Halle-fuckin-lujah, it looks like the horror genre might finally be making a comeback. For a while there in the earlier years of the 21st century, it seemed like the well had almost run completely dry and there was nothing but a parade of shitty remakes and/or sequels, and worst of all, the mainstreaming of the torture subgenre, which came and went in a mercifully limited time frame. But in the past couple of years it seems like more creative, understated genre entries have been popping up more and more, with an emphasis on clever ideas and solid filmmaking, rather than cheap scares and shock value.
