The editors at Moviefone have compiled an amusing list of the 25 worst horror movies of all time. Comprising a list like that is a Sisyphean endeavor, because no other movie genre is stuffed with more turkeys than horror. But the list includes some unexpected choices, such as Snoop Dogg's Hood of Horror (no. 20 on the list), "with 'cribmaster' Snoop Dogg starring as the Hound of Hell."
The list includes lots of certifiably wretched dogs. Uwe Boll's House of the Dead (no. 16) has to rank as one of the worst films of any kind ever made. Feardotcom (no. 22) is the kind of soul-crushingly bad that sours you on watching movies for at least a month. And Neil LaBute's disastrous remake of The Wicker Man (no. 9) is so awesomely awful that I think of it as a comedy more than a horror film ("Not the bees! Noooo, not the bees!").
But I disagree with some of the other choices, like Lawrence Kasdan's adaptation of the Stephen King novel Dreamcatcher (no. 7), which I am aware everyone hates (it was such a flop, Kasdan hasn't directed another movie since), but I rather enjoy for the sheer loopiness of the plot.
I also think their choice for the number-one slot, Rob Zombie's remake of Halloween, is a little exaggerated. Yeah, the movie doesn't really work, and I've heard his version of Halloween II is even worse. But I can think of a thousand other well-known horror films that are infinitely worse. Like this one. Or this one. Or this, which is one of my favorite bad movies of all time.
