A Guest Top Ten Horror Movie List – John Pata

Below is a guest Top Ten List along with some honorable mentions from one member of the writer/director pair behind the film Dead Weight.  John does a great job of going into his list and the fun of his list.  John was featured in an interview at the end of last seasons (6) on an interview regarding Dead Weight. The film was just reviewed in the season.

So below is John’s Top Ten List along with his Honorable Mentions.

John Pata…………

Truth be told, no matter how much I spend on this list, I will want to change it immediately. And then tomorrow. And then next week, and the week after that. And so on… And so on… And so on…

I decided it was time just to get it the way I want it (for now, of course), and leave it at that. I’m sure there are plenty I spaced out on and left off the list, too. Now I am not saying that these are the BEST films of the 2000s, rather the ones I enjoyed the most. Be it for the craft, story, gore, scares or anything else really. Oh, and they are listed in alphabetical order. It was challenging enough to narrow it down to ten. I’ll be damned if I was going to attempt to rank them after that. However, I did select a “cream of the crop”, for what it’s worth. So, without further adieu…
