And the Sentence is . . . DEATH.

Okay, well, maybe not death, per se, but the time has come to find out what terrible movie I will be watching and reviewing before March 2013 for your sadistic pleasure. First, let me tell you what movie I won’t be watching. The only movie to receive no votes at all?


Although no one should infer that Troll 2 is the best movie on this list — one merciful person specifically chose something else to spare me the pain of having to see it. Still, most movies managed to at least get one nod, including Plan 9 From Outer Space, which I honestly expected to get more love (or hate, I suppose). Jaws: The Revenge racked up a respectable amount of votes, but when it came right down to it, the battle was really between two detestable films: Battlefield Earth and Showgirls.

So terrible scientology-driven science fiction versus offensive stripper melodrama. Hmmm . . .

The worst movie in all the world, the one that you people feel makes the best punishment (or the funniest potential review) is . . .


Terrible scientology-driven science fiction.

Le sigh.

  1. It has to be said, you did promise us “Battlefield Earth” a while back. Personally I was the one person who voted for “Howard The Duck”. Unlike “Battlefield Earth”, I’ve never seen “Howard The Duck” and I’m kind of intrigued. Will look forward to what you have to say about “Battlefield Earth” though. 😀

    • Actually, I didn’t promise to watch it, but I know what you’re talking about: when I was reviewing sci-fi movies, I was staring at a list of more important, very serious SF films, and I just wanted to pick apart a really bad one. So I did a poll on which people would rather read about: Battlefield Earth and Plan 9 From Outer Space, and if I succeeded watching all my SF movies, I would watch whichever movie won. It was actually supposed to be a reward, see. But by the end of the year, that moment of total insanity had passed, and I was very thankful that I hadn’t finished all my SF films. I figured that next time around, though, I would have to use the same poll (but with more nominees) as a punishment, the way it clearly should have been done in the first place.

  2. I was disappointed Showgirls didn’t win. I would have loved to read your review of that. I haven’t seen it since it came out, and man – I still get the occasional flashback or nightmare. Come to think of it, why would I want anyone else to suffer like that? Maybe it’s good Battlefield won! Or maybe not…I couldn’t make it even halfway through the book, and if the movie is as bad as I’ve heard…
