Am I right to assume that unknown == bad?

Lordy, but I've seen an embarrassing number of those, especially the ones that were on cable in the mid and late 80s.

Let me point out that of all the giant mutant snake movies starring Pat Morita and Erik Estrada that I have seen this year, King Cobra is easily also one of them. It is at least substantially better than Python, a very weak Casper van Dien vehicle.

Also, I frown in displeasure that they did not include the fine, fine film Nudist Colony of the Dead, which is the best naked zombie musical that I have ever seen. No, I am not making this up. The gospel songs are particularly thrilling.

you know how much it sucks when you realize that you could have used those two hours just spent watching an utter horror/embarrassment disguised as a movie and costumed in a VHS/DVD costume to do something worthwhile? yeah, this is a website describing that time.

though Cannibal! The Musical looks like it might be good.

Great resource, crunchland. Thanks for posting it. My jones for cult films has been mostly dormant for the last couple of years, this may rekindle it.

Cameo appearance by Jonah Falcon in the Stuart Saves His Family review.

They also omitted the fine vampire-bat film "Nightwing," chiefly notable for the frame wherein the filmmakers forgot to edit out the bluescreen behind the bats. If you miss that, though, you can still enjoy the sequence in which the young, white reservation doctor gets out of a hot spring and wraps herself in a white towel, followed by her love interest, the Native American sheriff, who wraps himself in a brown towel. Then he calls her his white goddess. It is a viewing experience not easily forgotten.
