April 8, 2009 As ESplatter is entering its 10th year, it seemed like a good time to look back at what our readers have voted the Top 10 best movies as far back as there are records.
Well, we've been asking readers for their picks since at least 2002, when "Frailty" managed to beat out the competition and get named best of the year. Looking back, it's hard not to notice how much the horror landscape has changed. Heck, "Freddy vs. Jason" is now an old movie.
The relevant horror movie scene has definitely become more European -- most notably French -- the last several years. And many great more titles have become direct-to-DVD. In '01, we didn't have a readers poll, just editor's picks. I put these in the list just for old time's sake.
