21 Jan The 10 worst horror movies since 2000
We have all or more or less experienced a similar disappointment: renting a horror film in order to have a good dose of chills and pick up with a predictable, cliché and so messed up interstellar turnip that it wouldn’t scare a daycare child. Yes, it’s frustrating, but it’s even more frustrating when you see that the film doesn’t even have the excuse of being old or “no budget”. In order to prevent such a situation from happening to you on Halloween night, we present to you the 10 worst horror movies since 2000.
Nights of Terror ( Darkness Falls, 2003)
An evil spirit has taken the form of the tooth fairy takes revenge after nightfall on the inhabitants of the city where she was lynched 150 years before.
Yep, another fear-in-the-dark-themed film, with a bonus wicked tooth fairy. Few scary moments, ordinary actors, a bunch of clichés, and a script that doesn’t make sense, what more can we say? 5/10 on IMDB, 2.2 / 5 on Allocine, 9% on Rotten Tomatoes.
One Missed Call (2008)
A student sees her friends die savagely after they have received a message on their mobile phone a few days earlier that they hear themselves die. One day, it’s his turn.
A remake of an uninspired 2003 Japanese horror film titled Death Online, this American version is even worse. The distribution, which is nevertheless drinkable, cannot save the shipwreck which is getting worse every second. 4/10 on IMDB, 2/5 on Allocine, 0% on Rotten Tomatoes.
The Straw Man ( The Wicker Man, 2006)
A sheriff investigating the disappearance of a young girl on a small island discovers that the population is engaged in strange ceremonies.
A remake of an excellent 1973 film, this version starring Nicolas Cage when he was still (a little) at the top is an insult on film, especially for those who paid top dollar to see him in the cinema. In fact, the film becomes almost a comedy by necessity. 3.7 / 10 on IMDB , 15% on Rotten Tomatoes .
Navy SEALS vs Zombies (2015)
As a virus hits New Orleans, the Navy SEALS must protect a team of scientists from the hordes of zombies.
Watching this film, one wonders if the director is not also a zombie. What could have been an entertaining B-series is ultimately just a predictable string of cliché that ends up in the race for the award for the worst zombie movie ever. 3.3 / 10 on IMDB , 1.9 / 5 on Allocine .
Jonah Lives (2012)
Playing Ouija, a group of teenagers accidentally brings Jonah, a bloodthirsty zombie slayer, back to life, who goes after them to kill them one by one.
Forgettable from all points of view, Jonah Lives is a tasteless film that we have already 40 times and better executed. The actors are zero, the production is amateur level, the story is warmed up as much as possible, in short, solid crap. 2.8 / 10 on IMDB .
After escaping from a haunted cemetery a group of friends finds themselves trapped between two dark worlds. They will have to choose between fighting, dying, or returning to where they came from.
If you’re not a 13-year-old for whom seeing boobs and butt is enough to qualify a movie as good, stay away from Muck, which some critics have called the nastiest horror movie in recent times. years. 2.6 / 10 on IMDB , 2.3 / 5 on Allocine , 0% on Rotten Tomatoes .
Terreur.point.com ( Feardotcom, 2002)
A New York detective investigates mysterious deaths occurring 48 hours after the victim logs in to fear dot com.
There’s not much good to say about this American-Anglo-German-Luxembourgish film except that it is one of the first horror films where the internet plays a central role. Very unconvincing excuse … 3.4 / 10 on IMDB, 3% on Rotten Tomatoes, and on Allociné’s worst movies of all-time list.
House of the Dead (2003)
A group of college students goes to a rave on a mysterious island that is soon overrun with bloodthirsty zombies.
Inspired by the popular video game series of the same name, this Uwe Boll (remember the name …) film is meant to be a prequel to the games, but the result is a failure, and the word is polite, in every way. of view. It’s so bad that next to the Resident Evil series is a succession of masterpieces. 2/10 on IMDB, 1.2 / 5 on Allocine, 3% on Rotten Tomatoes.
The Ouija Experiment 2: Theater of Death (2017)
In a cinema, a group of spectators finds themselves trapped by an evil spirit released by an Ouija board.
If the first Ouija Experiment was bad, the second is certainly abysmal and one wonders how a producer could have thought this sequel was worth it. A waste of time which has the only advantage of lasting only 86 minutes. 1.8 / 10 on IMDB .
Alone in the Dark (2005)
The Adventures of Detective Edward Carnby who left for Shadow Island to investigate the murder of a friend. There, he will team up with an anthropologist and will be pursued by shadow creatures.
Phew! Where to start? Inspired by a game on Atari, Alone in the Dark earned its director Uwe Boll (I told you …) the title of the worst filmmaker in the world. Every shot, every scene, every sequence smells bad, despite a budget of $ 20 million. An almost criminal waste. 2.4 / 10 on IMDB , 1.1 / 5 on Allocine , 1% on Rotten Tomatoes.
