  • Best horror of the 2000's

    I noticed in the thread 'Best Horror Movie of the past 20 Years' that there is almost too large of a gap. Since the early 2000's, in the wake of a glut of scream clones and in the face of 9/11, horror has undergone considerable changes. No longer the underground genre of the 90's, horror's mainstream success has been largely due to a healthy foreign market, American adaptations, and a near infinite glut of remakes.

    In the face of much flaming, I consider Hostel to be arguably one of the most defining horror films of this decade. Not my favorite to be sure, but possibly one of the most fun and original American releases to hit the mainstream market. Just so we can get a list established, here's what I feel are the highest quality horror films of the 2000's.

    The Descent
    Dawn of the Dead Remake
    Hostel 1&2
    Frontiers
    High Tension
    Battle Royale
    Chan-Wook Park's Revenge Trilogy
    Final Destination 1&2
    Wrong Turn
    The Ring
    Cloverfield
    [REC]
    Grindhouse
    Slither
    Wolf Creek
    Dog Soldiers
    The Hills Have Eyes Remake
    The Mist
    28 Days Later
    28 Weeks Later
    Bubba Ho-Tep
    Ginger Snaps
    Let The Right One In
    Fido
    A Tale of Two Sisters
    Martyrs
    The Host
    Pan's Labyrinth
    3-Extremes
    American Psycho
    Shaun of the Dead
    FEAST
    F:13th Remake
    Session 9
    Irreversible

        What? I enjoyed the extremely heavy atmosphere there. Besides that, only The Descent gave me the same atmosphere in 2000's, so... lol

                Honestly, there is no way I can tell you what the best horror of the 00's is because it's all down to personal opinion, but there is no way Saw, any of the Saw movies could be considered the best of anything.

                      Good list Stoney

                      I'll add SLITHER to the mix.

                        I liked Slither quite a bit, too. Was hilarious.
                        Dog Soldiers is another I enjoyed a great deal.
                        There's a few I've missed out but my top ten is what it is.
