Is it possible to compile this list?  There are so many movies and so little time, and I was wondering if it was even a viable option to come up with a list that most of us could agree on.  Besides, I need some more recommendations.  I'd start with "Manos:  The Hands of Fate", but I'm a little biased.

Obvious choices for bad cinema (besides Manos) would include Plan 9 from Outer Space, Troll 2, Battlefield Earth, The Dungeonmaster, Mazes and Monsters, and Pieces at least, I should think.

So many others I haven't seen though, so I'll let someone else either agree to my choices or offer good substitutes.

1) Megaforce
2) The Apple
3) The Being.

3) The Being.

The Being should be at the top of the list.
The second one should be Shadow Zone.

Roadhouse is bad, but it isn't bad enough for this list.

I mean, don't get me wrong.  I like Roadhouse.  But.. well, Roadhouse would be, say, the fourth circle of Hell.   We're talking all ninth circle here.

Haven't seen anything on Torgo's list.  :(  I've got work to do.

I am not sure about "The Being."  However, I completely agree with both "The Apple" and "Megaforce."

Shark Attack 3:  Megaladon really should be on there.

That's one of my Sci-Fi Channel Saturday afternoon favorites. Today appears to be another 'Mother Nature Gone Wild' day, which is not near as much fun as 'Mutant Shark/Snakehead/Frankenfish Gone Wild' day.

I've never been able to figure out exactly what's going on in Megaladon, but the groaning noise that shark makes sounds just like my dog 'Benny'.

Hammerhead: Shark Frenzy, the one where mad scientist Jeffery Combs turns his cancer-ridden son into a sort of walleyed wereshark, is right up there, too.

Here are three:

Flash Gordon from 1980

The Flash Gordon Serials from 1936

the Flash Gordon series from 1954

Watched the first  eight times and the the second three.

Only know the third from a small clip but It looked promising.


Those are essential stories.


Otherwise you could add the superior storytelling of Hobgoblins to your list.

Ok, so far I've got something along the lines of this (in no particular order, we can argue over that later).

1) Manos:  The Hands of Fate
2) Troll 2
3) Plan 9 From Outer Space ('cause it's classic)
4) The Apple
5) Megaforce (haven't seen it)
6) Megaladon (haven't seen it either)
7) The Beast of Yucca Flats
8) The Giant Claw (can't get ahold of it)

now some of these I've picked because I've seen them, and frankly, they're terrible.  Some I'm taking your word on.  However, my base isn't incredibly too big to work with.

Quick question:  Has anybody here seen "The Ice Cream Man" with Clint Howard?

I agree with most of those listed but especially THE BEAST OF YUCCA FLATS. I'd add the following as I really had a blast watching each and every one of them!:

BRIDE OF THE MONSTER
THE ANGRY RED PLANET
THE BEAST WITH A MILLION EYES
THE BRAIN FROM PLANET AROUS
CREATURE FROM THE HAUNTED SEA
FIRE MAIDENS OF OUTER SPACE
FRANKENSTEIN MEETS THE SPACE MONSTER
THE HORROR OF PARTY BEACH
INCREDIBLE KUNG FU MISSION
INVASION OF THE SAUCER MEN
KING KONG ESCAPES

Is THE APPLE really that much worse(in the sense of 'better', by the criteria of this forum!) than CAN'T STOP THE MUSIC?

As a long time fan of Valerie Perrine's legs, I've had plenty of time to develop a true understanding of just how bad this movie really is at heart.  It's like the Ann Coulter of shallow film excess!

Man, I hope I don't lose a karma point for this indescretion  Wink

Well, both definately have their (de)merits.  These movies singlehandedly brought a swift and painful death to the short-lived genre of movie rock operas.  However, I prefer "The Apple" over "Can't Stop the Music" for a few reasons.

1) It's set in the far distant future of 1994 - you can't beat that.
2) The music is awkwardly caught between a dying disco scene and the birth of glam rock
3) There's a song and dance number in hell!
4) Character names such as Alfi, Bibi, Nambi, Pambi, and Mr. Tops remind me of a bad children's book.
5) Spangles! (more than there are in "Can't Stop the Music")

It's true, watching the Village People tiptoe around their obvious homosexuality while casually dropping hints to the audience (i.e. the YMCA scene) is hilarious, but God inexplicably driving a golden Mercedes out of heaven and rapturing the hippies is too good to pass up, no matter how fine Valerie Perrine and her legs are.
