The 15 Worst Horror Films Ever Made
"Manos: The Hands of Fate" is the worst horror movie ever made (unless the version you're watching involves a schlub named Joel and his robot friends).   (YouTube)

As anyone familiar with the works of Uwe Boll can attest, there are no shortage of atrocious horror films out there. And 24/7 Wall St. reports that's no accident. Horror films can be successful on a small budget—see Blair Witch Project or Paranormal Activity—but can also crash and burn with one. They attract new directors, such as Sam Raimi and Peter Jackson, who are just learning the ropes. And horror fans are so dedicated they'll see pretty much anything—and often expect a bit of slapdash cheesiness as part of the deal. Using critic and audience ratings from Rotten Tomatoes and user ratings on IMDb, 24/7 Wall St. ranked the 50 worst horror films of all time. Here are the 15 at the bottom of the barrel (Don't worry, Boll is well-represented):

1. Manos: The Hands of Fate
2. House of the Dead
3. Alone in the Dark
4. Birdemic: Shock and Terror
5. Jersey Shore Massacre
6. The Human Centipede III (Final Sequence)
7. Jaws: The Revenge

8. BloodRayne
9. Feardotcom
10. The Fog
11. Jaws 3-D
12. The Apparition
13. The Haunting of Molly Hartley
14. The Devil Inside
15. Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation
