“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds."

The Vegetable Monster from Outer Space (1995)
How bad is it? It's a Brazilian basement film. Should you see it? No. Not that it's likely you'll find a copy.
Deservedly obscure, this Brazilian film is about a friendly alien from a planet of legumes, looking for a mate, so he can create a hybrid vegetable/meat race as a way of ridding the world of violence. He gets captured by an evil scientist and is imprisoned with another victim (whose name translates to "poop"), but they escape and go on a killing spree - which makes no sense, except as a "Coffin Joe" homage - with a lot of bad gore, including a very fake bottle attack.
