    It's sort of like a zombie movie in a way, but it's kinda not. It's one of those hand-held style movies, too (think blairwitch). Pretty good, but you have to not hate subtitles to watch it because it's a spanish film.

    Not a bad horror flick, at least by todays standards.

    Way better than those sh*tastic "Quarantine" American remakes.

    I have to admit, that witch b*tch at the end scared the crap outta me.

    Also, you young bucs need to check out some of the classics being mentioned.

    Everyone except for Jets Things and SAR are making me feel like an old bastard.

    And at the same time, feel extremely good about my taste in movies.


    EDIT: Lamont and Dreamers too

    So basically, DDNY and McGinley...what the hell guys?

    Love these threads. It shows how muck people love movies in that people commonly list trilogies in in spot so they can add other favs, and/or list more than 10 because it's too hard to cull the list further (see below).

    No order:

    North By Northwest
    Big Leb
    Requiem for a Dream
    Indiana Jones
    Usual Suspects
    Hoosiers
    Duel
    MP and the Holy Grail
    Anchorman
    The Conversation
    Res Dogs
    Pulp Fiction
    Full Metal Jacket
    Drugstore Cowboy
    Hurly Burly
    Memento
    Batman Begins

    Edit: How could I forget Shaft series?
