Alas, the viewing experience was as disappointing as finding a Jehovah’s Witness at my front door. And as for Mr. Farber’s quote, KABLUEY turns out to be pointless — don’t take my word for it, even Little Oblio agrees.
Contemptible acting and an improbably script sink this turd, almost before it gets going. Renny Harlin’s direction is bang-on exciting for a film about racing, but he’s left stranded at the action starting line by some of the most godawful actors ever to come together in a single mainstream, big-budget film.
Ab-so-lutely dire film from Steve Beck sees Margulies and Bryne scuttle their careers (temporarily, though) on the reef of Dark Castle’s lamentable Ghost Ship, a film so bereft of scares and logic that it almost defies description. While the opening scene is especially brutal and effective, the rest of the film never once begins to live up to the promise it starts with.
Did you know that studios not always want their film to make profit and become a huge success at the box office? Sometimes it can serve them better to make a loss.
At least that’s what I was told by a guy I met at a recent meet-up with sci-fi fans where I live.
By the nineties John Hughes was turning his attention away from teenagers, applying his penmanship to stories about kids before they reach the teen years. These included Dennis The Menace, Beethovan, Baby’s Day Out, and Miracle On34th Street. However, it was Home Alone that certainly drew the most praise in his collection of films about kids, but today I’m focussing on the least discussed. Indeed, the worst of the bunch. Yes – even more eye-gougingly painful than Baby’s Day Out!
From a production standpoint, Thirteen Ghosts is a visually stunning film. It’s a shame, then, that the film sucks ass. Seriously, how anybody thought this script might work beyond the basic premise still startles me. The film’s narrative is a disaster in almost every respect, although it’s only saving grace is the stunning house set and the cinematography.
Funky Monkey is a children’s movie. This, however, doesn’t mean the acting need be childish, nor the directing juvenile, nor the script sophomoric. Forcing a tot to sit through an entire viewing of this immature production is akin to child abuse.

I have only walked out of one film at the cinema, and this was it.
As a general rule, I don’t take much heed when I see posters and previews for live-action remakes of anime. However, while in London in 2009 I came across something while walking Piccadilly Circus that had me bubbling with ecstatic elation. A remake of one of my favorite anime short films — Blood: The Last Vampire.
It’s amazing that even the professional design companies out there can miss the mark so wide, and so often.

Every time we kick into Worst Film Week, we usually pull out the latest list of the biggest box office bombs of all time – thanks to Wikipedia. So, here in the 2012 edition of the current Top 20 Box Office Bombs of All Time.
It’s a miracle that the dogturd that is Bloodsurf isn’t as infamous a crapfest as Plan 9 From Outer Space Is, because it’s easily just as entertaining.
I have seen nearly four thousand films in my lifetime and throughout those thousands of films only one has managed to sear itself into my memory. Now, I’m no stranger to horrible movies—Plan Nine from Outer Space, Rattlers, and Jaws: The Revenge have all been watched. Yet only one of these films features a cross-dressing Nick Nolte, or intense debates about Fairyland. Yes, you read that correctly.
Fatal Deviation is the epitome of a low-budget movie that brings its elements together to create a thoroughly enjoyable film. Sure, it’s rough in spots, but it makes up for it with sweet action scored with soft, low-key synth rock. Not the best combo to be sure, but I loved every minute of it.
If seeing a bad film is like being punched in the face – which it really isn’t, but just go with it for now – seeing the bad sequel to a good film is like being punched in the face by someone you know and like.
Worst Film Week kicks off tomorrow, and boy, have we got some doozies to bring up! Once more, we’ve delved into the scum-bucket of crappy films and come up with a smorgasbord of trashy rubbish for your delectation, and this year, we’ve once more spread the word to others in the blogging community for their opinions.

Apparently, everyone has a film they hate. It’s a fact of life, much like birds, bees, and the shaded bit behind the bike locker. Let’s look at my track record in being disappointed by film. Hell, it’s as good a place as any to start in finding a film I can love to hate.
