5. Evil Dead II (1987)

"Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn" is a comedy disguised as a blood-soaked shock-a-rama. It looks superficially like a routine horror movie, a vomitorium designed to separate callow teenagers from their lunch. But look a little closer and you'll realize that the movie is a fairly sophisticated satire. Level One viewers will say it's in bad taste. Level Two folks like myself will perceive that it is about bad taste. - Roger Ebert

Evil Dead II is a pretty critically acclaimed film, it's even in the top 500 films in the TSPDT poll, but it remains underrated.

People who added this item 828  Average listal rating (549 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating 6.9 
11. The Devil's Rejects (2005)

There's a sense in which a movie like this can be endured only if you distance yourself from the material and appreciate its manipulation of the genre. It can be seen as dark (very dark) satire. Or, you can just throw up. - Roger Ebert
Mr. Saturn's rating:

People who added this item 351  Average listal rating (190 ratings) 7.7  IMDB Rating 7.3 
12. House (1977)
This video contains gore and creepy images.

Hausu is a critically acclaimed film, but I didn't find it as genius as most people did.

16. Pootie Tang (2001)

If you don't like the scene with Wanda Sykes' character, you probably won't like the movie because that's the funniest part.
Mr. Saturn's rating:

People who added this item 2  Average listal rating (2 ratings) 7  IMDB Rating 6.5 
17. Tomatos Another Day (1930)

A sound parody of silent film acting.

21. Trapped in the Closet: Chapters 1-12 (2005)

An insane and hilariously bad R&B opera where R. Kelly sings every character's lines. At least it's better than Tyler Perry.

MST3K

I plan on seeing a few films.
RiffTrax makes commentaries for movies, and they have a few people who were in MST3K.

The movies are so rarely great art, that if we can't appreciate great trash, there is little reason for us to go. - Pauline Kael


Hilariously bad movies, cult films that aren't critically acclaimed, camp movies, and bad taste films.

Recommendations are appreciated.

I'm not interested in seeing these films:
Battlefield Earth
Showgirls

I'm unsure about watching The Super Mario Bros. Movie.

Manos.......what a film. Watch Troll 2 if you haven't already, and check out Birdemic, it's a tough watch though.

I recommend watching The Room and here's the full movie on YouTube.

Why Dead Alive (Braindead) ?? One of my favourite Horror/Comedy, where Peter Jackson shows his potencial.:-)
Posted: 2 years, 4 months ago at May 15 13:56
Wow! What a list. I have a few suggestions, but I'm not at home, so I'll post them later.
Posted: 2 years, 4 months ago at May 15 17:15
Braindead is great; I included it because it's sort of camp cult movie that's underrated because of its subject matter.
Posted: 2 years, 4 months ago at May 17 19:35
Watch The Room minus the Rifftrax, but add a group of friends and lots of alcohol and you've got an awesome party.

I'd also recommend Samurai Cop and Gymkata.

"Evil Dead 2" was a xerox copy of the first Evil Dead. Go back and watch them both. They're the same movie.
Posted: 1 year, 4 months ago at May 9 1:06
^^^^ whut? Evil Dead and Evil Dead 2 have the same premise but are FAR from the same movie. They differ greatly. And Evil Dead 2 is technically pretty amazing and tremendously impressive.
Posted: 1 year, 1 month ago at Aug 11 17:34
Deadly Prey, The Barbarians, Undefeatble, and Majestic Thunderbolt are essential viewing.
Posted: 1 year, 1 month ago at Aug 11 19:42
I love "The Room." It's so bad that it's good. I recommend going to a midnight screening of it. The crowd there is always a lot of fun.
Posted: 1 year, 1 month ago at Aug 11 20:54
Can you really call Evil Dead II a "bad movie" when the movie is intentionally set up to be that way?

One of my favorite bad movies is Coneheads. Yeah, I know it's bad but I still like the damn thing.

I know it's really 'deliberate camp' (Susan Sontag's term).
