While there's a little comedic value to some of these, for the most part these fall under the category of "there's two hours of my life I'll never get back".

The "head" of the family is literally that - a giant head on a tiny body, who psychically controls the rest of his even weirder family.

Director: Charles Band | Stars: Blake Adams, Jacqueline Lovell, Bob Schott, James Jones

Votes: 1,050

Thought it'd be a funny B-movie, but this didn't even come close to qualifying as entertainment. Oh and there's a scene where the Head gets "head" - don't ask me how!

Great performances, but way too depressing (and I can handle nearly anything).

Director: George Miller | Stars: Jonathan Brandis, Kenny Morrison, Clarissa Burt, John Wesley Shipp

Votes: 20,124 | Gross: $17.37M

This film is horrible on it own, but it's made 10x worse by the fact that it makes a total mockery of the original.

Billed as an action/romance movie, but utterly dull all around.

Interesting premise that devolved into torture porn pretty quick.
