The Worst 80s Movies, Movies Beginning with U
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.

OMG!! Where to begin? Actually, it was SO BAD, it was great! Basically, it's "Weird Al", and Stanley Spadowski, ("Kramer"), running and operating a UHF station. The game shows are especially funny, with "Wheel of Fish", and "Name that Stain". (Yes, I own the video!) Also, they put in his "Beverly Hillbillies" parody into the movie. Somehow, my boyfriend found this lost treasure on a private auction, and paid well over $100 for it! What can I say? It is the best worst movie ever! I give it 2 thumbs up!
I liked it, because of Weird Al and Micheal Richard. It was like a director, writer, producer and actors took a whole bottle of no-doz and agreed for an all-nighter on a movie that was due at 6 am and started at midnight.
I just wanted to tell you all that it is not a follow up to "Purple Rain". The follow up movie was not made until 1990. So you can't say that it was a bad follow up movie when it was not a follow up movie.
Prince's unsuccessful follow up to "Purple Rain" that shouldn't been made in the first place. It was done in a black & white style that was probably an attempt to give it a 'classic Hollywood' vibe, but the movie wasn't anything interesting. At least the music was great.
The Unearthling aka Pod People / 1983
Ouch, this one hurts! Being a MST fan, I normally have a certain fondness for movies that make the cut, but this one... IT STINKS!!! "Trumpy" is a painful attempt to cash in on the (then) hot E.T. craze (excuse me while I gag on the cuteness...). One more thing, why did they use an elderly woman to dub the young boy's voice? It's creepy... but I had to laugh at the poses the various cannon fodder were forced to take when the were "struck down" by Trumpy's evil twin.
The Uninvited / 1985
Ooooh, what can I say? A cat escapes from a research facility and stows away on board a yacht owned by drugs smugglers. Being an 80's horror movie there HAS to be a bunch of teenage kids on board too, surely? Well, it's funny you should say that... The cat itself is, of course, no ordinary cat... it has a monster inside it. And, again, it's no ordinary monster. This monster is in fact a GLOVE PUPPET. Whenever the cat becomes frightened or finds itself cornered the GLOVE PUPPET BEAST launches itself from the cat's mouth and savages the victim's ankles until he/she bleeds to death. The final 'Two surviving teen geeks V's the GLOVE PUPPET BEAST' battle is as hilarious a cinematic event as has ever been screened. Forget 'Austin Powers', forget 'Dumb and Dumber', the final 5 minutes of this movie will have you gagging for air as you choke, possibly to death, on tears of laughter.
Here some graduates from Animal House (truly a classic!) and Porky's come together to win a college white water raft race, with some gags and bare breasted college girls thrown in for good measure. Definitely a movie that should be sent up river (or creek)
