We all love a good horrible horror movie. Don’t lie, I know you do. There’s just nothing quite like watching a really awfully animated horror movie where the dialogue seems to be written by a 12 year old. It’s good fun. Sadly, the critics don’t always agree with that sentiment.
The critics don’t quite understand that horror is a different type of movie altogether, so often even very good horror movies end up with abysmal ratings. Let’s take a look at some amazing horror movies that score horribly on Rotten Tomatoes.
Halloween III: Seasons of the Witch (1982)
Well, it’s no secret that every third chapter of a horror series is where things start to get a bit … off. Halloween III had very little to do with Michael Myers, but I guess there was a small link to the previous movies with the masks and all? It’s honestly not that bad, it’s just not very good either.
Event Horizon (1997)
Probably still one of the best horror movies ever made, and critics hated it. It scores a mystifying 24 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, yet it has an amazing cast, amazing effects for the time and a decent storyline.
