Best Horror Movies and Monster Films of 2013


Another year has passed, and it's time to publish my annual preview hubs for the new year. Sadly, as some of my readers know, I fell drastically behind on my film reviews that I wasn't able to publish these preview hubs on time. However, I've decided to extend my own deadline until early this week, as I hope my readers will find these preview hubs informative and useful.

For those that aren't familiar with these previews, I'll briefly explain. Every year, I publish preview hubs for the following year with information and trailers for some of the new year's upcoming films. These previews are typically separated genre, and some of them do have trailers, while others don't. If a movie doesn't have a trailer yet, then it will be added to the preview hub as soon as it becomes available.

Also, please remember that release dates are subject to change, so be sure to check your local listings.

Update 1: "I, Frankenstein" was pushed by until 2014 due to production delays. Although some reports speculate that the film is being post converted into 3-D which might explain it.

Update 2: It's being speculated that "Paranormal Activity 5" could be pushed by to 2014 as well, but I haven't found any concrete evidence to confirm this, but I will be updating this hub again soon.

Update 3: "The Ganzfeld Experiment", "Shhh", "Paranormal Activity 5", and "Fury: The Tales of Ronan Pierce" were all pushed back due to production delays.
