Space: Where horror franchises go to die. There has never been a single horror sequel set in space that was remotely good. Yet moviemakers repeatedly go to this bone-dry well for a "creative new twist" on an established franchise. We didn't think it was possible for a film to be "so bad it's good, but then it's just bad again," but these seven mythological film characters proved us wrong. WARNING: While these slides are safe for work and mind, all of the clips go to horror movies. We left out videos of gore and nudity, but don't click on the links unless you want a horror movie clip and all its cursing, violence and general mayhem popping up on your computer.
