13 Terrible Recent Movies Destined To Become Cult Classics

9. The Cloverfield Paradox

The Cloverfield Paradox

The Cloverfield Paradox is one of those movies we all convinced ourselves we kinda liked for about five minutes because it was shadow-dropped after the Super Bowl and, well, the novelty of watching a Cloverfield movie day-and-date while sitting at home in your pants speaks for itself.

Six months removed from its release, though, the movie was an unmistakable misfire for yet another cinematic universe audiences weren't sure they actually needed.

Stewing in post-production hell for far longer than benefits any production, this manky yet well-acted sci-fi romp at least touts enough misguided insanity to sustain interest for all of its 102 minutes.

Though it's basically a patchwork quilt of better genre efforts that preceded it, the divergences into body horror are legitimately unsettling, and the ending is a barmy delight.
