We watch movies to escape reality and be entertained.

But not all of them leave us feeling uplifted like Rudy or terrified like Scream. Some films are just horrifically bad.


Of course, the greatness of a film is subjective.

When it comes to cinematic disasters, one film comes to mind – Showgirls.

The campy erotic drama film directed by Paul Verhoeven was panned by critics and was the recipient of seven 1995 Golden Raspberry Awards.

However, its entertainment value cannot be ignored. Because viewing even the most contemptible films like Showgirls can make for a thoroughly riotous evening with friends and plenty of booze.

That said, Redditor MathYou69 asked strangers on the internet:

What is the absolute worst movie you've ever seen?

The Shark Attack

"Five Headed Shark Attack."

"Astute viewers may notice that the shark only has four heads."

"But just suffer through the first 30 minutes and you'll see that with literally zero explanation the shark's tail just turns into another head."

Passance

Backwoods Zombies

"Redneck Zombies. Everyone told me it was bad. I knew it was going to be terrible, but the production quality was like two kids in the backyard with mom's video camera. I turned it off within ten minutes."

Qurdlo

An Assortment

"Are we talking like, legit have a budget movies? Or filmed in the la river so they can avoid needing permits movies?"

"Roller Gator. I cant find the original, only the rifftrax version, which is streaming on prime, but geez is it bad. It's fun though. Has Joe Estevez. Did you even know there was a Joe Estevez?"

"Fun In Balloon Land. I still cant believe this exists."

"The wonderful land of oz. No way to explain it other than part time porn director in the 1960s puts his kid in a movie. It's flippin creepy too."

The Worst Sequel

"Jeepers Creepers 3 gave me a whole new appreciation for Jeepers Creepers 2."

"Jaws 4" – A Synopsis

"Jaw 4: The Revenge."

"You ever watch a movie so bad that it just slaps you in the every minute, and you won't turn it off because you think it's bound to get better?"

"Like, even if you didn't have a brain, just a spinal cord and a bucket of popcorn, you'd be going 'Whoa whoa whoa, I'm not a brain or anything but this, is a stupid movie.'"

"Let me tell you how it goes..."

"The woman in the movie has 3 people eaten by a shark in the same week. Out of an entire ocean of perfectly edible people, the shark only eats people in her family. So she slyly concludes 'The shark is obviously after my family.'"

"And the woman comes up with a plan, she says 'We're leaving town.'"

"And you're sitting there munching popcorn thinking 'Leaving town? Isn't that a pretty severe diversionary maneuver to avoid a fish? Why not just not go into the water? Wouldn't an apartment building protect you from the average shark? Because it's unlikely by the time that the shark gets out of the water, rents a taxi, climbs the stairs, gets to the door you'll likely sniff sniff smell fish and take the fire exit.' But no, the mother is leaving town."

"So where does she go, anybody know?"

"That's right, the Bahamas, other people with no actual lives at 2am."

"You're thinking 'The Bahamas? If the mother's afraid of a shark, why not just move to Canada?' Because it's unlikely you'll be on a dogsled and hear buudum... buudum... bom ba da de bom ba da de bom ba daaaa bom ba daaa."

"But no, she's moving to the Bahamas, an excellent place to avoid a fish, who would expect on in, ohhh.... the middle of the ocean."

"So when the woman is at the airport, the shark is there, watching her take off, and when the jet lands in the Bahamas, the shark IS ALREADY THERE. A remarkable achievement. No only has he uncovered their travel plans, but he has outrun a jet airliner."

"And that's when your spinal cord starts throwing popcorn at the screen going 'COME ON! I'm not a brain but that's a shark. Wouldn't an airplane be faster than a shark?' and the movie goes ''Well slap ordinarily yes but slap this is a stupid movie slap and in this movie slap fish is the fastest form of transportation *slap."

"Next time you have to go London to New York, rip up the concord tickets, hop a flounder."

This One Sucked

"Dracula 3000. I saw it years ago and it still haunts me. I powered through but couldn't take much more when I got to the scene where Coolio crawls on all fours through dry ice smoke, hissing, in almost utter silence."

Murderous Turkey

"Thankskilling."

"It's about a killer turkey and has a budget of roughly $30."

"My roommate and I tried shutting it off multiple times but just couldn't cause it was so oddly entertaining."

"Here's the trailer to this gem:"

Fam. Weighted blankets.

If you (or your kids - I see you, exhausted parents) struggle to stay asleep at night, weighted blankets might be a game changer for you. We got one for our 1-year-old after a week of her waking up at 4AM for baby jam sessions.

Best $31.99 we have ever spent. Ever.

As kids, we spent about 8 hours every day in school for 10 months of each year. Not surprisingly, a few useless lessons made their way into the curriculum.

Well, maybe more than a few.

Kids say some seriously whacky stuff sometimes, it can be disturbing, especially when they tend to discuss people who are not there. When the imagination is heading into "The Sixth Sense" territory, it may be time for a visit to the therapist. Now almost all of us had imaginary friends at one point in life. It is a very normal, common part of childhood. But much like the real friends in corporeal form we make in life, sometimes certain relationships are toxic and not a good influence. And separation is called for.

Redditor u/xX_ENTROPY_Xx wanted to hear about people's children's besties that they haven't laid eyes on by asking..... What's the scariest story you heard a child tell about their "imaginary friend"?

Be careful what you wish for, you just may get it. That is one of the wisdoms of life that people are always throwing around. It can be especially true when meeting your idols, finding your dream job and searching down blood relatives you knew nothing about. The DNA discovery craze has been all the rage the past decade or so. Everyone is running around contacting family they never knew they had. That can be quite the Pandora's box of family secrets and scandal.The outcomes have been all over the place. Though one of the best led to the discovery of the Golden State killer so that's a win.

Redditor u/VideoFork wanted to know who would be willing to give up some salacious tea about their blood tie discoveries by asking..... People who have taken an ancestry DNA test and accidentally uncovered a family secret, what was it?
