What's the worst movie you've ever seen?  How about Plan 9 From Outer Space — a 1959 "classic" horror movie where aliens take over earth?  Or maybe you prefer something a bit more modern — 2003's Gigli was torn to shreds by critics and audiences alike.   

Now what if that bad movie was so terrible it became, well, good?  Fans of the movie The Room have dubbed it the worst movie in the world.  And yet they're lining up to get into screenings across the country.  Its become a cult classic with shots that are out of focus, terrible acting and a nonsensical storyline.  

This isn't the first time a flop has found fame.  The Rocky Horror Picture Show was panned when it first came out, and only did well in Los Angeles when it was first released.  However, a year later it found its following at midnight showings, the first of which took place in New York City.  30 years after its release, the Library of Congress selected the film for induction into the National Film Registry.  It's now one of the best known and most successful midnight movies of all time.

So tell us, what's your favorite worst movie?
