    Ok, so I’m about a month late but here is my nomination for the worst movie: Susperia. I hated it! Thought it was the biggest piece of crap I seen to that moment and what, to me, makes it worse is that it has become some kind of cult megahit. I can’t believe the times this comes up on someone’s top horror list.
