I feel cheeky starting a thread like this when I'm a newbie. But I've lurked for ages, I'm just not a poster.

I'm writing a book called The Bad Movie Bible. It's a coffee table type thing which features 101 movies that are so bad they're good. Specifically it covers the last 50 years. (As much as I love Ed Wood and co I wanted to tap into the post-Hays code and VHS eras more.)

Anyway, I've been working on it for six months and it's due for publication in May. I'm posting because I have two slots left to fill and my brain has finally keeled over. Having watched thousands of bad movies in my life I started watching half a dozen a day as research, and it's finally gotten to me. There are dozens of possibles I could put in but I've kept the standard high and don't want to compromise at the last hurdle, so I'm looking for a final round of suggestions, if anyone is good enough to make any?

The obvious stuff is all in there: Miami Connection, The Room, Troll 2, Samurai Cop, Birdemic etc. But if anyone has any less mainstream favourites they think haven't got the attention they're due, please let's hear them.

Thanks very much, this is the sort of thing I'm after.

Is that the 1979 The Demon? Operation Delta Force was already on my 'maybe watch' list so a second recommendation makes it a priority. I interviewed its director Sam Firstenberg about Ninja III recently and he sent me a bunch of cool behind the scenes pics.

(Love Space Mutiny, and Laser Mission is actually in the book. Any movie with a villain who can survive a mountain landing on him is ok by me.)

AFTER LAST SEASON. The director tried to have all copies removed form circulation, though. It's a holy grail type experience of awfulness.

"Clive [Barker]'s idea of a great time is to have a nightmare about a woman with three heads and no skin who flays your body with a pitchfork. To give you some idea, NIGHTBREED has over 200 pus monsters, including one guy with a crescent moonhead like the McDonald's commercial and a fat guy with snakes that pop out of his stomach and eat your face off, and these are the GOOD GUYS. These are the people we're supposed to LIKE."-Joe Bob on NIGHTBREED

Apparently the distributor for the film told all the theaters showing it to burn their copies because it was cheaper than having them sent back. Not a vote of confidence.

And there's Youtube to the rescue:

A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

So many choices . . . for 80's cheese, I highly recommend THE LOST EMPIRE.
For Japanese weirdness, you can't top HELLDRIVER.
And any book on Bad Movies from the 70's MUST include ZARDOZ.

Let me know when this thing is complete!

Night of the Demon (1980) -- Bigfoot rips off a guy's wang in one scene. Amazingly demented.

Scream Baby Scream (1969) -- Painter of deformed images has unconventional models. Late 60's awfulness.

Satan's Children (1975) -- Young man gang raped by biker types must prove himself worthy of a Satanic cult.

A*P*E (1976) -- 3D Korean rip off of "King Kong". The ape flips off the Army. Seriously. Awful, but fun.

Yes it is that film, set in Johannesburg where every murder is punctuated by a shot of the sea - no sea anywhere here. The director was a friend of mine and the cinematographer is a mentor of mine. Buggedout TeddyR TeddyR

Operation Delta Force was already on my 'maybe watch' list so a second recommendation makes it a priority. I interviewed its director Sam Firstenberg about Ninja III recently and he sent me a bunch of cool behind the scenes pics.

The budget on this was so low, they used fireworks as rockets, every time a weapon is raised, there's a audible click and the defence force HQ uses standard TV sets as multi function screens.  Buggedout

Another thing, the main bad guy played by Joe Lara, uses the phrase Afrikaners for Afrikaner land, little knowing that the word 'Afrikaner' means 'African' in translation.  Buggedout Buggedout

I watched Operation Delta Force last night, it's on YouTube. I had a lot of fun with it, great stuff. Man, Jeff Fahey has never short changed a movie in his life, he gives everything his all!

Thanks very much, there's some really promising stuff here.

Maybe i need to revisit Zardoz. Haven't seen if for years but I don't remember it being that bad. But I think Ishtar is quite good so...

After Last Season, R.O.T.O.R, Things and A*P*E are in the book. R.O.T.O.R is in my top 5 bad movies. Things was my go-to worst horror movie ever made until I saw Science Crazed and Ax 'Em. After Last Season... wow. I mean, just, wow.

Now I'm off to find a bunch of these suggestions.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
