Five recent horror dvd´s : experts needed!!

Despite being a massive horror movie fan, I've got to admit that in the last three years I've only watch the more obvious mainstream films.

So ... I am wondering if someone can point me in the direction of what they think are the 5 horror essential purchases of the last three years ( Not re-released classics ).

Any advice is really apreciated.

Thanks

Edgler

I'd go with:

Wrong Turn
Identity
Final Destination 1 & 2
and Freddy vs Jason

all good fun!

I was debating whether or not Identity was a horror film, but demonio beat me to it!

Identity
Red Dragon
Blair Witch Project

if you are only looking for films released in the last 3 years....the list would be pretty weak. I'll throw in some "first time on dvd" or other films getting proper treatment. for further tips...see the horror titles in my library.

Nonhosonno-Dario Argento import-known as a full-screen release only in the US as Sleepless.

Dead and Buried-Blue Underground

Raw Meat-finally on dvd!

The Prowler-an under-rated slasher on BU



28 Days Later-I loved it.

Spider-David Cronenberg...not really horror, but somewhat disturbing. many people did not like this effort, but I love it.

I agree with Session 9. Definitely the best horror movie of the last three years.

Heres 6

Cabin Fever because of all the fricken homages, and the great commentaries

Wrong turn just a fun 'monster' movie

28 Days Later only recent zombie movie of any worth

Freddy vs Jason because its friggin Freddy vs Jason

Jeepers Creepers because it's the start of a new franchise.

Session 9, has such a great feeling

It wasn't?!? Well, I wouldn't recommend it to the poor soul who started this wonderful thread.

Freddy vs. Jason is a lot of fun if you liked them growing up. I haven't seen most of the others listed so it's a nice list of movies for me to pick up soon. Thanks!

I hate to say it, but a crapton of the 'horror' movies listed in this thread are some of the worst movies i've ever seen.

28 Days Later- great movie, loved how it was shot, nice little tributes to film makers like Romero.

Red Dragon- not as good as manhunter, but a pretty damn good remake, I think Ralph Finnes was a little better as Francis AKA "The Tooth Fairy", the movie was overall darker and more explict than its original version.

Frailty- not sure if I would label this straight horror, but its a great horror/thriller. If I'm not mistaken Bill Paxton directed this? and it was probably my hands down favorite film of 03'. It had a very dark tone the entire movie, and it rarely let up. It creeps you out and it makes you feel very uneasy. The characters in the movie are very believeable and I think its probably one of the most underrated movies I've seen in the last 5 years.

Red dragon sucked. But then again so did man hunter. Other than silence of the lambs all the sequels sucked.

Everyone is entitles to their opinion, but I would say that Silence was obviously the king, but cinematically, Red Dragon was not a bad film, just not as good as Silence.

Hannibal, on the other hand, was horrendous.

Yes, but it makes a great double-bill with the new Beyond Re-Animator (which was why I listed it).
