1. The Babadook (2014)

Not Rated | 94 min | Drama, Horror

86 Metascore

A single mother and her child fall into a deep well of paranoia when an eerie children's book titled "Mister Babadook" manifests in their home.

Director: Jennifer Kent | Stars: Essie Davis, Noah Wiseman, Daniel Henshall, Hayley McElhinney

Votes: 177,343 | Gross: $0.92M

Horror as metaphor for grief, suffering and the ways in which they haunt and invade everyday life. The ending is a bit hackneyed, in respect to the sound design and some reveling in horror tropes. Maybe a bit too tidy too, but it works for what it's worth.

Far from the "scariest" horror of all time, instead it's just a great film that happens to be very creepy and very literal.

Best Horror Heavy: Real Dramatic Chops Variety- Essie Davis comes out of nowhere (at least here in America) to deliver a magnificent performance that captures Amerlia's shame and anger and love nearly effortlessly. It's nuanced and empathetic.

Strangely Affecting Guttural Noise Creep Out Award-"Babadook-dook-dook!" A line that could easily have been silly but is instead somehow quite unnerving.

2. Oculus (I) (2013)

R | 104 min | Horror, Mystery

61 Metascore

A woman tries to exonerate her brother, who was convicted of murder, by proving that the crime was committed by a supernatural phenomenon.

Director: Mike Flanagan | Stars: Karen Gillan, Brenton Thwaites, Katee Sackhoff, Rory Cochrane

Votes: 108,948 | Gross: $27.70M

Oculus is a movie full of atmosphere and rhythms. As directed by Mike Flanagan, there's a steady building undercurrent of dread at its core, something that works so gradually you forget how silly the initial premise is. Kaylie (a fun Karen Gillan) takes killing the eponymous mirror seriously, but she's full of wit and joy so it doesn't hang as needless portentousness on the audience. Tim (Brendon Thwaites), her brother, is the voice of reason that actually manages to goose the movie with some moments of genuine curiosity (is it the mirror that's crazy or them? It's actually an impressive feat that Flanagan makes you buy that these characters could indeed be crazy, and not just being used as unnecessary plot padding).

Edited flawlessly (also by Mike Flanagan), cutting between past and present on scenes that feel natural, all while building to a surreal and sustained climax of unease and terror. Even if it is a bit of letdown (the filmmaking makes you think you are watching something just a tad more exciting than it really is. It hits very familiar beats on its way to a predictable ending).

What's ultimately most impressive is that this movie full of unease and steady movements, and plot and character development (the movie casually asks questions about perception and reality, especially within the context of marriage; a point which Katee Sackhoff in particular helps drive home), and not based on any existing property, while also having an R rating (and not a very hard one at that; which is a compliment, evoking more like last year's The Conjuring) got a nationwide release. It's too bad it didn't do better at the box office, but the mere fact this exists as a theatrical movie is a good thing.

Spine-tingling Hypnofreakout Score Award- The Newton Brothers, with not a very diverse or far reaching score, but one that operates on the same level as the movie's pacing. The repeated use of snyth-y sounding "wuhb wuhbs" was genuinely hypnotizing and worked extremely well within the context of the movie.

It's Not That Gory, but Still Painful to Watch Award- Kaylie chomps into an apple, that turns out to be a lightbulb. Her horrified face as the sound changes to cracking glass and blood starts trickling out her mouth is enough to make your own mouth tingle in pain.

3. Housebound (2014)

Not Rated | 107 min | Comedy, Horror, Mystery

76 Metascore

A young woman is forced to return to her childhood home after being placed under house arrest, where she suspects that something evil may be lurking.

Director: Gerard Johnstone | Stars: Morgana O'Reilly, Rima Te Wiata, Glen-Paul Waru, Ross Harper

Votes: 30,126

A fun and funny trapped in a place maybe ghostly haunted house movie. Not terribly original, but there's some surprises to be had and it's also down with such goofy and sometimes creepy charm it's hard to resist.

Funny + Scary Together In Harmony Award- The scene that most perfectly captures this tricky balance is towards the end, when Dennis has a knife and is about to stab Amos trying to get in a door, who turns around at just the right time and thinks the knife is for him, to help him open the door. He nonchalantly grabs it and carries on. Brilliant.

4. Honeymoon (2014)

R | 87 min | Horror, Mystery, Thriller

65 Metascore

A newlywed couple finds their lake-country honeymoon descend into chaos after Paul finds Bea wandering and disoriented in the middle of the night.

Director: Leigh Janiak | Stars: Rose Leslie, Harry Treadaway, Ben Huber, Hanna Brown

Votes: 23,237 | Gross: $0.01M

Debut Shocker Film of the Year- Leigh Janiak makes a great intense little horror movie, that doesn't quite deliver in the end. It's a tense and at times riveting look at what happens after the white glow of marriage, when life kicks in and people continue to change and develop until you maybe don't recognize the person right next to you anymore.

5. The Purge: Anarchy (2014)

R | 103 min | Action, Horror, Sci-Fi

50 Metascore

Three groups of people intertwine and are left stranded in the streets on Purge Night, trying to survive the chaos and violence that occurs.

Director: James DeMonaco | Stars: Frank Grillo, Carmen Ejogo, Zach Gilford, Kiele Sanchez

Votes: 128,349 | Gross: $71.96M

Sometimes Sequels Are Better Award- A marked improvement over the original. Actually begins to explore themes, implications and realities of a Purge. It still goes about it in a rather straight-forward way, never going deep enough, but still it's fun and thrilling.

6. Starry Eyes (2014)

Not Rated | 98 min | Drama, Fantasy, Horror

49 Metascore

A hopeful young starlet uncovers the ominous origins of the Hollywood elite and enters into a deadly agreement in exchange for fame and fortune.

Directors: Kevin Kölsch, Dennis Widmyer | Stars: Alex Essoe, Amanda Fuller, Noah Segan, Fabianne Therese

Votes: 16,416

A not that new concept wants to be the horrific version but never truly delivers on its lurid premise. That's all there is, no surprises. It goes exactly where you suspect and would guess.

Posters Can Still Be Creepy and Badass Award- The original poster with Alex Essoe nearly naked surrounded by hooded figures and the Hollywood sign hanging ominously above is perfect. It sold me (and countless others I'm sure) without nary a trailer or a review. It can still be done people, stop with the *beep*

7. [REC] 4: Apocalypse (2014)

R | 95 min | Action, Adventure, Horror

53 Metascore

An ill-fated television reporter is rescued and sent on a voyage across the ocean, but she is followed by the deadly virus that has plagued her and numerous others.

Director: Jaume Balagueró | Stars: Manuela Velasco, Paco Manzanedo, Héctor Colomé, Ismael Fritschi

Votes: 14,734 | Gross: $0.00M

A fine conclusion to the [REC] saga, although Apocalypse may be pushing it. It's basically a kind of version of The Thing, with people trapped on a boat in the middle of the sea, no escape, worried about who's infected and if it's going to get back to the mainland. It's fun and concludes, although one may have hoped for a bit more ambition, especially considering the abandonment of the found footage that made the series famous.

8. Proxy (I) (2013)

Not Rated | 120 min | Drama, Horror, Thriller

57 Metascore

The life of three parents who have all shared the loss of a child. Motives are not what they seem and sanity is in short supply in this thriller.

Director: Zack Parker | Stars: Kristina Klebe, Joe Swanberg, Alexa Havins, Alexia Rasmussen

Votes: 3,710

The strangest hardest to figure out "horror" movie of the year. It's audacious, but unfocused, compelling, and yet also obtuse and distant. Props, but it doesn't quite work.

Strike Dos Times In One Year Award For Most Exciting Up and Coming Composers-Not as chilling or memorable as the Oculus score the Newton Brothers provided, but still a very solid and potent score that announces them as a duo to absolutely be looking out for in the future.

9. Night of the Wolf (2014)

Not Rated | 95 min | Horror

51 Metascore

When deadly beasts attack from the forest, it is up to a grizzled veteran to uncover what the residents of a secluded retirement community are hiding.

Director: Adrián García Bogliano | Stars: Nick Damici, Ethan Embry, Lance Guest, Erin Cummings

Votes: 6,253

A pretty solid old guy vs werewolves flick that uses old school makeup and costumes, and a scaled back premise to get across its point. It's not the most ambitious or surprising movie, but its effective and fun, and has a few solid performances from Nick Damici and Tom Noonan.

10. WolfCop (2014)

Unrated | 79 min | Comedy, Horror

As a series of strange and violent events begin to occur, an alcoholic policeman realizes that he has been turned into a werewolf as part of a larger plan.

Director: Lowell Dean | Stars: Leo Fafard, Amy Matysio, Sarah Lind, Corinne Conley

Votes: 5,707

Wolfcop, by all appearances, should be one of those parody movies with no good wit, none too clever and a just a whole bunch of juvenilia thrown at the screen in spouts of random blood-letting. This is mostly not that, thank God, it's actually played mostly straight and a lot of the humor comes from character and situation and not just gags. And even the gags are earned in their sparing use -- I'm thinking the first transformation scene using his member as the first thing to transform.

The practical effects are really good. Lou has a solid dry deadpan sensibility (and the amount he drinks is unholy).

Too short, and a seeming lack of ideas after a while (explaining the brevity) ultimately hurt this film and hold it back from true cult status. All the good characters are killed off or revealed to be bad guys. Willie steals all his scenes ("Street name: see you in a *beep* week." while goading Wolfcop into taking horse tranqs) and the bartender Jessica are treated poorly in the end and without much regard to their overall value to the film as a whole.

11. The Sacrament (2013)

R | 99 min | Horror, Thriller

49 Metascore

A news team trails a man as he travels into the world of Eden Parish to find his missing sister, where it becomes apparent that this paradise may not be as it seems.

Director: Ti West | Stars: Joe Swanberg, AJ Bowen, Kentucker Audley, Amy Seimetz

Votes: 15,810 | Gross: $0.01M

It feels wrong to call this a waste of Ti West's talents, or at least the strengths he's shown so far as a director, but that's kind of how it feels. A good chunk of that is the found footage aspect, although admittedly it does lend itself to slow burns quite well (West's specialty), but still, it just feels so prosaic and derivative. Gene Jones is perfection but the rest is mostly just, well broadly anti-personal.

Best Horror Heavy: Charismatic Cult Psycho- Gene Jones is perfection as said above. He's charming, sinister and riveting.

12. Annabelle (I) (2014)

R | 99 min | Horror, Mystery, Thriller

37 Metascore

A couple begins to experience terrifying supernatural occurrences involving a vintage doll shortly after their home is invaded by satanic cultists.

Director: John R. Leonetti | Stars: Ward Horton, Annabelle Wallis, Alfre Woodard, Tony Amendola

Votes: 128,967 | Gross: $84.27M

2 Halves From 2 Different Movies Don't Make a Whole Award-The first half (roughly) of this film is quite good, with subtle suggestions of late 60's paranoia (Manson) and a few effective scare scenes that so desperately do no belong with the dully unoriginal later half.

13. Wolf Creek 2 (2013)

Not Rated | 106 min | Action, Horror

44 Metascore

The outback once more becomes a place of horror as another unwitting tourist becomes the prey for crazed, serial-killing pig-hunter Mick Taylor.

Director: Greg McLean | Stars: John Jarratt, Ryan Corr, Shannon Ashlyn, Philippe Klaus

Votes: 16,229

If the original is an Australian Texas Chainsaw Massacre then this is the Aussie Nightmare on Elm Street 4. John Jarratt is still great, but man is this taken to the campiest most vamped up place possible. It would be more disconcerting if you didn't at least appreciate the fact that Greg McLean and co. were trying something different.

Horror Heavy Hall of Fame: Even In Lesser Sequels I Shine- John Jarratt reprises his role from the first film and he's just as great but in a different way. Not as scary, a bit more cracked Crocodile Dundee but he makes it work anyway.

14. The Town That Dreaded Sundown (2014)

R | 86 min | Horror, Mystery, Thriller

47 Metascore

65 years after a masked serial killer terrorized the small town of Texarkana, the so-called 'moonlight murders' begin again. Is it a copycat or something even more sinister? A lonely high ... See full summary »

Director: Alfonso Gomez-Rejon | Stars: Addison Timlin, Veronica Cartwright, Anthony Anderson, Travis Tope

Votes: 12,745

15. Deliver Us from Evil (I) (2014)

R | 118 min | Horror, Mystery, Thriller

40 Metascore

New York police officer Ralph Sarchie investigates a series of crimes. He joins forces with an unconventional priest, schooled in the rites of exorcism, to combat the possessions that are terrorizing their city.

Director: Scott Derrickson | Stars: Eric Bana, Edgar Ramírez, Olivia Munn, Chris Coy

Votes: 64,788 | Gross: $30.58M

A mostly tame exorcism thriller, but with a a nice procedural twist and a decent attempt at an ending even if it is just a big ol' "Here you go!" game of one upmanship.

Solid Gore In an Otherwise Tepid Exorcism Scene Award-The final exorcism sequence is the money scene climax, and it's not really that great or exciting until the demon rips off his own leg and begins munching on it right there as the exorcism goes on around it. Cool.

16. The Canal (2014)

Not Rated | 92 min | Horror, Mystery, Thriller

55 Metascore

A depressed and stressed film archivist finds his sanity crumbling after he is given an old 16mm film reel with footage from a horrific murder that occurred in the early 1900's.

Director: Ivan Kavanagh | Stars: Rupert Evans, Antonia Campbell-Hughes, Hannah Hoekstra, Kelly Byrne

Votes: 12,425

Some nice bits, but really a just another tedious exercise in the same old schlock. It's Irish and has an eye for color, but that doesn't excuse a mundane plot that doesn't take many chances.

17. Nurse 3D (2013)

R | 84 min | Horror, Thriller

29 Metascore

By day, Abby Russell is a dedicated nurse, but by night, she lures cheating men to their brutal deaths and exposes them for who they really are.

Director: Douglas Aarniokoski | Stars: Paz de la Huerta, Katrina Bowden, Judd Nelson, Corbin Bleu

Votes: 8,919

Wants to be some lascivious slasher flick about a killer nurse taking out bad boys, but just turns into Single White Female with a nurse who's a bit too obsessed with her protege even though she's probably not a lesbian (bi maybe?). CGI gore runs rampant, for the 3D, but it's still ugly and intrusive

Best Horror Heavy: Captain of the T&A Squad Variety- Paz de la Huerta as the titular sexy nurse. She's almost always bottomless (yes, you read that right), and almost topless just as much. She uses sex to kill, and looks to thrill, so it only makes sense.

19. At the Devil's Door (VI) (2014)

Not Rated | 91 min | Horror

47 Metascore

A real-estate agent finds herself caught up in something sinister when she has to sell a house with a dark past and meets the troubled teen who used to live there.

Director: Nicholas McCarthy | Stars: Ashley Rickards, Nick Eversman, Michael Massee, Mark Steger

Votes: 6,588

Climax undoes any good will built up by a few good scares and solid plotting.

Best Throwaway Scare of the Year (Or Maybe It Just Feels That Way)- The unzipping of a literal human suit to reveal the demon beneath. Just great and unexpected, all in shadow.

20. Cub (2014)

Not Rated | 84 min | Adventure, Horror

49 Metascore

Over-imaginative 12 year-old Sam heads off to the woods to summer scout camp with his pack convinced he will encounter a monster...and he does.

Director: Jonas Govaerts | Stars: Maurice Luijten, Evelien Bosmans, Titus De Voogdt, Stef Aerts

Votes: 5,064

21. When Animals Dream (2014)

R | 84 min | Drama, Horror, Mystery

54 Metascore

16-year old Marie lives on a small island with her seriously ill mother and her father, who takes care of the family. But suddenly mysterious deaths happen and Marie can feel something strange happening to her body.

Director: Jonas Alexander Arnby | Stars: Sonia Suhl, Lars Mikkelsen, Sonja Richter, Jakob Oftebro

Votes: 3,416

22. Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones (2014)

R | 84 min | Horror, Mystery, Thriller

42 Metascore

When a young man becomes the target of a malevolent entity, he must uncover its true intentions before it takes complete control of him.

Director: Christopher Landon | Stars: Andrew Jacobs, Jorge Diaz, Gabrielle Walsh, Gloria Sandoval

Votes: 37,705 | Gross: $32.46M

A decent attempt at a spin-off, but still forgettable and the same old *beep* PA meets Chronicle is just not that great of an idea.

23. The Taking of Deborah Logan (2014)

R | 90 min | Horror, Mystery, Thriller

An elderly woman battling Alzheimer's disease agrees to let a film crew document her condition, but what they discover is something far more sinister going on.

Director: Adam Robitel | Stars: Jill Larson, Anne Ramsay, Michelle Ang, Brett Gentile

Votes: 22,648

Another interesting premise, but so-so execution. A trend this year it seems.

24. As Above, So Below (2014)

R | 93 min | Horror, Mystery, Thriller

38 Metascore

When a team of explorers ventures into the catacombs that lie beneath the streets of Paris, they uncover the dark secret that lies within this city of the dead.

Director: John Erick Dowdle | Stars: Perdita Weeks, Ben Feldman, Edwin Hodge, François Civil

Votes: 68,878 | Gross: $21.20M

Awesome setting, initial set-up and such, blah execution and ending.

25. The Den (2013)

R | 81 min | Horror, Mystery, Thriller

48 Metascore

While studying the habits of web cam chat users from the apparent safety of her own home, a young woman's life begins to spiral out of control after witnessing a grisly murder online.

Director: Zachary Donohue | Stars: Melanie Papalia, David Schlachtenhaufen, Adam Shapiro, Anna Margaret Hollyman

Votes: 12,393

Solid ending, but most of the movie is thoughtless. It's like premise and then nothing, no other feelings or thoughts.

26. Life After Beth (2014)

R | 89 min | Comedy, Fantasy, Horror

50 Metascore

A young man's recently deceased girlfriend mysteriously returns from the dead, but he slowly realizes she is not the way he remembered her.

Director: Jeff Baena | Stars: Aubrey Plaza, Dane DeHaan, John C. Reilly, Molly Shannon

Votes: 18,451 | Gross: $0.08M

A smug, mostly unfunny zombie comedy, I guess.

27. Banshee Chapter (2013)

R | 87 min | Horror, Sci-Fi, Thriller

62 Metascore

Journalist Anne Roland explores the disturbing links behind her friend's sudden disappearance, an ominous government research chemical, and a disturbing radio broadcast of unknown origin.

Director: Blair Erickson | Stars: Katia Winter, Ted Levine, Michael McMillian, Corey Moosa

Votes: 8,368

Interesting at times, but fails to go anywhere new or exciting. Never capitalizes on its intent.

28. The Houses October Built (2014)

Not Rated | 91 min | Horror, Thriller

Five friends are stalked by a group of mysterious and disturbed individuals while on a road trip looking for the ultimate haunted house attraction.

Director: Bobby Roe | Stars: Brandy Schaefer, Zack Andrews, Bobby Roe, Mikey Roe

Votes: 7,325

An intriguing premise, undone by sloppy narrative and no direction.

29. Mr. Jones (2013)

PG-13 | 84 min | Drama, Horror, Thriller

38 Metascore

A young couple moves to the woods and soon finds their nightmares and reality colliding.

Director: Karl Mueller | Stars: Jon Foster, Sarah Jones, Mark Steger, Faran Tahir

Votes: 3,769

Almost an intriguing premise, but goes nowhere drunkenly and incoherently.

30. V/H/S Viral (2014)

R | 81 min | Horror, Thriller

38 Metascore

A Los Angeles police chase sends a fame-obsessed man on a wild ride to save his girlfriend from a cybernetic terror.

Directors: Justin Benson, Gregg Bishop, Todd Lincoln, Aaron Moorhead, Marcel Sarmiento, Nacho Vigalondo | Stars: Patrick Lawrie, Emilia Ares, Celia K. Milius, Steve Berens

Votes: 14,059 | Gross: $0.00M

Not even a shadow of the former entries. Listless, pointless, feckless.

31. Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead (2014)

R | 100 min | Action, Comedy, Horror

59 Metascore

Still on the run from a group of Nazi zombies, a man seeks the aid of a group of American zombie enthusiasts, and discovers new techniques for fighting the zombies.

Director: Tommy Wirkola | Stars: Vegar Hoel, Ørjan Gamst, Martin Starr, Jocelyn DeBoer

Votes: 20,897

What a disappointing movie. It seems wrong to say that it's boring and lifeless, considering what happens in it. But it's just not energetic or gleeful, its haphazard and clumsy, ugly and kind of dumb. Like really dumb.

32. Stage Fright (I) (2014)

R | 89 min | Comedy, Horror, Musical

39 Metascore

A snobby musical theater camp is terrorized by a blood-thirsty killer who hates musical theater.

Director: Jerome Sable | Stars: Minnie Driver, Meat Loaf, Allie MacDonald, Douglas Smith

Votes: 4,142 | Gross: $0.01M

A weird hybrid that just doesn't work.

33. Afflicted (2013)

R | 85 min | Horror, Mystery, Thriller

56 Metascore

Two best friends see their trip of a lifetime take a dark turn when one of them is struck by a mysterious affliction. Now, in a foreign land, they race to uncover the source before it consumes him completely.

Directors: Derek Lee, Clif Prowse | Stars: Clif Prowse, Derek Lee, Michael Gill, Baya Rehaz

Votes: 20,437 | Gross: $0.12M

One trick pony, with some admittedly neat special effects. Offers nothing new, and not a lot of logic.

34. Almost Human (2013)

Unrated | 80 min | Horror, Sci-Fi, Thriller

40 Metascore

Mark Fisher disappeared from his home in a brilliant flash of blue light almost 2 years ago. His friend Seth Hampton was the last to see him alive. Now a string of grisly, violent murders ... See full summary »

Director: Joe Begos | Stars: Graham Skipper, Josh Ethier, Vanessa Leigh, Susan T. Travers

Votes: 2,807 | Gross: $0.01M

Heart is in the right place, but still this movie is just terrible. Even the old school gore effects just feel tacked on and deliberate. And as old school as it wants to be, it looks just a like a low budget straight to video pic of today (shaky cam and ADD editing).

35. Extraterrestrial (2014)

Not Rated | 101 min | Horror, Mystery, Sci-Fi

38 Metascore

A group of friends on a weekend trip to a cabin in the woods find themselves terrorized by alien visitors.

34 Metascore

Directors: Matt Bettinelli-Olpin, Tyler Gillett | Stars: Allison Miller, Zach Gilford, Sam Anderson, Roger Payano

Votes: 15,630 | Gross: $15.82M

Take Every Horror Movie Premise and Found Footage It Award for Uninspired Incompetence- Rosemary's Baby found footage. Solid, but this movie absolutely not. The worst elements of all genres and tropes involved.

39. The Quiet Ones (2014)

PG-13 | 98 min | Horror, Mystery, Thriller

41 Metascore

A university professor and a team of students conduct an experiment on a young woman, uncovering terrifyingly dark, unexpected forces in the process.

Dull and wholly unoriginal or interesting in the slightest.

42. Leprechaun: Origins (2014)

R | 90 min | Fantasy, Horror

Not related to the previous Leprechain films. Two young couples backpacking through Ireland discover that one of Ireland's most famous legends is a terrifying reality.

Director: Zach Lipovsky | Stars: Dylan Postl, Stephanie Bennett, Andrew Dunbar, Melissa Roxburgh

Votes: 4,527

Seriously, WTF Was Anyone Thinking Award for General Incompetence- Nothing to do with leprechaun lore (not in any real sense, there's no gold coins or rainbows, just goblin things in Ireland), nothing to do with the previous films, nothing to do with basic coherence or originality or common sense, no sense of humor or sense of atmosphere, scares or blood-letting. Dreadful on nearly every conceivable level.
