2009 – Drag Me To Hell – Sam Raimi
Why- Raimi returns to horror since Bruce Campbell vs The Army or Darkness. This film was so good you can sign my up for Evil Dead 4.
2008 – Cloverfield – Matt Reeves
Why- Best monster movie of the past few decade. The great publicity and mockumentary style film making all contribute to it being one of the top films.
2007 – No Country for Old Men – Coan Brothers

2006 – El laberinto
Why- Like Spirited Away, Del Toro shows that fairy tales aren’t just for kids. Even if El laberinto

2001 – Donnie Darko
Why- Richard Kelly’s sci-fi horror did very badly in
2000 – Memento – Christopher Nolan
Why- Memento has the best editing in any movie I have ever scene. The was so impressive it would inspire any new film-maker.
And Film of the Decade goes to-
Hayao Miyazaki’s SPIRITED AWAYAnd there you have it folks. I’d like to thank Kid in the Front Row for all his help with my blog (he’s doing a great job) and I’d like to thank the few people who read this and enjoy it. And if you want to join the team contact me for further details.
