With a decade of monumental horror coming to an end, we pay homage to the genre's recent past by looking back at the horror releases of 2012 on a new episode of Corpse Club!
It was the year when "Gangnam Style" took YouTube by storm, when the Twilight film series came to an end and The Hunger Games began on the big screen. It was the year when Bane set out to break Batman’s back and Gotham's spirit. 2012 was a year of many things, including another year of great horror.
Continuing our retrospective series on the 2010s, Scott Drebit, Tamika Jones, Derek Anderson, and Jonathan James take a look back at the memorable horror releases of 2012, including the introduction of Bughuul in Sinister, the return of Alice (and other familiar faces) in Resident Evil: Retribution, the haunting feature film debut of Richard Bates Jr., the divisive Alien prequel Prometheus, and the meta monster madness of The Cabin in the Woods. The co-hosts also reflect on horror television from 2012 such as American Horror Story: Asylum and Adam Green's Holliston, as well as the video games Diablo III, Resident Evil 6, and Alan Wake's American Nightmare.
So, join us on another installment of our journey through a decade filled with horror remakes, groundbreaking original films, binge-worthy series, and immersive video games. The 2010s may be getting ready for the grave, but thanks to the decade's immeasurable influence on the world of horror, there's no way it will rest in peace!
