  • In thirty Years, What films from the Current Era (2000-Now) will be called Classics?

    There's a thread similar to this that was started like five years ago. A lot has changed and it would be good to see what people think now.

    The Descent
    28 Days Later
    Saw
    The Ring
    Hostel
    The Devil's Rejects
    Inside
    Martyrs
    Eden Lake
    Shaun of the Dead
    The Orphanage
    Let the Right One In
    A Tale of Two Sisters
    Oldboy
    The House of the Devil
    High Tension


    Put "2 Fast 2 Furious" in B&W and Se7en thinks he's watching a Bergman film.
    I find the Metal Gear Solid series to be mediocre at best.

      Martyrs
      I Saw The Devil
      Let The Right One In.

      I don't see any of the torture porn type flicks being labelled classics.

        Father's Day, and other torrid Troma affairs such as Poltrygeist and the upcoming Nuke 'em High.

          I think 20 years from now some kids will hear of and check out the following films from the last decade. (these lists are just a rough idea)

          Most well known;

          Saw
          28 days later
          The Descent
          The Hills have eyes
          Dawn of the Dead
          Final Destination
          REC
          Let the right one in
          Shaun of the Dead
          The Ring

          Horror fans will always love;

          Haute Tension
          Inside
          Martyrs
          The Orphange
          Trick 'r Treat
          Dark Water
          Them
          Dog Soldiers

          Cult films
          The Devils Rejects
          Human Centipede

          I'm sure films like Grindhouse, Wrong Turn and others have a place as well.

            These would be what I would consider classics in 20-30 years

            Saw
            May
            House Of 1,000 Corpses
            Devils Rejects
            Let The Right One In

            I doubt it will be remembered very well but Id personally like to see Sweeney Todd become a classic as I think its the best Depp/Burton collaboration there is.

              Unfortunately, I suspect that 30 years from now what will be considered classics will actually be reboots of most of the films we list here today.

              But assuming I'm wrong . . .


              Dawn of the Dead (2004)
              The Descent
              28 Days Later
              Saw
              The Ring
              Let the Right One In
              The House of the Devil


              I agree with Rusted on the torture porn type films with the exception of Saw. For some reason I see that one hanging on as a favourite of tomorrow's horror fans.

              There will always be those fans who dig anything and will watch everything named in the genre so films like Hostle, Inside, Martyrs, etc. will always have their niche.

                Pan's Labyrinth
                The Others
                The Mist
                Drag Me To Hell
                Session 9
                Jeepers Creepers

                  What about the Final Destination franchise?
                  Maybe not one I would place near the top, but I can see it showing up as one of those This-is-the-movie-that-got-me-interested-in-horror type films. We all have one or two of those films that may not rank high on thers' lists, but we hold in high esteem nonetheless.

                    Definitely! They will probably make more too.

                      Don't forget the Scream franchise.

                        Well the scream sequels lol but yeah they deserve on the list as well!

                        Sadly paranormal activity is the 2000's blair witch project so it will be remembered as well.

                        Frailty is another good one but I don't know if it will be high up there in 20 years.

                          Session 9
                          Jeepers Creepers
                          Some good additions there especially Session 9. I hope films like Session 9 and Martha Marcy May Marlene get seen by future generations as they are amazing films that have lacked attention.

                          I guess one answer to this thread will be to wait and see how the B-D top 50 horror films turns out.

                            I definitely feel like the foreign films have been the best at putting out horror in recent years. IMO, not much done in North America can compare to these. Disappointed at the lack of Oldboy up there though.

                            The first Saw is actually an incredibly smart movie. I can see how the ending is hit or miss with some people, but for the most part it's a very well rounded film.


                            Put "2 Fast 2 Furious" in B&W and Se7en thinks he's watching a Bergman film.
