Yes, 2017 has been a great year for the horror genre. That doesn’t mean it left no room for terrible movies, though.
Upon watching 137 horror flicks and reviewing 65 that came out in 2017, it all came down to this: the top 10 horror films of the years, plus 5 honourable mentions.
As some of you might now, I’ve recently written a top 10 spookiest scenes post which got quite a good response.
While recalling the chilling sequences in horror movies I watched this year, I also remembered some of the worst ones. However, with this post I decided to list up the 10 most hilariously awful moments in horror films that came out in 2017. Therefore, I left aside those plain awful or boring scenes, in order to focus on and get some enjoyment from some involuntarily bad bits. I hope you will enjoy!
10 Dance like crazy – Split. I was very keen on the latest Shyamalan’s movie in my review. However, upon watching it again, I noticed some elements that didn’t quite work: as such, when Kevin – the villain with split personality – puts up a dance scene in front of the main girl, I laughed out loud. This scene is hilarious, but I’m not sure whether it tries to be or not…
9 Leatherface trying to speak – Leatherface. On top of a terribly executed movie, the otherwise rather decent final climax gets ruined by the clumsy, awkward attempt to speak by the titular character whose mouth has been previously sewn shut. As the audience, we are supposed to feel for and be creeped out by him, but the scene is so poorly made that Leatherface looks more like a teenager on MDMA (or like Sylvester Stallone…) rather than the unsettling antihero he is.
