10 Horror Movies That Tried To Be Scary, And Failed Miserably

- Page 1

Making movies is hard, and making an effective horror movie is especially so. For every classic the genre puts out like The Exorcist or Halloween, you get plenty of non-scary schlock like Basket Case or about a billion Saw movies. In particular, these 10 movies were anything but scary; most of them are actually pretty hilarious.

Nightmare On Elm St. 2: Freddy's Revenge

The immediate followup to one of the most classic horror movies of all time is... less than great. Fun fact: the movie is considered to be full of references to repressed homosexuality.

Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation

The fourth (yes, fourth) Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie turns Leatherface into a cross-dresser in terrible masks, and happens to star both Renee Zellweger and Matthew McConaughey before they were famous.

Silent Night, Deadly Night 2

A sequel to a horror movie that already wasn't great, this one has some pretty unintentionally funny moments, like the infamous "garbage day" scene.

The movies just get even more hilariously bad from here...
