Troma Entertainment released Beware! Children at Play in 1989, not as an official Troma film, but as part of their film rights catalog. The movie is about cannibal children.
Yes, evil, demented, cannibal CHILDREN!
To call Beware! Children at Play controversial is an understatement. Lloyd Kaufman stated that when the trailer (JUST THE TRAILER) ran before the Cannes Film Festival screening of Tromeo and Juliet, about half of the audience walked out in protest.
What could cause that many people at Cannes Film Festival to walk out? Aren’t they used to avant-garde films?
Here’s a quick plot summary of Beware…
Samurai Cop is one of the Best of the Worst movies of all time, so I had to make a trailer for it. What makes Samurai Cop so awesomely bad? The acting, production quality, editing, dialog, action, the lion, and the WIG. Alone, this would just result in a terrible movie, but combine them and you have a near-perfect good-bad movie. Robert Z’Dar (Maniac Cop) acts circles around Matt Hannon, who plays the hero. The difference in their acting skills makes it all the more laughable.

Class of Nuke ’Em High is silly, gory, and the acting is pretty bad, but it’s a classic and always enjoyable to watch.
In a bit of “WTF!?!” news, it’s being reported that FOX is going to produce a “Bob’s Burgers” movie for theatrical release. Even though I love the show, I feel like it would bomb in the theater.
Does the show really have that big of a following?
I know there was “The Simpsons Movie” in 2007, but that was after 17+ years of it running on television.
Creator Loren Bouchard is on board for the big-screen take from Fox Animation. A big-screen take on the hit animated show Bob’s Burgers is being served up by 20th Century Fox. The series…
Night of the Creeps is a fantastic horror film from director Fred Dekker. The film was written to pay homage to classic b-movies of the 1950’s. While the film bombed when released in 1986, it’s developed a cult following in the decades that followed.
Dekker did a great job with Night of the Creeps, creating a hybrid film of multiple genres. While the main focus is a zombie storyline, it also brings in slasher and “body snatcher” themes. The movie is purposely loaded with b-movie cliches, in an attempt to spoof those films. …
