Now Accepting Donations For The 50 Worst Movies Ever Made Challenge!

Last night I announced my upcoming descent into 'The 50 Worst Movies Ever Made' (read all about it here) and i'm beginning to think I might need some help with this quest. I only have a few of the 50 movies and there's a bunch of them that aren't even available on Netflix. So, per the idea of Carl from over at I Like Horror Movies, i'm gonna reach out to you guys for a little bit of help. Below you will find the complete list of 'The 50 Worst Movies Ever Made'. If you have any of these films, either on DVD or on VHS, and are willing to part with them in an effort to help me fulfill my sadomasochistic dreams of indulging in the worst movies of all time, I kindly ask you to either leave a comment here or drop me an e-mail at mortis45@aol.com and I will send you the address where they can be sent. These movies all suck pretty badly, so it shouldn't be too hard to part with them! And hey, if you don't want to part with a DVD and just want to burn me a copy instead, that's fine too! So here they are, 'The 50 Worst Movies Ever Made'! The ones I already am in possession of have asterixes next to them....

I can throw a few bucks in a few days..... no moneys till Friday.

Johnny said...

I certaintly appreciate that but i'm not asking for money, just DVD or VHS donations. I'd never ask for money!

OMGSeriously said...

ohhh lol i was confused....i don't hae any of those movies.

Johnny said...

lol again, thanks so much for the offer. You're quite the gracious one!

A.P. Simon said...

You should be able to find quite a plenty of these in one of those '50 Sci-Fi Flicks' packs that places like Half Price Books stocks frequently. They sell for about $19.99, although you could probably find it at Best Buy for $14.99; there's some of these titles included, but not a substantial amount.

- I'm a little dismayed that FRANKENSTEIN CONQUERS THE WORLD has been included on that list. That, in my opinion, is a tad unfair.

But you should probably have high success finding these gems at second hand stores; I've seen a lot of these titles around such places. ROBOT MONSTER has been on DVD for a while, but for all I know it may be discontinued. Same goes for THEY SAVED HITLER'S BRAIN, which was halfway OK. And SANTA CLAUSE CONQUERS THE MARTIANS you can nearly always find at Target in their $1.00 bin paired with something else.

Good luck with this challenge, sir, I look forward to reading your reviews!

Cheers,
A.P. Simon

Quanthor said...

I have 'The Crippled Masters' which I'd be willing to part ways with.

I actually tried turning it in at a used DVD store a few months back and they downright refused the movie lol

Johnny said...

Thanks for the comment. I've got a few of those 50 movie pack sets, which is where the majority of the ones from the list I own come from. It should actually be pretty fun seeking these movies out at second hand shops and such, but I could always use a little help!

Johnny said...

Quanthor, it would be greatly appreciated!

Monkeymanbob said...

I thought Spider-Baby was considered something of a classic?

Monkeymanbob said...

Another thought, some of this movies must be public domain, they must be available on the net for free. I've got Plan 9 knocking around here somewhere, cam free with a last generation X-Box game. It's region 2 though

Johnny said...

Ya I figure a few of them have gotta be public domain. As for Spider Baby, I thought the same thing. I really like that movie and i'm really not sure how it made its way onto this list.

kaiyn said...

Maybe I'm just weird 'cause I liked it, but I can't see how Howard the Duck got on that list. Didn't think Troll was that bad, either.
Good luck with the challenge!

Monkeymanbob said...

This one has Killer Shrews, Eegah - http://www.publicdomaintorrents.com/nshowcat.html?category=scifi

And Plan 9 is here
http://www.publicdomaintorrents.com/nshowcat.html?category=scifi
This site also has Gayniggers from Outer Space, which isn't on your list, but has piqued my interest considerably!
If you want to look for more, then let me know I've fook all to do at work. I don't if it suits your needs to watch them on-line.

Johnny said...

Monkeyman - Thanks so much, really appreciate it. Don't care if I watch them online, on DVD, or on VHS, as long as I get to see them all i'll be happy!

Monkeymanbob said...

Sorry to be a paina nd keep posting, but the Troll thats mentioned, is that the one where the sequel is based on absolutley nothing to do with the original? The Troll I remember was a fun little movie where a Troll slowly takes over an apartment building, Troll 2 on the other hand was dire - just need to clear up the confusion.

Johnny said...

That's the one. Troll 2 is largely considered much worse than Troll, so its kinda odd that Troll is the one they chose for the list.

Monkeymanbob said...

Hmmm, I'm also suprised that The Incredible Melting Man is on there as well, haven't seen it since I was kid but it wasn't all that bad.

Fred [The Wolf] said...

I think this list is flawed. Some of these films should not be on here like TROLL and SPIDER BABY. The only one I have of these is TROLL and you can rent that one pretty easily. Good luck with your challenge. I look forward to watch your sanity decay from this onslaught.

By the way, invite me as your friend on Netflix. Message me on FB if you want.

Cins said...

You can find Xanadu on Hulu.com. I may have a few of these movies but They are my MST3000 versions, not sure if that's cheating or not if you use that *LOL*

The Nobody said...

There are a few movies missing off this list. FROGS and C.H.U.D. These two movies really are stupid.

Johnny said...

Fred - Will do!

Cins - I don't think anybody will hold it against me if I watch the MST versions!

J/Metro said...

Bela Lugosi Meets a Brooklyn Gorilla, Creature From the Haunted Sea, and Killers from Space are all available from the Internet Archive (www.archive.org). Some of the other ones may be as well, if they're in the public domain. The Archive has tons of free, legal movies, TV shows, music and such.

Good luck with your endeavor!

Johnny said...

Thanks for the heads up, sir!

Carl (ILHM) said...

Going to be printing the list out and keeping my eyes peeled for ya Johnny! If you already have NetFlix Spider Baby and several others can be viewed instantly online, if I find any links on youtube Ill email them to you as well. Good hunting!

Johnny said...

Much appreciated Carl! =)

jervaise brooke hamster said...

Johnny, i dont care how bad any of those 50 films may or may not be the`re still a thousand times better than anything the british film industry has ever produced (or could ever dream of producing), in fact any one of them chosen completely at random would still be infinitely better by itself than everything that the british film industry has ever produced put together over the last 120 years. So the next time you`re watching any one of them no matter how murderously bad it might be always remember that american films are still by far the best that the world has to offer (even at their absolute worst).

Johnny said...

I will keep that in mind Jervaise!

Monkeymanbob said...

I'm not going to start an argument with Jervaise, but that possbily the most naive comment I've ever read.
Anyway real reason for posting - http://www.amctv.com/b-movies/
You already be aware of it, but there are some classic b-movies available on this site. Tiles such as Dark Star and Devil Doll - enjoy!

jervaise brooke hamster said...

Hey "Monkeymanbob", could you please explain what you mean by "naive" because i know for a fact that every word i wrote is the absolute truth (no matter how difficult it might be for you to deal with that fact). The (so-called) british film industry is an abomination that must be destroyed with malice-a-fore-thought and extreme prejudice.

Monkeymanbob said...

Ok, how about you start by justifying your statement in regards to "..anything the british film industry has ever produced (or could ever dream of producing), in fact any one of them chosen completely at random would still be infinitely better by itself than everything that the british film industry has ever produced put together over the last 120 years". I'll leave it up to you to convince me that the British film industry is completely without merit

jervaise brooke hamster said...

Sure that was a pretty sweeping statement and i will admit that i have got "ISSUES" with britain in general (not just its film industry). Its just that as far as i`m concerned its always been completely obvious that british films are a laughable, pathetic joke in comparison to the breathtaking magnificence of the hollywood product.

Monkeymanbob said...

Can I ask what these issues with Britain are? Just so that I might get a better understanding. And with this disdain for Britain, why your name is a slightly altered one of an obscure Monty Python (A British institute itself)character? Apologies of course if that's you "actual" name.
I'm curious to what has shaped your view, and I hope you are willing to share.

jervaise brooke hamster said...

What about the fact that for 30 years between 1970 and 2000 british people were denied access to hard-core pornography that their american and european counterparts had free access to during that period, i`d say that makes britain a laughing stock by definition.

Monkeymanbob said...

Erm, no. You can't define a whole nation by what access to hard-core pornography it did or did not have, and it's not as if anybody in UK didn't have access to it. Harrison Marks made a living of churning out British made skin flicks in the 70's. And what does the state of a nations pornography laws have to do with the general quality of it's cinema? And by definition of the quality of British cinema, do you also extend this criticism to British actors, directors and writers?

jervaise brooke hamster said...

I most certainly do, i think the`re all a load of old rubbish. I actually do think you can define an entire nation by what access it did or did not have to hard-core pornography during a specific period, for instance that period between 1970 and 2000 always proved to me that british people were (and perhaps still are to a certain degree) a bunch of sexually repressed morons who allowed themselves to be oppressed by liars, hypocrites, cowards and deceivers who were masquerading as so-called politicians. It was only in the late 90`s that the internet and DVD arrived to finally save british people from the abomination of censorship and from scum like Jack Straw and Mary Whitehouse, otherwise the british "so-called authorities" would probably still be finding ways of denying british people access to the real mccoy, even now. As another example, the only reason those appalling "confession" movies from the 70`s (and many other crappy british films of that type) with robin askwith did so well at the british box office was because the real mccoy was not freely available to the british public at that time, do you really think that anyone would have wasted their time going to see those films if they`d had access to proper hard-core images to jerk-off to in the privacy of where they lived, i dont think so. Lets be honest between 1970 and 2000 britain was a ludicrous joke in virtually every respect.

Monkeymanbob said...

This is where you argument falls down, the U.S. also had strict laws concerning pornography, yet you don't lambaste it with the same vitriol that you do with the U.K. film industry.
Harrison Marks never made the Confessions movies, he directed the hard core porn that you cite was lacking in the U.K. which lead to it having a film industry, and in fact a nation that was a "joke".
And this is all the basis that you present, that anybody British, and by extension anything they produce is "a load of old rubbish". So we can casually dismiss Hitchcock, Attenborough, Coward, Cary Grant, Stan Laurel, Olivier, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and so on, as being rubbish. All because they have a British connection?
If you apply the same thinking that the U.K. is a nation of “of sexually repressed morons", because of old laws, then surely you are applying the same credo to the U.S. because it also, at one time, had similar laws. There is a serious flaw in your reasoning. And if you dislike the country so much, why live there?

jervaise brooke hamster said...

I know that america has also unfortunately always been plagued with the same lies, hypocrisy, sexual repression, and censorship that plagues britain (all of which is derived from the religious nonsense that is still poisoning large areas of U.S. society). The reason i always mention 1970 to 2000 is that hard-core pornography was legalised around the world in the late 60`s and yet for 30 years the british authorities were determined to make sure that it was not (legally) available in "legal" sex shops the way it was everywhere else (thats the key point i`m making here). I`ve never heard of Harrison Marks (probably because his films were not freely and legally available in britain in the 70`s, 80`s, and 90`s the way they should have been). I dont actually live in england but i did spend quite a lot of time there and in the rest of europe during that 30 year period thats why i know what i`m talking about when i make these comparisons. The british film industry as it is at the moment is an affront to world cinema and an insult to the medium of the moving image, maybe some of those names you mentioned did appear in some good films but they were all american made films made with american money and talent, i`m talking about wholly and completely british made films that didn`t (or dont) have any imput (financially or otherwise) from anywhere else and its with regards to those films specifically that british films are the worst in the world.

Monkeymanbob said...

What happened to you to inspire such a hatred?

jervaise brooke hamster said...

Yes, perhaps i am a murderously bitter individual but that doesn`t stop me from being able to tell a good film from a bad one, besides i do love horror movies (except british ones of course) so i cant be all bad.

Monkeymanbob said...

I can't decide if you are serious or a surreal comedy creation. Perhaps you just like a ruck.
I've read other post you've written and you mention Hammer films that you like, and your love of fish and chips and salt and vinger crisps. Plus all the English slang you use. I think you are British, in fact I think you're Ken Russell, he's always moaning about the Brit film industry because nobody wants his films any more, I have to surmise this as you never actually answer any of the questions I've posed

jervaise brooke hamster said...

You mean "horror express" with the breathtaking silvia tortosa (one of my all time favorite films), but that was filmed in november and december of 1971 in spain and had nothing to do with britain.

Monkeymanbob said...

I was refering to your comments on all the Hammer and Amicus movies you enjoyed watching on t.v as a kid. Add to this your appreciation of the comely figure of Madeline Smith, Monty Pyhtonesque monicker, fish and chips and page 3 girls are just some of the reasons I can't take your Brit bashing too seriously.

great list!
