7 horror movies that are so bad they’re good

Dumb plots are par for the course in the horror genre, but these are spectacularly bad
Zombeavers (2014)

What do you do when the market is saturated with human zombie movies? You turn to animal zombies, like the filmmakers of this B grade travesty about undead, wood-gnawing beavers who mutated following a chemical spill. Just add teenagers in bikinis and a lakeside cabin. Yawn.


Rubber (2010)

It’s a movie about an abandoned killer tyre called Robert who has some serious issues. Robert, who suddenly and inexplicably comes to life in the desert, realises he has the power to destroy anything in his path – and basically goes rogue. As road movies go, this is absurd in the extreme.


The Happening (2008)

After years of pollution and global warming, plants are releasing toxins that make people want to top themselves. There’s really nowhere to go when your scare factor revolves around killer plants, but at least we have Mark Wahlberg playing a terrified science teacher. At one point, he even begs a pot plant to spare him (it later turns out to be plastic).


Teeth (2007)

A teenager who grows up next to a nuclear power plant realises she has developed a set of, er, teeth in her nether regions. While ridiculously hilarious, we’re not going to deny that this woman-scorned horror also has the makings of a cult classic.



Black Sheep (2006)

A genetic engineering accident on a Kiwi farm turns sheep into bloodthirsty serial killers. So yep – you can expect all the gory entrails and then some. We gotta say, though, the mutant sheep are pretty funny though, so it’s not all baaaad. (Sorry, we couldn’t help ourselves.)



Jack Frost (1997)

Nothing says lame like a serial-killing snowman. Seriously, did no one think to boil the kettle and chuck it over him? By the way, this is not to be confused with the Michael Keaton movie about an absent father who is magically reincarnated as a snowman. Although we’re not going to rush to suggest you watch that either…



Attack of the Killer Tomatoes (1978)

Oozing fruit and veg going on a rampage – and taking on the establishment? We agree, it’s dumb. That said, Killer Tomatoes got such a following it spawned three follow-ups including Return of the Killer Tomatoes (1988), starring a young George Clooney! We might pop this one in the so-bad-it’s-good pile. Squish power!
