What is your WORST blind buy ever?

We had a best one, so I figure a "worst" could work too.

Mine would be the 3 disc of Mystic River. I thought the movie was good, but a) have no use for the soundtrack and b) will never watch it again


What would yours be?

Ringu. Man that movie sucked!
Spoiler:
they get to the whole story by one of the characters randomly saying he's a psychic and just tells us the whole backstory?!??!
Stick with the American version!

Zombi

Shite. Not Fulci's best. When the best sequence is a zombie fighting a shark (!), and best mostly because of the sheer "WTF!?!?" value, there's probably some problems.

Daredevil

My wife wanted it and couldn't even finish watching it. The Evanescence music video was far better than the movie itself.

I looked at your collection and wonder if you really think that Night of the Living Dead is worse than...

Oh. I bought the novel a couple of days ago. We'll see how that goes.

I was going to respond to this, because I don't see how such a highly acclaimed film can be considered a "worst" anything...but I've never seen the film and I don't feel like jumping into an arguement that will only serve to make me look like a fanboy. That comment just struck me in the same way as those people who say, "(Insert highly acclaimed film) is the worst movie ever!!"

Six-String Samurai. I ended up selling it on half.com a week after I bought it.
