I almost forgot:

SCORCHY with Connie Stevens (as federal undercover agent Jackie Parker) and Cesare Danova. Highlight: A heart-stopping climatic chase with golf carts.

that's a Lifetime movie, you have expect it to be bad. All their movies are bad. They always star Valerie Brtenelli, Michelle Lee or Nancy McKeon...once in a while Markie Post and Judith Light for variety...and they almost always have bad titles. Although, "Mother May I Sleep With Danger" has got to be the worst.

I have to admit though, their have many Sunday afternoons taht i have gotten sucked into a Lifetime in spite of myself. They can be a fun guilty pleasure.

Then of course, there's my favorite bad 80s films - Flash Gordon and Xanadu. I've seen both hundreds of times.

I love Lifetime movies. I think one of my favorite would have to be, "A Face To Die For."

Whatever happened to the original cut of Flesh Gordon? The only version I've ever seen available has all the good stuff edited out, but occasionally you'll catch a fleeting glimpse of something that shouldn't have gotten past the censors.

I remember "Peter Proud". I read the book after I saw the movie. I don't remember it being that bad...I guess I liked the idea of reincarnation.

I think I saw Peter Proud. It sounds very familiar.

I'm trying to remember the name of a 70s movie I saw on TV as a kid that haunted me for years. All I remember is the final scene in which a young woman in a white robe is advancing towards someone with a knife and she removes her wig to reveal she's......a man? someone he knows? I don't remember, but teh expression on the psycho's face was burned into my brain forever.

I also remember another 70s flick about a clay scuptor who hid his victims in his works (not unlike House of Wax). Same movie as above? I don't think so, but it scared me, too.

And believe it or not, I actually remember seeing The Fearless Vampire Killers (aka Dance of the Vampires) on TV. I couldn't have been more than 5 years old. I only remember something about a frozen man with bite marks on his neck and flashes of the ballroom scene.

I would love to find all these and watch them again now that I'm older.

PS - Burnt Offerings with Bette Davis was pretty bizarre and creepy. Remember that scary driver who kept popping up? He was as bad as the video-camera guy in Lost Highway.

I remeber the Fearless Vampire Killers.

I also remember a really horrible movie called The Fan in which Lauren Bacall plays a Broadway star being stalked by a psychotic killer. The best scene in this movie was Lauren doing her big cheesy Broadway showstopper, Hearts Not Diamonds. She craoked and hit every sour note she could find while chorus boys and girls danced around her in a number that was part Chorus Line and part Sigfried and Roy. A terrible movie worth seeing for a laugh and especially worth it for Broadway fans.

3) Bring It On
4) Not Another Teen Movie
5) Saving Silverman

To Orion 59

The 2 headed mess was " The Thing With 2 Heads " (Clever title)

There is also "Myra Breckenridge" ( The Gone With The Wind " of turkeys) . There is also a soft porn movies called " Chatterbox". The title says it all

Back in the mid 1980's, we had the World's Worst Film Festival in NYC. People flocked to it knowing they would see all turkeys. There were more turkeys on display than on Thanksgiving

"It's always fun to hear Lauren Bacall sing, and she's in good, sardonic form, joining Barrett for a combination of "You Haven't Changed at All" (The Day Before Spring) and "I Remember It Well" (Gigi).

Hmmm...makes you think, don't it. What exactly does Ken mean by "fun?"

"Whatever happened to Michael Sarazzin? He was a cutie."

Did anyone ever see "Frankenstein: The True Story"? I liked that version very much. It made so much more sense to me to have a handsome "monster" instead of the old flat top model to start out with. I mean, if your going to go to the trouble of making something, aren't you going to make it the best you can?

It would be more understandable to see him evolve or mutate or whatever you want to call it, into something else.

Michael Sarazzin did an outstanding job of playing the handsome “monster” who couldn’t understand why Victor, the man who was so proud of him to begin with, turn against him.

I wonder if this is on DVD someplace? I wouldn’t mind seeing it again.

The Fan has some of the strangest moments captured on film during the 80s. Bacall's first rehearsal with gushing gypsies, when she begs them to be patient (!) because the musical theater is terra nova for her. The show itself, including that "Hearts, Not Diamonds" number (with a chorus chanting "A remarkable woman IS!"), is a sort of cheeseball version of LADY IN THE DARK mixed with outtakes from ALL THAT JAZZ. Bacall wears satin pajamas in something like a jail cell. Whats startling is how it points up Bacall's limitations, and it came out just as she opened in WOMAN OF THE YEAR on b'way. (OT: my favorite Bacall musical moment recorded, "God damn it! I AM! The Wo-MAN! OF! The! YEEEEEEAR!")

The whole show-within-a-movie was filmed in the old Entermedia, down on the lower East Side, and bears no resemblence to a broadway house. Her final confrontation with pouty Bien, when she bravely talks him down, ascends to camp heaven.

I think I know way too much about this movie.
