5. The Wicker Man – Nicolas Cage is an interesting actor. He has given truly awe-inspiring performances, but has also managed to give some of the most outrageous and over-the-top portrayals of his characters. “The Wicker Man “features the latter. The weirdly incoherent plot and Nic Cage temper tantrums results in an incredibly enjoyable piece of garbage.


4. Jaws: The Revenge – It’s sad to see an absolute classic like the original “Jaws” to be followed by so many awful sequels, but this one can’t help but to be wildly entertaining. Starring one of the worst animatronic animals ever and Michael Caine (yeah, for real). “Jaws: The Revenge” is a treasure of narrative stupidity and awfulness.

3. The Happening – In 2008, M. Night Shyamalan released his newest bowel-movement of a movie: “The Happening.” The inclusion of an absolutely incoherent plot about killer-plants complete with Mark Wahlberg’s comedically wide-eyed performance makes for an absolute joy ride that consistently gets worse and worse with each passing second.


2. Samurai Cop – This one actually isn’t very well known. Being a direct-to-DVD atrocity released in 1991, “Samurai Cop” has gained somewhat of a cult following in the community of “so bad that they’re good” films. With the crazy range from awfully comedic monologues to a truly spectacular scene with a random nurse, “Samurai Cop” is one of the best catastrophes ever created by a film studio and should not be missed.

1. The Room – This was to be expected. Tommy Wiseau shows his truly awful directing, writing, producing and acting in what is without a doubt the best bad movie ever: “The Room”. Whether it’s the lack of any emotion of complete overacting in every actor’s performance, “The Room” is one of the most engrossing pieces of entertainment for all the wrong reasons. If you’re looking for a complete dumpster-fire of a movie that never manages to disappoint in its awfulness, check out “The Room”.
