Best Mystery Films and Thrillers of 2013

Introduction

Another year has passed, and it's time for me to publish my film previews for 2013. Sadly, due to somethings going on in my personal life, I fell drastically behind to the point that I wasn't able to make my original deadline to publish these preview hubs. However, I'll be publishing the rest by the end of the week at the latest.

For those unfamiliar with how I construct these hubs, then I'll gladly explain. I essentially provide readers preview information about upcoming films for the new year, while also putting in a trailer when they become available.

Like last year, these film previews are separated by genre, to help readers better find the movies they're looking for. Also be sure to check your local listings, as release dates are subject to change.

Update 1: "Paradox", "Murder 101" and "Truth or Dare XO" were pushed back due to production delays.
