    The Willies (1990)

    Yeah, it's basically a feature length "Are You Afraid of the Dark?".

    ...with Doug Benson on as the guest, to reminisce about his experience on the set of this masterpiece. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-jzRO_Mj57A http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0103268/

    Strays

    I've seen some bad movies, but this one takes the fuckin' taco. It's a made for television movie from 1991, starring Timothy Busfield and Kathleen Quinlan. It centers on a family moving into an old house, not realizing it is infested by feral cats. That's right, domestic cats are the threat in this "horror" film. Strays(not to be confused with the 1997 film of the same name, which is written by,directed by, and starring a young Vin Diesel, not kidding) is so ridiculous it's actually a pretty fun watch. You can watch this shitfest in it's entirety on youtube. Also, it was directed by the DP of Jaws: The Revenge, Short Circuit 2, and Fletch Lives. Here's the Vin Diesel one too https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UcBnNcSpt0c

    The Boogens (1981)

    Jesus this movie is fucking terrible. I seriously wonder if they just forgot they were making a monster movie until the first day of shooting, so they just went to the local dollar store and bought some frog hand puppets. The writer really seems to have a knack for coming up with great titles, having penned such classics as; "Alien Zone", "Fatal Instinct", and my favorite "Edge of Honor" starring Corey Feldman. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0082094/?ref_=nm_flmg_wr_10 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SE0QZMrD424

    Mean Guns (1997)

    I saw this in a video store when I was 10, I remember thinking that was the worst movie title I'd ever heard. I still stand by this.

    The Believers

    This little 80's gem stars Martin Sheen as a recently widowed psychiatrist in New York City. He discovers a cult, that believes in child sacrifice, is after his son. It was written by Mark Frost, co-creator and writer of Twin Peaks, and writer of both Fantastic Four part 1&2. This movie features one of the oddest cold open's I've ever seen, in which, Sheen's wife meets a grisly dairy-based demise. In the scene, Sheen's character spills a carton of milk on the kitchen floor. His wife tells him to shower and she'll clean it up. As she cleans, her son points out that the coffee maker is going haywire. When she reaches over to turn it off, she is violently electrocuted in front of her son, while standing in a puddle of milk. That's right, milk-trocution! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bgkQpPKxkoM There's also offensive racial stereotypes, mutilated cats, and sweet voodoo cult action. Robert Loggia and Jimmy Smits costar. P.S. Sorry about the lame dubbing on the clip. It's the only one on youtube. Still very funny.

    The Burning (1981)

    I'm glad to see there are more fans of this trashy 80's masterpiece on the boards. I believe they're doing "Death Spa"( )for this coming Halloween episode, but, maybe next year.

    Boat Trip (2002)

    Agreed, I think we're onto something here, gentlemen. Cuba Gooding Jr. is a real untapped resource for the show. There's already a post for "Chill Factor", another gem. Man, this guy really shit the bed career-wise.

    Boat Trip (2002)

    Very true, it was straight to DVD from there on out. This and Snow Dogs would be the double feature from hell.

    Boat Trip (2002)

    I remember having to sit through this when I was 13 and thinking it was one of the dumbest goddamn movies ever. That has only intensified upon further viewing. Here's a quote from Roger Ebert's review, it's spot on. "Boat Trip" arrives preceded by publicity saying many homosexuals have been outraged by the film. Now that it's in theaters, everybody else has a chance to join them. Not that the film is outrageous. That would be asking too much. It is dim-witted, unfunny, too shallow to be offensive, and way too conventional to use all of those people standing around in the background wearing leather and chains and waiting hopefully for their cues. This is a movie made for nobody, about nothing."

    Boat Trip (2002)

    About as subtle as a fart at a funeral, they were clearly trying to cash in on the Farrelly brothers comedies of the late 90's. Enjoy a clip featuring everyone's favorite Bond, Roger Moore.

    True Identity

    That's awesome. I'm actually kind of jealous. I would've loved to have seen this by myself in an empty theater when it came out. I just saw it the other day, I'm still trying to rationalize it. There's so much crazy shit to talk about with this one. It would be a great episode.

    True Identity

    "In order to escape from the mob, an African-American man must disguise himself as a white man." This synopsis doesn't do justice to how insanely bad this movie is. It's completely ridiculous from the get-go. Frank "Skeletor" Langella plays the villain, a producer/ mobster who reveals his criminal ties to our lead, Miles("comedian" Lenny Henry), during a turbulent flight. The plane lands, and Miles is afraid for his life. Naturally, Miles seeks help from a make-up artist friend to disguise him as a white guy. Well, wouldn't you know it, Miles ends up being mistaken for the hitman that is supposed to kill him. Miles then must assume a parade of various identities to keep up the ruse. A lot of familiar actors show up, James Earl Jones, Michael Mckean, and JT walsh. Also, Lenny Henry was apparently signed to a three picture deal with Disney. Clearly, that didn't come to fruition as this was a massive bomb. This would be an awesome double feature with either "Soul Man"(also featuring James Earl Jones) or "White Chicks". Here's the trailer http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0103128/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_73

    Hollywood Homicide (2003)

    The interrogation scene, where the director let Harrison Ford "improvise", was really hard to sit through. I like how they shoehorned in Master P as a misguided attempt to reach a younger audience. According to Imdb, John Travolta and Joseph Gordon Levitt were originally slated to star. I really wish we could have had both versions. Also, it was written as a drama, but changed to a comedy at the insistence of Suge Knight. I'm not making this shit up. There's plenty of cinematic feces to sift through with this trainwreck of a movie.
