Looking Back: Tim Buel Picks His Top 8 Favorite Horror Films of 2013

Best Horror of 2013

As 2013 comes to an end, everyone is scrambling to put together their "Best of the Year" lists (trust me, I'm scrambling too). However when it comes to the genre I love, there is a fervent desire in me to make sure people are aware of some of the films I've been enjoying so much this year. Horror as a whole has been seeing a revival in the past few years, predominantly in the independent scene but even mainstream studios are getting it right every so often, and this pleases me. Horror films in the public eye aren't the most seat-packing bookings and often a lot of the great genre work throughout the year slips through the cracks.
