Probably MESSAGE FROM SPACE when I was 10.  It was released to capitalize on STAR WARS and has a cool poster featuring schooners sailing through space.

When my mom dropped me off at the theater I assumed every space movie was going to be an exciting, awe-inspiring spectacle just like STAR WARS.  Instead I experienced... something Japanese.  I ended up walking out of the theater and standing around outside until my Mom came to pick me up.  I learned a hard lesson that day.

I'd like to see it again now that I'm older and more mature, though.   TeddyR

I had a couple of the Godzilla movies on VHS.  They might still be around somewhere - in a box with all my other VHS tapes.

I remember watching Plan 9 on TV in Virginia with a couple of my friends when I was 9 or 10 --
Even then I sensed that this movie was . . . something "different" from things like The Wolfman or Frankenstein, which they also showed.

Jack Frost 2 was the first bad movie I remember seeing. I remember expecting to be scary and in the end I remember thinking, "This has to be a joke.". I've been hooked ever since, renting horrible movies and then laughing at them with friends.

1972

Me: 10 years old

The Martin Theater - Albertville, Alabama

Feature Presentation: NIGHT OF THE LEPUS

   TongueOut

The Backstory:

Due to the extremely frightening and mysterious (and, naturally, completely misleading) television ads there was some discussion amongst my and my friend's moms that this might be way too terrifying for my buddy Steve and me to see.

Small | Large


We were feeling pretty adult when we were finally allowed to go see this and then it turned out to be . . . rabbits.

Giant, killer rabbits.

Star Trek trivia: To give you an idea as to how insignificant and out of the public's mind Star Trek was still in the early 70's the trailer doesn't mention DeForest Kelly, who actually had a fairly major part. A couple of years later and his name would have been above the title!

The Deadly Mantis, I saw this at the Tumbleweed theater in El Monte, Ca. as a boy, it's the first of many films that provoked me to say "I can't believe I paid to see this !" I actually took my wife to see "Night of the Lepus". The advertising was very misleading, a giant black eye surrounded by fur, this had to be a "Lepus", even if I looked the word up I probably still would have taken her to see this film. It does have a couple funny moments, especially the sheriff's announcement "There is a herd of killer rabbits approaching." I wonder how long it took to get him to say that with a straight face. My wife doesn't seem to appreciate "B" movies of this type, tonight she played bingo on our laptop rather than watch Marshall Thompson in the cinematic masterpiece "Fiend Without a Face" with me. No accounting for taste I guess.

"Fiend Without a Face" is great.  I was terrified of that movie as a young boy.  First off, the creatures are invisible and they strangle you to death.  Once they appear they are horrific hopping brains that push themselves around with their spinal columns!  And they're full of raspberry preserves!

I recently joined Netflix, now I can watch the all the "B" type movies that I enjoyed as a youngster. Fiend Without a Face is actually still good to watch, haven't seen it in years but it still works as Sci-Fi horror, the brain creatures as shown were state of the art special effects at the time. If you make allowance for that and some other dumb science concepts (blowing up the control room of a nuclear reactor has never struck me as a good way to shut the reactor down) this film is a pretty good "Bad Movie"
 
The girl getting out of the shower wrapped in just towel is pretty good also.

That'sa good one. I talked to someone in a rental store, and they said they had several people rent it, thinking it was a sequil to "Jack Frost", the family movie with Michael Keaton, and were disturbed by the error.

I assume you've seen the first Jack Frost, Killer Mutant Snowman? The Sheriff's kid was the creepiest character in the whole film.

I love the part where he's dropping the icycles on the girl and keeps missing, then just sayd "F-it" and trops the huge anvil on her. Classic. .

If you mean in the theater I honestly have no idea what the first bad movie I saw might have been.  If I had to guess it was probably something by Disney.  (Wasn't there some horribly 'comedy' with a flatulent hound dog that they put out in the 80s?)  As for TV and video. .

Contenders for the first bad movie friends showed me would probably be something by Ed Wood or John Waters.  There may have been others, probably involving singing cowboys or Ilsa, but those two directors movies can scar you for life!   Wink

However the first bad movie I remember getting together with others at a friends house to watch was probably CREATURE.  IIRC I was the only one who liked that movie.  I thought it was hilarious.

However the first bad movie I recall intentionally seeking out on video was likely  FLESH GORDON.

First bad movie(which I knew was regarded as one) in a theatre:
"Terror in the midnight sun"  My dad took me when I was too young to understand how bad it was. I remember him pointing out and explaining all the moviemistakes, as I probably wouldn't have reflected upon them myself - tender as my mind were. TongueOut The town we saw it in (Gällivare) is actually located not too far from the filming location: Abisko.

First bad movie(which I didn't know was one) in a theatre: "Carnosaur"! I remember that I actually thought it was a bit scary and dark, but was totally amped because it had dinosaurs in it!
(I actually watched "Delicatessen" before this, but I consider/ed that a good movie. TeddyR)

I was about nine years old when all this happened (ca 1991).

I was exposed to "King Kong vs Godzilla" at a very tender age, and to "Firewalker" in 1986, at age 9.

Still, I consider my first b-movie an obscure slasher the clerk at the rental store fervently endored. It was among my very first rentals, and it involved a group of people spending the nigh together in a shopping mall and being attacked by surveillance robots. I think it was the first time I was 100% aware of the "so-bad-it's-good" appeal of certain movies, and also a first time in having fun at the expense of the movie I was watching.

Due to the horrifying nature of this film, no one will be admitted to the theatre.

That is "Chopping Mall!"  Matt Steenburg wrote a review for it years ago.  I have a soft spot for that movie as well.
