I'll be the first to give it to the 00s. I happen to like extreme violence and the "torture porn" genre. Directors like Alexandre Aja, Eli Roth, and James Wan gave us some great gore-fests in this decade.
There were some stand-out original films (May, The Descent, Drag me to Hell). There were some solid remakes (The Ring, Dawn of the Dead, The Hills Have Eyes) plus decade-defining franchises like Final Destination, Saw, and Resident Evil.
The 2000s were all about excessive, over-the-top shock, and I think that works well for the horror genre.
