All the Russian fantasy films chopped up and dubbed for American release, and later mocked on MST3K -- Sadko AKA The Magic Voyage of Sinbad, Ilya Muromets AKA The Sword and the Dragon, and Morozko AKA Jack Frost are quite enjoyable. They have an "anything can happen" flavor that makes them seem like real folktales.

I remember buying that book at a jumble sale, wasn’t too bad for 20p
It’s gone up.
I remember that novel for sale in Smith’s in Winchester, late 1970s. It had a different cover, with photos on the back. A friend’s older brother had seen the film and we were jealous.

Skarro. Or Cleveland. They both suck.
All right, everyone settle down. Unless you've suffered through Nazis at the Centre of the Earth, I got ya beat. It even stars Gary Busey!
After watching that some time ago, I came to a conclusion...

Maybe Gary Busey was better off STAYING on cocaine. I mean...

Nose Candy Loving Gary: Did Major motion pictures with guys like Mel Gibson, Danny Glover, and Tommy Lee Jones.
Coke Zero Gary: This $#!*!

I hang in the curtains and I sleep in your hat
I concur. Possibly only worse is one I had on my SKY box but ended up deleting, the thrust of which was that during World War II the Germans had, um, gargoyles flying for them. I kid you not. I wish I could remember the title. Oh wait, no I don't.

Mission Star Dust 1967 The only cinema adaptation of Perry Rhodan. This is a film that you either love or hate . There is no in-between.

B-film? Try D-film. the only reason to watch Mission Stardust is Essy Persson.
Without here that film film would be unwatchable.

Here another one Mission Hydra 1966 A. K. A. Star Pilot. Have you ever seen that. one? :D

The Incredible Melting Man 1975 . An astronaut arrives at the Planet Saturn, catches a virus which causes his flesh to liquefy . There is no cure for his terminal condition , all he can do is slow down the meting process by devouring human flesh. This film has it all, bad directing , bad writing bad acting , bad editing . This film is an atrocious mess of movie and not even fun to watch.
Ted Nelson was an interesting character as bad ones go.
His monologue about crackers is one highlight-- he gets thrown off a balcony by the deranged melting man, and then asks the very same to lend him a hand...or what was left of it.
A very trusting guy, Ted Nelson.

"Who Killed Captain Alex?" is an $85 budget action film made in a Ugandan slum. With its Video Joker commentary, I laughed out loud a few times. It's legally free to watch on YouTube:


Wakaliwood has released a few more ultra low-budget films. Here's a trailer for Bad Black:


Crazy website:

Photo story:

And Wakaliwood is doing good things with money made from Kickstarter campaigns and elsewhere, such as teaching local children (girls included) animation.

NO MORE TEARS!

As the song in the movie says.
Nick Adams looks kind of embarrassed.
I heard Darren McGavin got really mad with a helmet he had to wear being too small.

Santo films can be really imaginative. There's one in color "Santo en El tesoro de Drácula" with a time machine tv set where they can watch the past unfolding and it shows a porno version of Dracula--but the production values for that Dracula part of the story are very high end for the late 60s.
Some Mexican films are very memorable like CURSE OF THE DOLL PEOPLE, DOCTOR OF DOOM, HELLISH SPIDERS and THE BRAINIAC (and they often have a wrestling interlude). The dubbing by K Gordon Murrey adds to the enjoyment.
Another one is a weird western RIDER OF THE SKULLS.
