Top 6 Horror Movies Since 2000

Update on

The best horror films of 2021 weren't just reflecting our year, they were jokingly reassuring reminders that even the saddest and darkest sides of the human psyche are not particular to a single person. Also, sometimes all you need is the killer shirt.

After a long day at work, or school you’re going to want to come home to a fresh bowl of popcorn, a cold glass of soda, and a horrifying movie to watch.  Horror films are a great way to pass the time while sitting around at home, but why don't you try playing CSGO Case Opening every now and again, especially since that can be scary since you don't know what you’ll unbox!

Saw, being a low-budget film, shocked moviegoers in being really gruesome to watch. Two men waking up in a locked bathroom, held by chains. Apparently a suidcide victim lies between them, with a tape recorder in his pocket. They both slowly realize that they are prisoners of the Jigsaw Killer, who kidnaps people and places them in traps to test if they are truly wanting to live.

The burnt-faced dream killer finds himself powerless in Hell, weakened since the residents of his old haunted, Springwood town, have forgotten about him.

Hostel (2005)

The movie “Hostel” tells the story of a group of careless American and Icelandic backpackers who, having just graduated, are on a trip across Europe. Pressured by the glamor of a Slovakian hostel.  The trip should’ve been a holiday full of drink and casual sex ends with the group taken captive and tortured by a sociopathic institution.

6. The Mist (2007)

The Mist (2007)

The Mist, is a film based on the Stephen King Novella which was written in 1980. Directed by Frank Darabont. The film has an all star cast consisting of Nathan Gamble, Thomas Jane, Andre Braugher and Toby Jones to name a few.

Frank Darabont actually changed up the ending of the film to be darker than that of what Stephen King wrote. He also used unique monster designs in order to further differentiate some of the creatures that have been used in his past films.

As with many of Stephen King's films/books the plot is about members of a small town based in Maine where a devastating thunderstorm has caused the power to go out. Resulting in the townspeople meeting in a market to pick up supplies. All the while an unnatural mist surrounds Bridgton which hides a raft of different monsters all hellbent on murdering the townspeople.
