Let’s face it – the horror genre might be responsible for a lot of horrible films. Thankfully, the internet has provided us with the best worst clips from horrible horror films so we don’t need to spend our money on them. If you’re looking for a fun night without cheesy comedys on the other hand, these will definitely leave you grinning.

In no particular order, here are 10 of my picks for the most ridiculous horror films ever made.

Travis and some of his glorious creations

Filmmaker, writer, YouTuber, ‘unhinged bastard’. Travis Betz, 36, is a household name in many indie-horror circles, famous for his films The Dead Inside, Lo, Sunday and Joshua. His films, which can be described as mashups of genres blended into a melting pot of horrific fun, have all been well-received by the public and critics alike, some even considering his films as possible cult classics. His YouTube videos have also created a buzz since his first video, Count Me from 2006, a video Betz explained came to be as a result of boredom whilst working as a receptionist (hence, his YouTube username, The Receptionist)


With the final episodes in Season 3 of The Walking Dead approaching, reruns are right around the corner. This is the perfect opportunity for those who have not watched The Walking Dead for some reason (for your own sake, I hope it isn’t because of the PTC  still arguing that the show is too violent) to start doing so.

Here are 10 reasons why you should watch it:


In the days after the premiere of the Evil Dead Remake, which has been well-received by those fortunate enough to see it, many fans worry that the horror genre, already filled with remakes and sequels/prequels will be filled with even more.

Most old-school horror fans will probably gasp at the mention of anybody loving a remake more than the original. Personally, I believe some films just turn out better when they’re re-made.

Here are some of my favourite remakes.


Here’s a sad, but equally true fact – I am infatuated with zombies. A metaphor for the industrial collide of people wanting to be the same, perhaps. A metaphor for the burned out student, sleepwalking to class in yesterday’s beer-drenched jacket and with his eyes glued to his phone…more likely. That, or I just like the idea of people being eaten up….by society, maybe. By others, more accurate, and despite my efforts into trying to create some cliché poetic reason for my fascination with the living dead, I honestly can’t sincerely say there’s something meaningful behind this fascination. Some people just like things that make them uncomfortable, in a good way.
