They said horror was dead by this point around 2000, 2001 & 2002 and then it became the era of horror movie remakes. But aside from that between 2003-2006 came out some of the best horror movies ever made in my opinion like Saw, High Tension, Wolf Creek, House of 1000 Corpse, Dead Silence, The Collector, 28 Days Later, Land of the Dead and many others.
