        • Fatal Games

          Could be a great tie in for the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympic Games?

          Maybe a tad too racy of an Olympic games bound slasher film but a few black bars here and there... just adds existential atmosphere? Javelin in a tepid attempt at a twist ending? That's some good riffing.

          • Zombies on Broadway (1945)

            Press agents Jerry and Mike try to find a real life voodoo zombie for their new Broadway nightclub. Bela Lugosi also appears playing, you guessed it, a mad scientist.

            Actors Wally Brown and Alan Carney are considered nothing more than "Abbott and Costello" wannabes, but they would return for several comedic films.

            Directed by Gordon Douglas (THEM, STAGECOACH, VIVA KINEVEL, and THE DEVIL WITH HITLER).

            • Gary Coleman For Safety's Sake (1986)

              "Actor Gary Coleman appears in this instructional video designed to show children how to be safe and stay safe. Included are tips on accident prevention, how to stay safe when home alone, and other procedures that have been developed by the National Safety Council and the American Red Cross.
              - Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com"

              Sounds as terrible as the above mention description implies.

              • The Langoliers

                The langoliers, though written by Stephen king, was an incredibly bad made for tv miniseries. It featured good actors acting badly, horrible lines, and special effects that were truly cringeworthy. It would be a delight to Tear this woefully underdone film a new one.

                • Demon Wind

                  The main thing I recall about this movie is the bitchin' vhs box at the video store and then...something about a farm, and...maybe some demonic activity? But, mostly just kids wandering about a farmhouse the production got permission to film at. Reminding one of Fever Lake, or Rock & Roll Nightmare. I think it's fertile riffing grounds.

                      • Millions

                        Edited from an IMDB review

                        Here's the basic plot: A pack of money-grabbing, extremely rich and attractive relatives (the Ferretti's) are trying to take over their ailing uncle's industrial empire.

                        The pack is led by Maurizio Ferretti (Billy Zane), a rich, very savy and attractive million dollar playboy. His main goal is to take over the family's million dollar business while his Uncle Leo is dying in a hospital somewhere. And how does he plan on doing this? Black-mailing his father, sleeping w/ numerous women and being an all around money hungry, scheming jerk!

                        Lauren Hutton plays Cristina, Uncle Leo's…

                            the "special" is a stage production and it starts with a plot that just disappears from the film, classic songs of the holiday are butchered and then she talk about the state congress and what she would do if she was representative, there is some racism when they try to represent hawaiians and native american's, there's a lot weird crap in thing and i can't possibly tell…

                                      Just watch 15 minutes of this turd and you'll see why it needs to be riffed. It's ungodly bad.

                                      • The Arrival (the one with Charlie Sheen)

                                        If you've seen it, you know how much riff potential there is. Rolling chairs in labs. Charlie Sheen randomly shirtless. Aliens with backward legs. Satellites. Weird romance, if you can call it that. Charlie Sheen mistakenly wearing 2 different shirts in the same scene. Need I go on?
