Top Horror of 2013

best_horror_2013_mainAfter scoring $41.9 million opening weekend for The Conjuring and then $40.3 million for Insidious Chapter 2, James Wan clearly dominated the genre box office, but with innovative heavy hitters like You’re NextThe PurgeMama and more in the mix, there was some serious competition climbing to the top of this chart.

The-Last-Stand-QuadThe John Dies at the End anti-piracy trailer is clever, amusing and sends a good message, but it’s still just shy of cracking the top three. In fact, it’s also just short of trumping this brand new poster for the film that uses alternative lettering to spell out the title – a tactic that’s even more effective after you’ve seen the film.

The Best Stuff

1. Monsters University Rose Bowl TV SpotMonsters University continues to win big with immersive marketing. First the film’s website made Monsters University feel like a real, tangible institution and now it’s got a TV spot to go along with it.
