What are your favorite films with atrocious production values, horrid dialogue, worse acting and the ability to make you die laughing or wincing?

I get a kick out of:
Uptown Girls- I can't believe anyone would give Brittany Murphy a starring role after this, and do you think her boy toy in the movie is British enough?

Monkeybone- Poor Henry Selick must've really needed money.  It's so awful and so cheesy, it seems Target can't even give it away (I regret to inform everyone I purchased my copy for the outrageous price of $5.99).

Elvira's Haunted Hills- The girl at Blockbuster gave me the oddest of looks when I purchased this.  I know why now.  It's absolutely horrible and the epitome of low budget.

I suppose I'm a bit of a masochist, but I adore awful films.  Any recommendations for me?  I'm currently debating whether or not to give Dungeons & Dragons a shot, seeing as there's going to be a sequel.

BumbleBeeTheta, if you pay to see Dungeons and Dragons, you will regret it for the rest of your life.  The only more completely atrocious attempt at making a feature length film I've ever seen was Battlefield: Earth.

But more on topic, three syllables:  Underworld.

Please Nixorbo, don't be so melodramatic!! ...I enjoyed both of those films.  smile I've seen MUCH worse too, I mean attack of the Killer Tomatoes? That film almost makes me want to vomit with rage.

Day of the Lipids anyone? Why yes,that WAS a giant bunny rabbit...

Prince of Space is godawful but it is so funny it will make you pee yourself. The chicken men from space are coming!!! This one is truly Great among the worst.

The Giant Claw. I say no more,and I refuse to accept any responsibility if you take it upon yourself to watch this. The leading actor and actress  stayed away from the premiere after the pre-screening since they knew it was going to kill their careers.

I could go on,but I should stop now. Well, I am a fanatical werewolf movie fan and I will warn anyone who likes them too to run at high speed from anyone trying to get you to watch Wolves of Wall Street. They don't even show any FUR for god's sake. 'Sexual predators" my a$$! The only good thing I am getting out of this movie is the fact that Blockbuster is willing to accept it and $12.99 to give me a new DVD of a REAL movie. Since the bastards sold me this vomit-drenched hairball for $10 it's the least they could do. GRRrrr...

The Exorcist.

I'm sorry.  But during the scenes that aren't just dull, I'm usually cracking up.  Last time I watched it with a group of people (many of whom were falling asleep) and when she spit pea soup on the guy for the first time I just cracked up and woke everyone up.

I can't decide if City Hunter with Jackie Chan is so bad it's good, or if it's just good. Either way, it is an awsome movie.

hmmm....bad, poorley made low budget movies....there's a lot out there but anything with Van Dam in it is a gold mine of atrocious production values and horrid dialogue.

He had his moments (few and far between but they where there) Highlights - Universal Solider, Hard Target and Maximum Risk  The rest are crap....and don't get me started about Legionaire

Shudders to talk about it.

I'm also a Clint fan, but his movies don't suck.

Another movie that does suck is a movie I once saw about killer ants (don't remember the name though). They kept showing the exact same fake-looking clip of ants crawling around over and over and over again.

Anyone else notice that in Evil Dead 2 (not a bad movie but still very low budget) it looks like there's daylight coming in between the boards over the windows, but when Ash goes outside, it's completely dark...

I liked Dungeons & Dragons.  Of course, I already knew how bad it was before I saw it, so I didn't expect it to be anything that it wasn't.  Also, I saw it for free.

I think that you mean Night of the Lepus.  That movie was scary, but only because of what it might have done to DeForest Kelley's acting career.

I think that was just a teaser for the sequel.  The alternate ending on the DVD was better.  Also, the deleted scenes should have been left in (the ones that were finished, anyway).

In threads like this I always recommend Three on a Meathook, a movie that really is so bad it's funny.  It's sort of an even lower-budget and less disturbing Texas Chainsaw Massacre, but it was made first (though both were inspired by Ed Gein, as was Psycho).  It was the first film by 1970s B-movie master William Girdler, who also did the classic Grizzly, which actually inspired the first Biohazard/Resident Evil game; as well as Abby, for which he was sued because it was such a rip-off of The Exorcist.

The Jean Claude Van Damme movie where he played twins.....  tongue

Other than that I though Plan 9 From Outer Space wasn't all that bad, sure it was terrible but it had a certain charm.

I haven't seen any lame '60's horror or sci-fi movies, so my knowlage is a bit limited, but of recent-ish movies I go with Mr. magoo and master of disguise.  those movies bit!  and low budget doesn't mean it's atomaticly bad.  what about best in show?

He made Bad Taste and Braindead/Dead Alive.
"I kick ass for the Lord!" is from Braindead.

Edit: To be pedantic (and I like that), Bad Taste is not a zombie flick. It is about aliens that just happen to like eating people's brains. In fact, they plan on getting human meat from earth for their new chain of fast food restaurants.

Any one remeber 'The Blob' it was one of the first movies i ever watched.  Thinking back the blob it's self looked pretty crappy and the whole idea was poor.  Though i found it entertaining, don't know if i would these days then again i was about 4 when i watched it.

No one else ever seems to have heard of this film, but In The Woods was so atrocious it was funny. I'm only going to go as far as to say you could clearly tell the monster was a stuffed model on wheels.

Dungeons and Dragons was pretty bad. Maybe I should get the DVD to see those deleted scenes, but I really lost all hope when the hero guy screams "NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!! for his dead comrade for a little while before getting back to the film. If I were the bad guy, I would have taken the oppurtunity to chop him into burger meat and then called it a day.

And of course, the less said about Battlefield Earth, the better.

The most recent example I can think of was Van Helsing. There's no doubt that the movie was bad and wasn't worth the money I paid to see it, but for some reason I enjoyed it all the same.

Dungeons & Dragons wasn't as bad as people made it out to be. There was at least some enjoyment out of it. Not that I'm saying it's good. That hero guy was a wuss and when he saw his best friend get killed, I was expecting him to run at the bad guy with firey rage, but instead, goes on his knees and cries like a wuss.

Anyway. My pick is none other than:

TORQUE.

This film was dumb, loud, and broke every law in my physics book. But damn I had fun watching this film. The bad guys looked like they were rejects from the Road Warrior. The hero seems to have the superhuman ability to survive not only a crash at 300 miles per hour, but get caught in a HUGE explosion and flung in front of a truck and almost getting his face smushed like a watermelon. What made me laugh is the fact that he gets up with like one scratch. After going through that, he should've been in a bodybag. But Oh well. I'm looking too much into the craziness of the scene. I had fun, I guess that counts for something.

Dungeons and Dragons is a terrible, horrible movie. I'm glad I saw it on TV and did not pay for this crap.

Now, a movie I paid to see and regret it later was Mystic River. This may possibly be one of the most overrated movies of the new milennium. The plot and the script were completely predictable, almost everyone overacted to the maximum (except Laurence Fishburne and Kevin Bacon who was my favorite character in the whole movie), the direction by the Clint was too boring, he didn't try to put some style into the movie, he basically just took some camera and filmed the script without adding personal flavor. Overall, a HUGE dissapointment.

Bubba Ho-Tep wasn't awful! It was great!

Anyway, my list:

1. Anything on MST3K
2. 1998 Godzilla
3. Any Godzilla Movie
4. 2 Fast 2 Furious
5. The Punisher
6. Van Helsing

That's what I was saying though, it was SO BAD.. that it was good. Loved the Ding Dong line. And the crapping a soul bit.
I love Bruce Campbell too much to diss anything he does. If it weren't for him I doubt I'd forgive that movie.
