It is an film so bad it is so good. It has a 0 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It has a 2.4 rating on IMDB and is No. 85 on the Bottom 100 films of all time.
But that's not why I'm writing this post. It is a Mets blog, after all. While I watched it, I noticed in the son's room, there were sports banners all over the walls. A Darryl Strawberry pennant hung near Joshuas's bed and a New York Mets banner over his mirror by the door.

Well, the movie was filmed in Utah in the late '80s and was released in 1990. It was written and directed by an Italian couple, with an entirely Italian crew for a just hundreds of thousands of dollars - quite a small amount for a "feature" film.

I even tweeted to one of the film's actors to ask...
@AndrewVazzano That's a damn good question. No idea— Jason Steadman (@jasonsteadman) March 31, 2012
We may never know the answer to this question. We may never know how such a terrible movie was made. And we may never know why so many people - including myself - have come to love this film for just how bad it is.
But, please, go watch this movie. It's the best worst thing I've ever seen.
