Wide Release

2007 saw a lot of horror movies come and go, but which ones were actually worth slapping down your $11.50 ($16.25 with Jujubes)?

The Orphanage (2007)


While not as terrifying as you might've heard, this is a great old-fashioned ghost story with tons of atmosphere and emotion. And subtitles. So please learn how to read.
People who added this item 1410 Average listal rating (954 ratings) 6.3 IMDB Rating 6.6


Cinematic vampirism gets a fresh coat of paint...and blood...and a little bit of brain matter, too, in one of the most successful comic book translations in recent years.
NightShadowX's rating:

1408 (2007)


You can't take your eyes off of John Cusack in this mind-bending haunted house -- er, room -- tale that makes the hotel in Vacancy seem like a five-star resort.
People who added this item 898 Average listal rating (587 ratings) 6.8 IMDB Rating 7.3
Mr. Brooks (2007)


This deliciously pulpy (and a wee bit gory) thriller delivers the most campy fun available at the theater all year. Plus, it accomplishes what so many of us have dreamed of doing: bludgeoning Dane Cook to death with a shovel.
People who added this item 1978 Average listal rating (1278 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 7


A rare sequel that's comparable in quality to the first, it delivers the scares, the gore and the apocalyptic nihilism you demand from a zombie movie. The opening scene is one of the most harrowing, heart-pounding spectacles of the past few years.
People who added this item 1991 Average listal rating (1332 ratings) 6.1 IMDB Rating 6.3


It'll never be confused with high art, but it's miles ahead of the dreck that was Resident Evil: Apocalypse. It's amazing what a competent director (Russell Mulcahy of Highlander fame) and hot pants with leather stockings will do for you.
People who added this item 858 Average listal rating (573 ratings) 5.4 IMDB Rating 5.5


It's interesting to see things from the torturer's point of view; sort of like looking through the eyes of an MTV programmer.
People who added this item 512 Average listal rating (335 ratings) 5.6 IMDB Rating 5.6
The Reaping (2007)


I'll take a stand for this one. It didn't get a lot of respect critically or commercially, but I applaud it for being a big-budget horror movie that's neither a remake nor a sequel. Plus, with cinematic direction and a plot that pays off at the end (though it might not make total sense), it actually doesn't stink.
People who added this item 875 Average listal rating (592 ratings) 5.8 IMDB Rating 6.2
Vacancy (2007)


Surprisingly lacking in edge for a movie about candid camera snuff filmmaking (especially given director Nimrod Antal's previous stylish effort, Kontroll), Vacancy starts out great but loses steam thanks to the most inept criminals this side of Enron. Still, not bad overall, although frankly I'm adding it just to get the list to 10.
People who added this item 390 Average listal rating (240 ratings) 6 IMDB Rating 6.1
Bug (2007)


Was I the only one rolling on the floor with laughter during the final five minutes of this film? I doubt that's what director William Friedkin had in mind, but I thank him for it.

Limited-Release/Direct-to-Video

2007 saw a lot of horror movies hit DVD, but which ones were actually worth trudging to the video store?
People who added this item 139 Average listal rating (50 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 7
Antibodies (2005)


A sort of German Silence of the Lambs, Antibodies follows a small-town cop as he travels to the big city to interview an incarcerated serial killer in hopes that he'll confess to a murder in his town. What he discovers, though, might hit him too close to home. Beautifully acted and directed with soul-stirring emotional depth and a twisted streak to keep you pervs happy, Antibodies is one of the best films of 2007.
People who added this item 505 Average listal rating (321 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 6.7
Fido (2007)


A satiric comedy with a zombie touch, Fido blends horror and humor in a manner similar to Shaun of the Dead, and does it almost as well.
People who added this item 308 Average listal rating (203 ratings) 6 IMDB Rating 5.7
Hatchet (2010)


Clever, laugh-out-loud dialogue and splatter-ific gore make this a successful, campy return to traditional slasher values. But what's with that ending?
People who added this item 78 Average listal rating (54 ratings) 6.3 IMDB Rating 5.8
Murder Party (2007)


A quirky indie film with a mean streak, Murder Party finds a likeable loser being suckered into a killer ambush at the hands of a bunch of bumbling art snobs. Funny, gory, cool.


This sly "mockumentary" about a fictional slasher villain (as opposed to a real slasher villain?) ingeniously blurs the line between film and reality while poking fun of the genre's clichรฉs. It would rate higher if it didn't lose the documentary format and ironically degrade into a typical slasher by the end.
People who added this item 92 Average listal rating (64 ratings) 5.3 IMDB Rating 5.1


The best zombie action of the year can be found 30,000 feet in the air. FOTLD surges at a breakneck pace, utilizing the enclosed airplane setting to perfection while maintaining a lighthearted tone. This is the silly, bloody good time that Snakes on a Plane should've been.
People who added this item 76 Average listal rating (41 ratings) 5.5 IMDB Rating 5.6
Isolation (2006)


If you think that Irish horror has to include Warwick Davis running around in a Leprechaun suit, try Isolation on for size. Genetic experimentation on a dairy farm leads to the creation of a parasitic creature in this taut thriller that will teach you more than you ever wanted to know about birthing a calf.
People who added this item 1138 Average listal rating (748 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 7
The Host (2006)


It's a bit overrated, but this South Korean flick delivers genuine thrills and one of the best movie monsters in recent memory.
People who added this item 351 Average listal rating (241 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 6.5
Severance (2006)


Live out your fantasies of dismembering your coworkers in this wry British mix of The Office and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
People who added this item 92 Average listal rating (47 ratings) 5.3 IMDB Rating 5
The Tripper (2006)


Those of us who grew up in the '80s know that even without an axe, Ronald Reagan is scary, so seeing him toting around a big ol' hippy-killer in a forest full of tree huggers is the stuff of nightmares.
People who added this item 572 Average listal rating (361 ratings) 5.4 IMDB Rating 5.8


Who can resist zombie sheep? This New Zealand entry might've benefited from taking a page from fellow Kiwi Peter Jackson's splatter-fest Dead Alive, but even though it holds back a bit, Black Sheep still shines when it counts.


Although it couldn't afford the fancy werewolf makeup and effects of Skinwalkers and Blood and Chocolate, Big Bad Wolf turns out to be the best lycanthrope film of the year.
People who added this item 25 Average listal rating (9 ratings) 5.6 IMDB Rating 5.3
Sl8n8 (2006)


This supernatural slasher from the Netherlands is pretty standard but manages to achieve something that so many similar films have failed at recently: competency. Bravo!
People who added this item 21 Average listal rating (14 ratings) 5.8 IMDB Rating 5.4


In this horror/comedy, a man builds a car with an alternative fuel source: human blood! And the human-er, the better. Although the humor doesn't always work, if all low-budget horror films were this imaginative and well-written, a lot fewer broken DVDs would be returned to Blockbuster.
People who added this item 14 Average listal rating (10 ratings) 5.5 IMDB Rating 5.4
Given its low, LOW budget, this story of bounty hunters from Hell (literally) features amazing action set pieces.
