C'mon, they weren't THAT bad!

Body Double (1984)
  The film is especially fun to watch when considering an implied film-within-the-film, as the protagonist, Jake, is "directed" by the villain. Melanie Griffith is actually quite funny, the score is killer, courtesy of Pino Donaggio.
Club Dread (2004)
  I can't understand why the Broken Lizard's first film following their hit, "Super Troopers", didn't get a good response. Hysterical set-ups, colorful characters, and classic lines ("You've manacled me to my death bed, you piccadilly whore!") make for a very enjoyable viewing.
Death Wish 4: The Crackdown (1987)
  Original "Death Wish" director Michael Winner bowed out of this sequel, but J. Lee Thompson does a fine job of handling the action. Charles Bronson is always fun to watch, and I think the entire "Death Wish" series is a treat and begs for a marathon.
John Carpenter's Ghosts of Mars (2001)
  Not Carpenter's best work, but the setting is great, and Carpenter keeps the action moving.
The Golden Child (1986)
  An odd story, but not necessarily bad. Pitting comedian Eddie Murphy against demons actually makes for an amusing feature, especially with Eddie saying things like, "I'd say uh-I, I, I, I, I, I want the knife!"
Gorgeous (1999)
  An underrated Jackie outing. Not much action, as the movie focuses on the romance that the charming Shu Qi desires. A quiet and cute little story, with scene-stealing Tony Leung Chiu-Wai as Shu Qi's gay friend.
Halloween 3: Season of the Witch (1982)
  This film might have had a better reception sans the "Halloween" title. A delicious concept of vicious Halloween masks helps, and that "Silver Shamrock" theme is incredibly catchy!
Hiruko the Goblin (1990)
Not Rated
  Probably Shinya Tsukamoto's least popular film (due to its apparent commercialism), this flick moves quick, with some dark humor and some very creepy moments, in particular with the spider-esque monster.
Izo (2004)
Not Rated
  Stylish and much more abstract than concrete. It's really long, but it works as an epic, lyrical feature, or maybe a 2-hour metaphor.
A Low Down Dirty Shame (1994)
  Perhaps not as hysterial as "I'm Gonna Git You Sucka", but Keenen Ivory Wayans churns out some great one-liners, his sister Kim has a funny cameo, and Jada Pinkett (not Smith back then) is irresistible. "All the dogs on the right go, 'Oo-ah! Oo-ah!'"
Psycho 3 (1986)
  Star Anthony Perkins grabs a camera and directs a strong entry, creating some gory scenes, a few frights and a clever homage to Hitchcock's "Vertigo".
Reindeer Games (Director's Cut) (2000)
  Affleck is surprisingly decent is this fast-paced thriller with exceptional performances from Gary Sinise and Charlize Theron. A nice twist ending, too.
Ultraviolet (2006)
Not Rated
  Milla Jovovich looks cool, and there are some well choreographed action sequences. Just accept the fact that there isn't much of a plot, and you might enjoy it more.
