Black Mirror (2011– )
Hated in the Nation
TV-MA | 89 min | Drama, Sci-Fi, Thriller

16. Hostel: Part III (2011 Video)
R | 88 min | Horror
Four men attending a bachelor party in Las Vegas fall prey to the Elite Hunting Club, who are hosting a gruesome game show of torture.
Off course it is not a great film (and it is often a bit silly), but it is far from being bad as people say. Indeed, it has several surprising moments (a few of them too implausible, but the others are nice). In my opinion, it is smarter and better than the acclaimed first movie from the franchise. As a matter of fact, Hostel 3 is not really a sequel of Hostel 1 and 2, although the saddism, scatological footage, kidnappings and murders are still there.
18. I Spit on Your Grave (2010)
R | 108 min | Horror, Thriller

Votes: 69,287 | Gross: $0.09M
The first part shows an ultra violent mysoginy. The second part shows dire sadistic revenge. There is no pleasure on watching it... well, on watching the first part (the last one, I admit, there is). Anyway, is is undeniably a very well done horror film.
19. Come and See (1985)
Not Rated | 142 min | Drama, War

I believe this brilliant war movie (Idi i smotri, in its original title) may be considered as a horror film.
