We are in 2011. It’s been a decade of the new millennium and as Mayan prophecies we have one year and we cracked. In this optimistic note I wanted to start with a top of the best horror movies of the past decade. Of course, I spent hours thinking about what movies to choose and my ranking is purely subjective. Let’s see the best 10 horror movies in my opinion:
10. The Others
The others is the story of a woman who remains without her husband in the aftermath of World War II and she’s forced to grow her two children’s. The house is isolated and dark living as children suffer from a strange disease and can not stand in the light. Grace was obsessed with one rule: any door will not be open before the other is closed. It employs three strange servants, each more strange than the other, but who had worked there before Grace to buy the house. The silence is shattered by the discovery of the house that can be strange.
09. American Psycho
Patrick Bateman is a maniac killer who works at the New York Stock Exchange. The reasons for its crimes are discussed, among which may include excessive envy on his colleagues, material obsession, and pure hatred or maybe just complete madness. His dementia increases during the film, he killing at least 20 people in this process, including top-models, homeless people, colleagues, friends or anyone who stands in his way. The only person whom has an ounce of kindness is his secretary, Jean, but ultimately can not refrain and feel the need to kill her. Patrick often can not achieve if the facts are real or just belonging to his problems caused by psychotic delusion.
Mike Enslin needs to show that there is nothing beyond here and now. That it can exists life after death, that is no God, that is no second chance, or maybe yes? The movie Room 1408 is modified from a horrifying novel 1408 written by the tension master, Stephen King. But after a series of bestsellers bring into disrepute the paranormal events that had taken place in the haunted houses and graveyards around the world, he has no proof of life after death.
