I mentioned in my Roundup Friday Post that my friends were holding their Annual ShatFest Movie Festival. Shatfest is named in honor of William Shatner, one of our favorite actors because of Star Trek and many many other movies and tv shows. It started out with them watching all the bad movies that William Shatner was in (the first year) and then turned into ‘bring the worst movie you can with c level or above actors.’

This year’s first movie was Hercules (1983) with BAD special effects. There were better special effects on the first Star Trek series from the 1960s. The greek gods were all blonde with dark eyebrows, instead of, you know, greek. The main actor was awful. He was very wooden with his acting. However, it wasn’t too bad against the other movies. And I can appreciate the interesting costuming, at least.
The second movie I need brain bleach to remove from my head. It was called Thanks Killing (2009). It’s freakin’ awful. The kids in the movie were stupid. Like _reaaaaaaaaaaaaaally_ stupid. And sadly, I saw so many things coming that I begged them to turn off the movie. This one was really trying to be bad, I think it just failed at being bad, too.
The third movie was an awful art film called Rubber (2010) I really hate movies like this, especially when they keep saying ‘there’s no point!’ Also, a tire? Really? Sadly, every single guy at the event liked this movie. Ick.
The fourth movie was BloodRayne (2005). I’ll be honest. I love vampire movies. I really do. I didn’t think this was bad, BUT I was pretty sure that most people would think it was terrible. The dialogue is painful at points. It does have an interesting cast, with Kristanna Loken (Terminator 3), Matthew Davis (Vampire Diaries), Meat Loaf, Billy Zane and Michelle Rodriguez (Lost). No one voted to turn it off.
The final movie was Laserblast (1978). We didn’t stay to finish it, but what I saw was awful.
My vote for the worst movie of the lot was definitely Rubber, followed by ThanksKilling. Ug. There are some movies that should never be made.
What’s the worst movie you’ve ever seen? Was it intentionally trying to be bad?
