Haunter
Big Bad Wolves
We Are What We Are
The Last Days

.... and I'm really struggling to come up with a fifth. Wish I'd seen You're Next and Cheap Thrills, but I'm at an age where I'd rather get some sleep. It sounds like both should've been on earlier in the day.

Honestly, I think the best thing I saw all weekend was the clip from The Raid 2.

In no order: Dark Tourist, Haunter, WIther, Willow Creek, Big Bad Wolves.

There were lots of good films -nothing truly terrible, but nothing truly great to topple my Top 5 since I started attending in 2009 (again in no order): The House of the Devil, Monsters, We Are What We Are (2010), The Woman, Kill List. 8)

1.Big Bad Wolves
2.We Are What We Are

Cheap Thrills would be next, although it really was a troubling movie. Feel Bad Cinema.

Although I really enjoyed the bulk of films this year, I found my top 5 to be easy to pick;

1) Stalled
2) Big Bad Wolves
3) We Are What We Are
4) Cheap Thrills
5) You're next

Just bubbling under: V/H/S/ 2

All superb, for different reasons. Great stuff! Good Fest.

I also really enjoyed RIPD (nice surprise because I was expecting it to be bad), The Last Days (except the ending - this one also made my bottom 5 due to the ending), Odd Thomas (good clean fun) and We Are What We Are (very nicely done, classy movie)
