The "Horror Elite" Returns!

After I and the other prominent horror bloggers were chewed apart for our list of the 50 greatest horror movies because so few modern films were listed, Brian Solomon from Vault of Horror had us compile our favorite MODERN (1990-today) movies, and came up with a list of the top 25. As before, there are some oddball choices, and the number 1 film, while great, may not have actually been anyone's top pick. This is due to an inherent flaw in the polling system style, but that style is also the best way to do this type of thing, so take the good with the bad. Anyway, click HERE to read the list, and then help me track down whoever the fuck voted for H20 enough to keep movies like The Devil's Backbone off the list entirely!


  1. Not too bad of a list, but I'm curious about the inclusion of Eyes Wide Shut. That's a horror

  2. BC,

    Hi. I'm with you. Halloween H20 has no business on the list. Bah humbug.

    My list:

    The Ring
    The Ruins
    Dawn of the Dead
    Ginger Snaps
    The Mist
    Twenty Eight Weeks Later
    Twenty Eight Days Later
    Shaun of the Dead

    Clearly subjective. I'd like to know your top of the Modern Era, BC.



  3. Actually, there were a couple folks who did rank The Descent at number one on their personal lists. Mine was Shaun of Dead.

  4. The order can be debated... but I made my last based on quality of production, relevance, and creep factor.

    I'm sure I'll be flamed LOL
