WORST FILM

- Up to you! Fill in your own choice for worst horror film of 2008.

MY CHOICE - MIRRORS

AFTER COUNTLESS SLEEPLESS NIGHTS OF INTENSE DELIBERATION, I HEREBY DECREE THAT THE ONE INDIVIDUAL MOST DESERVING OF INDUCTION INTO THE FANGORIA HALL OF FAME IS :

- Up to you! Fill in your own choice for who you think should be inducted into the Hall of Fame.

MY CHOICE - NEIL MARSHALL

Definitely agree with Johnny on a lot of stuff. And by the way, I felt like The Signal didn't get a lot of love from people last year because it was a little off the wall, but if you know that it's three distinct parts that are all fairly different, then you will probably like it more. And I just happened to find out that Amazon has it on Blu-Ray for less than the DVD! Just in case you wanted to pick that up.

  1. Mirrors! Totally forgot about that one. Definetly one of the worst horror films of '08. My other choices aside from Day of the Dead were Prom Night and Diary of the Dead, all equally as shitty.

    I actually haven't seen The Signal yet. I've heard a lot of mixed things about it which has kinda kept me away, but I guess I should give it a shot.
