Dead Before Dawn (2012) – With mugs abound, this parody, featuring Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future) is a clever take on the cursed-zombie myth.

Shaun of the Dead (2004) – British comedy meets American gore to build an adventure fit for both the horror and humor lover.

Practical Magic (1998) – Sandra Bullock steals the screen as one of two sisters doomed by a family curse to quite literally steal men’s hearts.

Invasion of the Body-Snatchers (1978) – Despite unfortunate effects of the time, this sci-fi—horror re-make of the 50’s classic doesn’t only get under the character’s skin.

Interview with the Vampire (1994) – Alternatively known as the movie everyone has heard of but never seen, Interview follows two vampires (Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise) at bloody odds over the centuries.

Horns (2014) – Sex, drugs and violence set to a rocking soundtrack brings out the devil in the lead suspect (Daniel Radcliff) of a murder, and the small town he lives in.

You’re Next (2013) – What if Clue was real, and far more bloody? With everyone doing everything right, You’re Next takes ‘psychological thriller’ to the next level.

Tucker and Dale Vs. Evil (2010) – “Why are these kids killing themselves all over my property?” When two country hicks save the life of a pretty college-aged camper and nurse her back to health, a hilarious role-reversal sheds light on what really happens in all those slasher flicks.

Sleepy Hollow (1999) – Tim Burton and Johnny Depp pair up for this creepy, vividly violent retelling of a classic New England tale of witchcraft and mystery.

From Dusk Til Dawn (1996) – Quinton Tarantino features in the film, but might as well have directed it with the amount of gore and wit one vampire movie can handle.
