2013: Evil Dead vs. The Purge
« on: September 16, 2018, 02:18:32 PM »
I don't know which film is more deserving of being included on a Horror Watchlist. One launched a series and the other launched a director's career in horror. I'm not much a fan of either though I do have a preference. 


Side question, is Under the Skin (2013) a Horror film?

There's a 2013 Evil Dead ?

I think that might answer your question, though "do non-horror fans know this movie exists" might not be the primary factor.

Under the Skin is arthouse with horror elements. Whether or not that qualifies it as horror depends on how restrictive one wants to be I suppose.

Evil Dead 2013 is the best in the series. The Purge very much is not. The former by a landslide.
