"Canuxploitation is a film genre that encompasses B-movies made in Canada, especially those produced throughout the late 1970s and early 1980s to take advantage of government tax incentives. Often derided or outright ignored by Canadian critics and cultural historians, these horror, science fiction, comedy, action and exploitation [films] present viewers with a film legacy that challenges a traditional understanding of Canadian movies as either languid art films or happy tales of Prairie life." 
Source: Urban Dictionary

Which of these relatively unknown* (pre2000) Canuxploitation horror films best deserves a Rifftrax commentary track?

LIST: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls094168491/
POLL: 


*Under 10000 IMDb ratings; IMDb average rating no higher than 6.0; Films that were never given a previous Rifftrax commentary track.

Tsar,

Ya sure you betcha, these Canuxploitation Flicks collectively scrape the bottom of the barrel.
Cannibal Rollerbabes (1997) seems like a suitable candidate for a Rifftrax commentary track.

Love that I could rule out Rock 'n' Roll Nightmare (1987), which was already given a proper Rifftrax treatment.

I just noticed that the first Food of the Gods wasn't keyworded as Canuxploitation. I'll add it to their keyword page since the sequel has it attached. Both films (at least by their respective YouTube reviews I've watched) seem to deserve a proper Rifftrax commentary track.

If you would change the votes to 25,000, a lot of really low rated stuff would get in.
This has the 6.0 rating but it has a little over 15,000 votes.
I think it would make a great addition.
Canadian Bacon (1995)

I'm aware of Michael Moore's film. And I also limited it to horror films. 
 
Just because a film is Canadian and bad, doesn't necessarily mean it's Canuxploitation. I'll keep the vote ceiling as is ... because of the amount of qualifying films would skyrocket to about 78 entries.

Thanks though.

Rifftrax is over-expensive, I can buy two decent 5$ movies at Wal-Mart for the price that they sell me 1 bad commented movie.
