MAYNARD'S TOP 10 WORST
HORROR / HORROR-RELATED MOVIES 2011
ONE WAY TRIP 3D
Switzerland / Austria, 2011
Imagine "Shrooms" in 3D, in Switzerland
and full of the most idiotic characters you can imagine
and you get the idea.
UK / USA, 2011
Finally, a cure for insomnia:
"The Resident", one of the most boring and
most uninteresting movies I've seen in a very.long time.
Hi, I'm Lucky McKee and I made
some ugly and uber-violent jerk-off material
for sadists because I'm so cool.
FRIGHT NIGHT (Reboot)
Just another completely unnecessary
and horribly dumb remake
that disrespects and shits on the original.
Matthijs van Heijningen Jr.'s
THE THING (Prequel/Reboot/Whatever)
USA / Canada, 2011
A pretty annoying and unoriginal CGI-fest
an insult to John Carpenter, an insult to horror-fans
and an insult to fans of the original.
A stupid movie for stupid people
who adore Eli Roth and think that "Saw"
is the best horror franchise evah.
BATTLE LOS ANGELES
One of the best movie trailers of the year
turned out to be one the shittiest alien-invasion movies
of all time. Thank you Mr. Liebesman for giving me
one of the worst in-theater-experiences of my life.
Jacques-Olivier Molon & Pierre-Olivier Thevenin
France / Switzerland, 2009
An inhumanly terrible movie about neanderthals,
made by Neanderthals, made for neanderthals.
Worst French horror flick I've seen so far.
Aharon Keshales & Navot Papushado's
The very first slasher flick made in Israel
and hopefully the last. How stupid, unfunny
and ugly-looking can a movie actually be?
2001 MANIACS: FIELD OF SCREAMS
Part 1 was already pretty bad, but the sequel...
my goodness, what a stinking piece of crap!
This movie is so terrible, so embarrassing,
so fucking imbecile, it makes me vomit.
This movie is a weapon of mass destruction
and director Sullivan should not be allowed to
ever, EVER direct another movie. Period.
Honorable Mentions: LAKE PLACID 3 / PROWL / SHARK NIGHT 3D
TOP 5 BIGGEST HORROR DISAPPOINTMENTS 2011
LET ME IN ("Let The Right One In" Remake)
USA / UK, 2010
A well-made and good-looking but completely pointless
remake and incredibly overrated reboot. What's with all the
praise? Stephen King called it 'the best US horror film in the
last 20 years' - seriously, WTF???
SCREAM 4 - USA 2011
/ MY SOUL TO TAKE - USA 2010
What a comeback - 2 new Craven flicks
and both are utterly disappointing.
"Scream 4" is a huuuge letdown and
"My Soul To Take" is probably his weakest movie to date.
Again, what a comeback...
9 years after the horrid "Ghosts Of Mars",
Carpenter strikes again with another
really, really underwhelming horror movie.
I'm ok with ripping off Spielberg
as long as it's done right - and SUPER 8 is not done right.
'Rubber' Teaser Trailer - Extremely amazing.
'Rubber' Trailer - Amazing.
'Rubber' Film - Not amazing at all.
A dumb and tiresome artsy-fartsy rubbish,
about as flat as Quentin Dupieux' a.k.a. Mr. Oizo's 'Flat Beat'.
WORST ALBUMS 2011
1. Lou Reed & Metallica - "LULU"
2. Dredg - "CHUCKLES & MR: SQZEAZY"
3. Coldplay - MYLO XYLOTO
WORST SONGS 2011
1. Rebecca Black - "FRIDAY"
2. Lady Gaga - "BORN THIS WAY"
3. Kreayshawn - "GUCCI GUCCI"
Oh btw, I wanted to make a Worst Non-horror list but surprisingly I didn't watch any bad non-horror-flicks. The only one that really disappointed me was "Sherlock Holmes 2: A Game Of Shadows" which is faaaaaaar from being as terrific as the original. Part 1 - 9/10. Part 2 - 5/10.
