Anyone who quickly denounced Madonna's "Swept Away" as being the worst film of 2002 clearly hadn't seen "13th Child."

Audience Reviews for 13th Child

It's probably a cheesy piece of crap, but I'd still like to see it to see how close to the actual legend they got it. UPDATE: Well, it is disgustingly cheesy! I lost a lot of respect for Cliff Robertson; supposedly, he penned the script, or at least helped with it, & got a writing credit for this piece trash...

I Couldn't take anymore freaking Christmas Movies, I reached extreme burnout at 23, so I return to watching a low-budget horror flick the 13th Child which is about the Jersey Devil. Some of the special effect are great, some not, best one is at the end. The Jersey Devil is a monster that runs around the Pine Barrens of New Jersey along with the bodies disposed of by Tony Soprano. The movie itself has 2 men and a women trying to track down who is mutilating bodies in the jersey woods. Not a bad movie, a B movie for sure, worth the rent or a pawn shop pick up, awe its great to be back in real trashy movies. 3 1/2 stars

This is honestly the worst film i have ever seen. I always talk about this film to people and tell them to see it if they want to see the worst movie ever made. For some reason it's not letting me give it a 0 so i have to give it 10. weird.
