1. The Book of Henry – Possibly our favourite terrible movie of the year, The Book of Henry is a mawkish and incredibly misjudged drama about a mum who considers becoming a murderous vigilante after her dead son leaves her a home-made training manual explaining how to assassinate their abusive neighbour.
2. Underworld: Blood Wars – Let’s face it, the main reason people still turn up to these movies is to see Kate Beckinsale in PVC trousers, so it’s perhaps churlish to point out that the franchise has gone seriously cold. This one is a deeply un-fun actioner for no one but die-hard fans.
3. Rings – Remember when Ringu came out and how terrifying and important it was? Yeah, well don’t ruin that memory by going to see this attempted franchise reboot which had a glimmer of promise in the premise (research students operate a controlled unit of people watching and passing on the video to study its effects) which it then squanders in favour of another generic back-story arc. Depressingly un-scary.
