Continuing with our scary movie theme for October, let’s talk about the movies that utterly failed to scare you. Maybe they tried too hard, maybe the premise was just too ridiculous to follow, or maybe they were just a hot mess.
For me, this was definitely House of Wax. Seriously, what the heck was going on with that? Besides for the infamous Paris Hilton death scene, which was just hilarious and almost made it worthwhile, House of Wax was badly acted and badly directed, with terrible visual effects and a laughable premise. The only thing that scared me was the fact that I paid to watch it in the first place. On the other hand, I couldn’t sleep properly after watching Saw, but friends of mine found it downright boring.
So there you are with the lights dimmed and popcorn in hand, looking for something to scare you into an adrenalin high… and all you get is a snore-fest. Let us know: what scary movie disappointed you the most?
