Movies With The Worst Reviews On IMDb

Under the right conditions, watching a bad movie is often a lot of fun. On the other hand, a truly incompetent film can be downright painful. To save you the trouble of sitting through Hollywood's biggest duds, we've sifted through IMDb users' ratings to find their picks for the worst of the worst.

10. Disaster Movie (2008)

Being known as a duo who exclusively creates terrible films can't be easy, but according to critics, Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer keep on cranking out hot August roadkill. The 10th worst film of all time, as rated by IMDb users, is Disaster Movie, the pair's parody take on action movies, dance-off flicks and... Sex and the City? And Beowulf? IMDb user 'The_Amazing_Spy_Rises' blames the directors for pretty much everything wrong with the world, saying "Burn in hell. You are the cause of the downfall of western civilization." Did we mention that this guest stars Kim Kardashian?

9. Titanic: The Legend Goes On… (2000)

Attempting to leech from the success of the hit 1997 James Cameron film Titanic, director/writer/producer Camillo Teti assembled Italy's finest monsters to create the animated feature Titanic: The Legend Goes On. Rather than focusing on the romance of Jack and Rose, Teti forgets that the Titanic was a real ship on which 1500 people died. Instead, he populates the boat with talking animals, a jewel heist, and a rapping dog. Against all odds, IMDB user 'vornado11' has managed to find something in the spectacle: "It does everything so wrong, cares so little, and insults so much intelligence, that it's actually a fascinating movie."

8. Birdemic: Shock and Terror (2006)

A film so confused that its own title needs to tell you how you should feel, Birdemic: Shock and Terror is the work of infamous director James Nguyen—who calls himself a visionary in the film's trailer. Critics, both professional and amateur, were savage in their dismissals. IMDb user 'pledgerock' suspended disbelief for a moment, and found a silver lining: "Thank god for Whitney Moore in lingerie. The only believable thing about this movie was that she got a job at Victoria's Secret."

User 'innocuous' added a review that was anything but, stating, "The acting is uniformly terrible. Not bad. Terrible. Alan Bragh doesn't even rise to the level of fourth grade pageants." Take that, nine-year-olds!

7. Turks in Space (2006)

If you've been around the internet long enough, you've probably heard of Turkish Star Wars, (also known as The Man Who Saved the World), a film which makes extensive and illegal use of actual Star Wars footage to tell the story of a golden brain and magical jumping boots. Dünyayi Kurtaran Adam'in Oglu is the sequel to that unfortunate film, and if IMDb ratings are to be believed, it's even worse than the original.

6. National Lampoon's Pledge This! (2006)

Paris Hilton. That's pretty much all anyone needs to know about Pledge This!, a film about the perils of being ugly in college. Produced by none other than Paris Hilton Entertainment, the film ended up being so needlessly crass and having so much gratuitous nudity that Hilton herself bailed on the premiere, which landed her in court. Staging this protest might be the smartest thing Hilton has ever done, but the film itself absolutely tanked with IMDb reviewers.

An anonymous reviewer admitted that his body involuntarily committed violence against itself. "This movie made my brain try to jump down my throat and choke me just to save itself from the abject misery." Maybe it should have been shot in night vision?

5. Manos: The Hands of Fate (1966)

The only film on this list not from the 21st century, Manos: The Hands of Fate was popularized by Mystery Science Theater 3000 in 1997, and were it not for the mocking robots, it's possible that this film might never have been noteworthy enough to even get rated by IMDb. The film was literally made on a bet, and it shows. Manos was shot without any audio, and all sound effects and dialogue were added in post-production. The cameras used were fairly limited, so they could only film about a half-minute at a time before having to be reset. To top it off, one of the main actors committed suicide a month before the film was released.

The whole thing is a cult-worthy tragedy compounded by modern reviewers who continue to have their say regarding the questionable classic. 'Divaclv' seems to think that the threat of Manos should be insured against, and tells us that, "Manos is like a train wreck, or a natural disaster: I could describe it to you, but you'd never understand the full level of horror unless you witness it for yourself."

4. Daniel the Wizard (2004)

It's the German equivalent of From Justin to Kelly...so no, you're not safe from bad movies anywhere in the world. Written as a vehicle for the third runner-up of Germany's version of Pop Idol, Daniel Küblböck, Daniel der Zauberer is the story of how its titular protagonist discovers he's really a wizard. Granted, part of the film's plot is about two teenagers who hate Daniel so much that they try repeatedly to kill him, so at least we have a relatable villain. Küblböck himself came out against the film a few years after its release, but it was too late. 'Greendark2000' offers one of the best reviews: "I'm very sorry that [Daniel] managed not to be shot in the neck by his kidnappers. That would be a reason to watch this movie again." There's always time for a sequel.

3. Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2 (2004)

After the first Baby Geniuses film tripled its budget at the box office in spite of venomous reviews, the producers went back for more. Instead of using celebrities to voice sassy babies, Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2 relied on special effects, toddlers, and John Voight. No one could replicate the weird success of 1989's Look Who's Talking, and even as recently as 2015, the franchise has continued with Baby Geniuses and the Space Baby... still starring John Voight. Has anyone checked on him lately? 'Nadbruce' was able to get some good out of the film, though: "I was using it as an excuse to nap in air-conditioning. Alas, it was so bad that my daughter insisted we leave."

2. Saving Christmas (2014)

Saving Christmas is a Kirk Cameron production whose stated goal is to "put the Christ back in Christmas" by presenting what's basically a 79-minute conversation between Kirk and his imaginary brother-in-law about the nature of the holiday, often with historical inaccuracies favoring Cameron's argument. To top it off, the thing ends with an insane family dance number. The film may have gone unnoticed, except for the fact that Cameron tried to raise a holy army to give the film good ratings online...which totally backfired. Perhaps IMDb should be thanking the film for expanding website membership, however. 'Mike Summerlin' reports, "I created this account just to give this 1 star. That's how bad it was."

1. Code Name: K.O.Z. (2015)

It's not easy for those of us in the rest of the world to truly understand the contentious political state in Turkey, but The National spells it out a bit for us. And when a pro-government propaganda film forces other films out of the theater because cinema managers are too afraid not to show it, that's a recipe for some really bad blood. Masquerading as a political thriller, Code Name: K.O.Z. is very obviously the Turkish government's version of current political events, with a few names changed. Propaganda or not, enough Turkish citizens stormed IMDb to make this the most hated film of all time.

Reviewer 'kevin garnett' of Turkey has found a cosmic sinigficance in the films suckage, though. "Seriously, this thing is an insult to the art. It sucks so hard that it creates a black hole in the history of cinema." Maybe it can do us all a favor and suck all of these other films through, too.
