My favorite horror movies

I prefer horror movies released during 21st century, also not a huge fan of supernatural or alien related stuff. Horror movies based on realistic events are definitely more to my liking. I've watched pretty much horror and there are only few films that I can say I like and those are listed here. I hope this list gives some help when looking for good horror to watch.
