    Anyone who tries that is really dumb or a mutant.

    They're spinning their tires.

    It may be impossible for an intentionally bad movie to gain cult status. I just watched Best Worst Movie which is about Troll 2's runaway popularity. Apparently, the makers must genuinely try to achieve a good production. In the case of Troll 2, everyone tried really hard, put all kinds of heart into it, but the planets aligned to cause a beautiful mess: the director was (and still is) an eccentric deluded enema bag, he and his wife writer were terrible at English as a second language and too stubborn to realize it, the actors were either horrible or psych patients or both, budget problems crept in, etc. Same with Ed Wood; he thought he was creating good movies, but personal and financial struggles held him back. If you go in trying to make something horrible and succeed, what is there to laugh at? No one laughs at success.

    It's amazing how Manos (which was made on a bet) has more heart and soul invested in it than some of the modern 100 million dollar bombshells.

    It's obvious; you chew it up and pour the goop in your right eye.

    Definitely concur. MST3K wouldn't have wasted their effort on Sharknado, and I doubt Rifftrax will either. It's all about the attempt to create art rather than the deliberate manufacture of stinky dross.

    The only exception I find with that rule is the Scream series. It's been a while, but didn't the series start out as an attempt at Police Squad! style humor only to turn serious?
