Bunkazilla UK is launching our first charity live stream event this Christmas with Andrew “The Raggedyman” Watton-Davies putting himself through the torture of watching up to 5 Uwe Boll films in one day to raise money to Crisis UK.
Clearly not learning from his experiences of previously watching Love Actually & Cats and both the Mamma Mia films to raise money for charity; The Raggedyman, the “brains” behind Trash or Treasure, is orchestrating The Uwe Boll Ball this Christmas. He will, along with brave members of the Bunkazilla Team, watch one Uwe Boll directed movie for every £200 donated to anti-homelessness charity Crisis UK (details on the charity below).
This will be done live, with no breaks, and without the aid of a safe word.
For those of you lucky enough not to know who German filmmaker Uwe Boll is; he is renowned for being one of the worst directors in cinematic history. This is thanks to his infamous habit of taking solid video game properties and transforming them into terrible movies, that may well exist more because of German tax laws than because of any artistic merit or commercial success. The average IMDB rating of the films chosen by the Bunkazilla team is 2.7/10, with the highest being 3.1/10, whilst their combined Critic Rating on Rotten Tomatoes is 9/500 . This is not “so bad they are good” or post-modern-irony watching, this is a cinematic endurance marathon. They are relentlessly, monotonously, irredeemably bad, and how many of these The Raggedyman will watch live on the Bunkazilla UK Twitch channel on the 27th of December is up to YOU!

The main live stream event takes place on Sunday 27th December 2020 from 12:00pm over on our Twitch channel at twitch.tv/bunkazillauk. You’ll be able to watch the live reactions of Andrew and the team as they “enjoy” Uwe Boll’s masterpieces during the day. Please note, the Raggedyman will be live the whole time the ball lasts and only be allowed to leave for short loo breaks. As long as the money is rolling in then he will start a new movie every two hours, so to fill the gaps it’s likely that the co-hosts will swap donations in return for him doing silly things on camera for your amusement.
Please note: The stream itself won’t feature any footage of the films but you can join the fun as well with your own copy of the films being watched and hitting play when instructed to by our hosts. If you miss the start, we’ll also have a runtime counter going so you can catch up.
