10 Turkeys?? 1960s

Having done some IMDB research, these were the 10 reasonably well known films from the 1960s with the lowest ratings:

Manos: The Hands Of Fate (1966)
Monster a Go-Go (1965)
The Beast Of Yucca Flats (1961)
The Creeping Terror (1964)
The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living And Became Mixed-Up Zombies (1964)
Eegah! (1962)
Body In The Web (1960)
Orgy Of The Dead (1965)
I Eat Your Skin (1964)
Monstrosity (1964)

Do these films deserve these low ratings or are they unfairly maligned? Is there a film from this decade infinitely worse?

Next four decades to follow in the Modern section.

Well, of course they're awful, but they're also entertaining to watch.

Manos has to be seen to be believed.

I LOVE Manos!:D

I've seen The Creeping Terror and Monstrosity, but none of the others.

You would love Eegah as well, I believe. It's tongue in cheek, but even so, there's enough disturbing subtext to make one wonder WTH the filmmakers were thinking...

You were right. A lot of fun, and kind of sleazy.

Teenage Zombies is another one, and also Ed Wood's movies. They are so bad they are good.

Goodness I haven't seen any of these. I actually see The Raven as a bit of a turkey though it is fun to watch.

The Creeping Terror is actually pretty cheesy entertainment.

Bit tough, the call on The Raven. It's a true 60s classic entertainer with a stellar cast.

I appreciate there is a stellar cast as you say and the original poem features hevily-however to me it is so ridiculous and silly that I see the film as a complete joke.

You are a complete hypocrite-when I say the same thing about 1980s films in the other thread-you, V, Roshiq and Angra gang up on me. But when you say it here no one says anything. I hope everyone else on the forum see these two threads.
