The year of 2014 had not a huge array of horror movies released, but some interesting ones. Horror seems to be taking on more paranormal subjects and for many of us para geeks, that is a blessing. We are tired of axe murderers and we want the supernatural, mythical, legendary! Many of these are out on DVD. I went ahead and ordered "As Above, So Below" already. I have a thing for cave and underground horror.
