    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.7/10 X  
A lawyer takes on a negligent homicide case involving a priest who performed an exorcism on a young girl. (119 mins.)
“ The most prevalent complaint I hear from people who hated this film was that it wasn't enough of a horror film. I disagree, but this is a horror film that takes the form of a courtroom drama, which I found an intriguing premise for an exorcist themed film.

For Fans of: The Mothman Prophecies, The Exorcist, ” - badscene
 
7.
The Skeleton Key (2005)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.5/10 X

For Fans of: The Strangers, High Tension, Martyrs, Inside ” - badscene

The Hills Have Eyes (2006)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.4/10 X  
A suburban American family is being stalked by a group of psychotic people who live in the desert, far away from civilization. (107 mins.)
Director: Alexandre Aja
“ Wes Craven produced this remake to his 1977 classic, with surprisingly radical results. The film's brutality and superior cast definitely makes this a much more effective experience than watching the campy original. In laymens terms, as far as horror remakes go this ranks up there with the best. ” - badscene
 
11.

For Fans of: Stephen King, Cloverfield, Storm of the Century, ” - badscene
 
12.
Funny Games (2007)

Two psychopathic young men take a family hostage in their cabin. (111 mins.)
Director: Michael Haneke
“ This is Michael Heneke's American re-make of his 1997 Austrian film of the same title. Both are masterpieces, but I find myself preferring this version. It is a shockingly brutal and relentlessly honest look at the harsh reality of violence, intended to disturb the viewer in such a way, that it stands effective as a commentary against the trivialization of death and violence in entertainment. ” - badscene
 
13.
Planet Terror (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.2/10 X

14.
The Orphanage (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.5/10 X

For Fans of: Pan's Labyrinth, The Devil's Backbone, The Others ” - badscene
 
15.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X  
A man who specializes in debunking paranormal occurrences checks into the fabled room 1408 in the Dolphin Hotel. Soon after settling in, he confronts genuine terror. (104 mins.)

Death Proof (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.1/10 X  
Two separate sets of voluptuous women are stalked at different times by a scarred stuntman who uses his "death proof" cars to execute his murderous plans. (113 mins.)
“ Modern film master Tarantino puts his talents toward a horror film with awesome results. A homage to both the grindhouse horror flicks of the 70's and bad-ass chick movies in general, Death Proof is a fun, original and seriously satisfying dose of Tarantino. ” - badscene
 
17.
Borderland (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.6/10 X  
On a trip to a Mexican border town, three college friends stumble upon a human-sacrifice cult. (105 mins.)
Director: Zev Berman
“ The epitome of post-Hostel, Borderland is another young tourists get entwined in some serious sh*t horror film. It's brutal but very well made. While not quite as good as Hostel, it's far superior to the generally panned Hostel II.

For Fans of: Hostel, Wolf Creek, Turistas ” - badscene
 
18.
Paranormal Activity (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.3/10 X  
After moving into a suburban home, a couple becomes increasingly disturbed by a nightly demonic presence. (86 mins.)
Director: Oren Peli
“ I saw this in theaters and laughed it off. Watched it in bed on DVD a few months later and was too scared to finish it. Do yourself a favor and make sure when you watch this you're all alone in your house and that it's late. ” - badscene
 
19.
Halloween (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.1/10 X

Anyone who crosses his path is in mortal danger. (109 mins.)
Director: Rob Zombie
“ A white trash re-working of Halloween by Zombie. I would prefer this had never been made but since it was I try to see the good in it...

1. It's a hell of a lot scarier than the Elm Street or Friday the 13th Remakes.
2. It aims to shock with every scene and is definitely pushing the boundaries of what you're used to seeing in Hollywood released horror films. ” - badscene
 
20.
[Rec] (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.5/10 X  
A television reporter and cameraman follow emergency workers into a dark apartment building and are quickly locked inside with something terrifying. (78 mins.)
“ Straight out of Spain, REC. is a terrifyingly realistic and claustrophobic zombie flick all filmed through the lens of a news camera.

For Fans of: Dawn of the Dead, Paranormal Activity, 28 Days Later ” - badscene
 
21.
Inside (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.9/10 X  
Four months after the death of her husband, a woman on the brink of motherhood is tormented in her home by a strange woman who wants her unborn baby. (82 mins.)
“ Relentlessly gory and increasingly hard to watch, Inside is another extremely brutal horror film from France. The runtime is relatively short, around 75 minutes, but that's more than enough time to leave you traumatized for weeks. ” - badscene
 
22.
28 Weeks Later (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.0/10 X  
Six months after the rage virus was inflicted on the population of Great Britain, the US Army helps to secure a small area of London for the survivors to repopulate and start again. But not everything goes to plan. (100 mins.)
“ While not as good as it's predecessor or Spain's REC., 28 Weeks Later stands as one of he few quality horror sequels in the history of film that can stand on their own. ” - badscene
 
23.
Disturbia (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.9/10 X  
A teen living under house arrest becomes convinced his neighbor is a serial killer. (105 mins.)
Director: D.J. Caruso
“ Shia Labeouf stars in this teen cast pseudo-remake of Hitchcock's Rear Window. Suspenseful and thrilling, but also fun in a teen vigilante kind of way, this is a film that exists solely to entertain.

For Fans of: Fright Night, Rear Window, Cape Fear, ” - badscene
 
24.
Trick 'r Treat (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X  
Five interwoven stories that occur on Halloween: An everyday high school principal has a secret life as a serial killer; a college virgin might have just met the guy for her; a group of teenagers pull a mean prank; a woman who loathes the night has to contend with her holiday-obsessed husband; and a mean old man meets his match with a demonic, supernatural trick-or-treater. (82 mins.)
“ My vote for best horror anthology film, Trick 'r Treat is incredible (puts Creepshow to shame) and one of the best Halloween horror films ever made. The stories intertwine perfectly and throws enough twists and shocks out that your jaw is likely to be dropped through most of it. It's a twisted good time and there's something here for everyone.

For Fans of: Creepshow, Halloween, Tales From the Darkside, ” - badscene
 
25.
Rogue (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.2/10 X  
An American journalist on assignment in the Australian outback encounters a man-eating crocodile while trapped on a rapidly flooding mud island. (99 mins.)
Director: Greg McLean
“ The aussie film, Rogue is without a doubt the best killer gator film of all time. Take that however you like. Jaws on steroids.

For Fans of: Jaws, Open Water, Anaconda, ” - badscene
 
26.
Frontier(s) (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.3/10 X  
A gang of young thieves flee Paris during the violent aftermath of a political election, only to hole up at an Inn run by neo-Nazis. (108 mins.)
Director: Xavier Gens
“ Another brutal bloodbath from the French extreme horror movement. Frontiers is the modern euro answer to the Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and lightyears better than any of it's remakes or sequels.

For Fans on: Martyrs, Hostel, Deliverance, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre ” - badscene
 
27.
Martyrs (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.1/10 X  
A young woman's quest for revenge against the people who kidnapped and tormented her as a child leads her and a friend, who is also a victim of child abuse, on a terrifying journey into a living hell of depravity. (99 mins.)
Director: Pascal Laugier
“ This notoriously brutal French horror film really set the bar for modern horror and puts Hollywood to shame. Where are all the good horror movies these days? Try France... ” - badscene
 
28.
Hostel: Part II (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.4/10 X  
Three American college students studying abroad are lured to a Slovakian hostel, and discover the grim reality behind it. (94 mins.)
Director: Eli Roth
“ Gorier and more disturbing than the first at the expense of weaker acting and plotting, Hostel Part II will turn your stomach. Heaps of raw and gratuitously hardcore torture, some of it incredibly awkward, but still an effective horror film. ” - badscene
 
29.
Let the Right One In (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.0/10 X

A young couple staying in an isolated vacation home are terrorized by three unknown assailants. (86 mins.)
Director: Bryan Bertino
“ This is modern Hollywood horror at it's finest. The film builds in intensity very gradually making The Strangers a scarier and more effective than any of it's Hollywood competitors.

For Fans of: Them (ils), You're Next, Inside, Vacancy ” - badscene
 
31.
Eden Lake (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X  
Refusing to let anything spoil their romantic weekend break, a young couple confront a gang of loutish youths with terrifyingly brutal consequences. (91 mins.)
Director: James Watkins
“ A disturbing UK horror film where the villain is neither monster or masked slasher, but seriously disturbed teenagers.

For Fans of: Deliverance, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Strangers ” - badscene
 
32.
Cloverfield (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.0/10 X  
A group of friends venture deep into the streets of New York on a rescue mission during a rampaging monster attack. (85 mins.)

For Fans of: The Mist, Godzilla, Alien, Paranormal Activity, The Host ” - badscene
 
33.
The Last House on the Left (2009)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.6/10 X  
After kidnapping and brutally assaulting two young women, a gang unknowingly finds refuge at a vacation home belonging to the parents of one of the victims: a mother and father who devise an increasingly gruesome series of revenge tactics. (110 mins.)
Director: Dennis Iliadis
“ A brutally successful remake of the Wes Craven camp classic. Gone is the abysmal acting, the ridiculously out of place banjo music, and the micro-budget. What you have now is an engrossing disturbing horror film that can actually be felt. A film that does justice to the 1960 Bergman film "The Virgin Spring".

For Fans of: I Spit on Your Grave, Funny Games, Martyrs, ” - badscene
 
34.
Drag Me to Hell (2009)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.6/10 X

35.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.2/10 X  
A social worker fights to save a girl from her abusive parents, only to discover that the situation is more dangerous than she ever expected. (109 mins.)
“ Weaker than Orphan, but for the evil child sub-genre Case 39 is easily one of the better films out there. Renee Zellweger stars as foster mother to evil. Check it out!

For Fans of: Orphan, The Ring, The Omen ” - badscene
 
36.
Zombieland (2009)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.7/10 X

Director: Ruben Fleischer
“ Hilariously entertaining, this film was so much more than I expected it to be. Not generally being a fan of horror comedies, I thought Zombieland was truly exceptional; thanks for the most part to a solid script and a strong cast led by Emma Stone and Jesse Eisenberg. ” - badscene
 
37.
Orphan (2009)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.0/10 X  
A husband and wife who recently lost their baby adopt a nine year-old girl who is not nearly as innocent as she claims to be. (123 mins.)
“ The best evil child film of the decade. While it's nowhere near as good as The Omen, the strong acting, skillful plotting, and an original twist I can promise you have never seen before make Orphan a modern horror classic.

For Fans of: The Omen, The Bad Seed, The Good son, ” - badscene
 
38.
The Human Centipede (First Sequence) (2009)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.4/10 X  
A mad scientist kidnaps and mutilates a trio of tourists in order to reassemble them into a human centipede, created by stitching their mouths to each others' rectums. (92 mins.)
Director: Tom Six
“ At it's core, The Human Centipede's definitely alot weaker than any film on this list. However, as a shock / gross-out film The Human Centipede is a success. I'd insist any horror fan check it out for some of the most disturbing scenes in horror film history. ” - badscene
 
39.
Jennifer's Body (2009)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.1/10 X  
A newly possessed high school cheerleader turns into a succubus who specializes in killing her male classmates. Can her best friend put an end to the horror? (102 mins.)
Director: Karyn Kusama
“ Jennifer's Body is Diablo Cody's second film penned after Juno. The trademark Juno dialogue is still there at the expense of substantially weaker direction, still Jennifer's Body is something new for horror. Regardless of what you have read, this film is a satire; A supernaturally gory Scream for the Mean Girls generation.

For Fans of: Ginger Snaps, Heathers, Buffy the Vampire Slayer ” - badscene
 
40.
Sorority Row (2009)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.1/10 X  
A group of sorority sisters try to cover up the death of their house-sister after a prank gone wrong, only to be stalked by a serial killer. (101 mins.)
Director: Stewart Hendler
“ Despite the ludicrous plotting and having more red herrings than a kosher delicatessen, Sorority Row is an entertaining film with some pretty awesome kill scenes.

Though a remake of the 80's slasher classic"House on Sorority Row", this film feels like a harkening back to the Post-Scream slashers of the 90's.

For Fans of: 90's Slasher Revivals, I Know What You Did Last Summer, Urban Legend, ” - badscene
 
41.
The House of the Devil (2009)

During a night of 1983 with full lunar eclipse, Samantha Hughes takes a babysitting job surrounded by mysterious circumstances before she finds out her client's terrifying secret. (95 mins.)
Director: Ti West
“ I love this film. A brilliantly crafted 1980's set horror film that I just didn't want to end. I've never seen a modern film so successfully capture the essence of the 80's like this film has. You literally feel like you're watching something out of the John Hughes catalog and the lead actress here feels like the missing brat packer.

For Fans of: Rosemary's Baby, When a Stranger Calls, ” - badscene
 
42.
Black Swan (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.0/10 X

The sadistic members of a villainous family return to their childhood home to terrorize the new home owners and their guests. (112 mins.)
“ My personal favorite horror film of 2010 and My vote for the best horror remake of the decade. In the home invasion sub-genre, Mother's day plays second fiddle only to the brutally revolutionary "Funny Games".

For Fans of: Last House on the Left, You're Next, Funny Games ” - badscene
 
44.
Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.7/10 X

“ Part horror, part fantasy, and part comedy, Rare Exports is a rare and unique type of film that takes the "evil Santa Claus" formula to new heights. ” - badscene
 
45.
Piranha 3D (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.5/10 X  
After a sudden underwater tremor sets free scores of the prehistoric man-eating fish, an unlikely group of strangers must band together to stop themselves from becoming fish food for the area's new razor-toothed residents. (88 mins.)
Director: Alexandre Aja
“ An insanely entertaining mega-budget homage to the trite campy T&A addled sleaze horror films we all love of the 1980's. This is how you make a camp horror movie! A CGI gore fest with what's probably the highest body count of any horror film in history. ” - badscene
 
46.
Devil (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.3/10 X  
A group of people are trapped in an elevator and the Devil is mysteriously amongst them. (80 mins.)
“ M Night Shamaylan, man of 1000 disappointments made a pretty solid horror film with Devil. Sure plot-wise it's on par with a twilight zone episode, but who doesnt love the Twilight Zone!? ” - badscene

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.7/10 X

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.2/10 X  
A bullied young boy befriends a young female vampire who lives in secrecy with her guardian. (116 mins.)
Director: Matt Reeves
