10 80s Movies That Are So Bad They’re Good

Are there any super stupid movies from the eighties that you still watch? You're not alone. Redditor u/nerdgothbuddhist asked for “80s movies that might suck, but you love them anyhow.”

They elaborated, “What's a movie that you know is scene is not suitable for whatever reason (acting, budget, cringe stuff that aged badly) but you love it anyway, forever?” Reddit responded, and these are the ten movies they still cherish despite the cringe.

Redditor eatingganesha admitted, “It was awesome! I saw a late showing in the movie theatre, and when we walked out to the abandoned mall parking lot, we all looked at each other and wondered if it was just a movie.”
