This week I'd like to try something a little different. Instead of me yakking away on your computer screen, complaining about and mocking the worst of the horror movie sludge pile, I'm going to ask you to do it.
Most if not all horror geeks have this guilty pleasure. Everyone loves a good movie, but we also love watching the bad movies. The ones that have every trope and cliche in the book. That make no sense. That have characters whose IQ wouldn't let them pass a third grade math test. Phones have dead batteries and/or no service. Screaming, mostly naked young women run into closets instead of out of the house. Actual plot is replaced with boobs and blood.
Grab a handful from this pile of crap, a bunch of friends, and several bowls of popcorn, and you've got an excellent Halloween planned.
My personal favorite bad horror movie is Sorority Row, in part because I was actually in a sorority. It happened every October (and several other times throughout the year): we'd cram into the living room of our tiny house barely big enough for eight people to live in, share several packages of Oreos, and laugh at everything so wrong in this awful movie. Especially the opening scene: who in their right mind keeps a trampoline in their living room for the sole purpose of half-naked pillow fights?
So what's your favorite bad horror movie? Let us know in the comments!
The first Dragons, Zombies and Aliens blog was started in 2015. Somewhere between college coursework, paying rent with door-to-door sales, and keeping up with my sorority sisters, I wrote reviews, rants and commentaries on books, TV shows, and movies. Now, this blog has moved, improved, and the sky's the limit!
