I wouldn’t exactly call 2013 a magnificent year for horror films, but there was a handful of traditional and extremely non-traditional films that pinged the radar down in the Fister Roboto R & D Sexbot Lab.
Director, James Wan was a busy guy this year, contributing to two films on my list. Both The Conjuring and Insidious 2 were horror gold at the box office, grossing over $210,000,000 collectively. Wan claims he’s done with horror for the time being, but I guess we’ll see. Wan first grabbed horror lovers’ attention when he directed the indie sleeper, Saw. 2013 didn’t feature very much theatrical horror that was worth a shit, but the indie market was kind to us. The Conjuring was 2013’s most successful theatrical horror release, racking up a respectable $137,400,141 to date.
If you’re in the process of sending me a biting message about how ______ was filmed in 2012, I’m adding these to the list based on their major release dates. Yes, filmed in 2012, released in 2013 still makes for a 2013 film. See? I don’t mess around down in the FRSR&D Lab. I promise I have your best horror interests in mind. So, with that said, let’s get to the list. Simply click on the title for my full review. Let’s keep things in perspective this year; if you’re leaving me a death threat over a film list, I feel like maybe you take this too seriously.
7. Insidious 2
