apparitionIt’s Oscar weekend, which means it’s once again time for The Haiku Review to reveal its best and worst films of last year. This time around, the barrel’s bottom was scraped by scarily bad horror films, shriveled old action stars, and a fairly tale adaptation that won’t leave you living happily ever after. So without further ado, here are the five worst films of 2012.

1. The Apparition

No, you’re not seeing
things: incompetence haunts this
execrable mess.

mirror2. Mirror Mirror

You’ll get seven years
of bad luck after watching
this broken Mirror.

devil inside3. The Devil Inside

A horror film so
bad Satan asked to have his
name taken off it.

expendables 24. The Expendables 2

A bunch of has-been
action stars stand around and
recite catchphrases.

trouble with the curve5. Trouble with the Curve

Grumpy old Eastwood
has trouble peeing in a
film that’s full of crap.

Now the Haiku Review wants to know: what films did think were the worst of the year?
