Favorite “bad” movie no one’s heard of?

One of my more recent favorites that I only watched earlier this year would have to be Champagne and Bullets. Written/directed by and starring John De Hart and featuring songs written and performed by John De Hart. Also featuring Wings Hauser who I am not at all convinced knew he was in a movie. I wish that I had words to accurately describe this movie. I’ll just let this clip from it speak for itself.

Roger Corman’s Gas-s-s-s is mostly forgotten and that’s too bad, because it’s amazing.

Instant Qualification unlocked. At the very least this should land in the Rifftrax catalogue.

As I was watching the movie I kept thinking about how badly I would love to see Rifftrax do their thing with it. I think its a bit too risque for the likes of MST3K without some editing and nothing needs to be cut from this masterpiece of modern cinema.

It has a strong Rifftrax vibe. Their film curation is markedly different than MST3K’s.

It would be a perfect fit for the RIfftrax guys. I would honestly love to see it be one of their Rifftrax Live events, but that’s just a dream of mine.

You’re not a complete human being if you haven’t seen it.

One of my all time favorite movies is pretty obscure (sort of) it’s the middle film of a trilogy that ends with The Green Slime. It’s got it all; futuristic Jetsons style cities and cars, space shenanigans, holograms, mutants, swinging 60s babes, a hot-headed square jawed two-fisted hero and a slimy evil mastermind who’s out to create his own race of fused humans (!?)

It’s a total blast but it doesn’t take itself too seriously so it might not be great riffing material…

Did I mention flamethrower rayguns?

John Glover, woot! :+1:

Beautiful film with two lead actors bereft of acting talent and utterly lacking in any chemistry whatsoever. They actually would have been better off computer generated as well.

A staple on TV kids of a certain age will doubtless recall.

Geteven! Best of the Worst: Parole Violators, Future Force, and Geteven - YouTube

An early “Best of the Worst” and crucial to the “black tank top” theory of vanity film projects.

Saw it. Forgot it immediately.

Macbeth 3000.

Which is a decent effort for what is a glorified student film.

We superstitious theatre types would prefer if you referred to it as “The Scottish Play 3K”.

The Sleeping Car, a very bad and weird horror film about, obstencibly, a haunted train car converted into a little bungalow. But the only thing the evil spirit seems to haunt is the sofa bed. Also the last scene is the hero walking up “it was just a dream” style only to be in bed next to the ghost and… why is there a blood stain in his crotch area?

I also remember the trailer for a movie on the video we rented which had a lot of nudity and the tagline “Falling in love… WITH EVIL!”

I remember that movie being on heavy Showtime rotation when it came out. I’m surprised Joe Bob didn’t get to this one.

I saw this on The Movie Channel’s Splatterday on Saturday double features when they first started. Busey, Lamas and David “not Keith David” Keith are in this.

He wasn’t working at the time or…well, hell, I don’t know really. By 2007, approximately 40,000 horror movies were being made every year. Who can say what he might have covered had the high sheriffs of TNT and TMC not had their heads positioned posteriorly?

I was talking about Sleeping Car so he was on TMC at the time.

Oh. Oh! Are you sure he didn’t? It seems like he got every other David Naughton and Jeff Conaway movie–and this has both?!
