Eli Roth’s HOSTEL was way over billed as the most violent film ever made and mainstream press started tossing around TORTURE PORN like crazy. Hostel is a good film packed with plenty of gore and carnage and is well worth checking out but the focus really is on the violence and not so much the story which admittedly is a unique and well thought out one. HOSTEL is also the first major DVD that our site had the quote on the cover for. So that alone should make it one of the best of the 21st century
The Devils Rejects: Rob Zombie as a director made me groan initially but I have to admit he did deliver with not just Devils Rejects but the remake of Halloween as well. The Devils rejects sees a local sherriff going toe to toe with a sadistic and murderous family. Packed with violence, two dimensional characters and a pile of genre stars The Devils Rejects is fast moving, extremely gruesome and a truly fantastic tale of family, friends and brutality.
You can not do a list of the top films of the 21st Century and not include Cloverfield. This movie was JJ Abrams masterpiece of viral marketing. It tells the story of a group of friends in New York who must survive an unknown monster attack. Shot from a shaky cam view the film made me seasick but admittedly was the most innovative monster movie made since GODZILLA.
Last and by no means least on the list of epic horror movies everyone should see from the 21st century is FEAST. The project was made as part of Project Greenlight and is hands down one of the bets mid-budget horror films ever made. It tells the story of a small town bar set upon by monsters forcing the bar hoppers to band together to fight off the monstrous creatures. Featuring great one liners, an awesome hero moment andatalented cast of b-movie actors its a gruesome and gorey horror comedy that every single horror fan should own… or stop calling themselves a horror fan.
