Five films so bad they're good

There are good movies and then there are also bad movies. But nothing compares to these masterpieces of all things terrible. Here is our list of five films so bad they're good.

The Room (2003)

“Oh hai, Mark!”

Arguably the best worst film ever made, The Room is a truly extraordinary film that needs no introduction. Directed, written and even started in by Tommy Wiseau, it is a film that has captured the hearts of many for all the wrong reasons.

The films storycentres around Johnny who finds out his girlfriend is having an affair, and starts to slowly go insane. But how do we know he’s a nice guy I hear you ask? Well that would be because every five minutes, characters feel the need to remind you he is.

In short, the writing is awful as is the acting. The remarkable thing about The Room is the cult following that it has gained over the years. With the spoof directed by James Franco gracing our screens soon, it is well on its way to being a true film of legend.

Birdemic (2010)

Shock and Terror

Birdemic is a film that looks like it came straight from a film student’s class project. Truly abysmal CGI and even worse acting to boot. The story takes place in California where a flock on mutated birds have started to attack the citizens. Couple, Road and Natalie take it upon themselves to fight back against the evil birds.

The film is full to the brim with truly unconvincing scenes. Actors franticly wave their hands around attempting to look like they are in danger of death. I’m sure at one point I noticed one of the actors trying desperately not to laugh. It’s as if they knew how silly the whole thing was.

Despite the films poor rating Birdemic is a film you really have to see to believe.

The Wicker Man (2006)

“OH, NO! NOT THE BEES! NOT THE BEES!”

The Wicker Man is a remake of the 1973 film of the same name. The remake has become a cult classic for its truly awful dialogue and poor acting the results of which an otherwise serious film just comes of as hilariously awful.

Nicolas Cage the man, the myth, the legend takes on the role of California cop Edward Malus who travels to an island in search of his ex-fiancée’s missing daughter.

The film still entertains audiences today for all the wrong reasons. I would highly recommend this film if you’re looking for a good chuckle, but if you’re looking for a more serious film then watch the original.

Troll 2 (1990)

“They’re eating her, and then they’re gonna eat me. OH MY GOOOOOOOOOOODDD!”

Troll 2 a film so bad that it’s good. The plot centres around a family traveling to a farming community for a vacation. A young child discovers the farm infested with vegetarian goblins who transform humans into plants…in which they eat. (Yeh, I can’t quite believe it myself)

Without knowing this is a sequel you would be forgiven in thinking that it is stand alone as no actual trolls grace us with their presence throughout the entirety of the film. With ridiculous acting, embarrassing special effects and terrible writing makes this film the holy grail of bad movies.

The film is bad, but it is also fun and you will want to watch it over and over again. Definitely give this film a watch, you won’t regret it!

Disaster Movie (2008)

Your favourite movies are going to be destroyed.

The Disaster Movie is just that, a disaster. The plot revolves around four friends who attempt to flee man-made and natural disasters. The film features a multitude of characters and parodies ranging from Batman, Hannah Montana, Iron Man and even Indiana Jones.

The film is poorly written and poorly performed making Birdemic seem like a masterpiece. But if you’re looking for a good chuckle then make sure to give this film a watch. Even if it’s purely out of curiosity.
