IMDb's Worst Rated Movies Of 2014: From 'Tammy' To 'Saving Christmas'

Last week, we took a look at the highest rated movies of 2014 on IMDb. Today we look at the worst (lowest) rated movies. Again, the movies are rated year round by IMDb users, and provide one of the largest sampling of mainstream public opinion on films. Find out which 40 films are on the IMDB worst movies of 2014 list, after the jump.

Note: IMDb is a good resource, and I even believe it can be a great source for gauging public opinion of a film. That said, sometimes fan communities spike the ratings for highly anticipated new releases, or in this case for hated movies and franchises. This list was compiled on December 16th 2014, consisting of English-language films which had at least 1,500 votes. (To eliminate micro releases few people have seen.)

You will notice some trends on this list:

  • The abundance of lower budget horror and thrillers. While we saw some indie genre films in the highest rated list, it seems the bottom of the year claims a lot of the direct-to-video genre films.
  • There are also a handful of faith based movies. I haven't seen any of them and can't speak to their quality (I wouldn't expect to like the few listed here) but I think its safe to assume that Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas high (or low?) placement on this list is likely the result of a community of people who don't agree with the filmmaker's religious or political beliefs spiking the vote. I'm not saying the film isn't bad, I'm just saying its extreme placement is likely the result of mob-style voting.
  • You will also see quite a few bad comedies – From big Hollywood studio releases like Sex Tape and Tammy to smaller indie films like Space Station 76.  Even the recently-departed Robin Williams couldn't keep A Merry Friggin' Christmas off this list.
  • And while Dwayne Johnson's Hercules was rated slightly better than the films on this list, you will find two other Hercules movies in the bottom 20.
  • And the list also contains a bunch of direct to video sequels that don't look very good.
