2006 was a banner year and the best horror films 2006 list that I provide here will be relatively controversial, however, these lists always are. The main reason no one can agree on these listings is that while several people consider all slasher motion pictures to be horror, some only think that supernatural elements make up the horror genre. We can’t be that picky so we will evaluate them all in the following summation lest we hurt any sensitivities out there.
“Feast” directed by John Gulager was actually launched in 2005 but didn’t hit the movie theaters until of 2006. Featuring the normal zombies run amok plot, it goes off track rapidly and stays pretty unsettling. Really gory and frightening and certainly a must see. Few excellent horror films have been made from great horror books but the top of the ton are “The Exorcist” (original book by William Peter Blatty), “Carrie” (Stephen King), and “The Shining” (King once again).
Six ladies get caught inside an underground cave maze while spelunking and are chased by albino earth-dwelling creatures in this very frightening movie directed by Neil Marshall. The best thing about this motion picture is that they develop the story and characters very carefully to make certain that we as as viewers get very involved with every person. We care about what happens to all of them and thus the scary parts are even more frightening.
“Hostel” is also in my best terror movies 2006 list although it lacks a supernatural element into it since it is greatly scary at times and often disturbing. A group of backpackers heading to Europe get attracted right into a hostel that has beautiful ladies playing around in skimpy clothes. They get kidnapped and placed as victims into a “torture club” for rich sickos. Definitely not for the kids.
One more of the top scary films 2006 is “Turistas” which a number of people disliked but I liked, considering I have spent lots of time in the jungles of Central America and can relate to the topic. Travelers getting robbed and set upon by the locals makes for excellent suspense motion picture. Not really common “horror” but scary enough as a suspense film. Exactly what what people mean about “horror” anyway? Does anyone really get terrified anymore? Essentially the most these kinds of films will do to common jaded people is a jolt now and then that makes them jump out of their seat.
The last movie that was truly horrifying was “The Exorcist” which remained with you long after you left the theater. That feeling of fear that made you scared to get to sleep alone through the night does not arrive often. Another film which terrified me like that was “The Blair Witch Project” however I do know a lot of people resented it and even got sick watching the moving camera shots. “Paranormal Activity” was similar to Blair Witch, with lots of hand held camera parts though not quite as many as in Blair Witch or Cloverfield.
Get the popcorn and gummy bears. Time for you to get scared!
