The Top 10 Horror Movies of 2013: Ryan’s Picks

Selecting the top 10 horror movies of 2013, in my opinion, came easy. In previous years, I struggled, limiting myself to eight selections or five or finding other ways to spin movies I just “liked” but didn’t really “love.” I had a hard timing commiting, you might say. This year, when I put pen to paper, the titles I considered the best just rolled out in no time (as did the “worst” of the year).

There was a lot to offer genre fans this year. While there were a handful of wide releases, horror exploded on the limited theatrical/VOD scene.

Many independent filmmakers and smart production companies and distributors are utilizing this talent for truly eye-catching posters.

I’m opening the list up to not just films but television shows as well, since small screen fright fare is becoming more and more common. A few things to note, before you start asking me questions like, “Why isn’t [insert random film title here] on this list?” I’ve seen a few of the horror films opening in 2014 already such as Big Bad Wolves, The Green Inferno, and Witching & Bitching. Also: This is a personal list. It doesn’t reflect the opinion of the other contributors to this site, just mine. With that said, let’s get started, shall we?
