See post below for reference.

[First - a HUGE thank you to Frank from Ohio for the Rollins DVDs. Super, man. Just SUPER!]

So, what movies are so, so very bad that you just have to watch them every time they are on. Or worse yet, own the DVD/videos of, just for the sheer novelty of it?

I think you tend to get more horror movies listed in answer to this question than any other genre, but any kind of film is acceptable.

Killer Klowns From Outer Space: Best bad horror movie EVER.

Update: People, people! Big Trouble in Little China in NO WAY qualifies as a bad movie!

Michele asks "what movies are so, so very bad that you just have to watch them every time they are on"? Thanks to Ted Turner, there is a steady diet of trash on TV. However, some of it is "good" [Read More]


Road House!


Hubris was too modest, so I'll do it: Roadhouse!

Last American Virgin.

The protaganist looks like a young, dorky Ronald Reagan.

And I happen to LOVE Killer Klowns. I protest it being in a guilty pleasure category. Cotton candy gun??!! Come ON!!

I was/am really fond of The Pirate Movie. No, really. That may be something to send to the secrets postcard dude.

Killer Klowns was indeed a terribly fun movie, but for me the Leprechaun series outdoes all.

Have yet to see Leprechaun in the Hood but own all the others.


Oh, it sort of has a plot, but is intelligent (?) enough to discard it and get back to what we really want to see, guys beating the shit out of each other!

I don't actually own the DVD. I do happen to have three Ed Wood movies in my pitiful collection. Glen or Glenda is a great way to get rid of unwanted guests.

I see Roadhouse is already up there ... my husband cannot pass it by. I'm strangely drawn to Dune.

"Attack of the Killer Tomatoes". If you've seen it, you'll really think "Mars Attacks" is lame.

Does 'Point Break' count?

Oops. I've got the Point Break, too.

Urban Cowboy

Big Trouble In Little China


Yes! Point Break! (The great thing about Point Break is the uniting of the Duh stars from two decades.)

But c'mon - Big Trouble in Little China? Totally believable cinematic masterpiece!

The unchallenged champion: "Zardoz", with Sean Connery.

Followed closely by "Showgirls", then "Plan 9 from Outer Space"

Okay then. 'Point Break' it is. I do own the DVD (one of those $5.50 specials at Wal-Mart) and must watch for awhile whenever it is on the tube.

Best part? When Angelo Pappas (Gary Busey) misses the Ex-Presidents going into the bank because he's too busy reading 'Calvin and Hobbes.'

Pinocchio's Revenge.

Beastmaster. Man, oh man: Beastmaster.

Ice Pirates!
Night of the Living Dead

what Rollins DVD's?

I'm not sure if it's been mentioned, but "Slumber Party Masacre"... worst/best horror movie ever.

Anything directed by Ed Wood, or anything with Joe Don Baker in it (except for the JDB movies that were really good).

You really have to LOOK for this one because I don't think it's ever been on television:

Liquid Sky.

Pretentious yet intriguing in that, "Is this a really bad movie or a really good movie that's over my head?" sort of way.

Leprechaun, because I have the hots for Jennifer Aniston (even when she was pudgy) and I don't care who knows it.

Solar Crisis, without a doubt.

Oh heck, everything 'directed' by Alan Smithee is best filed under the category "Novelty Trash," but Solar Crisis had one hardened bad movie watcher of my acquaintance whimpering "make it stop!" within the first fifteen minutes.

Plan 9 is, at it's very least, fun to watch.

Existenz and Ravenous

That classic "Night of the Living Dead" was not a bad movie! Romero took his topic seriously and despite some crappy acting the movie works. Just for that I hope zombies invade your house and raid your fridge.

Guilty pleasure in the undead genre: "Idle Hands".

Corman's: "Bucket of Blood"

The allure of being a beat artiste does strange things to men's souls.

The original "Rollerball", if only to see the cameo by Farah Fawcett before Charie's Angels made her famous.

I'm not too big on the horror genre - cause I'm a big scairedy cat. Most of the bad movies that are so bad I "have" to watch them anyway are chick flicks. I actually own all of these:

The Cutting Edge with D.B. Sweeney.

Boys on the Side with Drew Barrymore & Whoopie Goldberg

Now and Then with Demi Moore and Melanie Griffith

(I can't believe I'm admitting to this in public. I'm so ashamed.)

"Frankenhooker" A tale of sluts and bolts.

I'm still a sucker for the Godzilla and Bruce Lee flicks.

Shakes the Clown

The Citizen Kane of alcoholic clown movies.

The action, horror, sci-fi classic "Silent Rage" (1982)starring Chuck Norris.

Toxic Avenger

Agree with Beastmaster--also Conan the Barbarian and Red Sonya for the same vibe. Steven Seagal is ridiculous in anything, but I'll watch Under Seige whenever it's on. (And I have seen Frankenhooker)

Starship Troopers. i secretly love this movie, but i just tell people that i watch it only to see Dina Meyer's tits.

Death Ship
Worst movie ever made. Period.

George Kennedy, Richard Crenna, Nick Mancuso, Sally Ann Howes, directed by Alvin Rakoff.

You have to see it to believe it.

I should have added:

You can see a review of "Death Ship" at:


Any Puppet Master movie...scratch that, any Full Moon production.

Any Sci-Fi Channel Original production.

And yeah, any Troma production.

3 swings of the sickle right there.

Dune (the Lynch version), Howard the Duck, and The Goonies. I like Starship Troopers so much that I own both the Laserdisc and the DVD. There's no irony involved here--I genuinely like Starship Troopers.

I just (re)rented, (re)watched and (re)loved Tank Girl. I, apparently, have no shame.

OK. This one is really obscure, but I'm putting it in because one of my best friends is in it.

I Was a Teenage Zombie

It's actually a spoof on the genre and there are some pretty funny scenes. But it's still pretty bad:)

If any of you are/were crazy enough to watch this one, I grew up with the guy who gets his face ripped off in the car.

Funny, I hadn't even thought about this one in forever and I'm flipping through the channels and my jaw dropped when I got to the IFC channel and my friend is having a rather DEEP facial peel.

"Bring It On" and "You Got Served" come to mind...

Timmer - You either don't have cable or don't watch the right channels. SciFi loves Liquid Sky.

Starship Troopers is an awesome movie. Even the version without the shower scene. I marvel at the scene were the bug has a leg through Denise Richards shoulder to keep her from getting away.

Plan 9 from Outer Space was a 2 a.m. staple when I was attending conventiovs and could stay awake. Usually billed as "The Two o'Clock Turkey."

Anything by Full Moon (once the best of the breed)

Cut (super cheesy movie with Molly Ringwald - can't help but watch it everytime it's on)

Conan the Barbarian is a great movie! Now, 'Conan the Destroyer'... any movie that ****s up Bruce Lee's classic Enter The Dragon mirror scene so badly must be on the list.

I relegate all my bad movie habits to my massive collection of MST3K tapes. Just finished watching Hercules and Hercules Unchained. Am now working on Daddy-O. I love Sandra Giles. Imagine being thought of as a third-rate Mamie Van Doren. Yikes!

The Devil's Advocate, not only did I watch it last night "On Demand" for the upteenth time, I own it on tape and DVD.

Pacino is sooo cheesey, the entire cast is just a hair off...too much, too little...whatever.

The confrontation scene is so over the top that's it's worth the set up. btw- you think Connie Neilsen had a body double?

I feel so young, I don't know any of these movies.

My vote goes to Barbershop

My vote goes to Barbershop

Them's fightin' words.

Is it even possible for a movie featuring Cedric the Entertainer to be bad?

I can't tear myself away from Maid to Order whenever it's on. Now that has no redeeming value. None.


Body Parts (Abso-fucking-lutely fucking hys-TER-ical!)

Steven Segal IS "Out for Justice"!

And the wife adds




And one that some might consider bad is "Blind Fury", but hopefully everyone here recognizes that for the Rutger Hauer masterpiece that it is.

"Flash Gordon" is mine. Every time it comes on, I'm helpless to stop it from sucking me in.
Flash! Aaa-aaah!
I'm all about "Popeye" too.
