List of the scariest movies of 2013, as ranked by movie critics and horror film fans. The horror genre is one of the longest lasting types of films in the movie world for a myriad of reasons. The biggest of the reasons is that people love to be scared from the comfort of a movie theater seat. Instead of being afraid of real life fears like thieves in the night or spiders crawling on you in your seat, you can indulge yourself with fantastical horror stories that feature supernatural demons and unrealistically invisible serial killers. These films include scary monsters, relatable protagonists, and intense moments that will haunt your dreams.

What are the scariest movies of 2013? The horror movies released this year included original concepts, like The Purge, crazy remakes,like Evil Dead, and bone-chilling sequels like Insidious 2. These flicks introduced new audiences to the glory of scary movies while satisfying old horror pros. Whether they were seemingly normal girls, like Carrie, or flesh-eating zombies, the villains of these horror movies are among the best of all time.

The movies featured on this list are the scariest films 2013 had to offer, for those who have always loved horror movies or were just being introduced to the genre.
