Top 10 Worst Theatrical Horror Movies of All Time

Happy Halloween! Let’s take a look at some of the WORST horror films that made it into theaters!

The Top Ten

1 Troll 2

Troll 2 is an atrocity! Are you serious? How did someone think something like this would turn out to be a good movie? Everything about it is trash! This is a movie that a lot of people like to make fun of. It’s considered one of the worst movies ever made. I can certainly see why. The actors don’t even try to give a good performance and the effects look terrible! Why is this even called Troll 2? They’re not trolls! They’re goblins! It seems as though whenever a movie has the word “troll” in the title, it turns out to be bad. I hated Trolls and A Troll in Central Park! Troll 2, however, is without a doubt the worst! There’s a lot of disgusting imagery! Disgusting imagery has always been something that I don’t like looking at. I tend to get sick very easily. Troll 2 is a bad movie, but I’m kind of glad that it exists. This is a movie that’s so bad that a lot of people have a fun time talking about how bad it is. People consider it as a movie that’s so bad that it ...more - MegaSoulhero

2 Sharknado

It annoys me why people like this crap. (I respect your opinion if you like this movie) - BlazingParasol

Sequels! This garbage managed to get sequels! How does that work? Also, it has a surprisingly high score on Rotten Tomatoes! Um, did we watch the same movie? Because apparently the movie I watched had crappy visual effects and a plot that is stupid beyond belief! Why would anyone green light this? I get that their intention is to make it intentionally bad so that it ends up being funny. I honestly didn’t even laugh at how bad it was! It was just bad! I’ve seen homemade films that look better than this! Not a single effect was believable! You can’t watch a movie titled “Sharknado” and expect it to be good. Maybe you’ll enjoy it for how bad it is, but for me, it was horrendous. - MegaSoulhero

3 Happy Death Day

This is a very recent film. I watched it in a theater and I wanted to walk out. This movie has been getting pretty good reviews and I don’t understand why. The characters are so unlikeable! The only character with any kind of development is the main character and she is such a jerk most of the time! I did not care about the things that happened to her! She has a love interest who serves no purpose other than being the love interest. We know nothing about him. There’s a plot twist at the end involving the killer and it is one of the dumbest plot twists I’ve seen in recent years! I saw it coming but it was still stupid. Nothing about this movie is good! It’s the second worst movie I’ve seen this year! It’s worse than the other horror film known as the Emoji Movie! - MegaSoulhero

4 The Wicker Man

A remake that didn’t need to happen! The original wasn’t that great, but it was definitely better than this crap! I mean, really? They didn’t even try here! The acting is bad, the dialogue is bad, and the story is bad! Nicolas Cage is usually a pretty good actor. This does not do him justice! If this had been the first Nicolas Cage movie I watched, I probably wouldn’t want to watch another one! He just doesn’t seem to do a good job in this film! But he did what he had to with a bad script. For a movie like this, I’d say not to watch it, but you actually should. Not because it’s good, but because it made me laugh. There are moments that are so bad that they were absolutely hilarious! Like Nicolas Cage in a bear suit and the “Not the bees” scene. This isn’t the worst Nicolas Cage movie to come out, but it’s still pretty bad. - MegaSoulhero

5 The Exorcist 2: The Heretic

My main problem with this movie is that it’s mostly boring. I thought the first Exorcist was great, but this one was uninteresting. Nothing about it was scary! It tries and fails at frightening us! Even Linda Blair hated it! And she had a chance dying for real in one scene! Yeah, they were willing to risk the life of an actress just to get a good shot. I hope it was worth it. Is it really a surprise that this is considered one of the worst sequels ever made? It is so bad! I feel bad that James Earl Jones was a part of this thing. Funny enough, this was released the same year as Star Wars. Anyway, this movie was clearly just a cash grab. I do not suggest that you watch it. - MegaSoulhero

6 Ouija

A movie based off of one of the dumbest things in existence! I have always hated Ouija boards! They’re a huge waste of time! Considering there’s no such thing as spirits, it’s completely fake! You’re just rolling some kind of magnifying glass thingy over a bunch of letters after asking questions to the spirits! That’s all it is! And obviously the spirits aren’t moving it because THEY DON’T EXIST! Oh, and the Ouija movie, it sucks! It’s an entire movie centered around a board game that no one plays anymore! You can tell that even the writers didn’t know how to make a movie like that! It’s such a stupid idea! Michael Bay can’t do anything right! Dora the Explorer is going to suck! - MegaSoulhero

7 Boo! A Madea Halloween

This movie made quite a lot of money. THIS movie! You might not consider it a horror movie, but that’s what it’s labeled as. A horror comedy. It came out last year. I didn’t watch it in a theater. I watched it for the first time last month and I hated it! Basically, Tyler Perry plays an old lady. Just from that information, I should’ve known this would be bad. He is insufferable in this movie! I did not laugh once during this thing! It has absolutely terrible dialogue! Also, apparently people like this movie for unknown reasons. And there are YouTube celebrities in this movie! I really hate when movies do that! Most of the time, YouTube celebs can’t act! The ones in here are no exception! And the movie got a sequel because of the amount of money it made! I’m not even gonna bother watching that one! This shouldn’t exist at all! This is one of the worst possible things you can watch on Halloween! - MegaSoulhero

8 Blair Witch

People are gonna hate me for this, but I really didn’t like Blair Witch! The Blair Witch Project I thought was an okay film and Book of Shadows I thought was bad. So it’s safe to say that I’m not a huge fan of this franchise. The third movie, however, was without a doubt the worst! It’s full of characters that I don’t care about and I didn’t care what happened to them! When making a found footage film, you gotta make sure that what we are seeing is believeable so it will feel more realistic. But here, I didn’t believe anything that was happening because none of the actors were giving good performances! One thing that really bothered me was the amount of shaky cam! It’s used so much to the point where we don’t even know what’s going on in a scene! Blair Witch is a really bad movie! Hated every minute of it! - MegaSoulhero

9 Saw 3D: The Final Chapter

I am a huge fan of Saw! The first one I thought was really good! The sequels were kind eh. But Saw 3D was REALLY bad! I haven’t seen the new Jigsaw movie yet in case you’re wondering. Saw 3D has such a lack of effort. After multiple movies, this isn’t very surprising. It’s a sign that the franchise needs to come to an end. This is an example of why. The traps in this movie are very underwhelming. They don’t even make the characters likeable. I didn’t care if they died! There was no sense of fright! There was nothing that captivated me! It wasn’t entertaining in the slightest! I’m honestly not sure if I want to see Jigsaw. But I doubt it’s worse than this. - MegaSoulhero

10 Sinister 2

I actually think the first Sinister movie is okay. But I can’t say the same for Sinister 2. One thing I really hate in horror movies most of the time is the amount of jump scares! Jump scares can work from time to time if they are done right. But here, they are done very poorly! And the movie relies on them a lot! It’s a very cheap way of scaring someone! Sometimes they’re not even scary! There’s a huge difference between scaring someone and startling someone! I also thought the kids in the movie couldn’t act. Kid actors don’t always give good performances, but the ones in this movie were on a whole new level of bad. Again, first Sinister is fine, Sinister 2 sucks. - MegaSoulhero
