10 Most Disappointing Horror Movies of the Last Two Decades

I think the horror genre may be the genre that disappoints me consistently. Recently a Redditor asked, “Which horror movie you had high expectations for ended up being a big disappointment?"

"For me, it has to be Insidious and, more recently, “Black phone.” I didn't understand the hype around that movie. Very predictable and boring.” Here are the top-voted horror fan responses.  

Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2022)

One person admitted, “Disappointed about the 2022 Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie. It's one of the most insulting movies I've ever seen—the way they treat the character of Sally and throw her in the trash.”  

Candyman (2021)

One user said, “Candyman (2021). I think it had a lot of good ideas, but its biggest downfall is that it has three writers, and it shows. A very disorganized movie that sadly doesn't work for me. I was also very annoyed that the ending was a strobe nightmare. I had to close my eyes the entire time.” 

Malignant (2021)

Wonderwarth0g expressed, “Totally with you. Malignant was a horrible misstep. But some people seem to love it – I wish I were one of them!” 

Hellraiser (2022)

One user expressed, “I feel like I am in the minority here, but I was very disappointed in the new Hellraiser movie.” SharkMilk44 replied, “People praise this movie because it's the first time this franchise has been watchable in 25 years.” 

It Comes at Night (2017)

Liamdhenning admitted, “I saw this in theaters, and as soon as the credits came on, some dude stood up and yelled, ‘It Comes at Night?? What comes at night?? Fureaking nothing!' It was hilarious and accurate.”  

The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It (2021)

Tiredandstupid82 answered, “Yep. The first two Conjurings are the only good ones in the series. Unfortunately, the third Conjuring is just awful. I'll always enjoy Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson's on-screen chemistry, but that movie was trash.”
