My Top 30 “Horror” Movies From 2000-2009


Since we’re rapidly closing in on 2010 I thought I’d take this opportunity to run down my Top 30 list of what I felt were the best “horror” movies from 2000-2009 (plus a few honorable mentions). I say “horror” in quotes because some of these are not just straight up horror as most people would know it as. There are some that involve comedy and drama and sometimes more “thriller” aspects as opposed to horror, but I still consider them to be mostly horror by nature. Most of these are pretty mainstream movies, but there are a handful of smaller productions. So lets get to it.
