Not sure if there's a comparable thread but thought I'd start one anyway.

I've developed quite a liking for movies which are incredibad, so bad they're actually good.

I suppose the classic example in this genre is Tommy Wiseau's "The Room" which has become something of a cult classic among fans of terrible cinema but there are many others..

My favourite director at the minute is Neil Breen. "Fateful Findings" and "Double Down" are both absolute classics but "I Am Here... Now" isn't quite as good/bad. Fateful Findings has literally the greatest ending of any movie in the history of cinema. The full movie is pretty easy to find online these days. It's an absolute must watch.

Fateful Findings:

There's also things like:

Have you listened to "How did this get made" podcast? It's all about these types of movies and it's really entertaining

I was really disappointed to find out that the recent film "Room" wasn't a big budget remake of "the Room".

Anyway, I'll just post "Never Too Young To Die", which features Gene Simmons as a tranny drug baron. and that's not even the best bit about it

It's not quite a big budget remake but there is this:

"The Disaster Artist" was Greg Sestero's book about the making of The Room. Franco and his "This Is The End" buddies decided to run with it.

Franco's "reimaginings" of other people's films are apparently his thing now. First "Interior Leather Bar" (based on lost footage from "Cruising")

I watched "Major League" on Monday night for the first time since in about 25 years.

When I was a kid, I thought it was great. That scene near the end when they play Wild Thing as Ricky Vaughn (Charlie Sheen) was cool as fuck when I 10 or 11.

That bit remainbs untarnished but the rest of it... Jesus, the acting is fucking atrocious.

Still watchable shite though.

I remember finally getting to see the legendary 'Kiss meets the Phantom of the Park' film. An old friend had a DVD converted from an old Philips Lazerdisc. it is shockingly awful, you definitely need it in your life for a good night of drink and comedy.

Mission to Mars. It is a Sci-fi film with fuck-all Science. But it's one of my favourite films to watch for a bit of craic. Great fun.

Another one I'll add to the list is the Stallone 'Judge Dredd' film. So many continuity and editing errors, it is just hysterical, but I love it.


I remember there used to be a Sky channel called 'Bad Movies' and it showed nothing but wall-to-wall 50's-70's 'B' movies. Great craic. There was a 50's or 60's one called 'Behemoth the Sea Monster', the special effects were legendary. A scene involving the monster being sunk by a torpedo, but the explosion genuinely looked it was filmed in a sink full of water, with the tiny 'plop' the water made behind the soundtrack of a nuclear explosion... Epic

The Nostalgia Critic on youtube is great for reviews of these types of films.

Controversial entry, possibly, but 'Road House' should be seen by one and all. It's terrible, let's be honest, but it's still glorious from the first second to the last. Starting out with the standard A-Team setup of a town cowering under the shadow of a seemingly untouchable bully and climaxing in that legendary howl after Swayze rips a henchman's throat out with his bare hands, there's nothing not to like, but it is terrible. It was directed by a man names Rowdy for fuck sake. The music is decent, to be fair, with Jeff Healy and band doing sterling work.

If ye haven't seen Fatal Deviation yet, ye need to line up a few cans and watch it.

The only Irish martial arts film ever made afaik. I was nearly crying start to finish, everything is fucking perfectly awful. There's a car stunt scene where the car flips - that was unintentional but they had to go with it because of the tight budget. Etc.

If we're bringing up Irish films Taffin has to get a mention. Mesmerisingly awful film.

Always loved Roadhouse, if you are gonna include that you will have to include the likes of Hard Target.But i know what your saying.

I know loads but can't think right now.
Troll 2 .
Streetfighter.
Masters Of The Universe.

Recently watched American Ninja thinking it was gonna be one of these kinda films but i actually just loved it, though i'm sure some might regard it as so bad it is good.

I guess Riki Oh you could throw into this category also.

Faust: Love of the Damned is absolutely awful, but i love it!
here is a screenshot from it that kinda somes it up

Or perhaps The Miami Connection which is like watching both at once.
