  1. Might be the best worst movie ever
  2. I was forced to watch this as a child and it is just terrible. This is an 80's movie about a boy who is dormant for ten years and must readjust to this new life with a magical UFO. Please watch this, i need to know, how did this get made

    Megaforce (1982)

    I remember liking this movie as a kid but looking back it was pretty awful. Dallas: Rank? Why ain't nobody got a rank in Megaforce. 'Cept the Commander, but we all call him Hunter.
  4. Please talk about The Last American Virgin, let me try to convince why. The 1980's seem to be where all the work that feminists had done up to that point was completely forgotten by the female generation that hit 18 at that time. Not only were boobs the motivation for the entire decade, but so was the butt. The Last American Virgin is the pinnacle of the sex comedy. It has boobs, butt, sexual harassment, female deviants, abortion, friendship, enemyship, and more set backs for gender equality that seems okay to me. And by the end of the film it stops being a comedy and becomes cineamatic gold. There might be some hyperbole and incorrect sentence structure in my explanation, but i'm trying to portray how perfect this film would be for yous guys and people to nit pick and try and find out, "how did this get commissioned and filmed and released and remembered?" Thank you for your time, that guy from gelsons.

    Raw Force (1982)

    Bo-bo Charles Bronson Bo-bo Bruce Lee Bo-bo...Hitler?! Raw Force (aka Kung Fu Cannibals) is one of the craziest and most thoroughly entertaining exploitation films ever made. It concerns a group of martial artists from the "Burbank Kung Fu Club" who are taking a pleasure cruise to the mysterious Warriors Island, fabled to house the souls of dead martial artists who have lost their honor. Little do they now that a group of slave traders, lead by a man who looks like a chubby Adolf Hitler is in business with the monks of Warriors Island, selling them kidnapped women in exchange for jade. And once he finds out about their cruise's destination, he can't allow them to make it there. This movie is absolute lunacy from beginning to end. It starts out promising an adventure story, but soon turns into an action brawler when there's a Roadhouse-esque bar fight, then turns into a bizarre sex comedy for about 20mins until it segues into a jarringly brutal siege on the cruise ship by fake Hitler's cronies who look like they were rejected from 'The Warriors' movie because they couldn't all agree on a theme for their gang. Finally our main characters make it to Warriors Island for a final showdown with the Hitler gang, come cannibal monks, and an army of zombie ninja and samurai. I've never seen a true exploitation film covered on HDTGM before and it's understandable why. They're usually too easy targets, have too much boring filler between their awesome moments, and are sometimes hard to track down for viewing. But I think Raw Force is a special exception. The film at only 86 min in length is entertaining from start to finish. No boring moments. Even the filler is hilarious. There are so many bonkers moments in this movie, definitely enough to discuss for a full episode. There is dialogue and line delivery so bizarre and out-of-left-field that it breaks your brain. There are light-hearted attempts at comedy followed by scenes of brutal violence. Loads of casual racism and misogyny. And what appears to be a 16 year old kid made up to look like a balding, curly-haired, middle-aged biker (?). Seriously. Watch the trailer, track down this film, and tell the HDTGM crew how incredible it is. Trailer: https://www.youtube....h?v=ju27nZAeqjg

    High Spirits (1988)

    Here is the trailer When Peter Plunkett's Irish castle turned hotel is about to be repossesed, he decides to spice up the attraction a bit for the 'Yanks' by having his staff pretend to haunt the castle. The trouble begins when a busload of American tourists arrive - along with some real ghosts. Among the tourists are married couple Jack and Sharon. Sharon's father holds the mortgage on Castle Plunkett, so she's hoping to debunk the ghosts. Jack, on the other hand, after meeting pretty ghost Mary, is very eager to believe. Can there be love between a human and ghost? Jack and Mary are going to try and find out. It's on YouTube
  9. There is absolutely nothing else to say about this.

    Krull (1983)

    Imperial Stormtroopers invade a Dungeons and Dragons-themed wedding, Liam Neeson multiclasses as a Barbarian/Polygamist, men are murdered with wobbly rubber spikes, and not even the polystyrene rocks are safe. As a testament to the film's overall production philosophy, the female lead (played by a British actress) was re-dubbed by an American actress in post. The original actress didn't know this was happening until the studio informed her after the fact. Apply that level of flippancy to nearly every aspect of film making, and you might wind up with Krull. According to Wikipedia, that bastion of truth, "The film made over $16.5 million domestically,failing to bring back its reported budget of over $45–50 million. However, it has gained a cult following over the years since its release." You can watch it on Amazon Instant or even pick up the DVD that features cast and crew commentary that might make you want to open a vein. Here's . Enjoy! Or don't!
  11. Please do an episode of a movie i loved in the 80's The Last Dragon. Where the main character is called Bruce Leeroy and it has an awesome 80's soundtrack. The only caveat is you will love the movie too much to hate or will you. You can see it for free on crackle.com http://www.crackle.com/c/The_Last_Dragon/The_Last_Dragon/2460332

    Miami Connection (1987)

    I just saw this trailer over the weekend and I thought this gem would make a great episode! It was actually made in the 80's but it was never released in America until now. It comes out next Tuesday and they are releasing it on not only dvd and bluray, but also VHS!!! Here's the trailer: what do you guys think?
  13. Manatee

    Demons (1985)

    A truly fantastic film. The actors all seem to have learned their lines phonetically but compensate for it by making insane, wholly uncharismatic character choices throughout as they are torn apart by demons(?) in a nearly empty movie theater. Whether you're a person that likes a bursting pustule or someone that prefers a close up of teeth falling out, Demons has what you need. Trailer: I found it on Amazon (with the Shudder add-on) but I think it is also available on youtube.

    Band of the Hand (1986)

    Miami Vice meets 21 Jump Street meets... Rambo!?!? So the answer to how this got made is probably: "because the 80s" but nothing brings together so many things wrong with that decade into 90 minutes as this movie. The plot summary does an admirable job of making sense of this mess: "From the creators of Miami Vice comes this action-packed film about five punks who are whipped into shape by a Vietnam vet through a new get-tough juvenile delinquency program. They take the program a step further by forming a vigilante squad to take down the city's top dope dealers." <------That is an accurate description of the plot this movie. Produced by Michael Mann at the height of the success of Miami Vice - the man could do no wrong creatively - or at least that's what the folks who greenlit this thought. Early appearances by Laurence (then Larry) Fishburne, a young James Remar (this is the film he did after leaving Aliens), Stephen Lang, and Lauren Holly in one of her first roles. This movie has everything worthy of a great HDTGM episode, just check out the clothes in this clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PaI0Fzqj3Bc
  15. AKA "Fall Break," this slasher movie was directed by Buddy Cooper, who apparently took a screenwriting class, wrote this script, dropped out of film school, and made it. Apparently, the director and his dad were local celebrities of the town and they were able to work with local police, get extras easily, etc. A kid decides to surprise his dad for his birthday by cleaning his guns for him. He accidentally kills his mom and his dad loses it. Cut to the kid in college, drinking with friends, bored during "fall break," when his estranged father calls him to tell him he needs him to lock up the beach house/condo for winter. The beach cabin is full of hooks and fishing trophies, as well as a framed photo of a guy the dad accidentally killed. They proceed to get drunk and hang out on the beach. They are dumb and horrible and I do not care that they die. The dialog and acting are bad, in ways that range from odd to stupid and infantile. And the theme song to the movie makes it feel like a feel-good 80's teen movie. It is tonally uneven in a way that makes it creepier, but still pretty goofy. I cannot tell if the happy theme song was intended to be ironic or just a tone deaf decision. Did I mention all the characters are awful? Fun fact: the male lead later became a voice actor on Pokemon. I'm not sure which characters. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Mutilator http://imdb.com/title/tt0124014/ Available to watch on Amazon Prime. It's also available on Shudder, which is a great service for both good and bad cult horror movies. Here is the trailer, which features the theme song and some great, very clever dialog ("I've got a bad feeling about this"):

    Hearts of Fire (1987)

    How much more splendor can one movie contain in it's VHS box? Small town girl dreams of making it big in the music industry and finds herself enmeshed in an steamy love triangle with creepy awkward, once great, mentor (played by Nobel Prize Laureate) Bob Dylan, and current 80's superstar, Rupert Everett. One of the greatest performances by the 80's Rock Sensation Fiona....before she really hit it big. Some have said that this movie was so bad that it was what led to the director, Richard Marquand's (Return of the Jedi) untimely death. It was his last movie. Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l5-wWjIwiCA
  17. Did a search of the recommendations forum and can't believe this has not been suggested especially seeing as Death Spa has been done and Chopping Mall has also been suggested. Synopsis: As part of a sorority ritual, pledges and their male companions steal a trophy from a bowling alley; unbeknownst to them, it contains a devilish imp who makes their lives a living Hell. Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/embed/OGKHqlVd2hk Saw this for the first time last week, think it would go down well with HDTGM would love to hear what they think of it

    Weird Science (1985)

    It's Ferris Bueller meets I Dream of Genie but every character is a straight up creep. What other film can boast a car chase, a nuclear missile, a mutant ball monster, Robert Downey Jr. in shorts, and jive talkin' Anthony Micheal Hall. That's right, only Weird Science. This film seems as though it was both written and directed by a twelve year old from the 80s... oh and there's some computers and shit too. Here's the clip(sorry if the link doesn't work I'm new here, you can always copy/paste though).
  19. Discorick

    Silent Rage (1982)

    "Science created him. Now Chuck Norris must destroy him. He's an indestructible man fused with powers beyond comprehension. An unstoppable terror who in one final showdown, will push Chuck Norris to his limits. And beyond" Imagine if Chuck Norris showed up to the set of "Halloween" in 1978, roundhouse kicked John Carpenter, and took over as director for the movie. This would more or less be the product that resulted. In all honesty this movie is a pretty unique blend of 80s slasher horror and your run of the mill action/kung fu movie of the day. Also there are mad scientists, a laughable love-montage, an outrageous bar fight that in no way serves the main plot, and an almost comical number of gratuitous boob shots. More people need to see this movie ASAP. (It's free on Amazon with a Shudder trial or subscription) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0084684/

    Heavenly Bodies (1984)

    The 1984 Canadian-made ripoff of Flashdance centered in the cutthroat world of Jazzercise, which ends with an honest-to-God aerobics marathon. Domestic abuse, bizarre competitions, 80's clothes, and a little somethin' for daddy. Plus, it garnered this great five-star review on Amazon: "There are so many great scenes in the film for example when Dale dances alone in her club after a fight with her beau. You see the mixed emotions of how she's feeling expressed only through her body language. It's really a nice moment." You guys would flip for this, but I think it'll be hard to track down.

    Flying (1986)

    Robin Crew (Olivia d'Abo) is a high school student who used to be a champion gymnast until she suffered a knee injury in the car accident which killed her father. She continues to train on her own and makes her school's gymnastics team, despite outside pressures from her step-father and the other gymnasts. Robin does, however, receive support from her mother and her new boyfriend (Keanu Reeves), as the crucial gymnastics meet approaches. This movie tries really hard to be Dirty Dancing or Flashdance and gets it all wrong in a way that is so right. Young Keanu Reeves. 80s tropes. 80s music. A bobo Tilda Swinton gymnastics coach with a mullet. Dead parents. Terrible writing. Lots and lots of things that make no sense. A highly enjoyable 90 minutes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OrabbRouYyU

    Solarbabies (1986)

    This is a movie I would always see on cable when I was little, and its pure wtf: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0091981/ Trailer: http://youtu.be/0gMfFHmebi0 Mel Brooks executive produced it, it made $1,579,260 at the box office on a budget of $7,500,000, and it ended the directing career of the director. This IMDB review best sums it up: "Are children lovable prisoners of a Nazi-Fetish, post-apocalyptic corporation/government agency that inexplicably decides to profit by running a child-labor camp in the desert? Check. Are the children also forced to play an arena sport involving roller skates? Check. Does a glowing alien ball appear randomly and befriend the children, with no apparent connection to anything else in the film? Check. Do the children breakdance with the glowing alien ball-friend? Check. Does the glowing alien ball require the children to escape the prison and go on a quest? Yep. Do the children "escape" simply by roller-skating away from the "prison" (through a desert)? Um, yes. Does the glowing alien ball-friend require the children to join hands in a ritualized new-age circle of friendship/love in order to achieve its full glowing alien ball powers? You betcha." You guys should totally do it! (It's also on Netflix Instant) Edit: apparently the whole thing is on YouTube as well: http://youtu.be/DtTnmhishW4
  23. Hey guys, I don't post much but I lurk here and over at reddit a lot. I've been working on my new music video for like the last six months and I've hidden a bunch of Earwolf related easter eggs throughout it! I'd like to see if you can spot them all before r/earwolf so I can finally figure where the true Earwolf fans hang out and where all the posers are. I think this is the only way because it I can't afford buying everyone airline tickets to gather for a true no holds barred nude death match. So anyway here it is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=be-YQmtPcik

    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.
