Not really a horror film as it really isn't scary or suspenseful for the most part. However, it's a vampire movie, so, yeah, it definitely qualifies. What it really is, is a great coming of age and childhood friendship story. If you're looking for a horror film with real emotional depth, this is it.

The makers of Blair Witch 2 all but abandoned the POV cinema-verite approach that worked so well for the first one, while later in the decade Rec, Quarantine, and Paranormal Activity all went on to show that there was still gold left to be mined in that vein.

That being said, I totally dug this flick. Don't ask me to explain it. The characters are poorly drawn stereotypes and the plot is, well, not very plot-ish. So, you know, not necessarily a recommendation, but I also wouldn't be surprised if this is a guilty pleasure for you.



^ The cast of Blair Witch 2 expresses their amazement at their inclusion on this list, despite the fact that the sequel is devoid of all the ingenuity of the first one.

Nice list. Good to see "Bug" and "Shadow of the Vampire" get some love here. (psst, it's actually Willem Dafoe that plays the Nosferatu) If you're looking for a #50, the French extreme horror pic "Inside" may be worth your consideration.
Posted: 7 years, 7 months ago at Dec 4 23:40
@Xanadon't

Thanks for the correction on Shadow of the Vampire. It's been a while... ha...

I've heard good things about Inside and it is one I'm meaning to check out. Thanks for the heads up.

Nice to see The Strangers top this list...it's the first horror movie since the 80s to actually scare me.

If you haven't seen them I recommend the following: Versus, May, Three Extremes, The Host, Hatchet, Funny Games, and Black Sheep.
Posted: 7 years, 7 months ago at Dec 9 16:24
@ the giraffe

May and Hatchet are both totally on my to see list. The Host looked a little cheesy with the monster (I'm not a huge creature-feature guy), but I keep hearing good things about it so I should probably check it out too.

I just recently watched the original, German-version Funny Games and thought it was fantastic. I actually didn't realize until just yesterday that there was a remake. I was pumped to find it had Naomi Watts in it too and it was by the same director as the original. I'm definitely going to check it out.

And, yeah, The Strangers definitely scared me too! One of the only one on this list to really do that, along with Paranormal Activity.

There are a few on this list that I absolutely hate! (Pulse, Fear Dot Com, The Wicker Man, When A Stranger Calls, Dark Water)..
But the majority of them I love. I think Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 was not as bad as it was put out to be. I really enjoyed it..
Also, I would recommend that you see Wrong Turn 2: Dead End if you enjoyed the first. It is probably the goriest movie that I have seen, well, besides Dead Alive :P
