10) The Evil Dead
A group of young adults travel to a cabin and discover a ‘book of the dead’. From here on out, an evil spirit in the woods, takes possession of the campers (Except Bruce Campbell). Who than need to be destroyed with unconventional, out of date special effects. With only one, groovy survivor left, it’s an all out chainsaw, hack fest against the evil dead, until sunrise.
A lighter dish of horror that’s meant to be eerily funny. A movie that leaves you feeling trapped, waiting for the inevitable despair, looming all around the characters. A frightening success, despite its low budget and cheesy lines.
9) Shaun of the Dead
Shaun is your average guy, who hasn’t gotten very far in life. Attempts at winning his ex back have been poorly timed with a recent zombie apocalypse. Seeing opportunity to show his worth, he’ll attempt to save his friends, family and get the girl he loves. The freshest zombie flick around, as far as undead goes. A comedy horror with a great mix of terror, gore and laughter.
It’s not everyday you get to prove yourself while the dead are walking. An adventure of introspection and love while everyone else is trying to eat you.
8 ) Quarantine

Responding to a routine 911 call turns deadly when the woman they’re trying to help is infected with an unknown virus.
