Seen Any Crappy Movies Lately?

I’ve always had a great fondness for a good lousy movie. As a child I used to watch the sorts of movies that played in the middle of a saturday afternoon or the middle of a friday night on television. Remember, this was long before DVDs, VCRs, MST3K, and cable channels devoted to incredibly specific tastes.

Sure, sometimes you’d see something really great starring someone worth watching like Carey Grant or Ingrid Bergman. More often, though, it was rubber monsters on parade, sappy soaps in black and white, and unfunny comedies best forgotten in the mists of time.

My favorites were always the sci-fi ones. Unfortunately, since these were all played at peak non-television-watching hours to fill spaces cheaply, it was sometimes difficult to prove some of the worst ones actually existed. For years people doubted me when I spoke of Robot Monster. After all, who would dress up a guy in a gorilla suit and an antique diving helmet and think it would frighten anyone? And yet it is real.

I felt real gratitude when the The Golden Turkey Awards came out and proved that Robot Monster, The Terror of Tiny Town and dozens of other unlikely outpourings of Tinsel Town and ambitious independents everywhere were sadly as real as I’d said they were.

What’s more, that book opened up a whole new world of appalling wastes of celluloid to me. Just think! Up to that point I had never heard of Edward D. Wood, Jr. The Medved brothers voted him the worst director in the world, and I couldn’t wait to find out whether that was true. While I think there are people who have made worse movies (White Pongo, I’m looking at you!), Wood stands out because he not only made so many more movies than the directors of these turkeys, but also because the quality never improved. If anything, it got worse over time.

So what brings up these amused musings on lousy movies? Well, last week Rotten Tomatoes released their list of the hundred worst films of the last decade. There are some terrifying titles on that list. It’s also settled an argument between me and my brother the alpaca rancher. You see, he thinks because he wound up being forced to sit through Battlefield Earth (#27 on the list), I should be forced to share his misery. I told him I’d sat through even worse, so I didn’t need to do any such thing. Well, Rotten Tomatoes informs me that having suffered through Meet the Spartans (ranking in at #25 or two worse), I did, indeed, see the worse film.

So share with me, people! What’s the worst film you’ve ever seen? What was the one that was so bad it was hilariously good? Has anyone ever doubted the existence of a film you’ve tried to describe?

    I used to say that ‘Showgirls’ was the greatest worst movie I’d ever seen. Then I watched ‘Honey’. ZOMG, most fabulous least intentional train wreck evah!

    As for doubting the existence of a movie, I found myself describing one of my all-time favorite Christmas movies to my late husband and subsequently to my now significant other. ‘It’s about all these people who end up living secretly in some millionaire’s 5th Ave home over the winter jsut after WW II ends. The dad from Hazel* is in it, and Gale Storm, who’s actually the daughter of the millionaire, only the dad from Hazel doesn’t know it. Then her parents show up, but she makes them pretend they’re not the millionaire and his wife.” Got the ‘you’re making that up’ look from each of them in turn.

    Wasn’t I delighted to (a little smugly) introduce both of them to ‘It Happened on 5th Avenue’. Available on DVD, btw.

    *A sit com from the mid-60’s. I feel kind of old all of a sudden.

    I think the worst movie I have ever seen was The Big Blue. It was so boring I actually left the theater before it was done. This one also qualifies as the movie no one believes me about – it wasn’t until I found it on IMDB.com that I was able to actually prove to people it existed.

    As far as a bad movie so bad it’s funny, I would have to throw my two cents in for “Reptilicus” a 1961 Danish movie. The basic plot is some Danish miners find part of a prehistoric reptile, it gets regenerated and rampages throughout Denmark a la Godzilla.

  3. Alexis October 3, 2009 at 10:25 am #

    Siesta with Ellen Barkin and Gabriel Byrne. Also starring…wait for it…Julian Sands and Grace Jones. From IMDB: “Claire (an American) wakes up in a terrible state at the end of a runway in Spain. As she tries to account for her state (blood-soaked and bruised), she has flashbacks from the past few days. She thinks she’s killed someone, but isn’t sure, and now she’s wandering the Spanish streets without money or a clear memory. ”
    Hot guys? Check. Unconventionally sexy women? Check. Worst plot EVERRRR? Check. My ides of a perfect bad movie.

    My roommate is a connoisseur of movies that are hilariously bad. She hosts bad movie nights every month. We have seen some doozies. The absolute worst one so far has been Jesus Christ Vampire Slayer. Set in Canada, Jesus Christ comes back to Earth to save it because vampires are killing lesbians. The whole movie is very poorly dubbed, and it leaves you asking “what the hell did I just watch?!”

    Another favorite in the intentionally bad category is Zombie Strippers. It stars Jenna Jameson (but it’s not porn – at least, not quite). It’s about a zombie virus that is released in this small town (of course) and strippers start turning into zombies. The best part is that the story is actually a metaphor for the Bush Administration’s involvement in Iraq. Really, I’m not joking. I highly recommend it.

  5. Twistie October 3, 2009 at 10:50 am #

    ZOMG! Phyllis, I remember Hazel! I loved it when I was a kid. I’ll definitely have to look for that film. It sounds pretty awful.

    dr nic, Reptillicus sounds like my idea of a horribly great time. I also have to wonder if it may have played a part in inspiring Jurassic Park! Maybe it needs to be on a double feature with Godzilla 2000, which features my favorite bad line of all time: “There’s a little Godzilla in all of us.”

    Alexis…Siesta, you say? This one sounds like a perfect Turkey Platter Film Extravaganza at Casa Twistie Night offering. Julian Sands is always good for extra points. Also you can tell I’ve been writing for a fashion and lifestyle blog for a while when my mind’s first interpretation of ‘runway’ was a catwalk rather than an airport.

  6. Jane October 3, 2009 at 11:53 am #

    Worst movie I ever saw in the theater was “Jaws 3D,” but “Class of 1999” (featuring Malcolm McDowell as a high school principal) was up there.

    Worst movie seen on DVD: Well, I used to have this housemate who loved rotten movies. So I have seen “Ratfink and Boo Boo,” which features some of the lamest superhero costumes ever purchased at Kmart, and “Pulgasari,” for which North Korea’s Kim Jong-Il kidnapped talent from South Korea, with predictably awful results.

  7. Sarah Fowler October 3, 2009 at 12:52 pm #

    All these remind me of that show Mystery Science Theater 3000, where the characters make snarky comments over truly bad (usually sci-fi) movies like Pod People, Cave Dwellers, Mitchell, and Manos: The Hands of Fate. Classic!

  8. La Petite Acadienne October 3, 2009 at 1:42 pm #

    jen209 — you took my answer. :) We saw Jesus Christ, Vampire Hunter once on TV, and were absolutely mesmerized by how awful it was.

    And yes, MST3K has made many bad movies tolerable. Pod People is definitely the best. (“Trumpy, do you know what playing is?” “Is that when I break you in half?”)

  9. Twistie October 3, 2009 at 1:43 pm #

    jen209, I’ve heard of Jesus Christ, Vampire Slayer. It’s on my list of bad movies I Deperately Need To See. While I hadn’t heard of Zombie Strippers before today, it’s one that clearly needs to be added in a top ten slot.

    Jane, those sound like evergreen horrors.

    Sarah Fowler, I’ve been a big fan of MST3K for years. Ah the wonders of Manos: Hands of Fate, featuring the Haunting Torgo Theme!

  10. perletwo October 3, 2009 at 1:52 pm #

    ‘Ice Pirates’ has a special place in my heart from many a late-night cable TV viewing.

    I saw ‘Flash Gordon,’ the 1980 one, and ‘Can’t Stop the Music’ in the theater. I can’t explain why, except, well, 1980. Who knew any better?

    Also, ‘Sextette.’ Mae West’s last film. It’s a horror movie of the unintentional kind.

  11. TeleriB October 3, 2009 at 2:22 pm #

    Movie I left my seat to go ask the popcorn guy how much longer the awful would last: The Cable Guy

    Movie rental I turned off after first 15 minutes: King Arthur (2004). I was so psyched from the trailer (Roman Britian villas! Lorica segmentata!) but it utterly failed to catch my interest.

    Most surreal movie caught unintentionally in a hotel room: Six String Samurai, in which Buddy Holly traverses a post-apocalyptic American landscape with katana and guitar in hand to get to Lost Vegas, where the King (wuh-huh) has just died.

  12. klee October 3, 2009 at 2:28 pm #

    “Eyes wide shut” and not in a so-bad-it’s-good kind of way. I left the movie theatre furious that I lost 3 hours of my life watching it. I’m sorry to say, I think Kubrick died of shame.

    Fun bad movie: “The 5th Element”

  13. Phyllis October 3, 2009 at 2:32 pm #

    Oh Twistie, I didn’t mean to leave the impression ‘It Happened on 5th Ave’ was bad. It’s a sweet little movie, just perfect for family Christmas viewing. I just meant that I found it funny that I could describe it to two different people, both movie freaks, and neither of them recognized it.

    And I kind of *heart* Ice Pirates. I mean, it’s no Spaceballs, but still. I remember Rober Urich talking about Ice Pirates once on Johnny Carson and mentioning he’d recently received a residual check for like $1.89 for a tv showing of Ice Pirates.

    Sheesh, Hazel, Robert Urich, Johnny Carson. I am dating myself, aren’t I?

  14. Twistie October 3, 2009 at 2:33 pm #

    perletwo, the phrase ‘it was 1980’ explains so much in life. I say stick to that story. I’ve heard a lot about Sextette, but still haven’t seen it. Scary, indeed.

    TeleriB. I feel you on King Arthur. Six String Samurai, OTOH, sounds like one to check out. Much better than the accidental horrible movie I saw in a hotel once. I have no idea what it was called, but it starred Charlie Sheen as the only person on Earth to know the aliens with knees that bend backwards are coming to invade us.

    Still, there’s one reason I don’t regret failing to have the strength and will to turn it off or even change the channel. There’s a scene where Charlie Sheen is talking to his boss who has been working with the aliens. When the boss tells him he looks good (after much running around in sewers and the desert and being beaten up half a dozen times), Charlie gives his second expression, the one where he narrows his eyes, and delivers the deathless line: “I look like a can of smashed a**holes.”

    To this day, that’s my way of describing myself after a particularly hard day. It still makes me giggle.

  15. Cat October 3, 2009 at 3:46 pm #

    I was about 12 or 13 years old and spending the night with my best friend who lived down the street. We had rented several movies to watch. Someone had put the wrong movie into one of the cases. I can’t remember what movie we thought we’d rented, but in its box instead was something called “Blood Sucking Freaks.” We watched it anyway and it gave me nightmares for weeks. This is not a “so bad it’s good” movie or a “bad movie must-see.” This is a bad movie with no redeeming characteristics whatsoever.

    As for “so bad it’s hilariously good” movies, there are so many! We used to do a weekly “sh*tty movie night” with friends, and we saw a lot of hilariously bad ones. I guess Plan 9 from Outer Space was one of the best of the worst.

  16. Margo October 3, 2009 at 3:47 pm #

    perletwo, I’ve seen about ten minutes of Sextette, and wish I’d had the bravery to see it out ’til the end.

    The worst film I’ve ever endured is Nothing But Trouble, dir. Dan Ackroyd, feat. Dan Ackroyd (wearing a prosthetic nose shaped as a penis, please note), Demi Moore, and Chevy Chase. Includes a scene with a giant man-baby in a diaper pursues the Demi (looking as if she’s been lobotomised) and Chevy. Close to ruined the Blues Brothers and Ghostbusters for me. I was babysitting at the time, and had to sit through to the end.

    My favourite bad/brilliant movies are chopsocky martial arts films. There will also always be a place in my heart warmed by Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo, and Vanilla Ice’s immortal Cool As Ice.

  17. Meg October 3, 2009 at 3:52 pm #

    Worst bad movie I’ve sat through is actually a tie – Manos, Hands of Fate and Incubus (William Shatner + Esperanto).

    So bad it’s hilariously good has to be The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra, which has spawned a whole bunch of in-jokes among friends, including an Amish Terrarium entered into the Mad Science Fair at a local sci-fi con. Apparently there’s a sequel, which I shall have to track down.

  18. Cassie October 3, 2009 at 5:12 pm #

    My grandmother has a penchant – handed down to me and my mother – for starting to watch movies and “hoping it gets better.” Needless to say, it rarely does.

    Worst movie I ever saw in a theater is, no question, the remake of “The House on Haunted Hill”. Terrible. Passable acting, but some of the dumbest scenes and lines I’ve heard in a long, long time. I’ve watched it since then – to see if it blew as much as I remembered it doing – and it does. It’s just less gross, cause I’m older, lol.

    Worst movie on DVD goes to “Scary Movie”. The whole franchise gets one humongous *eyeroll* from me. It strikes me as lazy filmmaking, for one, and for another, it’s just . . . not that funny. *shrug*

    Worst movie on TV is also the movie no one believes exists. Or rather, until I found you could rent it at Hollywood Video, lol. It’s called “Monkey Shines”, and the plot is as follows: Man is hit by car and becomes a quadriplegic. Instead of getting a helper dog, he gets a helper monkey. The monkey becomes obsessed with the man, and starts killing people who piss off the man (or the monkey, really). Finally, the man – still paralyzed from the neck down, mind you – kills the monkey, and undergoes a surgery to repair his back. While under anesthesia, he has a nightmare that, when the surgeons cut into his back . . . THE MONKEY POPS OUT! And then we find out it’s just a nightmare, and he walks off into the sunset. I kid you not.

    So bad it’s good winner is called “Mindhunters”, featuring LL Cool J. FBI profilers in training are undergoing their last “field” test, run by kinda-crazy-teacher Val Kilmer, but then someone starts killing them one by one. Most improbably death scene – being frozen solid by a canister of liquid nitrogen aimed at your feet.

    . . . Kinda got on a roll there, huh?

  19. Margo October 3, 2009 at 5:28 pm #

    MONKEY SHINES! Cassie, I verify.

  20. scattered marbles October 3, 2009 at 5:50 pm #

    The worst movie that jumps to mind was Hulk, I was at the drive-in theater watching it and it was just so mind numbingly boring that we ended up just leaving cause we couldn’t handle it anymore. Usually i can tolerate and find something good or amusing in what I am watching but not this time.

  21. LizaBet October 3, 2009 at 7:53 pm #

    May I suggest for your viewing “pleasure”:

    1. Night of the Lepus – excrutiating bad sci-fi flick about giant, flesh-eating bunny rabbits. The truly awful special effects, miserable acting, and the complete lack of plot put it in the ‘so bad it’s good’ pantheon.
    2. Hardly Working – I was only 13 when I was subjected to this Jerry Lewis stinker and attribute any and all adult pathologies to that experience.
    3. League of Extraordinary Gentlemen – industry gossip has it Sean Connery retired from making movies because of this overblown, incoherently muddled mess. Try to watch it through and you’ll understand why. And finally:
    4. Slow Dancing in the Big City – lonely reporter Paul Sorvino falls in love with a ballerina in this sappy 1979 tearjerker. The improbable storyline piles cliches upon melodrama and that climaxes in a howler of a finale that has to be seen to be believed.

  22. marvel October 4, 2009 at 12:51 am #

    Condorman. Only notable for the cognitive dissonance that occurs when trying to reconcile the appearance of the original Phantom, Michael Crawford, as… Condorman?

  23. Synnamin October 4, 2009 at 1:01 am #

    Meg: I second Lost Skeleton of Cadavra, though it’s intentionally “bad”. I will occasionally say “mrower” and “I sleep now.”

    Another intentionally bad film is Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death. It’s a spoof on Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness, with Bill Maher and Shannon Tweed (a porn actress) playing a feminist hired to seek out the Piranha Women, who live in the uncharted Avocado Jungle (San Diego County or thereabouts).

    I’m not sure if it’s intentionally bad or not, but I lovelovelove this film: Repo! the Genetic Opera. Anthony Stewart Head, Paris Hilton, Sarah Brightman, Alexa Vega, Paul Sorvino, Ogre… I like to think of it as a Rocky Horror for the 2000’s.

  24. Ripley October 4, 2009 at 1:19 am #

    The worst movie I’ve ever seen is “Copland,” with Sylvester Stallone. I wanted to stab myself in the eyeballs during this movie, but then I thought, “Why punish myself? I should stab Sylvester Stallone in the eyeballs.”

    My favorite bad movie is “Earth Girls Are Easy.” Geena Davis, Julie Brown, Jim Carrey, Damon Wayons, and Jeff Goldblum. Oh, yes please!

  25. Cara October 4, 2009 at 7:29 am #

    Everything George Lucas did in the last six or seven years: Star Wars 1, 2 and 3 (as opposed to the old 4, 5 and 6, which I still like, apart from the Ewoks) and Indiana Jones 4 – seriously – why, George?!
    The Mummy 3 was quite awful, as was Wolverine. “Let the right one in”, a swedish vampire movie about a murdering vampire in Sweden, that one was plain boring.
    Everything Uwe Boll ever made.
    “Burning in the wind”, a movie about an immigrant worker in a factory in Switzerland who falls in love with his sister. Depressing and boring.
    “King Arthur” – awful.
    I’m surprised noone mentioned “300” yet, the dialogue including “This is Sparta” still makes me cringe.

  26. Jessie October 4, 2009 at 9:14 am #

    Most of my bad movie experiences were lightened by mst3k,one of my fave shows.i think the worst movie ive seen riffed was either TISCWDTSLABMUZ OR manos.non riffed.santa claus meets the easter bunny

  27. dcsurfergirl October 4, 2009 at 10:48 am #

    About ten years ago, my college-age brothers and their best friend woke me out of a sound sleep at 3:00 am on Saturday after an amazingly long Friday from hell (go figure) to watch the MST3K version of “Santa Claus Conquers the Martians”. I had loved this movie–as a toddler. I laughed all the way to 5:00 am!

  28. Lisa October 4, 2009 at 10:52 am #

    I’d have to say I’ve seen several good bad movies. One on the list is “Spirit of 76” starring David Cassidy as a time traveler. He and two companions travel back in time to what they think is July 4 1776, but it’s actually July 4 1976. No one believes me when I tell them about this movie.

  29. Twistie October 4, 2009 at 11:20 am #

    Lisa, here’s your proof: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0100670/plotsummary

    Cassie, I have also heard of Monkey Shines. So has IMDb: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0095652/ BTW, how sad is it that Stanley Tucci appeared in this mess?

    Meg, you gave me nightmares. William Shatner in Esperanto???? The mind boggles. And ‘splodes.

    Synnamin, as much as I adore Anthony Stewart Head, I can’t bring myself to watch Repo. In the trailer I saw there was way too much blood for me to stomach and the music had a Wagnerian ring to it that just…I almost think I’d rather watch William Shatner in Esperanto. Those of you who are less weenieish, I encourage to check it out.

  30. raincoaster October 4, 2009 at 3:06 pm #

    Roger Corman is sadly under-represented here. I particularly recommend Buckets of Blood, which has some hip beat poetry complete with berets to recommend it.

    But my all-time-favorite is The Valley of Gwanjii, which is a Western which takes place in Mexico and features James Franciscus and dinosaurs. Yes, there’s a dinosaur rodeo show. And a gypsy curse. What more could you ask for? A tyrannosaurus rex going apeshit in the Colosseum. A dino death scene to wrest tears from the very stones themselves.

  31. raincoaster October 4, 2009 at 3:11 pm #

    There is also Greaser’s Palace which really couldn’t be any stranger. A Western sort of Godspell…they did a lot of drugs back then, I tell ya.

  32. Sara Darling October 5, 2009 at 12:50 am #

    Holy crap! Someone else has seen “Night of the Lepus!” I heart this movie with a burning passion — it’s like “The Blob” but with bunnies. In my youth, TBS used to play it easily 2-3 times each summer (let’s gently say 80’s into mid 90s) — I haven’t had cable in awhile so I’m not sure if they still show it. Not once has anyone I’ve spoken to about the film ever heard of it, nonetheless seen it.

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0069005/

  33. Twistie October 5, 2009 at 10:47 am #

    Sara Darling, I may not have seen Night of the Lepus, but I’ve certainly heard of it!

    One of the best comment threads ever! I hereby nominate Howard, the Duck.

  35. rainebeaux October 5, 2009 at 12:26 pm #

    Just plain bad (guess which one I had sense enough *not* to pay to see?): Vampire in Brooklyn; B.A.P.S.; Bones; The Cable Guy; Valentine.*

    *if I EVER see David Boreanaz (sp) in the Chi…*ahem*

    So bad they’re good: Santa Claus Conquers the Martians; Flash Gordon**; The Stuff.***

    **proud owner of a VHS copy and the soundtrack.

    ***two words: killer yogurt.

  36. brooklynshoebabe October 5, 2009 at 2:06 pm #

    The worst movies I’ve seen that didn’t even fall into the bad but funny/enjoyable were (in no order): Boxing Helena, 300, Showgirls, The Transformers, Fantastic Four, Deception (with Ewan McGregor & Hugh Jackman, two actors I love), Barb Wire, and that awful movie with Clive Owen and Jennifer Aniston. I kow there’s more, but I can’t think of any more.

    Bad but incredibly fun movies: G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, The Fifth Element, The Deep Blue Sea.

  37. Gelinda October 5, 2009 at 2:22 pm #

    Quintet.

    Paul Newman. Post-apocalypse. Corpse eating German Shepherd dogs. But still, Paul Newman.

    Poor guy, now he’s dead they’re actually including this one in a collection of his films.

  38. raincoaster October 5, 2009 at 3:36 pm #

    I have a bit of the William Shatner in Esperanto film on my blog: here ya go, don’t say I never did nuthin for ya. And if you’re the patient type, the whole thing’s been posted to YouTube; if you’re not, the DVD has just been released! I bet you’re thrilled.

    And I wanted to add The Fearless Vampire Killers, starring Roman Polanski and Sharon Tate. And the original Casino Royale with David Niven and Woody Allen as James Bond.

    Lotta drugs in the Sixties.

  39. Animal_Girl October 5, 2009 at 10:44 pm #

    I have to agree with several of the choices on this list including “Jesus Christ Vampire Huner: His Faith Impales You” (my friends can thank me later for forcing them to watch it and refusing to turn it off) and Night of the Lepus both of which I watched for the first time this last summer. Also I have to include Black Sheep (not the one with Chris Farley); it is intentionally bad movie set in New Zealand abot a guy who fears sheep who returns to the family farm at the suggestion of his psychiatrist so of course there end up being weresheep/zombie sheep. “Dead and Breakfast” is also a great movie and is narrated by a country and western band…until they are turned into zombies…then they RAP the narration. Oh and we can’t forget Killer Klowns from outer space where they turn people into cotton candy.

    Childhood favorites would also have to inlude the Toxic Avenger” and “Return of the Toxic Avenger” which were classics on USA Up All Night.

    I also have it on good authority that “Calamari Wrestler” is a great bad movie but I can’t say from personal experience…yet.

  40. Twistie October 5, 2009 at 10:57 pm #

    Oh Animal Girl, you are in for a huge treat with Calimari Wrestler! I howled with laughter through the whole thing. It’s awesome bad!

    Today I saw a great lousy film for the first time. It’s called Chained For Life and tells the tragic tale of a pair of cojoined twins, one of whom is on trial for murder.

    Oh, my Dad LOVED “Night of the Lepus”! As he said, “But they’re still … bunnies!” Doesn’t matter that they’re 40 feet tall, flesh-eating, whatever … they’re bunnies! Not going to find the “frightening” in that.

    One of my don’t-miss-favorites: Satan’s Cheerleaders! It’s a real popcorn-tosser (at the TV screen, rather than “up”).

    I actually LOVE “Earth Girls Are Easy”. And, believe it or not, I don’t think “Showgirls” is that bad a movie; I’ve seen far worse. I’ve certainly seen far more PRETENTIOUS movies, ugh. I like “Fifth Element” and “The Fearless Vampire Killers”, too, on their own merits (minimal though they may be).

    I’ll watch “bad” over “pretentious”, any day. I’ll scream more over “historical” movies that aren’t, than I will over popcorn-tossers.

  43. Manolo October 14, 2009 at 2:36 am #

    The Night of the Lepus!!!! Ayyyyy! Nearly 20-years ago, when the Manolo still thought he could write verse, he composed the short poem based upon this movie.

    Tuesday 2:37 AM
    Sitting in my underwear
    watching a movie about giant rabbits
    that ate a town in Washington.
    It wasn’t very good.
    But I watched in anyway,
    wondering where you had gone with my car.

  44. Twistie October 14, 2009 at 3:04 am #

    Wow! Talk about some deathless verse, Manolo!

    David Boreanaz is definitely the best actor for Bones-,-
