A few days ago we gave you our list of Anticipated Movies of 2013, but for every movie you can’t wait to see there are always ones you know you want to avoid, even without seeing a trailer. With that said, here are the movies we can’t wait to see disappear from the big screen.
A Haunted House (January 11th) – Shouldn’t this movie be called Scary Movie 5? Sure the movie may have a laugh or two in it, after all it’s been awhile since Marlon Wayans was part of the Scary Movie franchise, but it still looks to be pretty lame. If anything it may help kill the Paranormal Activity Franchise.
Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters (January 25th) – You might think a movie produced by Will Ferrell would be a comedy, and if that was the case for this flick it might be excused for looking as terrible as it sounds. Unfortunately it’s not. Jeremy Renner has made a lot of great movies in the last few years, but we seriously doubt this is going to be one of them. This movie about a brother and sister witch hunting team can’t disappear fast enough in our view.
Scary Movie 5 (April 12) – Didn’t this franchise die out a few years ago after the Wayans’ and Anna Ferris jumped ship? Apparently not. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any lower, they went and hired Lindsay Lohan for a role. This one appears to spoof not only horror movies, but dance movies such as Step Up as well.
Evil Dead (April 12) – An Evil Dead movie without Sam Raimi directing? Say it isn’t so! At least he serves as one of the producers, and has Diablo Cody writing the script for this remake of the 1981 cult classic. Still there is no way it can possibly ever fill in for the original, or for Bruce Campbell. At least Bruce has a cameo in the flick.
The Smurfs 2 (July 31st) – Maybe it’s not fair to put a children’s movie on this list, after all they have much different tastes than we do, but really, a sequel? This show was much better in the 80′s as a weekly cartoon then a lengthy movie at a theater.
300: Rise Of An Empire (August 2nd) – So let’s get this straight, this prequel to the hit 2006 movie starring Gerard Butler and directed by Zach Snyder takes place before the bloody battle of the previous movie? Who really cares what happened before. And without the main star and the director from the first movie there is no way it can be as good.
Paranormal Activity 5 (October 25th) – After this year’s snorefest Paranormal Activity 4 it was pretty apparent that they’ve run out of ways to scare the audience with the whole ‘I’ve got a camera and I’m going to record the ghosts in my house’ routine, but they went and made yet another one. Each year the sequels make less and less money at the box office, but unfortunately the franchise costs very little to make so there will probably be more to follow.
