12 Movies So Awful, Entire Documentaries Were Made About Them

Ah, the joys of cinematic disaster. For some, there is nothing quite as entertaining as watching a movie that is so bad it’s almost good, or so terrible it’s almost funny. And while some of these movies have become cult classics, they have all been the subject of documentaries that explore the behind the scenes chaos and drama that went into making them.

So, if you’re in the mood for a good laugh, or if you’re looking for a good cry, then this list of documentaries about the worst movies ever made is just for you. From Jamie Kennedy's 'Son of the Mask' to Tommy Wiseau's 'The Room', from Paul Verhoeven's 'Showgirls' to Michael Cimino's 'Heaven's Gate', these documentaries will take you on a journey through the highs and lows of some of the most infamous films of all time. So, sit back, relax, and prepare to be amazed (or appalled) by the stories behind these cinematic disasters.


CRACKED THE ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU The 1996 Island of Dr. Moreau movie was a disaster, so they made a doc about it called Lost Soul. It has interviews and footage of the chaos, like Marlon Brando and Val Kilmer causing trouble, and the director getting fired and disappearing.
