Sometimes, it’s not enough to be a talented filmmaker. You don’t want to be making adventure films with a name like Spector Whussypants, and in that logic (however flimsy it is), you wouldn’t make a horror film with a non-scary name. In fact, sometimes, the scariest thing about a horror film is the name of the filmmaker. Hold on to your butt, because here are the top 10 horror directors’ names.
Tod Williams takes over from Eli Roth. Boo! Hiss!
The Man With The Iron Fists is more of a bloviated vanity piece by lead/director/writer/composer RZA than an homage to Chinese martial arts cinema. Proving that mediocre and poorly-edited action sequences are no substitute for a coherent screenplay, this film is an hour and a half of unenjoyable tosh that never even approaches the level of violence, gore, or fun that it promises. Someone better wrap RZA in a warm blanket and put him back to bed, he’s obviously not ready to be doing films yet.
RZA and Eli Roth give us a taste of what to expect from their upcoming feudal-China action film.

After the desolate wasteland of 2010 (The Crazies, and…?), 2011 has actually been a half decent year for horror movies: Kill List, Black Swan, Stake Land, Troll Hunter, Julia’s Eyes, Attack the Block (sort of), the first half of Insidious, the second half of Scream 4… But if early whisperings are to be believed, 2012 is going to be much better. LIST TIME.
