Movies That Have Been B-Noted

The Apple (1980) Magic apple!
Mystery apple!
Take a little ride.
Let me be your guide
Through the apple paradise....
The Beast with a Million Eyes (1955) Originally, this movie was going to be called The Unseen.  There’s irony in that title for two reasons....
Body Fever (1969) Ray Dennis Steckler, ancestor of the modern independent filmmaker, does a film noir in color.
The Brain from Planet Arous (1957) Dueling space brains!  Well, sort of.  (Part of Brainathon '99)
Cape Canaveral Monsters (1960) This is Phil Tucker's other tale of healthy young scientists vs. alien invaders with a goofy radio.
Cowboy Commandos (1943) Yehaw!  It's the rootin' tootin' Range Busters against some ornery Nazi bushwhackers!
The Craving (1980) Jacinto Molina made movies the way they used to; some may argue a little too much like they used to
Deadly Spawn (1983) No one worries about what's eating a teenager until it's too late.  And in this case, it ain't teen angst.  (Features a special appearance by a mystery guest.)
Don't Open Till Christmas (1985) A lot of people are "mistletoe prone."
Escape 2000 (1981, a.k.a. Turkey Shoot) Several stories warn about the horrors of living in a totalitarian society.  Only problem is, some of these stories are so poorly done, they make the totalitarian bad guys and their world of pure order look good.  (One of the Days of Future Past.)
The Fast and the Furious (1954) Cars and B movies.  They don't make either like they used to.
Four Sided Triangle (1953) There was a time when doing a weird tale at Hammer was a new thing.
Frankenhooker (1990) Frank Henenlotter showed a lot of promise with his dreamlike Basket Case and hallucinatory Brain Damage.  This movie is neither.
Frogs (1972) During the '50's and early '60's, there were several films about the end of the world, but that was OK, because it was survivable.  During the '60's and '70's, storytellers were less optimistic.
The Frozen Dead (1966)  In the years following World War II, the Nazi party became associated with ultimate evil.  But it wasn't enough to show these popular icons of twentieth century devilry in stories set during the war....
The Hills Have Eyes (1978) According to some biographical information on Wes Craven, he made this movie shortly after moving to California. My God, where did his creative writer's imagination take him on that trip?
Holocaust 2000 (1978) A movie this outstandingly bad doesn't deserve an introduction..  (Part of Bangs 'n' Whimpers)
Humanoids from the Deep (1980) The previews for several B movies, including this one, began to look as good as movies with higher expectations, but this would not save the movie once the characters opened their mouths and the script began to unfold.
Invasion of the Blood Farmers (1972) The Blue Öyster Cult wasn't the only group of weirdoes haunting upstate New York in the early '70's.
Invisible Invaders (1959) Night of the Living Dead meets Plan 9 From Outer Space.
Mars Needs Women (1967) Aliens crash the pajama sixties.  (Part of pale imitations: A Salute to Larry Buchanan.)
Night of Bloody Horror (1969) People today talk about movies not living up to their hype....
Nightfall (1988) In 1941, Isaac Asimov wrote a story about a civilization that has only known light, but one of their scientists realizes that a blinding darkness and tragedy were coming.  Nearly fifty years later, it was made into a feature film, and the result was a blinding tragedy of a movie.
Nukie (1993) E.T. go home!
Scared to Death (1947) They say that dreams in color are more lucid and dramatic than those in black and white.  However, this is not always the case....
Sole Survivor (1982) It stood out like a leisure suit at a black-tie party. The cover art was tacky, unpromising. The write-up on the back was uninspired. This had to be a bad B movie.  However....
The Sorcerers (1967) Welcome to the brutal dawn of Silver with a gentle man of Iron.  (Part of the Pretty Mad Scientists roundtable of reviews.)
Space Monster Dogora (1964) You'll believe a giant neuron can fly!  (Part of Review All Monsters!)
Spawn of the Slithis (1977) When you think Venice, CA, you may think "relentlessly superficial."  We won't get in the way of that stereotype here.
Starship Invasions (1977) When the Canadian government offered filmmakers financial incentives to make Canadian movies, it probably seemed like a good idea at the time.   
The Town that Dreaded Sundown (1976) It's a minor classic, and you know what they say about the classics.  They're the things someone else says you have to experience to appreciate what we have today.
The Uncanny (1977) For people who didn't think cats were creepy enough on their own, here's a little something to give you paws for alarm.  (OK, let's see you try to sell this lump.)  Special Guest Review by Mr. Peeve.
Warriors of the Wasteland (1982) When speaking of bad movies, unintentional national slurs are possible.  Having warned you, we continue....  (Part of the Post-Apocalypso)
Werewolf of Washington (1973) A by-product of the Watergate era was several disposable comedies.  Some of them were more disposable than others....
Not of This Earth (1957)  Coming Soon!  Roger Corman's ode to alien vampires.

Small Stuff (B-Notes Lite)

Good Against Evil (1977) Pilot error.  A series crashes on takeoff.
Mountaintop Motel Massacre (1983) A creative B-movie satisfies a demand, but a movie like this creates a demand for satisfaction.
Nadja (1994) Welcome to Artflickia, land of the pretentious film.
Supreme Sanction (1999) Three Days of the Condor meets Luc Besson's Nikita.  Well, that was the intention....
