Are you planning on submitting a script for Friday the 13th Part 6?

Yup

Yup
May want to PM Hor-Riff-ic Productions then and see if they are still accepting scripts. I'm not sure exactly what stage they're in on it (Gary threatens me with sharp things when I keep asking him). I thought it'd be out by now, but life gets in the way and all.
I'm sure they would appreciate any submissions they can get.

10. Soilent Green
I really don't think I saw that one suggested and for the sake of busting a classic in the chops this one has it coming.

9. Masters of the Universe
Dolf... banana hammock... Grey Skull... unfortunate little person in an uncomfortable looking costume... banana hammock.

8. I, Frankenstein
A terrible film with pretty a decent special effects budget. Awful concept, gargoyles vs. Frankenstein vs. demons. Plus... the protagonist actually says "I, Frankenstein"

7. Barbarella: Queen of Outer-space
The ridiculously slow reveal of Jane Fonda as the heroine for the opening credits is deserving of nomination alone. Add in a super hairy anti-hero/kidnapper and potential rapist, a super "not gay" blind angel hero and really cheesy 70s almost-porn style and its a shoe in.

6. Monster Squad
80s gold from my beloved childhood full of pain. Kids perving, cussing, and kicking were-wolves in the nards.

5. Six String Samurai
Post apocalyptic ska gold. Super annoying kid that only seems to holler monosyllabicly to communicate any emotion, and a guitar with a katana and scabbard duct-taped to it.

4. The Number 23
Jim Carry does his best to be a dramatic actor. Doesn't quite get there.

3. THX-1138
Just oodles of silence and nonsensical gibbering to fill in with riffing to break up the monotony of antiseptic settings and bald everyone.

2. The Extended LotR versions of the films
Just feeling greedy.

1. Iron Sky
Saw this one recently. Moon Nazis... *drops microphone and walks away*
"Excuse me! Gotta drain the super dragon!"

RoninFox did a great riff of that.
While the iRiff section is down, you can buy it through Gumroad here:

Here's a sample:

Hor-Riff-ic Productions did a great riff of this.
Unfortunately they aren't selling on Gumroad. But hopefully the iRiff section will be up soon.

Ten descending in order I'd most like to see riffed:

1. Boxing Helena
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eWPfoTH3iXc

In a world where set-dressers can write their own ticket...
...and featuring the product-placement velocicycle...
at number 2:
Brainstorm (1983)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NNiZP2G-nEM
(just bumped this to two, having started watching it again on Youtube, and the digital-pantyliner intro alone sees it rise five places (can't quite beat out Bill Paxton as, leather-trousered, black-mesh t-shirted, ego-strutting boy-toy in Boxing Helena. But seriously what could beat that?)

3. Rad (1987) ...granny-airs are his signature...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3bu6haxJbdk
Rad's BMX dance number... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aaWsVHv5dGc

4. I walked with a zombie (1943)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W6SWz27OXac

I Walked with a Zombie Intro.:

Betsy Connel: It all began in such an ordinary way...

Fade to interview:

Intervier: You're single?

Betsy Connell: Yes

Interviewer: Where were you trained?

Betsy Connell: Memorial Hospital here in Ottawa

Interviewer: Now this last question's a little irregular Miss Connell...((...have you ever walked with a zombie?))

5. Five Dolls for an August Moon (1970) "...you'll believe he's portraying a Thunderbirds puppet..."
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oc4uhJiF0JU
(actually also looks pretty stunning on BluRay. Really actually is quite the feast for the eyes).

6. Patrick (1978)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mckNPYADMkQ
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6jb0yab5GpU

7. Phantom of the Paradise (1974)
"a 1974 American musical horror film written and directed by Brian De Palma" - Wikipedia
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2n5qVJEg3qA

...to make it up to ten...

Joint 8th 9th place: Tower of Evil (1972)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uMHhZzWCoxw

Joint 8th 9th place: Attack of the Crab Monsters (1957) (definitely mileage in the eyebrows)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tTVWQ8dxPW0

Maybe... Meteor (1979) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-sgHv0XLlHA

Maybe... Journey to the Far Side of the Sun (1969)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-3YmE5yhKxM

I wouldn't class Birdemic as film, it can only possibly be the propaganda of a doomsday cult that caters exclusively to mentally-retarded people.

Sure... I"ll take a crack at this.

10.  The Extended (and re-vised) LOTR trilogy.  Yes, it's probably selfish of me, but it'd be nice if they had all new jokes for the movies instead of the same jokes with only new ones for the new parts. 

9.  The Hobbit trilogy - Yes... I'm a Tolkien fan.  But these movies were nowhere near as good as LOTR and would probably have more fodder for good riffing.

8.  Deep Blue Sea - Samuel L. Jackson getting eaten by a shark?  LL Cool J spending most of his time talking to a parrot?  What's not to riff?

7.  Mortal Kombat & Mortal Kombat : Annihilation - Topical 90's schlock.  Would probably be a decent seller given the continued popularity of the video game franchise.

6.  Bloodsport - Or really... anything Jean Claude Van Damme has done.  He's gotta have some VOD material by now doesn't he?

5.  The Exorcist - One of the great horror movies of all times really should be brought down a peg.  Also, it does seem rather tame by today's torture-porn standards.

4.  Deep Impact - For a movie about the apocalypse, nothing really happened did it? 

3.  Fear - Mark Wahlberg finger blasts Reese Witherspoon on a roller coaster to a bad cover of a Rolling Stones song?

2.  Backdraft - A Who's Who of a cast in a Who? of a movie. 

1.  Face/Off - Nick Cage and John Travolta in an overacting death match!  Complete with needless explosions, obvious stuntmen, and just a ridiculous plot.  This really should be a live event.

A bit late, but I'm new to the forum. And I only have 7.

1. Troll 2 Live - pleasepleasepleasepleaseomgplease.

2. Howling VII: New Moon Rising - this is one of the most riffable movies I've ever seen, honestly up there with Troll 2, Birdemic etc, and I don't say that about just any movie. Local yokels! Line dancing! Chili! A werewolf... possibly! But mostly local yokels eating bad chili and moodily line dancing.

3. Trick or Treat - Prime 80s cheese. Stars Skippy from Family Ties and features Gene Simmons and Ozzy Osbourne. Would make a great double feature with Rock n Roll Nightmare!

4. Undefeatable - This would be a perfect follow-up to Honor and Glory. Probably the most infamous Cynthia Rothrock movie, with the most ridiculous villain, dialogue and fight scenes ever.

5. Hack O'Lantern - More good old 80s cheese, featuring an evil folksy grandpa! Also, it's called "Hack o'lantern." (Or, the boring alternate "Halloween Night." Gee, I wonder what audience they were trying to get with THAT title!)

6. Dolemite - "Guy from Harlem" is such a classic, we need more Rifftrax blaxploitation!

7. Swamp Zombies!!! - Do not let the title fool you, this is a one-exclamation-point film at best. Maybe half an exclamation point. Also, there are no swamps in this movie. Or editors, or actors. What it DOES have is the greatest, weirdest song set in a vaguely swampish movie since the dead robot song from Swamp of the Ravens! Enjoy. https://youtu.be/X1WHly7VbFY

1.   Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets: A pretty movie with little plot, little character development, and a crappy hero
2.   Raggedy Ann and Andy: One of the tripest movies I have ever seen in my life
3.   Home on the Range: The worst Disney animated movie ever.
4.   A Table for One: This is some weird Michael Rooker film that apparently was supposed to be a comedy
5.   Fat Slags: I feel like I shouldn’t have to explain this one
6.   The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Feel like I shouldn’t have to explain this one either
7.   The True History of Puss 'N Boots: William Shanter tries to sing in this film and it’s awful. The whole film is awful
8.   Welcome to the Space Show: Okay this movie isn’t really awful it’s just a bit weird and I’d like to see if the crew could make any sense of it
9.   Pinocchio in Space: Let’s put a puppet in space. Why not
10.   Jem and the Holograms: I need the guys to riff this movie to hell and back

Riff Raff Theater did a great riff of this:
