So Bad It's Good?: Manos! The Hands of Fate

I had a good laugh the other day when I happened to come across this gem of a movie title -- Manos: The Hands of Fate (1966). How could you not at least crack a smile at a movie that has the same word appear twice in the title two different languages?! I mean, really, it just wants to show off its versatility and bilingualism, right?

I started doing that 30 Day Movie Challenge that has been circulating around Facebook. I was struggling to come up with my pick for Least Favourite Film when a friend decided to help me out by sending me the list of the 100 Worst Films from

I'm happy (proud?) to say that I haven't seen a single one of the films on the list. Although, some of them sound like absolutely fabulous examples of B-movie schlock and cheese. So, while none of the films on the list will make my Least Favourite Film pick for that Facebook challenge, I now have some crummy, low-grade movies to look up! Starting with Manos: The Hands of Fate.

Question: What is your favourite so-bad-its-good movie? I'm looking for some good recommendations!
