The Best in Horror - 2010


Welcome, as I (Brandon C. Sites: Critic of Modern Day Horror) take you on a journey back to what I thought was the best in horror for the year 2010. When creating these best of lists, I didn't set any perimeters to the amount of films that I would include in each category. 

With that in mind, it is possible for there to be zero (yes, zero!) films in any given category if I felt there was nothing worthy of inclusion. On the other hand, if I felt there were 5 or even 10 films worth including in a certain category, ....well then there is going to be 5 or even 10 films in that category.

My main reason for taking this approach is, because I didn't want to list films as being the best of for the sake of listing films. Also, if I felt that a certain category really stood out in horror for that year, I didn't want to be limited in the amount that I could choose as well.

2010 was a year of remakes, yet again, but also as a year in which some smaller horror films (Frozen, Hatchet II and [of course] Insidious) found there way to the multiplex. So kick back and see whether you agree or disagree with what I thought to be the best in horror for the year 2010.

*Please Note: In any given year, there will always be a Picture, Director, Actor, Actress, Supporting Actor and Supporting Actress category. The addition of any additional categories (example: Cinematography) is based on whether or not there is any horror films released in any given year that are worthy of mention in any additional category / categories.

Also, from time to time, these best of lists might be revised to include additional titles. The main reason being that some films might have played in a film festival one year, but didn't find nationwide distributuion until years later. A good example is All the Boys Love Mandy Lane. First released in 2006, it didn't play in theaters here in the US till 2013.
