It seems to me like a good portion of that movie is intentional humor disguised to seem unintentional.  I mean, the drive-in scene almost as a whole is a great example.  The film outright mocks itself right there, plus the whole scene with the hippie.  God, I love this movie.

Thanks to this site for helping me remember the name of this hilariously bad movie.  uy

This is what actually happened to the Toxic Avenger, before Hollywood prettied the whole thing up.  I saw the real story on VH1's "Behind the Monster."

This is, without a doubt, the WORST film I have ever seen in a theater. Saw this with a bunch of fellow drunken high schoolers when it came out in the early 80s and we raised so much hell while watching it that we were thrown out. There was ONE other person in the theater (besides us) and he was actually attempting to absorb the intricacies of the plot! The bozo actually reported us to management 5 times before we were finally given the heave-ho with about 10 minutes left.

What sticks out the most about this film was the scene in which the cameraman actually tripped while following a character up the stairs! Oh, and I distinctly recall a scene featuring a boom mic.

Other than all of that, great flick!

I'm always on the fence with this one. Some times I really enjoy it, other times I just roll my eyes. The problem for me is there aren't enough good bad moments to even things out. The DVD is still a keeper though, for nostalgic reasons.

Saw this movie at a party once.  Utterly hilarious.  I'm somewhat surprised in this review (though I know space is tight and this movie meanders like crazy) there wasn't anything about the whole "anti-porn" aspect of the picketers which I remember taking up a hell of alot more time in the movie than it should have and it was funny as hell.  It almost seemed like this was being pressed upon as some kind-of lazy attempt at making a point about society as a whole.  Their beef apparently is a "massage parlor" is moving into town so they're going around trying to get people to give a damn (just like the audience, nobody in the movie cares about the massage parlor, who the hell pickets a massage parlor anyhow.  I mean, a sex-toy shop or a "show club" I could understand but a massage parlor?).  They go to burn it down and convienently get killed by the monster (moral of the story: always welcome the decay of society, don't fight it you will only be eaten by a mutant).  Some parts of the movie definetely deserve a huge WTF like his dream with the chick on the airplane wing with bleeding eyes.  Loved the final battle in the cyanide storage plant (Idaho is a good place to dump nuclear waste and left over cyanide) even though the good guy blows open a whole bunch of cyanide containers it doesn't seem to become a major factor in killing either him or the mutant.  Actually I remember the board with a nail in it doing more damage to the main character (ouch, stepped on giant freaking nail) than the cyanide.  I guess it had gone bad.   Loved the acting in the end, so what do you do after you kill a mutant: climb to roof, look around, throw hat.

Now they can re release it with the added hook "Starring ACADEMY AWARD WINNER Martin Landau."

Don't see this movie - even if someone double dog dares you.

I own this one and I've never seen it, but I have an excuse.  I was an extra in the marching band when I was in high school.  If you're dumb enough to actually watch this movie, fast forward to the parade scene and when you see the marching band go by, look for the dumb-looking drummer with the CHiP's style sunglasses and the early 80's hair and playing a triple drum.  Then eject the movie and go find something else to do.

    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.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
