5 Best Horror Movies 2006

Wednesday, January 19 by Shawn Landis

There were not many horror movies made in 2006, which made the task of coming up with the 5 best horror movies of 2006 much easier. Why this list is getting made in 2010 is a bit of a mystery, but sometimes there are things that man was not meant to know.

  1. “The Omen” remake. Damien once again walks the Earth in a way that is exceptionally approved by the Vatican. It is not as scary as "The Exorcist," but it was still quite disturbing. Crows and ravens really are as vicious in real life as they are in this movie, but usually only to other birds.
  2. “Silent Hill.” Even though the plot from the games got changed, the idea was still there and it worked. The layers of reality shifted just as they do in the video-game town. Also, the community was based off of a coal mining town that once existed in Central Pennsylvania. The worms were a nice, creepy touch.
  3. “Pathogen.” Pathogen followed the pattern of a virus, bacteria on unknown fungus wiping out a town, city or the world. Yet, despite this original formula brought to its most impressive light in the recent remake of "The Andromeda Strain," it is still one of the best horror movies of 2006.
  4. “Final Destination 3.” The series is based on an interesting premise, as Death does finally get what he wants in the end, but it does not seem to have the same magic as the other films.  
  5. “I'll Always Know What You Did Last Summer.”  When a film beats out any of the Saw films on the list of the five best horror films, it could be a good or a bad sign. Sadly, while the person who uttered that sentences knows what the hero did, the rest of us just get the impression that he likes delivering creepy messages.
