I love the Penitentiary films, especially the second one with Mr. T wearing a genie outfit, Ernie Hudson pre-Ghostbusters, and Tony Cox as a horny dwarf. You can't make this shit up, lol.

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

Would we class Halloween as a B-movie? A top class thriller, but not a B-movie in my mind.

Ditto Flash Gordon ... that was a big budget blockbuster.

I'd class a b-movie as low budget and designed to be the supporting movie of a bigger main feature, back when theatres did regular double features. Off the top of my head I'd give Night of the Living Dead (1968), The Warriors (1979), and Piranha (1978) a shout.

i wouldn't call flash gordon a b movie at all, at least not how they're usually thought of - low budget, exploitation elements, a bit trashy & cranked out quickly to turn a (hopefully) easy profit.



i think halloween might qualify by some measures, but i'd still leave it out of consideration because it's really a little too well made & ultimately too successful. but i think something like texas chainsaw massacre would fit, because it's uglier & nastier & less widely loved.

The 100 Best “B Movies” of All Time

The 100 Best “B Movies” of All Time

Not every film can be the Citizen Kane of its day. For every high-budget “A movie” that commands significant promotion and funding from its studio, there are piles of B movies that scratch and claw their way into existence without the benefit of things like “a budget” or “a script” in some cases. To compare them with A movies in terms of resources and immersiveness isn’t a fair proposition. Instead, discerning film fans are able to simply appreciate them for what they are.

But what does “best” mean when we’re talking about films often famous for their shoddy construction? It certainly doesn’t mean “best-made.” It also doesn’t mean “worst-made,” or else films like Manos: The Hands of Fate and The Beast of Yucca Flats would make prominent appearances. They’re not on this list because the meaning of “best” here is “most entertaining,” and I defy you to be entertained by Manos without its MST3k commentary or a pound of medical-grade marijuana. If these films are painful, they’re also equally fun.

Whenever possible, I tried to keep the list to more obscure titles. Although John Carpenter’s Halloween is a great example of a superbly made “B movie” in terms of budget, any film fan has most likely seen it already. Gathered here is a collection of some of the most entertainingly cheap and endearingly bad movies ever made.

Forgot to mention Rudy Ray Moore had a cameo in Penitentiary 2. And I believe Ernie Hudson's first role was in one of the 'Dolemite' films (another classic B-movie series).

Depends on what a "B Movie" is . . .


I'd say Prince's films (other than SoTT) count. Others include --

Night of The Living Dead
Grease 2
Flash Gordon
Tales From The Crypt: Demon Knight

Good night, sweet Prince | 7 June 1958 - 21 April 2016

Props will be withheld until the showing and proving has commenced. -- Aaron McGruder
