The Arrow's Top 10 Horror Films of 2013!Is it me or did big screen horror lose some of its steam in 2013? It didnít help matters that the more interesting horror films (which are usually low to medium budget), like this yearís THE COLLECTION, PLUS ONE, THE BAY, MANIAC 2013 or HAUNTER got limited releases, which basically means, I had to see them on VOD or not at all.
Looking back, if I had to think of six high points for the genre in 2013, they would be JAMES WAN'S THE CONJURING and EVIL DEAD which killed at the box office, CURSE OF CHUCKY which took the VOD market by storm (trust me, I know, AITHís hits went up cause of that psycho doll, people love Chucky, and Universal knows it again), the oh-hum THE PURGE (which made the money YOU'RE NEXT should have bagged), WORLD WAR Z which broke the bank and to some degree INSIDIOUS 2, which may have underperformed but still made some waves.
On that here are my 10 FAVORITE FILMS of the year. I didnít stick solely to horror; I have gory Action and some Sci Fi in there, as per every year. Do keep in mind that at this point in terms of AITH, I mostly cover theatricals while staffers do the Limited and VOD releases. So nope I didn't see everything. NOTE 1: My top 10 is preceded by my BIGGEST LET DOWN OF THE YEAR, my two WORSE FILMS OF THE YEAR and TWO HONORABLE MENTIONS. NOTE 2: If we had covered MAN OF STEEL, it would have been in there, I love that movie to pieces! NOTE 3: Don't forget to share your own TOP 10 OF 2013 via the comments section below! HERE WE GO!
