TOO SCARY 2 WATCH now presents a "Best of" list of 2011 horror films (arranged alphabetically) that we believe may be worth checking out, if you love scary movies like we do. The list will continue to be updated as we continue to find more movies that we believe are worthy of adding. We've done our best to create a versatile list pulling from a variety of different horror genres ...

 


Action horror movies, popular horror movies, B-movies, underrated movies, Independent 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 had highly anticipated theatrical releases, some are popular horror films, some are cheesy but entertaining, while others are remakes or sequels to classic horror films from decades past.

Thanks and enjoy!
