Four lists of the top ten best genre horror films since 2000. Dark Discussions continues their second part of their four way round table of the best movies beginning with the millennium going forward. Remakes and re-imaginings such as Zack Snyder’s Dawn of the Dead make the list as well as a few Korean and French films. Vampires appear in a few films as do mutants from the underground. Stephen King showed up with The Mist in part one, but does he appear again? Torture porn standards like Hostel and The Devil’s Rejects lead a wave of an interesting subgenre. The nations of Norway, Sweden, Australia, the United Kingdom, and the US join Korea and France. And could an interesting film from an unlikely place like Serbia be listed?
With a wide range of films including directing legends such as Martin Scorsese and Sam Raimi appearing alongside newer sensations like Eli Roth, Edgar Wright, and Christopher Smith, you can imagine the list is as diverse and wide ranging as all the horror subgenres combined.
Wrapping up we discuss some of our top genre directors the past twelve years and where they stack up against others and the future. We also list some of the alternate films that just missed making the lists. So listeners, get ready with pen and paper and start writing down a group of films that you should go out and search for to give you a fright tonight … or for a future Halloween spectacular.
