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 2013 on a new episode of Corpse Club!
It was the year when moviegoers watched blood fall from the sky. It was the year when two James Wan films were released, when Chucky returned after a nearly decade-long hiatus and the ominous warning sirens of The Purge were first heard in cinemas. 2013 was a year of many things, and for horror fans, it was a great, game-changing year on both the big and small screens.
Continuing our retrospective series on the 2010s, Scott Drebit, Bryan Christopher, Derek Anderson, and Jonathan James take a look back at the memorable horror releases of 2013, including the return of Charles Lee Ray in Curse of Chucky, the introduction of another deadly doll in The Conjuring, the hive mind zombies of World War Z, the star-studded cast of Hatchet III, the unforgettable segment in V/H/S/2, and the blood-soaked showdown between Mia and the Abomination in Fede Alvarez's Evil Dead.
The co-hosts also reflect on horror television from 2013, from enduring shows such as American Horror Story: Coven and The Walking Dead to new arrivals Hannibal and Bates Motel, and they also take a look back at video games released that year, including The Last of Us, Aliens: Colonial Marines, and Dead Rising 3.
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!
