The line that divides horror and comedy is often very thin. Check out this list of 15 horror films with titles so ridiculous that you won't believe that they're actual movies!


1. Chopping Mall (1986)

A group of teenage mall employees stay after closing for a night of partying. But little do they know that the mall's new state of the art robotic security system will malfunction, locking them inside with a murderous robot that will stop at nothing to destroy all the "intruders".


2. Death Bed: The Bed That Eats (1977)

A demon creates a cursed bed that consumes the bodies of anyone who sleeps in it. This surrealist horror film follows the haunted bed through generations as the body count grows!


3. Evil Bong (2006)

The title might just say it all, but in case you need a quick synopsis: A group of stoners respond to an online listing advertising a possessed bong. When smoked, the sentient water pipe traps its user in "The Bong World"- a surrealist world filled with terrifying and hilarious monsters that torment them.


4. Killer Klowns from Outer Space (1988)

What could be more terrifying than a group of evil clowns? What about intergalactic evil clowns? This B-horror movie is about a group of aliens that appear like circus clowns and have a taste for Earthling flesh!


5. A Scout's Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse (2015)

After a viral outbreak turns an entire town into a legion of zombies, who do the remaining survivors have to count on? The police? The military? Try a trio of boy scouts and their new friend: an exotic dancer. Will the unlikely group be able to save the day?


6. ThanksKilling (2008)

Everyone loves a feel good holiday film. Why not check out this Thanksgiving-themed horror movie about a possessed turkey that has been stalking and killing unwitting victims for centuries? Be prepared for enough Thanksgiving puns to last you a lifetime!

The third installment in a series about a bloodthirsty gingerbread man. In this movie, the gingerbread man travels back in time to the 1970's to wreak havoc on a disco-themed roller rink. Maybe this is how disco died?


8. Santa's Slay (2005)

What's the worst thing that can happen if you make it on Santa's naughty list? A family of wealthy but unlikable dignitaries find out on Christmas Eve when a demented Santa Claus comes down the chimney and kills them all in elaborate ways.


9. Killer Tomatoes Eat France! (1992)

An evil scientist bent on world domination escapes prison and finds himself in France. With the help of his legion of anthropomorphized killer tomatoes, he lays siege to Paris where an out of work actor and his new love interest take charge to save the day.


10. Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead (2006)

A satirical horror film about a fast food chicken restaurant built on a cursed burial site. Naturally, the restaurant and its employees are attacked by a legion of undead zombie chickens that will stop at nothing until they exact their revenge on the fast food employees.


11. Rabid Grannies (1989)

After being left out of the will, an estranged family member curses two sweet old grannies, causing them to transform into ravenous cannibals, eager to dine on the remaining family members who are attending their birthday party.


12. Monsturd (2003)

A serial killer on the run from the police after escaping from jail descends into the sewer where he is exposed to a toxic chemical that transforms him into a human sized poop-monster. You'd think that might slow him down, but he is going to bring a whole new meaning to "the runs".


13. Attack of the Killer Donuts (2016)

After a chemical contaminant accidentally finds its way into the frying oil at a local donut shop, a group of college-aged slackers have to fight off an army of sentient, bloodthirsty donuts with razor sharp teeth.


14. Birdemic: Shock and Terror (2010)

In this extremely low budget independent horror film, an army of poorly rendered CGI birds (that spit acid and explode on impact) descend on the small town of Half Moon Bay as two new lovers try to outrun the murderous birds and save the day. If it sounds more or less exactly like The Birds (1963), it's because it is exactly like The Birds.


15. Werewolves on Wheels (1971)

While driving through the desert on a cross country road trip, a group of bikers stop off at a mysterious church to kick back, party, and have a rest. But after falling into a drunken stupor, the bikers become unwitting participants in a Satanic ritual that transforms them into werewolves!

Ha-ha, awesome! I put them on my Halloween list movie night.

Most of them are pretty funny! Almost all of them are super low budget and cheesy, so if that's your thing, you should enjoy them!

Oh my, I don't know if I wanted to laugh or be very scared by these movies. I have never watched any! Should I? I have to admit sometimes I like watching cheesy and low-budget horror movies that come randomly on tv. LOL.
