B movies you liked as a kid



Loved this movie, plus I had a thing about 80's Kate Capshaw. What can I say?

Dunno about Phantasm, but is Dreamscape really a "B movie"? It had a fairly impressive cast and a $6 million budget, which was not chicken feed in 1984.

I don't know whose idea it was for a movie to be Flashdance crossed with The Exorcist but with ninjas ... but god bless them!

This movie felt life-changing to me for a brief time as a kid

Wouldn't say I liked it. But scared the hell out of me when I was about 5 or 6 years old. The Blob - 1958

The Explorers
Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins ( I think the adventure ended too)
The Last Starfighter (maybe this wasn't a B movie but in retrospect it feels like it)

Agreed on Ice Pirates.

This was another big one for me - could not get enough of the half-tank guy. I mean, look at that fucking tagline!

Re: B movies you liked as a kid

pretty much what was on HBO. Turk 182 and Night of the Comet are a couple that stand out in my mind.

Every single Japanese Godzilla/monster movie out there. A Saturday staple.

Yeah, Godzilla when it was available.

Also stuff like Cannonball Run and the older Max Max movies.

Re: B movies you liked as a kid

I was a little older when my friends and I discovered this one (probably 14ish), but we still reference it to this day.

Probably the first horror movie I ever watched as a kid, and I remember it distinctly. I was probably the same age, maybe just a little older. No more than 8 though. It was The 4:30 Movie on WABC-TV in NY (look that up if you never heard of it), and it was at my neighbor's house. Every commercial break, I went into the kitchen to check the clock, under the guise that I had to be home for dinner by a certain time, but in reality it was because I was scared shitless and needed to know how much more I had to endure.

As a kid we would put up a tent in the backyard and sleep outside all night in the summer. We ran an extension cord out to the tent for a small portable B/W tv. One night two friends and I watched HORRORS OF THE BLACK MUSEUM on the late show. When it was over we were too scared to stay outside.

BLOODFEAST
I was 4 or 5 when it was released. It was playing at local drive-in. My older sister was about 12 and word had gotten around the junior high about the movie. She talked dad into taking us to see it. For several years after, whenever I'd ask dad to go to the drive-in, he'd say "One of them better not be Blood Feast".

My Mom on the weekends use to help clean the 'Iao Theater in Wailuku, Maui. That's where she & I watched it. She knew she made a mistake letting me watch it. I had nightmares for months.
