Dan Ackroyd, John Candy, Gilda Radner and Cheech and Chong present this compilation of classic bad films from the 50's, 60's and 70's. Special features on gorilla pictures, anti-marijuana films and a special tribute to the worst film maker of all-time, Ed Wood. Written by

Writers Harry and Michael Medved worked as consultants on this film, which was inspired by their books, "The Golden Turkey Awards" and "The Fifty Worst Films of All Time". The brothers were so incensed by their treatment by the film's producers (and the end result) that they devoted a small entry to it in their subsequent book, "The Hollywood Hall Of Shame". See more »
I believe ICFH was definitely the inspiration for MST3K (1988). In 1982, many so called Baby Boomers were reminded, in a very entertaining way, of the "Late Late Show" movies of their childhood. They were also made aware of many movies that they were unaware of previously. I think this movie was a major factor in the resurgence of Ed Wood, and also the fact that virtually all the other movies shown on ICFH are now available on DVD.I think the first six years of the MST3K series,is basically a continuation the Cheech&Chong skit on ICFH. It's apparent this movie was very influential during the 80's,and continues to be a "Cult Classic".
