Rare Gerry Anderson TV movie.  It just isn’t that exciting

Lots of wild effects.  Not much of anything else

Pumping water into the ground caused the zombie Apocalypse

Satiric Australian SF car movie – but the cars just sit there.  Mostly

Lopushansky’s ugly post-Apocalyptic film – shot with incredible beauty

A cheap remake of a cheap rip-off…

Avoid.

Wes Craven’s cute-robot-meets-unkillable-slasher teen romance

Brutal Killer Robot movie.  With a totally unhinged Brad Dourif.  Amazing

A lot of everything.  Just don’t expect it to make much sense.

A reasonably good B-Movie.  What more can you ask?

Off the wall, absurd, wickedly entertaining – and shot in 3 days for $24,000.

One of the cultiest cult SF films ever made.  With lots of frogs.

Whoa.

Todd Browning film about Revenge and Mad Science.  With little people

A ghost story which goes in a surprising direction

Incredible deep space film that only cost 5000 Pounds

Dark Japanese children’s film I wouldn’t show to children…
