Dread Central's Best and Worst of 2011





Well, folks, 2011 is officially in the can, and surprisingly it wasn't such a horrendous year. It was definitely better than 2010, which was a huge step up from the putrid 2009. We laughed, we applauded, we were left dumbstruck, and of course we were infuriated. Read on for our cheers and jeers!

Now, with a fresh movie-watching start before us, we're taking our usual yearly look back at the good, the bad, the WTF, and everything in between.

And don't be lazy by just reading along! Get off of your asses and give us your lists in the comments section below. We wanna hear from you if only to compare notes. Lots and lots of notes.

Speaking of notes, the most common complaint we've heard over the years is that we don't have one definitive list representing Dread Central as a whole so for 2011 we dropped everyone's choices in the blender, hit puree, and came out with the overall best and worst of the year, and those films are:

BEST: Attack the Block and Tucker & Dale vs. Evil (tie)
Runner-up: I Saw the Devil

WORST: The Roommate
Runner-up: Hellraiser: Revelations, Red Riding Hood, Creature (three-way tie)

I disagree. Rise of the Planet of the Apes felt more manufactured to me. Cliches everywhere. I could guess about everything that was going to happen within the second and third act. Claimed to have Horror elements, and I found none. At least Hobo had the balls to do what it wanted to.

I really loved it too.... I think you should re-watch it. I think what makes it stand out from most other Grindhouse films is that it has some real soul to it. The Hobo and the Hooker have some real heart and they are easy to relate to. If it didn't have that, I probably wouldn't have enjoyed it as much. It was done right, not forced, and perfectly executed between characters without being preachy.
