Two-time Oscar winner George Clooney plays a police officer in this 1987 horror comedy about a film crew being killed off as they try to make a movie about a series of murders. A year later, Clooney still hadn't learned his lesson, as he appeared in another horror comedy, Return of the Killer Tomatoes.
Based off of the video game, BloodRayne was directed by noted awful person, Uwe Boll. The movie sees distinguished actor Sir Ben Kingsley slumming it by playing Kagan, the apparent King of the Vampires. It's got a 4% on Rotten Tomatoes.
Jaws: The Revenge is the third sequel to Jaws and features a plot in which a new shark is somehow targeting the widow of Chief Brody. At one point in the film, a shark roars, which completely spits in the face of biology as we know it. Sir Michael Caine actually missed out on being able to attend the Oscars and receive his Academy Award for Hannah and Her Sisters in person because he was doing reshoots on Jaws: The Revenge.
Bob Hoskins is a racist cop who needs a heart transplant. Denzel Washington is a murdered lawyer whose heart is given to Hoskins. Denzel then haunts Hoskins in an attempt to have him solve his murder. This is somehow a comedy.
Faye Dunaway shares much of her screen time with a trained orangutan and gets splattered with a cake to the face. George Costanza and Pee Wee Herman also star. The 6% on Rotten Tomatoes speaks for itself.
BMX Bandits actually isn't as bad as a lot of the movies on this list. It's got decent reviews on Rotten Tomatoes and is a kid's film, so it shouldn't be judged too harshly. Still, it is an 80's cringe-worthy movie at its finest, complete with horrible costumes, gigantic hair, and forced pop music.
Everything about Catwoman is awful. The costume somehow manages to make Halle Berry unattractive, they completely tossed out the story of the Catwoman you know and love, and the villain's evil plan is to use make-up to take over the world. The director has since only directed one project: a Syfy original film.
You know your movie is bad when it's a sequel to a Jean Claude Van Damme film and they couldn't even get him to come back for it. The Oscars pull double duty on this one because it stars two winners, Jack Palance and Angelina Jolie. Despite being a sequel to the original Cyborg,Cyborg 2 is considered "unrelated." How that is possible is beyond us.
Come on, Al Pacino. What are you doing? They must have driven a literal dump truck full of money up to his house to get him to be in Jack and Jill. Being in the movie is bad enough, but Pacino actually performs a god awful musical number in the movie, too.
Christopher Walken allegedly has a unique policy when it comes to his film projects. It is reported that he never turns down a project that is offered to him so long as it doesn't conflict with with another project he has already committed to. We believe this, because it seems to be the only way to rationalize Walken's appearance in Disney's The Country Bears, a movie which features Walken performing the 1812 Overture via armpit farts.
Necromancy is a 1972 Rosemary's Baby rip-off set in a small town in California. It has never been released on DVD in the US, which should tell you something about its quality. It stars Orson Welles as the villain and was filmed during the time in which Welles was more known for making depressing commercials for frozen peas than he was for making Citizen Kane.
Madonna and Sean Penn were a huge power couple, and Shanghai Surprise is their Gigli. A terrible Indiana Jones rip-off, Shanghai Surprise actually goes so far in its quest to remind you of Dr. Jones that it features Paul Freeman, who played Indy's nemesis, Belloq, in Raiders of the Lost Ark. Penn and Madonna eventually got divorced and he then went on to win two Oscars. Coincidence?
Sandra Bullock plays a friendless, crazy woman who goes on a bad date with Bradley Cooper. Bradley manages to escape, but Sandra's character begins to stalk him, relentlessly pursuing him across the country as he travels for his job as a reporter. Sandra won the Razzie Award for Worst Actress for this film but won an Oscar the next day for The Blind Side, which I guess means she's back to square one.
Louis Gossett Jr. was on top of the world following his 1982 Oscar win for An Officer and a Gentleman. He basically had his pick of projects. But just like the aforementioned Michael Caine, he couldn't turn down any of that sweet, sweet shark money and agreed to be in Jaws 3-D, which sports an 11% on Rotten Tomatoes.
What's worse than being in a terrible Jaws sequel? Being in a terrible Jaws rip-off, of course. Three of the film industries greatest assets, John Huston, Shelley Winters, and Henry Fonda star in Tentacles, an Italian production in which a giant man-eating octopus menaces a coastal town because it is irritated by "radio waves."
More proof that the Golden Globes don't mean anything is that Meryl Streep managed to be nominated for one for this film, in which she somehow plays second fiddle to Roseanne Barr, of all people. Throw in a hapless Ed Begley Jr. and you've got a recipe for a completely forgettable movie.
The original Baby Geniuses somehow managed to make a profit despite having a 2% on Rotten Tomatoes and being described by Roger Ebert as one of his most hated movies. This is the kind of pedigree that apparently attracted Oscar winner Jon Voight to its sequel. Like father, like daughter, we guess.
The original "Rocky and Bullwinkle" cartoon is a brilliant, wonderful thing that should last forever. The 2000 movie is not. We can only assume that Robert De Niro was a die hard fan of the cartoon, as this is the only rationale that justifies his appearance in this piece of trash.
Forest Whitaker is in Battlefield Earth. There is nothing I can say about the film that hasn't been said already. I will just let Roger Ebert do the talking. Ebert described viewing the film as, "like taking a bus trip with someone who has needed a bath for a long time. It's not merely bad; it's unpleasant in a hostile way."
Oscar winner Gene Hackman plays a tough-as-nails cop who is partnered with Dan Aykroyd, a police detective with multiple personality disorder (who is somehow still on the force!). Together, they attempt to locate a lost tape of Adolf Hitler's escapades with a young German officer. Throughout the film, Aykroyd switches personalities, pretending to be Captain Kirk, Popeye, and the Road Runner, among others. It has a 0% on Rotten Tomatoes.
