What is your favorite worst movie ever?
Wednesday July 14, 2021 | By Hieronymus Hawkes | TV and Movie Review
Watched a movie on a weekend when I was in college, many moons ago, more out of boredom than anything else. Hard to imagine having so much time on my hands these days, but we ended up going to the watch what I consider one of the worst movies of all time. Night of the Comet. It is a cross between Valley Girl and Night of the Living Dead, but not nearly as good as either one.
The cast is actually pretty good, with Robert Beltran, best known as Chekotay from Star Trek Voyager, and Catherine Mary Stewart, who played in The Last Starfighter that same year, and if you read the premise it doesn’t sound horrible, but because it came out in 1984, in the midst of big hair and big drama, it just comes off super campy.
The same comet that killed of the dinosaurs comes back around and drops some red dust on the planet that turns everyone it contacts into zombies. Our heroes are safe because they stayed inside a steel room on the night it passed. I won’t ruin the plot for you, it didn’t get lambasted too hard on IMDB or Rotten Tomatoes. It does have the 80s vibe for sure.
What is your favorite bad movie?
Earthquake (w/Charleton Heston). I’m a sucker for disaster flicks, and I like this one, but the casting and storylines are pretty bad.
There were a lot of disaster films back in the 70s that are pretty awesomely bad. =)
There’s a live-action version of a manga series called “Dororo.” It has no business being as entertaining as it is.
I don’t watch a lot of manga. Got my fill of DragonBall Z when the kids were little. I’m not familiar with that one. Thanks for commenting!
