Gore Whore's Best and Worst of 2012

2012 is done and over with and, in all honesty, not a great year for horror. Not for me anyway. Choosing five films to add to my "worst" list was a piece of cake but since I'm not a big Hollywood horror person, I didn't see a lot of great ones to add to my "best" list. That said, after much (and I mean MUCH) consideration, I was able to come up with what I think is a pretty solid list.


The Cabin in the Woods: Starring Kristen Connolly, Chris Hemsworth and Anna Hutchison

Five friends go for a break at a remote cabin in the woods, where they get more than they bargained for. Together, they must discover the truth behind the cabin in the woods.

The Loved Ones: Starring Xavier Samuel, Robin McLeavy and Victoria Thaine

A woman steals her abusive boyfriend's drug money for her three teenage daughters to seek better lives for themselves and a bloody pursuit ensues. 

Children of Sorrow: Starring Bill Oberst Jr., Hannah Levien and Whitney Nielsen

Children of Sorrow, a young woman embeds herself in a cult looking for answers to her sister's disappearance, only to find a dark secret within the cult.


The Innkeepers: Starring Sara Paxton, Pat Healy and Kelly McGillis

Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines: Starring Doug Bradley, Camilla Arfwedson and Simon Ginty
