Thereís been a few exceptions though, I like some of Mike Flanaganís films, personally I think itís ridiculous that Netflix wonít allow him to release Hush on disc, because I thought it was brilliant, as was Geraldís Game and his take on Haunting of Hill House

There are good and bad horror films from every decade. It just sometimes seems that the bad outweigh the good in this day and age what with advertising and social media shoving the next 'scariest film ever' down your throat 24 hours a day, coupled with the fact that anybody with an smartphone and some free editing software can make a film nowadays.

Here's a list I made of my favourite horror-ish films from 2000 onwards. It probably needs and update but there's plenty of great stuff on there.

Some damned good films there, b_e, that i'd easily say are just as good as those made in the 60's, 70's or 80's.

One or two more recent ones would probably make it as well - The Girl With All the Gifts for example.

There are too many horror movies now, very bland stuff that doesnt have re watch potential, i must have watched stuff like Dawn of the Dead, Elm Street, Re Animator numerous times on vhs but today's stuff barely gets a second watch.

Quote, As usual my definition of 'horror' may be questionable to some.
True we all define films different for different reasons , but I wouldn't put Battle Royal as horror ,
John dies in the end great talk about giving the ending away, and if he doesn't die then is that a case for trading standards false description act

I personally prefer 2.0 mono tracks where it comes out of both front speakers. There's also quite an odd thing where a subtitle reading Cat O Nine Tails is on screen when the English 'Cat O Nine Tails' film title comes up during the credits (hope that makes sense). I avoid that by completely turning off the optional translation subtitles whilst film is playing - Italian text on things like drawers in the institute is fairly easy to understand, I personally don't need those subs and just find them quite a bit distracting. Hope that helps.
Bought said disc and you were right on all points you made although I'll keep the original arrow blu for the pretty pictures on the cover. I know it's been mentioned but when does the arrow sale end????
