23 Terrible Movies So Bad You Absolutely Have To Watch Them

  • 0

In his My Year of Flops, Nathan Rabin coined the term “shitty miracle” as a twist on the “so bad it’s good” movie mentality. For Rabin, though, this designation didn’t just mean that the film was enjoyable just because it was bad. These were films that were truly special, a hail mary of perfect badness. Rabin writes,

“In a shitty miracle, everything goes awry. It’s not a matter of one sorry element dragging the rest down; it’s every terrible component amplifying the awfulness of everything else. These shitty miracles represent the perfect storm of bad ideas and miscalculation. Everything must line up perfectly for a shitty miracle to occur.”

I’ve been revisiting this concept recently to reflect on some of the more memorably bad movies I’ve seen in recent memory, like The Green LanternGothika, Catwoman, Elizabethtown or The Wicker Man, a movie that needs to seen to be believed. In addition to these disasterpieces, here are 23 other movies that are a special kind of terrible, so bad you need to watch them. These are the best worst movies.

Note: Obvious spoilers ahead.

Poetry that will change you

This is for the women who are first to get naked, howl at the moon and jump into the sea. This is for the women who seek relentless joy; the ones who know how to laugh with their whole souls. The women who speak to strangers because they have no fear in their hearts. This is for the women who drink coffee at midnight and wine in the morning, and dare you to question it. This is for the women who throw down what they love, and don’t waste time following society’s pressures to exist behind a white picket fence. The women who create wildly, unbalanced, ferociously and in a blur at times. This — is for you.
