17 Of The Worst-Aged Horror Movies Of All Time
By SlashNews Staff
Basket Case
"Basket Case" follows conjoined twins Duane (Kevin Van Hentenryck) and Belial (a puppet) as they wreak havoc on anyone who crosses them.
The shifting tones and B-movie grizzle of "Basket Case" both age the film, but nothing makes it unwatchable quite like the horrendous ending sequence that comes out of nowhere.
Children of the Corn
"Children of the Corn ” could not feel more dated. This "Lord of the Flies” riff might be good on paper, but the film comes coated with a greasy slice of 80s cheese.
When combined with the horrible child voice-overs, the comedic over-acting, and trite film cues, "Children of the Corn” is downright…corny.
Don't Breathe
The tale of some hapless thieves who fall into a blind predator's den and get more than they bargained for is built around an extremely ill-advised plot twist.
When "Don't Breathe" first came to theaters it was lauded for its tightly constructed suspense but if you break down the story, there's really nothing that works today.
The Evil Dead
"The Evil Dead" was groundbreaking in a lot of ways, paving the way for indie horror throughout the 1980s, but one scene probably should have been left out.
The all-time horror classic is a hyper-violent romp with no shortage of blood, guts, and gore, but it also has a completely unnecessary rape scene.
Freddy vs. Jason
Child murderer Freddy Krueger from "Nightmare on Elm Street," and Jason Voorhees of "Friday the 13th” have an epic showdown in “Freddy vs. Jason.”
For all the hype the long-awaited film received, "Freddy vs Jason" hasn't really aged well, and so much of what poorly dates the horror feature lies in the unnecessary.
