We’re sure you’ll disagree with some movies on this list, but deep inside you know you’re wrong. Here are 7 terrible movies that actually became cult classics.
1. Children of the Corn (1984)
Let’s start off with Stephen King and his corn-loving kids. Shot plot overview: kids go bonkers, kill all the adults to ensure the crops thrive. A young couple come across the wacky village, then the kids chase them, something about a corn demon, blah-blah-blah, the crops burn down, end of story… it was not, sadly. The best part about the entire movie was John Franklin’s superb performance, who was 25 at the moment, as Isaac – the child Prophet. And by superb I mean so-bad-it’s-hilarious.
2. The Room (2003)
Tommy Wiseau, who wrote, directed, and starred in his own movie The Room, is probably crazy enough to think he made something exceptional. Unfortunately, the real world doesn’t work like that. Nobody knows how this film got such a huge following, but it definitely doesn’t deserve it. Instead of suffering through the Room, just watch James Franco’s “The Disaster Artist”. It’s not that funny but at least it knows what it’s supposed to be.
3. Showgirls (1995)
The movie that ruined Elizabeth Berkley’s career, while giving boners to the every dude in the 90’s. It was supposed to make some statement about feminism, but instead backfired right into Paul Verhoeven’s face. I mean, what kind of a movie takes home 7 Razzie Awards in a single go? The answer is – a particularly bad one.
