It’s October, the time of the year where I watch scary movies either early in the morning, or from behind my husband’s shoulder at night. But there are some movies that are so ridiculously silly they can’t even scare me. I mean, really, Leprechaun?
The Killer Shrews
Just the title. Killer. Shrews. At first glance, one would think it’s about a bunch of loud women on a killing spree, which you gotta admit, would be a lot scarier. No, this movie is about actual shrews and how they kill. Oh, and making them GIANT shrews does not amp up the terror.
I first saw this movie on Mystery Science Theatre 3k, which took any potential scariness right out of the picture.
The GingerDEAD Man
Man, I’m laughing at the damn trailer. And Gary Busey. Why not just throw a glass of milk on this b*tch? Shoot, water worked for those aliens in Signs and I was way more scared by them!
The Wicker Man – Remake with Nicolas Cage
Nicolas. Cage. Need any more be said? Between his scary hair, amped up acting and…running around in a bear suit…I stared at the screen with my mouth half open with disbelief or simple shock. A ridiculous movie.
The Shaft – with Naomi Watts
This movie is about a killer elevator. Enough said. Also, Ron Perlman is in it.
What are some of your favorite “scary” movies that make you laugh? I could use a few more to add to my collection so leave them in the comments. Boo!!
