8 “So Bad It’s Good” Movies That Leave You In Hysteric

Though no one believes they could enjoy watching a horrible movie, some dramas may be worth your time if you want to have a good laugh. Ironically, these films are so bad that they would be a good source of entertainment.

Let’s check out the list below to see if you have watched one of these disasters before!

#1 Mommie Dearest Will Make You Thankful For Your Own Mother

The biographical drama Mommy Dearest revolves around the young life of Christina Crawford, living under the abuse and control of her adoptive mother.

Though the movie with a mere $5 million budget gained a $35 million turnover, it was criticized for the performance of Faye Dunaway. Some scenes even made the movie become an “unintentional comedy”. The movie ended up with the second Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Picture.

#2 Jupiter Ascending Was More Of A Decine

2015’s Jupiter Ascending was directed by the Wachowski of The Matrix, so it was expected to be a hit. However, it failed as a space opera film, and the critic David Edelstein considered it “Inane from the first frame to last…it’s miraculously unmiraculous.”

The only factor attracting the audience is the participation of many stars, such as Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum, Eddie Redmayne, and Sean Bean.

#3 Staying Alive Was A Sad Excuse For A Sequel

While Saturday Night Fever became a hit, its sequel Staying Alive starring John Travolta in 1983 was a real disaster. This musical film is directed by Sylvester Stallone, and Travolta’s role is a professional dancer.

Rotten Tomatoes gave this film an astoundingly 0% rating, and some scenes went viral on the internet as memes and funny videos.

#4 Plan 9 From Outer Space Is A Total Whirlwind

Many independent producers hope to bring their names to the next height by making legendary films. Unfortunately, it’s not an easy task, and most of their work fails rather than succeeds. 

One example is Plan 9 from Outer Space, an independent science-fiction horror film by Ed Wood, released in 1959. The film is about the aliens’ attempt to stop humans from creating disastrous weapons.

The movie was played on TV from time to time. Nevertheless, its name only became popular after Harry Medved and Michael Medved called it one of the worst movies in history in their book The Golden Turkey Awards in the 1980s.

#5 Battlefield Earth Is So Comically Terrible The Sequel Was Never Made

Battlefield Earth is a science-fiction action film adapted from the 1982 novel of the same name. It is about a rebellion of humans to fight the alien Psychlos, who have controlled Earth for 1,000 years.

After being released, the movie dropped from one with high expectations to one of the most terrible disasters of all time. It was a shame when Battlefield Earth was roasted in almost every aspect.

#6 Excalibur Takes Drama To The Next Level

Excalibur is a 1981 medieval epic film transferring the legends of King Arthur and the Round Table to the screen. The movie title is named after the sword the King pulled from the stone before creating the Arthurian legends.

The film’s gorgeous visuals couldn’t save it from flopping due to the awful characters and plot, with some hilarious overacting.

#7 Snakes Of A Plane Is Precisely What It Sounds Like

What is the film Snakes on a Plane about? It’s about snakes on a plane, literally. To eliminate a trial witness, myriad snakes are released on a plane, causing absolute chaos.

Directed by David R. Ellis and starring Samuel L. Jackson, the film became a viral sensation on the internet after coming out in 2006. However, it didn’t last long in the audience’s mind with such absurd content.

#8 “Not The Bees! Not The Bees!” – The Wicker Man

If Robin Hardy’s The Wicker Man in 1973 is an ironic film of the horror genre, the remake in 2006 failed shockingly hard.

People often remake a famous film with the hope of surpassing the old version, but it’s not the case with The Wicker Man. The whole movie only impressed the audience with Nicholas Cage’s overacting during the scene when the bees covered his head in a cage. Even the actor considered the film “absurd” after receiving numerous negative reviews.

In conclusion, even the worst films of all time turn out to have some unique values. Let’s give these movies a try, and don’t forget to leave your thoughts in the comment section below!
