What 21st century horror movies do audiences love the most? The folks over at Movies, Films and Flix collected tons of data and have an answer! By compiling and averaging the user ratings from Metacritic, IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes they were able to figure out what horror movies the audiences think are the best.

The list will certainly annoy many but I like that they added every type of horror film to the mix.

Here are the top 10 according to IMDb, Metacritic and Rotten Tomatoes users. You can check out the full list at Movies, Films and Flix.

10. Sympathy for Lady Vengeance (2005) - Average Score - (81)

I love the Revenge trilogy and was excited to see that audiences like it as well.

9. Black Swan (2010) - Average Score - (81.6)

Psychological horror doesn't get any better than it does in Black Swan.

8. Zombieland (2009) - Average Score - (82)

It may feature a lot of comedy but it also features tons of blood and zombie mayhem. I love self-aware zombie carnage. Tallahassee is my hero.

7. American Psycho (2000) - Average Score (82.3)

Do not mess with Patrick Bateman. I love American Psycho. It is a bonkers and bloody masterpiece.

6. What We Do in the Shadows (2014) - Average Score - (82.3)

I think it is awesome that What We Do in the Shadows is becoming a cult classic. It is an incredibly funny film that explores the modern day vampire.

5. The Devil’s Backbone (2001) - Average Score - (84.3)

This movie never fails to scare the crap out of me. You need to watch it.

4. The Gift (2015) - Average Score - (85.3)

What I liked about this movie was how surprisingly good it was. It came out of nowhere and unsettled many.

3. Let the Right One In (2008) - Average Score - (86)

Vampires movies don't get any better than this. Let the Right One In is a beautiful film.

2. Shaun of the Dead (2004) - Average Score - (86.3)

Shaun of the Dead is my favorite horror comedy. It is pure gold and features tons of blood!

1. Pans Labyrinth (2006) - Average Score- (86.6)

I guess it could be described as a "dark fantasy war thriller" but it features enough horror elements to earn the horror label.
