Happy Non-2009! Congratulations on surviving with sanity (presumably) intact! O brave new year that has such capacity for craziness in’t! (With apologies to Aldous Huxley, and Shakespeare for that matter.)

Given that we’ve moved on to a new decade, the editors at The Awl have been running a fascinating “End of the ’00s” series by more writers than I can count. So I took the opportunity to rant about the decade in horror movies, from Saw to Rob Zombie to chicks with chainsaws. Since the rest of what happened in the aughts — pop culture’s soul-killing descent, the economy tanking, the labor market hemorrhaging, the steady decline of the U.S. as a superpower — was just too depressing.
