Top 10 Worst Horror Movies

 

1. TROLL 2
Watch TROLL 2 Online Troll 2 is a 1990 horror B movie directed by Claudio Fragasso and starring Michael Stephenson, George Hardy, Margo Prey, Connie McFarland, Deborah Reed and Jason Wright. Although produced under the title Goblins, United States distributors were skeptical about the film’s ability to succeed as an indie film and renamed it Troll 2 in an attempt to market it as a sequel to the 1986 Empire Pictures film Troll. The two films, however, have no connection, and no trolls are actually depicted in Troll 2. The plot concerns a family pursued by vegetarian goblins who seek to transform them into plants so that they can eat them. The film’s production was rife with difficulties, largely revolving around a language barrier between the Italian-speaking crew and English-speaking cast, and producer Joe D’Amato’s approach to low-budget film making. The resulting film is generally considered to be of exceptionally poor quality, and it is often called one of the worst movies ever made. Because of the film’s reputation, it has gained a very large cult following.
2. PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE
Watch PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE Online Plan 9 from Outer Space is a 1959 American black-and-white science fiction thriller film released by Distributors Corporation of America. The film was written, produced, directed, and edited by Edward D. Wood, Jr. and stars Gregory Walcott, Mona McKinnon, Tor Johnson, Vampira, and posthumously bills Bela Lugosi as a star. The film tells the story of extraterrestrials who are seeking to stop humanity from creating a doomsday weapon that could destroy the universe. The aliens implement “Plan 9”, a scheme to resurrect the Earth’s dead. By causing chaos, the aliens hope the crisis will force humanity to listen to them. If not, the aliens will then destroy mankind with armies of the undead. Plan 9 from Outer Space played on television in relative obscurity until 1980, when authors Michael and Harry Medved dubbed the film “worst movie ever made”. Both Wood and his film were posthumously awarded two of Medveds’ Golden Turkey Awards, as the Worst Director Ever and Worst Film, respectively.
3. BIRDEMIC: SHOCK AND TERROR
Watch BIRDEMIC: SHOCK AND TERROR Online Birdemic: Shock and Terror is a 2008 American independent romantic horror film written, directed, and produced by James Nguyen. The film stars Alan Bagh and Whitney Moore. Inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds, Birdemic tells the story of a romance between the two main characters as their small town is attacked by birds. Birdemic was made with no studio support, largely self-financed and produced through Nguyen’s Moviehead Pictures company for a budget of less than $10,000. The film has gained notoriety for its poor quality, with many critics citing it as one of the worst films of all time. After a limited theatrical release, the film gained a cult following and was picked up for distribution by Severin Films in 2010
4. HE HAPPENING
Watch THE HAPPENING Online The Happening is a 2008 American supernatural thriller film written, co-produced, and directed by M. Night Shyamalan that follows a man, his wife, his best friend, and his friend’s daughter as they try to escape from an inexplicable natural disaster. The plot revolves around a cryptic neurotoxin that causes anyone exposed to it to commit suicide. The protagonist, a science teacher named Elliot Moore, attempts to escape from the mystery substance with his friends as hysteria grips the East Coast of the United States. The film was advertised as being Shyamalan’s first R-rated film, and received mostly negative reviews from film critics.
5. EXORCIST II THE HERETIC
Watch EXORCIST II THE HERETIC Online The Exorcist might still be the most terrifying film ever made, 40 years after it originally had audiences vomiting down the aisles. There was no way that the inevitable sequel could possibly live up to that standard. However, no one could have predicted just how wildly off the mark Exorcist II turned out.
6. THE WICKER MAN
Watch THE WICKER MAN Online The Wicker Man is a 2006 American horror thriller film written and directed by Neil LaBute and starring Nicolas Cage. The film primarily is a remake of the 1973 British cult classic The Wicker Man, but also draws from its source material, David Pinner’s 1967 novel Ritual. The film’s plot concerns a policeman named Edward Malus who is informed by his ex-fiancĂ©e Willow Woodward that their daughter Rowan has disappeared and asks for his assistance in her search. When he arrives at the island where Rowan was last seen he begins to suspect something sinister is afoot with the neo-pagans who reside in the island. The film received overwhelmingly negative reviews from film critics at the time of its release; critics pointed to the film’s unintentional hilarity, weak acting, and poor screenwriting. The film was also a financial flop, grossing $38 million against a $40 million production budget. Since release, it has developed a cult following over the years as an entertaining unintentional comedy. Cage dedicated this film to his friend Johnny Ramone, the guitarist of the band The Ramones, who had died in 2004.
7. MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE
Watch THE MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE Online Maximum Overdrive is a 1986 American science fiction action horror film written and directed by Stephen King. The film stars Emilio Estevez, Pat Hingle, Laura Harrington. The screenplay was inspired by and loosely based on King’s short story Trucks, which was included in King’s first collection of short stories, Night Shift. Maximum Overdrive is King’s only directorial effort, though dozens of films have been based on King’s novels. The film contained black humor elements and a generally campy tone, which contrasts with King’s sombre subject matter in books. The film has a mid-1980s hard rock soundtrack composed entirely by the group AC/DC, King’s favorite band. AC/DC’s album Who Made Who was released as the Maximum Overdrive soundtrack. It includes the best-selling singles “Who Made Who”, “You Shook Me All Night Long”, and “Hells Bells”. The film was nominated for two Golden Raspberry Awards including Worst Director for King and Worst Actor for Estevez in 1987, but both lost against Prince for Under the Cherry Moon. In 1988, Maximum Overdrive was nominated for “Best Film” at the International Fantasy Film Awards.
8. ALONE IN THE DARK
Watch ALONE IN THE DARK Online Alone in the Dark is a 2005 German-Canadian-American science fiction action horror film, very loosely based on Infogrames’ popular video game series of the same name. Directed by Uwe Boll, the film stars Christian Slater as supernatural detective Edward Carnby and Tara Reid as the scientist assisting him. The film’s tagline is Evil Awakens. The film was panned by critics, and was a box office failure. It is often regarded as one of the worst films ever made. Despite the film’s nearly universal criticism, a 2008 sequel was produced, Alone in the Dark II, directed by Michael Roesch and Peter Scheerer.
9. NIGHT OF THE LEPUS
Watch NIGHT OF THE LEPUS Online Night of the Lepus, also known as Rabbits, is a 1972 American science fiction horror film based on the 1964 science fiction novel The Year of the Angry Rabbit. Released theatrically on October 4, 1972, it focuses on members of a small Arizona town who battle thousands of mutated, carnivorous killer rabbits. The film was the first science fiction work for producer A. C. Lyles and for director William F. Claxton, both of whom came from Western film backgrounds. Character actors from Westerns the pair had worked on were brought in to star in the Night of the Lepus, including Stuart Whitman, Janet Leigh, Rory Calhoun, and DeForest Kelley. Shot in Arizona, Night of the Lepus used domestic rabbits filmed against miniature models and actors dressed in rabbit costumes for the attack scenes. Before its release, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer renamed the film from its original name of Rabbits and avoided including rabbits in most promotional materials to try to keep the featured mutant creatures a secret. However, the studio itself broke the secret by issuing rabbit’s foot-themed promotional materials before the release
10. JASON X
Watch JASON X Online Jason X is a 2002 Canadian-American science fiction slasher film directed by Jim Isaac. It is the tenth installment in the Friday the 13th film series and stars Kane Hodder as the undead mass murderer Jason Voorhees. The film made $16,951,798 worldwide against a budget of $11 million. Thus far, it is the last appearance of Kane Hodder in the role of Jason Voorhees. The film was conceived by Todd Farmer and was the only pitch that he gave to the studio, having suggested sending Jason into space as a means to advance the film series while Freddy vs. Jason was still in development hell and is set in the future so as not to confuse the continuity of the series.
