Freeway Maniac (1989)

aka Breakdown

How bad is it? It's pretty amazingly bad.
Should you see it? Yes. It's one of the more entertaining bad films.

Written by Gahan Wilson, this makes fun of low-budget filmmaking, while being one of the worst-made low-budget films; how much of this was intentional is hard to say. A boy kills his mother and her boyfriend, escapes prison as an adult and gets stopped by an actress who parlays the notoriety into a role in a sci-fi film being shot in the desert. He then escapes again and hunts her and the film crew. Funniest scene involves eating a rattlesnake. There's a cheapo wooden spaceship and rock monster, a plastic bear claw attack, a chainsaw attack, a fall broken by a victim's belly, visibly breathing dead people and some awful 1980's clothing (including a plaid suit) and hair.
