    The podcast WE HATE MOVIES is currently doing a summer series about the Michael Bay Transformers movies, and it's the best work they have done. They are spot on with how awful these movies are, and I am laughing laughing laughing.

    Also, the second Transformers movie is possibly the worst movie I have ever seen in the cinema. I had blocked it out until their episode about it.

    Just my opinion, but I think Eraserhead is one of the great movies, it is very weird, but has its own internal logic, and the "eraserhead" sequence up to the point where he wakes back up, is one of the scariest ever imho.
    I do realize that Eraserhead is very decisive, some love it and some hate it.
    Linch constantly frustrates your expectations, intentionally, especially in the timing of shots, and it gives Eraserhead a very weird feel, but it works.
    One of the few movies where you enter a totally different world, not particularly one that you would want to stay in though.
    The soundtrack is near perfect..
    He didn't make the film to make you feel comfortable...

    I've seen so many incredibly horrible films I wouldn't know where to even start. Especially because each one that seemed the worst film ever, I would do my very best to try and never think of it again.

    I really, really love this film. Just got the blu-ray and am very happy with it :)

  5. Not including the many MST3K movies I've seen, I'd go with Prelude to a Kiss

    The only thing keeping Kiss's "Kiss meets the Phantom of the Park" from this distinction is how hilarious it is in it's putridness.

    I recently watched Very Bad Things with Jeremy Piven and Cameron Diaz. It was awful. No wonder I’d never heard of it even though it’s been around since 1998. Christian Slater is in it too, basically reprising his role as the persuasive psychopath from Heathers. The movie should have been called Very Dumb Men.

    I once characterized this film as Very Sick Things. I was particularly disturbed by the nasty, anti-female sexism. I almost laughed when they're sorting out the body parts for proper burials but after what came before I couldn't.

    I have it in for Battlefield Earth because for a movie that had huge expenditures for it's making, it still came out terrible. I suspect the Transformer movies should qualify for due consideration for the same reason. I, however, have yet to watch any of 'em all the way through.

    I saw that in the theatre when it came out. Now I hate you for reminding me of its existence.

    Monster a Go-Go is easily the worst I've seen. There's not one good thing I can say about it, and no, I haven't watched the MST3K version yet.

    As far as big budget films with big stars go you really can’t beat Battlefield Earth. If’s astonishingly bad given the amount of budget, resources, etc. that went int making the film.

    I would also say Requiem for a Dream but to be fair is wasn’t really a bad movie I just personally hated it.

    But as far as real worst movie goes I’d have to say Night of Horror (1981). It’s bad even by bad low budget independent horror film standards. Everything about from the sound, the acting, the lighting, to the dialog, story, pacing, etc. are all unbelievably inept and terrible. It feels more like a homemade film that a few bad film students made over a weekend. It’s amazing it ever got distributed on any level.

    It’s actually worth watching just to see how bad a movie really can be.

    Freejack wasn't so bad. More ridiculous than bad but for me it was still entertaining.
