As a passionate movie enthusiast, it may come as a surprise to hear that there are films out there that I genuinely despise. Yes, even the world of cinema, with its vast array of genres, masterpieces, and hidden gems, has its fair share of movies that failed to ignite any flicker of joy within me.

Prepare for an unfiltered exploration of the movies I loathe, as I invite you to step into the darkness and explore the flip side of the silver screen.


1. Do the Right Thing

“Do the Right Thing” (1989) is an insufferable mess, lacking substance, coherent storytelling, and compelling performances. Avoid at all costs.



2. Gone Girl

“Gone Girl” (2014) is an overhyped and manipulative film that tries too hard to be clever and ends up being frustratingly predictable. Its characters are shallow and unlikable, leaving you with an empty and unsatisfying experience. Don’t waste your time on this tedious thriller.



3. After Hours

“After Hours” (1985) is a mind-numbing disaster that wastes your time with a nonsensical plot and unlikable characters. Skip it.



4. Exorcist II: The Heretic

“Exorcist II: The Heretic” (1977) is a horrendous sequel that tarnishes the legacy of the original. It’s a nonsensical mess that fails to deliver any scares or coherent storytelling. Avoid it like the plague.



5. Cannibal Holocaust

“Cannibal Holocaust” (1980) is a repulsive and gratuitously violent film that revels in shock value rather than meaningful storytelling. It’s a disturbing display of gore with no redeeming qualities. Steer clear of this grotesque atrocity.



6. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

“The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” (1974) is a repugnant and nauseating film that offers nothing but mindless brutality and senseless violence. It’s a grim and soulless experience that leaves a bad taste in your mouth. Avoid it if you value your sanity.



7. Drugstore Cowboy

“Drugstore Cowboy” (1989) is a tedious and unengaging film that glamorizes drug addiction without providing any meaningful insight. It’s a tiresome and empty exploration of a dark subject matter. Skip it and save yourself the disappointment.



8. 1917

“1917” (2019) is a visually impressive but emotionally hollow war film. Its single-shot gimmick fails to compensate for a lackluster storyline and underdeveloped characters. It’s a forgettable and shallow attempt at capturing the horrors of war.




9. The Cabin in the Woods

“The Cabin in the Woods” (2011) is a clichéd and predictable horror film that fails to deliver any genuine scares or originality. Its attempts at subverting genre tropes fall flat, leaving audiences with a tedious and uninspiring viewing experience. Save yourself the disappointment and skip this forgettable flick.




10. Elephant

“Elephant” (2003) is a pretentious and aimless film that offers no meaningful insight or coherent storytelling. Its attempt at exploring a tragic event lacks depth and fails to engage the audience. It’s a self-indulgent and tedious exercise in filmmaking. Avoid it at all costs.
