year in review

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.

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.

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!

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.

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


Editor's Note: The Bloody Good Horror crew has compiled the official BGH list of the best films of of 2011. Before we unleash this historic compilation, however, we will be counting down each contributor's votes for the best... and worst... of 2011. First up, Editor-in-Chief Eric!

Best of 2011

Insidious - Easily the scariest film I've seen in years. I've avoided re-watching it because I'm quite fond of sleeping at night.

The best and worst horror films of 2010, and what to look forward to in 2011.

We run train on the year's theatrical horror releases up until this point, and look ahead to the genre offerings this fall.

We break down 2008 as we saw it, and wonder aloud what will be thrilling us in 2009.

We discuss the events that led to us being horror fans, and do a recap of the first half of 08.
