Synopsis

A programmer at a TV station that specializes in adult entertainment searches for the producers of a dangerous and bizarre broadcast.

Reason to Watch

Film is dotted with video jargon and ideology which proves more fascinating than distancing. And Cronenberg amplifies the freaky situation with a series of stunning visual effects.

Synopsis

A television network cynically exploits a deranged former anchor's ravings and revelations about the news media for its own profit, but finds that his message may be difficult to control.

Reason to Watch

Network can be faulted both for going too far and not far enough, but it's also something that very few commercial films are these days. It's alive.

Synopsis

Humans fight mutants in a post-holocaust world.

Reason to Watch

As suggested by Mitchy!

The film is terribly low-budget but there is a great deal of ingenuity with the special effects and action sequences. Does that mean they're good? Nope!

Synopsis

A group of sadistic mercenaries kidnap people off the streets and set them loose on the grounds of their secret camp, so the "students" at the camp can learn how to track down and kill their prey.

Reason to Watch

Trying it on the list again!

Deadly prey is bad action at it's worst. The epitome of '80s action flicks. From the mullets to the techno drum beats to the insane action sequences, Deadly Prey is a little known film from director David Prior that hasn't aged well since its release.

Synopsis

A horribly disfigured lawyer, wrongfully pronounced dead after a terrible car accident, is taken to an asylum for dissection, only to come back alive, kill everyone, and make the asylum his killing grounds.

Reason to Watch

Doom Asylum is a slasher movie that is either a deliberate spoof of itself or very incompetently made.

Synopsis

Exotic Eastern European beauty, Linda Allen, flies in to Los Angeles to track down the evil mobsters who tortured and murdered her sister. Meanwhile, the mobsters are trying to find a tape with information that would be incriminating to them. Linda's investigation deals with a pimp who may be the murderer she is after, and a helpful FBI agent who may not be the crime hunter he pretends to be. Cunning and deadly she is, but will she be up to the tangled web of corruption, violence, and death she falls into?

Reason to Watch

The plot is about Lady Street Fighter maybe trying to figure out what happened to her sister(?)

Not many (probably a minority of) movies are poor enough to be entertaining in their awfulness. This one might not even achieve that level. But it has it's moments!

Synopsis

A tough Alabama cop is blackmailed by the FBI into going undercover in a violent Mississippi biker gang.

Reason to Watch

Few would recognise Stone Cold as either a great movie or indeed necessarily a great action movie, but without doubt Craig R. Baxley’s bloody slice of action pulp makes for entertaining and at times exciting viewing. The script is hokey, the story predictable, the violence bordering on tasteless, and it has enough cliches to last a lifetime, but when it has fun with itself and doesn’t slip too heavily into trying to be a serious action film, it’s damn good fun.
