Horror films with terrible Rotten Tomatoes scores that you should watch anyway
Horror is one of the genres most often maligned by critics, coming in below "movies starring Robert DeNiro as someone's dad" but above "movies about sentient emojis." On one hand, this is because a lot of horror movies are pretty awful. They earn their bad reviews and then some.
But horror is also the genre most often misunderstood by critics, largely because what makes a good horror movie isn't always what constitutes a good film in the context of other genres. Because of this, a number of great horror films happen to be critical failures. The average viewer might avoid some of these movies for their low Rotten Tomatoes scores, but that number can be deceiving—many of horror cinema's critical failures are actually very much worth your time.
