Votes: 3,508 | Gross: $7.61M

Someone lost a bet and had to write a screenplay that combined 1. Ninjas 2. Aerobics 3. Possession/Exorcism 4. Set in Phoenix AZ. and I'll be damned if it didn't turn out too bad at all.

Votes: 1,046

The most enjoyable Invisible man movie in many a year. The entire female cast will get naked at one point. About 47 times more fun than Hollow Man. A suitable companion to Maniac (1980) perhaps?

Votes: 224,249 | Gross: $107.33M

"Ice to be here." It was real bad, but at least it was real fun and bad (and oh so gay), and it didn't have Jim Carrey. I love Batman, but sometimes the whole dark Dark Knight thing gets a little too carried away

Director: Sergio Martino | Stars: Michael Sopkiw, Valentine Monnier, George Eastman, Anna Kanakis

Votes: 2,604

The "Best" Italian ripoff of Escape from New York/Road Warrior. It has manly men, fertile women, cyborgs and a pretty good pace. I prefer this to the original, sometimes.

PG-13 | 90 min | Action, Adventure, Horror

King Kong goes Hong Kong as a giant Himalayan beast tries to save a sexy Russia Tarzanette from a sleazy show-biz promoter. The action, locations set in India, and interracial romance made ... See full summary »

Not Rated | 80 min | Action, Thriller

A man seeks revenge after a biker gang murders his family.

Director: Paul Grau | Stars: José Gras, Laura Premica, Andrea Albani, Peter Saunders

Votes: 610

Crazy in a weirdly casual way. A sublime dubbing job adds a whole new level to the movie. Madly sexual and violently amoral best describes the "hero". Penises everywhere and he drives a really cool Vette.

35. H.O.T.S. (1979)

R | 98 min | Comedy

College exploitation film focusing on the wild escapades of the women of H.O.T.S. Sorority. The antics include but are certainly not limited to a wet t-shirt contest, a sky-diving episode, ... See full summary »

Italian Science Fiction, I love those words. Crazy movie, it features a blonde Franco Nero alien Jesus. John Huston as the babysitter? Shelly Winters slapping an evil little girl! Basketball! Birds of Prey! and all with an awesomely cheesy synth pop soundtrack.

37. Ninja: The Final Duel (1986)

Votes: 2,463 | Gross: $1.93M

So much shirtless Wesley Crusher. OMG pedo heaven! Stupid people who ignore throbbing skin growths? What happens when chickens go evil? Just enough Italian madness makes a bad movie a cheesy masterpiece. Was John Schneider's part reduced, because his role makes no sense?

Not Rated | 70 min | Horror

A family gets lost on the road and stumbles upon a hidden, underground, devil-worshiping cult led by the fearsome Master and his servant Torgo.

Director: Harold P. Warren | Stars: Tom Neyman, John Reynolds, Diane Adelson, Harold P. Warren

Votes: 33,990

A silly plot with some very bad casting and acting. The voice acting and dubbing was hysterically wrong and the music totally inappropriate. Manos has an epic stache and a great robe. It plays like a color silent movie where the music and words were thought up after it was filmed. I loved every minute of this movie. Genius.

41. Tarkan and the Blood of the Vikings (1971)
