Phenomenally Bad Movies Based on Horror Games

1 of 10

While there are individual exceptions, it's a truism that video game movies tend to be bad. Churned out for a quick buck with a built-in fan base, there's rarely any actual care or effort put into them, and it's going to be a cold day in hell before they get any sort of serious critical acclaim.

While everybody points to Super Mario Bros. and Double Dragon as examples of abysmal game movies, it's the horror games that usually the get real short end of the stick. It's a shame too, because there's some amazing material to be mined in horror gaming, but most of the time the transition to screen results in an unwatchable mess.

Of course you're going to find a lot of Uwe Boll here as we round up the worst of the worst, but he's not the only one who has taken fun game series and turned them into utterly awful movie franchises.
