Glen or Glenda (1953)
An autobiographical/documentary about transvestism, starring and directed by Ed Wood. Béla Lugosi appears in this film. Many of Wood's fans and critic Leonard Maltin insist that this was far worse than Plan 9 from Outer Space; Maltin considers it "possibly the worst movie ever made".
Robot Monster (1953)
This film is listed in Michael Sauter's book of 'The Worst Movies of All Time'. It is also featured in 'The Book of Lists' 10 worst movie list, in The Fifty Worst Films of All Time, and in the documentary The 50 Worst Movies Ever Made. But you have got to love the half gorilla - half deep-dea diving costume!
Plan 9 from Outer Space (1959)
This movie marked the final appearance of Béla Lugosi. Following Lugosi's death, the character was then played by Tom Mason, the chiropractor of Wood's wife at the time, who played his scenes holding the character's cape in front of his face. Wood was apparently undeterred by the numerous physical differences – such as height, build, hair! However don't watch this to see Lugosi's last work, it really isn't his best! Honest
The Beast of Yucca Flats (1961)
Shot silently then narration added afterwards. It features a seminude prologue completely unrelated to the rest of the film, and a scientist turning into a monster played by Tor Johnson. Leonard Maltin's TV and Movie Guide calls it "one of the worst films ever made". Bill Warren said "It may very well be the worst non-porno science fiction movie ever made."
The Adventures of Pluto Nash (2002)
Its Sci-fi, it has Eddie Murphy in it, what could go wrong! The movie cost $110 million to make and market, but earned just $7.1 million worldwide. A majority of critics lambasted the awful acting, terrible dialogue, and lack of humour. It was nominated for five Razzies: Worst Picture, Worst Actor, Worst Screenplay, Worst Screen Couple, and Worst Director. Murphy did not promote the film upon its release - I wonder why?
The film won seven of the thirteen Razzie Awards for which it was nominated. The film, however, has garnered a cult following over the years. The edited R-rated version removes much of the gratuitous nudity and replaces it with story elements which attempt to make the plot understandable. In a bold move, TBS broadcast the film on television in their prime time schedule, but added digitally animated solid black underwear to hide breasts and genitalia. It is now regularly broadcast by VH1 as part of their Movies That Rock series.
When Martian children see Santa Claus on TV, their parents decide to abduct Santa to make them happy. This could have worked, but doesn't. Cited on a 10-worst list in 'The Book of Lists', in 'The Fifty Worst Films of All Time', and in the documentary 'The 50 Worst Movies Ever Made'.
Manos: The Hands of Fate (1966)
This is a very low-budget horror film about a family on vacation that stumbles upon an isolated house inhabited by a polygamous cult. Among its most notorious flaws, besides poor production qualities, is an opening sequence with little dialogue in which the family drives through the countryside for several minutes looking for their hotel. Also, a teenage couple is seen making out for no apparent reason nor with any connection with the plot. John Reynolds, who played the character Torgo, wore a rigging for his legs that made his performance extremely awkward. The film gained cult popularity by being featured on Mystery Science Theater 3000. It has held the #1 spot on the IMDb Bottom 100 repeatedly.
Troll 2 (1990)
What's not scary about vegetarian goblins trying to trick a family into turning themselves into plants so the goblins can devour them. Despite the plot and the title, no trolls ever appear in or are mentioned in the movie, its just Goblins. Claudio Fragasso removed his name from the movie, instead using the pseudonym Drago Floyd. Despite the script being written in english written by Italians who spoke English only as a second language, Fragasso insisted the American actors deliver the lines as written. Terrible acting, confusing plot twists, terrible dialogue and unintentional innuendos have given this movie a cult following.
Jaws: The Revenge (1987)
The fourth film in the Jaws series sees the Great White given psychic abilities, it now being able to track and trace its prey from the Island to the Bahamas. Without the novelty of 3D or a decent script, it flops. Oh and did I mention this shark can roar at the end?!
Fat Slags (2004)
This isn't in any 'Worst of' books or lists yet, but give it time. According to the Internet Movie Database's polls, as of December 26 2008, this movie is in the bottom three of the worst rated movies. Taken from the pages of VIZ adult comic, this is a cartoon to real life transfer (not always a good thing)!
Not all movies are equal, some are so dire you'll spend the rest of your life wishing you hadn't wasted so much time and/or money. But how many of the worst have you seen, even half way through?
