There's just something deeply satisfying about watching a movie that tries so hard to get everything right, fail miserably in every single aspect, to the point of pain. There's no way that you can watch Vanilla Ice try to act in Cool as Ice and not be in tears; or watch Lou Ferrigno tying rubber cobras together while telling them "Hey, be nice!" in Sinbad of the Seven Seas, and not die laughing; and there's no way in hell that you can watch The Room and not wonder "Does it get any worse than this?"
Most of the movies below are so horrible and inept, that they defy all logical explanation, and they're all crazy enjoyable on a level that we can't even begin to explain.
- Not all of these movies are going to be easy find. We've had to watch many of them ourselves on used VHS tapes.
- Amazon is a great place to buy a copy of many of these movies, but as most of them are sold through 3rd party sellers, be sure to read their user reviews to make sure they deliver what they promise, and for a reasonable price.
- You can also watch a lot of these movies on YouTube, even if the quality isn't that great.
- We include the MST3K version of Pod People here, because we can’t find the normal version of the movie to watch, and it’s an A+ episode.
If you truly love Bad Movies, then the movies in our Top Six will give you endless amounts of pleasure... and pain. Start with whichever one you like, but watch them all, as they are truly Bad Movie gems of the highest order.
Keep in mind that no "Best of" list is ever perfect, but merely a solid starting point for anyone looking to watch some great flicks, and in this case, great flicks of a particular type.
*Most of the links go to Amazon so that you can stream or grab yourself a copy of the movies; our review of the movie (when applicable); or in the case of some of the older & more obscure titles, IMDB, because they simply aren't available to stream or purchase.
