Add to that:

Street Fighter - one of few movies that i didnt even watch halfway, at that point it was so bad and was so many years ago.
Judge Dredd - Sly version is real bad
Conan - New Conan movie from last year had so horrible script and acting
Dungeons & Dragons - Expected atleast something watchable from this classic rpg adaption
Elektra - Just horrible
Batman forever/Batman & Robin - Bad

just what quickly comes to mind, there must be 100 others

In comparison to what, the Arnie one?

The new Conan had its issues but it was a far closer representation of Conan than the 80's classic.

Conan has been amongst my favourite comics and i agree its closer, but movie is adaption and its execution is terrible.

He's copy/pasted the premise for a Cracked.com photoplasty competition- you could have at least rewritten the sentences, pleb.

I'd say remake Charlotte's Web.

Unbeknownst to Wilbur the pig, Charlotte the spider has implanted him with her eggs. She spins her webs to keep the pig from premature slaughter, biding her time, waiting for her children to burst forth upon the gathering country fair crowd.

Yeah, that should traumatize some children right there.

That's awesome!

How about Narnia...with a real lion. Might be a bit short though.

Or 5 children and IT (as in steven kings)

Well If Alice has already been done, why not have the classic book "The Twits?" I remember this book when I was a child and it was a little disturbed but if you made it a dark film I think it could pass as a horror movie.
