Some of my favorite horror films since 2000

I've seen so many horror movies that i have to limit the year to 2000+ that's not to say i didn't enjoy films such as Suspiria, The Exorcist, The Birds etc. These films are in no particular order and include sub-genres (slasher,comedy etc) more movies will be added as I either see them or I think of them.

“ Ti West delivers with this one. Don't expect all hell to break loose right from the opening credits. It's a throwback to early 70s horror films where building suspense is what it does best. Ti West does a great job of that. If you like all types of horror movies, see this slow gradual buildup flick. ” - sandman401
