Sauna (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.3/10 X  
As a 25-year war between Russia and Sweden concludes, two brothers who are part of an effort to outline new border accords become undone by their actions, and their mistreatment of a young woman during their journey. (83 mins.)
Director: AJ Annila
“ Moody, atmospheric, and even a bit hard to follow. I think that I understood the film and what it was meant to be. Not for everybody though, very deep horror. ” - zen-illa
Terror Train (1980)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.9/10 X  
A masked killer targets six college kids responsible for a prank gone wrong three years earlier and who are currently throwing a large New Year's Eve costume party aboard a moving train. (97 mins.)
“ One of the top slashers from the 80s, and of course the sexyness that was Jamie Lee Curtis during the early part of that decade. We pretty much know from the beginning who the killer will be, but the way the story gets there is pretty interesting, in my opinion. ” - zen-illa
The Fog (1980)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X  
Legend says that Antonio Bay was built in 1880 with blood money obtained from shipwrecked lepers, which no one believes. On the eve of the town's centennial, many plan to attend the celebrations, including the murdered lepers. (89 mins.)
Director: John Carpenter
“ Classic from the year 1980- John Carpenter gives us another creepy flick. Definitely one of his best that isn't mentioned as much as it should be. ” - zen-illa
Curtains (1983)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.8/10 X  
Six young actresses auditioning for a movie role at a remote mansion are targeted by a mysterious masked murderer. (89 mins.)
“ The mask of the killer is one of the creepiest ever. Low budget, but effective slasher flick. All about dreams, and the people that become obsessed with them. The theme is reminiscent of Darren Aronofsky's 'Black Swan', I find, although the movies are not similar nor are they on the same level. Check it out if you can find it- took me a lot of searching. ” - zen-illa
The Entity (1982)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.6/10 X  
Supposedly based partially on a true story, a woman is tormented and sexually molested by an invisible demon. (125 mins.)
Director: Sidney J. Furie
“ The greatest parapsychological horror there is, about a woman who is repeatedly raped and sexually assaulted by an invisible demon. Barbara Hershey (sha-wing, in the words of Wayne & Garth!) acts out an amazing performance. I'm glad Martin Scorsese agrees that this is one of the more frightening movies of all time. Some great special effects for the 80s. ” - zen-illa
My Bloody Valentine (1981)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.2/10 X  
A decades-old folk tale surrounding a deranged murderer killing those who celebrate Valentine's Day turns out to be true to legend when a group defies the killer's order and people start turning up dead. (90 mins.)
Director: George Mihalka
“ Forget the remakes, like most, and watch the original. A few weak spots but no film is perfect- this one gives me the creeps. The scenes in the mine are by far some of the creepiest in any slasher to date. ” - zen-illa
The Prowler (1981)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.2/10 X  
An unknown killer, clad in World War II U.S. Army fatigues, stalks a small New Jersey town bent on reliving a 35 year-old double murder by focusing on a group of college kids holding an annual Spring Dance. (89 mins.)
Director: Joseph Zito
“ Typical slasher that rises above most of them. Some excellent deaths, and of course lots of great gore courtesy of the master, Tom Savini. The killer is another creepy one, this time the recipient of a Dear John letter that drove him over the edge. ” - zen-illa
Don't Go in the House (1979)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.6/10 X  
A disturbed young man who was burned as a child by his sadistic mother stalks women with a flamethrower. (82 mins.)
Director: Joseph Ellison
“ Of course from the 80s! This might be a bit cheesy at points, but I think there's a lot more to this slasher flick than meets the eye. Our killer uses a real unique style when killing off his victims; more than that, this is a flick that ushers out the 70s and brings the 80s. ” - zen-illa
Pieces (1982)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.2/10 X  
Young co-eds are being dismembered by a mysterious murderer on a college campus. The killer is attempting to put together a human jigsaw puzzle made from body parts. (85 mins.)
Director: J.Piquer Simon
“ Hidden gem of a movie. Like many, this has it's cheesy fingers... but it has some really great deaths, some cool gore, classic slasher film dialogue ("Bastard! Bastard!! BASTAAAAARD!!!!"), a loony college Dean, and an inexplicable last minute jump scene. I don't know if they intentionally wanted it to be funny but it is- and it works! ” - zen-illa
Prince of Darkness (1987)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.7/10 X  
A research team finds a mysterious cylinder in a deserted church. If opened, it could mean the end of the world. (102 mins.)
Director: John Carpenter
“ I don't know why this movie isn't held up on high more than it is, because this is another John Carpenter film that kicks ass (I won't put The Thing on this list because everybody KNOWS that film is a scorcher!). Donald Pleasance is always incredible, and the story itself is just absolutely excellent: the death of a priest belonging to a secret sect uncovers hidden writings, and a vat full of a green liquid that contains Satan himself, kept secret by the Church for thousands and thousands of years. Gnarly. Add in Alice Cooper and some pretty gnarly effects, you've got another great addition to the Carpenter library. ” - zen-illa
Clownhouse (1989)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.8/10 X  
Just before Halloween, three young brothers alone in a big house are menaced by three escaped mental patients who have murdered some traveling circus clowns and taken their identities. (81 mins.)
Director: Victor Salva
“ Wicked little film starring a babyface Sam Rockwell about a trio of brothers who visit a carnival one night and see a bunch of clowns perform, which scares the shit out of the youngest one. They go home for the night, but little does anybody know three escaped mental patients kill the clowns and take their clothes. The three of them then decide to do a little home invasion on the young boys' house while they're home alone for the night. Pretty creepy and inventive horror movie; the part where the patients take over the clowns is pretty spooky. ” - zen-illa
And Soon the Darkness (1970)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.7/10 X  
Two young English women go on a cycling tour of the French countryside. When one of them goes missing, the other begins to search for her. But who can she trust? (99 mins.)
Director: Robert Fuest
“ Not slasher horror, but some intense psychological terror in this one. I prefer this to the remake mainly because of the typical human trafficking plotline the latter takes on which is so overused nowadays in horror. Two girls biking in France have a fight and split up, then one goes missing prompting the other to search for her. She meets a mysterious man, who is claiming to be looking for someone himself but he seems shady. She gets the police involved. It's pretty slow for the first 1/4, but then it really takes off and keeps you guessing until the end. Watching it now, you'll probably guess the ending.. but before all these backwoods movies with the same formula came out, you'd probably never guess it. ” - zen-illa
Tombs of the Blind Dead (1972)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.2/10 X  
In the 13th century there existed a legion of evil knights known as the Templars, who quested for eternal... (101 mins.)
“ Reanimated Templar Knights looking for revenge on innocent tourists- fucking gnarly! ” - zen-illa
Alice Sweet Alice (1976)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.5/10 X  
After a young girl is brutally murdered during her first communion, her strange and withdrawn older sister becomes the main suspect. (98 mins.)
Director: Alfred Sole

Suspiria (1977)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.5/10 X  
A newcomer to a fancy ballet academy gradually comes to realize that the school is a front for something far more sinister and supernatural amidst a series of grisly murders. (98 mins.)
Director: Dario Argento
“ Any horror fan knows of Dario Argento and many other giallo filmmakers, but for those of you who aren't hardcore fans of the genre I present to you one of the most kick ass films about witches EVER. Argento is one of the greatest. ” - zen-illa
Begotten (1990)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.0/10 X  
This gory and entirely visual film tells the surreal tale of the death and rebirth of gods. (72 mins.)
“ A silent film that is sort of grotesque but still very intriguing. Using a lot of mythology, we see the tale of a god unfolding in front of our eyes. Intense and weird... I think that John Carpenter used this as inspiration for his Masters of Horror episode 'Cigarette Burns'. ” - zen-illa
Nadja (1994)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.0/10 X  
This ultra-hip, post-modern vampire tale is set in contemporary New York City. Members of a dysfunctional... (93 mins.)
“ One of the coolest, innovative and most unique films out there about vampires. It's produced by David Lynch- 'nuff said. ” - zen-illa
The Last Broadcast (1998)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.5/10 X  
A film crew ventures into the forest in search of the mythical 'Jersey Devil'. (86 mins.)
“ Awesome horror mockumentary that falls flat on its god damn face during the last 15 minutes when the "revelation" occurs. Other than that, this would be one of the most amazing faux documentaries in the horror genre. All based around the legend of the Jersey Devil. ” - zen-illa
Antropophagus (1980)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.4/10 X  
A group of tourists become stranded on an uninhabited island where they are stalked by an insane, violent, and grotesque killer that slaughtered the town's former residents. (90 mins.)
Director: Joe D'Amato
“ Gorey tale that could almost be a myth of it's own: a bunch of visitors to a Greek island encounter a blood thirsty cannibal man out for a snack. Typical splatter type horror, but I find the story of the cannibalistic man very intriguing; as I said before, this could almost be it's own myth it's that gnarly. ” - zen-illa
Ravenous (1999)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.0/10 X  
In a remote military outpost in the 19th Century, Captain John Boyd and his regiment embark on a rescue mission which takes a dark turn when they are ambushed by a sadistic cannibal. (101 mins.)
Director: Antonia Bird
“ Innovative film about cannibals. One of my favourite movies of ALL TIME! Stars Guy Pearce, Robert Carlyle, Jeffrey Jones, David Arquette and directed by the amazingly talented Antonia Bird. Incredibly weird soundtrack that truly fits the atmosphere of the movie. ” - zen-illa
Session 9 (2001)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.5/10 X  
Tensions rise within an asbestos cleaning crew as they work in an abandoned mental hospital with a horrific past that seems to be coming back. (100 mins.)
Director: Brad Anderson
“ I love this film, and it absolutely creeps the hell out of me. Only bad point, which I still enjoy because I love David Caruso, is when he says: "Hey- fuck YOU!". Unintentionally hilarious. Other than that, solid film that includes a few really wonderful actors. I can watch Peter Mullan in anything, and Brendan Sexton is a great young actor. ” - zen-illa
Trouble Every Day (2001)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.0/10 X  
Shane and June Brown are an American couple honeymooning in Paris in an effort to nurture their new life together... (101 mins.)
Director: Claire Denis
“ Claire Denis proves that there are still concepts out there for new fresh horror films. Amazing. Vincent Gallo for once puts his creepiness to the correct use, and Beatrice Dalle is perfect (and beautiful, even covered in blood). One of the most interesting concepts for a horror movie in some time now! ” - zen-illa
Wendigo (2001)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.0/10 X

Director: Larry Fessenden
“ Fessenden proves again he is the freshest breath of air in the horror genre over the last 20 years. Plus, who doesn't like Ron Perlman? ” - zen-illa
Dark Woods (2003)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.3/10 X  
The crew of the TV show "Real TV" with controlling boss Gunnar on the front line will soon begin production... (85 mins.)

A singer's car breaks down deep in the woods. (88 mins.)
Director: Fabrice Du Welz
“ Gives a whole new level of terror to the backwoods genre of horror. This doesn't contain much death or blood, but it's still creepy as all hell. Incredible performances and unique filmmaking. ” - zen-illa

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.1/10 X  
An Asian cross-cultural trilogy of horror films from accomplished indie directors. (118 mins.)
“ One of the greatest horror anthologies ever. Three of the best directors from Asia each give us a piece, my favourite being Takashi Miike's 'Box'. ” - zen-illa
Antibodies (2005)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.1/10 X  
Long wanted serial killer Gabriel Engel gets arrested in a spectacular police strike. Small town cop... (127 mins.)
“ Film about a German serial killer who is paralyzed from the waist down after a police raid of his apartment; a small town police officer is brought in involving an unsolved murder in his county, then is personally requested by the killer to sit and talk with him.

This rivals Se7en & Silence of the Lambs when it comes to serial killers in movies. Very psychological and disturbing. ” - zen-illa
Sheitan (2006)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.7/10 X  
A group of youngsters go out to a disco on Christmas Eve and accidentally run into a shepherd who has prepared himself for a night of pure insanity. (94 mins.)

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.4/10 X

Director: Roar Uthaug
“ One of the best slashers to come out of the 2000s, in my opinion. Not the same old setting and the same stupid teens getting slashed to pieces. And finally a hardcore, unstoppable killing machine of a slasher again! ” - zen-illa
Them (2006)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.5/10 X  
Lucas and Clementine live peacefully in their isolated country house, but one night they wake up to strange noise... they're not alone... and a group of hooded assailants begin to terrorize them throughout the night. (77 mins.)
“ Based on true stories, we watch as a couple is terrorized by a group in an isolated mansion out in the country. Absolutely terrifying. The Strangers is basically the American version of this; I did enjoy that film, but this one is much more effective. ” - zen-illa

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.1/10 X  
In an abandoned house in Poughkeepsie, New York murder investigators uncover hundreds of tapes showing decades of a serial killer's work. (86 mins.)
“ Diabolical and grim. I love it.
One of the best horror mockumentaries out there, if not the absolute best. The story of the perfect killer who cannot be profiled, who leaves a full house with no fingerprints, who documents all his kills on video, who returns to the scenes of his crimes and even talks to parents of the victims offering 'help', who cannot be stopped. Chilling. ” - zen-illa
The Signal (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.1/10 X  
A horror film told in three parts, from three perspectives, in which a mysterious transmission that turns people into killers invades every cell phone, radio, and television. (103 mins.)
“ It's like a zombie flick, but not really. Very original. I happened upon it by accident and I'm so glad I did. Even a little touching love story going on, just not at all like what you'd think. Really impressed by this one. ” - zen-illa
Whisper (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.8/10 X

Beatrice Dalle- marry me. ” - zen-illa

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.7/10 X  
A group of friends is stalked and murdered while looking for psilocybin mushrooms in the Irish woods. (84 mins.)
“ This never happened to me on mushrooms, ever... but it's still awesome. Once again, a fresh look at the genre even if it has a typical sort of ending. ” - zen-illa
Acolytes (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.6/10 X  
Three teenagers blackmail a serial killer. (91 mins.)
Director: Jon Hewitt
“ Pretty neat film that kept me guessing a bit; not the typical slasher, and it's not reaaaally a slasher. It's a great thriller that has its moments of horror. ” - zen-illa
The Burrowers (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.8/10 X

Director: J.T. Petty
“ Any time a horror film is set back in the old, old days I love it! Check this one out. Sort of like what you'd imagine Tremors would be like if you lived in the Wild West. ” - zen-illa
Deadgirl (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.7/10 X  
Two high school boys discover an imprisoned woman in an abandoned mental asylum who cannot die. (101 mins.)
“ This movie is full of creeps, and it's one of the more original takes on zombie horror you'll find. Some great acting too by a young cast. ” - zen-illa
Dead Birds (2004)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.7/10 X  
A group of Confederate soldiers hole up in an abandoned plantation after robbing a bank and find themselves at the mercy of supernatural forces. (91 mins.)
Director: Alex Turner

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.7/10 X

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.1/10 X

When Brent turns down his classmate Lola's invitation to the prom, she concocts a wildly violent plan for revenge. (84 mins.)
Director: Sean Byrne
“ Creepy, psycho family? This is the mother of all. Absolutely insane and devilish fun. It kept surprising me. It also has a really cool little subplot about the geeky best friend and the dangerous, sort of creepy, slutty girl going to prom together. Great flick! ” - zen-illa

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.6/10 X

Amazing Canadian film that really keeps you involved- the ending is brutal, and touching. ” - zen-illa

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.5/10 X

Director: Anders Banke
“ One of the coolest, most genius and funny horror movies of the last decade! A doctor who was part of an army SS in the 40s is now trying to (seemingly) get rid of a vampire curse that has plagued a small Swedish town. A couple young pill popping doctors find a case of the doctors 'pills' and think it's party time. Mayhem, hilarity and gore ensue. Killer ending too, and a rocking soundtrack featuring a great song by The Hives, and many others. ” - zen-illa

A group of students investigates a series of mysterious bear killings, but learns that there are much more dangerous things going on. They start to follow a mysterious hunter, learning that he is actually a troll hunter. (103 mins.)
Director: André Øvredal
“ Finally got to see this after waiting so long, and I personally feel it was well worth the wait.

Another found footage film, but this one delivers a truly original story outside the norm. A documentary crew runs into a man who claims to be a troll hunter, and then takes them along as he shows them his job in hopes they'll help expose the truth. Absolutely incredible. ” - zen-illa
Reykjavik Whale Watching Massacre (2009)

An epic tale about a group of whale watchers, whose ship breaks down and they get picked up by a whale fisher vessel. The Fishbillies on the vessel has just gone bust, and everything goes out of control. (90 mins.)
Director: Júlíus Kemp
“ A new way to look at the whole psycho slasher family.

Everyone should check this out. A few things I didn't like, but overall it had some excellent kills, one or two really interesting characters, and it was a fresh look at the genre using the background of whale watching/catching. ” - zen-illa
