    This. Though you'll probably need to watch it multiple times.

    Night of the living dead trilogy - You might class it as horror Doug I class it as comedy
    Snakes on a train although I've never seen it, it must be worth a go lol

    Dont know many Sci-Fi ones that I can think of anyway

    hit up any episode of mystery science theater 3000 for some extra laughs at b-movies that you cant actually watch the whole way through.

    What about the Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy?

    I seem to remember that Space Cowboys was cool, but I can't remember what it was about.

    You cannot have a B movie thread with no mention of Plan 9 from Outer Space. Come on!

    Also, for pure English madness you have to check out Psychomania. I had to get the DVD from America bizarrely, but the BBC does show it on occasion in the middle of the night, when they think no-one is watching. This link gives a pretty accurate description of the film:

    :clap:

    Also, what kind of B movies are you getting into? You seem to be veering away from Horror which I guess rules out the Troma films? Is it Sci-Fi? 50s? Modern? [edit]Just seen your main post update, what about the Russ Meyer films, or are you looking for just sci-fi?[/edit]

    Guyver (aka mutronics and has Mark Hamil in it and is a seriously cheesy B-Movie),

    Guyver 2 (takes itself a bit more seriously than the first one)

    ED3: Army of Darkness is brilliant (and is definitly more of a comedy then a horror)

    Cheers for all the reccomends, I've got 35 titles queued on lovefilm now, I'd only seen Evil Dead before and I found it to be a quite boring horror. I've been informed 2/3 are the comedy versions.
