Five Bad Netflix Movies That You Should Watch Anyway

Published

When it comes to movies, Netflix has one of the biggest libraries around today. With so many movies to choose from, you’ll run into some stinkers. If you let them, those cringeworthy films can be a good time. We look at some movies that are so bad, they’re surprisingly good.

Godzilla: Planet Of The Monsters

Animated sci-fi film Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters came at a bad time. Audiences were too busy wondering about the live action Godzilla that this fell under the radar. When it comes to writing, the human characters are completely wasted with bland lines. The animation, which is done by Polygon Pictures, makes this film a bit easy to digest.

The Babysitter

McG’s portfolio is a mixed bag. While he directed hits like Charlie’s Angels, he’s known to put out some stinkers. Teen horror film The Babysitter isn’t necessarily a bad movie. Plotwise, the idea of a violence-hungry babysitter is fantastic for a retro horror flick. The delivery is a bit choppy with performances from Samara Weaving and Judah Lewis.

The Guest House

Produced, directed, and written by Michael Baumgarten, The Guest House fell flat as a lesbian film. One thing that gained high praise, however, is the chemistry between actresses Ruth Reynolds and Madeline Merritt. Reynolds’ performance as Rachel earned her a Rising Star Award at the 2012 Melbourne Independent Filmmakers Festival.

The Most Hated Woman In America

Before her horrific death, Madalyn Murray O’Hair fought for keeping prayer and Bible reading out of schools. Netflix drama The Most Hated Woman in America gives a lukewarm portrayal of her ordeal. In the midst of some awkward acting, Melissa Leo does deliver a standout performance as O’Hair.
