To find out which films were the worst and collectively criticized by film critics, Playtech turned to review platform Metacritic to compile this list of the worst reviewed films in history.
Metacritic is a website that collects reviews of movies, TV shows, music albums, video games and books. For each product, the scores in each review are averaged.
Here are the ten worst movies of all time, according to critics.
- “The Human Centipede III (Final Sequence)” (2015)
The Human Centipede III (Final Sequence) is a 2015 English-language sordid horror film written and directed by Tom Six. It is the conclusion of Six’s The Human Centipede trilogy. Starring Dieter Laser and Laurence R. Harvey, the lead actors from the first two films, in new roles, The Human Centipede 3 was released on May 22, 2015. The film has garnered many negative reviews.
“Fans of The Human Centipede might find enough “extreme body horror” in the third installment to satisfy their curiosity, but cinephiles of any other persuasion are advised to stay far, far away from Final Sequence,” critics say.
- “Vulgar” (2002)
Vulgar is a 2000 American black comedy thriller film written and directed by Bryan Johnson and produced by Monica Hampton for View Askew Productions. The film tells the story of the character Vulgar, a clown who appeared in the original View Askew Productions logo. Will Carlson is a 30-something loser who lives in a house in a rundown New Jersey neighborhood, where he makes a living as a clown at birthday parties to pay rent for his abusive mother’s nursing home, as well as his own rent.
“Too daring to be a drama and too violent and sordid to be a comedy,” say critics.
- “Strippers” (2000)
Strippers tells the story of Alan, who, in a disastrous economy after losing his job, dreams up a series of bizarre comedy scenarios – the worst-case scenario that could happen if the “strippers” get their hands on him.
“Amateurish, undramatic and lacking any sense of reality,” say critics.
- “Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party” (2016)
Director Dinesh D’Souza examines presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party.
“It doesn’t even qualify as effectively executed propaganda,” critics say.
- “The Singing Forest” (2003)
A widowed journalist (Jon Sherrin) realizes that his daughter’s (Erin Leigh Price) lover (Craig Pinkston) is a reincarnated mistress he was with in a past life.
“The Singing Forest was written and directed by Jorge Ameer, whose “Strippers” three years ago remained the worst movie I’ve ever seen – until now,” The New York Times.
- “The Garbage Pail Kids Movie” (1987)
The film is a 1987 American comedy film and adaptation of the then-popular children’s book series of the same name, produced, directed and co-written by Rod Amateau. It was the last film directed by Amateau before he retired in 1989 and died in 2003.
“An ugly, brutal, humorless film. It’s an awful film, but strangely worth at least one viewing for masochists,” critics say.
- “United Passions” (2015)
Jules Rimet (Gérard Depardieu), João Havelange (Sam Neill) and Sepp Blatter (Tim Roth) overcome obstacles to make the World Cup a reality.
“One of those films so endlessly frightening, you could write a better one while watching it in its 110 minutes,” say critics.
- “Bio-Dome” (1996)
Bud (Pauly Shore) and Doyle (Stephen Baldwin) are simultaneously dumped by their girlfriends, Monique (Joey Lauren Adams) and Jen (Teresa Hill), in the middle of the desert. In need of a bath, the two friends enter what they think is a shopping mall, but soon realize it’s a high-profile biological experiment.
“At one point, Pauly looks around the room and says, “Sometimes stupid can be pretty cool.” Not this time, Pauly,” the critics say.
- “Chaos” (2005)
As the name implies, the film is chaos. Two teenage girls on a mission to find drugs at a rave get more than they bargained for. One is sexually assaulted and both are tortured in horrific ways.
“Writer-director David DeFalco’s ugly, pointless and dishonest remake of Craven’s remake,” L.A. Weekly.
- “Death of a Nation” (2018)
Finally, the worst film of all time, according to Metacritic, is Death of a Nation. Through historical recreations and a close examination of fascism and white supremacy, director Dinesh D’Souza reveals history and hidden truths.
“D’Souza fans and Trump supporters will flock to see this film, moths to a treacherous flame. In that way, it’s a perfect representation of the current climate. Any other way, it’s a mess,” Arizona Republic.
