    Best No to Low Budget Indie? All the films listed had pretty decent budgets. What about Gimme Skelter? Necroville? Easter Bunny Kill Kill?

    Without a doubt in my mind, and any ones else who has half a mind knows well that poultrygeist was the greatest film made last year (2008).

    I thought Strangers was the best horror movie of last year. You should bump hellboy b/c thats obviously not horror in any way and give Strangers that spot.

    Can’t put every film people liked into all the categories :)
