If you haven’t checked out the horror genre in a while, or you are simply overwhelmed by the number of choices out there, try starting with this list of the top nine horror movies of the last ten years.

1. Shaun of the Dead (2004)
IMDB rating: 8.0
Rotten Tomatoes: 91% fresh
The first film outing of the brilliant team of Nick Frost, Simon Pegg, and Edgar Wright. Wright directs Pegg and Frost as two thirty-something slackers who, along with a few friends, face down a zombie invasion in a suburban London neighborhood. The movie is very funny, with some real scares and surprising moments of pathos mixed in. Created the “ZomRomCom” (Zombie Romance Comedy) genre, which made a place for movies like Zombieland (2009) and Warm Bodies (2013).
