The Dark Side of the Moon (1990)

Nomination Year: 2002
SYNOPSIS:  While on a routine mission to repair a nuclear missile satellite on the Lunar farside (odd place for a nuclear missile satellite, if you ask me), repair ship Spacecore 1 loses power. Then what comes drifting by but the space shuttle Discovery, missing for over 30 years. They board it only to find it empty save for a hold full of sea water and a single fresh corpse. And then members of their own crew start dying. Now, they have to fix their ship and figure out what's going on before either they all die or the audience leaves the theater in disgust.

Most Ludicrous Premise

The Bermuda Triangle, Explained at Long Last
The Bermuda Triangle is actually a plot by Satan to capture the souls of unwary sailors. And it's also directly equivalent to an area on the dark side of the moon.

Crummiest Ending

A Novel Approach
The hero tries to kill Satan with a nuclear missile. Does it work? What do you think?
