View Full Version : What's your all-time favourite Badfilm?

02-17-2002, 05:30 PM
Just reading in a few other threads about lousy movies made me wonder- what's YOUR all time favourite AWFUL film? I've seen enough references to MST3K around to know that at least a few of us appreciate the art of Badfilm.
To those who don't know whereof I speak- You know those films that are so outlandishly HORRIBLE that they're actually worth watching(think plan 9 from outer space, which ironically isn't nowhere's NEAR being the worst film ever released, despite popular notions) My list is long, as I'm somewhat of a collector, so I'll wait and see what comes up before I go off listing every insanely bad movie I've ever seen.
If you're hesitating, don't worry. It's alright to admit that you watched The Postman. There's no shame whatsoever in coming out and typing the phrase "Fat guy goes nutzoid".
ALSO- don't feel constrained at all by the fact that a movie was "critically acclaimed"- I bet a lot of people here would say I was some kind of theatrical luddite if they saw my entire list of movies that should be destroyed.
So come on, where's the worst films ever??

Showgirls. Just plain horrible and if you watch it with a bunch of friends, hilarious.

I'm a fan of the Godzilla series (not the American version).

I saw Godzilla 2000 in the theatre when it came out. Guilty pleasure. :happy:

And I really cannot wait to sit down and view Godzilla X Megaguirus and Godzilla GMK.

Kung Pow: Enter the Fist, Bad Taste, The Toxic Avenger movies, Sgt. Kabukiman N.Y.P.D., Killer Klowns from Outer Space...

And the list goes on, and on, and on.

I love those black & white horror movies made in the 50's and 60's. The problem is I never remember the names. Most of their plots revolve around either hoards of insects or giant insects, or sometimes both. Real MST3K fodder.

I recently watched one about giant ants, it was really cool. I also love that one about spiders with William Shatner, another classic.

Manos, the Hands of Fate is at the top of my list. I think they should make action figures of this movie.

Absolutely ridiculous!


The head of a dying white bigot (Ray Milland) is transplanted onto the body of a black convict on death row (Rosey Grier) in an attempt at life extension!!!

AND there IS an action figure of this!

Bah! I don't see any way Scarface can be considered a bad movie. To each his own, I guess :)

Wolfwood- that's "Kingdom of the spiders". That's a GREAT flick!
Has anyone here ever seen either "Brainsucker: the ultimate frontal lobotomy" or "Spine"? Both shot on video, both extremely uncommon. If you get a chance, check them out.
Master Jedi- yeah, hands of fate was a real gem. I've seen it a couple times and I still can't figure out what the "director" was trying to accomplish.
How about "Monster Dog" with Alice"vince"Cooper? I just saw that a couple months ago, and it really belongs in this thread. If anybody saw this film and "got" it, please explain.

The Gods Must Be Crazy a bad film? YEAAARGH!!!

I've always been partial to Mortal Kombat. Great special effects (for the most part), nice cinematography, mediocre script and acting, Christopher Lambert, cheesy techno soundtrack. All this and Brigette Wilson, too!

Speaking of Chris Lambert, I suppose it's only fair to classify Highlander as a bad movie.

The Nightmare on Elm Street movies suck. But they sure are fun to watch.

Am I supposed to be scared when I watch these movies?:confused:

The first one is: "Nice Girls Don't Explode" with Barbara Harris, Michelle Meyrink and Wallace Shawn.

The second one: "Assault of the Killer Bimbos". Great "bad" film with cheesy script and props!!! I even have the soundtrack to this on LP!!! :rolleyes:

I dunno if you'd call these bad, but most people would:

George of the Jungle (Disney, Brendan Fraser)


and I am sure there are more that I am forgetting....

How about a direct rip-off od SW?

BattleStar Gallactica

The ships were awesome! But (from the movie) that was about it. I wish I could find some of the TV series on video or DVD. I like to see the episode(s) where they finally reach Earth.

Do you have access to the space network, Dr.Evazan ? They've been showing BG on and off. The pilot film was on around xmas. The one where they get to earth was on not too long ago as well. (I have it on tape, I believe, so if yer desperate I could always send you an ...original) It's really campy, but sort of fun.
The worst SW ripoff I can recall was Battle Beyond The Stars.
That thing was an abomination, all style(shoddy style, but style nonetheless) and negative substance.
How bout Allan Quartermain and the Lost City of Gold? They even ripped off the font and font colour scheme, fer pete's sake.
Or Yellow Hair and the city of gold, that was nice.

I agree with you JediPartner. I like "Nice Girls Don't Explode." What ever happened to Meyrink? She was in some really good movies and then all of a sudden it was over.
