Today our list will be inserted in a cruel niche of cinema: bad films that are real insults to intelligence. Below are ten works that are wrong in almost everything they intend to do, making the spectator’s experience of watching them a martyrdom. It is also worth saying that we value including works that are a little more popular, many with large budgets, but equally terrible. Let’s get to the list!
10º – Fear (James Foley, 1996)A teenager believes she found the perfect man, starting a beautiful relationship with him. However, that man hides secrets and behaviors that may endanger the young woman and her whole family. ‘Fear’ is a suspenseful film that offers few positive fragments to her spectator, working with a superficial plot and that always fails to exaggerate in her situations. Perhaps the only positive point of the whole work is the couple of protagonists of the story, commanded by Mark Wahlberg and Reese Witherspoon.
9º – Blade (Stephen Norrington, 1998)A mysterious man embarks on a real crusade hunting the vampires that are tormenting his city. In the course of his journey, the man – who is also half vampire – will get a sketch of the worst in the world. ‘Blade’ has a positive start, with an action scene inside a ballad that impresses and amuses. However, this is the only event that pleases those who watch it. Its ridiculous and flawless plot makes it impossible for the spectator to take the slightest amount of seriousness. As if it wasn’t enough, the direction of the film (with the exception of the first scene mentioned above) borders on the unacceptable.
8º – Close (Vicky Jewson, 2019)In this original work by Netflix, we will see the adventures of a bodyguard in another work that seems normal, but that hides a malicious plan with a financial bias. Horrorous from the first to the last scene, ‘Close’ is a real insult to the viewer. Nothing, absolutely nothing, is saved here. The plot, direction and cast are in their worst form, not even the presence of the good actress Noomi Rapace saves.
