Some may argue 2013 was a slow year for horror, there were some very bright points. The "Evil Dead" remake and "World War Z" being two of them, there were quite a few films of note in 2013.

Top grossing horror films in 2013 were "World War Z", "Warm Bodies", "The Purge", and "Mama".

It would seem in 2013, horror fans preferred zombies over paranormal, or vampire stories. "Warm Bodies", a runaway hit novel, won over fans early on, as the story of a zombie winning the heart of a mortal girl entranced teenagers and grown ups alike. Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer's chemistry onscreen was delightful and really breathed life into the plot.

The most anticipated horror movie, the"Evil Dead" remake, garnered mixed reviews from fans old and new, of Fede Alvarez's re-imagining of Sam Raimi's low-budget classic. Giving a bold sub context to the story, and keeping with the gory tradition of the classic first run, the script seemed respectful of what fans loved of the first one, yet gave it a new look with the actors giving their all. At the end of the film, after the credits roll, viewers will get a very surprising cameo which is worth sitting through the film, like it or not.
