25 Best And Worst Horror Movies Of 2016: What To Watch And What To Avoid

By  | 

There’s no doubt about it, 2016 has provided some of the best horror movies in recent years. But like every year, there have also been horror movies released in 2016 that you should avoid at all costs. There are the horror movies that are so bad that they’re good — Leprechaun 5: In the Hood comes to mind — but then there are the horror movies that are so bad you should avoid them at all costs. In addition, there are also a handful of horror movies from 2016 that land in the middle of the road; they aren’t necessarily bad, but they aren’t great either.

The Worst Horror Movies Of 2016

This film has some great visuals, but so do thousands of YouTube videos that don’t take two hours of your life away that you’ll never get back. There is plenty of gore at the end, for those that think gore makes a horror flick good, but you’ll have to wade through humdrum waters to get to it.

Remember when Kevin Bacon was in good horror movies, like Stir of Echoes, Tremors, and Flatliners? Well, you’ll long for those days if you can sit through this drivel.

If you have ever wanted to see a film where the main character just walks around a house looking perplexed, then this is the film for you.

It’s very hard to make a possession film that’s very good these days, and this film proves that.

Many critics and genre fans described this as the horror version of The Running Man, and they are wrong. Because a horror version of The Running Man sounds very fun and entertaining, and this was not. On the bright side, 31 makes Rob Zombie’s The Lords of Salem look like a horror masterpiece.

The Other Side of the Door

After watching this you’ll wish you left this movie on the other side of the planet. Time Out describes why this is one of the worst horror movies of 2016.

“So tasteless and knee-jerk in its depiction of India that it makes ‘Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom’ look like a triumph of racial awareness, ‘The Other Side of the Door’ is packed with scowling beggars, scuttling cockroaches, dutiful housemaids and shady shamans. All of which might be almost forgivable if it wasn’t for the tedious plot and tiresome characters. Jeremy Sisto barely registers as the dutiful husband, while Callies shuffles through her scenes so lifelessly it becomes hard to tell which one’s the ghost.”
