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. My top 10 is culled from films released domestically in 2013 only, not festival debuts (saw a lot of those, too). The festival films will get their chance when they're actually released.
So, which films made the cut? Read on… And stay tuned for other "Top 10 of 2013" lists from Shock's contributing writers!
