PTU Top 5 Best Worst Horror Movies
Recently a few of us at PTU decided it would be a good idea to check out some of the best worst horror movies one Friday while drinking some beers. You might wonder what a best worst horror movie is? Generally speaking it is one of those movies that seems like a bad idea to watch, has bad acting, terrible special effects, and a weak plot. For some reason, it is so terribly bad you can't stop watching it and at the end you somehow don't feel like you just wasted two hours of your life.
Why only five? Because even someone like me who loves these types of movies can only think of five worth listing. Top 5 list after the jump, bonus points if you can guess which movie in the top 5 is featured in the picture above.
5. Santa's Slay
Okay, so I'll admit I never saw this movie. However, it has Goldberg playing a killer Santa, a cool play on words for a title, and it is available in widescreen. I'm sold.
Just look at the movie poster and you'll understand why this makes the top five. It does have it's slow spots, but it features some key best worst horror movie features including gratuitous nudity, terrible acting, and a killer turkey murdering a guy wearing a turkey suit.
3. Killer Klowns From Outer Space
This movie is a classic. If you haven't seen it, it should be moved up on the priority list of your life. I don't think words can do it justice.
2. Troll 2
(If you guessed the main pic in this post was Troll 2, you can now claim your bonus points).
Troll 2 is a rare disaster. It was directed by an Italian guy who barely spoke English, leading to some ridiculous dialogue. The plot revolves around ancient trolls who like to feed people vegetarian meals so they turn into trees that the trolls can eat. Also, the poor child actor who starred in this movie went on to produce a movie about Troll 2. Not surprisingly it is called "Best Worst Movie." There is too much to cover here, but this one has some classic scenes including the one where the kid pees on the family dinner to stop them from eating vegetables.
1. Leprechaun in the Hood
To start, this movie has Ice-T in it starring as a hustler who finds a magic flute in a basement and becomes a big hip hop star. Any time he plays the magic flute, crappy music sounds great. Also, this movie includes overtly stereotypical portrayals of almost every group of people and the Leprechaun repeatedly smoking weed.
If my poorly worded summary doesn't make you want to watch this movie, just check out the video below:
