On your search for the “best of the worst movies” have you ever come across something extremely bizarre? Im talking Manos level or worse.
I have learned that mst3k movies can sometimes be bad, but look like Oscar contenders compared to the likes of such trash as Suburban Sasquatch, or Blood Shack.
I was introduced to Forbidden Zone one Halloween night.
Quite the array of randomness, featuring Tattoo from Fantasy Island, Danny Elfman as Satan (along with the rest of Oingo Boingo), and quite a bit gratuitous nudity. Also, it’s a musical that takes place in “The Sixth Dimension”.
APE…a south korean/american production. it’s a king kong rip off and it has basically a guy in a rented gorilla costume. at one point you can see the cuff of the arm sleeve and i think you can also see the actors shoes…it has the mom from the TV show growing pains in it…just a grade z film.
I endorse “Forbidden Zone,” “The Apple,” and “Ice Cream Bunny.”
I’ll add “The Godmonster of Indian Flats,” “Blood Freak,” any random Godfrey Ho movie with “ninja” in the title, “Glen or Glenda,” “Black Devil Doll from Hell” and “Tales from the Quadead Zone,” “Night Train to Terror,” “Maniac” (1934), “Blood Diner,” and pretty much anything by Doris Wishman (especially “Bad Girls Go to Hell” and “Indecent Desires.”)
And, on a whole 'nother level, “After Last Season.”
And this one I attended a special premiere of. I don’t know how much of a release it got afterwards.
Dr. Otto and the Riddle of the Gloom Beam
“Starring” Jim Varney in a non-Ernest role (though the character cameos in what appears to be a hastily added intro), this movie plays out like a game of exquisite corpse in the hands of a group of cinematography undergrads. Neither avant-garde nor inept, it’s avant-inept.
