Teenagers from outer space, it came with the game destroy all humans and you unlocked it after you beat the game, and now my film viewing life has never been the same.

Haha. I remember that.  My friend had that game and we were trying to watch the movie after he beat it.  Well, we had about four minutes left in the movie, and he accidentally hit a button on the controller and it reset the whole movie from the beginning.  So we then just found the ending on Youtube.  TeddyR

Hercules with Lou Ferrigno

One of the greatest accidentally hilarious films to watch when you've got a few brewskis down the hatch.

Gee, I can't pinpoint one specific B-movie that started it all. I guess I just grew up on an (un)healthy but probably typicaly 80s diet of Godzilla-style monster movies, A and B sci-fi movies, horror and splatter movies of all sorts, various fantasy flicks and, of course, 70s and 80s TV shows like the original Battlestar Galactica, Knightrider, the He-Man and G.I. Joe animated series.

That's a tough one to answer for me. Although I had seen plenty of B-movies before this, it was "It Came From Hollywood" that started me down the so-bad-it's-good appreciation road, and that's not a film, but a tribute to many of the best classic B's.

I've watched b-movies ever since I was an infant staring at the tube, but I will say that Freddy Krueger and Chucky were my favorite "monsters" as a young lad. However, my all time favorites to this very day are the Godzilla films, I owned everyone on VHS and hope to someday buy them all on DVD (the tapes are well watched, hence, well aged)

It's so tough to pinpoint one movie in particular, but if I had to I would have to pick THE STUFF.

I saw part of this movie when I was maybe 7 years old, as one of those sleepy Sunday afternoon time-filler movies that the stations not affiliated with the major networks used to put on.  I remembered bits and pieces of it but years later I started to wonder if I didn't dream the whole thing up. 

I told my buddy about it when we were about 13 and we started to go on a quest to find this movie.  This was before the days of widespread internet so I didn't have that as a resource.  We scoured all of the Blockbusters and other main video places in the county, with no luck.  I really believed I had made it up at this point.

Then we found this little hole-in-the-wall video store - I told the clerk about it and he recognized it right away, and lo and behold they had a copy.  The VHS box cover had an old cracked picture of white goo eating some guy's face.  Jackpot.

It probably has to do with the long-running circuit that had been running in my head that could finally complete itself and the wave of relief I felt when I realized I hadn't dreamed it up.  That cemented the experience and the genre in my head and ever since it's been an official obsession of mine.

Larry Cohen is still my favorite bad movie director, along with Cronenberg of course.

Plan 9 and the Godzilla sequels, especially Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla.. I always loved King Caesar, and how he jogs into battle. I always thought that was brilliant.

I'm thinking it was probably Them or the Crawling Eye, I was a kid and I don't remember which I saw first. But the crawling Eye scared the sh*t out of me.
