Top Ten Most Overrated Horror Movies


The Top Ten

1 Friday the 13th
2 Saw

No no noo...The first Saw was / is slick, clever and imaginative. I would say that the sequels are overrated. They tried to use the shock tactics that were used in the first. I can't speak for others but for me personally, when I watched them, I was a little underwhelmed and maybe a tiny bit bored. But to say Saw is "overrated" is unfair (in my own opinion).
I do agree with you on Paranormal Activity, though. - Britgirl

3 Hostel
4 Paranormal Activity
5 Freddy vs. Jason
6 I Know What You Did Last Summer

It's not that great. It's a very cliché slasher film.

7 A Nightmare on Elm Street

No! The first one is amazing. I'd agree about the sequels though despite me still liking those but the first is brilliant. - jack2244

8 Haute Tension
9 The Beyond
10 The Exorcist

Oh god, this and Scream need to make the Top 10. They aren't even that great to begin with - jack2244

Well, that visitor can't respect my opinion. Maybe they don't realize that it doesn't fit my appeal. - jack2244

Watching this on mistake when I was young is why I rarely watch horror movies - jack2244

The Contenders

11 The Descent
12 Scream
13 The Shining
