The 2013 spring brought forth many great horror films, new and old. "Carrie," "Evil Dead," "Maniac," "The ABC's of Death," "American Marry," and "Lords of Salem" reigned the beginning of the year as some of the best in horror. This summer has three major horror debuts worth the $10 ticket.

It stars Leslie Bibb, Amy Smart and Ryan Kwanten.
Originally released in 2011, this July will be the first time "You're Next" will be viewable in American theaters.When the Davison family goes on a wedding-anniversary getaway, they soon discover they are not on the trip they signed up for. The family of middle-aged couples sits down for dinner at a large dining room table in the old mansion nestled in a forest clearing. Tranquility quickly shatters with the burst of an arrow through one of the large room's many windows, which impales and kills one of the guests. As more arrows continue to fly through windows the family, now screaming, desperately tries to cover points of entry from their mysterious attackers. When the lights go out throughout the home, and the animal-head wearing gang of killers enter, chaos erupts and floods through any remnants of peace that remain.
Experienced director of horror-films Adam Wingard, known for his work on "The ABCs of Death" and "V/ H/ S" directed the film. Simon Barrett, Sharni Vinson, Joe Swanberg, and AJ Bowen star in the film.
Hits theaters July 19, 2013Dark spirits taunt the minds of a family and two paranormal researchers to the brink of insanity in "The Conjuring." The film is based on the true story of Ed and Lorraine Warren. Both worked as paranormal researchers. Lorraine had gifts as a medium, able to detect the presence of spirits. Lorraine's gift comes with a toll, as each time she taps into her psychic ability, it wears her down, mind and body. The couple of investigators have never experienced a paranormal presence as strong and evil as the one they encountered in the New England farmhouse, which is why the story stayed locked away until now.
Producer Rob Cowan and director James Wan, who wrote the "Saw" movies and directed "Insidious 2," translate the dark story to film. Patrick Wilson, Vera Farmiga and Ron Livingston star in the film.
