What is your favorite poorly-made movie and or director?

...Ed Wood flicks top the list in my view (i.e., Bride of the Monster, Plan 9 from Outer Space), but I think the all-time worst of them all is "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians".

...Your thoughts and opinions, please?

    Easily "The Green Slime" (1968), a Japanese/American co-production about an asteroid headed for Earth, and the adventures of the intrepid men sent to destroy it. Surely the most dated, hilariously bad title song in film history (very psychadelic twangy with atrocious lyrics and whiny singers).......not to mention the aliens in rubber suits with vacuum-cleaner-hoses for arms, spacestations on wires burning in a house.....IN SPACE, WHERE THERE'S NO OXYGEN.....truly terrible in not one, but TWO languages. A must see.

    John Waters' early movies were poorly made and god-awful. So bad they are cult favorites, but not for the easily offended since they are pretty disgusting. His movies would make Ed Wood's film seem like Oscar winners.

    Pink Flamingos and Female Trouble were two that stand out.

    Strange Brew with Bob and Doug McKinsey. All the early Friday the 13th movies. The Warriors. And of course Charlton Heston's The Omega Man

  • Mom and Dad Save The World is a poorly made movie

    Very Poorly

    Clash of the Titans--it was so campy and the acting was not all that great--but I love this movie. The action was done in claymation or stopmotion--I don't know which is which, but it's along the same scale as Jason and the Argonauts, Sinbad, etc.

    That's a tough one. In the vague spirit of the season, 'Jack Frost' - the MST3K one, that's a Finland/Russia co-production, not any of the others - is pretty awful.

    Outside of that, Zardoz is pretty awful. Sean Connery in a loincloth and you *know* drugs were involved in making the movie.

    Top Secret with (a very young) Val Kilmer. Hilariously funny!

    Leprachaun has a soft spot in my heart...not so much the multiple, direct to video sequels...but the original is a hoot.
