Trancers 6 (2002)
Trancers 6: Life After Deth

Nomination Year: 2009
SYNOPSIS:  Imagine you wanted to make a Trancers movie but couldn't get Tim Thomerson, what would you do? Okay, you'd probably say, "wow, if my movie's so bad Tim Thomerson won't be in it, clearly I need to go back to the drawing board." This, my friend, is why you don't make bad movies. If you were a REAL bad movie maker, you'd take a little stock footage of Tim Thomerson from previous Trancers movies, ineptly splice it into new dialog, and then cast a 20-something girl to take over the part. This creates some controversy -- ballot bimbo Jenna calls Zette Sullivan, the new Jack Deth, a low-budget Summer Glau and one of the worst actresses to grace the CRT screen. Your Statistician agrees she's terrible, but notes that she's terrible in EXACTLY the same way Tim Thomerson is. Is she really an awful actor, or is she merely doing a brilliant impersonation of an awful actor? Sadly -- if unsurprisingly -- trying to figure out the answer to this question is by far the most interesting part of the movie.

Best One-Liner

Was that "Death" or "Deth"?
Jack gets the drop on the jerk who stole her smokes and lectured her about the dangers of smoking: "Did you know that being an asshole is the leading cause of death in men and women?"

Smithee Award Winner! Worst Special Effect

"I want out of this movie!"
A trancer goes out the window. His flailing body is composited onto a still of a building exterior, and the camera's tilted in order to produce an illusion of falling. This is the worst falling effect since Witchboard. Also the cheapest.
