Hell of the living dead and Nightmare city...both are classics.

The Wicker Man remake is actually one of the funniest movies I've ever seen.

Agreed. I had no interest in seeing it, then caught it on On Demand out of boredom, and have since watched it about four times. Just because it's that hilariously bad.

"She mates, then she terminates!"

Give Lady Terminator a tryout. A very cool but shameless Terminator rip off done by the Indonesians (Tech Noir scene look familiar?). Cheesy effects, terrible acting, bad 80's hair, metal studded leather jackets, eels residing in strange places, the silliest folklore tale in movie history about the mysterious and deadly South Sea Queen. And a smoking hot Terminator, in a sexy librarian sort of way, that gives Kristanna Loken a run ....

Well worth a viewing especially if a fan of the original Terminator or just ridiculously hilarious films...

Blood Freak is the ultimate bad/good horror movie. Watch it and your jaw will hit the floor. Also, Howling 2 is WAY worse than 3 or any of the others in the series.

I haven't seen Wild Zero in a few years. Totally forgot about that one.

Have you seen Monsturd? That'll make the list.

Anything by the Art Asylum guys would make your list.

Blockbuster Video is great for the types of movies your looking for.

Thanks everyone for the recommendations! I will definitely be checking some of these out.

Just watched another film called Dark Universe which is a rip-off of The Quatermass Xperiment. Awful, but not as funny as Alien 3000 although it has it's moments. The actors had to wear probably the worst wardrobe I have ever seen in a film. Also contains filmdom's worst astronaut.

If you can keep them coming it would be appreciated.

Some real gems;

Jason X (2001)
Uncle Sam (1997)
The Club (1994)

I had another one but for the life of me I can't remember it.

This was right around the time that people started realizing that Michael Moriarty is INSANE.

I have this movie on dvd. I was actually expecting it to be pretty good. I thought it was atleast going to be about cyborgs from the future. Boy was I let down.

Very cheesy special effects and the guns don't even work right. She uses an uzi and it shoots like a hand gun.

But yeah, very funny. Even some of the classic dialogue from Cameron's film is here.

Ah, okay. Thanks for explaining. I just assumed they were always automatic from the movies I've seen.

Mazes and Monsters with Tom Hanks is another good one, if you ever played D&D as a kid.

The lady Terminator title reminded me of another movie, Cybernator.

I bought Q the Winged Serpeant when I needed a movie that started with the letter Q so I could have a movie for every letter of the alphabet phase.

LOVE this movie. LOVE Michael Moriarty. LOVE Larry Cohen.

I coincidentally just ordered a copy finally from the GoHastings sale. Should be coming in the mail any day now.

At the suggestion of the Kickpuncher movies. "CHANGE? TIME TO CHANGE THE CHANNEL!"

Yes, oh my god yes.

Do I really have to be the first person to suggest the Toxic Avenger movies (especially the first and last ones) and ANYTHING Troma?

Other movies I'd suggest off the top of my head:

Silver Bullet ("YOUUUUU MEDDLING LITTLE SHIT!")
Maximum Overdrive
Deadly Friend


I'd also say They Live, but it really is too good a movie to be bad.

Not sci-fi or horror, but Action Jackson is gloriously, hilariously bad.

I met Mr. Oswalt as he signed my copy he admitted to never actually seeing it. ...Still a great bit though.


I'd like to put a vote in for Starcrash, a late 70's Star Wars rip-off starring The Hoff and Christopher Plummer.
