Title: trashbat.film
Post by: pancreas on October 30, 2018, 11:13:11 PM
Apologies if there's already been a thread on this.

Bref. Getting friends over. Want to watch absolute shite like The Room so you can talk over it and revel in its disgrace. But we've all seen that.

Can't decide between a John Waters film—which will no doubt horrify them to buggery, because they haven't seen anything like it—or a new recommendation that I have yet to watch called Samurai Cop.

So that's

Samurai Cop. (https://youtu.be/R6OoZNdAQuA)

Samurai Cop looks ace!

You couldn't go wrong with a bit a of Plan 9 From Outer Space (or any other Ed Wood film) and Troll 2 has yet to be mentioned is seconded, but I suspect these are already well known.

I can recommend Patrick Swayze vehicle (with four spare tyres in the boot) Road House (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Ikfz-S6Tjo) for a combination of fun and complete confusion as to how so much money could be spent on such a turkey. Adult Swim's Squidbillies has an episode that is a tribute to (the shitness of) the film (http://www.adultswim.com/videos/squidbillies/swayze-crazy).

Even more confusing is "Rutger Hauer vehicle" (he appears on the DVD cover and the first minute of the film) Reverend (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XTQWsFo0gk4) (about a vampire reverend) and featuring Emily Booth (from Bits) and Shane Richie as her pimp (doing a terrible English take on Harvey Keitel's pimp in Taxi Driver). "From the comic book of the same name" it claims, but no such comic book ever saw the light of day. Take this more as a warning than a recommendation.

2019: After The Fall Of New York would be my pick here. Lots of celebrated Italian cult movie people involved in a Mad Max 2 rip-off that rather missed the boat, coming along some time after the first wave of Italo-apocalypse flicks. Ideal for chatting over and taking the piss out of. You know when people say "why doesn't anyone remake bad films instead of good ones?" - well, they kind of did here, as it shares more than a little with Children Of Men from two decades later.

And if you like this, follow it up with Rats: Nights Of Terror for more Italian end of the world fun.

Title: Re: trashbat.film
Post by: BlodwynPig on October 31, 2018, 01:21:23 PM
...it's called "Minotaur".

A horror of sorts, it builds on the classic myth of the Minotaur from Greek legend.

Set in an unrevealed period, it features a rumour spreading round an Abyssian town that there is untold wealth to be found in yonder mountains. The story is told to the townsfolk by a robed stranger who is not seen again.

A group of men travel to the mountains and discover a structure they'd never come across before. After several failed attempts to gain access, a young blind boy emerges from the wooded area around the fortress and utters the word "Baal". A door opens upon blackness.

Within the walls, the men discover a labyrinth, cold and unlighted accept for their torches. Several hours pass as they venture deeper into the maze, seeing weird symbols inscribed on the walls. They then begin to hear even stranger sounds echoing in the black. Of course, eventually the minotaur reveals itself in a chaos of violence and rage, sending the men scattering. The "leader" is the only one brave enough to confront the beast but he is forced back and manages to find the exit whilst many of the men are heard perishing at the hands of the minotaur.

Several days later the leader gathers more men, this time armed with weaponry. They once more tentatively seek ingress. "Baal" the leader utters.

Inside they trace the line of corpses of their kinsfolk along maddening paths, finding hidden chambers of wonderful and ghastly figurines. Some of the men are transfixed and remain in the chambers, suffering fates of a varied but always terminal hue.

Eventually only a handful of men find their way to the centre of the maze and again are confronted by the minotaur. It rampages and kills, its immense bulk impervious to the spears and arrows. The leader however, armed with a trident and net, manages to suppress the bull. The three remaining men hack at it with swords, eventually killing the demonic bull.

"At last, we may take our reward" shouts the leader.

At this instant, a door opens in the central plinth and a terrible wind rushes to meet the adventurers.
A voice, deep and ungodly emanates from within.
"Baaaaaaaal"

It takes a LOT of people to make up for the sheer inanity of it.  I've watched it with groups of five or six and there was nary a smirk and it always gets turned off after about twenty minutes.  Always.

Shark Attack 3, on the other hand - wow.

If you like your absolute dogshit films with a heavy soupçon of homoeroticism, have a look at the oeuvre of notorious director David DeCoteau (https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0213983/?ref_=tt_ov_dr), who casts buff blokes with no acting ability and then proceeds to find reasons to get them out of their gear at every opportunity. Bigfoot vs. D. B. Cooper (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3588938/) would be a good place to start.

Seriously lads, Gymkata is amazingly shit.

(https://supercultshow.files.wordpress.com/2018/08/supercult_gymkata_04.gif?w=700)

Quote
The best thing about "Gymkata" is that it takes itself very seriously. Actual men and women worked on this film with no intention of creating a hysterically abominable failure. Yet, despite a premise that fails to produce anything beyond derisive laughter, the project somehow landed financing.

Highlights include: The Khan of Parmistan, a man who looks like Albert Einstein with Carl Levin's comb-over. "The Town of the Crazies," a village of criminally insane people. A man who severs his own hand for no apparent reason in the aforementioned town. A man (also in that town) who wears a cloak with the back cut out to reveal his buttocks. The oft-repeated location, "Karabal, on the Caspian Sea." The title card that lets us know when we've arrived at "Karabal, on the Caspian Sea." Princess Rubali and her odd fascination with cutlery. A man named "Thorg," who has been admired by the hero "since Munich." An actual line of dialogue that refers to "a nightmare in hell." The five punch/kick sound effects that get recycled beyond believability. A character who presumably fell to his death in a gaping, barren canyon only to have his fall "broken by some trees." The random placement of gymnastics apparatuses. The complete lack of resolution to numerous dangling plot points. Kurt Thomas's wardrobe and haircut. The men working at "The Salt Mines," who just poke a large pile of refined salt with hoes. Also, we get the privilege of seeing a shadowy government agent push away a gymnastics groupie who tries to get too close to a post-dismount Kurt Thomas.

If you happen across this movie, you must watch it. "Gymkata" stands as an example of what happens when no one offers a dissenting opinion anywhere in the filmmaking process. This is a technique that was later revealed in Joel Schumacher's "Batman & Robin."

"Gymkata" fulfills every expectation you may have of a film combining gymnastics and ninjitsu. Plenty of gymnastics, plenty of ninjitsu. See it with a friend and enjoy its many failures. All hail "Gymkata!"

An absolute sprawling mess of a film but somehow kept me watching to see what else would go wrong (although I can't remember if I made it to the end). One notable feature was that the animals used in the filming seemed completely at liberty to wander over the set regardless of the plot.

Yeah, there's films out there that deliberately go out of their way to be cheap shite, in a vain attempt to compete with the unwitting genius of some of the films so far listed. I have a film entitled Nazi Zombies on DVD (purchased in Poundland) that attempts this. I'm not finding any links to the film (I know it had another title in some territories) and there's another film called Horrors Of War which was also titled Nazi Zombies on IMDB which is not the pile of shit I have (but still only manages 3/10 on IMDB).

Other options, based on Del's recent screenings on CaBTV, would be Candy (1968 film) (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Candy_(1968_film)). A film that really needs to be experienced to appreciate how wrong every aspect of it is, and how 5 Oscar winners were persuaded to debase themselves by apprearing in it.

If you want to sit grinding your teeth and/or howling at the screen in rage, there is always Robert Stigwell and the Brothers Gibb's adaptation of Sgt. Peppers' Lonely Hearts Club Band (1978 film) (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sgt._Pepper%27s_Lonely_Hearts_Club_Band_(film))

I still don't think it's a terrible film.  Shit on-screen text at the end aside, I don't get what people to this day find so bad about it, regardless of whether or not King was on another planet - it's coherent, it's well shot (some of the cinematography and scene compositions look like they could be in a Malick film), it has some genuinely funny moments, it has some genuinely tense moments, and the production design is aces too.

I completely agree, god knows why Christopher Plummer tries to take it seriously but I guess he heard everyone involved in Star Wars thought it was rubbish until it was released, and my only complaint is that it's a shame they didn't spend £3.50 on the special effects instead of £2.49. I do approve of their use of spaceships which look like they were made out of lego though.

I completely agree, god knows why Christopher Plummer tries to take it seriously but I guess he heard everyone involved in Star Wars thought it was rubbish until it was released, and my only complaint is that it's a shame they didn't spend £3.50 on the special effects instead of £2.49. I do approve of their use of spaceships which look like they were made out of lego though.
That's a good point.  It was really interesting seeing Elstree 1976, all the actors thinking it was a load of shit that would be nobody would watch and be forgotten immediately.
Shame they never made any StarCrash action figures (or blow-up dolls).

Sold out and now priced at £196.57 (plus P&P) on Ebay so unfortunately I'm going to have to resort to making one out of play-doh.

The bikini top isn't right - the cups are too far apart. This is because they have done the same thing they do with all these fantasy collectible (wank) figures of making her bust too big (she was only a 36B). Also, they have given her ridiculous modern 'stripper heel' platform boots - in the film she wore medium heeled boots, which magically change to flats in the fight scenes (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fSgHBbhEhO0) (just like Joanna Cassidy's did in Blade Runner before Ridley reshot her death scene for The Final Cut). It was officially authorised by Munro though apparently, so maybe that's how she wants to be remembered.

Pics pleez!
The market is bigger than I thought, I'm surprised anyone gives a shit.

How do you manage to be more knowledgeable than anyone, about ANY subject?!  Even sexy sci-fi b-movie clothing.
Munro seems happy true.  Hopefully she got given a pile of money for it too.
