The Bad Taste List. Weird, wild, psychotronic cult classics, so-bad-they're-good, and... some of the worst movies EVER.

(Last updated: 6/11/2022)

Feeling like your Letterboxd ratings graph is not evenly-distributed enough? Look no further, friends. Some of these films could help boost those numbers on the lower end of the ratings scale... enjoy! On the opposite end of the scale are some genuinely weird and wonderful films - by David Lynch, John Waters, Ken Russell, Anna Biller, Peter Jackson and others... as well as bad films by great directors, including Steven Spielberg, Woody Allen and Ingmar Bergman, questionable Best Picture Oscar winners... but all interact with the hegemony of "taste" provocatively.

A friend asked why I would include genuinely great films like Night of the Living Dead, Eraserhead and The Devils in this list. The answer is simply…
