What do you think is the best worst movie you've ever seen?

For instance, you might say "Death Race 3000" (featuring a young Sly Stallone), or maybe an Ed Wood film, or perhaps the immortal "Showgirls".

For me, it's probably the Chris Rock film "Pootie Tang", which I love like fine wine.

Wappatai to the bammies.

Huh? Wappatai to the bammies?...kids, these days.

I absolutely loathed Pelican Brief, but then I loathe anything with Julia Mr-Sardonicus Roberts in anything.

I also hated Moonstruck.

Now what constitutes a bad movie is something else altogether. Uninteresting plot, poor cinematography, bad casting and worse direction, etc. etc. This discussion will of course end up at Plan Nine From Outer Space, which ends up being so bad, it's good.

Right. So bad it's good. That's where I'm going. Not a movie that's painful to sit through and is just rotten ("K-Pax"), but something which becomes a cult classic for being so terrible ("Plan 9 from Outer Space", "Pirhanas II").

Movies that are so "bad they're good" are few and far between. And they require a certain "aging", like the ripening of cheese, to attain the exulted camp status they so rightly deserve. I remember NOT going to see Showgirls because it was so universally panned. It's still a horrible movie, but it is good...sort of; I'm not into cult-movies; I still think Rocky Horror Picture Show, is, on its own merits, a very boring movie.

"Starship Invasions" is worth it to see a flying saucer parked in front of Robarts Library in Toronto and another one colliding with First Canadian Place.

My vote is for the Chicano epic: "Blood in, Blood Out", which for me personally wins hands down for this line below:

"I don't want his porkshop...........[dramatic pause] ... I want his life ! "

It's defintely a must if you like prison flicks...

It's 'Cabin Boy' hands down for me.

Here's the blurb from All Movie Guide. I would have just linked to this, but it seems that it can't be done.

quote:
Though detractors of Chris Elliott should be warned to maintain a safe distance from the film that offered him in his first leading fancy-lad role, those who can appreciate his bizarre, sometimes mean-spirited sense of humor are in for a treat if they're willing to give this film a chance. Critically disembowelled upon initial release and destined for cult status, this love-it-or-hate-it high-seas comedy is sure to entertain fans of Elliott's all-too-short-lived television series Get a Life. Utilizing the same off-kilter humor and outlandish dialogue that drew Get a Life such a loyal cult following, Elliott populates his otherworldly comedy with such absurd characters as a giant tobacco-chewing cupcake and a half-man/half-shark, all the while offering a protagonist who is neither endearing or sympathetic and salty crew of sea-faring rogues who take pleasure in humiliating him. Though it's often said that a film needs a protagonist who can win the affection of the audience, the absence of such a character is exactly what makes the humor in Cabin Boy so effective. With his snide comments and snippy attitude, the humor lies in the fact that the audience wants to see Elliott's self-important fancy-lad cut down to size and then some. Produced by Tim Burton and bearing his influence in its colorful and bizarre look, the film also possesses an endearingly synthetic visual scheme that lends it a notably surreal quality. — Jason Buchanan

Love it.

You beat me to it. I sang the praises of Chris Elliot to my wife, insisted he was genius, begged to rent the movie, and then had to spend 90 minutes apologising and eating crow.

Second to that was a movie we all stayed up and watched back in university, called "Sasquatch, the Legend of Bigfoot". It was a low-budget, thorougly cliched story about an expedition out to prove the existence of Bigfoot. Bigfoot was just a guy in a modified gorilla suit, naturally, but there were other amusements too, such as the "native" guide played by Joe Morello, the "uncharted" United States they were searching in, the papier mache boulders the Sasquatch throws around, and the grizzled old camp cook whose name was, IIRC, "Cookie".

The scene that took the prize for me was when "Cookie" was havin' a heckuva time with a gopher that kept stealin' the food! In one scene the gopher poked out from behind a rock and ran off with a frying pan full of food, and it was abundantly clear that the "gopher" was in fact a hand puppet such as you'd make from a sock.

As cynical and world-weary university students, we were sore from laughing.

Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter

I kid you not. A Kung FU movie where Jesus Christ and his band of modern day minister warriors running around Ottawa fighting....yup you did NOT guess this one...Lesbian Vampires.

My god...it's awesome.

I will forever be fond of the film version of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, a movie so awful and politically incorrect that we made it the mascot film of our annual Movie Festival of Corn.

Of course, it may be disqualified on the basis it is a musical and all musical movies are awful, but I think this one is something special. [Humming Bless your Beautiful Hide to myself...]

In the late 1950's and early 1960's I saw some truly awful movies by Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin; Doris Day made some stinkers, as did Sandra Dee; and Elvis appeared in one or two stinkers as well. Then there's the Beach Party gang - Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon (ugh) in a series of really terrible stinkers, especially _Beach Blanket Bingo_ I think it was called. I think _Exoricist II_ is the worst I've ever seen, although I thought _Waterworld_ and _Heaven's Gate_ sucked big time, too. Some of the westerns from the 1950's and 1960's truly stunk. _Around the World in 80 Days_ was abominable. Crikey, there's been a lot of bad movies - why did I go to them? Answer: didn't know ahead of time how bad they were going to be. By the way, I love Rocky Horror - I have it on VHS and watch it at least once a year. Favourite movie is probably Belushi and Akroyd in _The Blues Brothers_ although I liked Jane Fonda in _Barbarella_ quite a bit (she's gorgeous in this) - so incredibly campy and poorly made it's cool. Groovy, even. I liked Terry Southern's _Candy_ for the same reason - so bad it's good.

"The Conqueror", as mentioned above by Jimmy
Brogan is easily the worst mainstream release, ever. Bar none.

But to be fully abreast of all bad movies, you can't discount the voluptuous work of the late Russ Myer.

"Faster Pussy Cat Kill! Kill!" is a must.

Where Eagles Dare - a very wierd WWII epic based on an Alistair McLean novel. Richard Burton looks vaguely embarassed, Clint Eastwood is Clint Eastwood but with a Schmeisser, and the Nazis can't hit anything no matter how many bullets they shoot.

I LOVED this movie when I was little - it was kinda like my Ice Station Zebra, I Howard Hughes-ed over it.

Which reminds me. Ice Station Zebra.

I first saw "I'm Gonna Get You Sucka" as a video rental in a variety store. I thought, 'yeah, right, like I'm going to rent one of those black exploitation movies.'

Then I caught it on T.V. and realized it was a parody.

A very, very, very funny parody.

Howard the Duck was soooo awful, it was hilarious. The damned ending song was stuck in my head for days, though.

Children of the Corn III was bloody terrible, to the point they used DOLLS in their special effects.

raising cain, starring john lithgow... i bought it for $2 thinking it was either gonna be a really good psycho-thriller, or an incredibly boring and laughable movie. turned out to be the latter. the plot was okay, so-so, but god, the direction was lame. events in the movie didn't build up to a consequence. things just happened for no rhyme or reason.

Oh and I forgot to add, if you're going to watch the Brown Bunny, watch it with Vincent's commentary turned on.

I Bought A Vampire Motorbike springs to mind, as does the legendary Psychomania. This is from the Psychomania DVD cover. Ahem...

Look out! The Living Dead motorcycle gang is on the rampage, wreaking havoc in their small English town. For gang leader Tom, however, mere earthly violence is not enough: he's obsessed with the occult and is convinced that he can kill himself and then return from the dead--with the help of a frog-worshipping cult and his seance-conducting mother (Beryl Reid). Remarkably, Tom succeeds and soon joins the ranks of the walking--and riding--dead! Now if he can only persuade his girlfriend and the rest of his gang to join him, but Mother and her diabolical butler Shadwell (George Sanders) may have other plans for the Living Dead, who are dangerously trespassing on uncharted spiritual grounds. "Psychomania" is a pre-punk, British horror cult classic featuring trashy violence, suburban witchcraft and some amazing motorcycle stunt sequences. Come and ride with The Living Dead--if you dare!

There's a whole stable of terrible late-sixties, early-seventies UK horror flicks from the likes of Hammer and Amicus, such as Dr Jekyll and Sister Hyde, or Terrornauts, which keep Britain's stoner population occupied of an evening.

I would add Frankenhooker to the list as well, but "Super Athlete" starring Dolph Lundgren is the best worst movie you will ever wanna see. The guy that flew the helicopter in Magnum P.I. also stars.

This is really my worst "best movie" but, what the hell, I'm in a mood to share ...

May I present "Thunderpants," a Brit flick with the byline "The Boy Who Changed the World By Farting."

I won't ask if anyone else has seen it but I'll tell you that when my friend and I watched it we had to hold each other up.

The Irrefutable Truth about Demons

quote:
Anthropologist Harry Ballard researches obscure demon cults and sects since his brother died, victim of one of those same demon-worshiping cults. One day he receives a treath from a so-called Black Convent, whose leader seeks to prey on Ballard. With the help of a strange, sexy woman he makes his way through the night in search of his salvation and the redemption of his lost brother.

This was a first date movie, and although the relationship didn't develop in the way I wanted it to, it's been a "beautiful friendship" with lots of memorable movie experiences such as this one.

Seen at the 2000 Vancouver film festival, double-billed with a movie about the ghost of Yugoslav dictator Josip Tito. The Tito film was actually okay, and featured a great calypso version of a patriotic Communist-era Yugoslav anthem. As for "Demons", it had plenty of opportunities for unintentional humour. The one thing I can recall clearly about it now is that it provoked the mental image of what Aleister Crowley might look like in lingerie, though whether this was a line from the film, or something my date suggested as we were watching, I'm not sure.

My vote for best worst movie is "The Running Man". Any movie with Arnold "Herr Gubernator" Schwartzeneggar, Jim Brown, and Jesse Ventura, deserves consideration, but what puts The Running Man over the top is how seriously it tries to take itself, and how ridiciulous the plot is. It predicts reality TV by about 10 years. RENT IT NOW!

Here is an obscure one from the late seventies or early eighties. It was a 15-20 minute short video clip called: Hardware Wars.

It was a parody of Star Wars that had a died brown Cookie Monster puppet as Chewbacca.

Freakin wierd but funny stuff!!!

How can this not be mentioned already: Santa Claus Conquers the Martians. The movie is camp before anybody had ever thought of camp. The scene with the 'bear' is one of the funniest scenes on film.

The best worst movie I've ever seen is Ghost Dad. Basically, it stars Bill Cosby as Elliot, who becomes a Ghost and then has to raise his kids as a "Ghost Dad". He's invisible when the lights are on, can be seen when the lights are off.

Every time I think of this movie I can't help but laugh hysterically.

I kid you not. A Kung FU movie where Jesus Christ and his band of modern day minister warriors running around Ottawa fighting....yup you did NOT guess this one...Lesbian Vampires.


Oh, WOW! This sounds like a very rare bird indeed. Where ever the words "kung fu", "lesbian" and "vampire" are wed, champagne cinema is born.

(Yes, I realise it's a three way marriage I've described here, but I've heard you people are very open-minded about these things.)

I'm stunned no one has mentioned thr 1980 classic Xanadu, staring Olivia Newton John and Michael Beck. Some people are just posting "bad" movies, but if we're supposed to be talking about bad movies we *love* this was always mine. Pure 80s cheese. Some of the worst dialogue and wooden acting I've ever seen and yet I love this film. Also Gene Kelly's last movie. Hell of a way to go out...

Charles, if you're going to mention Xanadu, you can't leave out that Village People movie with Steve Gutenberg .

Well thank you, Adam T, for putting "Can't Stop the Music" on high rotation in my brain.
