Well the scream sequels lol but yeah they deserve on the list as well!

Sadly paranormal activity is the 2000's blair witch project so it will be remembered as well.

Frailty is another good one but I don't know if it will be high up there in 20 years.

Some good additions there especially Session 9. I hope films like Session 9 and Martha Marcy May Marlene get seen by future generations as they are amazing films that have lacked attention.

I guess one answer to this thread will be to wait and see how the B-D top 50 horror films turns out.

I definitely feel like the foreign films have been the best at putting out horror in recent years. IMO, not much done in North America can compare to these. Disappointed at the lack of Oldboy up there though.

The first Saw is actually an incredibly smart movie. I can see how the ending is hit or miss with some people, but for the most part it's a very well rounded film.

The original Saw is a game changer for the genre and kicked the door open for Hostel and the new generation of extreme style horror flicks. This one I would say can be considered classic.

Let The Right One In
Rec
The Mist

I think there are others that will be held in high regard but I think those 3 are among the very few that will be considered truly classic.

Sinister
Jeepers Creepers
The Devil's Rejects
House of the Devil
Drag Me To Hell
Halloween 2
Saw
The Strangers
Texas Chainsaw Massacre
(2003)

Despite the over-abundance of generic, terrible movies, I think these are among some that will be more positively remembered over time, & rightfully so, considering there's actual thought put behind them. The last of the bunch I mentioned will certainly be regarded as a classic due to the fact that it's one of the best remakes out there, it was insanely, hugely financially successful, & it started what initially seemed like a never-ending trend of horror remakes.

Rob Zombie has a pretty high status therefore H2 will be remembered whether it's a classic is debatable but it definitely will still be talked about 20+ years from now.
