As any movie watcher knows, there are good films and bad films. Under the “bad film” umbrella exists movies that are worse than bad – they’re terrible. Recently, movie lovers worldwide met in an online discussion to reveal their picks of the most awful movies ever. Avoid these films at all costs.

1. Gotti (2018)

Any film with a 0% rating on Rotten Tomatoes must be properly ridiculed. So stay away from this movie if you want to keep your sanity. “It’s filmed in a house that makes it feel like it was too small to be filmed,” says one movie buff. “Jumped from random scenes to other random scenes. It made no sense. Absolutely horrible.”

2. Sharknado (2013)

Sharknado was a made-for-television movie that combined horror, science fiction, and comedy elements. Resulting in one brutally unwatchable stain on modern filmmaking, it didn’t stop half a dozen sequels from being released in subsequent years. If you see this movie on TV, I advise you to watch any commercial instead.

3. Jeepers Creepers 3 (2017)

Four Jeepers Creepers movies have been released, and peculiarly, the third installment is near-universally decried as one of the worst films ever created. Countless movie buffs cite a laundry list of problems with Jeepers Creepers 3, from its inane plot, lame death scenes, and laughable acting. 

4. Zardoz (1974)

Not even Sean Connery could salvage this terrible film. One movie buff explains why. “It was directed by John Boorman, who had just made Deliverance which was nominated for three Academy Awards,” he recalls.

“So they gave him a free pass to make any movie he wanted, which resulted in Zardoz, one of the hilariously worst movies ever made. It was awful in every way. Don’t watch. I don’t even want to explain it any further.”

5. The Happening (2008)

As one of the unfortunate souls who saw this film in theaters, I must report that it has no redeeming qualities. From the “I’m just here to collect a paycheck” performance from Mark Wahlberg to the nonsensical plot twist (wait, the wind is the bad guy?), it’s a movie that will decrease your life expectancy just by watching it today. 

6. Down (2001)

Sometimes, a simple sentence is all anyone needs to avoid a particular film, and here is that simple sentence: The movie is about an elevator that starts killing people. So the less said about Down, the better. 

7. Pungo: A Witch’s Tale (2020)

Everyone knows the quality of films on Amazon Prime pales in comparison to the movies found on Netflix, and Pungo does nothing to turn the tide in Amazon’s direction.

“No score on Rotten Tomatoes, but it offers plenty of opportunities for you and your friends to crack jokes while watching,” advises one movie buff. “It’s included on Prime.” Remember, just because it’s available on Amazon Prime doesn’t mean you must watch it!

8. Meet the Hollowheads (1989)

You know a film is terrible when the actors involved in it want nothing to do with it. “This movie is so bad that Bobcat Golthwait had his name removed from the credits to avoid hurting his career,” says one woman. Also, with a name like that, I’m not surprised that Meet the Hollowheads was an unmitigated film disaster. 

9. Rubber (2010)

The plot of this horror comedy can be summed up in one sentence: A car tire becomes sentient and starts killing people. Does this sound like the thought-provoking storyline of an all-time great movie? Of course not. Like the majority of horror comedies, this film is objectively terrible.

10. The VelociPastor (2017)

Even though this film is considered one of the worst movies of all time, its premise is so ridiculous that now I have to watch it – and you should watch it too. It’s a horror comedy (of course) about a priest who turns into a dinosaur. If that’s not the worst plot for a movie ever pitched, I don’t know what is. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have some hate-watching to do. 

11. The Master of Disguise (2002)

Dana Carvey found success on Saturday Night Live and Wayne’s World, but he can’t make it work in his own vehicle. At least we have the Turtle Man memes from this, right?

12. Dungeons & Dragons (2000)

2023’s Dungeons & Dragons movie is a surprisingly good time with an all-star ensemble cast. 2000’s Dungeons & Dragons movie, however, is awful in every conceivable way. The film finds a way to waste Jeremy Irons; he looks bored throughout the entire film.
