15 Must Watch Horror Films Of The 2000s | Haider Rifaat
Review: I watched this film with great anticipation and it turned out to be a great remake of the original film. Chloe Grace Moretz gave a stellar performance as Carrie White and Julianne Moore did her role justice. Don’t miss out on this one!
14. The Hills Have Eyes
Review: Although the film turned out to be gorier than I had expected, The Hills Have Eyes delivered enough chills till the end of the film. The perfect setting and ambience of the movie has earned it this spot!
13. Sorority Row
Review: A good watch overall! The acting was good although the plot seemed slightly out of place. The movie seemed dull and repetitive given its weak storyline. But all in all, it was entertaining.
12. The Grudge
Review: In terms of horror, The Grudge is a winner! This movie had truly moved me as a viewer and revolutionized the horror genre given its unique plot and innovation. The acting was average, but Gellar did her character justice.
11. Scream (Series)
Review: Although Scream and Scream 2 were released in the late ’90s, I had to mention all Scream (series) films as they were fun to watch, even alone! Wes Craven did a fine job with the direction. These movies never seem to disappoint a horror fan!
Review: Probably one of the best horror films out there! Although, the movie was produced on a low budget, the director(s) and the producer(s) of the film made it seem like a proper motion picture. P2 should be on everyone’s ‘must watch’ film list.
Review: This film was classy! Vacancy delivered more chills than I had anticipated. The entire plot was cleverly devised. Kate Beckinsale was great in her role. Moreover, the movie was well directed and written.
8. I Know What You Did Last Summer
Review: A great teen-horror film. The climax scenes pop up out of the blue; the movie keeps the viewers begging for more! Gellar yet again impressed me with her acting talent. She knows how to scream with soul! Without a doubt, her character was well written.
7. When A Stranger Calls
Review: Initially, the film was thrilling when I saw it for the first time, but after reading raving reviews of the original film, the 2006 remake turned out to be bland in clash with the original. A must watch for all the horror fanatics out there. I assure you that this film will not disappoint you!
Review: Isabelle Fuhrman’s acting was flawless in this movie given that she was a young girl when recruited for the project (goodness gracious!). How can somebody act so brilliantly and be just ten years old? Orphan was unbelievably thrilling! The film had a unique concept that kept me hanging until the end.
5. House Of Wax
Review: What a movie this turned out to be! It will remain one of my all-time favorite horror films. Jaune-Collet Serra did a fine job on this project. God, they sure wasted a lot of wax in this film! Oh well, it was all for our entertainment. Wink.
4. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Review: This film made me jump! It was gory and thrilling. One of the best horror films in my humble opinion. TCM is a ride you cannot miss! For sure, Jessica Biel owned her character in the film and delivered a believable performance.
3. Black Christmas
Review: Another Christmas-horror film! I came across this movie’s plot on IMDB and it turned out to be a great horror flick. The background music and plot were two solid aspects that made this film more interesting.
2. Wrong Turn
Review: What is better than having Eliza Dushku in a horror film? Nothing is! Wrong Turn is one of those rare, classic films of the modern generation. Every time I watch this movie, it makes me jump! This film is worthy of this spot, no questions asked.
1. 30 Days Of Night
Review: Perhaps the best horror film of the last fifteen years. It is definitely the winner of this list. 30 Days of Night was a breathtaking horror movie that introduced a riveting concept about vampires. It is among those few horror films shot at one of my favorite locations, Barrow, Alaska.
