The 12 worst horror movies of all time

Business Insider Lifestyle 1 month ago
  • Horror movies can be fairly hit or miss — with many movie buffs claiming there are far more misses.
  • Some of these lackluster movies like "Birdemic: Shock and Terror" and "Troll 2" are so bad, they've amassed a cult following.
  •  Others, like "Death Bed: The Bed that Eats" have not had such luck. 
  • Here is a list of 12 of the worst horror movies of all time.

Horror movie fans are a forgiving bunch. The ratio of great to terrible horror movies is far from even, but sometimes all it takes is an interesting idea or innovative kill for a bad one to win over its audience.

The films on this list have no redeeming qualities ⁠— they're just bad to the point of being offensive. 

From sequels that completely betrayed the spirit — and plot — of their predecessors to low-budget efforts that seemed as if they were made by aliens who had never seen a movie before, the titles included in this list are 12 of the worst movies of all time.

Preemptive disclaimer: There are many deep-cut titles and shot-on-video films that horror fans will hate to see left off of this list. The dozen films that made the cut are ones that readers can easily track down on the internet and watch today, should their curiosity get the best of them.

Without further ado, here are the 12 worst horror movies of all time.

'Troll 2' (1990)

'Death Bed: The Bed That Eats' (1977)

'The Mangler' (1995)

'Manos: The Hands of Fate'

'The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living And Became Mixed-Up Zombies!!?' (1964)

'The Giant Spider Invasion' (1975)

'The Happening' (2008)

'Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2' (2000)

'Plan 9 From Outer Space' (1959)

'Jaws: The Revenge' (1987)
