The world of poorly-made films is far-reaching and wide. Today, we take a look at criminally mind-numbing films from the ’80s that will leave you shocked. The list contains everything from surprisingly horrible sequels to terrible horror films that are almost comedic, thanks to their absurdity.
1. Weekend at Bernie’s (1989)
Featuring two entrepreneurs, this film showcases a time of climbing the corporate ladder through desperate measures. Unfortunately, the humor soon gets repetitive and old, making the viewers wish their misery would end quickly.
2. Jaws: The Revenge (1987)
For some odd reason, the fourth film was incompatible with the third. It seemed more of a sequel to the second film as opposed to the third, making it appear disconnected from the series. Couple that with bad writing and horrible effects, and you’ve got a rushed movie with too many loopholes.
3. King Kong Lives (1986)
It’s impossible to imagine a boring King Kong film, yet this sequel somehow managed to do it. The movie is so bad, it’s funny. In terms of quality, let’s just say that even the first movie had better effects than this one.
4. MAC and Me (1988)
It’s already a bad sign when a McDonald’s commercial is framed as a feature-length film. But hey, at least the power of McDonald’s hamburgers and Coca-Cola can save the day. It’s safe to say the movie was a disappointment, even for children.
5. Leonard Part 6 (1987)
This film is not even the sixth one in the series, yet the perplexing title exists. Coined as Cosby’s worst film, the story follows a spy trying to fight against evil vegetarians, with meat as the ultimate weapon.
6. The Garbage Pail Kids Movie (1987)
Based on the popular trading card series, there were high expectations for The Garbage Pail Kids Movie. Unfortunately, the horrible effects ended up turning the film into pure horror. The humor is so bland, even kids won’t find it funny.
7. Howling II: Your Sister Is a Werewolf (1985)
The sequel was so contrastingly horrible to the original that audiences thought it was a prank. Entirely at odds with the first film, this film was only a horror in terms of the mess it made.
8. Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (1989)
Directed by William Shatner, the film was so horrendous; it nearly destroyed the franchise. With its poor effects and horrible writing, the movie bagged the Razzie awards for Worst Picture, Director, and Actor.
9. Going Overboard (1989)
Adam Sandler’s worst film yet, audiences choose to forget this movie even exists. The story features Sandler playing a struggling comedian who suddenly has a breakthrough after understanding the sheer power of laughter. He stops terrorists by simply promising them a role in a movie.
10. Howard the Duck (1986)
When Marvel Comics was finally coming to the world of cinema, the last thing anyone expected was Howard the Duck. Worlds apart from the comics, the film was a disaster with inter-species obscenity. The actors struggled to make ends meet after working in this movie.
