LOS ANGELES, Calif. /California Newswire/ — With Thanksgiving in just a couple of days, FilmSnobbery decided to serve up another type of turkey: in this case, the cinematic variety, with a seasonal celebration of the worst films of all time. And in a survey of approximately 100 filmmakers, critics, historians and performers, the choice for the worst film of all time went to Tommy Wiseau’s utterly astonishing 2003 production “The Room.”

The Room
“In the history of motion pictures, there is nothing like Tommy Wiseau’s anti-classic,” declared Phil Hall, managing editor at and author of the books “The Greatest Bad Movies of All Time” and “In Search in Lost Films.”

“From the visceral ineptitude of the acting to the utter incoherence of the screenplay to a lethal assault of bizarre imagery to Wiseau’s brilliantly ridiculous on-screen persona, ‘The Room’ takes the cake and the whole bakery, too! It doesn’t get better – or badder – than this!”

For the Top 10 Worst Films of All Time, the FilmSnobbery survey came up with these delicious big screen turkeys:
1. “The Room” (2003)
2. “Battlefield Earth” (2000)
3. “Birdemic: Shock and Terror” (2010)
4. “Swept Away” (2002 – the Madonna remake)
5. “Manos: The Hands of Fate” (1966)
6. “Troll 2” (1990)
7. “Howard the Duck” (1986)
8. “Catwoman” (2004)
9. “Plan 9 from Outer Space” (1959)
10. “Sausage Party” (2016).
