Not Rated | 120 min | Comedy, Horror
It's the closing night at the last drive-in theater in America, and Cecil Kaufman has planned to show four movies, which are so rare that they have never been exhibited publicly on American soil, until this very night.

Unrated | 84 min | Action, Horror

Just as stupid as zombi 3 or zombie flesh eaters 2... or whatever it was called. My favourite part was when they hear zombie moans from the island, so decided to go to the island..... tbf if they are that stupid they deserve to be shred to pieces.
39. Inside (2007)
R | 82 min | Horror
Four months after the death of her husband, a woman on the brink of motherhood is tormented in her home by a strange woman who wants her unborn baby.

Unrated | 85 min | Horror
A professor opens a crypt and reanimates rotten zombies. The zombies attack a jet-set-group which is celebrating a party in a villa nearby...
again retarted horror film, which has to be loved because its so stupidly over the top. Favourite moments include a dwarf pretending to be a child trying to rape his on screen mother.. and a butler suggest to let the zombies in the house they have locked themselves in because according to him they might be looking for something else... of course he opens the doors only to be shred to pieces.
41. The Woman in Black (2012)

A young solicitor travels to a remote village where he discovers the vengeful ghost of a scorned woman is terrorizing the locals.
Votes: 158,444 | Gross: $54.33M
Harry Potter guy cannot act, so thankfully this film relied on scares more then acting. It was okay, personally did not find it scary, but the annoying bitches in the cinema did :(
42. The Howling: Reborn (2011 Video)
R | 88 min | Drama, Horror
A teenage outcast discovers he is a werewolf, and must battle a pack of the brutal creatures when they threaten him and his new girlfriend.
Where to start? Well at least it was better than Howling 2, 5 and 7, but lets be honest they were crapper then crap itself. This film was awful from start to finish, the main actor could not act, he just attempted to act through out, and it was unbearable to watch. The special effects were awful, and most of the interesting characters died.... how disappointing; it seems they will continue to produce these crap howling sequels. Also what was up with the narration?
43. When a Man Falls (2007)
R | 86 min | Drama, Thriller
The intertwining lives of three men reveal that each deal with his problems in different, self-destructive ways
Only seen it because Timothy Hutton was in it. Downfall of the film was that every character was so depressing, not one character smiled through out the film, postively the film did have character devolepment, again however downfall was that they were all so miserable. Overall the film was okay, dont expect to much from it, however it did have good acting from Dylan Baker and Hutton.
44. Insidious (I) (2010)
PG-13 | 103 min | Horror, Mystery, Thriller
A family looks to prevent evil spirits from trapping their comatose child in a realm called The Further.
Votes: 236,960 | Gross: $54.01M
Decent horror story that is a poltergeist wanna-be, however does have some good quailties to it; the music is very affected and makes the film scarier, plus there are a few good twists to the story. Where it fails is in the ending, it becomes too predicatable towards the end which is a shame because this film is probably one of the better horror films that have been out in the past year.
45. Warrior (2011)
PG-13 | 140 min | Drama, Sport
The youngest son of an alcoholic former boxer returns home, where he's trained by his father for competition in a mixed martial arts tournament - a path that puts the fighter on a collision course with his estranged, older brother.
Votes: 382,832 | Gross: $13.66M
Only watched after seeing Joel Edgerton in The Thing and seeing this film had good reviews and was in the IMDB Top 250, so thought I would give it a try. Glad I did, I can see why it have good reviews because it is a great film with great acting and a great storyline. Had me on the edge of the seat through out the film, one of the best films I have seen in a while.
46. The Lost Tomb of Jesus (2007 TV Movie)
Not Rated | 102 min | Documentary
The Lost Tomb of Jesus is a documentary which makes a case that the 2,000-year-old "Tomb of the Ten Ossuaries" belonged to the family of Jesus of Nazareth.
An interesting watch that puts together a good argument that maybe Jesus and Mary M were married, and also had a son called Judas, however will be equally interesting to research the arguments against this documentary because I know there are a lot.
47. Daybreakers (2009)
R | 98 min | Action, Fantasy, Horror
In the year 2019, a plague has transformed almost every human into vampires. Faced with a dwindling blood supply, the fractured dominant race plots their survival; meanwhile, a researcher works with a covert band of vamps on a way to save humankind.
Votes: 113,043 | Gross: $30.10M
A different type of vampire film that I enjoyed, with just the perfect amount of gore and blood. Enjoyed it throughout, however not the best film made; worth a look as it is one of the better vampire movies produced in the last few years.
48. The Artist (I) (2011)
PG-13 | 100 min | Comedy, Drama, Romance
A silent movie star meets a young dancer, but the arrival of talking pictures sends their careers in opposite directions.
Votes: 209,220 | Gross: $44.67M
With all the Oscar buzz around it I thought I would give it a try, overall it was very cute and enjoyable movie that put a smile on my face. What I really like is that it was really different from any other movie out, overall I can see why it is getting great reviews. Jean Dujardin was fantastic in the role, and deserves the bast acting award if he wins it; although will have to see the other nominees films first.
49. 30 Days of Night (2007)
R | 113 min | Horror, Thriller
