Kindertrauma Funhouse :: Decade Round-Up!

January 1st, 2010 by unkle lancifer · 16 Comments

Since it’s New Year’s Day, I thought I’d share 20 swatches from the posters of 20 of my favorite horror movies of the last decade. Can you guess the movies?

Disclaimer: There are a lot of great movies missing from this list (I don’t think there are too many left field surprises though). I’m not claiming that these movies are superior to any others, just that these are the ones that resonated the most with yours truly for whatever arbitrary reason.

Furthermore, because I try to have an open mind rather than a stagnant one, my opinion is subject to change at the drop of a dime. In other words, take it all with a grain of salt. I’m already regretting not including the fascinating HOSTEL based solely on my bitter feelings toward its director (by the way ELI, enough with the texting, if you liked it then you should have put a ring on it.), THE DARK HOURS (simply because I don’t think many people have seen it.) and the genre-defying masterpieces MULHOLLAND DR. and IRREVERSIBLE.

I also think (with one exception) that I was prejudiced against newer titles just because it’s way too soon to say whether I’m madly in love or just crushing on them.

Also: If you don’t feel like guessing, leave a comment telling all of us about your own favorite films of the decade anyway. One commenter is going to win the beautiful noir comic THE CHILL by JASON STARR (art by MICK BERTILORENZI) courtesy of our pals at DC!

First of all: Happy New Year! My favorite horror films of the last decade… That’s a though one. I must admit, I didn’t get to watch a whole lot of the scary movies which were released in the 00’s, but of the ones I did see I particularly enjoyed these:
‘A Tale of Two Sisters’, ‘All the Boys Love Mandy Lane’, ‘Cabin Fever’, ‘Dawn of the Dead’, ‘Ginger Snaps’, ‘Ju-on: The Grudge’, ‘The Ring’.
There’s probably more, but I can’t think of any others right now.

You picked a great group of films, Unk!  I think in time history will show that this past decade was an outstanding one for horror.
