There tends to be a lot of overlap in year-end movies lists, with the same 10 or 15 movies turning up time and time again.
You will not see "12 Years a Slave" and "American Hustle" on this list, though. (For that, turn to our list of The 25 Best Movies of 2013.)
This is a list of the movies this year that didn't get the critical (and in some cases, audience) support they needed, yet are well worth your time. The criteria we used: All films included needed to have an approval rating of 75 percent or less on the go-to reviews aggregators).
If you missed them in theaters, check them out on DVD, Blu-ray or on-demand. They might just surprise you.
13. "You're Next"
Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 75 percent
A violent cross between "Funny Games" and "August Osage County," this home-invasion horror movie should have been a summer sleeper — but wasn't, grossing only $18 million at the box office. A family reunion goes awry in a fancy country house as one by one the family members are felled until a female guest (Sharni Vinson) goes all survivalist on the violent villains. Make this smart shocker the next addition to your queue. — Thelma Adams
12. "The Iceman"
Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 67 percent
