As much as I love horror movies, I’m always the first to admit that there is no other genre that contains the highest crap-to-gold ratio. However, there a few gems that are so ridiculously bad they must be seen to be believed.
If you’re particularly masochistic, Netflix doesn’t discriminate when it comes to quality, meaning that the best bad horror movies are right at your disposal. Use our free Netflix coupons then kick back with a couple of open-minded friends, and prepare to laugh (or cry):
“Garbage day!” This trashy, Christmas-themed slasher flick spawned a pretty hilarious meme and continues to be a favorite among bad 80s movie lovers to this day. My favorite scene involves a rather unfortunate use for an umbrella. You’ll know it when you see it.
Oh boy, where to start with this one? A sequel in name only, Troll 2 is about a family besieged by vegetarian goblins (I’m not kidding). There’s one scene where the kid tries to protect his family from a deadly meal by, um, peeing on the dinner table. It’s so notoriously terrible that a documentary about its cult status was eventually made, called Best Worst Movie.
This completely bizarre Stephen King adaptation about an alien invasion is horrible on nearly every level. The cast is great, but everything else is a disaster. Between the alien with the British accent, the out-of-place toilet humor and Morgan Freeman’s eyebrows, watching this movie is not unlike watching a gibberish elementary school play performed by adult actors.
I’ll summarize this horrible remake in one sentence: Nicholas Cage investigates an island full of mysterious women, dresses up as a bear and punches everyone in sight. As awesome as this sounds, trust me, it’s not.
I suffered from terrible second-hand embarrassment when watching this. This is the movie that cemented M. Night Shyamalan as a quack. Worst part is, the premise (people around the world suddenly start killing themselves) is creepy, but every other aspect of the film destroys it. Mark Wahlberg delivers something that the human brain cannot recognize as a performance. He speaks, he walks, he runs, but he does not ever act. Just watch this scene. Or this one.
