Funniest Extremely Bad Horror Movies

by emertens | created - 17 Jan 2012 | updated - 28 Oct 2017 | Public

This list is about the worst horror movies ever made. Movies so bad they became "good".

Humour is a rather personal thing. So most of the movies I've added are those which I personally think are funny in some way - and this primary because of their badness.

As of August the 17th 2012, I cannot post (or reply to) comments anymore, because I don't have, nor do I want, a Facebook account.
