I’m working on updating my list of my most-disliked silent films and if I have to suffer then you do too. Spill your guts! Which silent movies do you absolutely despise?
Obviously, this is going to be based on personal opinion and there are no wrong answers. You like what you like and you hate what you hate.
Was the acting bad? The story horrid? Does the director give you a headache? Do tell! In addition to getting things off your chest, you’ll be warning people of similar taste away from a turkey, so this is really a public service.
As of right now, the worst silent movie I have ever seen is Brute Island. Its story is vile, its direction is confusing and its morals are so out of whack that it is almost funny. Brrr!
The header image is, of course, the infamous 1925 Wizard of Oz, which I don’t consider to be the worst silent ever made but plenty of other people detest the thing and surely you wouldn’t begrudge me a little of that sweet clickbait.
