My Favorite Turkeys with High IMDb Ratings

by psychotronicbeatnik | created - 13 Nov 2015 | updated - 08 Aug 2018 | Public

These are turkeys that didn't make it on my Favorite list because their rating on IMDb was too high (to qualify for the November Turkey Challenge a film's rating must be 4.9 or less). Rating be stuffed - these flicks are delicious butterballs. In alphabetical order.
