Robot Holocaust (1986)

How bad is it? It's unbelievably inept and cheap.
Should you see it? Yes. It's a personal favorite of mine.
It actually looks even more like just an arm in a sock in the movie.

Shot on video by Tim Kincaid, who's made several bad films, this one starts after the title holocaust is over, in a world with one city ruled by "The Dark One" and his tremendously overacted assistant Valaria. Rebels, including a Conan-like muscleman, a whiny amazon, a stupid Mad Max-type warrior and a silly guy in a bad robot suit, take a perilous journey that includes hand puppet sewer worms, just the claw of a giant spider, an Alien-ripoff stomach-bursting monster, the room of questions, the pleasure machine and the vault of beasts. The effects are terrible. The dialogue is terrible. The acting is beyond terrible. Everyone involved obviously knew they were in a turkey, but stayed just this side of self-parody and "look at me" theatrics.
