Poll Result: Best Horror Film of the 2010s

The Cabin in the Woods

– The Cabin in the Woods: 10 votes
– The Conjuring: 7 votes
– Warm Bodies: 2 votes
– The Awakening: 1 vote
– The Bay: 1 vote
– Berberian Sound Studio: 1 vote
– Byzantium: 1 vote
– Evil Dead: 1 vote
– Insidious: 1 vote
– I Saw the Devil: 1 vote
– John Dies at the End: 1 vote
– Paranormal Activity 2: 1 vote
– Red State: 1 vote

In a bit of a surprise, this was basically a two-horse race from beginning to end. A lot of films received votes, but in the end this was The Cabin in the Woods‘ poll to lose. Nice to see The Conjuring, one of this year’s biggest surprises, finish strong as well.

This Week’s Poll: Until this past weekend’s takeover by Bad Grandpa, the box office had been dominated lately by two films: Gravity and Captain Phillips. We already had a Gravity-related poll this month, so let’s take a look at the latter. What are the TWO best Tom Hanks films? The man has had an amazing career, so this one should be interesting.

Have a great week, folks!

    Great outcome on the poll. I don’t think this has been a great decade for horror films. They’ve just been so eh! Sad.

    Voted Forrest Gump and Big. Could have easily voted for any of those though.

    Oh yeah two I voted for at the top πŸ™‚ In this one I’m voting for Philadelphia and Saving Private Ryan, Hanks was great in both of those too.

    Hi, Eric:

    Pleasantly surprised with ‘The Cabin in The Woods’ winning. Nice twists on the standard isolated clutch of kids dealing with Joss Whedon’s imagination and superior monsters usually win the day.

    I’ll go with ‘Apollo 13’ for Tom Hanks. ‘Saving Private Ryan’ has always struck me as a longer and bigger budgeted take on an episode of ABC’s monumental WWII series, ‘Combat!’ from the 1960s.

    I should rewatch Cabin in the Woods, I don’t think I “got” the humor (or horror references) on first viewing. Maybe now that I’ve seen a few more horror films, I may appreciate it a bit more.

    As for Tom Hanks, a tough call. I’ve always had a soft spot for Big (1988), and his performance in Forrest Gump is unforgettable.
