THE TEN WORST HORROR MOVIES OF THE DECADE

Number 8

SCARY MOVIE 2

The Foywonder's Ten Worst Horror Films of the DecadeHey, horror comedies need love too. Or in this case, hate, scorn, ridicule, and disdain. I suppose I could have just as easily flipped a coin and put Scary Movie 3 here. Scary Movie 2 gets the nod because I can attest to having seen it in a packed dollar theater that sat in stone cold silence for 80-minutes and for the sad fact that this sequel pretty much marked the moment the Wayans Brothers finally stopped giving a damn.

Scary Movie 2 was such a last-minute rush job to get a sequel into theaters to make a quick summer movie buck that you could forgive the Wayans somewhat if not for the fact that they've spent the decade since punishing audiences with White Chicks, Little Man, and other alleged comedies that have even prompted TheOnion.com to do a spoof story asking if America is prepared for another Wayans Brothers movie.

The art of the spoof movie officially died with Scary Movie 2 and its special brand of lazy movie spoofings and piss, puke, and poo jokes that would soon give rise to Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, the duo that spent the second half of the decade gifting mankind with Date Movie, Epic Movie, Meet the Spartans, and Disaster Movie.

Agree with 80%. Although AVP Requiem isn't very good, it definately needs to be replaced by the original piece of shit AVP. Also, Black Chirstmas wasn't the best either, but it was entertaining enough, I would replace that one with Boogeyman.

In AVP's defense, at least you could see the bad shit that was happening.

Strewth!

I think the biggest failing of Van Helsing was that there was some hope for it. It did seem like the kind of awesome, big screen monster movie that everyone was waiting for...and then they actually made it. Personally, The Fog will always be the Worse Movie Of The Decade for me because of what it represented: the cynical, In It For A Buck Remake attitude that that turd RU-Pert and the rest of the plastic cast who didn't know a damn thing about the original projected in their interview with this site, and how that basically became the benchmark for almost every horror movie in a movie theater over the last 5 years. It pisses on all of us, and is single-handedly what's wrong with this genre right now.
