5. Alone in the Dark (2005)
> Genre: Action, horror, sci-fi
> Directed by: Uwe Boll
> Starring: Christian Slater, Tara Reid, Stephen Dorff
The acting talents of Christian Slater and Stephen Dorff couldn’t save this Atari video game adaptation. Described on Rotten Tomatoes as “inept on almost every level,” the film may appeal to viewers who prefer to laugh at their movies than with them.
4. House of the Dead (2003)
> Genre: Action, adventure, horror
> Directed by: Uwe Boll
> Starring: Jonathan Cherry, Tyron Leitso, Clint Howard
Bad movie master Uwe Boll helmed “House of the Dead” — another ridiculous video game adaptation. One positive aspect of the film for viewers, according to Rotten Tomatoes’ Critics Consensus, is that it’s “loaded with unintentional laughs.”
3. Saving Christmas (2014)
> Genre: Comedy, family
> Directed by: Darren Doane
> Starring: Kirk Cameron, Darren Doane, Bridgette Cameron
“Saving Christmas” — also known as “Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas” — has been derided by critics as smug, preachy, and shabbily thrown together. Lacking the fun and warmth of many Christmas films, Cameron’s production was called “the worst holiday movie ever made,” by David Keyes of Cinemaphile.org.
2. Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2 (2004)
> Genre: Comedy, family, sci-fi
> Directed by: Bob Clark
> Starring: Jon Voight, Scott Baio, Vanessa Angel
Director Bob Clark’s “Baby Geniuses” won over 2% of critics on Rotten Tomatoes. Its sequel — “Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2” — was enjoyed by no critics. The final feature film directed by Clark — the filmmaker behind “A Christmas Story” and “Porky’s” — before his death in 2007 was both a critical failure and box office bomb, grossing worldwide less than half of its reported budget of $20 million.
1. Manos: The Hands of Fate (1966)
> Genre: Horror
> Directed by: Harold P. Warren
> Starring: Tom Neyman, John Reynolds, Diane Adelson
This 1960s horror flick about a family that stumbles upon a devil-worshiping, human hand-sacrificing cult is nearly hated by all, aside from a smattering of die-hard bad movie fans. It was re-released by Sinister Cinema in 2003 and has occasionally been screened at film festivals in more recent years.
