Too Many Cooks (2014)

A series of montages that parodies the introductory title sequences of generic 70s, 80s and 90s TV shows of various genres slowly turns into an absurdist meta slasher and then the parody becomes even weirder.

If I could give it a zero, I would.

This is easily the worst thing I've ever seen. It was worse than "The Heart, She Hollers" and that show is just terrible. It isn't even a show - it's just fifteen minutes of 80s/90s era opening credits which includes a creepy serial killer randomly lopping people's heads off with a machete. A has some off the wall programs like "Your Pretty Face is Going to Hell", "Lucy, Daughter of the Devil", "Metalocalypse", "Superjail", "Aqua Teen Hunger Force", and "Squidbillies" which are all pretty bad in their own right, but at least they have an edge and some semblance of a plot that makes them work. But this "show" is just bad on bad.
