Hypnotoad

17/100

14. [Rec] (2007)  "While covering the night shift at a small-town fire department, an ambitious young television reporter (Manuela Velasco) and her cameraman follow the crew on a call to rescue an elderly woman unable to escape her home."  Good luck finding this one but if you are a fan of zombie horror you have GOT to see this one.  I rate this one, 9/10 for but ONLY for zombie fans.

15. Orfanato, El (2007) " A woman brings her family back to her childhood home, where she opens an orphanage for handicapped children."  This is probably THE best movie I have seen all year.  This is being released on April 22nd and it is a must see!!!  Don't hesitate to see this even if you aren't a lover of horror.  Don't expect too much real terror as most of the chills in this film are suspenseful and poetic rather than gruesome.  I give this movie a 9/10

16. Jûbei ninpûchô (1993) " A ninja-for-hire is forced into fighting an old nemesis who is bent on overthrowing the Japanese government."  This was NOT my cup of tea.  I think it is probably quite a thrill for young teenage boys who will love being able to view nude anime butts and boobs!  But for me this was a miss and I give it a 4/10.

17. The Birds (1963) "A wealthy San Francisco playgirl pursues a potential boyfriend to a small Northern California town that slowly takes a turn for the bizarre when birds of all kinds suddenly begin to attack people there in increasing numbers and with increasing viciousness."  Alfred Hitchcock  RULES!!!  When Hitchcock touches a film I just know it will stand the test of time.  This is not a film that will scare todays audiences.  But those who want atmospheric potency and character development will love this movie. 7/10
