The Worst 80s Movies, Movies Beginning with K
I want the absolute worst movies from the 80s, and please tell me why you
thought they were the worst movies. Of course, some movies are so bad their
good. I don't agree with all the suggestions here. This page goes against what
I really believe in, but I think everyone needs to vent a little.

The Karate Kid Part 3 / 1989
The first one was so great that it is a movie that never gets boring. The second was just as good but the fight wasn't. The third film was just a retelling of the first with an incredibly bad final fight. You leave feeling as if you have just seen the first one with a different title
Thirty-something year old Ralph Macchio reprises his role as Daniel LaRusso in this wet as bag sequel in which he defends his title against the new heavy. But Mr. Myagai (Pat Morita) refuses to train him and recuits Vietnam vet turned evil millionaire named Terry (Thomas Ian Griffith) as his trainer. Predictable from start to finish. Basically a remake of 1984 classic without the heart and passion that made the orignal unforgetable. This movie on the other hand is forgetable and unforgivable!
Basically a revenge movie that's a combination of "The Karate Kid" meet any cliche' action flick. Not to mention this cheesy slugfest starred Jean Claude VanDamme. Enough said.
Killer Clowns From Outer Space / 198?
This movie was supposed to be a horror flick, but was so bad it's hysterical! Not sure of exactly when it came out, but sometime in 80s I think.
Killer Workout / 1987
It was the funniest movie I think I've ever seen and it's a horror movie. Everyone gets killed with a safety pin. What more can I say?
Let's put it this way: there were only five people at the theatre. Myself, my mother, sister and cousins. My cousins and I kept trying to sneak out. The plot was something to the affect of Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton of Terminator fame) gave Kong a heart transplant(?). He lives meets a female Kong; they have a little Kong and the military kills Kong. If you watch this movie closely, you can truly see why this movie stunk: It was shot out of focus.
Knights of The City / 1986
This movie is my favorite B movie by the way. Adult males in their early to mid 30's still in street gangs fighting over turf. The Royal Rockers led by "Troy"(Leon Isaac Kennedy) are in constant scuffles with rival gang Carlos and the Mechanics. Troy loses his girlfriend to Carlos so he decides the best way to prove his worth is to learn dance moves. These moves are taught by a guy named flash who takes Troy all the way to the top. Only to have to face Carlos and the Mechanics one last time for final victory.
A cult classic filled with bad acting and a cheesy story line. The only purpose of watching this film is the cameos of many great hip hop legends like Run DMC, Kurtis Blow, The Beastie Boys, LL Cool J, etc. And the great soundtrack for fans of old school hip hop or popular music in general. At least it's much better than "Disorerlies", a comedy featuring The Fat Boys, who also appear in this film, & "Tougher Than Leather", a drama with Run DMC.
