“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."

Ombis: Alien Invasion (2013)
aka Not Human
If you watch this (and you shouldn't), you'll find yourself thinking of films that did the same thing, only better, including "The Blob." A meteor hits a dying rural town and turns people into green slime monsters. then there's a visit from a space algae cowboy (not as interesting as that sounds), who seems to be in control of it. It's up to the townsfolk to fight back. Made for a reported $32000, none of it went to professional actors; almost everyone's performance is painful to watch. The special effects are quite bad. The dialogue is stilted enough for occasional chuckles.
