So Bad, They’re Good: Scary Movie Edition

As we get older, many of our expectations get higher. Especially when it comes to scary movies.

But finding a movie that has the perfect mix of gore and fear isn’t easy. Most people can name 10 bad scary movies before they can name one good one. Well, I’m pleased to tell you that I have found the best solution to this scary movie conundrum: a list of scary movies that are so wonderfully terrible that you can’t help but want to watch them.

1. Child’s Play (1988)

This is arguably one of the worst, yet best, scary movies out there. If you haven’t seen it, you are missing out. In Child’s Play, a mother gives her son a doll for his birthday. But this doll just so happens to be possessed by a serial killer. The movie itself is creepy, but you can’t help but laugh at the things that happen.

2. Zombie Strippers (2008)

Should I even care to explain? The name should pretty much tell you everything. In this movie, a zombie epidemic breaks loose at a strip club. As the ladies in the movie continue to perform, their zombie ways get some of the guests in trouble.

3. Tucker & Dale vs. Evil (2010)

This movie is awfully amazing. Two hillbillies, Tucker and Dale, are on vacation in their mountain cabin when they are attacked by preppy college kids. But the encounter isn’t like anything they ever expected. Things get a bit bloody, but you will love it!

4. Hood of Horror (2006)

Don’t get me wrong, I love Snoop Dogg. But this movie was something else. This is the type of movie that makes you think about your actions and where you’ll end up because of them. If you’re not sold yet, watch this trailer.

5. Cabin In The Woods (2012)

This movie wasn’t great, but it wasn’t bad either. I mean what would you expect when the plot is about five friends who go out to some remote cabin in the middle of the woods? Things are going to go down. Honestly, just watch it. I promise you’ll enjoy it by the end.

6. Halloween (1978)

The ’70s was filled with so many scary movies that just kept getting worse and worse. Halloween was one of those. The plot sounds great, but the execution of the movie is pretty comical. In the movie, a six-year-old boy stabs his sister to death and gets put into a mental institution. Fifteen years later, he is let out, but has deadly intentions.

7. Rubber (2010)

I honestly can’t even begin to explain the nonsense in this movie. Rubber is about a homicidal car tire (I’m not even kidding) that discovers its powers and sets its sight on a mysterious woman. It is one of the worst movies I have ever watched, but I can’t help but show it to other people. It’s surprisingly funny and sinister. Definitely give this one a try!
