Full Description
Whether you realize it or not, you probably enjoy bad movies. If you've ever been amused by cheesy '80s action, or laughed at a shoddy horror movie monster, then you've paddled in the so-bad-it's-good shallows. The deep waters beyond can be intimidating, teeming as they are with dreck. But among the unmentionables are some of the most ridiculous and enjoyable movies ever made. You just need to know where to look.

Exposing good-bad action movies, science fiction and fantasy, horror - and the rest - The Bad Movie Bible includes films such as Batman & Robin, The Room, Troll 2, Miami Connection, Nick Fury: Agent of Shield, Black Devil Doll From Hell, and Hell Comes to Frogtown.
The Bad Movie Bible is the first in the series of light-hearted movie bibles, analyzing and eulogizing cinematic subcultures.
