I keep watching for it, when I turn on the TV. At least, I would remember that it was mentioned here if I were using the guide and saw it come on. Let me know if you notice it is coming on, since these days I spend more time on the computer than in front of the TV! (I must have missed that post from early this year where you did this very thing!)

As a kid I thought it was hilarious. Its a spoof movie of the zorro movies. Like Airplane was a spoof of all those airport disaster movies.

All the way to the present day! I do need to catch that Behemoth movie. Behemoth is one of my favorite Biblical words, anyway.
Actually, since I was working from memory, I seem to have gotten my Dracula quote wrong:

Renfield: "Flies? Flies? Poor puny things! Who wants to eat flies?"

Martin: "You do, you loony!"

Renfield: "Not when I can get nice fat spiders!"

Martin: "All right, have it your own way."

Night of the Lepus just came on TCM. Doubt I will watch it, but I will leave it on in the other room, smoke a pipe, and post in here for an hour or so before bed. Talk about baaad movies! Janet Leigh's in it, and Rory Calhoun (star of one of my other favorite bad movies, Motel Hell), and lots of giant, very badly filmed killer bunny rabbits. Nice eco theme to this one, à la Kingdom of the Spiders, Soylent Green, or Black Sheep, and I've been reading about rabbits lately anyway. This movie, really, is just a hoot. The camera "technique" used to achieve the "effect" of the "giant" bunnies is so ridiculously juvenile...

Damn, I wish I didn't have to work tomorrow!

I'm going to look for a bad movie to watch while I eat Mexican. Maybe a giant Gila monster that eats...Mexicans?

There we go, Night of the Living Dead, that'll do. Good for the appetite, anyway!

One I saw for the first time in years recently that was really bad was Howard the Duck, but I'll probably see it again. It passes that "so bad it's good" threshold.

Just watched the last half of Commando (featuring AHH-nuld) last night.

You could just say it was an ordinary bad movie, but I think it may really qualify for capital "B" Bad status. The action and violence is SO cartoonish and over-the-top, the one-liners so awful, the villain so preposterous that I think it should be viwed almost as more of a comedy, along the lines of Army of Darkness or something, than an action movie.

I mean, I nearly wet my little swine shorts, I LOL-d so hard.

Legion last night with my brother, and now he is just beginning the drive back to Michigan. :cry: Right up my alley with the story, but some amazingly slow parts and embarrasingly bad dialogue and delivery. Still, fun special effects.

Oh man. I actually did catch that one a few months ago on an all night TV binge. I don't remember much, but do remember being entertained and amused in that oh-so-fun bad movies way!
