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 2014 on a new episode of Corpse Club!
It was the year when Annabelle returned to theaters in her own movie, when the violence of the Purge spread into the city streets and moviegoers took a deadly tour of the catacombs beneath Paris. 2014 was a year of many things, and for horror fans, it was another bountiful year on both the big and small screens.
Continuing our retrospective series on the 2010s, Tamika Jones, Derek Anderson, and Jonathan James take a look back at some of the memorable horror releases of 2014 and how they impacted the genre's future, including The Conjuring spinoff Annabelle, Kevin Smith's twisted body horror comedy Tusk, the enduring titular character in The Babadook, the citywide setting of The Purge: Anarchy, and the adventure horror elements of As Above, So Below.
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!
