    Campy movies are traditionally defined as motion pictures that are so bad they’re good. That’s not always the case, though, as some films are deliberate examples of camp thanks to daring costumes, bold subject matter, or just damned amusing dialogue. John Waters is a perfect example of a director who intentionally sprinkles his movies with plenty of camp.

    The following list is dedicated to 10 great examples of campy movies, from cultural icons like Priscilla, Queen of the Desert to little-known gems such as Frankenstein Island. But any way you slice it, camp films will both delight and amuse, leaving you with a greater understanding of why the guys from Mystery Science Theater 3000 started their whole shtick in the first place.

    Take a look at these...

    Road House

    Mommie Dearest

    Valley of the Dolls

    Polyester

    Showgirls

    Batman and Robin

    The Fifth Element

    The Faculty

    Killer CKlowns From Outer Space

    The Evil Dead
