¡Qué horror! 2013
The Preliminaries

We’ve officially crept into October, so it’s that time of year once more to tally up all the candidates and make the final cut for the ¡Q horror! 2013 list.

Before we get into that though, I should run down a list of 7 more candidates that I felt merited some ¡Q horror! love, but alas, I again wasn’t able to find the time to write about them individually.

Noroi (Curse) (August 2005), dir: Kôji Shiraishi
Sinister (March 2012), dir: Scott Derrickson
In Their Skin (April 2012), dir: Jeremy Power Regimbal
The Possession (August 2012), dir: Ole Bornedal
Come Out and Play (September 2012), dir: Makinov
Among Friends (September 2012), dir: Danielle Harris
World War Z (June 2013), dir: Marc Forster

Thus, there were officially 27 candidates this year (or more accurately, the period between October 1, 2012 and September 30, 2013).
The final list contains 14 titles (there’s one tie), and after the rundown proper, we’ll wrap up with a list of the other excellent non-horror titles I saw in that same period.

So, without further ado…
