Best Horror Movies of the 2. So Far. The reason that B- movies became a hotbed for creative filmmakers of all types in the 1. The movies Howard Hawks, John Ford, Val Lewton, and Jacques Tournier (to name a few) directed were never going to win the Academy Awards, at least in the eyes of the studio heads, and therefore, the productions didn’t need to be controlled and looked over so diligently. But then, of course, producers began trying to force prestige onto these same pictures and the rest is groan- worthy history. Image via IFCHorror has, in many ways, taken up the mantle of the B- movies code of creativity, using often itty- bitty budgets to create atmospheric, expressive visions of terror and the grotesque side of humanity’s desires. Directors like Wes Craven and John Carpenter emblemized this kind of thinking in the 1.
The ease of production didn’t necessarily mean that those who envisioned and made these films had the scrappy problem- solving abilities that Walter Hill had, or even had the heightened sense of composition that made Carpenter a legend. It just meant that anyone who had a fondness for cheap scares and cheaper effects in the same vein as Sean S. Cunningham could now make something similar with a production budget well under a million. The same went for most genres of filmmaking that were given brand- new vistas with digital becoming the new norm. And yet, at the same time, a slew of smart, young filmmakers used the freedom that digital allowed to start making films of astonishing ferocity and intimate detail, as much in horror as in drama, comedies, musicals, or film noirs.
At the same time Joe Swanberg and Andrew Bujalski came on the scene, so did Ti West and Adam Wingard, arguably the most talented of this youthful generation of horror hounds. This was also when Rob Zombie put down the down- tuned guitars and picked up a camera, and his filmmaking has increasingly suggested a liberated artistic vision unlike anyone else in the horror racket, or really anywhere on the cinematic spectrum. Image via Magnet. Internationally, France, Mexico, Japan, and Italy have all put out works of stirring fright, films centered on the psychological and supernatural relationship between humans and bodies, their own or those of others. Here in America, however, horror has become a cottage industry today, and we produce more of this particular genre than any other country, which arguably says something not entirely pleasant about our tastes.
Whether from South Korea, Canada, or New York City, the best of these films ruminate on that very thought and there are plenty of just such items on our list of the best horror films of this decade so far, which, not unlike the B- movies of old, features more than a few entries that show more ingenuity and artistic spirit than most so- called prestige pictures. To keep things up to date, we’re updating the list once or twice a year with new titles that deserve to be considered for the canon of the 2. We’ll publish a finalized version of this list in late 2.
The 1. 00 Best Horror Movies of the 1. Everybody likes horror movies, but not everybody has the time to really delve into them and explore the genre. There are just too many, and unless you’re actively making your living as a film critic, it is entirely understandable if you don’t have the time. But that’s how misconceptions get started, those misleading observations based only on the most visible motion pictures in a genre, like the frequently expressed belief that the 1. That’s not really fair. The 1. 99. 0s were, if we take a serious look at it, an exceptionally interesting time for the horror movie genre, although that does perhaps have something to do with the fact that it was going through an identity crisis. The 1. 98. 0s were easily defined as an era of slasher thrillers and ambitious gore films, but those trends were already dying out by the time the 1.
The late 1. 99. 0s would eventually be defined by Scream and the ironic genre commentaries that emerged in its wake, but the majority of the decade was an amorphous time period in which filmmakers experimented with new ideas, toyed around with the old ones, and produced a lot of exciting movies as a result. Of course not every horror movie from the 1. A couple of the most popular ones didn’t even make this list, and we’ve already produced an entire downloadable commentary track, available free of charge, that explains why Event Horizon is one of them. But despite their absence it still wasn’t difficult to compile this list of one hundred great – and if not great then at least entertaining (or at least extremely interesting) – horror movies from throughout the decade. These films reveal just how diverse and fascinating the genre really was in the 1.
So the next time someone tells you that horror movies sucked in the 1. Even some of the so- called “bad” horror movies of the era are worthy of new eyes twenty years later, and it may surprise you to learn that they play a lot better now than they did the first time. Let’s get rolling with. The Burning Moon (1.
Intervision. German filmmaker Olaf Ittenbach didn’t just make The Burning Moon, he got away with it. It’s the sort of film makes you want to call the police. Shot on home video, Ittenbach’s movie is the sick tale of a demented teen telling his little sister bedtime stories, but they are completely unacceptable for children or even adults of any age, detailing detestable murders and finally a descent into one of the most gruesome Hells ever conceived. It doesn’t belong in your home video library, it belongs in evidence locker. But there’s a market for that sort of thing. Man’s Best Friend (1.
New Line Cinema. Can a film have multiple personality disorder? John Lafia’s killer dog movie doesn’t quite know if it wants to be Air Bud or Cujo, and it races back and forth between family- friendly jokes and horrifying imagery like a dog repeatedly catching a stick.
It’s the story of a newspaper reporter who liberates a dog from a shady laboratory, only to discover that it’s a dangerous, genetically enhanced organism that can turn invisible, eat cats whole and even cut her boyfriend’s brakes. Man’s Best Friend is definitely ridiculous, but it’s also entertaining from start to finish. Popcorn (1. 99. 1)Studio Three Film Corporation. A group of film students rents out a movie theater for an all- night horror film festival, complete with William Castle gimmicks like Smellovision and electrified seats, but in all the crowd- pleasing commotion nobody seems to notice that a maniac is murdering everyone offstage. Clever deaths and an unexpected, charismatic villain make Popcorn one of the better slashers you’ve probably never heard of. My Boyfriend’s Back (1.
Touchstone Pictures. Bob Balaban directed one of the scariest horror comedies in history, but that was Parents, back in 1. In the 1. 99. 0s the Close Encounters of the Third Kind co- star returned to the director’s chair for a goofier but still very likable zombie rom- com, about a teen who asks the hottest girl in school to the prom just before he dies. The thing is, when she says yes, out of pity, he refuses to stay dead. Can he still be the good- natured John Hughes underdog when he needs to eat his fellow classmates to survive?
Boasting an eccentric sense of humor and weird early performances by Matthew Mc. Conaughey and Philip Seymour Hoffman, My Boyfriend’s Back is an oddball treat. Giggles (1. 99. 2)Universal Pictures. Dr. Giggles was marketed like it was going to be the next great slasher franchise, but nobody saw the danged thing. That’s a pity, because they probably would have liked it just fine.
Larry Drake plays a homicidal doctor who metes out violence on his patients while uncontrollably giggling to himself, in a performance that’s campy, but creepy nevertheless. It may not have broken the mold, and it may not have broken into the public consciousness, but it’s gradually finding a cult audience who recognize that it’s one of the most underrated late- era slashers. Thinner (1. 99. 6)Paramount Pictures. Based on a novel by Stephen King, published under his pseudonym “Richard Bachman,” Thinner is a cynical morality tale that probably would have made for a classic Tales from the Crypt episode. As a movie it’s a little longer than it needs to be, but it’s engagingly directed by Tom Holland (Fright Night) and features one of Robert John Burke’s best performances. Burke plays an obese lawyer who uses his political connections to avoid a prison sentence after he accidentally kills a gypsy with his car.
The gypsy’s husband curses him to lose weight, uncontrollably, until he dies. It’s a solid “be careful what you wish for” nightmare, with a vicious anti- moral streak. Nobody wants to become a better person in Thinner. They’ll do damn near anything to save themselves. Alien: Resurrection (1. Century Fox. Alien: Resurrection is not a great movie, but it’s an extremely interesting one, and the first Alien sequel to truly revel in the perverse psychosexual imagery that H.
R. Giger originally envisioned for the series way back in 1. Ripley, played by a strong and sensual Sigourney Weaver, has been cloned in the future but her DNA has been mingled with the alien xenomorphs she died trying to exterminate in the first place. The action scenes are a mess and the supporting cast is too kooky for their own good, but when Alien: Resurrection focuses on the strange new relationship between Ripley and her enemy – closer than ever, both familial and sexual – it’s a twisted and oddly enjoyable entry in the franchise.
Bad Moon (1. 99. 6)Warner Bros. Bad Moon might have been more popular if the title was more honest.
Let’s face it: Eric Red’s under- appreciated thriller should have been called Lassie vs. The Wolfman. A single mom invites her estranged brother back home, but he’s not just distant, he’s cursed, and only the family dog knows that good ol’ Uncle Ted (played particularly well by Michael Par. Sure enough, their faithful pooch gets blamed for all the maulings, and eventually there’s a scene where the little boy screams as the Humane Society drags the dog away, while the dog barks its head off trying to warn his ungrateful masters of the danger in their midst. The special effects aren’t great – in fact, sometimes they’re just terrible – but Bad Moon still knows how to hit you in the gut. Anaconda (1. 99. 7)Columbia Pictures. Good old- fashioned monster movie nonsense.
A documentary film crew treks their way through the Amazon and runs across a Paraguayan trapper played, with absolute scenery- chewing glee, by Jon Voight. He tricks them into helping him hunt a rare and gigantic anaconda, a quest which eventually gets practically everybody killed. A silly premise, filmed well, featuring an unusually great ensemble cast that includes Jennifer Lopez, Owen Wilson, Ice Cube, Danny Trejo and Eric Stoltz. Wishmaster (1. 99. Live Entertainment. An unironic monster movie released in the height of the post- Scream irony boom, it is perhaps no surprise that Wishmaster didn’t find an enormous audience.
But they missed out. This clever supernatural thriller, directed by makeup effects maestro Robert Kurtzman, stars Andrew Divoff as an ageless djinn who has unlimited power, but he can’t use it unless somebody else makes a wish. So Wishmaster is full of amusing wordplay – one woman wishes she could be beautiful forever, so the djinn turns her into a mannequin, etc. It spawned three straight- to- video sequels, but only the first one, Wishmaster 2: Evil Never Dies, is also worth seeking out. Idle Hands (1. 99. Columbia Pictures. Do you remember that scene from Evil Dead II where Bruce Campbell’s hand became possessed and tried to kill him?
Idle Hands is that scene, but as an entire movie. It works better than you might think.
Devon Sawa plays a pothead who’s so slothful that his hand literally becomes the devil’s plaything. His hand kills his best friends, Seth Green (Robot Chicken) and Elden Henson (Daredevil), but it’s cool. They come back as zombies to help him find a way out of the curse.
Very funny stuff from prolific TV director Rodman Flender (Scream: The Series). House on Haunted Hill (1.
Warner Bros. It’s no coincidence that the remake of William Castle’s beloved fright flick opens at an amusement park. After all, this all- star spook house thriller works more like a carnival ride than a movie. Geoffrey Rush hams it up as a millionaire who invites a group of weirdos to spend the night in – gasp!
But to everybody’s surprise, the place really is haunted, and soon they’re all backstabbing each other to survive. House on Haunted Hill is the kind of madcap fright flick that’s perfect for slumber parties. The Devil’s Advocate (1.
Warner Bros. And to think, Al Pacino used to be considered a pretty subtle actor. But by the 1. 99.
The Godfather and Serpico was going WAY over the top in genre flicks like Dick Tracy and, more to the point, The Devil’s Advocate, playing Lucifer himself as a wealthy and oversexed head of a prestigious New York law firm.
