An aging porn star agrees to participate in an "art film" in order to make a clean break from the business, only to discover that he has been drafted into making a pedophilia and necrophilia themed snuff film. (104 mins.)
“ It tries quite hard to disturb the viewer, although it ends up being very predictable. Has some funny moments, but is otherwise just an okay film. ” - Dx1433
 
2.
Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans (2009)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.7/10 X  
Terence McDonagh is a drug- and gambling-addled detective in post-Katrina New Orleans investigating the killing of five Senegalese immigrants. (122 mins.)
Director: Werner Herzog
“ As you would expect from pretty much anything Cage is in these days, it's not the greatest piece of cinema in the world. It does however have quite a few "wtf" funny moments through out, and is one of the better things he has done recently. ” - Dx1433
 
3.
Dead Silence (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.2/10 X  
A young widower returns to his hometown to search for answers to his wife's murder, which may be linked to the ghost of a murdered ventriloquist. (89 mins.)
Director: James Wan
“ Very very generic and predictable, but it had an interesting idea; the idea just wasn't realized to it's potential. ” - Dx1433
 
4.
Halloween II (2009)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.9/10 X  
Laurie Strode struggles to come to terms with her brother Michael's deadly return to Haddonfield, Illinois; meanwhile, Michael prepares for another reunion with his sister. (105 mins.)
Director: Rob Zombie
“ One of the worst films I have seen in recent history. I think it's time that Rob stops playing director, and goes back to music. ” - Dx1433
 
5.
Rubber (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.8/10 X  
A homicidal car tire, discovering it has destructive psionic power, sets its sights on a desert town once a mysterious woman becomes its obsession. (82 mins.)
Director: Quentin Dupieux
“ If you take the intro to heart, it's quite enjoyable. It starts by telling you that things happen for no reason; and they really stick to that idea the whole film. ” - Dx1433
 
6.
Saint (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.6/10 X  
A horror film that depicts St. Nicholas as a murderous bishop who kidnaps and murders children when there is a full moon on December 5. (85 mins.)
Director: Dick Maas
“ Corny as hell, funny, and enjoyable. As someone who grew up with the Sinterklaas/Sankt Nikolaus idea, and The Krampus, it's nice to see a new generation of kids being a bit scared of more than coal in their stockings on Christmas. ” - Dx1433
 
7.
The Hunger Games (2012)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.2/10 X

Director: Gary Ross
“ Lord of The Flies + The Running Man + Battle Royale = The Hunger Games, now with 1/10th the calories. ” - Dx1433
 
8.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.5/10 X  
A family moves into a house inhabited by scary creatures and a number of close calls ensue. (75 mins.)

“ Good old corny shlock. Funny, weird, and childishly entertaining. ” - Dx1433
 
9.
The Tunnel (2011)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.9/10 X  
An investigation into a government cover-up leads to a network of abandoned train tunnels deep beneath the heart of Sydney. As a journalist and her crew hunt for the story it quickly becomes clear the story is hunting them. (90 mins.)
Director: Carlo Ledesma
“ Better than expected. Very very predictable, but still quite entertaining. ” - Dx1433

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.7/10 X  
On a late night visit to an ATM, three co-workers end up in a desperate fight for their lives when they become trapped by an unknown man. (90 mins.)
Director: David Brooks
“ Not horrible, but not exactly good, either. ” - Dx1433
 
11.
Tormented (2009)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.2/10 X  
A bullied teenager comes back from the dead to take revenge on his classmates. (91 mins.)
Director: Jon Wright
“ Reviewers have it right when they call it horror for the Skins generation. Entertaining, but ultimately juvenile, shallow and kind of missing the point. You don't really care when any of the victims die, but you don't really care about the killer, either. ” - Dx1433
 
12.
Chronicle (2012)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.1/10 X  
Whilst attending a party, three high school friends gain superpowers after making an incredible discovery underground. Soon, though, they find their lives spinning out of control and their bond tested as they embrace their darker sides. (84 mins.)
Director: Josh Trank
“ It feels like you've seen it a hundred times before; which doesn't necessarily make it a bad film, just "so-so". I loved the idea, but it felt lack-lustre. ” - Dx1433
 
13.
The Woman in Black (2012)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.4/10 X  
A young solicitor travels to a remote village where he discovers the vengeful ghost of a scorned woman is terrorizing the locals. (95 mins.)
Director: James Watkins
“ Straight to the point ghost story. Well done, if not bland. All scares are jump scares, and nothing is exactly scary in the film itself, but it was well done in what it did right. The end is horribly predictable, however. Nice to see Hammer making films again. ” - Dx1433
 
14.
Underworld Awakening (2012)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.4/10 X  
When human forces discover the existence of the Vampire and Lycan clans, a war to eradicate both species commences. The vampire warrior Selene leads the battle against humankind. (88 mins.)
Director: Mårlind, Stein
“ It stars off by destroying anything that was relate-able, or enjoyable about the original films. Dives into a plot which screams "revamp", and ends very very suddenly. It kind of leaves you feeling like the projectionist forgot there was another reel of film to play. ” - Dx1433
 
15.
Diary of the Dead (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.7/10 X  
A group of young film students run into real-life zombies while filming a horror movie of their own. (95 mins.)
“ In no way one of George A. Romero's best films, but definitely not the worst. It's all "found-footage", and follows that stereotype to a T. The most enjoyable moment was watching zombies enjoy some flesh in the beautiful Regent Park, Toronto. ” - Dx1433
 
16.
The Innkeepers (2011)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.5/10 X  
During the final days at the Yankee Pedlar Inn, two employees determined to reveal the hotel's haunted past begin to experience disturbing events as old guests check in for a stay. (101 mins.)
Director: Ti West
“ One of the most boring "ghost story" films I've seen in a long time. It seemed that whoever had written it, decided that writing a one page synopsis was enough to turn into a full film. It had it's entertaining moments, but to find them, and in between them, feels like you're waiting forever. ” - Dx1433
 
17.
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.)

18.
Hatchet (2006)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.7/10 X  
When a group of tourists on a New Orleans haunted swamp tour find themselves stranded in the wilderness, their evening of fun and spooks turns into a horrific nightmare. (85 mins.)
Director: Adam Green
“ Everyone keeps talking about this film, as if it is a saviour for the old school 80s slasher genre. I can understand why people say this; if they haven't seen many 80s slashers. It tries, and to me, falls a bit short of the big dream they had for it. Nice casting, good idea, but lack lustre results. ” - Dx1433
 
19.
Hatchet II (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.5/10 X

20.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.6/10 X

Director: Justin Kurzel
“ An enjoyable film, but it feels like the scenes are a little thrown together. ” - Dx1433
 
21.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.0/10 X

Two couples spend a weekend in the country, only to cross paths with a brutal serial killer. As the body count rises, suspicion spirals into paranoia, climaxing in a terrifying battle for survival. (80 mins.)
Director: Kelly Smith
“ Overly predictable, but still an enjoyable watch. You can pretty much tell every single thing that is going to happen in the film, just by the name of it. ” - Dx1433
 
23.
I Sell the Dead (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.1/10 X  
A grave robber reflects on his life of crime. (85 mins.)
Director: Glenn McQuaid

The bizarre and musical tale of a girl who travels to another dimension through the gateway found in her family's basement. (74 mins.)
Director: Richard Elfman
“ Insanity, absurdity, irrationality, and maybe a touch of depravity. Basically a reworking of Alice in Wonderland; with more tits, catchy songs, and confusion than you can shake a stick at. ” - Dx1433
 
25.
Food, Inc. (2008 Documentary)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.9/10 X

Two friends discover a puzzle box in Mexico, which unleashes cenobite Pinhead. (75 mins.)
Director: Victor Garcia
“ A predictable cluster-*beep* of bad writing, bad acting, bad ideas, and Pin head with chipmunk cheeks. You will never be surprised with this one. Other than maybe five words through the whole film, it's a great let down. ” - Dx1433
 
28.

A CIA operative hires a team of mercenaries to eliminate a Latin dictator and a renegade CIA agent. (103 mins.)
“ They took the action film stereotype, and ran it thread-bare. No surprises, quite a bit of bad acting, and an all around dopey concept. Nice action scenes, but nothing that hasn't been done thousands upon thousands of times. For the budget, some of the CGI is far far below sub-par. ” - Dx1433
 
30.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.6/10 X

“ I was expecting a teaming pile, here; but was surprised it was not that bad. The Rock is a horrible actor, and Vanessa isn't much better (There's a very awkward ass close-up on her for some reason), but they somehow don't end up ruining it. ” - Dx1433
 
35.
