Horrible Halloween Movies to Watch This October
By Sidney Shuman
My favorite Halloween culture consists of truly bad horror movies. You know, the kind where you just cannot believe someone got a budget to make them. They make you laugh, they gross you out, but more importantly they make you want to share the absurdity with all of your friends. So have at it, fledglings, and get into some atrocious movies this October. Here's my top five list of terrible, yet completely watchable, horror movies worth your time. This list is a countdown, from bad to positively horrendous:
5. Schrooms (2007)
This horror flick follows the experiences of 3 couples that go to Ireland on a camping retreat and experience the effects of hallucinogenic mushrooms. When the drugs begin to kick in, so does the terror of the story they were told during their travels to the woods. Overall, this is a weird and hilarious movie revolving around couples and drugs.
4. Return of the Living Dead: Rave to the Grave (2005)
A college student creates a new drug called “Z” and distributes it throughout campus for a rave. Everything goes terribly wrong when the drug starts making the students turn into zombies. All I can promise is a ridiculous amount of laughter.
3. Cat Women of the Moon (1953)
Originally being made for the 3D craze in the 1950's, Cat Women of the Moon follows two male astronauts and one female astronaut who are traveling in space. They end up on a planet filled with cat women whose only goal is to kill the male astronauts and convert the female astronaut to a cat woman. The makeshift special effects and the awful script really make this movie so bad it’s good.
2. Gingerdead Man (2005)
Gary Busey stars as a gingerbread man who is possessed by the spirit of a serial killer. If that does not convince you to watch the movie immediately after reading that one sentence, then do not worry about watching this one.
1. Troll 2 (1990)
This movie is not a sequel; it is just entitled Troll 2. It is about a little boy (Joshua) and his family visiting a town that is inhabited by plant-eating goblins. In order to escape these beasts, Joshua’s dead grandfather’s spirit tries to help him out of the sticky situation. Can Joshua and his family be saved? You will only find out if you can tolerate the terrible script, acting, and special effects.
