Check Out These 25 Worst Rated Movies Of The Decade On IMDB Right Now

Many people would argue that anything controversial or divisive tends to get a score on IMDB that doesn’t really paint an accurate picture of the movie, or the fact that the IMDB ratings are just averages; it isn’t always the right argument. While audience ratings can be manipulated, they carry a value of their own. These ratings are tied to the actual movie experience the movie offered, rather than on technical aspects of the movie like its art. IMDB score, in a sense, gives you the exact picture of which movies the majority of the audience would want you to watch, and which ones the audience wants you to skip.

In that aspect, IMDB and its rating metric make it the most important one that drives your decision of which movie you would like to watch next. By getting rid of the critical sphere, unlike what Rotten Tomatoes or Metacritic have, IMDB gives you the direct feedback of people who actually watched the movie.

We can also look at it the other way around. On one hand, the score urges us to watch certain movies, but it also clearly informs us about the ones we shouldn’t even think of watching. For instance, if you come across a movie that is rated 5 or below on IMDB, you can be fairly certain that it is something you’d regret watching. Or, if you are someone who loves torturing themselves with the most terrible of all the movies, the IMDB scores would also help you find the absolute worst of the decade the movie industry had on offer for the audience.

There’s been apparently quite a pile of trash released since 2010, so let’s check it out!


The Legend of Hercules (2014)

IMDB Rating – 4.2

The Legend of Hercules was another take on this popular character, but it showcases quite clearly that displaying abs and pouring in tons of money isn’t going to make a movie work. The movie was very shoddily put together, and despite a good enough budget, even the CGI didn’t work.



Fifty Shades of Grey (2015)

IMDB Rating – 4.1

Fifty Shades of Grey, a movie based on the novel of the same name, had very lofty expectations, but it failed to deliver any of them. A completely unerotic and poorly written movie, the movie had decent enough acting, but that alone couldn’t cover the deficiencies the movie lacked in other aspects.



Escape Plan II (2018)

IMDB Rating – 3.8

Escape Plan II is so poor that even the star of the movie wanted to “escape” – literally! Sylvester Stallone admitted in an interview that the movie was quite terrible and it was visible even during its shooting when he even felt like leaving the project midway. The movie messed up a good concept, thanks to poor writing and equally poor direction.



Holmes and Watson (2018)

IMDB Rating – 3.8

What can one expect when John Riley and Will Ferrell team up to play Holmes and Watson on the big screen? Tons of laughter and a great movie like Step Brothers. However, the movie fell flat, thanks to terrible writing and there was not even one percent of the charm that we were expecting.



The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence) (2011)

IMDB Rating – 3.9

The Human Centipede 2 followed up on a notorious first installment of the movie by coming up with a terrible plotline and the story couldn’t live up to the quality one was expecting. The movie ended up a disaster, to say the least!



Piranha 3DD (2012)

IMDB Rating – 3.8

A movie that thinks of itself to know it all when it clearly knows nothing, Piranha 3DD was a cynical and manipulative movie that probably didn’t need to be made in the first place and throughout the duration of it, it never makes to even once suggest otherwise.



Fifty Shades of Black (2016)

IMDB Rating – 3.8

A movie that was supposed to be a parody of the erotic thriller Fifty Shades of Grey, it doesn’t even deserve the 3.8 stars it has on IMDB. This Wayans’ Brothers movie made quite a lot of money, but was definitely one of the worst movies one could ever come up with.



Bucky Larson: Born To Be A Star (2011)

IMDB Rating – 3.7

Another flick that failed terribly at parodying another movie, Bucky Larson: Born To Be A Star failed to evoke even single laughter. The movie was produced by Happy Madison, a production company owned by Adam Sandler. We wonder if his own terrible choices as an actor are rubbing off on his production choices as well!



Spy Kids 4-D: All The Time In The World (2011)

IMDB Rating – 3.7

We’d certainly accept the argument that the first three installments of the Spy Kids were actually quite good, but clearly not the fourth one. The science-defying plot points and a lack of creativity meant that the movie was destined to fail – and it did. The movie fails at making us laugh, and feels quite forced and charmless.



Scary Movie 5 (2013)

IMDB Rating – 3.6

We wonder how they made five of these! Yup, that’s the thought that comes to everyone’s mind when we talk of Scary Movie. With the same set of unfunny and silly tropes that they employed through the first four chapters of the movie, the fifth one had the same things – in a much worse manner, of course. The typical scattergun style of dealing with references, the movie was a disaster, to say the least.



The Open House (2018)

IMDB Rating – 3.6

An adaptation of a great mystery book, The Open House fails at using the positives of the original work and ends up being a bland, clueless story that never picks up. The movie also couldn’t live up to the horror tag of the original work and ended up wasting such good material – all thanks to poor direction and lack of good writing.



Slender Man (2018)

IMDB Rating – 3.5

A movie we all were expecting to come out and blow our minds, Slender Man was a huge disappointment, to say the least. The movie messed up the creepypasta source and ended up being a very flat, unscary flick that hardly had any horror in it.



Vampires Suck (2010)

IMDB Rating – 3.5

Aaron Seltzer and Jason Friedberg wouldn’t have missed out on a chance to make a spoof of a successful movie back in 2010 – and they did. Vampires Suck was meant to be a parody of Twilight, except that it wasn’t at all funny, and clearly was just made for the heck of it.



The Starving Games (2013)

IMDB Rating – 3.5

Another spoof made by the Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer duo; The Starving Games is a parody of The Hunger Games that was neither funny nor a clever spoof. It lacked the quality any good spoof should have and doesn’t even deserve the 3.5 rating.



The Emoji Movie (2017)

IMDB Rating – 3.4

The Emoji Movie is indeed the lowest point in Patrick Stewart’s career, as the movie clearly fails to make any sense. Nevertheless, The Emoji Movie gave us the perfect meta-reference by being so horrible and having an actual poop starring in it!



Jack And Jill (2011)

IMDB Rating – 3.4

The makers of Jack And Jill seriously thought that putting on some makeup on Adam Sandler’s face and asking him to wear a wig was all comedy was about. Seriously, the movie was horrible, to say the least and people wouldn’t be wrong if they turned up at the maker’s office and asked for a refund of the movie ticket!



Gunday (2014)

IMDB Rating – 3.4

Even though it turned out to be a huge blockbuster, the IMDB community clearly didn’t like this Bollywood movie at all – and rated it 3.4! The movie explores the tale of two childhood buddies who are aspiring to be the coal mafia and end up falling for the same woman.



Enes Batur (2018)

IMDB Rating – 3.3

A self-congratulatory flick that was made by the Turkish YouTuber Enes Batur, the movie is as terrible as it could get. Oh, and if you didn’t know, the star was later called out for his plagiarism, so you can expect the quality of the movie for yourself!



Tees Maar Khan (2010)

IMDB Rating – 3.3

A Bollywood remake of the heist movie After The Fox, the film fails to live up to the expectation of the original work and ends up being very silly, over the top flick that isn’t as intelligent as it thinks it is.



Left Behind (2014)

IMDB Rating – 3.3

Left Behind is one of THOSE Nicolas Cage movies. A story set in a post-apocalyptic world, audiences were so fed up with the bizarre plotline that they wished for the world to end! The plot has absolutely NOTHING, and you wonder why this flick was even made.



The Human Centipede III (Final Sequence) (2015)

IMDB Rating – 3.2

If the torturous second installment wasn’t enough, the makers came out with an even more horrible third chapter called The Human Centipede III (Final Sequence). This horrible movie poster gives itself away, as it puts the viewer inside the anus. Quite a fitting allegory, we must say!



Race 3 (2018)

IMDB Rating – 3.0

A movie that stars Salman Khan in a leading role isn’t going to be a really intelligent flick in the first place. Add to that terrible writing, and an even horrible direction, you have the perfect recipe for one of the worst flicks ever made. This Bollywood flick was a glossy mess that failed to even reference the previous installments of the Race franchise in any good way.



Saving Christmas (2014)

IMDB Rating – 2.3

What’s the best thing you can tell your kids? You can tell them they have been celebrating Christmas all wrong! With a runtime of 79 minutes, we bet if you can handle it all the way through!



Birdemic: Shock And Terror (2010)

IMDB Rating – 2.2

With a very small budget, this horror flick could have been at least half a decent movie even with its poor CGI. However, it was so bad and off-putting that watching the entire movie felt more like torture than anything else!



Code Name KOZ (2015)

IMDB Rating – 2.2

A propaganda movie made in Turkey; this flick was meant to showcase the corruption scandal of 2013 from the viewpoint of Erdogan. However, the movie turned out be a corruption itself – a corruption of art, ironically!
