If you want the effect of an uncoated lens then the easiest way is to use an old uncoated lens with a suitable adaptor for your camera, of course you would have to focus and adjust aperture manually.

I agree, but the OP said this:

You need modern lenses to do that, so that's why I thought a crappy filter might suffice. And for a bit more money, you can buy filters designed just to do special effects (including flare):
