[WATCH] These Are 10 Worst Horror Movies Ever
Horror films have a very dedicated fanbase. Many horror fans will sit through an awful, trashy, ill-conceived movie simply for love of the genre. But the films on this list will make even the most die-hard horror fan hang their head in shame.
A lot of the most successful scary movies were made for next to nothing. For example, Paranormal Activity grossed over $194 million worldwide on a budget of approximately $15,000. Many of the horror failures in recent years have been big-budget films, often remakes or sequels of once-lucrative franchises, or lame adaptations of comic books/graphic novels/video games that nobody really asked for.
#10 - The Fog (2005)
This had so much potential. Tom Welling, Maggie Grace & Selma Blair were all pretty well-known at this point, but even they couldn't save this predictable, cliche-riddled disaster of a remake.
#9 - Feardotcom (2002)
The Internet was still a relatively unknown and scary thing in 2002. Pre-social media, pre-YouTube. Heck, most of us were still using AIM on our parents' dial-up. This concept was probably groundbreaking at the time, but seems pretty silly now.
#8 - BloodRayne (2008)
The first of three (3!) video game adaptations on the list. Not even the trailer makes this look interesting.
#7 - Jaws: The Revenge (1987)
"This time...it's personal." Actually, it isn't. Jaws is a shark.
#6 - The Human Centipede III: Final Sequence (2015)
Turning prisoners into the largest known human centipede. That's about all you need.
#5 - Jersey Shore Massacre (2014)
Now...I don't think this one is supposed to be taken seriously. Wait, what? J-Woww was an executive producer??? Ok, it's definitely not supposed to be taken seriously. I couldn't stand Jersey Shore, so I'd probably take pleasure in watching a bunch of guidos get hacked to bits.
#4 - Birdemic: Shock and Terror (2010)
I legitimately LOLed at the CGI.
#3 - Alone in the Dark (2005)
Another bad video game made into a (somehow) worse movie. And Tara Reid plays an archaeologist. Need I say more?
#2 - House of the Dead (2003)
Sure...let's turn a first person arcade shooting game into a movie. And let's cram EVERY horror stereotype (young people, partying, booze, sex, creepy natives, bad acting) into about 80 minutes. A group of us willingly rented this after a high school dance. That relationship thankfully didn't last long.
#1 - Manos: The Hands of Fate (1966)
There's no actual trailer for Manos: The Hands of Fate, widely considered to be one of the worst movies ever produced. The title is awful ("manos" means "hands" translated into English) and the "suspenseful" music is even worse.
