This was a brief but charming syndicated series in the summer of 1986 showcasing some truly baaaaaaaad motion pictures over the years; just imagine "Mystery Science Theater 3000", only without comments from Joel, Mike and the robots in the foreground. This provided a terrific opportunity to see some truly stupendous classics of rotten cinema, among them: "Bride of the Monster", "They Saved Hitler's Brain", "Attack of the Eye Creatures", "Robot Monster", and my pick for best-worst movie of the series, "Eegah"--you HAVE to see this movie to believe it. My favorite scene: a boy and girl take a dune-buggy out into the desert to look for the girl's missing--perhaps injured and dying--father; but first...a snazzy sequence of hot-rodding shots over the dunes to some knock-off Beach Boys music! Truly stupefying! Comprising the framework of the series was the delightful Laraine Newman portraying a Chief Usherette for an old movie palace exhibiting a "film festival" of bad films. Various "friends" would drop by each week to dish on the movie in question. All in all, I remember this fondly as a great chance to catch these rarely-seen "classics" back in '86.
