Not really sure we should put much focus on this. Heck, the only person that stars in this movie that has a Wiki page is this guy named Simon Quarterman.
 
And now, a little off topic, but I think I want to showcase what to really look out for in January: Contraband, Joyful Noise, Underworld: Awakening, Man on a Ledge, and One for the Money.

One For The Money is, easily, going to be the worst of those movies. In fact, that's the one "non-Seltzerberg" movie that I'm dreading the most!

I am kind of fearing that (with the box office being the way it is) we might be looking forward to a lot more "found footage" horror movies.... These are (thanks to their cheap budgets) very safe bets for the studios...  


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: I'm sure it's not a coincidence that DEVIL INSIDE is being released by Paramount, the same studio that has reaped such enormous profits from the PARANORMAL franchise, which is arguably the impetus for the "rebirth" of this "genre" (which dates back to BLAIR WITCH over a decade ago)...

I'd personally add Red Tails to that list.... and maybe lose Contraband (which looks kind of bland and doesn't look very memorable). But that's just my opinion....

Pardon my self-important tone, but didn't I bring this movie up? It looked to me like the worst film for the first weekend of the year, in other words, the first bad film out of the gate in 2012. If my memory (or rather the old release schedules for every year since Y2K) is correct, these are the past "First Bad Films Out Of the Gate":
 
2000: Isn't She Great (#14 on the Bottom 40 Films of 2000)
2001: The Wedding Planner (#9 on the Bottom 40 Films of 2001)
2002: either Slackers (#37) or the 4th Tenor (#36)
2003: Just Married (#13 on the Bottom 40 Films of 2003)
2004Along Came Polly (#10 on the Bottom 40 Films of 2004)
2005: White Noise (#31 on the Bottom 40 Films of 2005)
2006: BloodRayne (#3 on the Bottom 40 Films of 2006)
2007: Happily N'Ever After (#27) and Code Name: The Cleaner (#6)
2008: One Missed Call (#29 on the Bottom 40 Films of 2008)
2009: Bride Wars (#10) and The Unborn (#19)
2010: Leap Year (#36) and Crazy on the Outside (Dishonorable Mention)
2011: Season of the Witch (Most likely will be #7 on the Bottom 40 Films of 2011)
 
Now it's come to this. At first, I thought this film meant trouble because The Devil Inside is also the name of a video game, and the reputation of video game movies is obvious. This film will at least be worth this discussion if it gets below 20% at Rotten T, and will warrant our (or at least MY) attention if it gets below 10% at Rotten T and/or less than 25% at Metacritic.

I would like to point out that Mark Whalberg and Giovanni Ribisi, two of the stars of Contraband, are also going to be in a movie called Ted, which will be written by, directed by, and featuring the voice of Seth MacFarlane, creator of Family Guy. Kate Beckinsale, who's also in Contraband, will also star in Underworld 4 and Total Remake- I mean, Recall. So, no, don't lose Contraband.

In my mind, it is the final installment of a unofficial Flashy Invasion-trilogy, the other movies in that trilogy being Skyline and Battle: L.A., and I doubt if this movie will be much funnier as those other two...

Talking about Skyline... isn't Skyline 2 also supposed to be released this year....

Cuba has nothing to do with it... It's multiple factors that makes me believe that it will be bad... The director (who's only other film is rated at 24% on RT), the producer being George Lucas, the fact that it's a movie with an oscar-baity premise being released in January, but most of all the special effects... I don't know if you've seen the trailer (if not here's a http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BpA6TC0T_Lw - link ) but there are some very cheap looking CGI planes in the movie and more importantly a lot of the fight scenes with the planes look like CGI-overload.... There is just simply too much happening on the screen.... I kind of have the same gut-feeling as I had with the special effects in movies like Sucker Punch and Battle: L.A....

I could still be wrong off course... The non-CGI parts might be very good and inspiring... maybe the reviews will be okay... It's clearly just an opinion of mine and you can give it as much value as you want...

George Lucas hasn't even produced any films outside of Star Wars and Indiana Jones in years (and both of those scored Fresh Ratings on Rotten Tomatoes might I add). The only thing he has produced with negative reviews was the Star Wars animated film, and even that spawned a successful animated series. Just because you don't like him (and a lot of people don't), doesn't mean critics hate Lucasfilms in general.

Also this is the first feature motion picture for the director. What movie has he done that has scored 24% on rotten tomatoes, because I can't find it?

Whatsthepoint, Okay... forget Lucas...forget the director... It's still a January-release with some awfull looking special-effects and therefor doesn't look to me like a movie that will be very succesfull with critics and audiences... Is it Razzie-worthy... I honoustly don't know.... We'll just have to see when the reviews come in....

I don't know about this one. At first, it seemed like a forgettable, bland film. However, the recent red band trailer peaked my interest quite a bit because I wasn't expecting this to be rated R. It could go either way, I suppose.

Wow! When I read that THE DARKEST HOUR was the last forum of 2011, I didn't think we'd have another one right away.

I haven't even read about this week's releases so I'll trust that this one deserves the forum.

As for the first releases of each year, if you look at GTA's list, you'll notice that those movies had reasons to be remembered by the end of the year, mainly having Razzie nominees, winners or contenders. But I can't find an abvious reason for this to be considered...

The first review finally came in on this -- a reviewer, nicknamed "Uncle Creepy," gave it a positive review. I don't know how reliable he is, but he said it had much of what some people seek in a horror film. 
 
I'm not surprised because the trailers just give off a smell of RAZZberries. Perhaps it's how the voices sound. Perhaps it's all the other sound effects. Perhaps it's the film editing or even the camera filtering that made at least me suspect it even more than usual. If this gets widely panned tomorrow morning, I can return here and say I told you this would be a bad film, just like so many "first bad films out of the gate" before it.
 
Meanwhile, Joyful Noise is still 8 days away, and it already has 2 negative reviews. I hope that's a sign of things to come, because after January 2011 where we only had 3 RAZZIE contenders, we'll be closer to having at least 6 contenders like was the case with January 2008, 2009, and 2010.

Ok, just came back from a "prescreening," and I take back everything I said. This movie sucked! I saw it for free and I still felt ripped off. The movie moves at an incredibly slow pace, with too few cheap scares, all coming too far between. The abrupt ending is like a slap in the face, because there is no payoff. Basically, the movie promises more than it delivers. 

Instead of paying to see the movie, just watch the "red band trailer" that (surprise, surprise) reveals all the good parts in the film...

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Sounds like I need to remind everyone that, while box office failure is often an indicator of RAZZIE® potential, box office "success" does not necessarily protect a film from our consideration. On our 2011 Nominating Ballot (which should be arriving in http://razzies.com/join.asp - mailboxes soon) we have listed many "box office blockbusters" (TWILIGHT SBD #1, TRANNIES #3, ALVIN #3, and cetera)...

This is the fourth year out of five that the year has opened up with a piss poor supernatural film.  In 2008, we had "One Missed Call", a film that tried to stay as faithful as possible to the original Japanese film, but fell apart at the end.  In 2009, there was "The Unborn", a horror flick that I couldn't last ten minutes through because it looked too silly.  There's also 2011's "Season of the Witch", a film that was so poorly directed that it was compared to Uwe Boll's work.  Now in 2012, we have "The Devil Inside", a found footage film that makes "The Blair Witch Project" seem genuine.

Apparently, having your film make $35 million in an opening weekend will get you a lot of project offers. If the news of the director getting to work on the "Vatican" project wasn't enough, he has another project under his belt, which is yet another found footage flick taking place in Romania:  http://www.shocktillyoudrop.com/news/164821-the-devil-inside-team-lines-up-another-horror-movie - http://www.shocktillyoudrop.com/news/164821-the-devil-inside-team-lines-up-another-horror-movie

Other than Chronicle, Project X, and Paranormal Activity 4, I'm not sure if there'll be any others ones coming out, unless we look hard enough...

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

This is one of the worst horror movies I've ever watched. Here are my reasons: 

Screenplay: William Brent Bell and Matthew Peterman have conjured a screenplay that's a mess. All the scenes seem like they've been stapled together rather than flowing like a proper movie. The protagonist and her allies aren't portrayed as people we can support. Instead they seem to be mentally disturbed people who willingly ignore well-established psychological and psychiatric research. They seem to be more like an evil cult than a group of misunderstood good guys. William Brent Bell and Matthew Peterman deserve nominations for Worst Screenplay. 

Directing: William Brent Bell also did a sloppy job as a director. He decided to let the screenplay, actors and film sets to direct itself. It's as if he didn't give a damn, pun intended. He is definitely worthy of the Worst Director nomination. 

This load of garbage is also worthy of Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-off or Sequel. It's is most certainly a trashy knock-off of other, and better, 'video footage' movies. 

Thanks to the sloppy efforts of the Director the main characters have little compatibility or cohesiveness with one another. So this movie should be seriously considered for Worst Screen Couple and Worst Screen Ensemble. 

It trash from beginning to end. Watching this movie is genuine torture.

So you're saying it shouldn't be nominated for Worst Picture?
LOL

I just saw it.

A nagger friend of mine told me the ending, so it didn't shock me. That's the only reason why I considered not putting this in my "Worst movie endings" list. But I put it because, if you start thinking about the ending, it's stupid.

For your consideration:
-Worst Picture.
-Worst Screenplay.
-Worst Excuse For A Horror Movie (or Worst Excuse For A Found Footage Movie, if you create that category).

Well, here we are. 2012's Season Of The Witch. It's a fraction of fraction of a centimeter better than Season Of The Witch. That's not saying much.
 
There's not a single thing about this movie that's enjoyable. I seriously considered giving this a Rotten Asshole.
 
Evan Helmuth gives a crappy performance. He plays one of the priests who helps with the in-universe documentary. I'd put him in the column below, but he has an absolutely hilarious scene towards the end where he gets possessed and tries to drown a baby. This is it for the bad. Yes it's that bad of a movie.
 
Suzan Crowley plays Maria, the woman on the poster with all the crucifixes carved on her. She's somehow both massively over-the-top and boring at the same time. Fernanda Andrade plays her daughter. She's three times as boring as her. She doesn't have any movies on the horizon, thankfully. Director William Brent Bell gives Uwe Boll a run in the incompetancy department. He wrote the screenplay with another hack named Matthew Peterman
 
Time to break out something that I haven't used since Human Centipede II: the super ugly. If you've ever heard about this movie, you know exactly what I'm talking about. The ending. The worst ending since Monster A-Go Go. If Bell shoved the camera up his ass and taped him crapping it out and then wiping his ass with 100 dollar bills, that would have been more satisfying.
 
I REALLY needed to do that! Grade: F
 
Next-up: One For The Money!

I've got to say, The Devil Inside is the worst "found footage" movie I have ever seen. Normally I'd laugh it off, but Devil Inside tries too hard to be creepy or shocking, and to me, came off like an infomercial, with actors desperate to sell me something and trying to convince me to buy their product (and then giving me the link to do so).  

FYC: Worst Picture for The Devil Inside, Worst Director for William Brent Bell

How often is a horrifically (take that any way you want) bad movie that was released in January so reviled that, come December that it makes our Nominating Ballot?  Could The Devil Inside be that movie?
