A Rundown of the 13 Best Horror Movies I’ve Seen in the Past Year
[10 of 13]
DEAD SET (October 2008)

[Dead Set is] a thrilling and gory look at the collision of catastrophe and entertainment, where the idea of reality television as goldfish bowl is taken to its bleakest extreme.

Read the entire review here.

Parting shot: Yes, this initially burst onto the scene as a 5 episode TV series, but, a) there was a feature-length cut subsequently aired, which joined the episodes into one unholy union, and so Dead Set does technically exist as a feature; b) it is available on DVD, so you can watch all 5 episodes consecutively, as if it were a movie; and c) this is a hell of a lot better than many a zombie movie lurching out there in the multiplex wilds.
