If there is one thing we try really hard to do its include all of you in the site and the community as much as possible. Over the last week I have been asking our Horror Facebook Community which is nearly 14,000 strong what your favorite horror movies of 2011 are.
After giving everyone ample time to vote I took 2 hours and put everyones votes into a spreadsheet and have made a Top Horror Films of 2011 list, with the caveat of course that the year is very much not over and some really great horror films are still getting ready to hit theatres and DVD. So if your wondering what you should be watching use this list as a starting point. The list below includes DVD releases where the film had a small theatrical run. It is also worth noting that the first film had over 40% of the votes and the next three easily had 8% of the vote each.
#15 ) Hobo With a Shotgun:
Grindhouse is the newest flavor of the week and Hobo With a Shotgun has all the ingredients in spades. A homeless vigilante blows away crooked cops, pedophile Santas, and other scumbags with his trusty pump-action shotgun.
#14 ) Fright Night 3D:
In the remake of the 80’s vampire classic a teenager suspects that his new neighbor is a vampire. This film stars Colin Farrell and has gotten surprisingly quite good feedback from horror fans making it no surprise you all voted it #14.
#13 ) The Rite:
An American seminary student travels to Italy to take an exorcism course. This supernatural tale which stars the incredibly talented Anthony Hopkins is definitely no exorcist but its still a very good direct to DVD title. It also is based on a true story which makes it even creepier.
#12 ) Yellow Brick Road:
I am surprised this one made the list but clearly some of you really liked it. Yellow Brick Road is the tale of a small town thats population completely dissapeared in the 40’s. The movie revolves around a group of investigators who go to the town to try and unravel what happened to the citizens of Friar.
#11 ) Tucker & Dale vs Evil:
If you liked Shaun of the Dead its a safe bet you will want to checkout Tucker & Dale vs Evil. Tucker & Dale are on vacation at their dilapidated mountain cabin when they are attacked by a group of preppy college kids.
#10 ) Attack the Block:
Attack the Block is about a teen gang in South London who defend their block from an alien invasion. This is easily one of my favorite movies of 2011 and one of the best monster movies I have seen since Toby Wilkins SPLINTER
