Safe Lists
The following lists are Automatic Safe lists. They are not definitive and there might be exceptions therein, especially concerning Distributors. Generally, the presence of those on the lists in an actual creative capacity (that is, more than just a cameo or bit part. For instance, Bruce Campbell appearing in Spider-Man does not make Spider-Man safe) is enough to make a film safe. Got more? Post them and I'll update the list. Obviously, films not including these participants are safe, too. Update: I added several new names to the actors list. Some of these actors appeared in actual big budget Hollywood fare, but most of their career was in B-Movies, then obviously discard the Big Hollywood movies and just watch the B's (For example, William Shatner. Ignore Star Trek movies but anything else is fair game. Or Patrick Swazye. Ghost is probably not right, but most of his other films were B-Movies).

Automatic Safe list:

Re: 8th Annual Drive-in/Exploitation Challenge April 1-April 30, 2017

My list is also finalized. A total of 76 entries (just one shy of last year's) with 62 first time views. I didn't take too many chances this year and stuck with mostly "safe" (researched beforehand) titles, but it was a fun month nonetheless.

Best FTV:
Mondo Keyhole
Death Force
The Lickerish Quartet
Hologram Man
Requiescant
Thunder Run
Delinquent School Girls
Two Undercover Angels / Kiss Me, Monster (Red Lips)
Rifftrax: The Guy from Harlem
Hitch-Hike


Honorable Mention:
MST3K: The Return - "Starcrash"
Drive-In Delirium: '60s and '70s Savagery / Return of Kung Fu Trailers of Fury


No point in revisiting the worst.

Thanks for keeping this alive, Caligula.

List complete with 23 viewings, about what I expected. Best was what I watched of the new MST3K, loving it thoroughly. Worst was maybe my box office flop choice of The Good Dinosaur, just couldn't get into caring about anyone in it.
