Movies so bad they're...well bad actually.

There are, I think everyone would agree, a lot of very bad films. Who could forget Plan 9 From Outer Space or Santa Claus Conquers The Martians, for example?
Well I've just watched a contender for the worst movie ever made accolade, it's certainly in the top few worst ones that I've ever seen. It's part of a triple bill on a DVD I paid a whole pound for last week and it's unbelievably bad. It's Roger Corman's Creature From The Haunted Sea.
What's wrong with it? Just about everything actually. It's probably a bit unfair to criticise the dialogue of what is supposed to be a Horror/Comedy. I have to mention the classic " It was dusk: I could tell because the sun was going down" though.
The best thing is the monster. It looks like a ball of wool with two tennis balls for eyes. Oh, that's more or less what it was.

Can't wait for the other two on the disc - Bela Lugosi in "The Devil Bat" and Lionel Atwill in "Vampire Bat". After that, also for the magnificent sum of one pound I have a triple bill of Bela Lugosi films: Invisible Ghost, Scared To Death and White Zombie. I'm tempted to sit here for the next eight hours or so and watch them all in one go.

Great stuff.
