2018 is officially half-way done, and while the year has undeniably served up a number of incredible movies - perhaps most notably Black Panther, Annihilation, A Quiet Place, Avengers: Infinity War and Hereditary - it's also delivered its share of hot cinematic garbage.
These 20 movies, ranging from ambitious blockbusters to low-rent Netflix Originals you've probably never even heard of, represent the very worst that cinema has had to offer in 2018 so far.

Historically speaking the first half of any year serves up more duds than the back-end - which is typically heavy with awards-friendly fare - but that doesn't mean the remainder of 2018 won't offer its share of shameless dumpster fires. For now, though, these are the 20 worst movies of 2018...
