Every year, we here at Sound On Sight celebrate the month of October with 31 Days of Horror; and every year, I update the list of my favourite horror films ever made. Last year, I released a list that included 150 picks. This year, I’ll be upgrading the list, making minor alterations, changing the rankings, adding new entries, and possibly removing a few titles. I’ve also decided to publish each post backwards this time for one reason: the new additions appear lower on my list, whereas my top 50 haven’t changed much, except for maybe in ranking. Enjoy!

Hannibal Season 1, Episode 11 “Rôti?
Directed by Guillermo Navarro
Airs Thursdays at 10pm Et on NBC
Hannibal serves up another delicious course with its eleventh episode of the series, “Rôti,” as Dr. Abel Gideon (Eddie Izzard) escapes and Will’s descent into madness escalates to a fever pitch. While Will turns to Hannibal for help with his continued mental breakdown, Gideon searches for the Chesapeake Ripper, leaving behind clues (body parts) so he’ll know where to find him.
In terms of plot, characterization, scientific research, dialogue, acting, editing and cinematography, Hannibal is in a class of its own. There is no other network series quite like it; none so daring and none so masterfully crafted. This week’s episode sees a huge shift in ideas – and is a major turning point to what promises to be a stunning finale. “Roti” is »
The Hunter was one of this writer’s favourite films of last year- at once thrilling and heartbreaking, mysterious and involving, it tells the tale of Willem Dafoe’s silent hunter, hired by a shady corporation to attempt to track down the legendary Tasmanian Tiger, thought to be extinct for years. But once he starts to get involved with the family whose house he is living in, and gets on the wrong side of the aggressive townspeople, things start to go terribly wrong. It is a well-acted, well-paced, poetic and original film of which we see little these days. I suggest you seek it out. Another factor to praise it for is its direction, and that is entirely down to Daniel Nettheim.
