With the new year comes a new list of remake/reboot films, and this first week of 2020 we got my childhood favourite’s horror remake, The Grudge. Now, I have no idea why would anyone in their right mind want to reboot this, but they did, and they have a pretty decent cast. However, as per today the ratings are in and The Grudge (2020) received a low score from world’s famous aggregator, Rotten Tomatoes.
Funnily, this is not the first time a horror remake scored low on the website. Want to know which of the other film tanked with the critics and moviegoers as well? Read on.
The Grudge (2020)
The Grudge remake only scored 11% on the website.
The Mummy (2017)
Tom Cruise’s horror flick scored 16%, but earned almost US$400 million in the box-office!
Friday The 13th (2009)
The remake of the beloved 80s horror film only scored 26%.
The Last House on the Left (2009)
Another remake of the 70s horror scored a bit higher compared to other on the list, but still failed to reach average score with only 42% rating.
Black Christmas (2019)
Okay perhaps there are no ghost here, but the classic Christmas slasher remake was one of the most-anticipated release of 2019. Alas, it only scored 40% on Rotten Tomatoes.
Last but not least, Rings, possibly the worse horror film continuation that I can’t resist to not include on the list. The F. Javier Gutiérrez’s film scored the lowest with only 8% on Rotten Tomatoes.
However, it managed to earn US$83 million worldwide, with a US$25 million budget.
