Following on from yesterday’s post I thought as we had gone through which horror movies are the best, that I would go through some of the ones that didn’t have quite the same effect.
Over the years we have seen our fair share of horrible horrors so I thought i would also share our list of worst horror movies that we have ever seen.
The Last Exorcism (2010)
A troubled preacher allows for his last ever exorcism performed to be documented only to soon discover that the family has intense problems. With the hype that surrounded the release of this movie I had great expectations and couldn’t wait to see it. I watched it in with great anticipation only to be hugely disappointed. It’s a documentary style movie, which i don’t really mind too much but the storyline is pointless and boring with very little horror factor in it at all. I am a big chicken when it comes to anything involving demonic possession and this movie did not scare me one bit. That and the ending made no sense to me what so ever.
House of Wax (2005)
After camping out for the night six teens find themselves stranded near a mysterious wax museum. Can they survive or will they end up being the new exhibits? This movie is weak, sure it has some blood, guts and gore but that’s about it. The acting isn’t great, it has no real scare factor and most of the movie is just downright boring.
The Exorcist 2 – The Heretic (1977)
Teenage girl, Regan, finds herself tormented by the demon who once possessed her. I expected so much from this movie as I consider The Exorcist to be the most terrifying horror movie i have ever seen. This has to be the worst sequel ever made. I watched this on tender hooks having been petrified for weeks after the first movie only for it to be a complete anti climax that i even had to ask, ‘Was that it?’
5. One Missed Call (2008)
People start receiving voice messages from their future selves depicting the horrid details of their deaths. This movie was so bad it was almost funny. A lot of what happens is pretty random and pointless to the point that I was bored watching it.
4. The Last Exorcism 2 (2013)
When Nell tries to move on with her life after the events of the first movie the evil entity returns to take possession of her once again. Ok, when I thought the Last Exorcism was the worst demonic possession movie i had ever seen i couldn’t have been more wrong. The first one was bad but this one was downright brutal. I should have known better after seeing the first one, but went ahead and watched it anyway. What appears to be a slow starter actually turns out to be a non starter because there is not one scary aspect to this film.
3. Amityville Horror (2005)
If you are a fan of the classic Amityville Horror, this one is going to leave you extremely disappointed. The Original which actually made it onto my Best Horror movies list is actually scary and disturbing. The same cannot be said for this one. This has to be the worst remake I have ever seen. I kept expecting something to happen, but it just never did.
2. The Rage: Carrie 2 (1999)
An outcast young girl is taunted by a bunch of high school bullies who turns out to have some very supernatural abilities. There is no scary aspect to this movie. At least ‘Carrie’ had it’s creepy moments to make it watchable. This was more amusing than scary. I would have no problem sitting alone to watch this movie…in the dark, it’s that tame. Only i don’t think i could endure actually having to watch it again. This one was not for me.
1.Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 (2000)
A group of college students embark upon ‘The Blair Witch’ tour only to come face to face with the Witch herself. This has to be the dumbest horror movie i have ever seen. The plot is non existent and NOTHING actually happens. I wasn’t a massive fan of The Blair Witch project but it was far superior to this one. I never fall asleep watching a movie, but i came close watching this one. Hands down this one is by far one hundred percent the worst (non) horror movie i have ever encountered.
Have you come across any more horrible horrors? Or do you love any of these movies, be sure to leave a comment and let me know.
