The Hastings Bad Cinema Society's Poll of the worst movies of the 20th century (in alphabetical order). Their website is now sadly defunct but the list is present on several list sites on the web, and the original is accessible using the Wayback Machine Archive.

The poll's introduction reads:

On June 16, 1998, the American Film Institute announced its choices for the 100 greatest films ever made. The group called its list 100 Years, 100 Movies. To no one’s surprise, just about everybody in America disagreed with the titles on the list. Anybody can make a list of great movies. We [The Bad Cinema Society] thought it would be helpful if a group had the guts to put together a list of the all-time worst films. So, about a month after the AFI announcement, the Hastings Bad Cinema Society announced that it too would be making an "end of the century" list, but the 100 movies it planned to "honor" would all be stinkers.
