Mock the Movie: What in the Sam Hell Edition

Sometimes, when filmmakers don’t have the money for a good script, or a good location, or good special effects, they decide to roll with it, hire a non-actor, and pretend the whole thing is supposed to be funny. Of course, that doesn’t actually make the movie funny. When this happens, you get something like Hell Comes to Frogtown.

This one is on YouTube.

“This sounds awful!” I hear you cry. Yes. Yes, it does. “This must be mocked mercilessly”, you say. Well, then you’re in the right company. The instructions for playing along:

  1. Start following @MockTM on Twitter.
  2. Start watching the movie on the appropriate Wednesday at 9 p.m. Eastern time.
  3. Once you’ve got the movie going, tweet your snarky comments to @MockTM.  Directing our tweets to @MockTM will keep our followers from being overwhelmed with our snark!
  4. Set up a search for @MockTM on Twitter for the duration so you can follow along with everyone else sharing your pain.

If you have suggestions for other movies that can and should be mocked, send them to @MockTM. Preference will be given to movies that are free or stream on the major media delivery services. Watch the feed, and we’ll set up the calendar for more terrible, mockable movies.

If you’ve missed a mocking, you can catch transcripts and even subtitle files for later watching on the Mock the Movie archive.

    I’m embarrassed to say that I have this VHS tape tucked away somewhere.

    That looks so ridiculously bad that it might be good.

    A head full of smoke might help.

    But… but… “Rowdy” Roddy Piper!
    I admit that when I was in high school I had a preference for this kind of cheese.
    On that note: If you ever need a movie to mock, just look for anything starring Miles O’Keefe.
