Really bad and therefore great (horror) movies

Hi,

Recommend me some fantastically bad movies (mostly horror/gory I guess) that are so indescribably bad, horrendously stupid, over the top bloody, and enormously stupid plot-wise, that they become a parody of their own, and therefore become great movies to watch with the buddies, over chips and beer.

Examples:
Machine girl
Jesus Christ vampire killer (not gory, but fits the rest)
Black sheep
Mega shark versus giant octopus (this one may have been too boring to fit the description)

Thanks!

Re: Really bad and therefore great (horror) movies

Campfire Stories (2001) – Not to be confused with Campfire Tales (a decent anthology horror film). This movie was so over the top bad I would actually put it on par with Manos or Plan 9. It has Jamie Lynn Sigler (from Sopranos) proving that someone has nude photos of her and apparently Charlie Day and Rob McElhenney (from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia)

Certainly the worst movie of this millennia.

Why has no one mentioned "Killer Clowns from Outer Space"

Classic.

Charlie Day and Rob McElhenney in a horror movie? Sold! I'm a huge bad horror movie fan and a huge IASIP fan.



If I were to add anything to the list, maybe...

Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation(the plot makes NO sense whatsoever and Matthew McConaughey is gloriously over the top)

Cutting Class

Don't go expecting Always Sunny, this is a bad, bad, bad movie. As Ranger Bob (Buster Poindexter) says as the moral of one of the stories: "You see- right when you think you got life by the balls, you kill an Indian and he steals the life right outta ya."

I haven't watched this one in YEARS, but when I was really young this was an awesome scary movie.

Sorority House Massacre 2

Classically bad. Classically great!

Sample dialogue:

Sorority Girl 1: "I can't find Janie anywhere!"

Sorority Girl 2: "Janie?? Janie??"

Sorority Girl 3: "See!"

Boa vs. Python. Some friends and I used to rent the worst looking straight-to-dvd horror flicks we could find and this is the only one that stuck with me. Horrible on every level and hilarious if you're in the right mood.
