Chupacabra Terror
Draniac
Blood Sabbath
Reptillian
Ankle Biters
Cyborg Cop II
Memory Run
Octopus I and II
Crocodile
Spiders
US Seals
One Million Years AC/DC & The Mighty Gorga (dpk)
The Ed Wood Box Set
The Herschel Gordon Lewis Box Set
Tarkan the Viking
Brain Slasher
For Your Height Only/Challenge of the Tiger
Turkish Star Wars
Manster


...and of course:

Point Break
XXX
Crossroads
Cocktail
Top Gun
Fifth Element
Roadhouse

I love RAD! If you have it on DVD then you got a bootleg. RAD is a great movie if you were into freestyle and BMX in general. It had some of the best freestylers ever. Eddie Fiola, R.L. Osbourne, Mike Dominguez, Brian Blyther, Ron Wilkerson to name a few. Back then there was one guy who could do the backflip(his name escapes me right now). In 1985-86 that was a big deal. That dude even joined the circus with that one trick.

Well I thought it was a bootleg too, but the DVD actually has the title painted on like "real" DVDs.

The karate movie I couldn't think of earlier is called "Bruce LeRoy"

Not hard to do in this day and age. Have you seen the Rifftrax DVD Covers thread yet? I am huge fan of Rad and I wait for the day there is a legit release.

Actually its called "the Last Dragon."  Classic, but almost too aware of how stupid it is.

So mrbasehart, JohnnyFrag, and JoshWay.  Of these movies you guys listed are there any that stand out on your lists as the best of the best?  And no I'm not talking about the Eric Roberts movie.

JohnnFrag, I bought that same collection of bad movies, but have yet to actually watch one of them.  I find it hard to say, "I've got an hour and a half to waste I think I'll watch "Dr. Tarr's Torture Dungeon."

mrbasehart, Cyborg Cop II sounds pretty awesome.  How is that one?

A "friend" gave it to me years ago.  It's released by a company called NuImage and they do all sorts of crap like it. 

I remember a lot of explosions and possibly the cheapest "cyborg" ever, but it's hard to recall details.

"A fancy, loner cop loses his partner to a crazed terrorist during a hostage rescue. He settles for the terrorist going to Death Row in jail. What Jack doesn't know is that the terrorist will be taken and turned into a cyborg for the "Anti-Terrorist Group". When the Cyborg "Spartacus" wakes up accidentally, he kills the scientists and their guests, then goes to set things up for a Cyborg Empire. Only Jack and a few friends know how to stop him."

Y'know, it rings no bells whatsoever.  I'm gonna have to rewatch it.

As for best bad movies, I've posted before that Ankle Biters was just so bad, it was fantastic.  I urge EVERYONE that's interested in really z-grade cinema to check it out.  Memory Run is pretty impressive too, featuring a macho ex-con who finds himself in the body of Karen Duffy, only to fall in love with the handsome doctor at the end.  All very creepy.

Oh, I missed out a couple from my collection, namely two "proper" movies Traci Lords attempted in the early 90's.  A Time to Die with a suprisingly charismatic Jeff Conaway and Ice with an unsurprisingly uncharismatic Zach Galligan.  Both are terrible.

Ator the Fighting Eagle is awesome, awesome in this instance meaning terrible. It would have worked on MST just as well as Cave Dwellers. Kingdom of the Spiders is great because you've got 70's cheeze PLUS Shatner.

Another one I just remembered that belongs in any bad movie collection is "Howling III: The Marsupials".

An hour and half? Most of these barely scrape an hour. As bad as they are, at least they are short.
The one surpising one in that set is Virus. Glenn Ford, Chuck Conners, George Kennedy, Robert Vaughn, and Henry Silva (whose skin is WAY too tight for his skull.) It's kind of like The Stand, except for no one goes to Colorado, no one is the Devil and no one spells Tom as M-O-O-N. But it does have 100% less Parker Lewis, so it's not all bad.
Some goober lets loose a genetic engineered virus, and everyone dies except a multi-national consortium house in Antarctica. George Kennedy is left in charge of what's left of the world. Women are made to mate with the men via an appointment system (there are 8 women to like 400+ men, so I guess they are really tired!) A slabhead and a vaugely Japanese guy set off to save the world.

Actually it is fairly decent.

One that even I found un-watchable: Medusa. I watched a few minutes of it but had to turn it off when George Hamilton showed up at a party as a drunk Elvis Impersonator. I am not making this up.

One fun one (not in that set) is Day of the Dead 2: Contagium  (yes they couldn't even spell contagion right.)
That is a recent one that just reeks of stank.

Older one that is terrible: The Boneyard. Phyllis Diller and Norman Fell in their magum opus of horror. Includes a giant poodle monster. But also has some convincing dead, bloasted guys.


Anyone have Trog?

Grapes? I hate grapes, I can't stand grapes. I loathe grapes. All kinds of grapes. I hate green grapes and I hate purple grapes. I hate grapes with seeds, I hate grapes without seeds. I hate them peeled and nonpeeled. I hate them in bunches, one at a time and in small groups of twos and threes.

Your description of the Boneyard makes that movie sound vaguely familiar.  Plus its got the late great Norman Fell, so how can you go wrong.  I'll have to look for that one.

JoshWay, I actually own that steam pile of Miles o' Keefe glory called Ator.  Somehow its gotten lost in my good movies apparently...I'll need to rectify that.  Ator actually reminded me of Braveheart in some really bizarre way.  I agree that it is awesome.

I was speaking with my wife about this and she reminded me of one of my favorite goob/bad movies ever. I am ashamed I had forgotten about this one:

The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra

If you have not seen this, please do so forthwith!
It is a recent movie, made in the style of a C grade 50's Roger Corman flick. It is cheesy on purpose. It could be the only truly riff-proof movie. It is hysterical. Sample line of dialog: "Do you realize what this discovery could mean? It could lead to actual scientific advances in the field of science!"
The same people that made this are coming out with a new one (forget the title off the top of my head) but it is going to be the first title in a new line of DVDs called the Ray Harryhausen Present's line or something of that nature. I foresee lots of cheesy stop motion in my future!
Grapes? I hate grapes, I can't stand grapes. I loathe grapes. All kinds of grapes. I hate green grapes and I hate purple grapes. I hate grapes with seeds, I hate grapes without seeds. I hate them peeled and nonpeeled. I hate them in bunches, one at a time and in small groups of twos and threes.

We've been considering buying this set, has anyone seen these movies before? Or even used this set?

I have these. The 3D is really pretty good. It is comparable to the IMAX stuff. One note though: make sure you use a CRT type TV. LCDs do not work as this relies on refresh rates to work. LCDs are just too slow (unless you have a mondo expensive one.)
The movies themselves are pretty coolish. They are short (like an hour or so each.) The real payoff here is to get the bootleg 3D movies off Ebay. Friday the 13th 3D works GREAT! It is perhaps the most technically perfect 3D movie ever made and even on TV with a bootleg copy, stuff comes off the screen. House of Wax is pretty good as well. Jaws 3D, not bad. The other ones (like Metalstorm,Parasite) are so so. But that is because they were only so so when being made.
There are also discs floating around of classics (read public domain) that have been converted to 3D, like Night of the Living Dead and Dementia 13. They are HORRID. The process they use is bad, they are  awate of time and money.

The price listed at your link seems a bit high. You can always find the same set(s) on ebay for around $20 to $30. Search for 3-D and or LCS glasses on ebay to find some.
The set that comes with Zombie Chronicles, Camp Blood etc...  these movies are terrible. SHot on video for around $100 each. Good for a laugh (and netflix even carries a couple of them.) Don't get that set unless you are getting a great deal for the glasses.

PM me if you have any other questions on this. I am an avid 3D fan and have had a few of these systems over the years.
