Horrible Horror Movies to Watch For Halloween
With Halloween coming on Tuesday, it could be a good weekend to watch some Halloween movies. Sunday could be a great day to stay indoors because of the heavy rain and possible snow in higher elevated areas. But what to watch?
Instead of the classics like The Exorcist or Nightmare on Elm Street, how about some classically bad movies to get you into the Halloween spirit.
Here are some HORRORable alternatives. You probably haven’t heard of the movies but you’ll know the actors.
Gingerdead Man: It’s not a misspelling, it’s “GingerDEAD Man.” Gary Busey plays a convict who has his soul transferred to, you guessed it, a gingerbread man. He becomes an evil villain. Today he looks more like a zombie then a evil villain in real life.
It cost about 2,000 dollars to make. Watch him drive a car, watch his mouth barely move when he speaks. Nothing says quality quite like gingerbread man special effects. They made a sequel for Christmas called “Gingerdead Man 2: Passion of the Crust.”
The Happening: This movie ended M. Night Shyamalan’s career. It’s a “environmental thriller” that starred Mark Walhberg. That’s what I want for my Halloween fright flick, a thriller involving the environment.
Watch Mark attempt to bargain with a plant. Watch a fight scene with lions at the Philadelphia Zoo, but it’s fought like the Black Knight scene in Monty Python (It’s just a flesh wound)…Now I want to watch Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
Finally it’s Plan 9 from Outer Space: Yes, you’ve heard of this one and it’s probably the worst movie ever made by one of the worst directors, Ed Wood. It’s one of those movies that must be seen to be believed.
Flying saucers with visible strings, Boom mikes in the scene and an actor that died during production who is replaced by an actor that looks nothing like him and holds a cape to cover up his face.
Before you die (I’m using my scary voice), you must see this film.
If this list isn’t enough, go here to fill your bucket list of bad Halloween/Horror flicks including ”
Horror movies to watch that will leave you in disbelief (as in, I can’t believe they made this). Grab some popcorn, because you probably won’t be grabbing anyone else during the movie.
