I can’t even believe how happy I am to enter the New Year. These 2013 horror movie preview lits were a lot of work, but well worth it. Over the past several days we’ve shared with you all of the great genre films we’ll be seeing in theaters next year, everything from a new Evil Dead to a new Sin City and Machete.
With the end comes the indie films, and the leftovers, which includes various titles from Magnet, Anchor Bay, IFC, among a few that could end up premiering at the 2013 film festivals. We look forward to catching all of them and telling you guys what to look forward to. And with that we ask you, which ones are YOU most excited for? READ MORE
The Amityville Horror, Halloween 3D and Hellraiser never happened, again, so we sit back and watch as Dimension Films works out their 2013 slate without the iconic slashers.
Even without them, 2013 looks promising with the Blumhouse alien pic Dark Skies being the most intriguing. The question is as to whether or not they’ll get back into the groove and get us some franchise sequels, including a new Scream.
What film are you most looking forward to? READ MORE
Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema literally abandoned us in 2012, but hope to redeem themselves with a solid 2013 genre slate.
Dark Shadows was the sole WB release last year, and we’re still beginning for a new A Nightmare on Elm Street or Friday the 13th. Until then, Saw and Insidious director James Wan is set to blow our minds with The Conjuring, one of the most hyped horror films in years.
Read on to see what else Warners has in store for 2013! READ MORE
Open Road, headed by ex-Lionsgate exec Tom Ortenberg, has come out swinging. The studio is taking the genre by storm having already released The Grey, Silent Hill: Revelation 3D and Silent House.
Next year they’ll ramp things up having acquired not one, but 3 high profile genre films that all of us Bloody readers are jonzing to get our hands on.
We toast Open Road for their valiant entrance into theatrical foray and then pray it continues! READ MORE
Paramount has never been major for the horror genre, albeit they do carry this decade’s strongest franchise, Paranormal Activity.
This past October the fourth film was a huge failure (in terms of enjoyment), but were optimistic that they’ll square things with fans when Paranormal 5 hits theaters. Let us just hope nothing ends with a link like they did with The Devil Inside…
…and let’s be excited for their Latino Paranormal spin-off haunting theaters this spring. Now that could be a game changer! READ MORE
If there’s one studio that has always been good to horror fans it’s the Gate. Since Saw broke loose in 2004, the mini major has been pumping out genre product in fist fulls.
Last year was no different as they released the incredible high concept slasher The Cabin in the Woods, as well as the Sam Raimi produced Possession and the Battle Royale-esque The Hunger Games.
With 2013 on the horizon, things kick off with a new Leatherface movie, although we hold our breath for films like Nurse 3D and the festival favorite You’re Next. READ MORE
While Sony and Screen Gems typically pump out the horror, most of the genre films they release fail to deliver. This is because the heft of their releases are franchises that they hope to (and do) cash in on. Not to mention that many of the Screen Gems titles are made for kids, and not hardcore horror fans.
Last year saw another Resident Evil and Underworld, both “fine” by sequel standards, alongside Ghost Rider and Total Recall. There’s four incredibly bland franchise films.
2013 looks promising, though, as the first quarter sees not just Carrie, but also the hotly anticipated Evil Dead reboot; it’s an understatement to say that horror comes out strong next year. In fact, the success of Evil Dead could potentially propel the genre into a new age of dark horror. READ MORE
Much like Warners, Universal Pictures completely forgot about the horror fans in 2012.
This coming year is a completely different story as the legendary studio has quite a few titles that pique our interest, including an R-rated Riddick sequel and the return of Child’s Play‘s Chucky in the home video release of Cure of Chucky!
Check inside for the full slate of releases from Universal Pictures come 2013! We’ll have a new studio for you every day leading up to the New Year. READ MORE
