Is this the worst film ever made ?
3 June 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Like the guy who posted the first comment I bought this film for only 1GBP, I knew the film was going to be bad. I hoped that it would be in the so bad it's good category. It's so much more than that, it's appalling, it's the pits, it is without doubt the worst film I've ever seen, I had to watch it in five sittings. It's 89 minutes of the hoariest clichés and cod psychology. It has the worst cast, the worst sets, the cheapest and nastiest special effects. I could go on but I don't want to over egg the pudding !

I've not seen every film ever made so I'm not qualified to call it the worst film ever made but I can't imagine that any other film could be worse than this. Like the guy who made the first post, I too like bad films. If 'The Producers' (you know, Zero Mostel & Gene Wilder) had picked this script, it would have totally spoilt that movie for their theatre audience would have walked out and never come back.

It's a howler, watch it with a companion because you'll be begging them to kill you before the film is halfway through. Druggies save yourself some money, you don't need any mind altering drugs, just watch this film it will be a trip. If finding the worst film ever is you're Holy Grail, find this, buy it, take it back to your Camelot and stick it in ye olde DVD player, watch it and then write to thank me for putting you on to this.

I will treasure this film for ever. Thank you Richard Driscoll !!!!

PS, does anyone know if any of the cast or crew ever worked again, apart from in McDonalds that is ?

PPS, if you only see one bad film before you die, make sure it's this one.
