Title: What modern B Movies will become classics?

Out of curiosity my fellow Leeches, what films of the 2000s-2010s do you think will be inducted into the B-Movie canon of "classics" like the works of Charles Band, Roger Corman and Bert I Gordon, which Sy-Fy originals and direct-to video schlock do you think will be remembered as epically, awesomely cheesy (Think Death Wish 3 or Puppetmaster) or stupidly, hillariously cheesy (Think Troll 2 or Plan 9 From Outer Space)?

I think people are going to remember Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus for a long while.

For some reason I think the Human Centipede and its sequel are gonna be lingering for awhile through the gross out factor alone.

Personally, I think that the Grindhouse films and their spinoffs (Machete and Hobo With A Shotgun), as well as most of Steven Sommers ovure will be remembered as Hollywood B-movies. And, though it might be wishful thinking, I have a hunch that Drive Angry will become a cult classic.

Hobo with a Shotgun is not a hollywood film and it is genuinely great.

I still desperately need to see Hobo With a Shotgun.

True, I accidentlly lumped it in as "Holl;ywood" due to its (somewhat tenuous) connection to Grindhouse. But it does look awesome.
Another film that I can see becoming a B-Movie classic of the 2000s is Mansqyuito, mainly because that name is so iconically "B-Movie" that I think it'll stick in people's memory for a long time.

Sharktopus, at least I really hope so. It has a really stupid feel to it that will probably make it popular.

Agreed. I haven't seen it yet, but I can't help but have a feeling that movie has the potential to be a cheesy classic. It's about a giant shark/octopus monster created by the Navy to use as a weapon, for god's sake, and it even has a theme song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kSc1NhsbytQ
THE SHARKTOPUS CAN'T BE KEPT AT BAY! AND YOU WILL NEVER EVER EVER GET AWAY!

I haven't heard of it. What do you think is a reason it's gonna be a classic? I also think that, i nthe future, Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter is gonna be well remembered for the name alone.
