Well this was an interesting countdown of crap, much of this I didn't know much about, a few of the films I'd seen and quite a few I have in various box sets to watch. The way they've put it together is from clips of the films with narration, some have more time spent on them then others. It's curious why some of the films they chose to have rather large uninteresting info on, yet some of the tales that sound fascinating only get a few seconds of time. None the less, it's a combination of bad horror/exploitation/sci-fi mainly with some other major uh-ohs thrown in. Of course you'll see major flop movies like Ishtar, Leonard Part 6, plus many Edward D. Wood, Jr. which are all expected. They throw in some bad movies that are campy and entertaining like The Killer Shrews, Spider Baby and my personal favorite on the list Bloodsucking Freaks. It's strange though because some films one would expect to be on here aren't, (Manos: The Hands of Fate for example) but it all comes down to personal taste. At least this introduced me to several films I'll never want to see as well as several I've bought that I'm not going to rush to put in the player. It's likely far more entertaining than watching most of those movies plus they don't spoil any (although it may not be possible) for the audience. Entertaining little countdown, nice to see a worst list rather than yet another best list.
