100 Movies and Counting...

TOO SCARY 2 WATCH now presents a list of the top 2000's horror movies (arranged by year) that we believe may be worth checking out, if you love modern contemporary scary movies like we do. The list (divided into two parts) will continue to be updated as we continue to find more movies that we feel are worthy of adding. So be sure to check out both lists! 



**Special Note** The list will only include movies from the first decade of the 2000's (2000-2009) 

... In saying that, we've done our best to create a versatile list pulling from a variety of different horror genres; torture porn, teen screams, slashers, ghost movies, backwoods/breakdown movies -- we've got good movies, cheesy movies, popular movies, underrated movies, remakes, and more!

It can be argued whether some of the movies on the list belong in the horror genre (depending on how one defines horror) ... nevertheless (with versatility in mind), we've included some that are definitely horror, some that are horror comedies, some that are sci-fi action horror, some that are psychological thrillers, along with others that may be open for interpretation.

________________________________________________________________________
Disclaimer

Not all of the movies on the list, in our opinion, are actually good movies, but were chosen to be included for a variety of different reasons -- Some are staple horror films of the 2000's, some are popular horror films of the 2000's, some are cult films, while others are remakes or sequels to classic horror films from decades past.

Thanks and enjoy!
