# 10 28 Days Later

It all started when a deadly virus swept the human population. Bike courier Jim (Cillian Murphy) wakes up in a hospital bed after 28 days in coma. For a moment there, it seems like he is the only man living on the face of the Earth. He isn’t alone however. London has been evacuated after the virus outbreak which turns its victims into mindless zombies. There are others who are not affected as well and they all team up to find other survivors.

Personally I don’t believe that it is as epic as most people did but still it’s a reasonably good zombie movie. Waking up to a zombie apocalypse is a scary thought and the film is successful in conveying that feeling to the audience.

 

#9 The Others

The Others, starring Nicole Kidman as grace is a religious mother with two daughters who has moved with her family to a mansion, while waiting for her husband from world war 2.

It is a well-made creepy and scary movie blended with period drama. The plot is so intense, that it leaves a lasting effect. There aren’t too many movies like this around, which makes it truly stand out.

 

#8 The Mist

The Mist is a horror novel written by the American author Stephen King. A small town in Maine is suddenly enveloped by an unusual mist that conceals otherwordly monsters.

At first I wasn’t impressed with the movie but as the story unfolds I find myself entwined with the story. It’s not your typical horror movie with crazy serial killer. It’s very thought provoking because as you watch the film you yourself will ask “What will I do if I were in their shoes?”.

 

#7 Bram Stoker’s Dracula

Bram Stoker’s Dracula is an American Horror film directed and produced by Francis Ford Coppola, based on the novel Dracula by Bram Stoker.

The story started when Vlad Dracula (Gary Oldman) renounces God after learning that his wife had committed suicide when she received a false report of his death.
Mina (Winona Ryder), Professor Van Helsing (Anthony Hopkins) and Jonathan’s (Keannu Reeves) adventure now begins. As they encounter vampires, were-wolves and other
unworldly creatures.

Even if the film is quite old and doesn’t have superb special effects, the plot will surely keep audiences captivated, as Count Dracula enticed Mina in the film.

 

#6 Saw

Saw film revolves around a kidnapped victim who is given an instruction explaining how to escape a gruesome death. The Jigsaw killer is the mastermind of the “games” that he intricately planned to have the victims play.

“Saw’ got its name from the first movie, the victims (Adam a photographer and Lawrence an oncologist) are chained at the ankles to pipes, Adam finds a bag containing two hacksaws which they use to try cutting through the chains. Adam breaks his and Lawrence realizes that the saws are actually meant for their feet.

Saw 3 is the most popular of the series if you are guessing which sequel to watch first.

 

#5 Child’s Play

Child’s Play is a cheerfully energetic horror film. The film opens when a doll has been possessed by the mind and the soul of a mass murderer who studied voodoo from a  black magician. Chucky, the sinister doll is behind the killings and unexplained murders.

Of all the Child’s Play sequel it seems like the latest sequel is by far the most popular, Curse of Chucky. Child’s Play 3 is the least popular earning only $20,560,255 worldwide.

 

#4 Orphan

The movie Orphan revolves around the story of a family that adopted a nine year old russian kid named Esther (Isabelle Fuhrman). Behind the sweet innocent veil she is wearing, hides a deranged, creepy girl.

It can be concluded that Esther is just a little spoiled brat that gets what she wants, even if it means killing them.

Orphan is a chilling movie and I find the mind games very intriguing. The movie has an awesome twist at the end that is very unpredictable.

 

#3 I am Legend

I am Legend is not faithful to the book it got its name from, but I don’t care. It’s a totally different media anyway. Even if Robert Neville (Will Smith) is the only man left living in the center of New York city, he is such a powerful actor that he alone made the film very engaging.

And although the special effects is substandard, the film compensates with a level of emotional depth and awe-inspiring plot.

 

#2 The Crow

The Crow is based on a comic book by the same name, It stars Brandon Lee playing as Eric Draven. The story begins when a group of thugs murdered him and his fiance.

After a year he was resurrected by a crow that also acts as his guide showing him the way.

The Crow is a straight up revenge film. It’s gothic, dark and one of the best comic book adaptation ever made. It is a must see this Halloween season and I am certain
you will not get disappointed.

 

#1 The Sixth Sense

The Sixth Sense is not a gruesome movie, unlike the other films we have in our list. The film revolves around Cole Sear’s (Haley Joel Osment) psychic powers to see dead people around him. He is constantly teriffied and he felt that he can only share his secret to Dr. Malcolm Crowe (Bruce Willis) who is also a child psychologist.

However as the doctor probes into Cole’s strange power, instead of finding an answer, he is confronted with more questions.

Some critics argue that the pace of the plot is very slow and they are compelled to keep themselves awake until the movie ends. This might be true to some of the scenes, however the ending gives us an unexpected twist. Over all the movie is thought-provoking, The Sixth Sense is scary and smart, taking the number one spot in my
list.

World War Z

World War Z

The opening scene sets temple well and this is sure for an interesting ride.

The film has a look that we know and love from other titles and the trailer points at story lines we can guess at.

What will be critical in World War Z is how it all hangs together and what will set this movie as a seminal work.

The genre is one which is still building a huge fan base, and I don’t think many people saw this coming with Brad Pitt as the star.
