Same criteria as other lists. This list contains movies that are generally considered to be so horrible, they develop a cult following or become praised for their poor quality.


List of movies that will be included (so far):

Night of the Living Dead
Tremors

Not sure about those since they were specifically made to emulate B-movies.

Thought that might be the case, but I figured I'd throw them out there.

Night of the Living Dead has to be #1. Not sure about anything after that.

I've been thinking about NOTLD in regards to the greatest horror film list and I was thinking that it tops pretty much everything in terms of its Cultural Impact.

The whole idea of zombies as being breaindead has entered the cultural conscience the way no other concept from any other film has. Everybody knows the idea of a zombie being a slow-walking braindead being. The word and idea of zombie has entered the lexicon to such an extent that pretty much everyone in the Western world understands that idea and regularly call people a "zombie" based on them being really sluggish or tired or gormless. To a lesser extent the idea of flesh eating creatures has also worked its way into popular culture. And it all comes from that one film that a few freinds made on a really low budget one summer. Pretty impressive.

Not sure if it can really be called a "B movie" unless it's so bad it's good. Essentially, think of anything Ed Wood ever did, and realize that's essentially what kind of movies should be on this list.

That's a list of "so bad their good films"

A B-Movie is a production company term which literally comes from the production company giving it a second tier in terms of importance and budget, which is why they're all low budget and NOTLD definitely was one.

Oh okay then. Then yeah, that should probably be #1.

Can someone please change the title of this thread to reflect the "So-bad-it's-good" theme?

Yeah, fair enough, a So Bad their Good film list would be awesome.

At times though it's hard to divulge between so bad they're good films and deliberatly so bad their good films.

I mean something like Big Trouble in Little China is clearly meant to be bad.

There's also the "attempting-to-be-so-bad-they-are-good-films-that-turn-out-to-be-just-plain-bad". Machete and Grindhouse fit this definition.

In no particular order, here are some movies I think should be included:
Troll 2


Seriously? :confused: That one was really bad, even on the B-movie level, and usually gets called as 'one of the worst movies ever made'. It also has quite a small amount of cult fans, I think. (The Youtube-clip raised it popularity, though)

That's exactly why it should be on here, probably in the Top 2. Have you seen the conventions people go to for that movie? They treat George Hardy (the father) like a rockstar.

Someone should still do a "Greatest B-Movies" list, though. For that, I could see something like Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn at #1.

Yeah I agree. Do you want to start that list?
