B-Movie fans, this is for you. As a lover of cheesy films, MST3K, and RiffTrax myself, I know how it is. Those movies are downright awful, but you love them. You love the bad acting, poor film quality, corny dialogue, cheap effects, and nonsensical plot.

A lot of people would pay anything to own memorabilia from their favorite pop culture: such as Indiana Jones' whip, Katniss Everdeen's Mocking Jay pin, or something Steamboat Willie-related. While those things are all well and good, we'd rather spend our money on more important things - iconic items from our favorite B-movies. (Plus, since no one else cares, these things are cheap, or quite possibly free!)

So, if objects actually used on set of these cheesy movies went up for sale, which one would you want to display in your case? I guess you could call these items memora'B'ilia! Ha ha ha!... sorry.

Thank you; it appears that Christopher Lee has been in lots of cheesy movies, including "Starship Invasions" from 1977.  Have you seen it?  I have not.  Please let me know if there is an "iconic" or featured object in the film. :)

Yes i have seen its not bad but poor Sir Christopher lee hated it.

Narnia,

My vote:
The Aliens' Bright Purple Uniforms from Plan 9 from Outer Space

I would also like the flying saucers from  Plan 9 from Outer Space
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0052077/mediaviewer/rm1114589696
Plan 9 from Outer Space 1959

For your consideration:
A tingler from The Tingler (1959)
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0053363/mediaviewer/rm2267651584
The Tingler 1959

It would also be fun to have a tingler equipped movie theater chair.

Dan,
I've only seen a few minutes of the Tingler... could you tell me what it was/what object it was?  Thank you!

Narnia,

The object is a rubber prop used as a tingler in the movie. A tingler looks like a centipede. A tingler emerges from a person when subjected to extreme fear.

Great idea! Some of those actually ended up in private collections and/or were replicated by eager fans through the years!

I choose a movie from my native country, and the prop I choose is that superjagged sword.

You can probably build one for yourself from plywood, though.

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0182060/mediaviewer/rm594950656

From the list, I'd choose Manos' hand-ornament onesie or the belt from Puma Man, which I watched on the big screen as a kid. You could also add poor Donald Pleasence's costume from that movie as well.

Oh, and anything, literally anything from Mark Gregory's post-apocalyptic bike gang films. There was one leather jacket with a skull on its back, too bad I couldn't find a photo on the web, but I could swear the skull was drawn by a 6-year old.

Hi, Ardan!  Thanks for the comment.

I just added some more and there's still 15 spots left.  I will add more later!  Which Mark Gregory movie is the jacket from?  I'm assuming it's either Escape 2000 or 1990: Bronx Warriors.
