The Apple (1980)

How bad is it? It's camp. It's kitsch. It's symbolism up the wazoo.
Should you see it? If you're looking for a bad musical, there aren't many better choices.

Did you guess that this was the bad guy? How'd you know?!
The Golan-Globus production team were responsible for a ton of low-budget schlock. This is one of he few films that Golan directed himself. In it, a folk-singing duo is entered in the WorldVision music contest of the future (1994) and they have to fight the temptations of drugs, sex and rock and roll, before their savior arrives at the end in a white car. It has a dozen songs with dreadful lyrics and the religious symbolism is so heavy-handed as to be silly.
