Here's one end of the year list that dominated by horror: Film Drunk's list of the 10 weakest box office performers of the year.
That's right, fright fanciers, scare flicks disproportionately dominate the list with a whopping 40% of the year's biggest clunkers stinking up the bottom of the barrel. Here's the breakdown by genre:
To be fair, this list is the product of a very specific methodology: the losers were determined strictly by box office take. Because cost isn't figured in, you get a very skewed sense of the disaster these flicks may or may not represent. For example, I can't imagine any of these flicks was a fiasco on the scale of the Airbender flick, though that film certainly took in more at the box office.
Still, nearly half? And one of which was turned in by a guy regularly hailed as a master of the genre?
Oh, well. There's always next year.
