Default 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

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.

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.
