Re: Any GOOD new horror movies?

I liked Toad Road, Haunter, Maniac and Insidious 2 from last year.

Re: Any GOOD new horror movies?

It's hard to say, the past couple years haven't been the best for the horror genre! Some of my favorites that have come out recently are:

We Are What We Are
Jug Face
You're Next
American Mary
Mama
Under the Bed
Byzantium
Among Friends

sinister

Re: Any GOOD new horror movies?

Thank you.

Will check them out!

Re: Any GOOD new horror movies?

V/H/S is an anthology horror film worth checking out, DM. Some of the stories are much weaker than others (as it often happens in anthology flicks), but the first story of the film alone makes it worth watching, IMO.

Re: Any GOOD new horror movies?

I actually thought VHS 2 was better than the first

Re: Any GOOD new horror movies?

^ I haven't yet seen V/H/S 2, but will definitely be checking it out when I can. What did you like about the sequel, Ash?

Re: Any GOOD new horror movies?

I absolutely loved Byzantium.  Other good ones lately were jug face and we are what we are.  If you are in the mood for something a little different try Sightseers.

movie was a little more streamlined than the first one. the individual segments are just more entertaining, I think, than the first one

Re: Any GOOD new horror movies?

^ Cool, man. I'm looking forward to checking it out.

Re: Any GOOD new horror movies?

I don't think it has been a particularly weak couple of years for horror, you just have to do a bit of digging to find the good ones.  The best of the last few years in my opinion are

The Seasoning House (2012)
American Mary (2012)
Bedevilled (2010)
Dark Touch (2013)
Red, White and Blue (2010)
Terrorities aka Checkpoint (2010)
Byzantium (2013)
Rare Exports (2010)
Rec 3 (2012)
Sleep Tight (2012)
I Saw The Devil (2010)
Stoker (2013)
'Safe Haven' segment in VHS 2 and last segment in VHS 1
Pacific Rim (2013)
Maniac (2013)
We Are What We Are (2013)
Big Bad Wolves (2013)
Frankenstein's Army (2013)
The Squad (2011)
Red State (2011)
Hobo With A Shotgun (2011)
The Woman (2011)

Some indie ones I was impressed with

Stakeland (2010)
Contracted (2013)
Undocumented (2011)
Grave Encounters (2011)
Cassadaga (2011)
Dread (2009)

Good horror docs

American Scream (2013)
Rewind This (2013)
Cropsey (2010)
Machete Maidens Unleashed (2010)
American Grindhouse (2010)
Video nasties: Moral Panic, Censorship and Videotape (2010) - Also look out for the upcoming follow up Doc; Draconian Days.

its worth checking out VHS 2 for The Segment Safe Haven by Gareth Evans alone. Head above any of the other segments in the two films and the only one I found truly effective as a horror film.

Hadn't heard of this, but just looked it up.  Sounds fun.  Thanks for the heads up!

My favourite segment was the mountain bikers and the zombies.  Pretty sure they used a go pro on top of the helmet like most mountain bikers do.  So I felt like I was watching just a regular trail video until the zombies showed up. Loved it!

"prisoners" isn't a horror movie but has a zodiac vibe to it. Hugh Jackman's best performance outside of x-men

That was my favorite as well very neat the way they did it, I honestly wasn't really expecting that. Loved it! Overall I liked V/H/S 2 better than the first.
