RT’s regular contributor Michael Adams has a pretty good idea: as part of his new book Showgirls, Teen Wolves and Castro Zombies, he spent an entire year seeking out the greatest atrocities' cinema has ever unleashed, watching more than 400 bad movies in a quest to find the worst film ever made. Following their smash-hit Basic Instinct, director Paul Verboten and writer Joe Esters tried to shock cinema goers with this sensational look at the sleazy world of Las Vegas strips clubs and showgirl casino spectaculars.
They were shocked at Verboten thinking we’d be turned on by Elizabeth Berkley and Kyle Lachlan making love in a neon-lit pool like they’d been set on the spin cycle. After his post- Pulp Fiction comeback, John Travolta made himself a laughingstock in this partial adaptation of his guru L. Ron Hubbard’s sci-fi novel.
Set in the year 3000, a millennium after the Psycho master race invades Earth and enslaves humanity, this has Travolta as a 10-foot-tall alien who gets around in dreadlocks, nose plugs and KISS boots. With Wood indulging his transvestite leanings in the lead role(s) and battling his literal devils, Bela Lugosi as a God-like puppet master, and acres of stock footage with dissonant Rumsfeld-esque narration, this cross-dressing, sex-changing melo-docu-drama is brain-scramblingly weird.
It’s impossible not to be amazed and somehow charmed that he tried to fulfill this ambition with an amateur cast, unrelated footage of his now-dead friend Bela Lugosi, an unconvincing stand-in for the former Dracula star, model-kit flying saucers, a cardboard cemetery, and an airplane cockpit comprised of a couple chairs and a shower curtain… among other celebrated inadequacies. This sequel, from Aussie director Philippe Morey, was shot in Soviet-controlled Prague and is a hilariously bad confection of erotic horror and New Wave “style.” Christopher Lee, years off his blockbuster comeback, stars as an occult investigator who has to take on Sybil Dancing’s werewolf Queen Stigma and her minions.
The cotton-candy special make-up effects, the “acting” of co-stars Red Brown and Annie McEnroe, or the seemingly endlessly repeated electroplating of the theme song by Babel? The story of Colonel Kojak and his Stormtroopers avenging the ‘hood against The Man and then succumbing to corruption suffers the usual exploitation-movie problems in the pacing and production departments, but it’s just too bizarre to ignore.
It features a ham actor assisting a mad scientist involved in the typical revival experiments before he kills the boffin and impersonates him with his “superior” acting skills and a glued-on beard. Instead, the cheapo mogul opted for a puppet on strings, so it appears as if mid-1950s jet pilots and hot Rodgers are being attacked by a mutated Gonzo from The Muppet Show.
Aided and abetted by producer Sam Sherman, Al Adamson carved out an incredibly prolific career as an exploitation filmmaker from 1969 to 1978. Begun in 1971 by Detroit would-be filmmaker George Barry, this oddball horror flick was finished in 1977 but then failed to land any sort of distribution.
Three decades after he started it, Barry discovered by accident that someone had pirated a print of Death Bed and that it had been given an illegal video release in the UK that had resulted in a cult audience. The title says it all, and we get to see the chuckling boudoir centerpiece suck assorted hippies into its golden gastric juices, where they’re efficiently skeletonized.
If Tommy Wise’s The Room is the over-wrought, melodramatic and self-pitying heterosexual camp classic of choice, then Sam Ravish’s Ben & Arthur is its gay equivalent. Where Wise used 35 mm and spent millions to achieve at least some production value, writer-director-producer-star Ravish might as well have shot his story of homosexual persecution and fightback on a cell phone with a budget of about $5.67.
While Jaws: The Revenge, Tentacles and Alkaloids are all worthy so-bad-they’re-amusing sch lockers, this tale of a giant prehistoric shark chowing down on the citizenry takes the piscatorial prize for laugh-out-loud inanity. The late acid casualty Donald G. Jackson and his protégé, the self-styled martial arts Zen master Scott Shaw, crafted this Z -grade rarity out of a passionate belief that there was an audience for surrealist, soft-core sci-fi rollerskating movies co-starring the likes of Frank Stallone, Karen Black and Joe Estévez.
An inexplicable montage of kung-faux, topless bondage, horned demons, skating punks and swordplay carried out across parallel time zones, The Roller Blade Seven makes Eraser head look positively straight-forward. By the standards of later mega-flops, like Cut-throat Island, The Adventures of Pluto Nash or Warren Beatty’s own Town and Country, Ishtar‘s box office wasn’t that shameful.
Thing is, it’s actually not that bad, and pretty funny in parts, not least for Dustin Hoffman playing stud while Beatty takes the role of an insecure schmo. This in-name only sequel to the 1986 horror has a family moving into the town of Nil bog (say it backwards, people, to discover this movie’s original title) and encountering a tribe of little monsters in fright masks and potato sacks who do the radical-vegetarian bidding of a hag whose modus operandi is liquefying her victims into plant goo.
The confluence of talent, where they’d been and where they’d go, from Arnold Schwarzenegger and George Clooney to director Joel Schumacher and writer Akiva Goldman, makes this fascinatingly awful. The production values, like some neon-lit theme park, are astoundingly gauche, but that’s nothing compared to that script, whose clunky chorus comprises Arnie’s clunking out “comically” cold puns as Mr.
This outrageously campy biopic, based on the best -selling biography by Crawford’s daughter Christina, is justifiably famous for its excesses, particularly the “No wire hangers!” scene. This attempt at showing up the seamy underside of the film industry is in itself testament to the overblown excesses of Hollywood before the Easy Rider s and Raging Bull s shook things up.
An organized crime dynasty's aging patriarch transfers control of his clandestine empire to his reluctant son. Two imprisoned men bond over a number of years, finding solace and eventual redemption through acts of common decency.
