A Rundown of the 13 Best Horror Movies I've Seen in the Past Year
[10 of 13]

(February 2014)

So, yeah, in a year that had some strong potential TV horror entries, no one could touch Hannibal.

True, Bryan Fuller’s exquisitely constructed mix tape adaptation of Thomas Harris’ serial killer novels was on its sophomore season, while most of the other TV horror contenders were freshman series, but hey, it managed to tie with Les Revenants for a ¡Q horror! slot last year, and they were both freshmen shows back then…

As we inch ever closer to a third adaptation of Red Dragon and the tantalizing possibility of a television rendition of The Silence of the Lambs (with Agent Schmarice Schmarling, if MGM can’t be bothered to play nice), Fuller and company continue to stage the most elegantly audacious and horrific serial killer scenarios this side of American network television.

If you haven’t gotten a, ahem, taste of Hannibal, you really ought to…

Parting Shot: Yes, this is a TV series and not a "movie," but ever since Dead Set carved out a ¡Q horror! slot for itself, television horror just refuses to stay dull and mediocre (as so many Hollywood horror titles turn out to be), so Hannibal gets a slot this year, just as it co-held a slot last year.
If it makes you feel better, just think of it as a multi-part movie...
