A couple of my faves are THE TROLLENBERG TERROR and CIRCUS OF HORRORS. The former is utter garbage, but of the most enjoyable kind, and rather sexy for a British film from the 1950's starring giant one eyed aliens with tentacles growing from arses turned inside out.

Similarly, CIRCUS OF HORRORS was a desperate attempt by another British studio to cash in on Hammer's inernational succes at that time, resulting in an utterly idiotic plot but with acres of buxom flesh on display and quite magnificent colour cinematography by Douglas Slocombe.

If it's over 2 years old, it's probably fair game

There was another one... I posted in it and then it (thanks to Banjo) turned to discussion about squirrels, marmots and rodents generally...
Very similar title, too.

I hope I haven't messed it up... There's nothing wrong with squirrels, I didn't write it as it was wrong.

My guilty pleasures... some silly children's films, I think. And some romantic comedies.

the film is really bad,and i mean it,bad.
with no story(snakes on a plane?in order to kill one man?beautiful!),the acting is ridiculous as i already said..
the only thing that is good are the visual effects,besides that nothing more.
but hey,that's just my opinion,the folks from imbd probably know better...

The topic is "guilty pleasures", therefor it's reasonable to expect that most people think the film's here under discussion "suck" (to use that delightful US teen expression currently still in vogue).
