So bad they're good!

Post by andrewkempster on Sun Aug 29, 2010 11:42 am

I'm a sucker for crap horror movies that obviously don't take themselves that seriously. They're just so much fun. The eighties and early nineties were full of them.

So, I'm gonna throw this out there and see if anyone else loves them too.

I watched The Dead Pit the other day. A girl with amnesia, a mental hospital, an undead psychotic doctor, zombies. It's like One Flew Over The Cuckoo's nest, only it makes you want to cry for other reasons.

Killer Klowns From Outer Space! Def

I love those things as well. Nothing better than an intentionally campy, stupid horror movie. Pure brilliance.

I caught this one on videotape at a friend's house about twenty years ago. It is called "Bloodsucking Freaks", it stars a dwarf named Ralphus who has a taste for fried eyeballs, and...it is in a class of its own. That is all I will say. unsure

I saw a really serious (but shitty and hilarious) semi-student movie called The Shatter Dead some time ago. All I remember about it was a shower scene with a rough looking pregnant chick. At some point she gets shotgunned by some dude and ends up delivering the baby through the wound. Freaky and crappy all at the same time!

Of course, I've heard Piranha 3D is a knowingly bad piece of trash excellence...

Cheers,
Rich

And the collection continues!

I now have Night Of The Comet, The Stuff, Children Of The Night, and Waxwork. Classics.

Oh, and I picked up a copy of In The Mouth Of Madness, too - NOT a shitty film in my opinion, but deserves a mention. Very very VERY good.

All of those, with the exception of Children of the Night which I didn't care for, are wonderful, pure 80s cheesetastic goodness.

If you are into great cheesy flicks then let me point you to Shout! Factory and their awesome Roger Corman's Cult Classic line. I've been very lucky to get them for review and man, do I love, love, LOVE them. Humanoids From the Deep, Piranha, Death Race 2000, The Slumber Party Massacre collection (all 3 flicks), Galaxy of Terror, and more. Great blood, beast and booby packed fun, all of them.

That one we'll have to agree to disagree on. I hated it back in the day, and while I have warmed up to it a little bit over the years, I still don't like it much.

EVIL DEAD 2 is okay...I love THE EVIL DEAD. It was gloriously cheesy and unintentianlly funny...then after that they went for laughs on purpose...and it sort of lost some of its power in that.

IMO.

I totally agree, only I'm not so sure they didn't know they were funny. I just can't imagine them watching it when it was done and not rolling with laughter when he's fighting his hand.

You misunderstood. They KNEW they were funny in EVIL DEAD 2...it was made and played for laughs.

EVIL DEAD (I) was played fairly straight...campy but straight and the funny was a dark funny....not amped up slapstick like 2 and to a greater extent 3 employed.

Troll 2. Watch it with friends and alcohol/sugar/massive amounts of caffeine. Just for reference, it isn't actually a sequel.

A great doc to go along with Troll 2 is Best Worst Movie all about...well guess. Wink Let's just say that the documentary is aptly named.

Got ya Shiney. A fine difference, but looking back it seems I always go for that type of film, darkly funny and taking itself seriously, like Fright Night, one of my favorites.
