The 25 Worst Movies Ever
Posted by February 16, 2012on
At Long Last Love has been recognized as one of the worst achievements in Hollywood history and as possibly the worst movie-musical ever. Director Peter Bogdanovich even ended up sending a press release to newspapers around the nation apologizing for it after embarrassing amount of negative publicity.
Intended to be a tribute to Alfred Hitchcock’s Birds, Birdemic was labeled by the Village Voice as “one more in the pantheon of beloved trash-terpieces”. The film only cost $10,000 to produce and it was glaring obvious throughout.
Starring Halle Berry, the Catwoman script was re-written no less than 28 times by 28 different screen writers and the movie has gone down as one of the worst superhero films ever.
With one critic calling it “Quite possibly one of the worst movies of the past 435 years” Mac and Me was essentially one long shameless McDonalds commercial/ET rip-off with credits at the end. It even starred Ronald McDonald himself, although he did end up winning a Razzie Award for Worst New Star.
Produced and directed by an insurance salesman, this laughably bad “horror” film was riddled with countless flaws. From terrible camera angles to an awful story line, this movie has managed to gain a cult following especially after being featured on Mystery Science Theatre 3000.
Receiving a 1% rating on Rotten Tomatos, some people have noted that Alone in the Dark makes every other worst-movie-ever look pretty decent by comparison. It’s just never a good idea to make a movie based on a video game, especially a bad one.
Found near the top of almost every “worst movie” list in existence, Batman and Robin has become synonymous with bad movie making. According to the New Yorker “the only thing that lends the movie cohesion is the fact that everyone involved came up with their worst performances ever.”
We’re not sure who thought taking the fantasy warriors of the first film and turning them into space aliens for the second was a good idea, but on Rotten Tomatoes Highlander II has an epic rating of 0% and has even been described as “awesome in its level of badness”.
Based around the L. Ron Hubbard novel and starring John Travolta, the movie wasn’t only awful but it was also steeped in fraud and criticism. From its association with Scientology to financial fraud by its production company, Battlefield Earth took home the Worst Film of the Decade award at the 30th Golden Raspberries.
Considered by many to be the worst movie of all time, director Tommy Wiseau tried defending it by claiming the flaws were intentional. Although no one bought his rhetoric they did buy the movie and since 2003 The Room has garnered a cult following.
