Although it's kind of a cliched choice, here's another vote for
"Plan 9 from Outer Space". Though I don't, in general, believe in
the "it's-so-bad-it's-good" school of criticism, Plan 9 is an
exception. It's so bad it's brilliant. It's perfection times -1.
Change anything, anything, no matter how small, how trivial, and you
would have a superior movie.
C'mon! How could you improve on the line "...is dead! Murdered! And
one thing is for sure - somebody's responsible!" Pure poetry.

Ok choices, but the all time worst must be:
"Glen or Glenda" : Bela again, in a touching, shocking,
revealing look at transvestites.
Naw, not Bela. The part of Glen(da) was portrayed by Edward Wood,
director of this opus as well as Plan 9.

Without doubt, at least to me, the worst science fiction movie has
to be "Santa Claus Conquer the Martians." As for "Attack of the
Killer Tomatoes", I don't think that one should count; it was
intended to be as bad as possible.
SCCtM also has the distinction of bringing to the screen for the first
time the inimitable Pia Zadora.
