David Cronenberg makes our list for a second time with his 1981 Canadian Sci-Fi horror film that starred Stephen Lack and Jennifer O’Neill. Scanners is the story of a group of people who are psychics who have the power to not only control people but also inflict unbelievable pain on others.
Black Christmas 1974
Bob Clark directed the 70′s classic Black Christmas which is considered by many to be the first slasher film and happens to be based around a true story. The film was inspired by a slew of murders at Christmas time that were happening in Quebec Canada. Clark went on to produce a remake in 2006 which was a pretty solid retelling.
Jack Brooks Monster Slayer
Canadian horror comedy Jack Brooks Monster Slayer is one of the truly great monster movies. The film which stars Robert Englund and is the story of a plumber who takes on the things that go bump in the night.
Cube is one of the few truly terrifying sci-fi horror films I have seen. If you have a fear of confined spaces and are not a fan of mind bending puzzles that result in dismemberment and death then CUBE will terrify you. Directed by Vincenzo Natali it was the first successful film released by the Canadian Film Centre.
Dawn of the Dead 2004
George A Romero’s Dawn of the Dead is one of the greatest zombie films of all time. It is secondly only to his other master piece Night of the living Dead. As much as we love to hate on remakes you simply can not deny that Zack Snyder’s remake of Dawn of the Dead which shot in Toronto Canada and starred Canadian sweet heart Sarah Polley is a truly fantastic re-imagining of the original classic.
