10 Critically Acclaimed Horror Movies That Were Box Office Bombs

"Often, Horror movies feel designed for the big screen. With their creepy atmospherics, moody developments, and monsters lurking in the shadows, the scares in these immersive genre features are most effective in the theatre. Unfortunately, not every film beloved by critics does well with moviegoing audiences. Now that making movies is more expensive than ever, the chances of releasing a box office bomb are greater.
A film is labeled a box office bomb when it generates less money in theatres than it cost to produce. So many factors play into a film yielding disappointing returns. It can be related to bad timing, bad promotion, or a lack of mainstream appeal. When it comes to critically acclaimed horror that flops at the box office, many get a second chance with home video releases or streaming – becoming cult classics with enduring legacies."
