Horror Movies 2013 – Guide


Starring: Ryan Kwanten, Amy Smart, Leslie Bibb, Jamie Chung
Director: Takashi Shimizu
Released: TBC

Passengers, including a newly engaged flight attendant (Chung), a girlfriend with a secret, a controlling newlywed, and a woman with a unique perspective on death (Scout Taylor-Compton), encounter a supernatural force on board the claustrophobic Pacific Flight 7500. Soon they must choose whether to band together or look out for themselves. From the director of the American version of ‘The Grudge’, one of the few movies to give me a genuine sweat of fear, hopefully he can deliver a similar experience here.

The Green Inferno
Starring: Kirby Bliss Blanton, Daryl Sabara, Magda Apanowicz
Director: Eli Roth
Released: TBC

Student activists from New York City travel to the remote jungles of Peru in order to stage a protest but instead encounter a tribe of cannibals. This is the first movie Eli Roth has directed since ‘Hostel: Part II’ five years ago. It’s clearly inspired by the macabre masterpiece ‘Cannibal Holocaust’ in which a small group of reporters go to the Amazon in search of the last remaining cannibal tribe. Roth’s shoot is guerrilla, filming in a remote tribal village in the Peruvian jungle using actual tribesmen as extras, with a tiny crew and basic living conditions. Given the subject matter and director this could be a very grim movie. Anyway it’s good to see Roth back behind the camera and this should be applauded for being daring …even if it’s really another remake.

Starring: Daniel Radcliffe, Juno Temple, Max Minghella, James Remar
Director: Alexandre Aja
Released: TBC

Radcliffe (with American accent) portrays a man who wakes up after a drunken night to find two horns growing from his forehead and the demonic power to compel people to confess their sins and give in to their impulses. He’s also the prime suspect for the r*pe and murder of his girlfriend (Temple), so sets out to discover who was responsible. This is based on the well-reviewed book by Joe Hill (son of Stephen King), and helmed by the director of ‘High Tension’ and ‘The Hills Have Eyes’ remake. The strong cast, concept and director make this my one of my most anticipated.

    I’m all about the horror movies and cant wait for this years releases. I’m particularly keen to see: World War Z, Evil Dead, Chainsaw Massacre, Horns, The Conjuring, Carrie, Lords Of Salem. Insidious is in my top 5 favourite horror movies so I’m keen to see what James Wan and crew do with Chapter 2. Mama also looks interesting and I like how Daniel Radcliffe has taken the horror route after the overshadowing Harry Potter role, so I’ll be giving Horns a good watch at the cinema when (or if) it comes out to cinemas in Australia.

      Yes, fingers crossed for ‘World War Z’, has such potential. You kinda get two ‘Insidious’ sequels this year with ‘Chapter 2’ and the very similar-sounding ‘The Conjuring’ from the same director. I’m a bit surprised by the dark route Daniel Radcliffe has taken post-Potter. That series got progressively darker, and when it finished he just kept going.

        So true with the Insidious sequels. When I saw Patrick Wilson and James Wan attached to The Conjuring I literally thought they’d just changed the name of Insidious chapter 2.

        I was also intrigued by Radcliffe’s decision to go Horror post-Potter. You would have thought he might have played it safe with some drama or even comedies, but his gone the opposite direction and I appreciate that. In Australia, not many horror movies get released in the Cinema (barely got Cabin in the Woods here at all). The market is usually saturated by Action/Drama/Comedy, but with such a big name attached to these horror/thriller movies that he’s doing, there might spark more of an interest for Horror films in 2013 within the Australian mainstream.

    I’m most interested in You’re Next. Texas Chainsaw sucks. Plus what the hell happened to ‘Massacre’? Is the target audience for this now so dumb it can only manage two word titles? The same thing happened to the Silent Night Deadly Night remake. “Duh what’s a massacre? They shouldn’t gotta have such long titles and all the dialogues that suck so bad. Silent Night and Texas Chainsaw is more better.”

    “The Conjuring”;”Insidious 2″;”Texas Chainsaw 3D”;”World War Z” and “7500” will be the best horror movies of 2013. I also want to watch “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters”; “Aftershock” and “Warm Bodies”.

    I hate to sound like a jerk… but hey, no one else cares so… The last horror movie that gave me any feeling of fear was Martyrs.. and it wasn’t even fear, it was more like “hmm… that’s unpleasant” Who has a Good Horror movie from 2013 that will terrify me?

    Great list! The new TCM was great, as was Evil Dead. The Employer is a great indie horror flick, picked it up at wal-mart this morning, and was shocked!

    “John dies at the end” bored me really, I didnt finish that movie. “Evil Dead” the same, just slashing and no suspense at all. “Mama” was ok for me but I dont recommend it to friends. “The Haunting in Connecticut”and “Dark Skies” were not bad eighter.
    But the “The ABC’s Of Death” Wow, that was true world cinema 🙂 Loved it! I look forward to “Black Rock”. I like movies with suspense en good psychology, and actually I’m done with zombies and other supernatural bullsh*t 🙂

    Saw WORLD WAR Z and… Eh. It wasn’t that great, in my opinion it was way rushed and went by too fast, plus if you haven’t read the book it’s slightly hard to keep up and to top it off the acting wasn’t spectacular.
    If you wanna see a good movies watch THE PURGE (more of a thriller) I swear you won’t regret it, one of my favorite movies of all time now. 🙂 And MAMA was pretty good. The beginning really intrigued me and the rest of the movie kept me entertained, which most movies usually don’t

    The 2013 horror movie I would recommend is VHS 2. For last year, watch The Bay.

    haven’t seen a really good horror for years. I’ve seen some decent ones. I like psychological horror rather than the all too predictable Zombie, slasher genre. In recent years i’ve enjoyed The Paranormal Activity franchise ( not blown away by it ), The Ward was ok, Insidious decent enough. One movie i’d advise people to steer clear from would be The Purge. I felt the concept was fantastic and i was hoping for anarchy and mayhem, what i got was an all too predictable All American “Oxo” family ( who at times you’d think had never experienced The PURGE before )not knowing their way round their own house while a total stranger seemed to be able to hide with ease in a strange house which he’d never been in before. The ” bad guys” outside automatically seemed to know when to gesture to the security cameras just as the family were watching them. The script was poor, the acting poor, plot overly predictable. Avoid The Purge at all cost (and ATM-don’t even get me started on that nonsence)
