Cannibal Kitchen: Top 5 Horror Films of 2011

Cannibal Kitchen: Top 5 Horror Films of 2011

📅07 January 2012, 02:45

It’s official; Cannibal Kitchen is 1 year old. I figured it’s only appropriate to bust out the party hats and ring 2012 in with my top 5 movies of 2011. To make things even more exciting, I’m going to give you my top picks paired along with some liquid recipes that will help you fit back into your pants. These recipes are loaded with all things good for you, and will help you get back on track after the holiday feeding frenzy we all indulged in.


Before we hit the list, I must say, 2011 was a rough year for horror. I’ve been racking my brain lately trying to narrow down exactly what is worthy of making a “Top” list, and to be honest there wasn’t much. In the end I narrowed it down to 5 movies. Now I’m sure not every one is going to agree with these picks because we are all humans and having different opinions is what makes us special. At least that’s what my Kindergarten teacher taught me. Regardless, these are the top 5 horror movies that made me smile in 2011 and by all means I’d love to hear what films made you grin and giggle this past year as well. May the countdown and De-bloating begin!


5) Munger Road



Oh Munger Road, you remind me of many men I have dated in the past. I was totally into you, but as time went on you did something stupid and now I’m pissed. Regardless, of how much the ending to this film pissed me off I can’t seem to get the movie out of my mind. Who knows, maybe I’m just soft to it because it circles around an urban legend from not to far out of Chicago that I grew up being spooked with. All in all though, Munger Road runs strong and suspenseful for most of the film, and for that I smiled. Give it a whirl people.

4) Attack the Block



Joe Cornish created the perfect amount of comedy and horror with this film. I laughed, I smiled, and I managed to work one-liners from this movie into every day conversations for weeks upon weeks. Mission accomplished with this quirky alien invasion.

3) Scream 4



I looked forward to the release of this movie more than any in 2011, and you bet your hiney I was at the midnight showing pretzel bites in hand ready to rage. Thank you Wes Craven because you did not disappoint. Was this the best Scream film in the franchise? Of course not, but it was 100% enjoyable. So let’s make a deal Mr. Craven, you keep popping them out, and I’ll keep tap dancing all the way to the theater.

Directions:
In a food processor or blender mix all ingredients until smooth. This has more of a savory taste to it.

2) Dream Home



Dream Home is like an hour and a half long foreign episode of t

he TV show Snapped. After all, they say when a woman finely loses it; she’s more dangerous than a man. Dream Home shows you first hand the truth behind that. There’s gratuitous gore, likable characters, and an all around great storyline. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Foreign horror, especially of the Asian ethnicity, tends to be some of the best out there these days. Kudos



Healthy Home Smoothie



Ingredients:
– 1 Cup Peaches, Skin cut off and chopped
– 2 Orange Slices, Peeled
– 1/3 Cup Cantaloupe
– 1 Teaspoon Fresh Lime Juice
 – 1 Cup Coconut Milk


Directions:
In a food processor or blender mix all ingredients until smooth. This has a combination of sweet and savory flavors.

1) I Saw the Devil



Yes I Saw the Devil may not be 100% horror, but in my opinion it has enough horror aspects to make it on my top list and number 1 at that. Beyond that, I’d even go as far as to say it’s hands down one of the best films I saw in 2011 out of any genre. This film is about 2 1/2 hours long and I loved every minute of it. That in itself says a lot about the quality of work Kim Jee-woon put forth in this beauty. It’s consists of a wonderful game of cat and mouse, the struggle between good and evil, and Korean film making and its finest. If I had a hat on right now I’d be tipping it.



I Saw The De-Bloating Begin Smoothie 



Ingredients:
– 1 Banana
– 1 Cup Raspberries
– 1/3 Cup Kiwi
– 1 Date, Pitted
– 1 Teaspoon Almond Butter
– 1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon
– 1 Cup Coconut Milk


Directions:
In a food processor or blender mix all ingredients until smooth. This has a s

emi sweet flavor with a subtle note of cinnamon flavor in the end.


Makes 1


So there you have it folks! Now I know I left a ton off this list, but that doesn’t mean I have any hate for most of the films that graced many others “Top 2011” lists. However, like I stated before, these are 5 films that made me smile the biggest last year, and obviously not a top list for the world. I will say I’m super excited to see what finally gets a DVD or theater release in 2012, and I hope it includes The Road (Yam Laranas), Dear God No! (James Bickert), and Absentia (Mike Flanagan). So what were some of your favorites, and what are you anxious to see before the world ends?
