This film shows no story, drama, psychology, gore, humor or anything.

For many years, I thought that "Horror of the Blood Monsters" was the worst movie I've ever watched in my whole life.

but with no plot.

well i have watched many movies before, and there have been a few stinkers,, like mary reilly, man with a gun, but this one, is there even words to describe how AWFUL this movie is.. this movie keeps repeating itself over and over, and some of the music,, horrible, why put frank sinatra's music in here, this was by far the WORST movie i have ever watched, my wife couldn't manage to keep her eyes open, she told me to go throw it in the fireplace.

There was no plot.

The production values of a high-school movie made by teenagers who would rather be doing something else HELP to make this the worst movie ever made.

Pretentious filler by wannabe artists.

I've been renting straight to video crap all year and this is the worst movie I've found so far.

A Second vote for Worst Movie ever made .

only made it to the slasher scene and had to turn off & had enough.

Totally predictable as well.

Watching this movie is a waste of time .

I believe that this is the worst movie I've ever seen....

Worst movie I have ever seen!

This premise is fascinating and better than most.

This is the worst movie I have ever seen.

Don't waste your time or money.

Dialogue is incoherent, acting is either languid or over-the-top, and the soundtrack is utterly inappropriate.

scenes were long and slow...

Granted, some films can succeed with such problems, but this film fails on all levels, because the plot is boring to begin with and was so ridiculous.

Working at a video store I have encountered the intentional confusion these ripoffs create time and time again.

After I saw The Raven recently and enjoyed it I decided to give this one a go and I found it to be gory and exciting - do not know what the problem is with some people on here.

All the murder scenes are very slow and boring and each killing is nearly identical the the last.

The gore is repetitive and boring.

this movie is the biggest waste of time/money.

I've always had a little obsession with cold cases (I'm a police officer in Colorado), and while this movie is lacking what other, high-budget films can bring to the table, I enjoyed it thoroughly.

The worst movie I have ever seen in my 40 plus years of watching.

Even writing this comment is showing it too much attention - don't waste your time and money on it!

the so-called climactic sequence was extremely tedious.

The rest of the cast kept me yawning with their lack of personality or anything interesting to say.

This must be the worst movie I've ever seen.

Please don't waste your money on this wipe-out.

the worst movie I have ever seen (the first 4 minutes of) I actually really enjoyed the opening shot of a vintage Hollywood sign framed in palm trees.

More importantly, it was a waste of my time looking it up on Netflix and watching it once it arrived.

BUT if it took more than that, then that was a collosial waste of taxpayers money.

The directors' use of camera angles was stupid, awful, and in some instances got annoying, due to stupid and repetitive scenes that literally mad no sense.

Did I want to see a dry and pretentious films with a bunch of over paid actors and a dollar wasted budget?

Worst movie ever made.

Over and over, to the point where seeing people drilled and bisected actually becomes boring.

No plot.

Then we are taken to modern LA and forced to endure the worst display of establishing shots imaginable (long boring static shots that are clearly composed sans tripod).

The filler and fluff that they tried to put in the movie to create the "scary," more like laughable, mood was a waste of time.

No plot.

WORST MOVIE EVER MADE....

In order to compare Lommel's and De Palma's "Black Dahlias", I have borrowed and watched both movies and given the latter a "1", because De Palma's movie is pretentious.

" Ed Wood was called by many the worst director of all-time, but his enthusiasm and love of cinema, made his films somewhat enjoyable in their "badness.

unwatchable .

I have seen a couple of other Ulli Lommel movies and despite the small budgets I usually find them quite entertaining and some of them like BTK Killer are pretty good at freaking you out.

This was by far the worst movie with the worst plot I have ever seen.

They're simply are the worst movie detectives ever!

There was absolutely no plot, the acting was atrocious, and the cinematography was unbelievably awful.

terrible footage, no plot...

This DAHLIA is boring, repetitious, pretentious and laughable.

The premise of this film gives an exciting take on one scenario that I didn't see coming.

This is shot on someone's camcorder, has no plot, the acting is terrible, the dialogue is terrible, it has stupid annoying effects and cuts made on someone's PC or Mac.

Even that was a waste of time!

Please don't waste your time or money renting or buying or watching this awful movie.

worst movie....

but this version of Black Dahlia, which I mistook for the Josh Hartnett one, is unwatchable.

What in God's name possessed these so called filmmakers to juxtapose zillions of tiresome black and white freeze frames after every investigation team shot?

Every student-film cliché in the book is in this movie and put along side Ulli Lommel's worthless skills as a director, this film comes together to make a giant waste of time.

The killers kill in very long slow boring scenes before leaving body parts for the police.

The "story" consists of the repetitive casting of new victims for the leather-masked, never explained butcher and the likewise unintelligible porn-star/anti-heroine egging him on.

What a waste of 3 minutes of my life!.

If you don't take it seriously, its actually entertaining.
