Top Ten Most Overrated Horror Movies


The Top Ten

1 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

2 Hostel
3 Paranormal Activity
4 Friday the 13th
5 Freddy vs. Jason
6 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

7 I Know What You Did Last Summer
8 Scream
9 Haute Tension
10 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

The Contenders

11 The Beyond
12 The Blair Witch Project
13 The Descent
14 Night of the Living Dead
15 The Grudge
16 The Shining
17 Drag Me to Hell
18 The Ring
19 Stephen King's It

Not really overrated. Hardly anybody mentions it. - jack2244
