The current list is here: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls042839302/
(It starts empty)
Please provide what you believe to be the worst movie you have ever seen, and I will add it to the list, subject to the following submission guidelines:
1. The title must be a film
2. The title must not be a short (requires 45+ minutes runtime)
3. Please provide a reason for why you believe it deserves a nomination
4. Nominations can be independent of overall IMDB ratings - just because a movie is rated low or high overall does not mean you cannot nominate it.
5. Please limit your nominations to a maximum of 3 titles.
Once I've allowed sufficient time for people to make their suggestions I'll create a further poll (i.e. Round 2) whereby you'll be asked to vote from the list to narrow it down. After that, depending on the amount of titles, additional rounds (and corresponding lists) may be added until we can pinpoint the ultimate worst movie ever made.
Have fun :D
And if in the future you'd like a word to link to something (as in, "you can click here"), you can do it like this:
I'll have to think more about the question before answering.
Thank for your poll suggestion and thank you for having a properly functioning discussion link in your list.

I would like to nominate two films:
Leonard Part 6 (1987)
The commercial for this film were truly annoying. When I watch the film on TV, the commercials provided welcome relief to an unfunny and cloying film.
A nauseating take on incoherence.

Julie and Jack (2003)
The Pumaman (1980)
Monster Dog (1984)
Masters of the Universe (1987)

Well, you're probably withered from too much bad-movie exposure now, so I'll let you go! Hope this list helps!
I really do not come across many movies that I dislike to the point of considering them as such, because I am very cautious when choosing haha.
Fifty Shades Darker (2017). This movie is disgusting. I wish it was for the sex scenes, but they are rather prudish. There is neither any daring display of sexuality nor a hint of eroticism. No, what I find despicable about the movie is exemplified in the scene where the main characters go to a fancy restaurant and giggle at a nervous waiter - and except for one brief moment from afar we only ever see his torso, as in a Warner Bros. cartoon. The Fifty Shades movies fetishize a world of money, luxury and power in the hollowest way and bear a contempt for anything and anyone that does not fit into it.
- the so-bad-they're-good
- the so-bad-they're-bad
And we can say that the latter films are worse than the former... a film like Plan 9 From Outer Space doesn't have any pretension to be a masterpiece and it's a B-movie providing what people accept from B-movies and it is still more forgivable than a film that takes itself seriously and still does something as despicable as manipulating an audience or insulting its intelligence.
I guess the poll is about the movies we can truly say "I hate its guts", so maybe you should be careful not to mix them with the same old movies who are always nominated among the worst but that we, movie lovers, enjoy a little for their campy value and because they're entertaining in a laughable way.
My nominee is The Weird World of LSD (1967)
Not only is a film with the lowest imaginable production values, with no one that has the right to be called an actor or even something remotely similar to a plot. It is also an offensive film that tries to keep people away from LSD, but does this with lies, missinformation and fear which is pretty much the worst way to tackle a problem.

Worst Movie at the Top of the list ? ?
Keep in mind, ALL of the worst movies are birthed from the Swamp of Sadness (via the Neverending Story). So, at a quantum mechanics level? It's impossible to generate a list of only three of the worst movies of all time. So? I decided to take the lazy meandering route and randomly spit out some cancerously bad films not already listed.
1. To Catch a Yeti (TV Movie 1995): Meat Loaf. That should be enough to qualify this entry. The Yeti in question is a furbyesque 2 foot tall puppet. Just terrible acting, script, and production design.
2. A Talking Cat!?! (2013) Pretentious and (de)moralizing.
3. Santa and the Ice Cream Bunny (1972): A Christmas movie for kids on a diet of acid and black tar heroin. Santa gets his bloody sled stuck in a sand of a beach. A wanky Easteresque rabbit and hippy kids are there to save the day.
Dishonorable mentions to...
Fun in Balloon Land
Personally, I have to disqualify any Neil Breen film as I've only seen clips and reviews. He is this century's Ed Wood. But with so sooo sooo sooo much more painful pretentiousness. Someone has to have nominated at least Fateful Findings.
Also I'd like a small amount of feedback - I'm thinking of allowing everyone to nominate 2 more films (making 5 total per person) - do people want this ability? Or would you rather we stick to the 3/person?
I wasn't sure how much of a response we'd get for this list so I set it to 3 per person originally, just in case the list was overwhelming, currently we have 25 titles, which is still manageable, so I'm open to the idea of allowing a couple more movies from each of you. Let me know what you think.
Have an IMDBrilliant day!
Here's what you need to know:
If you haven't submitted a nomination: This is your last chance. Although this poll extends to subsequent rounds after this round closes no further nominations will be accepted.
If you've already nominated at least one title: Remember I've extended the amount of allowed nominations per user from 3 to 5, so if there is still a couple of titles you have up your sleeve now is the time to post those.
What to expect next: Round 2 will allow anyone, whether they have nominated or not to cast votes on titles already in the list. More details will follow when the round opens, but for now all you need to know is the purpose of round 2 is to narrow the list down.
Thank you to all those who have participated in this discussion.
Firstly, Son of the Mask 2 (2005) - talk about taking a decent comedic franchise and turning it upside down, my word - from the bad acting to the extremely inappropriate jokes for its target audience this title was more than a let down, it was agony.
And secondly, The Human Centipede III (Final Sequence) (2015) - the first Human Centipede movie had the value of shock on its side, and whilst decidedly disgusting at least had some arguably scare-laden horror elements. The second movie dragged the franchise down, trying to out do its predecessor, and failed miserably. The 3rd and final entry in the franchise dragged things down even further - this time, beyond the gutter and into the depths of hell. Whilst clearly trying to squeeze every penny out of what had become a cult cash-cow by now its audience was already expecting shock value and instead just got plain shock, with no value at all. Just plain grotesque. Ick!
