66 Worst Movies Of All Time

The Maize: The Movie (2004)

The Film: Two girls get lost in a maze field and are hunted by the spirits of two dead girls. Happily, they have a psychic father, who uses his gifts to track them down. But can he make it in time?

So Bad It's Good? It’s actually a sequel to Dark Harvest , but the title doesn’t want you to know that – because it’s just as bad as the first DH. A maize ingly bad.

The Barbaric Beast Of Boggy Creek, Part II (1985)

The Film: Was there actually a Barbaric Beast Of Boggy Creek Part I , then? The mind boggles. Here, a lecherous professor takes his class to the swamps in order to investigate the existence of a hairy, eight-foot monster.

So Bad It's Good?
So bad you’ll sympathise with the monster instead of the helpless and annoying victims.

Ator l'invincibile 2 (1984)

The Film: The peciliious Ator (Miles O'Keeffe) goes on a quest with his Asian sidekick to save his mentor from the evil clutches of bad man Zor.

So Bad It's Good? Hardly. Ator 2 is a convoluted mess that was rushed through production in order to capitalise on the release of Conan The Destroyer.

Keloglan Vs. The Black Prince (2006)

The Film: A Turkish comedy, this exotic effort revolves around the love triangle of Keloglan (Mehmet Ali Erbil), who fancies a bit of Princess Cankiz, except Cankiz has her eye on the Black Prince. D’oh!

So Bad It's Good? So bad it’s shocking it got made in this day and age. Just awful.

Going Overboard (1989)

The Film: Taking that title literally, this miserable excuse for a film goes overboard in its attempts to garner laughs from its discerning audience. Sadly, with a young Adam Sandler in the lead and Billy Zane in support, we’re just left floundering.

So Bad It's Good? One for Sandler purists only - and even they’ll probably turn off after 15 minutes.

Die Hard Dracula (1998)

The Film: What should be an amazing ‘80s throwback featuring Bruce Willis in a cape and fangs is actually a boring update of the Dracula legend, with Steven (Denny Sachen) stumbling upon Drac’s castle.

So Bad It's Good?
Daft accents get a giggle, while the flying coffin part is mouth-twitchingly amusing. But after that killer title, you can’t help be left feeling cold.

The Tony Blair Witch Project (2000)

The Film: Clearly just an excuse to use that terrible punsome title, this mock doc follows a group of politicians and critics who brave the wilds of West Virginia in search of the Tony Blair Witch. Ho-ho-hum…

So Bad It's Good? So bad we’ll forever refer to it as a ‘shockumentary’.

The Hottie & The Nottie (2008)

The Film: Infamously dreadful, not least because it ‘stars’ Paris Hilton as the eponymous hottie – even though she looks like an anorexic scarecrow.

So Bad It's Good? Its laboured messages about true beauty are patronising and obvious as hell, while Hilton does her best (worst?) baby girl voice. We need to lie down in a dark room.

Space Mutiny (1988)

The Film: So cash-strapped that it re-used effects shots from Battlestar Galactica, Mutiny is a threadbare sci-fi that follows a spacecraft’s security crew, who are plotting to sell the ship’s crew into slavery.

So Bad It's Good? One of the cheesiest movies to emerge out of the 1980s, Mutiny is all about tin-foil costumes and dreadful special effects – which give it an old school charm. If you can survive the bad acting, that is.

Zodiac Killer (2005)

The Film: Released a whole two years before David Fincher’s Zodiac , this hackneyed attempt to unravel the mysteries of the Zodiac Killer can’t hope to bring the same kind of style or substance to the story that Fincher did.

So Bad It's Good? Its production values are so low that you’ll struggle to get through the first few minutes. If you manage that, you’re a better human than we are.
