Movies to Die For: The Tens

Here we are, my little ghouls, at the end of our trip down Elm Street.  I don't want to say much today, maybe you can reflect on the themes we've discussed and give the last six years of terror its own voice.  I for one am excited to see a return to light-hearted romps through the graveyard while still having hard-hitting, blood curdling fear at my fingertips.  Now, let's take a look at our last 27 titles.

 

We Are What We Are – 2010
Black Swan – 2010
I Saw the Devil – 2010 (This Korean crime thriller is intense, even for revenge films…)
Tucker & Dale vs. Evil – 2010 (Whether you’re a fan of Alan Tudyk, Tyler Labine, or horror films, there’s something in this for you, also this might be suitable for a wider adult audience)
Stake Land – 2010
Kill List – 2011
The Woman – 2011
Absentia – 2011
Livide – 2011 (One of the most beautiful French horror films I’ve seen) Beyond the Black Rainbow – 2011 (so visually stunning)
Snowtown – 2012
Maniac – 2012
Excision – 2012
American Mary – 2012 (from the Twisted Twins, Jen and Sylvia Soska, plenty of camp, gore and fun, some body horror so don’t tell me I didn’t warn you)
The Conjuring – 2013
Oculus - 2013
Byzantium – 2013
You’re Next – 2013
The Sacrament – 2013 (Although I usually hate found footage movies, this is an exception.)
Goodnight, Mommy – 2014 (one of the most unique facets of this stellar Austrian film is its basis in capgras syndrome)
It Follows – 2014
Life After Beth – 2014
A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night – 2014
Starry Eyes – 2014 (cults and the dangers of stardom make for a pretty great film)
Crimson Peak – 2015 (Guillermo Del Toro slays me. I happen to think this is big budget horror done extremely well)
The Visit – 2015 (M. Night Shyamalan will always have a place in my heart)
31 – 2016 (I LOVED this film. Like loved, loved it. I can’t wait to see the director’s cut)

I know we've reached the end, but don't scream my darlings! I've got more Halloween tricks and treats for you this month, I promise. Cross my heart and hope to DIE.  While you're waiting patiently, take a look at the trailer for Rob Zombie's 31!
