The Mist at #8 and Drag Me to Hell at #7? Wtf? I have been rewatching Drag Me to Hell 4 times already since only yesterday yet the ending isn't that great, compared to The Mist, it's been years since the last time I watched it, but I still remember it frame-by-frame because of how DEPRESSING it was. He also had to kill his son, his own SON! I can't even rewatch that scene to this day. While in Drag Me to Hell (rewatched it 4 times since yesterday), the ending is in fact enjoyable to watch, not depressing or that great. No offense, I really liked Alison Lohman, but I do like seeing her character Christine die at that scene over and over again. It's been 11 years, yet I still enjoy Christine's death scene lol. In my opinion, The Mist should have been at #6 or #5 while Drag Me to Hell should be at #9. Also, Cabin in the Woods as #1? You gotta be kidding me. I still hate that movie, especially the ending FYI. It's a lot worse than Drag Me to Hell. She was too selfish at the final scene that she wants the WHOLE world come to an END so she could just survive. In real life, I hate selfish people, no wonder why I hate Cabin in the Woods in my opinion. Plus they were all scripted, like a reality show, compared to Drag Me to Hell which uses mythology as the main story instead of the "ancient gods watching human rituals" story used in Cabin in the Woods. As a Filipino, and that I am familar with our own Philippine mythology, I can relate to the story of Drag Me to Hell because it's the usual "kulam" or "sumpa" story (sumpa is Tagalog for curse). I only watched Cabin in the Woods a couple times back in 2012, but I still can't relate to the story because it is so BS to me.

Hereditary should be nummer one. It was so creepy and confusing at the same time. And that music, Hereditary is one of the best and scariest horror movies I've ever seen.

Cabin in the woods made me really angry. The characters are selfish enough to end the world instead of sacrificing their self. Smh
