If, like me, you enjoy movies that are so bad that they are good then you will find this an essential reference book to increase your DVD collection. Includes many movies that I have never heard of before but will now search for on Amazon and eBay. Although my own personal favourite - 'Plan 9 from Outer Space' - only got an honourable mention. (Edward D. Wood's 'Glen or Glenda' has just moved to the top of my bad movie wish list!) I was also surprised to see that the original of Tron or Death Ra ...more
Some of the most awful movies of all time are profiled in this collection of reviews, many/most of which were nominees for the annual Razzie Awards, though those awards didn't start until about 1981.

The earliest film is Maniac (AKA "Sex Maniac") (1934) and the latest is Glitter (2001). The films cover the full range of genres and are mostly U.S. made. The very few that are not were released dubbed.

Wilson writes well and made me laugh out loud repeatedly. He also made m

Entertaining, as far as snarky books go ... I enjoyed it (and it gave me some new information on cinematic turds I was previously unfamiliar with)!
Oh, so fun! Treat yourself to a bad movie soon. And may I recommend Splice? Too new for this book but I hope it sweeps the Razzies this year!
