Top 10 turkeys
The Meg (12) Had its fun moments, but dodgy dialogue and a plodding pace saw it end up all at sea.
Bad Samaritan (15) A thriller that started off well before falling into generic tropes and silly shifts in character.
Mandy (18) A second slot for Nicolas Cage. Critics inexplicably adored this pretentious, frustrating oddity.
Venom (15) Tom Hardy tried his best but couldn’t save a tonal mess.The worst comic-book flick of 2018.
The Hurricane Heist (12) This full-of-wind actioner defied realism while somehow falling short of pulse-racing action.
Mile 22 (18) An intriguing set-up got bogged down with plot strands that went nowhere and unlikeable leads.
Mom and Dad (15) Even by Nicolas Cage’s manic standards, he was over-the-top in this terribly scripted mess.
The Nun (15) A major letdown as it failed to build on a terrifying presence set up in the Conjuring series.
Death Wish (15) BruceWillis slept-walked his way through this ill-advised, cliched remake.
Winchester (15) One thing a horror movie should never be is dull, but not even Helen Mirren could liven this up.
