With the post and movie title, I think you get the gist of where this post is going, well, more like I think you know where YOU are going...and that's to check out my review of Drag Me to Hell over at Paracinema! Well, you don't have to if you don't want to, but I would probably shed an Indian tear as you toss my heart to the ground like useless liter. Just saying.
Some quick housekeeping first, Shock Till You Drop just posted their Shock's Top 25 Horror Films of the Decade and it's a pretty interesting list of the best horror films of the decade. It's a very solid line up of the decades finest, with only a few movies that could be dropped and swapped for me. Off the top of my head, I would liked to have seen Audition or Martyrs on this list and I could do without Hannibal and I would also rather see Haute Tension over Aja's The Hills Have Eyes too. While Haute Tension has a faulty ending, it is a fantastic Slasher film and one of the most tense horror movies of the decade, and while Hills was decent, it just wasn't as good in my opinion.
Still, that is my opinion and that's what opinions are for, to be your own. I was very happy to see films like May, Ginger Snaps, and The Devils Backbone make the cut as I think those are great horror movies, but I'm a little surprised that Session 9 is on there. Not a perfect movie, but for anyone that has seen it, you know that film may have one of the best locations of any horror flick of this decade with the Danvers state mental asylum in Massachusetts. Represent! A solid list from some very knowledgeable horror fans, one of whom is a good friend to CNAMB, so head over there and see how the list stacks up to your own.
Lastly, the wonderful people behind All Things Horror have a new weekly segment titled The Sunday Morning DIE-gest,where they spotlight a few of their favorite horror blogs each week. To my surprise, they were kind enough to mention CNAMB, so head over there and see what fun horror shenanigans they are up to and check out what they had to say about the crud posted on here.
Okay, now you are free to go to Paracinema and check out my late to the party review of Sam Raimi's most recent foray into horror, Drag Me to Hell. Hope you enjoy!
