16. The Devil Inside (2012)
> Genre: Horror
> Director: William Brent Bell
> Starring: Fernanda Andrade, Simon Quarterman, Evan Helmuth, Ionut Grama
> Gross: $53.3 million

“The Devil Inside” combines two of the horror genre’s most popular trends at the time of its release — found footage and a plot involving an exorcism. The results disappointed critics, however, who found it “a cheap, choppy, unscary mess” with “one of the worst endings in recent memory,” according to Critics Consensus on Rotten Tomatoes. Only 6% of critics delivered positive reviews on the site, and 22% of audiences liked it.

> Director: Chris Sivertson
> Starring: Lindsay Lohan, Julia Ormond, Neal McDonough, Bonnie Aarons
> Gross: $7.5 million

Lindsay Lohan stars as Aubrey Fleming — as well as Dakota Moss — in this 2007 serial killer mystery. The Critics Consensus for Rotten Tomatoes called the movie “a career nadir for all involved.” Only 9% of critics on Rotten Tomatoes liked the movie, which has a rating of 3.6 out of 10 among IMDb users. The movie received eight Razzie Awards, including two for Lohan for each character she played.

French director Eric Valette remade the popular Japanese movie about people who receive phone calls from the future in which they hear themselves murdered.

13. The Apparition (2012)
> Genre: Horror, Thriller
> Director: Todd Lincoln
> Starring: Ashley Greene, Sebastian Stan, Tom Felton, Julianna Guill
> Gross: $4.9 million

“The Apparition” made the worst mistake a horror film can make — it wasn’t scary. Only 3% of critics on Rotten Tomatoes liked the film. Perhaps Entertainment Weekly critic Keith Staskiewicz summed up the general sentiment best by saying, “Might give you a restless night, but only because you fell asleep in the theater.”

12. Daddy Day Camp (2007)
> Genre: Comedy, Family
> Director: Fred Savage
> Starring: Cuba Gooding Jr., Lochlyn Munro, Richard Gant, Tamala Jones
> Gross: $13.2 million

Two men with little knowledge of the outdoors take over a deteriorating summer day camp in this cringe-worthy sequel to “Daddy Day Care” that combines humor about bodily functions and mawkish sentimental scenes about parent-child bonding. The movie, directed by “Wonder Years” actor Fred Savage and starring Oscar-winner Cuba Gooding Jr. (Best Supporting Actor for “Jerry Maguire”), got a 1% Freshness rating from critics on Rotten Tomatoes. It was nominated for five Razzie Awards and “won” for Worst Prequel or Sequel.
