Director: John Landis
“ mixes genuine scary moments (the dream within a dream in hospital) with some humour. 2 likeable leads. Still the best werewolf or monster movie ever and still just about me fav ever. ” - d-tomlin

Director: James Wan
“ Saw is a great horror film.It will keep you guessing right to the end and of course it has a great twist ending.Parts 2 and 3 also good but then it does get a bit repetative and rather pointless,which is a shame as it takes the gloss off the earlier films.Tobin Bell,as jigsaw,a horror movie villian up there with the best. But the original Saw is a must see.
SAW 2 WOULD BE IN THE TOP 50 ” - d-tomlin

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.5/10 X

“ Spanish film.A documentary crew following fireman are getting bored,then they get a call out to an housing apartment.That's when the action starts and you've no idea what's coming next, candidate for the best horror of the 2000's.The story continues in [rec 2], also a must see.
Rec 3 is not really connected to 1 and 2. OK but not in same league.
REC 2 WOULD BE IN THE TOP 50. ” - d-tomlin

Director: John Carpenter
“ A bunch of characters in the artic,are under threat from The Thing.The suspense builds and builds,but it is those great special effects that make it memorable,despite being over 30 years old.For whatever reason this one seems to have grown in popularity over the years. ” - d-tomlin
