After seeing the trailer I thought I was in for a pretty scary movie. Sadly, I wasn't. This film is corny, features awful CGI and some really bad acting. It felt severly medicore from begining to end with only about 4 cool scenes. Worst horror of 2010.

Saint Nick (2010)


Another promising trailer turned into an utter waste of time. Saint looked action packed and incredibly fun. It was at first but then we started seeing more of the characters than the wickedly cool villian. It doesn't help that these characters are also obnoxious and written by an idiot. Big dissapointment.

I've been a big fan of this series since I was a wee one and I've loved every installment (with the exception of the fourth one). The fifth didn't dissapoint, injecting some much needed humor into the series along with some truly squirm worthy kills. The plot twists were also jaw dropping (especially that AWESOME ending).

People who added this item 266 Average listal rating (178 ratings) 5.2 IMDB Rating 5.2


I'm a huge fan of Clive Barker's original but this one was pretty cool. I liked the deaths and the writing was the best in the whole series with some truly thought provoking lines. The acting was decent as well, making this a well rounded, nicely done little flick.
xxxTheRipperxxx's rating:


I'm a fan of the original but this one was leaps and bounds better. Because of the success of the first the crew had a bigger budget to work with, meaning some AWESOME special effects. Nifty little horror flick that most horror should gobble right up.

Prom Night (1980)


This was a decent little 80's slasher flick that holds the attention of it's viwer until the actual prom starts up. Things get way too dark and you can hardly see anyting. This takes the enjoyment out of most of the slasher bits but I can't say I didn't enjoy it. Nice ending as well, and a heck of alot better than the awful 2008 remake.

People who added this item 39 Average listal rating (23 ratings) 6.3 IMDB Rating 5.3


I'm a fan of the first and the third, but the other sequals aren't that great. This was probably the best of all the other sequals, but I really think it could've done alot more with the plotline. There were a few good scenes, but it was severly medicore at best.

The Prophecy (1995)


My favorite that I've seen so far this year. I'm a believer so this film's message is very special to me. I wasn't displeased with any of the acting either.
xxxTheRipperxxx's rating:


All the loveable characters from the second return, but this time with a deeper story. Not as good as the second, but still enjoyable.
xxxTheRipperxxx's rating:
People who added this item 44 Average listal rating (32 ratings) 3.9 IMDB Rating 3.8


I really don't get all the hate for this one. It's just a trashy, fun slasher/monster movie. I thought it had an original plot, good acting (especially from Sean Pertwee) and some wicked cool deaths. My only problem is the really bad CGI. REALLY bad. But I can easily overlook that.
xxxTheRipperxxx's rating:


I'm a fan of the first, but this was awful. The action scenes look like they were filmed by someone with Parkinson's and the actors actually HOLD the tentacles around their necks. Aside from a few loveable characters and clever bits of dialouge this is one of the worst.
xxxTheRipperxxx's rating:
People who added this item 92 Average listal rating (63 ratings) 5.2 IMDB Rating 5.1


Didn't really care for it at first, but it gets alot better.
xxxTheRipperxxx's rating:
People who added this item 125 Average listal rating (79 ratings) 4.2 IMDB Rating 4.3


Another of the worst I've seen this year. I'm a big fan of the first, but the "satire" in this was awful. Aside from a few good horror scenes this is utter trash. Maybe noobs will like it though.

People who added this item 341 Average listal rating (221 ratings) 5.8 IMDB Rating 5.8


It was nice to return to something amazing after suffering through the monstrosity above. This is in no way better than the first, but in my opinion equal to it in every way. My ownly irk is the cliched' ending.

Dracula 2000 (2000)


I've tried to finish twice before and for some reason extremely despised it. This morning however I gave it one more chance and found myself watching a fun, slighty intelligent little flick. It's not great, but it's enjoyable enough that I could watch it again.
xxxTheRipperxxx's rating:
People who added this item 142 Average listal rating (99 ratings) 4.3 IMDB Rating 4.2


I'm shocked that Clive Barker would actually allow his name to be attached in any way to this monstrosity. This isn't even a real Hellraiser until the ending and the forced torture porn elements really put a damper on the whole thing. The only reason I gave it a two was for at least three good kills. But you're better off skipping it.

People who added this item 700 Average listal rating (468 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.3


Wasn't as good as expected, but it got REALLY good in the second part of the film. It's a shame we don't have special effects like this anymore.
xxxTheRipperxxx's rating:
People who added this item 224 Average listal rating (106 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 6.2


This could have been alot better, but I enjoyed it for what it was. Cillian Murphy was excellent playing the dual roles, and really made the film worth watching. I won't spoil the subtle, but effective ending. But I've just got to add that this film is SCARY (at least for me) until everything gets explained.

Nine Dead (2011)


This was average at best, with a sucky ending. I can't really reccomend it. Medicore.
xxxTheRipperxxx's rating:


I am a fan of the first two and this one was tons of fun with some truly original death scenes. It actually managed to creep me out as well.
xxxTheRipperxxx's rating:


Yes, I think I'm becoming a CotC fan too. :3
xxxTheRipperxxx's rating:


This is pretty much what the first one SHOULD'VE been. More focus on the religion aspect. A bit too short for my tastes though.
xxxTheRipperxxx's rating:
People who added this item 4172 Average listal rating (2868 ratings) 6.9 IMDB Rating 7.6
Saw (2004)


Yes, I know I'm incredibly late to the party. But this was totally worth all those years of being too scared to watch. I could punch every single person who thinks this movie is just senseless torture porn. This film has an actual, inticrate story and tons of emotional depth. Easily the best of the thriller sub-genre of horror.
xxxTheRipperxxx's rating:
People who added this item 2668 Average listal rating (1707 ratings) 6.1 IMDB Rating 6.6
Saw II (2005)


Not as good as the first, but close to it. Just as smart, fun, disturbing and emotional. I think I'm a Saw fan.
xxxTheRipperxxx's rating:
People who added this item 2794 Average listal rating (1804 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.5


Yes sir. This year I'm catching up with all the classics I missed. And this didn't dissapoint. Creepy and lots of fun. It's easy too see why this is a classic.
xxxTheRipperxxx's rating:


This film is severely underated. It's scary, fun and yes, even a little gay. So what?
xxxTheRipperxxx's rating:


For me, one of the lower points of the franchise. The first half is fun, but the second half falters a little. The dream warriors concept is a good one, but I don't care for how cheesily it was handled.
xxxTheRipperxxx's rating:


Lots of brainless fun. Creative deaths as always.

Funny Games (2008)


The first half of this movie was absolutely terrific! These two boys are absolutely mind shattering. They really make you think hard about the horror genre and are loveable in an odd sort of way. However the second half after the (SPOILERS!) kid gets killed is awful and wrecks the whole film. Watch it for Naomi Watts if nothing else.

Hide and Seek (2005)


Another underated one. It's been a while since I got this tense at the ending of a horror film. Even though I had the ending spoiled for me, I was still enthraled from start to finish.

Priest (2011)


A fantastic film that I really don't get all the hate for. Perhaps the Christianity based aspects bugged some people, but as a believer it just makes the film better for me. Great action scenes as well.
xxxTheRipperxxx's rating:
People who added this item 253 Average listal rating (170 ratings) 4.6 IMDB Rating 4.7
Shrooms (2007)


A severly underated film with some spooky set pieces. It actually managed to scare me and was beautifully directed. Also spawned my adoration for Lydnsay Haun. :3
xxxTheRipperxxx's rating:


Another fun, underated installment in the series. Insane, but fun for Freddy fans.
xxxTheRipperxxx's rating:


A low point, but still great guilty pleasure fun.

Freddy's best sequel and a new favorite! One of the creepiest films ever made. Heather Lagenkamp aged perfectly. ;)
xxxTheRipperxxx's rating:
People who added this item 1339 Average listal rating (879 ratings) 5.3 IMDB Rating 5.7


I've watched this before, but opinion has changed so vastly that I had to include it. You have to watch the other films to appreciate this one. The first half is great, but once Freddy and Jason actually start fighting it gets cheesy. These are horror characters, not kung fu fighters. The worst film in the franchise, but I still like it.

Saw III (2006)


I WAS a Saw fan until I reached this installment. Jigsaw's inticrate plan suddenly seems self centered and selfish. The sequences with the man who lost his son were absolutely fantastic, but all in all this was a major dissapointment. I'd perfer to believe Jigsaw died in the car at the end of Saw II, but I may watch the others anyway.

Shark Night (2011)


Not as horrible as many make it out to be, but my major irk is the horrid CGI. I want puppets or live sharks! With a budget this big there's no excuse for lame effects. Nifty plot twist though.

Undead (2003)
This crap doesn't even deserve a screenshot.

An amazing sequel that proves the term "low budget" doesn't mean bad quailty. Actually reminded me a bit of Halloween.

Love Object (2004)


What an awful, horrible movie! Makes absolutely no sense and Kennith is quite an ulikeable, vapid character.

A beautifully filmed movie with a suprisingly deep plot. I was very pleasently suprised. I wish more people would watch this.

A suprisingly awesome movie. Fantastic kills and a brilliant sense of humor. Now my favorite horror comedy.

I love a good revenge movie and this movie certainly delivered on those grounds with some truly shocking scenes. Young Hannibal is an incredibly loveable character, but some parts of the film move too quickly and feel stitched together.

Trackman (2007)


Quite a dissapointing slasher with bland, tasteless kills. The directing is brilliant and the climax good, but the story and everything else is absolutely mind numbing.
xxxTheRipperxxx's rating:
People who added this item 393 Average listal rating (271 ratings) 5.5 IMDB Rating 5.5


A fantastic installment in this medicore franchise that took a slasher style route, but still contained everything that makes the series great.
xxxTheRipperxxx's rating:
People who added this item 203 Average listal rating (137 ratings) 5.3 IMDB Rating 5.5


Besides the second, this is the only other film I'll watch in this franchise. A great film with some truly scary scenes and great acting. I can't tell you how genious the ending is.
