Black Bikers from Hell (1970)
The Black Angels

Nomination Year: 1998
SYNOPSIS:  Two rival gangs, divided along racial lines, have a very tense truce in the town. The film tries to paint the leader of the white gang as at least somewhat compassionate and philosophical, but fails. The White gang is betrayed by one of its members, who, it turns out, claims to be Black (even though he looks about as Black as Robert E. Lee). All-out war ensues, involving a cougar and some snakes (don't ask). In the end, everybody dies, throwing into sharp relief the horror of violence, or something. The town's conniving sheriff looks on approvingly. Did he plan the whole thing? We'll never know, because by this point we JUST DON'T CARE.

Worst Special Effect

Evel Knievel He's Not
The fatal jump, where the "chopper" tries to jump the, uh, pothole and fails in a burst of rotten special effects.

Smithee Award Winner! Crummiest Ending

The Cougar, the Snake, the Song, and the Long, Dark Gang War of the Soul
Final fight scene with cougar and snake. It's long. It's tedious. It's long. It's confusing. It's long. And somewhat lengthy.
