What I'd like to know is how did Ruth Gordon end up in a film with Jermaine Jackson?! 

Tito Jackson wasn't available.

Cat-Women and Missile to the Moon are great cheese-fests. I just watched She and Shock Treatment in the past year for the first time. I haven't seen Voyage of the Rock Aliens...it sounds ridiculous, though.

More:

 

"Cat-Women of the Moon" (1953)--Sci-fi with Sonny Tufts and Marie Windsor.

 

"Voyage of the Rock Aliens" (1984)--Sci-fi musical with Pia Zadora, Ruth Gordon, and Jermaine Jackson.  Watch for the MTV video shoved into the movie.

 

"She" (1982)--Set in a post-nuclear apocalypse.  Watch for the scene that combines "The Howling" (1981) and "Gone With the Wind" (1939).

 

"Shock Treatment" (1981)--Sequel to "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" (1975) did predict the rise of "reality" television--is worth a watch.

Equinox ​(1970). Not as bad as other low-budget B movies, and it has a cult following.

Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! from 1965, is a good one.  Russ Meyer directed several campy and trashy classics.

What a great list Lawrence!  Of course I wouldn't use the word "bad" to describe many of those films. One suggestion: be sure to watch Gummo sitting in your bath, eating a bowl of spaghetti. And don't forget to tape a piece of bacon to the wall.

 

A film I would suggest for you, particularly if you can get the version with the dubbing in English (which is very hard to find) is that pinnacle of Mexican horror, Black Pit of Dr. M.

"The Navy Versus The Night Monsters" (1966)--Mamie Van Doren, Killer Trees, and victims that have to force themselves into the "Trees".

 

I looked into getting a copy of this one, but the DVD's are too much. I may watch it streaming when I do my festival, though.

I have a couple more coming soon in the mail. They'll be here before I begin my marathon.

 

Truth or Dare? (1986) - Not to be confused with the Madonna documentary, this is a micro-budget oddity that I've read about for years but never seen. Elijah Wood was talking it up on a talk show recently as one of his favorite cult movies.

 

The Apple (1980) - A reportedly jaw-dropping science fiction musical.

 

There are a couple more of my favorites that I just can't track down, as they've never been on DVD and the VHS copies are rare. 

 

Wizards of the Lost Kingdom (1985) - Cut-rate fantasy starring Bo Svenson as a sword-wielding hero. I used to quote this one constantly.

 

The Satan Killer (1993) - A burned-out cop on the hunt for a vicious serial killer. This film never misses an opportunity to be stupid. Hilariously bad.

Dr. Goldfoot and His Bikini Machine is another campy one.
You could also diversify with some so bad they're good kids films like those Rankin Bass television specials (Rudolph, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, etc.) or Mad Monster Party.

I see you have a lot of horror movies on your list, so how about The Attack of the Killer Tomatoes?

I'm in the process of compiling movies that I'll be watching in a couple of months. I wanted to re-watch (and watch) the best-worst movies of all time, those that are so incompetent or strange as to be entertaining in their own way. I've got quite a few already (around 75) from the 1930's through the 2000's. Most I've seen before, but there's a few that will be first time watches.

 

I wanted to ask for recommendations, any titles that you think should be included in such a line-up. Here are some of the ones that I have already:

Reefer Madness

The White Gorilla

Glen or Glenda?

Mesa of Lost Women
