It's my turn to host video night this saturday night. What's a good campy film to show...any ideas. I was thinking Plan 9 From Outer Space or the silent flick Metropolis. Thanks,Richie

    My favorite all time film is "Strictly Ballroom" which has a fair amount of camp to it.

      I don't know if it's my favorite, but "Joanna" is very campy.

      1. You simply can't beat Beyond the Valley of the Dolls!

        1. The funniest bad movie I can remember seeing is the Bo Derek Tarzan. Not for everybody b/c of the nudity, but for misguidedly hilarious filmmaking it is hard to beat. Especially the scene where the dying Richard Harris says a long farewell to his naked, green-painted daughter while impaled on a giant tusk. Hard to beat that for awkward set-up and failed pathos.

          1. I would vote for "The Ritz" or, to give it a vaguely Chowhound theme, "Eating Raoul".
