For me, The Descent
is numero uno. I'll also give props to 28 Days/Weeks Later
and Trick 'r Treat
, which I actually got to see at a theatrical screening a couple months ago at a horror film festival.
Oh, and at that same festival, I saw a British film called The Children
, which I felt was effectively freaky and scary -- not sure if I'd call it one of the best of the decade, but I thought it was pretty good.
Oh, and didn't Paranormal Activity
come out this year, not 2007? Unless maybe it's release has been delayed for a while, like with Trick 'r Treat
. I may go see Paranormal Activity
, I'm not sure... I've kind of been fearing that it'll turn out to be like another Blair Witch Project
, which I didn't find scary at all.
