Worst movie poll screening delayed 7 days

Sheer weight of nominations buries El Reg

By Lester Haines, 23 Mar 2012

We've been obliged to postpone our promised poll of the worst film ever until next Friday due to a stampede of nominations.

Thanks to everyone who offered their suggestion as to what constitutes the most heinous crime against the filmmaker's art, and we're still working our way through the mountain of celluloid shame.

One title which is proving popular is The Room, which your humble Reg hack hadn't personally seen until yesterday. Well, I didn't watch the whole thing, just these snippets.

It's just as well I avoided the full-fat experience because after about a minute of Tommy Wiseau, I got up from my desk, walked to the drinks cabinet, downed half a bottle of brandy in one and locked myself in a darkened room for two hours.

So, now you know one movie which will certainly be on the final list. Watch this space for the other contenders for cinematic glory. ®
