Chassity’s Best/Worst of 2013

Worst Movies of 2013

Mama: Scary Movie 5 didn’t need to parody this film. It was a joke on its own.

The Purge: I hate it when a trailer introduces me to a film with a very promising concept, but the actual film never really delivers. I was totally let down by this one. 

Curse of Chucky: I’m still trying to figure out why they bothered making this waste.

Dracula 3D: Horrendous garbage 

Texas Chainsaw 3D: So atrocious, so formulaic and cliched.

Paranormal 4: My hatred of these movies knows no bounds. Someone explain to me why people ever liked these movies, please.

Lords of Salem: I may be a little biased here. I’ve loathed this filmmaker since he decided to perform destruction on one particular classic horror film.

The House At The End of The Street: So, technically this one came out last year, but I’m including it because after seeing it again on DVD, I realized that this movie was, at best, “meh”.

Dracula 3D: Again, just awful.

Dracula 3D: What could possibly deserve the number one spot more than this. 

Best Movies of 2013

You’re Next: What an amazing final girl. Suspense is plentiful in this one.

Insidious Chapter 2: Even better than the first one. James Wan and Leigh Whannell show their brilliance yet again.

Warm Bodies: Just a cute movie. And a great message. 

Maniac: My favorite actor in an extremely gruesome horror movie? Yes, please. 

The Collection: Actually from 2012, but I can’t recommend it enough. Its protagonist, Arkin, may be my favorite new anti hero. (It also comes from the filmmakers behind the last 4 Saw movies, which is a selling point as far as I’m concerned.)

You’re Next Movie so nice I chose it twice. 

The Conjuring: So good, it’s just one long case for why I love James Wan.

Devil’s Carnival: Very little creeps me out anymore, but this sure does. It may be Darren Lynn Bousman’s best non-Saw work.
