So when you go looking for a bad movie to watch, what is it that you hope to see? Wobbly sets, bad directing, terrible actors? For myself I like to see something which everyone involved in with all the best intentions set out to make a good movie, but somewhere the ingredients just didn't work out. Lets just say I'd prefer the terrible ernestness of Ed Wood or woodeness of anything involving Charles Band to any of the detrius that pours forth under the name Asylum.

Anyway, how about you?

Usually Z-budget black and white horror or sci- fi stuff like the ASTOUNDING SHE MONSTER or BRIDE OF THE MONSTER, or z-budget oddity's from the 70's like BLOOD FREAK or PSYCHED BY THE 4-D WITCH.

rubber monsters wearing tennis shoes is a personal favorite! and latex effects that aren't properly applied and start peeling off 1/2 way through a scene.
  definitely wobbly sets too, like the ones on the original dark shadows. oh! and scenes where someone covered in blood shows up in the same clothes that are now clean is fun too!

A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

Charles Band's stuff was the bomb for me in the 90's.  I think I saw every Full Moon picture made in that decade!

And kitschy slasher flicks like LUMBERJACK MAN crack me up.

I still love Robot Jox, and the alien boxing one whose name escapes me atm, but I think my favourite of his was Dark Angel.

Corny rubber monsters, all the way! I particularly like Japanese tokusatsu, because they usually do cheesy kaiju the best, but there have been plenty of good ones from around the world as well.

Well,  I liked 'the green slime' a lot,  also 'the x from outer space'.

A lot of hammer flicks are good for me too.  And I like the old universal mobster movies.

I go for scifi.  I like a movie that didn't try to be awful like asylum sh-t, and that made an effort to be as good as it could be guvennut's scope and budget and still came out an entertaining B movie.

I don't like movies that are just plain stupid.

I'm a sucker for regional (often rural) movies from the 1960s and 70s. For example:

* The Giant Spider Invasion

* Axe

* Invasion of the Blood Farmers

* Teenage Strangler

* The Electric Chair

* Shriek of the Mutilated

* Three on a Meathook

Creature Features.

Give me a movie with a strange monster, atomic mutant, alien, or genetically engineered beast and I'm happy.

Exploitation films like RUSS MEYER's (BEYOND THE VALLEY OF THE DOLLS, FASTER PNSSYCAT, KILL! KILL!) or JACK HILL's (SPIDER BABY, COFFY).

All those. I like all sortsa BAD movies for all sortsa reasons. It's hard to pick a type.
I reckon it depends on what mood I'm in!

Sometimes I feel like a goofy gut-muncher like BURIAL GROUND-NIGHTS OF TERROR, then the next day I'm watching TEENAGE ZOMBIES.

Horror or scifi movies from the 70's and early 80s. I love the aesthetics of films from the 70s, probably because I grew up watching them. The hair and fashion is cool, the women are often stylish and beautiful, and the plots are ridiculous.  Hammer movies qualify, particularly the vampire ones.

Count Yorga, Vampire (1970)

! No longer available Small | Large


Invasion of the Bee Girls (1973) WARNING: NSFW

! No longer available Small | Large


Full movie here!

Also love bad 80s action movies, particularly the ninja movies with Sho Kosugi. These were just over the top funfests.

There's this particularly awful movie from 1983 called Primal Scream, released in Australia as HELLFIRE. It was a very low budget production, often shot without permits, and the whole thing is really shaky in production values.

I'm open for any type as long as they provide unintentional funny entertainment. Dull bad movies like Laserblast (1978), while I still own it, can be a chore to sit through.

Over the years I have found out that crap like Showgirls and Troll 2 are a delight to watch with people who usually don't like bad movies, because they work as comedies not meant to be. Which makes them even more funnier.

Intentional badly made movies are kind of tricky but I do love the first Sharknado. It's badness has a cool mass appeal. I'd also give Mega Piranha and Mega Python vs. Gatoroid a pass, as they are charming and at least for me, very entertaining.
