***This post has a BONUS at the end for those of you who knew my wife Amy (www.amydixonfitness.com) in high school. I just can’t help myself. After yesterday’s insane 80’s flick I just had to wallow in my nutty 80’s horror world yet again.

Let’s get something right out of the way. Yes, this is another found footage movie. But you’ll have to trust me on this one. The Taking of Deborah Logan is on a whooooole other level.

Yep, Saw. Deal with it. In honor of its 10th anniversary today, and thus it being rereleased in theaters, I had to put Saw on this list.
