Mannequin (1987)

It's been a long time (and a lot of bad movies) between reviews, but I was inspired last night after watching 1987's offering, Mannequin.
Within the first few minutes of a white blonde American english-speaking ancient Egyptian travelling through time to find love into a animated opening sequence, I knew I was in for something special.

Little Miss Magic (1998)

Well, I actually don't know what to say about this. And I couldn't find any clips of it on YouTube so I feel I'm hardly going to do it justice, but wow. One fateful day at a second hand store I found a "family movie pack", of 10 seemingly low-budget, straight to DVD films that looked like an absolute treasure trove.

The New Adventures Of Pippi Longstocking (1988)

I'm gonna start straight out by saying that for a movie I loved as a child, I really did not enjoy this film as an adult in 2016 and I wholeheartedly apologise to my parents for making them repeatedly hire the VHS. Even the opening theme song is annoying.

THE ROOM (2003)

I think it's official that Tommy Wiseau's 2003 film 'The Room' is the official "Shit Cinema" title holder. There's no point even going over, everyone just has to experience it.

ed (1996)

Now if there's anything the 90's film industry loved to do, it was to mismatch people with monkeys for a hilarity-filled series of mishaps. This film does that and more. Just when you think its on the verge of being the shittest movie you've ever sat through, BAM, the hits just keep coming.

mac and me (1988)

1988's 'Mac And Me' fullfilled the promise of being one of the "worst films ever made", as well as being a complete rip-off of E.T The Extra Terrestrial, and apparently a thinly veiled advertisement for McDonalds restaurant and Coca-Cola

Hercules in New York (1970)

I don't even know where to begin on this one, honestly. You just have to see this film. Those of you that know me know that I am somewhat of a 'shit' connoisseur, and even I was just absolutely dumbfounded at this one. Let's begin

santa claws (2014)

With the festive season once again imminent, I decided to purchase a collection of Christmas-themed crap, this being one of them. Mostly because cats. So while gathered around on Christmas day, what better thing to do than talk to eachother but put on a film and gather round the television for another shit cinema masterpiece - Santa Claws
