Weekend Assignment #67: Bad Movie Marathon! Share your favorite bad film of all time. Tell us why you love it so.
Extra Credit: Your favorite quote from the aforementioned film.
This is like a nightmare, where I show up to class at the end of the year just in time to take the final exam. I haven't done a weekend assignment since, well, since the first one I think. I just couldn't pass this one up.
In true Freeepeace fashion, I'm making up for lost time by admitting to two (totally different) favorite really really bad movies of all time. In no particular order...

CHILDREN OF THE CORN - He who walks behind the rows
I am not a fan of slasher films. Most of us know this. But for some reason, I chose to watch this film over and over when it was on cable in the 80s. I'm such a closet fan that I don't even own a copy. I wish I had it just to see how really bad it is one more time. Because truly, it's a bad, bad film. So bad that I love it.
What's not to love? Young Linda Hamilton and Peter Horton. A bunch of adorable kids with no adults to tell them what to do (uh, 'cause they're dead). A secluded Nebraska town with more corn than anyone would ever need. And who could forget the little weasel-leader, Isaac and his half-wit goofball sidekick, Malachai? Plus, it's a Stephen King flick.

XANADU - Now we are here
Roller skates, dreams and Gene Kelly. I love the music and the fantasy. It makes no sense to anyone who's never stepped outside the box. But come on, this movie, as horrible as it is, is a totally rip-roaring fun-filled psychedellic trip. Don't we all love the soundtrack? Olivia Newton-John? ELO? They still rock.
I definitely need to add these two to my DVD collection. You know, now that I've outted myself.
