Awful but watchable

I popped into Poundland the other day to get another low budget horror film and I came across 'Killjoy'...why not? I though. Well, I could give you a thousand reasons why not to watch this film but I could also give you a few reasons to watch it: The actors: most of whom have only been in this...pretty much sums up how good the acting is. The "special effects": Windows Movie Maker? The plot: barely worth mentioning. However, if you put all these reasons together you get a film that is so bad it's good - a cliché but no other term could describe this film - it's definitely worth watching for a laugh if not for the actual quality of the film. Don't get me wrong, it's not worth much more than a few quid but it is worth viewing.
