    What is your favorite cheezy movie??

    "Bucket of Blood" "Little Shop of Horrors" (original B&W) American International SCI-FI. Karloff, Price.
    Let's hear 'em, or am I the only one left?
  2. Anything on Mystery Science Theater 3000, of which Corman has had a few.

    oh, and any Hammer film - especially the Dr. Phibes series with Vincent Price.

    Did you ever see Vincent Price in "The Conquerer Worm"? A very off witch trials kindo' flick.

    Ed Woods movies! Plan 9 is the best worst movie ever. And anything with a giant gorilla or lizard.

    "The Brain from Planet Arous" with John Agar.
    "Bucket of Blood" by Roger Corman
    "The Tingler" with Vincent Price
    "Dementia 17" I think a Roger Corman
    "Creature from The Black Lagoon" in 3D.
    "The Thing with 2 Heads" with Rosie Greer
    "Vampire Men of the Lost Planet" SOOOO CHEEEZY! The smoke from the spaceship rises when flying in outer space!

    FWIW I just watched Creature From The Haunted Sea and laughed harder than I have at any of Will Ferrell's movies.

    Ditto, Little Shop Of Horrors. ("Starring Jack Nicholson" my a$$! :D That's OK, the small part he did play was worth the price of admission. And the plant made me laugh.)

    I worked on a Corman film years ago - 'Streetwalkin', starring Melissa Leo, Julie Newmar and Antonio Fargas.
    I have a polaroid picture of Julie in her streetwalking costume (Red bustier, panties garter belt, stockings and heels) She was very nice, but kind of nuts.
    I spent a few hours talking to Roger one night, and he is a very sophisticated, urbane man, not really what you'd expect.

    Ha ha, I always love that! A sure sign of maximum cheese!
    Vincent Price was a genius. No one else can make me laugh and shiver at the same time!
    King Kong vs Godzilla, baby! I was just watching the original Godzilla with Raymond Burr on a 20-year-old VHS tape last week. He was Steve Martin before Steve Martin was Steve Martin!

    I miss the Movies Til Dawn channel that they used to have in L.A. They used to show all those great old movies...

    I love the total bad-ness of these kinds of flicks. There's no heavy trips, or even heavy-brutal horror. It's more or less a laugh at the whole thing. Thank goodness Amazon has a few of these available.

    Sort of like that POP song one likes but is shy about admitting it?

    I never get tired of hearing Shatner's Lucy And The Sky With Diamonds or Nimoy singing If I Had A Hammer. :D
