Worst. Movie. Ever.

No, not another rant about Maximum Overdrive.

Saturday, zensidhe hosted a birthday party, and just because he's that kind of person, he had a screening of The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra.

Now, there's some debate as to whether or not a movie can qualify as "worst movie ever" if it tries to be bad--and this movie tries to be bad, really, really hard. It's a parody of everything from Plan 9 from Outer Space to Creature from the Black Lagoon, and it manages to throw in every single science-fiction/horror cliche known to man. The script allegedly took five days to write, and as near as I can tell, the other four days were spent making the dialog worse--nobody, but nobody, gets dialog that awful on the first go-round.

"We gave up messes eons of your Earth years ago."

"If I wanted a safe life, I wouldn't have married a man who studies rocks for a living!"

If you like that kindof thing, it's the kind of thing you'll like.

I'm going to nominate "Robot Holocaust" for best worst movie ever. But I don't think they were trying to spoof anything.

Gah! From what I can read, it sounds positively dreadful. Think I'll have to dig up a copy. :)

'But don't the Amish live in the open air?' 'Yes, it would be cruel to keep them under glass.'

'We take our mutilations seriously around here.'
