Nato And Remy’s Last Stand: A Reflection On Our 2013 Horror Predictions
Alright, it’s no secret that my counterpart Remy and myself like to play psychic and predict what horror movies will be worth your while, and 2012 was no different. Perusing through the 2013 catalogue, we picked a handful of movies that really got our inner horror geek excited, from all different subgenres, and hoped to dazzle you with bold and righteous predictions – which of course didn’t hold true for half the films. Seriously, we didn’t back down, and even on the more independent features we watched, we rated them with the upmost honesty. If a movie isn’t worth your while, it doesn’t matter how much filming budget it had. A boring movie is a boring movie – no doubt about it.
In the same respect, won’t it be fun if we look back on the horror films both of us chose to redefine the genre? I’m not going to say all were a lost cause, because some mainstream horror movies seriously brought their “A-game” out, but there were some undoubted duds too. Poor Remy got stuck with more of those duds, just proving that I’m a far superior being and he’s nothing but a lowly serf. As a critic though, you learn to take the good with the bad. Sometimes you’ve got to just roll up your sleeves and get a little dirty in order to find the best and brightest horror has to offer.
With that said, let’s reflect on those 2013 horror movies that we totally predicted to rock your world, and let’s see how right or wrong we were…
