But I will say that "A Cabin In The Woods" was rather fun for a recent horror film.
I don't quite get all the praise Cabin in the Woods gets. I thought it was only alright and definitely overrated.
Seems like you guys would be better off avoiding recent popular horror movies and maybe stick with less known indie horror. According to IMDb these are the highest rated horror movies released between 2010 - 2013 with no more than 500 votes:
House of Good and Evil (2013)
Only Lovers Left Alive (2013)
The Conspiracy (2012)
100 Bloody Acres (2012)
Harold's Going Stiff (2011)
I personally haven't seen any of these and I'm not sure about the availability of these titles, but maybe they are offering what you guys are looking for in recent horror movies.
