La Haine (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0113247/) - Though I should warn you, it's a bit on the depressing side.

Paranormal Activity

It's a 15-rated film. This reflects the fact that very little that you could actually call horrific happens in it. Despite that, this is one of the scariest films I've seen in...

V for Vendetta

In a lot of ways it wasn't a bad film. My main gripe, as is so often the way with these, is that it isn't decently faithful to the original. It has taken big chunks of the story...
