#7) The Woman
I have been wanting to see Lucky McGee’s The Woman for a very long time and thanks to BountyFilms I was finally able to stream it online in HD. Jack Ketchum is one of my favorite writers and this film much like the others based on his work is a well polished master piece.
Unlike Stephen King who’s movies are at best hit and miss every single film adaptation of a Jack Ketchum book that I have seen is top notch material. All of them could very easily make a Top 10 Horror Movie list and The Woman is no different. It is a brutal and poignant look at the destruction of a family, relationships and the evil that a plain face can hide.
#6) Troll Hunter
I as a rule am not a fan of the now over done found footage genre. I am to this day a huge fan of the Blair Witch Project but otherwise I have found very few films that have captured that same magic. Troll Hunter is however that movie.
When I first heard the concept I was pretty shocked. How do you effectively do a found footage movie about a troll hunter? Can you get viewers to suspend belief and pull them into a movie about a troll hunter? The answer is yes. Troll Hunter is not only one of the best found footage horror movies ever made its also one of the best horror films of 2011 without a shadow of doubt
Wrecked seems to have gotten very little love from film fans and I am quite dissapointed by that. I found this thriller starring Adrien Brody to be a powerful tale of corruption, survival and unravelling the truth. Its the quintesential who dun it with a very small cast, a powerful story and is in my view one of the few great thrillers since Adam Green’s Spiral. If you like a good thriller and can tolerate a slower pace Wrecked is the movie for you.
