Today I perused Film.com’s Top 5 Horror Movies of 2009 list out of curiosity. I had a feeling Paranormal Activity would be on it, but what else would make the list? I honestly couldn’t remember all that had come out.
They broke it down like this:
- My Bloody Valentine 3D
- Drag Me to Hell
- The Last House on the Left
- Paranormal Activity
Why people liked Drag Me to Hell I don’t understand. It’s the first movie in a long time I’ve turned off. (I shut it down after the old lady is hiding in the back of the girl’s car after she gets off work and they have an absolutely ridiculous cat fight –where the old lady almost wins! It was absurd. ABSURD! I can’t emphasize that enough. Yet, I’m in the minority. Every one else claims if I’d kept watching I would have liked it. Doubtful. I couldn’t buy that part and when I can’t suspend my disbelief for a movie anymore, well…that does it for me.)
I haven’t seen any of the others. They’re all in my Netflix queue though waiting to be delivered.
And then there’s my personal fave because of the zombie aspect: Zombieland. It got an honorable mention on Film.com’s list. It had it’s rough spots too, but overall the funny outweighed the flaws and kept me amused. Glad it made the reviewer’s list, even as an HM.
