The Worst Movies of 2013

It is about that time again. It's time to talk about the worst movies of 2013.
Now, as always, I will only discuss the movies that I saw this year. I did miss some major movies this year that I might add if I see them before the end of the year. I also want to reiterate that this is all my personal opinion and are in no particular order. Deal with it.

Let's get started!

Texas Chainsaw 3D

I didn't see this in theaters but figured since I am a horror buff that I would give it a shot. Let's just say I'm happy I got this through Netflix and didn't waste my money on it at the box office. It was just ghastly. The story was lame, the acting was borderline hilarious, the effects were awful, and I can imagine that nothing would have even been visible in 3D. Moving on.

A Haunted House

Unoriginal. Unfunny. Tired. Stupid. End of story. 

Movie 43

I don't really have much to say about this one. I thought it tried a bit too hard. I don't think it was as bad as people made it out to be, but it was still pretty bad.

Warm Bodies

aka, Twilight zombies. I didn't like this movie. It was just stupid for me. The idea of a zombie coming back to life and saving the world because he falls in love was lame. I didn't like the humor and I didn't find it that interesting. I had to pause it for a while to keep myself from falling asleep. It just dragged and dragged.

The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia

It made the first one look like a masterpiece. I just found it very predictable and boring. 

21 and Over

Never even saw the whole movie because I turned it off. That's all I need to say.

Jack the Giant Slayer

It just... ugh. 

The Last Exorcism: Part 2

Yet another one I turned off after a half hour or so. I'm glad I didn't go see it in theaters. The again, the first one wasn't good either.

On the Road

Good cast but bad movie. It was too long, too disconnected, and it really wasn't that great of a book adaptation. I now understand why it got trashed at the festivals. 

The Lords of Salem

I should have liked this movie and I was kinda borderline about it, but in the end I found it to be very weird and quite blasphemous. I think that Rob Zombie used this movie primarily for shock value and it had no real substance. I like witches when it comes to story but this one didn't quite come together for me. It's unfortunate.

The Purge

I loved the concept and hoped it would be good, but it just wasn't. There was a lot wrong with it, it was too short, and they wasted a great concept. 

World War Z

Holy shit, what a terrible movie. It had no substance, no character development, terrible effects, and took absolutely nothing from Max Brooks' book other than the title. The fact that they're making a sequel is downright painful. I blame everyone that gave it great box office numbers.

The Lone Ranger

There is nothing to really say about this one. It was just so bad. 


I went into this interested and somewhat excited, but I left disappointed which was expected. Chloe Moretz was severely miscast, the effects were not very good, the acting was overdone, and the directing was even worse. Yet another attempt at Carrie in the trenches.

Yeah, 2013 definitely had some stinkers. But there were good ones to shine through which I will post next. Do you disagree with me? Did I miss a movie that you didn't like? Let me know in the comments.

  1. The only films on that list I've seen are TEXAS CHAINSAW 3-D, though I enjoyed it as mindless entertainment, I understand it being on your list, and JACK THE GIANT SLAYER, which I didn't mind all that much. I might see the new CARRIE, but I've been putting it off because most reviews make it sound like it's too similar to the original, and the last thing I want is another PSYCHO (1998).

    1. Carrie pretty much was what it was. It was a modern rehash of the novel that had bad directing and miscasting. I like Chloe Moretz, but she shouldn't have been Carrie. The best part of the movie was Julianne Moore.
