A work that wraps around the awfulness scale to [[SoBadItsGood good]] and keeps going all the way back down, down, down until it's even more awful than the average victim of SturgeonsLaw. These works don't attract proper fandoms and aren't enjoyed in themselves they have neither the good points of a good work or GuiltyPleasure nor the charm of a SoBadItsGood work; they simply draw attention out of a [[BileFascination perverse sense of fascination]].

If you [[BileFascination plan to seek out these works]], note that prolonged exposure can cause wooziness, [[MadeMyselfSad depression]], [[SanitySlippage weakening of one's grasp on reality]], and [[DarthWiki/WallBanger banging your head against the wall repeatedly]].

Works this bad are found in nearly all media, but the basic "[[BileFascination I can't watch, but I can't look away]]" properties are constant enough for them to be united under one name. For all intents and purposes, such strokes of anti-genius are unique the way they fit together (or fall apart) can't be reproduced. Moreover, if it's impossible to imagine a parody of it, it ''probably'' counts.

From another perspective, consider a possible [[BrokeTheRatingScale negative value on the classic "5-star" scale]] ([[Website/SomethingAwful and there's a film website which does exactly that]]). The farther away the work in question scores from zero, [[SoBadItsGood in either]] [[BileFascination direction]], the more entertaining it is to watch. The closer to zero it is, the more it tends towards this Trope.

Horrible works can have [[SnarkBait enjoyable reviews]], as they allow a reviewer to exercise his/her writing skills to the fullest. If the reviews are uniformly more entertaining than the work, then the work is almost certainly horrible. ''Occasionally'', you'll see one (or miraculously two) slices of HamAndCheese to enjoy. Some, but not necessarily all examples of this Trope can be {{MST}}ed well.

While these works may insult their respective forms of media, they serve an essential purpose [[Literature/{{Discworld}} after all, without the "0", a perfect "10" would have little meaning]].

The "really bad" stuff has been broken down by medium. Please remember to add only ''outstanding'' examples of suckitude to each of the individual categories. '''Just because you and some people you know don't like it doesn't mean it's Horrible.''' This is not the same as Administrivia/ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontLike, since popular series are by their very nature excluded from this Trope; see HypeBacklash instead. Likewise, don't remove something from the lists unless you and several people you know think it's pretty good (''not'' SoBadItsGood).

Here are some guidelines to help:
* The work has been panned by multiple reputable critics.
* [[BoxOfficeBomb The work has mediocre sales and/or a relatively small audience.]]
* The work has been parodied for its faults by multiple different sources.

Also, keep in mind that just like any good work has to stand the test of time for its quality, so does a bad work. Sometimes the work could be incredibly [[DeadArtistsAreBetter misunderstood at the time of its release,]] or it could just grow on people. So when adding things, don't just rely on reviews and opinions from the time the work was released. Try to find some modern opinions on it as well; you might find that the work actually ''does'' have a fanbase.

Also, '''don't start {{edit war}}s'''. If somebody challenges a claim, don't try to pull the "it's only you" crap. [[EvenEvilHasStandards Civility isn't something]] DarthWiki [[EvenEvilHasStandards allows a pass on]], especially since too much bile got this page redlinked in the past. If you want to debate whether or not a work belongs here and why, do it in discussion.

Contrast SugarWiki/SoCoolItsAwesome. Compare MuseAbuse, which may occur both on this side of qualifying for actual artistic talent and its extreme opposite. See also SuckinessIsPainful, when fiction treats these works as ''actually'' being dangerous. If one episode or part of a work is this, see DarthWiki/WallBanger and DarthWiki/DethroningMomentOfSuck. Most film examples are also {{Box Office Bomb}}s, though not all Box Office Bombs are horrible. When this happens to an installment in a franchise that's normally much better, it's usually a very good sign that said franchise is stuck neck-deep in a DorkAge. For instances of bad programming and the horrors of DRM, see DarthWiki/IdiotProgramming. For those things with wheels that barely qualify as "vehicles", see the Real Life folder of TheAllegedCar. For theme parks and carnivals you most certainly don't want to go to, see the Real Life folder of CrappyCarnival.

'''''Important Note''''': Merely being offensive in its subject matter isn't enough to justify a work as Horrible. Hard as it is to imagine at times, there's a market for all types of deviancy (no matter how small a niche it is). It has to ''fail to appeal even to that niche'' to qualify here.
