The 25 Worst Movies Ever

Posted by on February 16, 2012

This isn’t just a list of bad movies. This is a list of movies that have gone above and beyond what it would normally take to be classified as awful. These are the horror films that make you laugh and the actions flicks that make you cry. Chock full of painful camera angles, laughable scripts, and atrocious acting, most of  have won numerous Razzies and left a trail of destroyed careers in their wake. Like the black sheep of the family, however, we still love them and proudly present to you the 25 worst movies ever.

Speed 2 – Cruise Control (1997)

Although the original could be considered a near perfect action movie, the sequel almost seemed like it was deliberately created to flop. For starters, why would you have a movie called Speed take place on a cruise ship? Six knots is not very fast. As Anthony Lane said, “Where, pray, is the speed? I can bicycle faster than this ship. I know people who can swim faster. If things carry on like this, we can look forward to Speed 3 taking place on the back of a pony.”

Troll 2 (1990)

Not only was this movie terrible, it didn’t even have any trolls! Italian director Claudio Fragasso barely spoke any English when he wrote the script with his wife, and yet insisted that the actors deliver their lines word for word as written. To this day, however, he still defends the movie as a masterpiece and to his credit Troll 2 has developed a cult following.

North (1994)

Based on the novel North: The Tale of a 9-Year-Old Boy Who Becomes a Free Agent and Travels the World in Search of the Perfect Parents by Alan Zweibel, this film as been labeled as “one of the hardest movies to watch from start to finish” by critics and has been derided for its portrayal of various ethnic stereotypes.North has an 11% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Inchon (1982)

Meant to depict the battle of Inchon during the Korean War, this film failed miserably. Between the producer turning out to be a member of the Japanese Unification Church (the controversial organization headed by Sun Myung Moon), the U.S. military pulling its backing from the film (partially due to the Unification Church connection), and almost every other conceivable problem during production, the film was doomed from the get go.

The Giant Spider Invasion (1975)

There’s really not much more to know once you’ve seen the title – giant spiders come to Earth and kill people. One interesting piece of trivia: the final spider boss was actually a volkswagen covered in fur with people holding the legs out the windows. Some have said it’s worth watching just for that.
