JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT 2012 MIGHT NOT PROVIDE the NECESSARY NUMBER of RAZZIE® CONTENDERS COMES... 

THE POSSESSION!

ALMOST as DOOFY-LOOKING as LAST WEEK's APPARITION, (and TWICE as GENERIC) POSSESSION IS LIKE a SMUDGY, 39-YEARS-LATER XEROX of 1973's ORIGINAL EXORCIST (WHICH, IF YOU GO BACK and RE-WATCH IT, YE OLDE HEAD RAZZ-BERRY BELIEVES IS ONE of the MOST UNDER-APPRECIATED FUNNY HORROR MOVIES of ALL TIME). 

THE ONLY PROBLEM HERE: WHO WILL EVEN REMEMBER THIS MOVIE 5 MONTHS from NOW  WHEN WE'RE VOTING OUR

BELOW IS YOUR CHANCE to MAKE the CASE for KEEPING POSSESSION in MIND (and in CONTENTION) AZ ONE of THIS YEAR's WORST ACHIEVEMENTS in FILM...


OH, and HERE's the LINK to CHECK OUT HEAD RAZZ-BERRY's FOTO FUNNY on THIS FILM...  

AND HERE's the LINK for ADDITIONAL INFO (REVIEWS, PROMOs, CREDITS, and cetera) on POSSESSION... 


Ye Olde Head RAZZberry

And why does Oogieloves get a pass?  


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: POSSESSION is opening on 700 more screens than OOGIELOVES, and is therefor a wider release (and a stronger contender). As always, if you feel strongly about OOGIELOVES (which I doubt I could ever convince myself to watch) here's the LINK to create a Member-Started Forum on it... 
 

Oh, you think Exorcist is unintentionally funny? Fine, but be prepared for "blowback" -- Not everyone is going to agree!    


Elizabeth Hartman and Judith Barsi are more talented and beautiful than Scarlett Johansson and Chloe Grace Moretz. Fact.

Worst Supporting Actor: Brendan Fraser/Gimme Shelter and The Nut Job

Hang on. Let's wait a couple days to see if OOGIELOVES deserves to be the Bonus Worst of the Week.

Kyra Sedgwick and Jeffrey Dean Morgan's track record is nothing to be proud of. They've been in a bunch of stinkers (specially since they became stars). And director Ole Bornedal's only other American movie was a remake of his own movie, and it was made 14 years ago.

I just can't see how to decide if this or APPARITION looks worse (even though this one has a more clever premise). So we'll just have to watch them and decide for ourselves.

I liked THE EXORCIST, but yeah, it did have some unintentional funny moments. By the way, does this mean you're back to writing your take in the discussion thread, while your photo funny will be placed separately?

Well, this can't be as bad as The Apparition -- The trailer for it looks pretty nifty.

When I saw Prometheus at a midnight showing, everyone in the theater laughed at the trailer for this!

Before, Head RAZZberry would write only a short comment. Now, he's writing his full take on each film...

R.T. (around 30%): "It may be based on a true story, but that doesn't excuse the way it repeatedly falls back on hoary ghost movie clichés... or the uninentional laughs it provides".

Anything is better than EXORCIST 2! 

By the way, as I've said in the past, I don't like when exorcism movies are called "rip-offs" of THE EXORCIST just for being about exorcism. That has become a sub-genre.

Unless it has bat-nipples, it's guaranteed to be better than Exoricst II.

Despite the negative reviews, critics have praised the directing and acting. So it doesn't seem like a contender, unless the Worst Excuse for Horror category comes back.

Apparently, Exorcist II: The Heretic was released Jne. 17, 1977, less than 3 years before The Golden Raspberry Award Foundation. If you people REALLY think The Heretic is worse than any of the 200X Worst Picture of the Decade finalists, then it's certainly dodged its fair share of RAZZberry jelly! Besides, the other two Exorcist sequels had to have matched The Heretic in reekage, but I consider Exorcist 4: The Beginning to be the worst because it was released in the New Millennium.
 
I heard someone say this was an exorcism film that shifts the genre's focus from Roman Catholic to Judaism. The dybbuk is a Jewish folklore spirit reputed to reside in an ancient wine cabinet, and that's the focus of this film. While The Haunting in Connecticut from the winter of 2009 featured what looked like **** billowing out of the characters' mouths, this time it's ivy and/or grape vines!
