[click on the title to read the review]

1. The Conjuring (2013)

Quote: "An old-fashioned, atmospheric, tastefully-crafted, and genuinely frightening creepfest that can be easily considered one of the ten best horror movies of the past decade!" (9.50/10)

2. Trolljegeren a.k.a.
The Troll Hunter 

Quote: "Due to its chillingly-original concept, pitch-perfect execution and mind-blowing visuals, "The Troll Hunter" ranks right up there with such mocku-masterpieces as "[REC]" and "Blair Witch"." (9.25/10)

3. The Loved Ones (2010)

Quote: "Dementedly-sick, extremely gory, brilliantly-creative and nightmarishly-funny, "The Loved Ones" is a true 
modern horror masterpiece!" (9.00/10)

4. The Reef (2010)

Quote: "A brilliantly-shot, incredibly realistic, and super-intense edge-of-your-seat horror flick that easily ranks among the best 
shark-themed films of all time!" (8.50/10)

5. Splice (2010)

Quote: "With its excellent pacing, fascinating visuals and unique story, "Splice" is a bizarre, yet hauntingly beautiful and quite 
memorable film experience." (8.50/10)

6. Los ojos de Julia a.k.a.
Julia's Eyes 

Quote: "Consistently tense, refreshingly unpredictable and utterly engrossing, "Julia's Eyes" certainly ranks as one of the most polished and skillfully-executed horror thrillers in recent history." (8.50/10)

7. Tale of Tales (2015)

Quote: "Delightfully twisted in nature, obscure in tone, and even grimmer than any Grimm story ever told, "Tale of Tales" is far from being your typical 'happily ever after' fairy tale." (8.25/10)

8. Let Me In (2010)

Quote: "Beautifully-filmed, subtly creepy and thoroughly compelling, 
"Let Me In" is one of those extremely rare cases, where the remake is even better than the original." (8.25/10)

9. The Tall Man (2012)

Quote: "A thought-provoking, deeply disturbing and strangely captivating horror thriller with a great message, filled with mind-boggling twists and turns that will haunt you long after the credits roll." (8.25/10)

10. Sinister (2012)

Quote: "Every bit as creepy as its title suggests, and also one of the best horror movies of 2012, as it manages to deliver genuine scares and tons of suspense, without having any major flaws." (8.00/10)

11. The Taking of Deborah Logan (2014)

Quote: "A rare hidden gem of a horror movie that delivers a jolt after jolt as the plot unfolds, and culminates in a final act that features one of the scariest film sequences ever shown." (8.00/10)

12. Sleep Tight (2011)

Quote: "A subtly scary and darkly unsettling psychological horror thriller that certainly won't help you sleep tight at night. At all." (8.00/10)

13. Daybreakers (2010)

Quote: "The weird depiction of this vampire world makes "Daybreakers" unique to every other vampire movie." (7.75/10)

14. Mother's Day (2011)

sheer terror that gets under your skin and stays there 
long after the credits roll." (7.75/10)

15. Evil Dead (2013)

Quote: "This remake stands on its own, providing its anticipating audience with a heavy dose of ultra-gory gruesomeness, some brutally nasty death scenes, and a couple of good scares." (7.75/10)

I haven't seen a couple of those. The Conjuring was definitely one of the best.

It was indeed. Can't wait for the sequel!

As much as I remember, you also enjoyed the Troll hunter, right? :)
