So what exactly do
Trolls 2, Creepshow 3, or Leprechaun in the Hood have in common? They’re all regarded as some of the worst horror movies ever.
But at least those were all straight-to-video.
And there's way too many of those floating out there to even keep up with, but what about the atrocities that were actually released theatrically? We've got you covered, and these are the 10 Worst Horror Movies ever made.
What horror movie do you think made No. 1? Click the video at the top of the article to find out, or if you'd rather read about our choices in further detail, just scroll on down.
Slide 1/10 – 10. The Wicker Man Starting off the list is the The Wicker Man. Not the 1973 original mind you. That’s a classic. But the 2006 remake, which is definitely not a classic (at least not for the reasons it intended). Even though it’s exceptionally awful, it did give us one of the best over-the-top Nicolas Cage performances ever, along with one of the best memes, and made torture by bee stings something that's truly hilarious.
Slide 2/10 – 9. Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 At No. 9 is Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2. While the Blair Witch Project was a cultural phenomenon that kickstarted the “found footage” genre, the sequel was bland, uninspired, and nowhere near as creative as the original. In fact, it was a little to "meta" and would have only been mildly interesting if people still believed that the Blair Witch was a true story, but by the time this was released - the cat was out of the bag.
Slide 3/10 – 8. Leprechaun 2 No. 8 is Leprechaun 2. Considering the only good thing the first Leprechaun movie did was give us Jennifer Aniston, is it really a surprise that the sequel was bad enough to earn a 0% on Rotten Tomatoes?? For what it's worth, this actually isn't the worst movie in the franchise ( Leprechaun 4: In Space, or Leprechaun: Back 2 Tha Hood probably tie for the worst), but this was thankfully the final film in the series to get a theatrical release.
Coming in at No. 7 is Creature. If you never heard of this one, you aren’t alone because it’s one of the lowest grossing movies of all time, and with good reason - it’s terrible. Also, if you weren't already aware: Terror has teeth.
Someone made a horror movie called Frogs. Is there really anything else you need to know?
Slide 6/10 – 5. The Devil Inside No 5 is The Devil Inside. Considering it only cost a million dollars to make yet made 100 million at the box office, it's doubtful anyone who made it cares that we think it’s a steaming pile of demon excrement. But seriously, it's really, really bad.
Slide 7/10 – 4. Cabin Fever No. 4 is Cabin Fever. Not Eli Roth’s movie that came out in 2003, which wasn’t that good to begin with. No, this is a remake of that movie. It used the exact same script as the original, yet somehow turned out like 1000 times worse.
Slide 8/10 – 3. Jaws: The Revenge No 3 is Jaws The Revenge. What a shame, right? Perhaps no other film franchise has seen such a sharp decline in quality as the Jaws franchise. What started as a trend-setting blockbuster slowly turned into a laughable abomination, each movie worse than the one before. With this iteration, it could sink no further. There’s literally nothing good about this movie at all, which is a bold statement considering it’s got Michael Caine in it.
Slide 9/10 – 2. One Missed Call A remake of the Japanese horror film of the same name, this is the worst reviewed horror movie on Rotten Tomatoes, second only to the forgotten bomb Ballistic: Ecks vs Sever. That's an impressive feat in a weird, sad way. So how come this didn't land in the top spot? Because believe it or not... we think there's something more deserving. Slide 10/10 – 1. Alone in the Dark And finally the worst horror movie of them all belongs to Alone in the Dark, one of the many video game adapted stinkers directed by Uwe Boll. In fact, a lot of his movies, like House of the Dead or Bloodrayne could have made this list but we didn't want to be too redundant, so we saved the top spot for this piece of trash fire.
