Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but that doesn’t mean I have to agree with them. While it’s impossible to objectively state that someone is wrong about their hatred (or passion for) a film, some folks come pretty close to proving that axiom wrong.
I decided to spend some time on IMDB looking at what people had to say about films like The Exorcist, Jaws, The Shining, Gremlins, and Psycho and it’s pretty hilarious when you come across someone who HATES a movie most of us regard as a classic. Even if something like Jaws isn’t your favorite movie, you have to admit that it’s at least halfway decent, right?
So head below for some reviews that boldly fly in the face of conventional wisdom! I applaud them all for their originality!

“Everyone looks like they are wearing the same clothes because the whole thing is in black and white…” and “all the blood is white” ~ because of old people.
“Somehow a black man enters the hotel…” ~ Aside from being racist, did this person watch the beginning of the movie?
This guy complains about the ending yet goes on to praise Scream 2 of all things? And what “professional actors” is he talking about?
THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE (1974)
I dunno, this sounds like the best bus ride ever. Hope they didn’t beat this kid too badly.
“The villain is not shown as someone unstoppable” ~ well, they DON’T stop him actually. So yeah, he is. Actually Freddy and Jason are “stopped” in pretty much all of their movies, Myers is the one who keeps on going.
Women. Doctors. Priests. Not scary.
2 for one! I think I have to go with the guy up top because he seems to be attempting to make the case that Deep Blue Sea is somehow more realistic.
AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON
Complaining about this movie’s effects work isn’t the best angle from which to make one’s attack.
“Watch ‘The Great Escape’, this will explain how long it takes to move dirt.”
Ok, so this one is a joke. But it’s one of the best damn fake reviews I’ve ever read.
