The Foywonder's Ten Worst Horror Films of the Decade


Number 4


The Foywonder's Ten Worst Horror Films of the DecadeIf Black Christmas represents the sort of slasher movie that gives slasher movies a bad name then Premonition represents the kind of supernatural thriller that gives supernatural thrillers a bad name. Sandra Bullock finds herself stuck in a boring, confusing, frustrating, and monumentally stupid Groundhog Day-style supernatural thriller tailored for the Lifetime Network crowd about a fishwife awakening each morning to find it is a different day of the week before or after the Wednesday on which her husband is killed in a car crash. Is she having premonitions? Is she going insane? Is she time traveling? Is it all because she's spiritually empty inside and possibly demonic forces are toying with her? Is it that she's lost her faith in everything and is receiving a second chance at spiritual redemption by being given this opportunity to save her husband and their troubled marriage? Or is it all just a lethargically directed slice of pseudo-spiritual claptrap suffering from major delusions of being a mind-bending "Twilight Zone"-ish thriller that only succeeds in aggravating viewers with its irrationality before leaving the audience feeling cheated.

I could spend a week of dissecting everything wrong about a movie like this that works so hard at being twisty it even outsmarts itself periodically, and I nearly did in my spoiler-filled review of Premonition here. Go back and give my review a read if you truly want to know why Premonition earned its spot on this list.

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.

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.
