Top Ten Worst Movie Series

Sometimes when a movie comes out, it's not what we wanted. And sometimes to make matters worse, a sequel happens. And more sequels follow. Why? Why do we continue getting movies in a series we didn't ask for? Who knows. This list compiles the worst movie series that just wouldn't (or won't) go away fast enough for out liking. Please note that not all series on this list have to be entirely made up of bad movies (there's usually a good movie at some point in a franchise, at least).

The Top Ten

1 The Twilight Saga



Since Harry Potter was the best movie series franchise of all time, Twilight was just opposite to the best. Sparkly vampires, sissy love triangles, weird animated special effects and most of all: boring plots. Glad this so-called "series" was dead after the final movie and I don't want to hear a new movie in the future.

A crappy and cliche story, look it up on the urban dictionary and see all the reasons. Bad acting, bad plot, bad dialogue, bad character, super predictable, it's just a stupid love triangle. - missyweirdo

2 Tyler Perry's Madea

It's not even funny - missyweirdo

3 Transformers

You gotta admit that after the first film, the series looked promising. How wrong we were. - PositronWildhawk

Yeah. The first film was pretty promising. The first sequel was (in my opinion) the worst, while 3 and 4 rest somewhere in between. It's odd how 4 is considered to be the worst when, to me, it feels like the second best. Thank goodness Michael Bay has stepped down from directing the series. Maybe a new director will help breathe new life into the deflated franchise. - BKAllmighty

4 Resident Evil
5 Saw

What's the point to this saga besides making people puke their guts out? - Elric-san

So gory and gruesome I want to vomit just watching it. - missyweirdo

6 Alvin and the Chipmunks

There isn't really anything I have to say, except that Alvin is a waste of helium. - PositronWildhawk

It's official, there's gonna be a 4th film, I saw the poster at the movies, GOD HELP US ALL! D:

7 Underworld
8 Step Up
9 Final Destination
10 Harry Potter

What! This series is Great Why would they put this down for!

This series shouldn’t be on this list.

The Contenders

11 Scary Movie

This one, really, goes out to all of the lousy parody movies they can't seem to stop making these days. Date Movie, Epic Movie, Meet the Spartans, Superhero Movie, Disaster Movie, Dance Flick, Stan Helsing, Vampires Suck, A Haunted House, etc. - BKAllmighty
