Two movies with some of the stupidest titles ever are hitting theaters this month: Horror flick The Bye Bye Man, which lands today for Friday the 13th, and Vin Diesel’s bicep-showcase xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, which hits next week. The former is one of the worst titles for a horror movie we’ve come across in the past 10 years, inspiring hearty laughter in the theaters in which the previewed screened and some pretty great parodies, while the xXx sequel sounds like less of a spy movie and more like something you’d find on a crusty rack behind the velvet curtain at the video store.
So, we got to thinking: What are some of the worst movie titles we’ve ever come across?

Manos: The Hands of Fate
The grandaddy of them all. Directed and produced by a fertilizer salesman, this 1966 so-bad-it’s-good cult classic has what might be the stupidest title of all time, which translated fully into English means “Hands: The Hands of Fate.” It’s been lampooned throughout the years, most memorably by Mystery Science Theater 3000, which caused Joel, Crow, and Tom Servo lots of problems. Seriously, we can’t do a better job making fun of this movie than they did, so we’ve embedded a chance to watch the episode for free, legally, above.
