A Rundown of the 13 Best, Most Recent Horror Movies I’ve Seen
[13 of 13]

The horror in Midnight Meat Train can be found just as much in Leon’s descent into obsession and the gradual fraying of his relationship with Maya, as it can in the spectacularly over-the-top gore, delivered on-screen by a silently scowling Vinnie Jones, who plays the butcher Mahogany.

Read the entire review here.

Parting shot: Well, that’s it for this year’s list. Let’s see what the next dozen months have to offer horrorwise, so we can see how those titles will impact 2009’s rundown.
Happy Halloween!

you're welcome. :)
and as i mentioned in my review, we barker fans have much to look forward to: adaptations of "dread," "pig blood blues," the framing short stories of "books of blood" (the film simply titled "book of blood"), and "the madonna."

this is too much clivey goodness to contain. :) if they adapt imajica, i'd have to brace my tender heart.. all too much, all too much. :)

for my part, i'd really love to see "the thief of always" finally hit the big screen...

right there you are, too. holiday house, rendered properly onscreen will surely be a visual feast.
