Interzone (1987)

How bad is it? It's a knowingly bad film, one of the worse post-apocalyptic films.
Should you see it? Yes, but don't plan on paying attention for long. Try it as a Teaganathon with "Alienator" and "Sinbad of the Seven Seas."

This is one of the worst Italian rip-offs of "Mad Max," produced by Joe D'Amato and starring no one you've heard of, though bodybuilder Teagan Clive is featured heavily and Laura Gemser has a small uncredited role. The entire plot: monks try to guard a treasure from marauding warlords. There's a lot of 1980's bad hair and bad clothes, a soundtrack and sound effects that make the dialogue unintelligible in places and extras that are so bad that they obviously miss or anticipate cues. It's fun for a while, but it's mostly chase scenes and weapons being fired and it all grows tiresome pretty fast. Though it's another hard to find VHS film, it seems to have gathered a cult following.
