About This Quiz

There have been some pretty bad movies made over the years, and more than one has managed to leave a lasting sour taste in our mouths. So let's put that knowledge to use - can you name each of these horrible movies from just one screenshot? Find out!

"Plan 9 from Outer Space" is the "worst movie ever made," mentioned in the book, "The Golden Turkey Awards." Wood and his film were actually given two Golden Turkey Awards, for Worst Director Ever and Worst Film.

The movie where the Earth's number one agent, Barbarella, battles evil sundaes or can be captured by two eight-year-old girls is something you want to avoid at all costs.

In Marvel Comics’ original book, an orange-billed alien from a planet of ducks who talks, wears flashy jackets, enjoys rock 'n' roll music and flirts with girls looked really cute and funny. But the man who previously created Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader drained all the likability out of Howie’s comic book while making his weird movie about a creepy plush duck.

An embarrassing movie where Richard Pryor is skiing around for comic effect and Superman is fighting a cyborg named Vera. As the journalists described it, "Superman IV: The Quest for Peace" is "cheaper than a sale at Kmart."

It looks like the director of "Troll 2," Claudio Fragasso, did his best to fail at this movie. Despite the fact that he was working with largely inexperienced actors, he also employed a nearly all-Italian crew, meaning that the cast couldn’t understand his directions, nor take part in on-set discussions. As a result, we can enjoy this "masterpiece" and laugh uncontrollably.

"Mac and Me" is a movie that requires a couple of shot glasses, some liquor and a bunch of thirsty friends. Then, everyone must take a shot when the film displays one of its countless product placements or steals plot twists from Steven Spielberg’s "E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial."

"Highlander 2: The Quickening" is a sequel to the cult film "Highlander," which transforms the fantasy franchise into science fiction and make the mystical warriors from the first film into weird aliens. The sequel was met with harsh criticism by both critics and audiences. Later, its director and main character also admitted that they don't like this movie. We wonder if there is at least one person out there who really enjoyed watching this quirky fantasy film?

Try not to chuckle uncontrollably while watching this theatrically released “adult” film. Even though it's full of hot scenes and nude dancers, this movie is something that you would expect to see on a 18+ website, not on a big screen.

"Battlefield Earth" is based on the first half of the L. Ron Hubbard book. A sequel covering the second half of the book was also planned, but the critical panning, bad reviews and poor box-office performance killed off such plans.

The movie "Glitter" was intended to be Mariah Carey's breakthrough role, but it was a big failure and one of the worst music-themed films ever made, according to many critics.

This movie starred Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck, with appearances by Al Pacino and Christopher Walken. Originally, "Gigli" was just a black comedy. However, the script was changed multiple times in order to include the Lopez-Affleck romance that was big news in celebrity-watching publications at that time.

The movie "From Justin to Kelly" was so bad that it quickly became an all-time embarrassment and a cult classic. Grossing $4.9 million against a $12 million budget, this movie is an exceptional failure in a world where major studios can make around $50 million on their biggest flops.

it's hard not to feel sorry for Halle Berry, who is playing Catwoman in this sad, embarrassing movie. Let's just blame it on her agent.

The director of this picture, James Nguyen, calls himself the “master of romantic terror” and admits his love for Alfred Hitchcock. He obliviously tried to copy the style of his iconic horror movies - here is the result, which we highly urge you not to watch.

Even though "Disaster Movie" is a parody film, it's still not funny, or clever, or even worth your attention. Friedberg and Seltzer created a weird parody that doesn't even look like a film, not to mention that this movie is full of stupid humor, offensive jokes, racial stereotypes and stale pop culture gags.

"Reefer Madness" is a classic movie that has a vague understanding of narcotics. This title is usually the earliest entry in every list of famously bad movies. It feels like this black-and-white movie was made by lunatics  — how else do you explain the fact that  the characters smoke a little bit of marijuana and then start to kill each other?

The creators of this movie were so lazy that they didn't even change the title they borrowed from the Nickelodeon animated series. Despite its reported $150 million budget, this movie is famous for its bad acting, numerous plot holes, screenplay and poor special effects.

Jack and Jill received some of the worst reviews ever upon its release. The irony is that this movie stars some pretty good actors, including Al Pacino, best known for playing Michael Corleone in "The Godfather," which is considered to be one of the best films ever made.

"Fateful Finding" is a movie that deserves cult status. After a car accident, a writer finds he has magical powers and stumbles upon a vast government conspiracy that is never really explained in this astonishingly terrible film.

It's hard to explain why Hugh Jackman, Kate Winslet, Emma Stone, Richard Gere, Uma Thurman, Chloë Grace Moretz, Gerard Butler, Halle Berry, Stephen Merchant, Julianne Moore and others decided to become a part of this parody. I guess they were busy when "Movie 42" was on the drawing board.

One of the most unwatchable and stupid films made over the past few years, "United Passions" was released at the same time when everybody was talking about the 2015 FIFA corruption case - a fact that only made things worse.

"That's My Boy," another crude and unfunny comedy film starring Adam Sandler, is probably the worst movie of 2012. The story is focused on a middle-school student named Donny Berger who gets his teacher pregnant and becomes kind of a celebrity in his school.

"Humshakals" is a Bollywood comedy film that has neither story nor comedy to offer. This movie received 5 Golden Kela Award nominations, won for Worst Film, and got 2 Ghanta Awards - one for Worst Picture and another one for Worst Actor, which was shared between the 3 main actors.

Advertised as “the laugh-out-loud film of the year” and released on Valentine’s Day 2012, this film was a huge disappointment. Even though the 1983 show, "Run for Your Wife," that inspired the film was funny and original back then, this ridiculous movie looks like the ultimate big-screen flop.

A movie with a 4% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, "The Hottie and the Nottie" is a story about friendship and, of course, sex. Paris Hilton plays a "hottie," a girl who has sworn not to have sex again until her weird, hairy, snaggle-toothed best friend (who’s obviously, a "nottie") gets laid. Intriguing? No. Interesting? No. Worth your attention? No. No. No.

"Baby Geniuses" is a horrible movie that was surprisingly profitable enough for a sequel, "SuperBabies: Baby Geniuses 2." Supposedly it's a comedy for children, but show this movie to any adult and he or she will have no idea what just happened.

The movie full of references to masturbation, oral sex, porn, and - duh! - sex, this British masterpiece received strongly hostile reviews from critics. But, as the writer and director of the film Andy Humphries explains, portraying the modern men as horny, stupid imbeciles was actually exactly what he wanted to do. As he says, " I took the stupidity of men and made a stupid cartoon film vision of it."

This is one of the worst LGBT movies ever made, about a fanatic guy who plots to murder his gay brother and his hunky new husband. This low-budget movie was written, directed, produced, edited and scored by Sam Mraovich, who also played the main character, Arthur.

Not really bad, but incredibly boring, "Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever" has no value whatsoever. Sadly, this movie is not even unintentionally funny like many bad movies.

Produced in part by Adam Sandler, "The Master of Disguise" focuses on a guy with a "funny" name, Pistachio Disguisey, who comes from a long line of masters of disguise and wants to follow in his parents' footsteps. The actor who played the main character, Dana Carvey, obviously thinks that he is goofy and super funny, but he is so wrong.

One of the worst works of Tom Green, "Freddie Got Fingered" is absolutely painful to watch. But if you're brave enough for this torture, be prepared for gross-out and shock humor as well as silly jokes, similar to those from "The Tom Green Show."

"Honest" marks the directorial debut of David A. Stewart. This tale of '60s London got a lot of negative reviews upon its release and was listed by British film historian I.Q. Hunter as one of the best candidates for the title of "Worst British film ever made." Honestly.

The last and probably the worst film directed by Michael Winner, "Parting Shots" was accused a lot of being poorly acted, filmed and scripted. Offensive even by Winner standards, this movie about a rock musician who begins murdering people is among the best examples of irresponsible film-making.

Uwe Boll, the director of this film, makes every mistake possible while filming "Alone in the Dark" - from accepting an awful script, to casting horrible actors in bad roles, down to the editing of the picture, that could make all the difference if done properly. It's loosely based on a series of video games.

A poorly made spy film adaptation of the 1960s British television series of the same name, the 1998 "Avengers" starred Ralph Fiennes and Uma Thurman, with Sean Connery as their antagonist.

Inspired by Carl Hiaasen's satirical novel, "Striptease" is a boring and humorless movie that focuses only on Demi Moore, whose character decides to become a stripper in order to fund an appeal for custody of her daughter. This 1996 comedy-drama film was accused of being a vanity project for Moore and called the worst movie ever made.

"Frozen Assets" was a complete bomb, only grossing $376,008. It was also called one of the dumbest comedies ever made and the worst film of the 1990s.

"Hobgoblins" is a blatant rip-off that looks just like the popular 1984 movie, "Gremlins." However, if "Gremlins" was fun and original back in the 1980s, "Hobgoblins" is well-known for the extreme misogyny and brutal treatment of women, the film's technical incompetence, boring, repetitive scenes, its moronic, very poorly conceived plot, stupid jokes, lack of plot twists, its dreadful acting and its ugly look.

"The Garbage Pail Kids Movie" is a late ‘80s film that advertised Garbage Pail Kids - cult classic trading cards made to parody the Cabbage Patch Kids dolls that were immensely popular at the time. This series of trading cards was infamous for its stupid, tasteless and unfunny interpretation of the Cabbage Patch Kids characters. The movie is just like these cards, but much worse.

"Tarzan, the Ape Man" was made by John Derek, one of the worst actors ever. The story focuses more on Jane (Bo Derek), who arrives in Africa to reunite with her tyrannical, abusive father (Richard Harris) and runs around topless or near topless for most of the movie. Then she goes missing and is rescued by ape man Tarzan (Miles O'Keefe), and of course these two fall in love with each other.

A movie widely popularized as the "official worst movie of all time"—it's also at the top of the the IMDb's list of 100 worst movies. "Manos: The Hands of Fate" is a low-budget horror film that appeared after Harold P. Warren bet Academy Award-winning screenwriter Stirling Silliphant that anyone could make a horror movie. Obviously, he was wrong.

A violent movie, "Heaven's Gate" was released twice. The original 219-minute version was so bad that the studio pulled the film after several days. Re-released five months later, "Heaven's Gate" became 70 minutes shorter and a little bit better, but it bombed again and is still remembered as one of the worst movies with a then-astronomical $36 million budget.

Probably Peter Bogdanovich's worst film, "At Long Last Love" is one of the least popular Hollywood musicals of the 1970s. The director was not only duplicating a 1930s musical, but he also added a lot of unnecessary details and made strange stylistic decisions that made his movie only worse.

"The Room" was made by an amateurish filmmaker, Tommy Wiseau. The funniest thing about this hilarious 2003 movie is how serious its director remains about it - every time he makes a public appearance, he tries to defend his work, which is absolutely unnecessary since this movie still has its fans. They just love it the way it is.

This disaster-horror film about a killer bee invasion of Texas was adapted from a book of the same name by Arthur Herzog. "The Swarm" lost a lot of money, taking less than half of its $21 million budget.

Everything began with the movie "Terror at Halfday" by Bill Rebane. When the production quickly ran out of money, Herschell Gordon Lewis purchased an unfinished movie and completed it, spending a minimal amount of money. Several of the film's actors couldn't return, so Lewis simply replaced their parts with new characters who didn't even look like those who left the project.
