and Martyrs on my "To Watch" list.

Oh man. David, the next film you watch truly needs to be Martyrs. It's one of the most brilliant concepts I have ever seen.

Martyrs seems to be another audience over critic favorite.

That's because many critics classified it as "torture porn." When a horror film is gory and they don't understand the concept, they take the name calling route and dub it "torture porn." It actually makes me sick.

If the movie doesn't revolve around torture, or have extreme scenes of torture, it isn't torture porn. It seems it's the hip thing to call bloody movies nowadays.

I can't really comment on that much further as it significantly pertains to the film's plot. It's much more than your typical torture flick.

Does Pandorum count as a horror movie? That movie exceeded my expectations.

Apr 12 - 03:05 PM

That was a surprisingly decent movie. And yes, I'd classify that as horror.

Apr 12 - 06:41 PM

Face Nyland

I would say that it falls into the horror genre just as much as Event Horizon or Prometheus. Although, I really didn't care for Pandorum.

I'm planning on watching Event Horizon for the first time when it arrives via Netflix on Monday. Is it worth watching?

I think it is, yes. It's a fun ride.

Quarantine, The Strangers

I liked The Strangers, but it wasn't anything great. Watch [REC.] and you'll forget allll about shitty Quarantine.

Apr 12 - 01:16 PM

Frank Vignola

I liked Rec. I liked Quarantine better lol. I know I'm weird. Sometimes I like the overdone, overproduced versions better - like Texas Chainsaw 2003.

Apr 12 - 03:03 PM

Off the top of my head - Evil Dead, Cabin, Sinister, Orphan, Let Me In, The Collector

I forgot let me in. One of the first times a horror film made me cry.

Orphan? Come on, man...

Apr 13 - 10:22 AM

Mr khan

to be honest i did not hate orphan. It was not a great horror movie but it had me entertained while i was watching it. its a ok one time watch.

Apr 13 - 10:30 AM

Yeah, I know it's not in good taste, but I also found Orphan to be enjoyable.

Apr 13 - 07:41 PM

Frank Vignola

Frank Vignola

Yeah I loved Orphan. Sometimes good acting makes a just okay movie really good. The little girl and Vera Farmiga really sold this flick to me. I loved it.

Maybe I'm close minded, but I just couldn't get past the nonsensical twist ending lol.

Apr 14 - 07:14 AM

House of the Devil, The Loved Ones, Insidious, Innkeepers, and Thirst.

Apr 12 - 11:50 AM

Mr k.

Mr khan

Is Thirst dubbed or if i watch it i have to watch it with subs?

Apr 12 - 12:34 PM

Bazooka Jew

Bazooka Jew

For the exception of Cowboy Bebop, FUCK DUBS. Watch the film in it's original language. You'll have to read subtitles.

Apr 12 - 01:15 PM

Mr k.

Mr khan

Well i will look into it. i watched Seven samurai,throne of blood and Pan's Labyrinth with subs and they were more than wroth it.

Apr 12 - 01:57 PM

Innkeepers was surprisingly good.

You can't go wrong with James Wan. I love his style as cheesy as it is.

I liked it too. I don't understand why some people didn't like the ending. What did they expect?

Apr 13 - 10:23 AM

Mr k.

Mr khan

lol i know. The only times i ever really expect to get a great ending is when i watch a Christopher Nolan film.

That's a tough one... Probably this, Cabin, The Innkeepers, or something out of Japan
