Top 25 Best Horror Films Of 2022.

I’ve said this before but when it comes to film genres the horror genre is by far the most diverse, it has a ton of subgenres that give the filmmakers so much room to create something truly special, which is one of the many reasons why it’s my favorite genre in film. I’ve been wanting to do a best horror films of *insert year here* list for awhile now and was actually supposed to last year, however things got busy but the time is right now. Especially since 2022 was such a fantastic year for the genre, it was a fantastic year for film in general but a lot of the quality came from the horror genre and it looks like that’s going to be the case in 2023.

Before we begin with the list there’s two honorable mentions that are worth mentioning.

Hellraiser (2022) – directed by David Bruckner

One thing that 2022 really did a fantastic job with is taking a series that has went downhill and completely turn the boat around, that is absolutely the case for Hellraiser. It’s the best film since the original all the way back in 1987, what really works here is the performances, Bruckner’s haunting direction and the atmosphere. Odessa A’Zion’s character actually goes through some really solid character development and just gives a fantastic performance. Jamie Clayton makes Pinhead her own and still captures the haunting atmosphere of the character from the original. Bruckner applies the same sort of atmosphere he used in his previous film The Night House and uses it here which leads to a beautiful dark film. Really hoping for a sequel for this one

Sissy – directed by Hannah Barlow and Kane Senes

Sissy is a slasher film that really rewards the viewer, it takes it’s time to introduce the characters, establish a thrilling atmosphere and giving some character development. When the film starts to get going it gets really great, the kills are fantastic, the dialogue is surprisingly really investing, it’s a slasher film that brings really strong elements to the table that some modern slasher films often forget.

Now let’s get into the list!

25. The Black Phone – directed by Scott Derrickson

The Black Phone is definitely one of the bigger names of the horror genre from this year and rightfully so, it’s been a bit since Scott Derrickson’s last horror film which was Deliver Us From Evil (2014), like I said in my review The Black Phone is Derrickson’s best film since Sinister (did not like Doctor Strange or Deliver Us From evil), what we have here is a simple story but a truly haunting one. What really makes The Black Phone are the performances Ethan Hawke is truly fantastic here and gives one of the most unsettling performances of the year, the atmosphere coming from him gives the mindset and feel of a completely deranged person. Mason Thomas and Madeline McGraw both give some of the best child actor performances I’ve seen in a very long time. When the performances and atmosphere are combined together they really result in such a haunting film that Derrickson did a wonderful job directing.

24. Smile – directed by Parker Finn

From one very popular horror film to another let’s talk about Smile, quite honestly this is the biggest surprise of the list. A lot of people including myself were very surprised by Smile, it could have easily been a forgettable studio horror film that would be talked about for less then a week and then be forgotten about. That’s not the case here! Although Smile might not be original it does take the subject of trauma and mental illness and executes it very well, Sosie Bacon gives a very strong performance, the camerawork helps the film standout quite a lot and much like The Black Phone the atmosphere truly helps build the film. It’s a haunting film about a subject that might be overdone in horror films, but it’s the execution that makes Smile standout among the crowd.

23. Orphan: First Kill – directed by William Brent Bell

Orphan: First Kill was going to happen eventually, Orphan has become such a popular horror film over the years to the point where they just couldn’t ignore that. There were some concerns about Orphan: First Kill mainly because of the director William Brent Bell which I won’t go much into I’ll just say his directing career is not good. However those concerns went away when the film came out, Isabelle Fuhrman is such an underrated actress, each time I see her in a film she absolutely nails it and that really applies here, even as a 25 year old she still killed it as Esther. It’s truly amazing how well she pulled it off she still feels the exact same from when she played Esther back in 2009, everything else really keeps what made Orphan so great from the brutal kills, to adding more character development to Esther and the overall atmosphere it’s truly a blast of fun, the twist also completely takes advantage of just having a complete blast combining the build up and this campy nature to it. Prequels in film are often times hard to get right but this right here is an example of a really good one.

22. Piggy – directed by Carlota Martínez-Pereda 

It’s pretty unfortunate that Piggy has been forgotten about because on the surface it may sound like another one of those “victim of bullying gets revenge” sort of movies, but that’s not the case here. The movie surprisingly has a strong commentary on bullying and body shaming, it questions the mortality on both sides both Sara and the bullies. Laura Galán does a really great job as Sara and gives a very genuine performance, the film has a ton of gore like a lot of French (part Spanish) horror films tend to have, the ending ties the bow very nicely and leaves with a pretty high note.

21. Watcher – directed by Chloe Okuno

Watcher might not be anything for the genre but much like some of the other films on this list so far it’s the execution that really gives the film the push. Maika Monroe gives such a strong performance here and the same can be said for Burn Gorman who gives a very creepy performance that really matches the atmosphere the film is going for, the final moments of the film are quite disturbing mainly due to how raw they really feel, Chloe Okuno truly does a fantastic job with her direction creating a haunting atmosphere that will definitely get under the viewers skin.

20. The Innocents – directed by Eskil Vogt

The Innocents is a very well crafted horror film that really plays with the idea of abandonment, I’m not typically a fan of creepy kid films as a lot of them tend to use the exact same ideas combined with not very good acting. But here the children are brilliant and almost instantly get under the viewer’s skin, there’s a lot naturalistic performances that have a range of emotions. The Innocents doesn’t rely on jumpscares or gore to be scary or even to be slightly disturbing, it’s all in the atmosphere and the performances that really elevate the film.

19. Speak No Evil – directed by Christian Tafdrup

If it’s one thing to take away from Sundance 2022 it’s that it had a lot of films that had a simple enough plot but quickly drove into madness, Speak No Evil was one of those it has a simple setup of two families meeting but quickly becomes much darker. The direction the film takes is quite unexpected and ends up being quite disturbing, it’s pretty shocking yet very welcoming. It piles on the disturbing elements and the elements of fear until it just explodes into this one giant bomb of “what the hell is going on here.” Going into Speak No Evil knowing as little as possible is key so if you haven’t already be sure to watch it on Shudder.

18. See For Me – directed by Randall Okita

See For Me was the first film I saw at the 2022 Sundance film festival and it has stayed within the Top 100 Best films of this year, the film is one of the more unique home invasion films to come out in recent years. The film has fantastic representation for disability representation and even non-binary representation as well, Skylar Davenport is visually impaired and identifies as non-binary, they do a fantastic job in the leading role the film is a lot in the same vein as Hush where the film shows through the lens of someone with a disability, it feels so much more authentic and the direction balances the dramatic moments with the atmospheric ones. I do hope we get to see more of Skylar Davenport in the future as they have the makings of being an very exciting talent.

17. Fresh – directed by Mimi Cave

Sundance 2022 had quite a lot of disturbing films previously mentioned Piggy and Speak No Evil and Watcher (well the ending is pretty disturbing), Fresh Is a mixture of a disturbing film and a very very dark comedy. I wasn’t exactly sure if it was going to work but due to Mimi Cave’s atmospheric direction and the performances from Daisy Edgar-Jones and Sebastian Stan (this is honestly some of the best acting he’s done) it really comes together very nicely. As I said in my review the film does feel a lot like 10 Cloverfield Lane, but the film takes those elements and makes them it’s own. Finally the balance of comedy and disturbing moments is really strong here it really makes me excited to see what Mimi Crave does next.

16. Scream – directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett

It’s already been said numerous times already but it’s quite incredible to see the consistent great quality that comes out of the Scream franchise (third movie is definitely the weakest but it’s definitely not bad), Scream 2022 only keeps that quality up with such an entertaining ride of a film. It’s essentially a huge celebration of the franchise and continues what made the other films so great, newcomers to the franchise are a lot of fun particularly Jenna Ortega (one of her many roles of the year) and Jasmin Savoy Brown. The film has a lot of brutal kills that are very well done, the legacy characters are given their time to shine and the overall film is just really entertaining. Olpin and Gillet previously worked on Ready Or Not and very easily applied their success here, Scream VI comes out next year which I’m looking forward to!

15. Prey – directed by Dan Trachtenberg

Remember at the beginning of the list with Hellraiser when I mentioned about completely turning franchises around? Well that is most certainly the case here, The Predator series has struggled to have a good film for awhile now. Outside of the first film and Predator 2 (like I said in my review it depends who you ask but I found it to be fun) the quality was lacking. However Dan Trachtenberg takes the series back to it’s roots and creates a very thrilling film that has some seriously gorgeous atmosphere. He uses a lot of the same techniques he used with 10 Cloverfield Lane and succeeds masterfully, Amber Midthunder gives one of the strongest performances of the year and really makes me excited to see what comes next for her. Prey is not the ordinary franchise film it allows the characters actions, cinematography and visuals to tell the story there’s a lot of quiet moments here that truly are striking. Prey is something you just wouldn’t see a lot of mainstream studios attempt at all, I’m truly happy we are going to see more of Amber Midthunder and I do hope this means Dan Trachtenberg will be directing more!

14. Mad God – directed by Phil Tippett

Mad God is a unique one on the list, for one thing it’s a stop-motion animated horror film which isn’t too common (most of the time you see those with shorts.) the film is Tippett’s passion project something he’s wanted to make for several years now, he’s done so much visual effects work for many recognizable films such as A New Hope, Empire Strikes Back, Jurassic Park, The Robocop movies and many others. Mad God is an almost narrativeless film that makes the viewer to try and come up with their own conclusion of what’s going on. I said this in my review but I will say it again Mad God is a beautifully crafted nightmare that also feels like an acid trip from hell, the film has the abandonment feel that really sticks with you throughout the film, I still stick with what I said in my review where my interpretation of the film is how civilizations can easily crumble, inventions made by the civilians are used against them by their god. Whether that’s the case or not Mad God is truly a fantastic film that I’m truly glad Phil Tippett shared with the audience.

13. The Sadness – directed by Robert Jabbaz

The Sadness I only heard about thanks to a few people on Film Twitter and Horror Twitter discussing it, saying how shocking and disturbing it was…that really doesn’t even begin to describe it. The Sadness takes the whole zombie genre and asks “what if zombies were intelligent and are sadistic rapists?” It’s very shocking and quite disturbing but definitely one of the most unique zombie films to come out in recent years, the film mainly succeeds due to the acting and attention detail especially with the graphic kills and the fear in each of the character’s eyes. Definitely not for everyone but if you like zombie films and disturbing films this might be for you.

12. Soft & Quiet – directed by Beth de Araújo

Soft & Quiet was my favorite film of SXSW 2022 when I first reviewed it and that still remains true especially after a rewatch last month. It’s a brutally honest film about a white supremacist women group flat out saying their racist beliefs that ultimately leads into disturbing events. The point the film is getting across is to show and say that anyone who you would least expect can be a white supremacist, the beginning of the film surprises the viewer by letting this information flow out naturally. Unless you have actually heard what ends up happening in the film this is a very surprising reveal, the acting is very realistic, the cinematography is shot in this very raw style that is truly haunting. What truly makes the film work is there is no sugarcoating, it’s the brutally honest truth that unfortunately is very very real. It’s not going to be for everyone but if it sounds interesting to you give it a go, just know what you are getting into.

11. We’re All Going to the World’s Fair – directed by Jane Schoenbrun

I saw this one back at the 2021 Sundance film festival, it finally released in April of this year and I still really love it. One of the many things I love about the horror genre is someone will always come along and bring a new type of horror and Jane Schoenbrun does just that, it combines elements of the coming of age genre and internet horror subgenre then paints a surprisingly very sad picture. Mainly due to the film focusing on observations of being lonely on the internet and that wanting to be a part of a group on the internet can be dangerous. The film doesn’t only say “internet bad” it actually tells the dark sides, Anna Cobb gives a terrific performance as well. There’s this haunting atmosphere to the film that’s truly beautiful and really captures the topic. Schoenbrun really has a really strong directing style that instantly gets the viewer’s attention, they have another horror film called “I Saw The TV Glow” coming out pretty soon (already in pre-production so it could be released next year).

10. Terrifier 2 – directed by Damien Leone

To start off the top 10 we have Terrifier 2 a film that was not only one of 2022’s many sequels that are better than the first film, but a $250,000 budget film that made $12.2 million at the box office. Terrifier 2 gained a large fanbase very quickly and it’s very easy to see why, the film is absolutely entertaining and is a huge love letter to the classic splatter film genre and even has the spirit of it. The gore combined with the kills are nasty but truly incredible, Lauren LaVera gives a very strong performance plus her character Sienna is just one of those characters that you instantly really like. Finally you can really feel the passion that went into this film, it’s very clear that Leone is a huge fan of the horror genre and it definitely shows here. Very excited to see what’s in store for Terrifier 3.

9. The Menu – directed by Mark Mylod

I was definitely expecting The Menu to be great but what I wasn’t expecting was for it to be a very clever fantastic film. The performances combined with the atmosphere is truly what elevates the film, Anya Taylor-Joy, Ralph Fiennes and Hong Chau all give some of the best performances of the year. Fiennes and Chau are both genuinely intimidating and their personalities blend so well together which really helps. The atmosphere is very thrilling but at the same time darkly funny, there’s a really sweet balance of the two different types of atmospheres the film is going for and it truly works, it’s a genuinely investing critique on the food influencer culture. Finally there’s Anya Taylor-Joy which gives yet another fantastic and very memorable performance, The Menu is very well written, darkly funny and very strongly acted!

8. Barbarian – directed by Zach Cregger

Barbarian was this year’s Malignant, a truly off the rails ride from beginning to end that you never wanted to stop. Without giving anything away because as everyone says it’s definitely a requirement to go into Barbarian knowing as little as possible, the film has this strong urban legend type feel to it that is just really creative. Justin Long and Georgina Campbell are truly fantastic here and deliver some quite strong performances, it’s the very definition of a midnight film especially when watching it with a crowd. The atmosphere is truly perfect and remains an entertaining ride from beginning to end.

7. Nope – directed by Jordan Peele

Jordan Peele’s third film Nope is his biggest film yet especially when it comes to scale which is truly epic. The film has this mix of styles from a ton of directors such as Steven Spielberg, Stanley Kubrick, M. Night Shyamalan, Hitchcock and John Carpenter, Spielberg mainly comes from the third act being a huge spectacle and the creature of the film sharing lots of similarities to Jaws. Hitchcock and Carpenter come in with the suspense of the film (some could argue the score is partly Spielberg and Carpenter), Shyamalan comes in with some of the characters and a few of the shots, finally there’s Kubrick who is definitely the cinematography (absolutely gorgeous.) the part that stands out the most is Jordan Peele took all of these directing styles and completely made them his own. Finally there’s Daniel Kaluuya’s and Keke Palmer’s performances that are some of the very best of the year.

6. X – directed by Ti West

Ti West completely masters the whole 70s and 80s slasher film throwback idea with X, from the craft, the filming, acting, directing it completely feels like a film that is straight out of the 70s and 80s. The cast is truly some of the best of 2022 Mia Goth truly nails it with both her performances, Jenna Ortega once again is truly great, Britney Snow’s performance is wonderful to see since she’s back in horror again and Kid Cudi gives a solid performance. X combines slow burn elements, with character moments and slasher elements as well. Sure at the film’s core it is a slasher film however it does have it’s theme of old age which is genuinely sad as well, the film takes it’s time to develop the characters as well as Pearl who is truly well written. X is a film that not only feels like a throwback film from the 70s and 80s but it also looks like one.

5. Resurrection – directed by Andrew Semans

Resurrection was my favorite film from Sundance 2022 and that still remains true, it’s a bizarre disturbing film that really goes insane during the third act in all the right ways. It has a bizarre nature that has a lot of David Cronenberg like filmmaking to it including some elements from Cronenberg but like a lot of films on the list it makes those elements it’s own. Without a doubt Rebecca Hall is truly the standout here, her performance is incredible as well as haunting. Finally there’s the 10 minute monologue that is one of the best scenes from a film in 2022, it’s intimidating, it invests the viewer and it’s masterfully acted by one of the very best actresses working today.

4. Bodies Bodies Bodies – directed by Halina Reijn

Bodies Bodies Bodies as a film works so much more than you would expect, the incredibly fun cast particularly Rachel Sennott, Amandla Stenberg, Maria Bakalova and Myha’la Herrold is one of the main aspects that really makes the film work. They all easily connect with one another giving the viewer plenty of very memorable moments, the film is also one of the very few films to actually capture how someone from Gen-Z would talk and act. The Gen-Z style humor truly works here and it’s very clear that Haliana Reijn and Sarah DeLappe understood that, the tight and close up shots create a thrilling atmosphere and makes the film actually very grounded. Finally the film takes the whodunnit genre and does something different with it, the leads to a twist that is very cleverly written into the story. I’m very excited to see what Halina Rejin does next.

3. Crimes Of The Future – directed by David Cronenberg

David Cronenberg returned in 2022 with a film that reminds the audience why he’s the master of body horror with Crimes Of The Future. You can feel the classic Cronenberg feel in the atmosphere within the first few seconds of the film, it’s the dark and mysterious atmosphere that compliments the world the film is taking place in. With this world surgery is the new sex and the world itself compliments that with a lot of architecture that actually tells the story of the world. While some might argue that there wasn’t enough world building, the film builds the world visually in a more non traditional way, there’s tons of shots here that really speak for themselves. The cinematography tells a lot of the story with some gorgeous shots that are captivating, Viggo Mortensen and Léa Seydoux are both phenomenal here and give some genuinely chilling performances. Kristen Stewart gives this truly unique hypnotic and terrifyingly beautiful performance that is truly unforgettable, Cronenberg’s direction is truly masterful and is just absolutely beautiful to see return.

2. Bones and All – directed by Luca Guadagnino

Luca Guadagnino has already proven that he can nail the horror genre with his previous film Suspiria (2018) and he once again nails it here. Bones and All is cannibal love story that takes elements of romance, horror and drama blends them all into one to create a masterfully crafted film. The very old low budget feel of the film is truly relaxing and really shows the beauty within the cinematography, Taylor Russell gives one of the best performances of the year and quite honestly one of my favorites from a horror film. There’s something so sweet and touching about her performance that instantly connects you to her, Timotheé Chalamet gives his most interesting performance of his career yet and really connects well with Taylor Russell. Mark Rylance is absolutely terrifying here and has the “low budget horror villain” type feel to him that makes your skin crawl. When you combine the performances, the music, cinematography and the old low budget feel you get such a haunting film that is absolutely gorgeous.

1. Pearl – directed by Ti West

It’s quite amazing to see two Ti West films that are both masterfully crafted and are completely different from one another release in the exact same year, Mia Goth gives the best performance of 2022 not only is her performance a wonderfully written character study of Pearl but it leads to several unforgettable terrifying moments that truly make this film special. Mia Goth has a 6 minute monologue towards the end of the film and it’s easily my favorite scene from a film in 2022, it’s well filmed, truly well acted and the writing is haunting with tons of little details thrown in. the atmosphere is thrilling there’s something very eerie about the town the film takes place in. Where anything can happen at any given moment, it matches the type of town you would have in a nightmare it’s truly haunting and the style of the film only makes it that more effective. The use of Technicolor and replicating it into a film from the 1930s as well as combining classic horror is truly captivating and really making this a beautifully crafted masterpiece. Pearl is a film that truly feels like a beautiful nightmare that you really want to keep exploring because of it’s beauty and depth, there’s so much to this film that Ti West created and Mia Goth compliments with her performance. It’s a film that has every single element working with it to create such a wonderful film.

Most Anticipated Movies Of August 2021!

How is it August already? So to cut to the chase, August’s lineup is not the strongest sure there’s the obvious ones like The Suicide Squad, Coda, Candyman and a few others but it’s not as big as some of the other months have been. With that said the ones that are on the list I am really excited for, so let’s get right to it!

As always let’s start at the bottom and work our way up to the top!

Starting off there’s Mortal Kombat Legends Battle Of The Realms which is a direct sequel to Scorpion’s Revenge which came out last year (and it was quite a strong movie) it even made my best list last year! I’m glad they are doing a series of animated Mortal Kombat movies, I said in my review for Scorpion’s Revenge that I would love to see what they do next and here we are, can’t wait! It releases August 31st on all VOD platforms!

Cryptozoo I saw back in January at the Sundance film festival, this is one of the ones I’ve been waiting to rewatch for quite sometime. I even said in my review that I want to rewatch it mostly due to how strange and bizarre it really is. This is the type of movie that’s almost guarantee to divide audiences. It releases on all VOD Platforms August 20th!

Homeroom is a film I wanted to see at Sundance but due to my schedule being filled up I couldn’t get the chance. Luckily It has a release date, it looks really solid and I’ve heard it was great! It releases August 12th on Hulu!

Respect is finally going to release this month, Jennifer Hudson is going to do a fantastic job in her role as Aretha Franklin! Not much else to say here! It releases August 13th in theaters!

Reminiscence looks really promising between a really great cast (Hugh Jackman and Rebecca Ferguson), a really interesting premise and what looks like a pretty neat atmosphere. I truly hope this movie is great! It releases August 20th on HBO Max and in Theaters!

Annette a film that premiered at Cannes film festival and was met with very divided opinions, some people say it was a waste of time but appreciated the filmmaking. While others say it’s quite incredible and a lot of fun to watch. I’m very excited to check this one out!! Annette releases in theaters August 6th and on Amazon Prime Video August 20th!

There’s not a whole lot on The Witcher: Nightmare Of The Wolf, besides the trailer which is quite great! I do love The Witcher Netflix series and it does seem like they are taking a similar step like they did with the Castlevania Netflix series only that this is a movie. Which I absolutely loved the Castlevania Netflix series so here’s to hoping this is just as good!! It releases August 23rd on Netflix!

Demonic is Neil Blomkamp’s next film his last full length film was Chappie in 2015 this time he’s tackling the horror genre which I have always wanted to see how Blomkamp does the horror genre. The trailer itself looks very promising so I’m pretty excited about it! Demonic releases August 20th on all VOD Platforms!

While I was working on my list I had no idea what to do with Don’t Breathe 2, the marketing has been very awful however that’s because the trailers are misleading the film. Some people linked me to a interview with the director of the first movie Fede Alvarez pretty much saying the marketing is very misleading, I’m willing to trust Alvarez in this case plus he’s co-wrote this movie and he is one of the producers. I’m very excited for this one, I’m a huge fan of the first film that was a surprise hit in 2016! Don’t Breathe 2 releases August 13th in theaters!

The Night House looks really solid, I’m glad that it finally got release date! It has a lot of potential from the trailers, Rebecca Hall looks great and the story seems very interesting! It releases August 20th in theaters!

Speaking of movies that took forever to get a release date…Ema I’ve heard is quite fantastic, I’ve been avoiding trailers mostly due to people saying “the less you know about this movie going in the better” the plot sounds interesting so I’m down! Ema releases August 13th in theaters (and I think VOD don’t quote me on that)

No Man Of God I saw back in March for the SXSW film festival, It was one of my favorite films of the festival and I’m quite excited to rewatch it again. It’s definitely one of the best films about Ted Bundy, Luke Kirby and Elijah Wood both do an incredible job, I highly recommend seeing this one when it releases August 27th on all VOD Platforms!

Candyman is one of my most anticipated films of the entire year, I’ve been waiting to watch it since last year. The trailers are fantastic, the cast looks incredible and it does look like they are doing something different which is quite great! Candyman releases August 27th in theaters!

Every passing day I get more and more excited for The Suicide Squad, from the early reactions it sounds fantastic and a whole lot of fun. There’s also this wonder of “which characters are going to survive and which aren’t” it’s truly all a mystery which I really like! The Suicide Squad releases August 6th in theaters and on HBO Max!

Finally there’s Coda which I saw back at Sundance in January, in fact it was the very first film I saw at Sundance…..and it was one of the best films I saw! Coda is still sitting in my Top 10 Best Films Of 2021 list. It’s truly an incredible film that is such a win for representation when it comes to deaf actors, I cried at least 3 times during the film and I absolutely can not wait to watch it again! Please watch this film when it releases! Coda releases August 13th on Apple TV+

And that’s all she wrote! Despite only having 13 films on the list, August still looks like it can be fantastic when it comes to film! What will you be checking out this month? Are there any movies not on the list you are excited for?

Top 100 Worst Films Of 2020

So this is a little surprise, I decided to skip Monster Hunter. Why? Because It’s taking way too long for a digital release, plus I seriously don’t want to be overwhelmed with so much stuff to do at the end of February when I’ll have my best list out after I see The Father.

Unfortunately I will not be doing a traditional countdown type list this year where I split the list into parts. As it really does get tiring after awhile, the main reason I’m not doing it this year is because to be quite honest the worst movies of 2020 list is not at all very exciting. A lot of the films are either a boring kind of bad, terrible clones of actual good movies, sequels that feel almost identical to their predecessors and much more. I will give some overall thoughts however!!

I knew from the moment the first trailer for After We Collided showed up online that it was going to take the spot of worst film of 2020 and here we are now! Those of you who are new After was my worst film of 2019 and it wasn’t even close, I can say the exact same here. After We Collided destroyed every other movie at being one of the worst things I’ve ever seen and it wasn’t even close. It doesn’t help that the movie is MUCH worse than After which is really saying something…what’s worse is there’s apparently two more of these films, one of which is supposedly coming out this year.

Some other noteworthy garbage Artemis Fowl is one of the worst things Disney has made and I have no problem saying that, it’s no surprise Disney did their absolute best to completely bury this movie. Fantasy island is the worst horror film of 2020 and shows how much worse Jeff Wadlow is as a director, I didn’t think it could be worse than Truth Or Dare but damn I was wrong.

The Jesus Rolls had no point in existing, it has cast that tricks you into thinking that could be worth your time but in reality it’s not funny, interesting or anything worth looking into. The Murder Of Nicole Brown Simpson is by Daniel Farrands the guy who did Haunting Of Sharon Tate you know that tasteless movie about Sharon Tate’s murder? Well this time he did Nicole Brown Simpson and it’s one of the worst things I’ve ever seen, luckily it seems like he currently isn’t working on anything I hope it stays that way. The rest of the top 10 are terrible in their own different ways, Stardust miserably fails as a biopic, Free Lunch Express feels like a horrendous early 2000s parody movie, Songbird is a movie about COVID-23 (yes COVID-23) that felt like fear mongering and just an overall horrendous movie, The Tax Collector is David Ayer’s worst film and Verotika is just….huh?

There’s a lot of sequels that didn’t need to happen such as another Norm Of The North movie, Family Vacation marks the 4th movie in the franchise. It’s just as bad as the others! Cats & Dogs 3: Paws Unite really came out of nowhere, it’s not as bad as the second movie but it’s still painful to sit through. Kissing Booth 2 was worse than the first movie and unfortunately a third film will be releasing this year.

So that about wraps my final thoughts, 2021 is definitely going to be interesting in terms of movies. Will there be anything that could top After We Collided in terms of being the worst film of the decade so far? We will have to wait and see!
