Purely entertaining

None of these are essential, but they're all solidly entertaining...especially if you're into horror.

Best in Horror 2000-2009 by Xanadon't


The 00s produced the first movie to scare me since I was younger, and that's the one that took top honors. Granted Funny Games and Ils/Them already mined the same story, but I saw The Strangers first. :P Lots of foreign horror this decade, as American horror mostly came in the form of crappy/overrated remakes. The originals are always better.

Fantastic List!
[REC] and The Descent are must sees!
Also, watch the first ever Straight-to-video in Japan Ju-on: The Curse film.
It's far scarier then the "okay" Japanese remake or the Sarah Michelle Geller flopflick.

Great list! Not the biggest fan of the 00's when it comes to horror. Still, you picked some really good ones. Nice to see some love for House of 1000 Corpses as well! :D
Posted: 6 years, 11 months ago at Oct 19 16:53
I think you are one of the few people who liked "Black Sheep". I thought it was riotous fun.
Posted: 6 years, 11 months ago at Oct 20 11:28
Oh my. I've really been out to lunch lately if I'm only now sitting down with this list! New horror lists are supposed to be my favorite! Clearly I need to get my head right and re-prioritize some things in my life...

Anyway, great stuff here as always. And thanks for the link!
We've got a couple of major differences of opinion here (Funny Games, 13 Ghosts, Hard Candy which I only thought was Meh) but far more shared horror love! Nice to see Pandorum here, even if I didn't LOVE it. I still enjoyed it quite a bit and think it deserves more play. Shadow of the Vampire and May are nice touches too! And of course I LOVE 'Them' House of the Devil, Thirst and lots others.

Still need to see Versus and Bubba. Lots of great stuff awaiting you in your unseen horrors section. Just got done rewatching The Others. Dude, it really is a pretty fantastic film for lots of reasons. I hope you enjoy it.

I'm a bit surprised you haven't seen Dog Soldiers or The Descent yet (same director). I really dug both of them. High Tension is a wicked one that I'm of two minds about.

And of course just go ahead and make The Human Centipede your last stop. Or better yet skip it all together. (Ha, but you already know my feelings on that one)

Oh, and obviously you've already got a pretty full plate, but Eden Lake is a nasty little number that's really good that you may want to give a look into.
Posted: 6 years, 11 months ago at Oct 20 13:31
The 2000's really played a good host to horror. After the disastrous movies of the 90's, they redeemed it in 2000's. I've seen many movies you've listed. From the one's you still haven't seen, I suggest you watch Vacancy, The Midnight Meat Train & Bug. Excellent performances by the lead and supporting cast in these movies. Vacancy is probably one of the best horror films I've seen from this decade.

And, like always, you always pick out all the horror titles and It's funny I just finished watching Bubba Ho-Tep today! Bruce Campbell's best performance yet!

Also, try to add Silent Hill & Oldboy!
Posted: 6 years, 11 months ago at Oct 20 19:26
@Xanadon't - Thanks! Eden Lake has been added.

@Happy Vader - Oldboy is one of my all-time favorite movies, but I wouldn't consider it horror...more of a revenge thriller. Which I suppose is close enough, but I just don't feel comfortable calling it a horror film for some reason. Besides, if I add it to this list The Strangers loses its place. :P

Silent Hill has been added, even though I had no interest in it from the trailers & never played the game.
Posted: 6 years, 11 months ago at Oct 20 19:35
Thank you and even I haven't played any Silent Hill games considering game-to-film movies, Silent Hill is one of the best!

It delivers shocks, scares and thrills at the right moment! Give it a try, yea?
Posted: 6 years, 3 months ago at Jun 25 0:23
Nice list, I have to watch some of these, I will...
You also chose one of my all time favorites: "The Host"; I'd hardly call that horror...but I guess...it's still a monster movie after all...
Of course I also disagree with some of these; one for all: "Funny Games US".
I notice you saw "Ils", have you seen much of the movies from the latest french horror trend? If u didn't, I suggest you to check "A L'interieur"!
