Dr AC's 2009 Horror Movie Round Up


Howdy troops,

After much deliberation, here's my assessment of the year that was. All of the films listed below were encountered for the first time from January 1 to December 31, 2009 (i.e. no repeat viewings were eligible). To accommodate and acknowledge as many films as possible, I've broken them down into various categories in alphabetical order, with my top pick denoted with an asterisk.

As always, feel free to toss in your two cents worth - we'll make sure you get some change back. Thanks for the past year of rapping and chatting - looking forward to more of the same in 2010!

great list, specially the collector and the dance with undead, excellent movies to pass a good time with friends or couple, but you have to pick up another movies from this year like Zombieland, viagra online the return, saw V and others.
