Right!

Starting with this one for me: maybe not exactly a B-movie but hilariously strange (and rather vulgar - in a good way!)
\t
Kondom des Grauens
I mean, come on! How can you go wrong witha deranged condom - with teeth!
Oh and the condom-vision is more unsettling than the snake-o-vision!

Plus, an interesting tidbit: this is a German film about a murderous rubber that pays hommage to the most famous style of French-named German film genre made in Hollywood, the film noir

(Crap! Must..lower...brow...more
)


And, one of my favourite Troma films (at least that I can think of)

Not a B-movie really but I love the premise: Full Metal gokudô
Reanimator is a great one. Have wanted to see Sgt. Kabukiman, I keep forgetting to look for it!

Takashi Miike is one of my favorite directors.

Big Trouble in Little China doesn't belong on this list...It's a badass movie, no one should be ashamed to admit that. John Carpenter movies that aren't just another remake of Assault on Precinct 13 with an alien or monster = good.

Mine are:

Frankenhooker
Redneck Zombies (classic)
Toxic Avenger ("I've always wanted to cornhole me a blind bitch!")
The Untold Story
Ebola Syndrome (Anthony Wong kicks ass)
Pink Flamingos

Big Trouble's a classic. Kung fu, magic, Kurt Russell (who is himself quite magical) and a young Kim Cattrall, what more could anyone want?

American Werewolf I was on the fence with, until the scene of nonsensical mayhem right at the end, which abruptly cuts into Blue Moon by The Marcels. I laughed so, so very hard.

Good movies so far. I remember seeing Killer Condom on TV a few years ago, I didn't expect that. Full Metal Yakuza wasn't as captivating as other Miike movies for me. The last B movie I saw was Die You Zombie Bastards at the Fantasia festival, it was awesome!

I guess it all depends on what you consider a "b" movie. Big Trouble In Little China was widely panned on release, and dropped from most theaters in less than two weeks. So basically, any success its had is because of home video and word of mouth.

One of my favorite movies... The steadily decomposing dead figment of David's imagination that keeps appearing to crack jokes and beg him to kill himself...
classic.

The Black Sexploitation movies, often starring Jim Brown and Fred Williamson, are abominations that I can't stop watching. The Big Bad Mamma movies, too, with Shelley Winters, and Angie Dickinson, are atrocious but fun. And of course, ALL of the Joan Crawford films from her 'deranged', virago period. BERSERK, STRAIGHT JACKET, BABY JANE, I SAW WHAT YOU DID, TROG . . . to an extent, some of JC'S 'good' movies, fall into this camp, as well? Queen Bee, and Harriet Craig, among them.
