Films from the future

Well, "from" the future cos somehow I still live in 1988! Argh. And I remember how I used to look forward to 1999 wondering whether the moon would really disappear from its orbit around the Earth - and if we would have proper space ships then. Obviously none of that happened. The new shiny futuristic world that most sci-fi authors imagined we would have just never happened. We still live in the same crappy dirty old world. I'd say it's even gone from crappy to worse. Oh well. At least we still have the moon to look at at night time (unless you live in smog filled places).

Anyway, I watch all kinds of old cinema from many countries so I often miss out on new American (and other Anglo/Euro) horror films but I'd like to rectify that. But it'll take a while obviously. Over on Dvdmanicas there's been two ongoing threads where the members post their favourite POST 2000 HORROR FILMS and I've simply collected all titles into one list.

If any of you have UBER FAVES that you think I should start with please do make a comment. Films you can't live without! (NB: some obvious films are missing from the list! I decided not to include the ones I've already got). Feel free to list new horror films that aren't on the list if you think they deserve it (i.e. they have to be among your faves - it's not enough they are new!). Cheers.

And yes, I should have included the ones I've already got cos you don't know which ones they are. Doh!

  2. My gawd! I thought there'd be like 20-25 new good horror movies I could buy and that would be it. >_<

  3. Session 9 is a brilliant movie, very much in the Jacob's Ladder/Silent Hill vein.

    And I actually liked Mirrors 2 better than the first one! :)

  4. Sjovt som filmskabere og forfattere altid har overvurderet den teknologiske udvikling. Vi var F.eks. ikke i nærheden af bemandede rejser til Jupiter i 2001.

  5. Hey Magnus!

    Thanks. Session 9 is definitely one I want to check out. I've never watched any of the US Mirrors films but I watched the original Korean film (it's on the Asian Vision label).

    @Henrik; Næh, det var vi jo så ikke lige, hah! Endsige nær en kæmpebase på Månen i 1999.
