Webster dictionary defines a cinemaholic as someone who has an undying passion and love for movies. Even bad ones. There is absolutely nothing more gut-wrenching for a movie aficionado to watch a movie which timid in its ambition, and poor in the execution. Over the years, there have been a select few which have ensconced themselves with rigid assuredness in our conscience. These horrible movies have a hoi polloi if victims, with many rating sites going on to pan them. One such site, Rotten Tomatoes, is perhaps the most globally accepted standard of recognizing a movie. The erudite critics and the ardent fans make for a deadly combination, and hence produce one of the most in-depth and comprehensive of reflections of the movie.
We, therefore, decided to take a macabre sojourn to the past, to list out some movies so bad, they were rated a ZERO on Rotten Tomatoes. Happy reading! Or, just read. (sigh)
10. Cabin Fever (2016)
No, not the first one. Apart from the classic paradoxes in science and technology, one such being The Bermuda Triangle, or how Donald Trump trumped the USA Presidential Elections, there is still one which will never be solved: why Eli Roth decided to remake his own movie? The 2016 horror-flick (literally), is a beat-to-beat remake of Roth’s 2002 film of the same name. The premise follows a group of school friends, who rent a cabin in the woods and kill an ailing man. When his body falls in the reservoir, it contaminates the water in it. One of them drinks it and the journey to hell begins. Though the first movie was a classic, a film more than just some gory scares, and had some credibility, the second had people stumped as to why the movie was made. And there’s a lesson ladies and gentlemen. Never make a movie for commercial reasons.
