One of the great thrills of appreciating retro pop culture is delving into the campiness and cheesiness of bygone eras. Over the years, io9's "found footage" series has featured hundreds and hundreds of weird clips from movies and TV shows, plus other cultural detritus. Like the above clip, which comes from The Humanoid.
Here are some of the absolute campiest and most ridiculous moments from old movies that we've dug up. Warning: A few of these clips are NSFW, and are labeled as such.
Here's what we wrote about the above clip: The Humanoid stars Richard Kiel ("Jaws" from the James Bond movies) as a super-soldier — who decapitates like eight guys by throwing one pylon in this clip. It also has some of the best Darth Vader dialog ever, a robot dog named Robodog, a psychic Jedi-child, and an evil queen who has to absorb the juices of one topless young fashion model every day to stay young. The directors of Star Crash and The Humanoid had an undying rivalry, that endured 23 years later, when one of them was working in a gift shop. The Humanoid was directed by "George Lewis," the pseudonym for Aldo Ladi, who also directed 1975's slasher Torture Train.
