Rubber

Weather I like a number of them or not.
I like both of these lists. I really like the cult list. Rings true, in my mind.

I think lots of movies will be remembered as classics for many different reasons. Like High Tension is a classic to me, and will be remembered years from now, as launching french horror into the mainstream horror community. Rob Zombies The Devil Rejects (I saw it before house of the devil) is an example of raw violence, that reminisces back to the original ISOYG, or LHOTL. I think his movies will be remembered kind of in the same vein. Groundhouse will be remembered simply because of who made it.

I choose to use the word "remembered" instead of "classic", because I still think the movies I'm listing are good films overall.

Anyways looking at the post I quoted, I guess the movies I list are classic, and cult, and I've included them for many dif reasons.

Poultreygeist, Citizen Toxie, Return to Nuke Em' High
Gingersnaps (series, not just the first.)
Final Destination
Blade II/ Pan's Labyrinth
28 Days Later
Jason X
May
The Ring / The Grudge (asian to english remake association)
High Tention/The Hills Have Eyes (Alex Aja violent intro to American audience)
Shaun of the Dead
Zombieland
Three Extremes... (pairing of 3 of asia's finest directors to make an anthology)
The Descent (legitimately one of the best horror movies ever)
The Devils Rejects
Saw
American Psycho
Behind the Mask (found footage deconstruction comedy horror)
Slither (perfect combo of gore, laughs, and sci-fi horror)
Grindhouse
The Mist (can be considered one of the greatest modern horror films)
Deadgirl (hmm, this didn't get a lot of exposure, but I love it)
Eden Lake (^^ it's just a great exercise in violent thriller horror)
Let the Right One In ("classic" just oozes from this movie. no brainer really)
Pulse (asian, not that "one of the worst remakes ever" American one.
Drag Me to Hell (simply for being Raimi's return. Was a good movie too)
The House of the Devil (good movie that will remind you of other true classics)
Trick R Treat
Stake Land
Scream 4
The Bay (environment horror that will make you squirm for days)
Cabin in the Woods
Human Centipede (these movies WILL be remembered. The became pop culture phenomenons, and aside from that, I truly think the 2nd film was a masterpiece, even if it's tough to sit through.

Weather I like a number of them or not.
I found myself nodding in agreement with this list. I would like to say that only by lack of a wide release will Attack the Block remain a cult film. This movie seemed very in touch with it's respective generation, but it was grossly ignored. Kill List is another film that should be held in higher regard, but maybe it's too alienating.

With that, I would have to give the last couple decades to the British. Personally, I already consider these classics:

The Descent
28 Days Later
Eden Lake
Attack the Block
Shaun of the Dead
Kill List

and not horror but the neo-noirish Red Riding Trilogy is pretty great too.

Halloween and Halloween 2 will be remembered, but for all the wrong reasons.

And I don't think we can include Scream. The first two came out in the '90's, the third one was completely forgettable & sucks, and part 4 is just a lackluster rehash of parts one & two. Had Scream 4 actually delivered like the first, then it'd maybe be considered a classic eventually, but it fell way short of everyone's expectations.

I think the 2000's & up to this point will be remembered as being a stale & lazy period of horror. You have a few classics that you recognize as being so immediately, a couple good movies, & then the rest are fucking awful.

Let The Right One In stands head and shoulders above them all, IMO.

Hopefully the worthless US remake won't be remembered more. I don't see how it could... It's inferior in every way.
