1. Killer Klowns From Outer Space

A truly ridiculous movie. This is a very popular b-movie as its so bad it is funny, not many Clown Horror movies are actually funny. The plot is simply an ship of alien clowns lands on earth and start to terrorise the locals. It is a comedy horror so don’t expect the darkest most disturbing movie but just a ridiculous bit of cult entertainment. Think cotton candy coccons, balloon hunting dogs and ridiculous over the top clown costumes.  If you are into cult and b-movies then this is worth a watch, but if you are looking for just a good movie then maybe best to avoid this particular title.

Killer Klowns From Outer Space is currently available on the US Netflix If you already have Netflix you can access this movie on Netflix by using a VPN service with a free trial and setting your location to US.

2. The Evil Dead (1981)

It’s not really fair to class the original The Evil Dead as a bad movie. However, I have included it in this list as by today standards it is very dated and over the top with gore and ridiculous acting that it will make a modern audience laugh, if this was made today it would be classed as a comedy. The plot is quite simple, 5 friends go to stay at a remote cabin only to accidentally release a bunch of demons from a book. The whole movie is basically them getting possessed by demons and having to kill them by whatever means necessary. The movie has had sequels and remakes as well as a Netflix series with the original main actor which I am currently enjoying. This is a classic horror and a must watch for all horror fans.

3. Murder party

Murder Party is a nice little indie movie well executed and original. I have included in this list as it is low budget so some bad acting and hilariously bad graphics. That is as far as I can say about it being bad as it actually a very entertaining and funny watch. The story is about a man who finds an invitation for a Murder Party. The invitation is sent form a group of psychotic killers who didn’t really expect anyone to show up. The maniacs start to have internal conflict and a trail of killings begins in ridiculous gory mess of a movie.

4. The Car

The Car is a very exciting classic cult horror with little more to the plot than a car than is somehow possessed by evil driving itself round killing people. Many have criticised it as being nothing more than a Jaws on wheels with little depth to the story. However, it is very entertaining with plenty of hilarious out of date acting and filmography. A must watch for any cult horror fan.

5. Mad Ron’s Prevues from Hell

Prevues From Hell is a not really a movie, it is just a documentary film which features our host Mad Ron as he takes you through clips and trailers of cult horrors. The movies he introduces are all the terribly bad hilarious movies you are probably looking for if reading this post, that is why I have included in this list.

6. Tales From The Hood 2

A sequel to Tales From The Hood but that is not on Netflix, it doesn’t really matter as these films are a collection of short horror stories, kind of like a modern Creep Show. The acting is too much the stories are weird, the host is bit of a clown and I cannot tell what is suppose to be horror and comedy. However, despite it all being quite poor I found myself wanting to keep watching it. I am not sure why but I guess that makes it qualify for this post.

7. Christine

6.774Netflix – UK

If you like The Car then quick spoiler, this is pretty much exactly the same. This is a John Carpenter movie so big things were expected. Although as good as The Car still entertaining in many ways, This time the car has not just a name but also more of a personality as it becomes obsessed with its Kid owner, as jealousy and obsession turns the car into a killer. Overall it is a very enjoyable watch and probably under-rated, my only real criticism is that it is not an original idea.

Christine is available to watch on the UK Netflix. If you are unable to access your UK account use a VPN to watch anywhere in the world.

8. Anaconda

A “National Geographic” film crew is taken hostage by an insane hunter, who takes them along on his quest to capture the world’s largest snake, only to turn out that they are the prey not the snake. What I find so enjoyably bad about this 90s movie is it was made in the era when they could not decide between robotics or CGI, so the sudden jump from slow robot head to poor CGI reminds me of the hilarious graphics used in shows such as Red Dwarf. Having said that it is a fast action packed movie so very enjoyable to watch just a poor story and poor actors. To get the most from this movie approach it as though you are cheering on the Anaconda and not the other main characters.

Anaconda is available to watch on the UK Netflix. If you are unable to access your UK account use a VPN to watch anywhere in the world.

9. Invaders from Mars

Unfortunately this is not a comedy or spoof of the original 1950s classic but a serious remake. The image above shows the dorkiest looking alien not at all scary. the plot follows a boy as he tries to stop an invasion of his town by aliens who take over the the minds of his parents. With the aid of the school nurse the boy enlists the aid of the U.S. Marines. If you approach this movie in the right mind set it is hugely enjoyable and worth a lot more than IMDB or Rotten Tomatoes has given it. See it as a cheesy bit of entertainment not a serious movie and you will have a blast.

Invaders from Mars is available to watch on the UK Netflix. If you are unable to access your UK account use a VPN to watch anywhere in the world.

10. Humanoids From The Deep (1980)

Humanoids of the deep is a 1980s film that is more like a 1950s script, human experiments back fire when half man half fish terrorise a local village by murdering the men and raping the women. Even for the 80s this film is a little to trashy and sexual, if made today it would probably be outcast-ed. Cheesy, entertaining and a real modern taboo it is definitely a good watch, albeit controversial and out-dated.

11. Arena

I watched this movie a few years back as it kept showing up on my Netflix, I am not sure how but none the less i gave it a go. The plot seemed promising, kind of like a space age gladiator where different species would fight to the death in the arena. A budget movie with some hilarious looking aliens. What i liked about the movie is not that it delivered in terms of action or story but the creativity of all the alien costume designs. If you want an easy to watch movie to play in the background that will easily make you forget about a hard day at work then this will do the job.

12. The Island of Dr Moreau

The Island of Dr Moreau is about a man who shipwrecked on an island that he discovers is inhabited by creatures that turn out to be horrible human/animal creatures gone wrong from scientific experiments. This film is clearly a poplar HG. Wells story as it has been made several times with this being neither the first or last version of the movie. The story is a highly regarded story from Wells and this is probably the most popular film version.
