“ M. Knight Shyamalan - the Ed Wood of his generation. And this ladies and gentlemen is our Plan 9 From Outer Space. Mark Wahlberg's acting in this would make Keanu Reeves grimace.

Director: Karyn Kusama
“ I get dark humor in horror films. When done well it can be great. I don't know what this was. A rare horror film starring, written and directed by women it's just a sin and a shame that it was so bad.
There is actually a seen in this where Fox's character gets stabbed, and says to her attacker, while impaled: "Do you have a tampon?" ” - RatedRGoddess

“ I hate putting this on here, considering the first story is so good. But for some reason I will never fathom, the directer switches over from serious well acted survival tone of the first story to bad poorly acted dark humor in the second story. It really threw me off. What a waste. ” - RatedRGoddess

I must also add the waste of the great Diane Lane. ” - RatedRGoddess

and then there's Kristen Stewart ... just watch Cape Fear instead. ” - RatedRGoddess

“ Yes it is The Lost Boys meets The Craft without the fun, originality and competent script. It really just should have been released on the CW.
I barely got through opening sequence of multiple shoving and characters angrily calling each other 'dude' and 'man'. ” - RatedRGoddess

Director: Wes Craven
“ I ask again, is it hard to find a good werewolf movie? This film makes American Werewolf in Paris look like -- it's not quite as bad. Although I credit this movie with helping me to realize Joshua Jackson is hot, it is simply awful. ” - RatedRGoddess

Director: Adam Green
“ Oh how the mighty have fallen. The first film for me, was fun, and a real throwback to great 80's slasher that never took itself too seriously. This movie however veered from all that with a silly script, only about two cool kill sequences and this weird thing with Danielle Harris' eyebrows. ” - RatedRGoddess
 
21.
The Fog (2005)

“ Boy.
I really don't know what to say.
Unnecessary remake would be obvious, but I also have to add that I hate when Hollywood thinks piling on CGI over genuine atmosphere equals good film. Watch the original Fog or The Mist instead, this one's all smoke and mirrors. Speaking of smoke though, Tom Welling could set something on fire in this. ” - RatedRGoddess
 
22.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.9/10 X

Director: Rick Rosenthal
“ Jason has some pretty crappy sequels under his belt. But I always hold special offense to bad Michael Myers sequels since he's supposed to play it straight. This film, from it's crappy premise and boring fake Laurie Strode to the pointless stunt casting of Tyra Banks and Busta Rhymes(and his martial arts skills), I literally never saw how it ended. About ten minutes before the end I just did not care.
Jaimie Lee Curtis - YOU are the only one better than this. ” - RatedRGoddess

Director: Peter Webber
“ Sigh. Poor Gong Li.
This movie is so void of any type of feeling, and considering the subject matter that says a lot.
I don't even think that this story needed to be told onscreen.
There's only one Hannibal Lector - and we don't need an origin story.
Especially a bland one. ” - RatedRGoddess

“ I know Stephen King Adaptations are either hit(The Shining) or miss(The Stand). This is definitely a miss. I would put this in with Cold Creek Manor as a movie that didn't know what it wanted to be - and didn't go anywhere. Sorry Jack Sparrow. ” - RatedRGoddess

Talk about a ticket to hell. ” - RatedRGoddess
