Worst Horror Movies


The Top Ten

1 Jason X

While I do like the set designs and the design of uber jason, I just think this is one of the stupidest ideas you can think of for a movie. A serial killer frozen and woken up in the future? Really?

Damn bloody movie... The way jason kills everyone without asking is awesome

Never watched it but I know they made like 10 movies on Jason Voorhees and all were about how he killed people, died at the end and then got resurrected. Such a pointless series. - CharismaticKat

This is a bad movie, but I have seen many that were worse.

2 Seed of Chucky

That part where Chucky's son do martial arts in front of Chucky made me feel like it's a parody of a horror movie rather than an actual horror movie. It's a horror-comedy like Courage The Cowardly Dog but more ridiculous humor and more kid-friendly looking.

When did the doll get sperm in the first place? Chucky was a one and done deal, the most you can make is about two before it sucks.

Child's play 1 & 2 are great and child's play 3 was okay and bride of chucky was decent but seed of chucky is boring and strange. The characters are so lame and undeveloped. The movie is not chucky. - spodermanfan1000

Terrible movie.

3 House of Wax

Terrible mess of a film... Paris Hilton is awful. The original HOUSE OF WAX with Vincent Price is fantastic, so check it out if you have not seen it... Also this remake is such an insult to the legendary MR PRICE!

Terrible, pile of dung... If you want to see a fantastic film, see the original with Vincent Price... It is so good, and no Paris Hilton.

THIS MOVIE SUCKS AS HELL! - guitarfreak123

What this movie was amazing, are people that dumb

4 Jaws: The Revenge

First one was amazing, the second was still good. The third was terrible, but still fun to watch. This one was boring.

Yeah somebody put it on this list to vote please

What about The Last House On The Left 1972 Version

Jaws 1: Phenomenal
Jaws 2: Meh
Jaws 3: Mediocre
Jaws The Revenge: Unbearable - spodermanfan1000

5 Psycho (1998)

And the award for Most Unnecessary Remake goes to... - CloudInvasion

A copy, no need to say anything more


6 Troll 2

They're eating her! Then they're gonna eat me! OH MY GOD!

Title says it all, this movie is a troll

This is probably the worst horror movie I saw, stupid and unrealistic. - AlienKing

The only thing this movie was good for was the meme.

7 Exorcist II: The Heretic

Why is Jason X, Halloween, AND SEED OF CHUCKY at the top, Halloween started slasher thrillers, and Jason X was gore-filled. AND SEED OF CHUCKY IS EPIC AND HILARIOUS. - marlonacott

I can't even go watch the first one without being horrifyingly scarred.

I wouldn't say its one of the worse but its definitely not a good movie. - spodermanfan1000

This is one of the worst movie sequels ever.

8 Paranormal Activity 1

The first one was pretty good it's the new ones that suck - Himalayansalt

Extremely boring and not interesting or scary at all. - MidKnight

Not even close to being scary just boring - spodermanfan1000

What does Y stand for kids? That's right! Yawn. - UnlawfulMatron

9 Leprechaun

I wuz on the fone while my gf is crying watching this on some tv channel she tells me to turn it on shes scared so I do. sum midget is bouncing off a dudes face with a pogo stick I laughed and she asked wut was funny. I told her I liked the midgets costume he looked like the lucky charms dude. I got dumped stupid movie

I don't hate the movie, but still, I have to say it's not scary at all. And to think it's horror... Who in the right mind would find this remotely scary? There's nothing horrifying about it. Nothing at all. Whoever came up with the idea must not know what "scary" means.

Interesting fact - I loved some scenes in Leprechaun 2, 3 and 4 but really hate everything about original one. This film was boring as hell and its humor was idiotic - Alexandr

I actually liked this movie. don't get me wrong its one of the worst films ever created but its one of those films where it's so bad that its good

10 Human Centipede

Who wrote this, honestly? It's corny and sickening. A Psycho doctor captures three young people and sews them together mouth to anus. And the poop scene is just GROSS! Should be in the top ten!

This movie is perfect to show your child when they're ready to learn about insects and how the human and nature are oh so similar! I showed it to my child who learned about the biology of the human then and how the digestive system works! I'm glad to say that this movie helped my 7 year old son on his biology quiz last week. We loved this family friend flick!

Visitor, I really hope you were being sarcastic, because The Human Centipede is definitely NOT family-friendly. - RiverClanRocks

The first human centipede was good, but they just kept milking the franchise for money

I saw this when I was 13 and I found it more boring than scary

The Contenders

11 House of Wax (2005)

Why is this film double-listed on the list?

This remake is an insult to the Vincent Price classic from 1953

It was not even horror - Ananya

12 Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers

They have Paul Rudd?

No wonder

13 Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday

Its just downright stupid okay no need for an explanation

14 Sharknado

Was a funny awful movie, but then the sequels came as sucked that away. Officially now one of the worst films ever made.

It should be a crime this is not 1, it should be, it shouldn't even be considered a movie, it's visual garbage. - LukeTargaryen

Worst movie, crappy acting, crappy visuals, crappy plot, worst movie ever.

Started off as a novelty, but cgi sequels really dragged this franchise down the toilet, was it my imagination or did several of the characters from z nation appear in at least one of them?

15 Haunted House (2004)

I watched it was scary when I was just born know its just WEIRD

16 Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation

Sounds like they decided to mix The Texas Chainsaw Massacre with Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Yeah and they made Leatherface look like a woman or Michael Jackson

17 Attack of the Killer Tomatoes

This is a spoof film

Wow, a movie about giant killer tomatoes. Isn't that horrifying? By the way, I'm saying this sarcastically.

I have no words to describe how stupid this movie is

Oh no, Killer tomatoes, I'm so scared...HA! HAAA! THIS IS SO STUPID!

18 Halloween: Resurrection

This movie is so bad, I can't even explain it. It ruins the absolutely beautiful ending of Halloween H20. Not to mention it has Busta Rhymes (yes, THAT Busta Rhymes) beat Michael Myers with Kung-Fu, you just can't make this stuff up.

19 Halloween

Why is this movie on this list? What? Halloween is a fantastic horror film... It was groundbreaking. This film manages to frighten without showing any blood, and it is a lot of what we do not see that is scary. In this day and age of torture porn, and constant violence in mos horror films, I find myself wishing for more movies like this. Halloween is still as fantastic today, as it was when it premiered... It also helps if those viewing have a longer attention span then a gnat!

Why is this here? I love this movie. It's definitely a lot scarier than Leprechaun. Leprechaun isn't even remotely scary. How can anyone even call that one horror? Michael Myers is a real killer! He is scary!

Halloween DID spawn slasher films, but that's not a bad thing. Some of them were great! A nightmare on elm street, Texas chainsaw massacre, Friday the 13th, and scream were huge smash successes for the movie industry.

Actually, Texas Chainsaw came out before Halloween. Anyway, I keep hearing people say they don’t like this movie because it’s slow and outdated. I think those people are full of **it! The only reason people don’t like it, is because it’s very creative, suspenseful and unpredictable, especially the first time it’s seen. People want the same stereotypical plot every time they watch a horror movie. A bunch of dumb people running around like “a chicken with their cut off”, getting slaughtered. The whole thing makes me sick!

20 Jaws 4

This is already on the list

21 Anaconda

My anaconda don't want none unless you got buns, hun.

Wow people, you are so stupid

22 I Spit on Your Grave
23 The Hills Have Eyes II
24 Sorority Sister Slaughter (2007)
25 Grave Encounters
26 The Wicker Man

Who the hell put Halloween on the worst list? That movie is a classic.

Which version is this? The original or the remake? The original is awesome, the remake with Cage is bad, really bad.

The original is a masterpiece..The remake is pure trash.

Original was a great move
Nicholas Cage remake is bad and that's an understatement

27 Children of the Corn

Whoever watch this CORNY movie, should get their eyes checked! This horror film is the lamest and boring of all time! Plus, all of its sequels sucks!

Don't let these movies lower your opinion of Stephen King. He still writes some very good books/movies. And I love Stephen King!

What was even weirder about this movie was that explosion with the animated cartoon face.

Children of the corn is a GOOD MOVIE PEOPLE

28 Don't Be Scared (2006)
29 The Cabin In The Woods

This list is excellent. But Cabin In The Woods would be #1 and House of Wax #2 in my opinion.

Cabin in the Woods is amazing horror for this age in cinema.

What? This movie was awesome! I think Marty is what made it even better though

30 Two Thousand Maniacs
31 Dr. Giggles

Who would name horror movie that

32 Leprechaun: In the Hood

The leprechaun series is generally entertaining, apart from this lame effort, which clearly is the rotting apple in the basket, cheaply made, with a rushed feel about, if you liked the leprechaun series, then avoid this one, it will leave you on the disappointed side.

33 Black Sheep

This is funny videos not horror - SpencerJC

It's not horror what the hek

34 Leprechaun: Origins

This movie is terrible from the very beginning all the way to the end! This definitely deserves a 0% rating. Awful!

35 Saw V

It was good, I just wish they would have made it a T.V. series on HBO or something instead if making 7 movies

This was a good movie what

Easily the worst of the series. - InsertNameHere

This wasn't bad!
I liked this so much, I watched it twice, and I was more entertained during my second watch.
I love John Kramer's quotes.

36 The Shining

Anybody who would put this movie on the list is an idiot! I guess the millenniums have no clue to what a good horror movie is.

No jump scares, almost no on-screen deaths, characteristics of drama, the ghost scenes were totally awful and no scary at all, boring until the end. Only there there was the action that all horror-funs love.

"no jump scares" just shows how little of a taste you have in music - imabigpotato

The book was better - blackflower

37 Most Likely to Die

This movie... just no. Acting was poor and Mask was not even creepy. To much sex and just awful. This should be #9

38 Alone in the Dark

This should be #1. It's not even trying to be scary at all. That and it ruined one of the best horror video game franchises.

39 Prom Night

Not scary at all! Just plain stupid and very predictable!

Original was way better

40 Jaws 3D
41 Skeleton Man
42 Dreamcatcher

The best horror ever

43 The Hills Have Eyes (2006)

original movie was masterpiece. This remake was utter garbage with No Talent actors and primitive dialogues. Nonsense - Alexandr

The Weeknd made a song about how bad this movie is. - AlphaQ

This actually was pretty good

44 The Fun Park (2007)
45 The Final Destination

Sucks too much bloody human parts and deaths cuts in half - SpencerJC

This Franchise Is Just To Goofy well...The 5TH Movie is taken more seriously I guess...Anyway I Take SAW Anyday - WWEWBMortalKombatFan

46 Halloween III: Season Of The Witch

This is by far the worst of the Halloween franchise. It's not even scary, it doesn't even have Michael Myers, and it makes no sense. It's crap from start to finish! I will never make the mistake of watching this again!

While it certainly is the black sheep of the franchise, it's scolded for the wrong reasons. It's best viewed as a stand-alone film rather than a sequel.

For anyone who can't get passed the fact Michael Myers isn't in this one, has no open mind whatsoever.

I hate this movie same with the 1999 the Blair witch project

47 Season of the Witch

I liked this movie.

48 The Blair Witch Project

This should be in the top ten worst... Overrated, over hyped garbage. I actually walked out of the theater half way on this one... And I usually never walk out of a movie.

The ending made no sense

Hated it.Shut it off half way.

49 Jack Frost

It is not even a real snowman, it is obviously just plastic and the CGI is HORRIBLE.

Look this up - JackFrost

50 Stephen King's It

Actually, this is one of the best horror movies ever made!

I don't find it really scary, but it has a good plot.

By far the worst... pretty unrealistic. And it is nothing

Please take this off the list! >:( This movie is AWESOME! (The 2017 one)
