15Winona Ryder - Lost Souls
Lost Souls (2000) is a hot mess. A horror thriller that borrows from more films than we care to list here, it was a box office flop and a sign that Winona Ryder’s reign atop Hollywood’s A-list was coming to an end. She gives an incredibly amateurish performance, almost as though
she forgot everything that made her such a good actress to begin. Her line delivery is oddly flat, her reactions are exaggerated at times and too subdued in others.
Ryder’s tenure on Stranger Things proves that she knows how to play fear and paranoia expertly, making the ineptitude of Lost Souls even more confusing. The film has a 7% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, making it her lowest release to date, and was ranked 95 on the site’s 100 worst-reviewed movies of the 2000s.
