actually Lommel's 70's and 80's output isn't entirely awful (entirely being the key word).

I need to watch more 70s movies. I'm sure you're right, you know more about that than I would. I was mostly referring to anything from the last decade. On Netflix Instant if you sort the horror movies by star ratings, out of the top ten WORST, FIVE are Lommel movies.

Re: The awful movie you recently watched

oh I totally agree about Lommel's more recent outings - they are truly awful
- I often wonder what he did with himself in the 90s - he had a long period of inactivity, which obviously didn't help him to improve his uh, "craft "

Re: The awful movie you recently watched

The Naked Witch    boring.. bad acting and they had THE nerve to blur out the nudeness.

Re: The awful movie you recently watched

^ I assume you mean the old Larry Buchanon nonsense. LOL
did you watch the color, or the black and white presentation - it's been released both ways.
not that it really makes much of a difference, I'm sure, but I believe one of those is uncensored.

Watched Angst today and it was fucking terrible. It's hard to mess up a movie about a killer vagina, but they did.

Re: The awful movie you recently watched

ah hell, I assume that's the one from the box set, sus?

I figured it was the 1983 Austrian film about a violent serial killer who gets released from prison and wants to go back.  I've heard that one is compelling and brutal as hell and I've been meaning to check it out forever.

Re: The awful movie you recently watched

Just damn near everything I watch is technically awful. But I love it all. But, I guess the last awful thing I watched was The Dead Pit. I love every second of it though.

Re: The awful movie you recently watched

yeah, even in the worst of offerings I often find something a little endearing.
my love for film as a medium in and of itself tends to make my tolerance for "bad" films higher than most folks' it seems.

Re: The awful movie you recently watched

Bad to me is like, Big Momma's House or Final Destination. I don't know how that shit keeps getting pumped out. I was born in the wrong generation, goddammit.

Re: The awful movie you recently watched

yeah, I suppose I should make a certain distinction, when I say tolerance for bad films I do mean in the Horror and Exploitation genres for the most part - I have no tolerance whatsoever for even mediocre mainstream fare.

Case in point - Final Destination.  sure, it's a shit film when you pick it apart, but it has some cool deaths and moves along nicely IMO - I'd much rather watch that than Big Momma any day. LOL

You made me lol on that one. I know what your saying. A movie would probably suck to someone thats not a genre-fan, but many of use would sit through it and enjoy it. Ha.

Re: The awful movie you recently watched

'The Giant Claw'
Again.  Great movie to fall asleep to.

Re: The awful movie you recently watched

I'll stick to the usual "hoping/expecting something good, but got shit on instead". Birdemic I knew was going to be bad... so bad it's unratable and utterly hilarious.

Recently, I'll toss these turds on the fire:

Hatchet 2 - Man, they did more with a few hundred grand and heart, than they did with a few million and no souls. Such a horrible letdown. Wasn't funny, scary, gory, interesting... just pure shit. Oh Adam, how you disappointed me.

Trick R Treat - Why all the love? Seriously. It was a poor mans Creepshow, and that's being nice. The ONLY decent thing about the flick, was the pumpkinhead mutant midget design. Utter trash.

Skyline - I wasn't expecting "awesome", or even "good", but at least "okay" was on the table. Man... just... oh man, this was bad.

The Traveler - Holy... shit... LOL! "Hey guys, I've got $5,000 to spend of FX! Let's make a movie!" It's gory alright, but just like the recent slew of French Gore Horror, there's NOTHING else there at all. The first 8min are classic. "We drove by here 10min ago and you weren't here. When did you get here?" "Uhm, about 9min ago." derp derp

Wrong Turn 3/Cabin Fever 2 - I'll lump them together in a "wow, something went horribly wrong here" pile. WT3 wasn't even about the mutant hillbillies and CF2 was just awful. Even a pussing dick couldn't save it.

Yeah its the one from the boxset. The one from 1983 sounds awesome though.

Re: The awful movie you recently watched

yeah I snatched it awhile back and have been meaning to give it a watch.
Gaspar Noe has name-checked it several times if that tells you anything  smile

Re: The awful movie you recently watched

I watched Behemoth on Netflix...its one of those "Man Eater" series films...real low budget monster movies with awful CGI and even worse acting...I don't know why I put myself through films like this...it was terrible

Hahaha that's the one that I thought he was referring to as well. I would like to see that one too deady.

Heebie Jeebies...  stay away from that one..   an anthology of stories that sort of tied into each other.. but the main storyline was muddled, acting was terrible and poorly filmed
