CHEESE LOOKS ON IN
DESPAIR BUT ALSO WITH
AN ERECTION

So-bad-it's-good is an acquired taste, but if you have that taste, then you've opened up a giant, largely untapped vein of incredible comedies. In some cases, that vein has some accidentally surrealist and strangely artistic movies in it as well, but this thread's primarily here for the awkward line delivery, massive plot holes, bizarre stories, and poo poo soundtracks. Let's get the classics out of the way:


At this point, I'd be shocked if a single goon didn't know about The Room. It has some of the most bizarre pacing and performances you can find, not to mention the dialogue. A story of love, loss, and two (count 'em!) dispassionate and mildly off-putting sex scenes, "The Room" is a modern classic.


You haven't seen this? OH MY GOOOOOOOOD. Just watch this. There are no trolls in Troll 2. Watch this.

And now that we've got the two most obvious choices out of the way (although Plan 9 From Outer Space deserves a mention,) Here's one that I recently discovered thanks to Red Letter Media:


The Russian Terminator, which is very clearly originally titled The Russian Ninja, is just kind of fascinating: a number of the actors don't seem to know english, and are just reading lines phonetically. It features a nearly incoherent plot that manages to be easily followed simply because it trudges forward using time-worn film conventions. It's soundtrack is the most TERRIBLE 80's SYNTH thing you've ever heard, and it's so relentless there's only about 3-4 minutes of silence in the entire film at most.

It also features the best sweater in all of movie wardrobe history. You'll know it when you see it.

There is a movie called Contamination 7, also known as Troll 3. I've seen it and I have no clue what it is about.

Edit: Forgot one of my all time favorites: Vicious Lips. Its about a futuristic girl rock band in space. Every single scene has no relation to the previous scene. If you try to follow the plot you will have an aneurism.

Aw, son of a bitch!

Battlefield Earth was the first time I watched and movie and went "this is...BAD! Why am I wasting my time". The best way I can describe this movie is to paraphrase what Roger Ebert said when he called it bad in a hostile kind of way. The movie seems to make a deliberate and conscious effort to ensure the audience finds no enjoyment in the film by denying cohesion or logic. I think I'll use this scene to illustrate. The sound for some reason is out of sync in this video; don't know if it's the clip or if the movie was like that (it's been a while) but it's purely a visual thing and you'll know it when you see it.

Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter: A good favorite. Jesus partners with a Luchador to take down lesbian vampires.

Nightmare City: A balls-to-the-wall violent zombie movie. Crazy poo poo starts very quickly and doesn't let up.

Hard Rock Zombies: Zombies, Rock and Roll, and Hitler.

Rock 'n' Roll Nightmare: Metal band versus hell.

Intercessor: Another Rock 'n' Roll Nightmare: Unlike Rock 'n' Roll Nightmare, this movie is unbelievably terrible. It's a must watch though just to see how bad a movie can be. And it makes the original Rock 'n' Roll Nightmare look like loving gold by comparison. I can only hope the third movie in the trilogy ends up being made.

Science Crazed



You've never seen anything like it. I promise you.

Was filmed in the late 80s in Canada, but didn't get VHS release until the 90s - and with good reason. It's bad on an epic scale, with scenes that run 5-10 minutes of people just staring at each other. A crazed scientist creates a "fiend" that walks and walks and walks.. everyone is dubbed, and there's more padding than content.

I've been trying to track down the director, as this thing deserves serious rediscovery as a cult item.

The whole thing is out there on YouTube (there's no official post-VHS release), but this clip will give you some idea of what you're in for.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JKnraPgmBlw

And then there's

Hip Hop Locos

For my money, the worst film ever made. I'm not talking Ed Wood or Tommy Wiseau or BEST WORST MOVIE level. I'm talking completely unwatchable, and that's why it's so fascinating.

Two Latino rappers go on a crime spree to support their developing music career. That's the entire plot. There's an eight minute scene of a character getting choked while another guy just screams "CHOKE HIM! CHOKE THAT MOTHERFUCKER!" over and over again.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CwH_VUtxcNo

And then there's the work of Todd Sheets. Nightmare Asylum, Goblin, Zombie Rampage. All of it gold.

90 minutes of Cage staring at objects when he should be acting, shouting about things being burnt, punching and pointing guns at women, and this is where the infamous BEEEEEEEEEEEES meme came from. The Rifftrax is really funny, but the movie is just poo poo from beginning to end. It tries to be a horror movie, but just ends up being a comedy, and then a chore to sit through.

My favourite bad movie of all time is Deadly Prey. Colonel Hogan is training mercenaries by getting them to hunt the deadliest prey in "the depths of a steaming jungle."

One day they kidnap the wrong dude and end up with Mike Danton, a killing machine trained by Colonel Hogan himself.

Godfrey Ho films are a special kind of bad. I always liked Ninja Squad for them berating a main character for not being able to get a job because "All he has are his ninja skills." but Ninja Terminator is great for menacing crabs and Garfield telephones.

Sure, we've all heard of Asylum films, but have you seen 2012: Ice Age? If not, please do, it's on Netflix. This movie has so much stuff that will make you pause and go "that's not how it works!" along with incredibly bad CGI and just plain briliant performances from everyone. It is definitely a fun film to watch and is not so bad that you won't even enjoy it.

I don't think the movies are on netflix anymore but everyone should also try to see the Trancers series. It's absolute Grade-A action movie cheese that gets weirder and weirder as it goes. Tim Thomerson (who is one of the best bad actors I've seen) plays Jack Deth, the cop with the greatest name ever. Here's the trailer to the second movie. It spoils the whole thing basically, though. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u6YTPF5Tnl4

Miami Connection is in a class of its own. Movies like The Room and Birdemic are funny movies to riff on, but Miami Connection will have you in stitches with absolutely no accompaniment.

Similar to Troll 2, I think the largest contributor to this film's insanity is that the script was written by a man with a very, very loose grasp of the English language. It makes every scene of dialogue completely surreal as the actors deliver these absolutely batshit lines with as much earnestness as they can muster.

I was lucky enough to see a screening of this movie where its creator, Y.K. Kim, came out to speak beforehand. He's actually a very cool guy, and in his defense he seems completely aware of what a hilariously terrible movie he's made, which is more than can be said of a lot of bad filmmakers.

Watch it with your buddies and you'll be quoting it endlessly.

I'm shocked no one has mentioned Showgirls.

When my best friend and I were 13 or so, Titanic had just come out and like every other preteen girl we were obsessed with it. She asked her parents to buy it for her for Christmas. Titanic being sold out everywhere, her parents figured she wouldn't be able to tell the difference as long as the movie had a boat in it so they picked up this masterpiece from the bargain bin:

My buddy told me she cried when she opened it. It is one of the stupidest and most absurd movies I've ever seen. One scene even features Jim Cumming as a tobacco chewing cupcake. The special effects are also spectacularly low-rent. It all worked out though because this movie went on to become the backdrop to many of our sessions throughout high school.

New Adventures In Mom Strength

My personal anti-favourite was a thing called Satan's Storybook which I happened to rent on video way back in 1990. It was an attempt at a horror anthology movie with a framing story, sort of Creepshow-ish, I guess. I instantly formed a (completely wrong) theory that the movie was supposed to be a cheap porno, but the director had found Jesus the night before (probably while being drunk and/or high and watching a TV preacher) and decided to make a "scare them straight" horror movie instead, using the talent and funds he had at hand. I later found out that the only professional actor involved was, in fact, a porn star (Ginger Lynn Allen) trying to break into mainstream movies. This was so very much not the movie to do that with. There was some bullshit about a good ninja dressed in white trying to prevent the birth of the Anti-Christ or some crap like that. gently caress, it's been over 20 years, and I'm still wasting brain cells remembering that this movie even existed.

Computer Beach Party has it all. Using the good ol' "Uncle's beach house plot #12" They have to throw a party to save the beach house from unsavory developers looking for buried treasure. The two protagonists (nerdy guy and wise cracking frat guy) use a computer to invite hotties to the party. However, this was 1986-87 so the idea was a little ahead of its time.

"Everything we have here is ours now."

The dialogue is ghastly. The dialogue, if memory serves is all dubbed. The actual plot accounts for only about 25-30 minutes, the remaining 45 minutes is taken up by montages of beach scenes, riding around in a jeep and chicks in bikinis dancing. The soundtrack is entirely made up of horrible HORRIBLE hair metal music by the band PANTHER. DOZENS of Panther songs. This is one long video for a hair metal band nobody had ever heard of before or since.

I'm supposed to be sleeping so I'll keep this short.
Y'all need to be educated about the ultimate micro-genre: shot-on-video sleaze horror. Most movies of this type were made in the late 80s-early 90s, right when camcorders were coming into the norm. All of them are no-budget and made by amateurs. Think along the lines of American Movie except with less talent and lower production values.

The absolute kings of this genre were the Polonia brothers, a pair of dorky weirdos with no shame and awesome glasses. Their first effort, and by far my favorite, is Splatter Farm:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xB6AjkkG5s0
Famous for reveling in its taboos and basically being incredible.

Another standout SOV film hails from Canada. Made by two gross friends (who also star, Things is a phenomenal evil-ants-gone-wild movie and homage to Tony Iommi. Here's the full trailer:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PiqSuC8KkNU
Things has an amazing hypnotic quality to it. The music is so poorly inserted, and the acting and editing are so off-kilter that it kind of sucks you in. Watch it drunk, as loud as possible, with people trying to sleep in the room.

Bright as the sun.

It's not quite on the level of The Room or Birdemic, but one of my favorite terrible movies is Iron Horsemen. It's just really bizzarre. It's a Finnish film, shot entirely in Finland, which is supposed to take place in 1960s California (which looks nothing like Finland) about a biker named Bad Trip being chased by his former gang, who are cannibals or something. The actors appear to be speaking a mixture of English and Finnish with about half of them dubbed over. I guess it's supposed to be a parody, but it's not really funny at all which leaves you wondering which aspects of it are meant to be taken seriously. Also, there are several scenes that are clearly supposed to have background music which are just completely silent. There's even music listed in the credits. Apparently they just pressed the DVD without any actual music.

Also, Jim Jarmusch is in it for some reason.

If you want to be alternately entertained and bewildered then Iron Horsemen is probably for you.
