Best Horror Movies of 2011: Jon's Take

Attack the Block

Jon drops in with the final staff "best of" list. Tomorrow, the list to end all lists -- for 2011, anyway!

The Best

10. Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil
Easily the funniest horror comedy in years, "Tucker & Dale" succeeded by deconstructing the hilly-billy sub-genre as adeptly as humanly possible.

9. We Need to Talk About Kevin

The Best Metal and Hard Rock Albums of 2011


I have long theorized that music in general works in cycles of twenty to twenty-five years, and that what's old can continually be made new again, like doctoring up that potato salad for one last go-around. To wit, in the 1990's, Pantera, Alice in Chains and the rest of grunge listed their influences as Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple and the classic rock of the 70's. In the 1970's, Led Zeppelin and their cohorts listed their influences as Chuck Berry, Blind Lemon Jefferson, and the blues and rock musicians of the 50's.

Best Horror Movies of 2011: John's Take

I Saw the Devil

John Shelton takes us into the homestretch of the BGH 2011 countdown with a look at his favorites of the year.

The Best

1. Attack the Block - Take "The Monster Squad," remake it in the style of early John Carpenter and set it in an inner city London plagued by terrifying muppet monsters and you get the most fun and exhilarating horror movie in years.

Best Horror Movies of 2011: Erin's Take

Hobo With a Shotgun

The highlight train keeps chugging, with Erin's list for the best films of 2011: both horror and not.

The Best Horror

Chillerama - This was awesome. Most people my age missed the golden age of Drive Thru Horror Shlock, and this was the highlight of the year for B-movie fans.

Best Horror Movies of 2011: Mark's Take

Paranormal Activity 3

We kick off week two of BGH's countdown of the best in 2011 with Mark's take.

The Best

1. Attack the Block - "Attack the Block" is a near-perfect example of earnestly executing on a simple, fun premise, and is one of the few films I've seen for the podcast that earns my unconditional recommendation. Cheggit, dis flick is an instant classic, believe.

Best Horror Movies of 2011: Angelo's Take

Stake Land

The list-stravaganza beat rolls on, with Angelo offering up his favorites from 2011, as we make our way to the official Bloody Good Horror Best of 2011 compilation.

Best Horror Movies of 2011: Casey's Take

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

With the BGH crew's final best of 2011 list creeping ever closer, Casey drops in to illuminate us on his picks for best of the year that was.

The Best

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 - Sure, “Harry Potter” was written for kids, but the filmmakers did a great job of finishing this franchise up in truly epic fashion. And they kept it nice and dark as well. No pulling punches for the kiddies in this flick!

Best Horror Movies of 2011: Carly's Take

Take Shelter

Leading up the unveiling of the official BGH Top Ten of 2011, we're rolling out every BGH contributor's picks for best of the year. Next up is Carly!

The Best

10. Scream 4 - I think the only reason I liked this one so much is because I expected to absolutely hate it. The best of the series other than the original, "Scream 4" is supremely self-aware and character driven, while never taking itself too seriously.

Best Horror Movies of 2011: Joe's Take

Troll Hunter

We keep counting them down to the launch of the official BGH Best of 2011 list. Joe lets us know how he sees it.

The Best

1. Troll Hunter - This movie pretty much made me question everything I ever thought was right. A foreign film with subtitles that I loved. Up is down, black
