The Best Of The Worst

I have covered some of the best horror movies ever made in a two part series, as well as some greatest unknown horror movies. Now it's time for the very best of the very worst. There are some really horrible movies out there. Some of them are intentionally bad, and some, despite their best efforts, end up just being awful! I love a cheesy horror movie as much as the next person, but there are limits to what even I can deal with. I know there are many more terrible movies out there, but these are some of the very worst that I have ever encountered. Once again, this list is in alphabetical order. There is no way to quantify how rotten these movies really are. If you have any suggestions for other terrible horror movies, feel free to share your comments. I am always looking for wonderfully terrible movies to add to my list.

1: The Beast of Yucca Flats (1961)

Some of the worst horror movies ever made have been featured on Mystery Science Theater 3000. This movie is one of those movies. About a defecting Russian scientist. The unfortunate scientist gets hit by a blast from a nuclear test and is transformed into a horrifying monster. The movie stars Tor Johnson (former wrestler) as the scientist/Beast. The movie was filmed in silent, and voice-overs and sound effects were added later. The result is a movie where the picture and sound are poorly synchronized, and the characters only speak when their faces are off camera or are less visible due to darkness or distance. Ever watch a movie where the sound and the picture doesn't line up? It's kind of like watching a dubbed Godzilla movie. The "action" scenes are laughable, at best, and the effects are pretty bad, even for that time. There really isn't much else to say about this movie. It was just really bad...really, really bad.

2: Blood Diner (1987)

What can I say about this movie? That's right...it's terrible!! Two brothers own a health food diner. They are aided by the animated brain and genitals of their uncle in a terrible plot. They kill unsuspecting women, in an attempt to get all the required parts that they need for a blood feast to resurrect an ancient Egyptian goddess. How terrible is this movie? Well, there is a scene where the brothers go into a topless aerobics class and gun down everyone in the place. A horrible horror movie just isn't complete without some unnecessary nudity.

3: Book of Shadows: Blair Witch II(2000)

First off, some will say that The Blair Witch Project was a terrible movie. In many ways, it was. In other ways, it was innovative, creative and different. It wasn't a great movie, but it was a great concept, and really took an interesting approach to movie making. Book of Shadows, on the other hand, is just dumb. To start with, the writers couldn't even come up with creative names for the characters, and just took the actors names and changed them a little. The story is simple enough, as far as sequels go. The characters are interested with the story of what happened to the three filmmakers that went missing, so they set off to investigate. They take a Blair Witch tour, and end up camping out in a house for the night. The plot is incredibly thin, and the actors are mediocre, at best.

4: The Creeping Terror (1964)

What can you say about a movie that had to be narrated in post-production due to the fact that all the audio had been lost, and the budget did not allow for re-recording it? Aside from that issue, the movie uses reverse stock footage of a spacecraft taking off to depict an alien craft landing on the planet, and has a monster that looks somewhat like a carpet-covered version of a Chinese dragon, or someone walking around in a really dirty sleeping bag. The effects are terrible, the plot is awful, and the narration is strange. The narrator frequently skews off topic, rambles on, and seems, at times, to have little to do with the actual movie. The Creeping Terror has been called by some, the worst movie ever made. It is one of the worst I have ever seen. I watched it knowing full well that it was going to be terrible. Sometimes, you just have to watch really bad movies to see how bad they really are.

5: Dr. Giggles (1992)

Dr. Giggles stars Larry Drake, (best known for his mentally handicapped character on L.A. Law) as Dr. Evan Rendell. Rendell is a psychopath who escapes from a mental institution to seek revenge on the town that caught his murdering father. Like father/like son...I guess. The murders all have a surgical element to them, and as he murders his victims, Dr. Giggles lets out a creepy, high-pitched giggle, that by the end of the movie is more irritating than nails on a chalkboard. Of all the movies about a crazed escaped mental patient, this is one of the worst I have ever seen, and there are a lot of bad ones. This movie made me wish there was a deranged psychopath on the loose to put me out of my misery.

6: Halloween III: Season of the Witch

I love the Halloween movies! All of them, except for this one. Michael Meyers is an iconic horror villain...who has no role in this movie whatsoever. So, why is it a part of the series? Your guess is as good as mine. This movie stinks on so many levels. It is called Season of the Witch, but there is no witch. The movie is about a company, called Silver Shamrock, that sells Halloween masks. That doesn't even make sense, but very little in this movie does. The head of the company has a sinister plot to kill thousands of children with cursed Halloween masks. Some say this movie is underrated because it is the only movie in the Halloween series without Michael Meyers in it, but I disagree. I dislike it for more reasons that that. Maybe the movie would not be as bad in my mind if they had called it something else, and kept it out of the Halloween series, but then again, no...it's still terrible.

7: Hobgoblins (1988)

Another movie covered by Mystery Science Theater 3000, is the truly awful Hobgoblins. In fact, the director of the movie is the one who submitted it to MST3K, and MST3K's writer called it one of the worst movies ever made. Hobgoblins is about a bunch of little aliens that kind of look like darker, furrier versions of the evil gremlins. They go around killing people by fulfilling their greatest desires. Of course, every horrible horror movie has to have unnecessary nudity and sex, and this movie is no different. The plot is your typical B-movie ridiculousness. For some reason, which is beyond my understanding, they made a sequel to this movie.

8: Hood of Horror (2006)

I have to start off by saying that I love Snoop Dogg(or whatever he has decided to call himself now), I really do. I hate this movie, though. It's really bad. Sorry, Snoop!!! Despite having a decent cast of actors, including Ernie Hudson, Danny Trejo, Billy Dee Williams and Jason Alexander, the three stories of terror that make up Hood of Horror are just bad. The stories are more like episodes of Tales From the Crypt set in the inner city. Snoop Dogg, as the Hound of Hell, sits in as host, instead of The Cryptkeeper, but other than that, it could have been a few episodes of the show slapped together.

9: House of the Dead (2003)

Based on the arcade game of the same name, House of the Dead is about zombies. I love zombie movies, by the way, and I love the House of the Dead games, especially House of the Dead: Overkill. The movie, though...it's just awful. In typical horror movie fashion, a group of teens arrive at an island in order to party it up at a rave. How many times have we seen that premise? Unfortunately for them, the island is overrun by zombies. The movie is beyond bad, with scenes from the game spliced into the live action scenes of the movie, and deaths that end in video game fashion. This could have been a great concept, but fell flat. Of course, this movie also features a mindless plot, terrible acting and pointless nudity.

10: House of Wax (2005)

House of Wax has one redeeming quality. Paris Hilton dies in the movie, and before you get too upset that I spoiled something in the movie, it happens fairly early into the movie. That was the only good part of the whole movie. House of Wax is a terrible remake of a decent, classic horror movie starring Vincent Price. If you want to see a good version of the movie, look up the 1953 version. It is way better. House of Wax is about a group of teens who stumble upon a creepy wax museum in an abandoned town during a camping trip. The wax figures look so real, and with good reason. The acting is bad, I mean, seriously, PARIS HILTON is in the movie!!!That has to tell you something.

11: Jason X (2001)

Friday the 13th in space! What a great concept, right? No, not really. Being that Jason cannot be killed, he was frozen in order to keep him from killing. He is unfrozen many years later aboard a spacecraft by thoughtless scientists. He continues his reign of terror in the vast expanse of space. The movie is ridiculous! The concept is silly. The movie does have some redeeming qualities. The death scenes are incredibly humorous. There is one scene that cracks me up. I'm not sure if it's supposed to. Jason is in a simulator where he encounters a classic horror scene of two half-naked teenage girls camping in the woods. The way in which he kills them is beyond funny. I will let you see it for yourself.

12: The Leprechaun Movies (1993-2003)

The movie series goes from the first movie, starring Jennifer Aniston (with her old nose), and ends with the terrible Leprechaun 6: Back to the Hood. Yep, the Leprechaun goes to the hood, in two separate movies! What could be better than that? Well, just about anything. The Leprechaun movies follow a stupid premise of an evil leprechaun that kills those who steal his gold, and a lot of times, even those who don't. The character is disturbing only in its laughability. Not one of these movies is any good.

13: Manos: The Hands of Fate (1966)

Coming in at lucky number 13 is another terrible movie that has been covered by the show Mystery Science Theater 3000. This movie is so bad, it has to have been made that way on purpose. Then again, maybe not. It is so bad, you will be stunned at how bad it is. The movie is about a family that starts out on vacation and ends up getting lost, only to wind up at a shack where the residents worship an evil deity named, Manos. The fights between the wives of the Master are really quite hilarious, though I doubt they were intended to be that way. It has often appeared at the top of lists for worst movie of all time.

14: Monster A-Go-Go (1965)

Even the title of this movie sounds bad. The premise of the story is that an astronaut, after a trip into space, crash lands in a field. He is badly affected by radiation and goes on a rampage. Then, he disappears, only after this we discover that that was not the real astronaut. The real astronaut is found thousands of miles away, alive and well. Does any of this make any sense? What a horrible plot! Apparently, the movie was intended to be made years earlier, but ran out of money. The footage was tucked away somewhere, only to be found later, footage was added, as was the wonderful voice-over narration that worked so well in The Creeping Terror. Another horrible movie affected by the constraints of a budget, but still released anyway.

15: Nine Lives (2002)

What is it about Paris Hilton that just makes a movie awful? Oh, that's right...she can't act. The movie is about a spirit that resides in an old Scottish manor. Nine friends show up there to celebrate a buddy's birthday, when the spirit is unleashed. It possesses one person after another, killing along the way. While the premise for the story is interesting, the acting is not. The characters are very one dimensional and flat. The acting is barely tolerable. The plot has holes in it so big you could drive a truck through them.I guess I can't fully blame Paris Hilton for how bad this movie is, but she is a contributing factor.

16: Orgy of the Dead (1965)

A bad movie list would not be complete without at least one Ed Wood movie. Orgy of the Dead is considered by some to be the worst movie he ever made, and one of the worst movies of all time. A couple heads to a cemetery in order to get inspiration for a horror story, only to land in the middle of one, themselves. They are captured by a parade of movie monsters and forced to watch a tedious, never ending dance of the dead. Sitting through this movie is torture in and of itself. Ed Wood has made some laughably bad movies, and this ranks right up there with the best...er, the worst of them.

17: Paranormal Activity (2007)

I know there are people out there that liked this movie. My sister is one of them. I am not. Maybe it's because I actually paid good money to see it in the theaters, and feel like I got ripped off. The scares are minimal, and trivial. The only creepy part is the end. It's like a worse version of The Blair Witch Project set inside someone's house. I left the theater feeling cheated. The character of the boyfriend was not likable at all. I was actually watching the movie, hoping something bad would happen to him. There were some interesting parts, and the premise of the movie was good, it just wasn't executed well.

Crap, complete and total crap
Crap, complete and total crap

18: Plan 9 From Outer Space (1958)

One of THE worst movies ever made!! Plan 9 is another amazingly bad movie from the king of bad movies, Ed Wood. Aliens come to Earth and resurrect the dead to create a zombie army to stop the world from creating a solar powered weapon of mass destruction. With dialogue like "Future events such as these will affect you in the future.", the movie is tragically bad. Cardboard tombstones decorate an incredibly low-budget cemetery. The "spaceship" looks strangely like a hubcap someone swiped from a car, and the string holding it up, making it "fly" actually catches fire. I guess editing wasn't in the budget, either. This is the sort of movie you really just have to see for yourself to see how bad it is. It goes beyond just a bad movie. There is nothing good about this movie aside from the fact that it might be good for a laugh.

19: Psycho (1998)

Shot frame-for-frame exactly like the Hitchcock original, so how can this movie be so bad? Well, it isn't Hitchcock, that's for sure. Why bother remaking a movie, and making it exactly the same, just in color with different actors? I guess there are some out there that complain that remakes are too different from the originals, so they decided to make it exactly the same. It did not work. Nothing replaces the classic. The original Psycho is a horror movie masterpiece. This was a pile of steaming crap. It had a promising cast, a foolproof script, but still managed to be a complete and total waste of time and money. They would have been better off creating an incredibly stupid, campy musical version of the movie. At least that would have been worth watching, if only for the amusement of such an absurd idea.

20: Robot Monster (1953)

A generic title for a terrible movie. What is the robot monster, you ask? Well, it's a guy in a gorilla suit with a diving helmet on his head. I am not joking here. I would not kid about such things. I guess this is supposed to be scary. I really don't see how. The "robot monster" is sent to Earth to capture humans in preparation for an alien invasion. Did the aliens create the robot? Are all the aliens part gorilla/part diver? The "robot monster" manages to destroy all life on Earth in short order, but spends the rest of the movie trying to kill the five remaining people on the planet. His sci-fi ray gun looks like a child's toy, and the other special effects in the movie are ridiculous beyond all belief. Another movie that you just have to see to believe.

21: Soultaker (1990)

Who do you get when you want the look of a big name actor without paying the A-list paycheck? You call Joe Estevez, brother to Martin Sheen. He looks enough like his brother, without costing nearly as much. Of course, you get what you pay for. His acting skills are far below that of his brother. Every family has that one person...Soultaker is about a group of teens that are killed in a car accident. They leave their bodies, realize that they are dead, and are quickly hunted by Estevez's character, the Soul taker. Estevez is ordered around by the very strange looking Angel of Death. This movie lacks any redeeming qualities. The story is dumb, the characters are stereotypical and boring and the special effects amount to something that looks like the glow-in-the-dark bracelets you get from vendors at the fair.

22: Troll (1986) & Troll II (1990)

Troll was beyond bad. Troll II was worse. Troll is about a man who was transformed into a troll by his ex-wife. While I am sure we have always wished we had this power, maybe after seeing this movie, you might reconsider. The troll takes possession of a little girl, and through the little girl, goes about transforming the tenants of the apartment into plant pods. Sonny Bono plays a tenant in the first movie. Troll II has no trolls, so why Troll II? Not sure. Troll II follows a family on a trip that lands them in danger from plant-eating monsters and goblins. A mediocre cast of unknowns only adds to the badness of the film with terrible acting and a stupid plot.

Yes, that's Julia Louis-Dreyfus in the first Troll movie

23: The Worst Horror Movie Ever Made (2005)

What list of bad horror movies would be complete without the movie that titles itself as such? As I said, some movies are intentionally bad. This is one of them. With characters such as a zombie Jesus, a demon made of poop, and a toilet paper mummy, this movie could never be considered good. A couple goes on the run when their friends die during a card game, and encounter scores of strange and ridiculous characters. This movie was so unbelievably bad that they decided that they needed to re-make the movie. The Worst Horror Movie Ever Made: The Re-Make came out a few years later following a similar storyline with scores of new strange characters.

24: Zombie Nation (2004)

A pack of zombie women rise from the dead in order to exact revenge on a crazy cop who has a penchant for killing the women he arrests. I love zombie movies, and while the story sounds interesting, the movie is not. The acting is terrible!! The level of make-up effects is equivalent to me taking some Halloween make-up from the store, and making my face pasty with black circles under my eyes. The movie lacks continuity, seems to jump around, and makes little sense. I could have made a better movie with the video on my phone. It really was a joke. How this movie ever got made is beyond me.

25: Zombie Strippers (2008)

Zombie Strippers is another movie that was intended to be bad. It stars former porn star, Jenna Jameson as a stripper, not much of an acting stretch on her part, yet, still terrible. Robert England (Freddy Krueger) is also in this movie. That made me sad. A virus is released, turning one of the girls into a zombie. This seems to work out well for her, career wise. The other girls become jealous, and decide to become zombies themselves. With scores of horny male victims willingly walking through the door, they don't lack for a meal. The only thing I did really like about the movie was a song by Kazy (a great group from IL) was featured in the movie.

      The Vineyard and Hellgate are two stone cold stinkers from the 80's. House on Bare Mountain, from 1962 I would recommend highly because although it's terrible it's a real hoot.

      ps what the heck is Halloween 3 doing on this list? Now if it was Halloween 6 I could understand.

      I rather enjoyed "Troll." It was comical and had rather good cast, Michael Moriarty, Sonny Bono, Julia Louis Dreyfus, June and Ann Lockhart. It was all in good fun. Too bad the sequel was such a pile of detritus.

      Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl O Rama should be on the list. A bunch of horny college guys played by actors in their 30's sneak into a sorority house to witness the initiation of sorority pledges. They get busted watching the pledges take showers, and as a punishment they have to help the pledges steal a bowling trophy from an alley in a nearby mall. The mall is owned by one of the dads of the sorority girls, who watch as they break into the mall. They find a trophy, and an evil perverted imp comes out when they drop the trophy. Imp kills everyone but 2 characters, who trap the Imp in the trophy again at end of movie. Bad plot, nudity, and horrible acting at it's finest.

      I just watched the entire movie Kiss of the Tarantula. I havent seen the entire movie since 1987. It brought back some truly unpleasant, horrible memories. I found it disturbing when I viewed this movie during the 1970s and 1980s. Its even more disturbing to me watching it today. It was made between 1972 to 1977. The true year it was made is a mystery. All we know is that its a 1970s something movie. The first time I saw it was in December 1977. It stars Suzanne Ling and Eric Mason and was made in Georgia by Daniel Cady, Warren Hamilton jr, and director Chris Munger. Its a combination of Willard, Stanley, Carrie, The Bad Seed, Kingdom of the Spiders, and Premature Burial.

      In it, a girl named Susan Bradley is shown at ages 5, 10, and 15. She lives in a funeral home/mortuary with her undertaker/mortician father, who stands an imposing 7 feet tall. Her father is rhe only person she seems to love. Her mother is a mean woman who hates Susan and who hates her father. Her mother hates Susan because Susan has a fondness for spiders of all kinds, and keeps several large Tarantulas as pets,which the mother finds repulsive. Her uncle, Uncle Walter, is a sleazy, corrupt policeman who is having an affair with Susan's mother. Susan overhears her mother and her uncle plotting to kill her undertaker father. She decides to put a Tarantula on her mother as she sleeps. Her mother wakes and dies from a fear induced heart attack. None of the victims are killed by the bites of the Tarantulas. Rather, they die from fear induced heart attacks or they bang themselves to death on car doors.

      One night when the undertaker father is away, a bunch of teenage delinquents break into the funeral home/mortuary and harass Susan. They kill one of her Tarantulas. She soon gets revenge on them by following them to a drive in and releases several Tarantulas inside their car. When the young people notice the large spiders crawling on them they freak out and two or three of them kill themselves by impaling

      One of the most horrific movies is Break, also known as Viagem Macabra. Its set in the Canadian wilderness and is similar to the movie which started it all, Deliverance, where hikers are attacked, beseiged, raped, tortured, killed, eaten by mountain men, mutants, cannibals, degenerates, deviants, idiots. Other movies where people are attacked in wilderness areas are The Hills have eyes, I spit on your Grave, Carnivore or The Final Terror, Abducted, Texas Chainsaw Massacre,the River Wild, Just before Dawn,etc. In this 2009 movie, Break, a bunch of women ride into a Canadian wilderness. Two disgusting, degenerate dirtbags with guns and knives stalk them, stab them, shoot them, and rape them. These two degenerates are cannibals. There is a nauseating amount of gore. Internal organs and severed limbs are shown. After a gruesome ordeal, the two degenerates are killed. The rape scene is disgusting. This is the kind of movie that raises the disturbing question, "What kind of God allows this kind of monstrous, appalling evil?" This disgusting movie makes me want to throw up. This piece of raw sewage could be added to the list of most disturbing horror movies of all time and is a testament to human cruelty, depravity, degeneracy, and stupid. Its Satanic.

      I actually like Halloween 3. I think people are down on it so much because Michael Myers wasn't in it. If you think of it as a stand alone horror it's not that bad at all. I know I've certainly seen worse.

      Curse of the Black Widow from 1977 is another lousy horror movie with cheap special effects. Cheap but gruesome nonetheless. Human turns into giant killer spider is the silly plot. There are so many horror movies about spiders. Because these animals are often repulsive and gross in appearance, and because many of them are venomous and predatory, its no surprise that many horror movies should star spiders. Movies and tales of giant, man sized spiders may not be just fiction but reality. In South America and Africa, there are unconfirmed reports and sightings of spiders from 3 to 6 feet long across the legs. They are said to hunt and eat human children, pets, small livestock, and small antelopes. These maybe undiscovered Tarantulas. The size and strength of a 6 foot spider's fangs could penetrate clothing and shoes and the volume of venom such monsters carry could kill people. It would be like being stabbed by two daggers tipped with venom. It would be a painful, horrific death.

      Blockbuster and Suncoast videos have a large selection of titles for horror and semi-horror movies. Lionsgate distributor and its Afterdark Horrorfest carry extremely sick and gory slasher movies such as Tooth and Nail. They are fond of showing cannibalism. Lionsgate is evil and immoral. The real world is a horror movie.

      anonymous-- I have seen The Human Centipede. It was graphic, and disturbing beyond what I could handle. I had a really hard time watching it. I have not seen the sequel, nor do I think I will.

      The Human Centipede and its sequel is another repulsive, gross disgusting piece of execrement made by a sick, disturbed mind. From the title I thought it had to do with those venomous, multilegged arthropods. Centipedes are super ancient, dating from 420 million years ago during the Silurian period, Paleozoic era. Some Centipedes have venomous bites so painful its been compared with a gunshot blast, broken bones, and being set on fire. What kind of demon creates such horrors? The Human Centipede movie isn't about these horrible, ancient venomous biting pests but its about a horrible human being who conducts sick disgusting experiments with humans. This deeply sick nutcase abducts several human victims and physically attaches their bodies together forming a human centipede. One victim's anus is attached to the mouth of another victim. So how's that? When one victim goes to the bathroom, the feces ends up in the mouth of the other victim. To whom is this entertainment for? The sick movie makers of this pile of execrement have alot to answer to.

      When it comes to grossness and repulsiveness, John Carpenter's The Thing wins hands down. The Thing is the most nauseatingly, pukingly repulsive monster imaginable. You need a vomit bag to watch this atrocious piece of execrement. Its CRIMINALLY REPULSIVE. This movie should be banned. I cant eat after watching this. What a sick mind this John Carpenter has. He has given the world the most repulsive monster in The Thing and the most diabolical human slasher/killer named Michael Myers of Halloween fame. How disturbed is this man? The Thing is raw sewage and execrement made by a sick disturbed mind.

      Another horror movie thats lousy is the 1976 The little girl who lives down the lane, starring Jodie Foster and Martin Sheen. Jodie Foster is a teenager who lives in an abandoned house. It turns out that her father committed suicide. She killed her mother by poisoning her with potassium cyanide which is among the most lethal poisons known and kills in minutes. This horrific poison kills so fast theres not enough time to get the victim to a hospital. She leaves the dead body of her mother in the cellar. A policeman comes by and asks about her parents. She makes up execuses such as he is busy or he is away or he cant be disturbed. The policeman gets suspicious. A woman real estate agent comes to her house and is suspicious as well. She has a verbal argument with Jodie Foster and decides to go down into the cellar where the dead mother is hidden. The real estate agent screams in horror when she sees the dead body. As she tries to come up, the trapdoor accidentally falls and hits her head. Jodie Foster opens the trapdoor and discovers that the woman real estate agent was killed instantly. This scene is disturbing and it illustrates how fragile and vulnerable the human body is and it illustrates how dangerous the world is. Everyday things such as trapdoors, stairs, garage doors, heavy cabinets, heavy furniture,etc, can become dangerous and lethal under certain circumstances. Young Jodie decides to leave the body there for the time being. The son of the woman real estate agent also drops by the house and is suspicious. He is said to be a pedophile and tries to molest young Jodie. Along the way, she meets a young magician and befriends him. She becomes close friends with the young magician and reveals her dark secrets to him. They both go to the cellar and take the two dead bodies and bury them. The young magician gets sick from the cold. In another disturbing scene, the pedophile son comes into Jodie's house and kills her pet hamster by burning it with a cigarette and throwing it in the fireplace. Its sick. Near the end of this disgusting movie the pedophile son enters Jodie's house for the last time. He seems to have figured out that there has been foul play in this house. He keeps asking Jodie where is his mother? Jodie secretly decides to poison his drink with potassium cyanide. He drinks it and dies. So she killed one or two people. The real estate agent was killed accidentally when the trapdoor fell and struck her head. That was really no one's fault. Trapdoors can be dangerous as this movie illustrates if one is not careful. She calculatedly killed her pedophile son. What's the morale of this story? Latchkey kids? It's a depressing, unpleasant movie.

      The 2005 remake to The Amityville Horror was a disappointment and focused on disgusting gore. The original 1979 The Amityville Horror starring James Brolin is way better and more true to author Jay Anson's novel. Was the haunting real or hoax? Nobody knows as so many different things have been written and said. A young man murders his family in the fall of 1974. A year later in the winter of 1975/1976, the Lutz family move in the house and experience poltergeist activity and ghost activity and are forced to flee the house after a month of disturbing experiences. The 2005 remake strays from the Jay Anson novel by changing the character of Jodie the demon pig to that of a young girl. Why this change? In the original 1979 movie and in Jay Anson's novel, its emphatic that Jodie is an angel or demon who takes on the form of a pig and who converses with Missy Lutz. In one scene the invisible and silent Jodie is seen moving a rocking chair in a room alone with Missy. Missy communicates with Jodie. In another scene in the original 1979 movie, Kathy Lutz looks outside the window and sees two red glowing eyes which are believed to be Jodie the demon pig. In the sewing room houseflies abound in the middle of winter. An infestation of houseflies is an indication of demonic activity. Its believed by some that the Devil or demons can manipulate the behavior of insects to annoy people. One scene which they could have put in the movie but failed to do so is described in Jay Anson's novel when the wife Kathy Lutz looks at herself in the mirror and sees a repulsive old hag. More demonic activity. One possibility that none of the movie versions and which Jay Anson's novel doesn't mention is that George Lutz himself may have caused the haunting by delving into occult rituals and yikes, delving into Satanism. Someone at sometime practiced dark or Satanic rituals at that house. The music by Lalo Schiffrin in the original 1979 The Amityville Horror is impressive. The remake is lackluster and a disappointment.

      A poor sequel for a movie is Look What's Happened to Rosemary's Baby in 1976. In the first movie, Rosemary's Baby from the 1960s, a woman in Manhattan is raped by Satan and bears the Devil's child. Her husband betrays her to a Satanic cult who live right next door in their apartment. Roman and Minni Castavet are the leaders of this Satanic cult. Iits revealed that Roman Castavet is an anagram of Steven Marcato who was the son of Adrian Marcato. Adrian Marcato was a Satanist who supposedly conjured up Satan in the 1890s in the very apartment they are living in now. Satan here appears as a man beast with cat like eyes and long claws. In the sequel, Look What's Happened to Rosemary's Baby, the story picks up where Rosemary is trying to get away from her husband, Guy, who betrayed her to the Satanists. Her Devilish son is named Andrew while the Satanists call him Adrian. So Adrian/Andrew is now 8 years old as the movie starts. The Satanic cult with Roman and Minnie Castavet are shown during a ritual as the movie's title is shown. Dark, sinister music is played. It sounds like a Satanic version of a Christian mass. In one scene, Rosemary is separated from Andrew/Adrian as a bus drives her away. Fast forward a number of years to whern Adrian/Andrew is 21. Adrian/Andrew lives in a casino and the Castavets are present there. It looks like a desert somewhere in the southwest. Adrian/Andrew is a rock musician who has a Christian friend named Peter. Peter senses tjeres something strange with Adrian/Andrew but Adrian/Andrew just shrugs it off and just wants to live a normal life. He is aware of certain things with his parents but he doesn't seem to know that he is the son of the Devil. The Castavets and the rest of the cult paint his face during a ritual and expect Adrian/Andrew to commit a violent act to prove his dedication to Satan. Adrian/Andrew fails to live up to the cultists expectations. Then, right next door in this sleazy casino, loud pounding sounds of heavy metal rock music is heard. Thus has an effect on Adrian/Andrew. Adrian/Andrew gets up and walks over to where the rock musicians are playing along with a bunch of young people dancing to this unholy music. Adrian/Andrew dances along with the young crowd. According to Roman Castavet, this is a sign that Adrian/Andrew is now corrupted. According to the movie, dancing to heavy metal rock music is a sign of being corrupted by Satan. Adrian/Andrew puts on a human looking mask on the back of his head. What does this symbolize? His dual personality? At one point, his face turns into a hideous, blobby monster face. Bizarre sound effects are heard such as a high pitched scream. Outside the casino, Peter is electrocuted to death by Guy. Adrian/Andrew sees this. He sets off to find his father Guy. Unfortunately he is put inside a mental hospital as the authorities mistakenly believe that he was the murderer. A woman comes along and drugs him and rapes him. What?? It turns out this nurse is another one of the Satanists. She is to be the second Rosemary since the first Rosemary disappointed the Satanists. Adrian/Andrew wasn't corrupt enough to satisfy the cultists so they want another Devil baby. Adrian/Andrew wakes up, escapes from his confinement, and witnesses a car run down the nurse who seduced him. The car crashes. Adrian/Andrew opens the door and its Guy his "father." Guy is killed in the crash. The ending of the movie shows Adrian/Andrew running off into the night out of the clutches of the cultists. He is no longer a Devil child. His good side wins over his evil side. The disappointed Castavets are seen inside a hospital. The nurse who seduced Adrian/Andrew is shown to have somehow survived being run over by the car and her baby is intact. She is the next Rosemary who will give birth to the next Antichrist. And there the movie ends. Its a poor sequel but its strength is that it takes itself serious. Theres no silliness in this movie at all. Its not a parody but deadly serious. The whole tone of the movie is dark and somber and the music is effective. A noteworthy scene is when Adrian/Andrew is being pursued by a gang of thugs on motorcycles as he drives off in his sports car. Author Ira Levin wrote the novel to Rosemary's Baby which ushered in a gallery of other novels and other movies about Satanism.

      The Serpent and the Rainbow is based on a true story about an anthropologist who travels to Haiti to learn about zombies. He discovers that a variety of disgusting ingredients are used to create zombies and chief of these is the poison of pufferfish.. This causes a death like state in the victim. The victim is drugged, then buried inside a coffin, then dug up and his memory and will is taken away from him by the drug. He is then made to slave away in the field by the sick person who drugged him. This is criminal cruelty. At the end of the movie Wade Davis is buried alive inside a coffin and a live Tarantula is thrown in with him. Suffocation, claustrophobia, and a venomous biting spider. This is unimaginable cruelty, evil, and horror. Haiti is a horror. Despite it natural beauty there are horrible things in Haiti such as zombies, voodoo, corrupt politicians, malaria, hurricanes, Aids, extreme poverty, lack of sanitation(the place is literally an open sewer), and venomous biting and stinging pests such as spiders, scorpions, and centipedes. The recent earthquake in Haiti has made the country an even worse hellhole than before. Its unimaginably polluted. There lives a large, very aggressive, bad tempered spider in Haiti with a venomous bite which causes severe pain, itching, and headaches. Its venom is lethal to small animals and in mice can can cause muscular spasms or twitching, hypothermia, drowsiness, breathing difficulty, respiratory failure, and death. This is the Haitian Brown Tarantula, a spider so aggressive it raises its huge fangs and strikes at anyone or anything that gets close. These Devilish critters are found all over the island and are a threat everywhere they go. There are actually people who keep these cranky spiders as pets. What kind of dingaling keeps a venomous spider with a bad attitude as a pet? The Serpent and the Rainbow shows the hellhole, horror, and cesspool of trash which is Haiti. Its one of the worst places in the world.

      The monster Destoroyah from Godzilla vs Destoroyah definitely belongs in a horror movie. Destoroyah is pure evil personified and horrible beyond imagining. We can be thankful its not real. There are many other horrible things which are real such as venomous pests such as centipedes, jellyfish, scorpions, wandering spiders, etc which inflict horrific pain and sickness with their venoms and many of these real horrors are super ancient like Destoroyah. Jellyfish for instance are among the most ancient animals as well as the most venomous. Jellyfish originated during the Precambrian era 1.1 billion years ago. Scorpions originated during the Silurian period, 440 million years ago. Tarantulas originated 405 million years ago during the Devonian period. Some kinds of tropical Tarantulas have agonizingly painful venom with bad temperaments. The Orange Baboon Tarantula of Africa is extremely nasty tempered and its bite is said to feel like having a hot electric iron on one's body or being set on fire. One female victim said its bite is more painful than giving childbirth! Thats scary. There are people who keep these horrible animals as pets. Horror movies about venomous animals are common. Centipedes are another primeval pest whose venoms cause unimaginable pain. One movie from the 1980s is about a venomous snake known as the Black Mamba from Africa. Venom is the name of this horror movie and it stars Oliver Reed and Klaus Kinski. A household orders a harmless Black snake for a pet but instead they get a deadly Black Mamba by mistake. What kind of idiot makes such a mistake? The Black Mamba escapes in the household and terrorizes everyone living in it. Two kidnappers, played by Oliver Reed and Klaus Kinski, are intent on getting a ransom of money but are thwarted but are unprepared to deal with a loose lethal snake at the very house they are robbing. The Black Mamba is super fast, super nasty, and its venom is the most lethal in the world. It can kill a hundred people with its venom. The presence of the snake thwarts the kidnappers from succeeding with their crime. Actors Oliver Reed and Klaus Kinski argued and fought with each other during the making of this movie. They genuinely hated each other. Klaus Kinski writes in his autobiography that due to some mishap, the movie had to be filmed twice, or as he put it, "we had to to film the trash anew." Numerous horror movies about spiders and snakes have been made, and at least two horror movies about centipedes have been made. Nature is scary and many horror movies capitalize on this scariness.

      Science fiction movies often overlap with horror movies. Two science fiction movies which can also be called horror movies or semi-horror movies are the original 1954 Godzilla or Gojira with the American English version with Raymond Burr in 1956, and Godzilla vs Destroyer(Godzilla vs Destoroyah) in 1995. Both movies have the dreaded oxygen destroyer in it. In the 1954 movie, a scientist, Dr. Serizawa, invents a horrific device called the oxygen destroyer which destroys all oxygen in the water and which suffocates any living vertebrate and then liquefies its flesh and turning its victims into skeletons. In the 1954 Godzilla, a mutated 50 meter tall Dinosaur with radioactive breath attacks Tokyo. The American version incorrectly states Godzilla's size as being 400 feet tall and as tall as a 30 story building. Not so. The original Japanese version gives Godzilla's true height as 50 meters or 164 feet tall. Godzilla's size varies from movie to movie and varies from 50 meters, 55 meters, 60 meters, and 100 meters tall depending on the movie. Anyway, Godzilla is said to be a dinosaur which mutated and grew and developed radioactive breath becaause of nuclear testing in the North Pacific in the 1950s. Dr. Serizawa first demonstrates the deadly oxygen destroyer on a small scale using fish in a small aquarium. The poor fish are suffocated and reduced to skeletons as the water churns and bubbles. When Godzilla goes on a rampage and the military are unable to stop him, the authorities turn to Dr. Serizawa for help. Dr. Serizawa says that the oxugen destroyer is so lethal that it must never be used and fears it would fall into the wrong hands. Eventually he is forced to use the oxygen destroyer on Godzilla. Serizawa dives underwater and confronts Godzilla. Fearing he would be forced to reveal the secrets of the oxygen destroyer to the public, Serizawa decides to commit suicide and chooses to die with Godzilla. Serizawa cuts off his diver's line and releases the oxygen destroyer. The water churns and bubbles, Godzilla rises to the surface and lets out an anguished roar, then sinks below and turns into a skeleton. The world lost a great man, and a rare species of animal. The movie is dark and somber. In 1995, for Godzilla vs Destoroyah, its revealed that Godzilla, who is 100 meters tall or 328 feet tall in this movie, is suffering and dying from nuclear meltdown. Godzilla glows red and steam is coming out of his body and his radioactive is fiery red and as powerful as ever. While his radioactive breath is superpowerful in this movie, he is physically weak in this movie. In other movies Godzilla lifts and throws monsters and robots weighing thousands of tons whereas in Godzilla vs Destoroyah, Godzilla is so weak physically that he couldn't even get the enemy monster, Destoroyah off his feet. But then again Godzilla wasn't feeling well in this movie and that maybe why he wasn't fighting well. The beginning of the movie when Godzilla first appears in Hong Kong and when the movie's title appears accompanied to music by Akira Ifukube is AWESOME! Its one of the most awesome openings to any movie. Its also revealed in this movie that microscopic, anaerobic crustaceans from the Precambrian era((from 4.6 billion to 545 million years ago) are reviving, mutating, and growing caused by the activation of the oxygen destroyer which killed the first Godzilla in 1954. The Precambrian era was a period of time when earth was anaerobic or hypoxic, suffocating, unbreathable, with boiling mud pools, active volcanoes, methane, ammonia, and with temperatures thousands of degrees hot. The oxygen destroyer simulates the lethal horrific conditions of the Precambrain era. These anaerobic crustaceans grow, change shape or metamorphis, and amalgamate into a single enormous monster. This army of monsters is called Destoroyah as they were revived by the oxygen destroyer. Destoroyah first appears as a group of car sized monsters which resemble a crab and a praying mantis. These creatures are pure 100 percent evil. Destoroyah then metamorphoses into a larger winged flying form and encounters Godzilla Junior who is 40 meters tall. Its a gruesome scene when Destoroyah jabs Godzilla Junior with his mouth and injects deadly micro-oxygen. Soon Godzilla appears and Destoroyah then metamorphoses into its final adult form, a 120 meter tall (394 foot tall) bipedal, winged, hulking behemoth who towers over Godzilla and is more powerful than Godzilla. The transformation of the final adult Destoroyah is awesome. It looks like a demon or a gargoyle on steroids. Destoroyah flies and picks io Godzilla Junior and drops him and nearly kills him. Godzilla appears and confronts the adult Destoroyah. Destoyoyah overpowers, pummels, and manhandles Godzilla like no other monster has ever done. Destoroyah lifts Godzilla and tosses him effortlessly with its tail. Godzilla weighs several thousand tons. Destoroyah is so powerful it can lift a building, or a cruise ship, or a supertanker. Its power is that awesome.. This is one of the few movies where Godzilla does not have the power advantage nor the weight advantage over the enemy monster. Desoroyah is not only more powerful than Godzilla but dominated the entire fight and would have defeated Godzilla if Godzilla didn't die from the nuclear meltdown. At one point, the anguished Godzilla blasts the Desroroyah with his radioactive breath and Destoroyah goes down. Destoroyah than metamophoses into its numerous smaller crab like forms and climbs over Godzilla. Destoroyah then turns again into its adult bipedal gargoyle form and rises into the air. The military shoot it down and kill it with lasers. As Destorayah is killed Godzilla dies simultaneously by nuclear meltdown. Godzilla disintegrates. The final scene shows that Godzilla Junior survived and mutated into another adult Godzilla. The movie ends and theres a requiem of scenes and music from previous Godzilla movies. Both the device the oxygen destroyer and the monster Destoroyah are horrific and scary and belong in horror movies. Destoroyah is said to be at least 2.5 billion years old, way older than the Dinosaurs. This creature is as ancient as life itself and is as ancient as evil itself. Unimaginably ancient, unimaginably enormous in its final stage adult form, and unimaginably powerful in its final stage adult form. Destoroyah is pure evil personified seeking to kill anything and everyone and tries to turn the world into the lethal inhospitable conditions of the Precambrian era. Planet earth during the Precambrian era was as inhospitable and as lethal as Mercury, Venus, Mars, and the moon and an unprotected human body would suffocate and incinerate to death within seconds under these conditions. That in itself is a horror. That is extremely scary. Destoroyah ranks as one of the scariest monsters ever invented. The primeval Destoroyah can exist without oxygen and has existed since the dawn of time. Its hard for the average person to comprehend the enormity of billions of years. The average human mind is awed to paralysis. Destoroyah ranks as the scariest and most horrific monsters ever invented.

      Human freaks and human monsters abound in horror movies. Frankenstein has so many versions but nearly all of them stray far from the novel by Mary Shelley. The Boris Karloff Frankenstein in 1931 is well made but I dislike the fact that the monster just grumbles. In Mary Shelley's book, the monster not only speaks fluently but learns how to read and he does it all on his own since no one, including his irresponsible creator, Dr. Frankenstein, ever bothers teaching him anything and no one bothers providing for his needs because of his physical ugliness and large size. Only a blind man showed kindness to him. This is pathetic. The real monster is Dr. Frankenstein and the idiot human society the monster finds himself in. A cruel, ignorant, stupid, mentally challenged and morally challenged society. In the Boris Karloff movie version, the monster befriends a small girl by the water. The girl throws flowers in the water. The monster decides to put the girl in the water and in all innocence, she drowns. The monster doesn't know that water is dangerous and causes drowning. He is as ignorant as a newborn baby as no one has taught him anything about the world. So he learns things the hard painful way. Everything he learns was totally on his own. In the Mary Shelley novel, the monster doesn't drown a child but rather saves the child from drowning and his "reward" was being shot by some stupid yokel with a gun with a shoot first and ask questions later mentality. The monster desires a female companion and Dr. Frankenstein refuses as he fears the female would also become violent and fears that the two would reproduce and fill the world with monsters. Well he should have thought of that before he started creating. The monster didn't choose to be created in a cruel dangerous world but was given life against his will and has to suffer for the sin of his creator and for the sins of an even more monstrous society. This story illustrates the suffering caused by physical ugliness and deformity. If Dr. Frankenstein had the genius and ability to create human life, then he should be able to 1) make the monster handsome by surgery and 2) he should be able to make a female companion and 3) he should be able to make both creatures infertile or incapable of breeding if he so much fears that they will reproduce. Once he sees that his creation turned out ugly, Dr. Frankenstein just totally shuns his creation and neglects it. What a goof. Why in the first place make the creature ugly? And why not give the creature a facelift and make him handsome or normal looking? Its just common sense and being responsible and being humane. Sadly, Dr. Frankenstein has none of these qualities and is guilty of negligence and dereliction of duty. The sequel movie Bride of Frankenstein again has Boris Karloff playing the monster. A female companion is made and finally theres hope that the creature will find love and happiness. Sadly, it doesn't work out at all. The female monster or woman takes one look at the male monster and screams in fear and will have nothing to do with him. The lonely monster decides to blow up the laboratory with himself and the woman. More disaster and tragedy. I dislike most Frankenstein movies. I prefer the 1818 novel. The movies focus too much on violence and mayhem. I think the movies could be improved if they instead focused on the monster's alienation, isolation, and loneliness. Sadly, society continues to be cruel and negligent to those who are physically ugly, deformed, and different. After nearly two centuries since this novel was published, nothing has changed.

      The name of the hubsite I wrote for is for Buzzbee. I think he's in Australia. Horror movies show the dark negative side/hubpages/buzzbee is no lomger found. His other hubsites can still be found. One of the movies I wrote about on that hubsite is The Devil's Rain starring Ernest Borgnine and William Shatner. John Travolta and real life Satanist Anton Lavey also appear in this movie. The movie was filmed in Durango, Mexico but is said to take place in Arizona. The desert scenery is spectacular and there are ominous shots of an angry sky. Its 1975 and Satanist Jonathan Corbis has returned after being burned at the stake in 1680 Massachussettes. Now 295 years later, Corbis is after a special book held by the Preston family. Mark Preston is played by William Shatner. The movie starts with a painting of the Garden of Earthly Delights by Heironymus Bosch accompanied to the moaning of the damned in hell and to sinister music. Mark Preston comes home in a rainstorm to his mother. A car comes outside and Mark sees who it is. This is just a distraction as the satanists kidnap his mother and they hang his granfather upside down. Preston then sets off into the desert takimg with him Corbis's book and a handgun. He finds an abandoned ghost town. Ernest Borgnine as Jonathan Corbis meets him and its a showdown between Corbis and his satanists and Mark Preston. Preston enters inside the Satanic church and finds his mother already converted to satanism. Many of the satanists have holes for their eyes or they are eyeless. Preston loses to the satanists. His God is weak or uncaring and Corbis takes advantage. Preston shoots a few satanists and they ooze goo from their bodies. Its a frightening scene as the hooded robed satanists chase Preston and corner him just outside the church. Preston is overpowered and also converted to satanism by torture. Meanwhile, relatives of Preston go lookimg for him and his mother. Julie Preston is a psychic and in one scene she sees Jonathan Corbis being burned at the stake during the witch hunts in 1680. Corbis then transforms into a ram headed demon (or is this Satan? Corbis gets back his book but there is a globular device called the Devil's Rain where the souls of Corbis's victims reside in. Mark Preston decides to take it and smash it. All of a sudden, a rainstorm falls inside the satanic church and the entire coven melts into puddles of goo. The ram headed demon or satan also melts. It seems as if Corbis and his satanists have been defeated. Not so. In the final scene, when the psychic woman Julie embraces her husband Tom the husband slowly transforms into Jonathan Corbis. Corbis laughs an evil laugh and Julie becomes another one of his prisoners. Corbis and his satanists win in the end. God is silent and absent in this movie as in real life. The beginning of the movie shows the painting of the Garden of Earthly Delights and the sound of the damned moaning. "Help. Get me out of here." can be heard among the moaning and wailing. At the end of the movie, Julie Preston is shown trapped and screaming for help. This movie illustrates that the Devil and evil rules the world and that people are largely helpless. Nearly everywhere theres a satanist in this movie. The satanists here use physical torture to convert people into satanism.

      I Spit On Your Grave sounds very similar to Last House on the Left. It covers similar subject matter. In regards to your question about your blog/hubpages. If it was on HubPages, try logging into your account. If you deleted it, then all the hubs you wrote would be gone as well. If it was at a different site, I am not really sure.

      The movies Salo-120 Days in Sodom and I Spit on your Grave are two disgusting movies. They are beyond disgusting. In Salo-120 Days in Sodom, a bunch of rich bastards kidnap 18 teenage boys and girls and subject them to torture for 120 days. They are molested, raped, sodomized, beaten. They are forced to eat human feces. In the other disgusting degenerate movie I Spit on your Grave, a woman is terrorized and raped by four dirtbags in tbe woods. She later gets revenge on them and kills them. She hacks off the genitals to one of them. Theres alot of bloodshed and the scenes of violence and torture are gruesome. A sequel to this disgusting movie was made recently and its even more disgusting than the original. In one scene the woman inserts fish hooks into the eyes of one of her attackers. To whom is this entertainment for? Anyone who enjoys such movies should ask themselves why and should get psychiatric help. Why make movies about rape? And how does a woman have the ability to turn the tables on her attackers? The police are conveniently missing and unable to do anything so the victim decides to take matters into their own hands. The hunted becomes the hunter and the hunter becomes the hunted. The victim becomes hunter and the predators become the victims. I Spit on your Grave is sort of similar to Deliverance. If the attackers are a bunch of degenerate hooligans and rapists, then its alright to kill them. This is the message these movies are sending. Its still disgusting cruel and horrific and I cannot stomach watching these movies. I have written for another hubsite recently. His name is Buzzbee. I cant find the particular blog I wrote for him. I wrote some 24 blogs about various horror movies such as Kiss of the Tarantula, Salo-120 Days in Sodom, the Sentinel, Centipede Horror, the Amityville Horror, the Serpent and the Rainbow, The Devil's Rain, etc. The hubsite is called Horror movies show the dark negative/hubpages/Buzzbee. I dont know why this particular blog was removed. Do you know how I can find it? I write about horror movies as social commentary. I hate horror movies but I like to write about them. As I wrote before horror movies and horror novels touch upon two disturbing issues which have preoccupied my mind for years:the issues of evil and suffering in the world which are two of the most horrible mysteries. These are subjects which cant be ignored. Sad to say, real life is a horror movie and history is a horror movie. There is evil nearly everywhere throughout all history and prehistory. "I see evil everywhere," says Father Lamont from Exorcist 2 the Heretic.

      Thank you for including my comment. While Im not a fan of horror movies I like to write about them as social commentary. The issues of evil and suffering in the world are two of the most horrible mysteries and have preoccupied my mind for years. Horror movies and horror novels touch upon these disturbing issues. Kiss of the Tarantula has mostly obscure actors with the exception of Eric Mason who played the sleazy uncle and who gets buried alive inside an airtight coffin. Mason did other movies and many TV shows. This movie exudes death with its funeral home/mortuary atmosphere and coffins and undertakers. Being buried alive is even more horrific than being bitten by large biting spiders. Its hard to imagine a worse fate and there are many many things in the world that cause suffering and death. The movies Outbreak and Coma deal with the horror of disease. Ebola, coma, cancer, tooth decay, heart disease, malaria, typhoid, aneurysm, meningitis, rabies,etc are all horrible causing suffering and death to countless people and animals every year. Venomous pests such as centipedes cause torturous pain and seeious sickness.Large snakes such as Pythons and Anacondas strangle their victims to death which is another painful cruel horrible fate. Sharks have horrified people for centuries and the novel and movie Jaws capitalizes on this fear. There are also unidentified monstrous animals in the water and on land, There are sea serpents and lake monsters all over the world and all of them are potential mankillers and maneaters. Nature has a cruel dangerous side as well as human beings. The Exorcist series of movies are interesting and focuses on demonic possession. Exorcist 3-Legion is the most interesting of the bunch as it delves more deeply into the perennial problems of evil and suffering in the world and asks the hard questions such as would an all good God allow death, cancer, starvation, and monstrous human crimes such as serial killers decapitating their victims. The original 1973 The Exorcist has a notable scene at the beginning with its Northern Iraq prologue. A statue of the demon Pazuzu is shown. Some believe this was the demon which possessed Regan. Others say it was an unknown nameless demon which possessed her and others say it was Satan who possessed her. Regan tells Father Karras she's the Devil but this could be just a demon pretending to be the Devil. In one deleted scene or restored scene, the mother goes to the attic with a candle to investigate the scratching noises. (Scratching noises are a sign of demonic infestation.) The unseen demon causes the flame in the candle to grow tenfold to scare her. The original The Exorcist has two sequels and two prequels. Exorcist 2-the Heretic, Exorcist 3-Legion, and Exorcist-Dominion and Exorcist-the Beginning. Rumours exist that a remake to the original 1973 The Exorcist will be made. It will not be shown in theaters but it will be shown on TV as a multi-episode TV series. The 1974 Beyond the Door is also known as the Devil Within Her and Chi Sei? and stars Juliet Mills,Richard Johnson, and Gabriele Lavia and made by Ovidio Assonitis and Edward Montoro and Film Ventures. It was filmed in San Francisco and Rome. It has awesome music by Franco Micalizzi(theres a whole musical soundtrack to this movie). It begins with an unseen voice(the Devil) speaking outside in the dark with numerous candles. A satanic ritual is shown with Juliet Mills and Richard Johnson. Juliet Mills runs away. Next Richard Johnson is shown driving his car and the Devil's voice taunts him. Richard Johnson as Dimitri is a satanist and the Devil tells him in a voiceover that he must deliver the demonic baby of pregnant Juliet Mills. Dimitri becomes suspended in time for the next ten years while back in San Francisco Juliet Mills becomes demonically possessed. She levitates, spits and curses, and throws her husband around the room by telekinesis. In another scene, her two children, Ken and Gail, are alone in a room and the dolls and toys come to life and a demonic voice starts to laugh. The family doctor talks to a woman who lives in a boathouse about the supernatural. Richard Johnson finally apears and delivers Juliet Mill's baby. It is stillborn. The Devil in a voiceover tells him that he is going to die anyway as all this was just a joke at Dimitri's expense. Having been suspended in time for the last ten years, Dimitri plunges his car down a cliff into San Francisco Bay to his death and damnation. Next the family is shown on a ferry after this horrific ordeal. In the final scene, the little boy's eyes start to glow and its implied that little Ken is the next vessel for the Devil with the horror starting anew. There is a sense of helplessness and vulnerability in this movie. This movie illustrates that the Devil and demons are real and that people are largely helpless against them.

      "anonymous"-- I welcome your comment. Not everyone is a fan of horror movies. Yes, they do tend to show the darker side of things. That's kind of the point. I have never heard of Kiss of the Tarantula, but it sounds interesting. It might be bad...no clue. I am sure there are many that would disagree with you on the Halloween movies, though. Many regard them (at least the first two) as some of the best horror movies of all time. It is obvious that you are not a fan of the horror genre. You are entitled to that opinion.

      Its a matter of opinion to name the worst horror movies. There are so many horrible movies there isn't enough space or energy to list them all. Its in the thousands. Titles such as I Spit on your Grave, Cannibal Holocaust, Human Centipede, the Halloween movies, the Afterdark Horrorfest movies from Lionsgate distributor of which Tooth and Nail is one, Salo-120 days in Sodom, The Sentinel, and the list of disgusting atrocities continues. Every single kind of evil, cruelty, depravity, deviancy, degeneracy, degradation, vileness, grossness, repulsiveness are depicted in horror movies and horror novels. Monstrous violence, torture, killings, gore, decapitations, rape, sodomy, cruelty to animals, cannibalism, devil worship, premature burial, electrocutions, stabbings, strangulation, choking, drowning, poisoning, being burned, being frozen, being crushed, etc. The Afterdark Horrorfest series of movies by Lionsgate are especially horrific and disgusting and their movies are fond of depicting cannibalism. Just look at the artwork on the DVD covers to their movies. Piciures of a woman being smothered by a repulsive malevolent serpentine monster is shown. What a sick mind makes these pictures and what a sick mind makes these movies. In one of their sick disgusting movies, Tooth and Nail, the artwork on the DVD cover shows the bony skeleton of a winged creature resembling a bat with a human skull for a head. This seems to represent death, decay, degeneration, entropy, putrefaction. Nature itself is a horror with its numerous diseases, venomous pests such as centipedes, violence and predation, and hurricanes,tsunamis, and volcanoes and fearsome critters such as sharks, crocodiles, and pythons. One of the worst movies I have discovered is a stinker from the 1970s called Kiss of the Tarantula. Its a mystery when this movie was made as there are conflicting dates given depending on who you ask. 1972, 1974, 1975, 1976, and 1977 have all been given as dates for this movie. A girl lives in a funeral home/mortuary and keeps pet Tarantulas which she uses to kill people who anger her. The only person she likes is her undertaker father. She kills a few people with her large spiders including hed mother. She kills her sleazy uncle by pushing him down the stairs and paralyzing him and then putting him inside an airtight coffin and letting him suffocate to death. She puts two other dead bodies on top of him before closing the lid. Its a horrific fate with suffocation and claustrophobia. The movie is a combination of Willard and Premature Burial. Instead of rats, the girl uses large venomous biting spiders as weapons and she uses coffins as weapons. Its very disturbing and sick to watch a premature burial. The uncle protests "I cant breathe". Its to no avail. The uncle himself is a murderer but still. Putting someone inside a closed coffin is just unimaginably cruel, sadistic, and horrific. Its a fate worse than death. Horror movies and horror novels are a sad reflection of reality. The reality is that this is a sick, cruel, dangerous, frightening world ruled by the Devil and evil.

      OldWitchcraft-- Zombie Strippers is one of those movies that is so bad, you almost have to see it. The sequels to Psycho weren't that great, but they weren't that bad, either. In regards to Paris, some people like her, some hate her. Yeah, some of these movies are remakes, which often ends badly, but some of them are just really old, really bad movies.

    • OldWitchcraft profile image

      OldWitchcraft 5 years ago from The Atmosphere

      Zombie Strippers has an interesting sounding premise.

      Didn't like Halloween much except the ones with Jamie Lee Curtis in them. I didn't care for the remake of Psycho or Psycho 2 and 3, either. I watched 'em. But, I wouldn't want to do it, again.

      I watched 9 Lives up until Paris was killed... I like her. I really do. And, when she was out of the movie, it wasn't fun, anymore.

      I thought all of the Blair Witch movies were totally idiotic. The first one was one of the stupidest things I ever saw, so I stopped there.

      A bunch more there, I've never heard of, but they don't sound very good. Lots look like remakes of oldies - that's usually a bad idea.

      Voting you up! Accolades.

      cheekychappy-- sorry for not getting back to you on this one. It's hard for me to give a recommendation on a 'not scary' horror movie. So many movies fail to scare me, but then, I have seen so many, it's hard to be scared anymore.

      gradeAmerican-- I love some of these movies, if only because they are so terrible.

      Wild Bill-- Hmmm...interesting. Does the car hate all people? Or just some people, like Christine?

      CarltheCritic-- I have a few on the list that I love despite the fact that they are terrible. Like you said, even if it was intended as a bad movie, it's still a bad movie, but some of them are fun for that very reason!

      The majority of your list I mostly agree with, but there are a few that I guess I consider guilty pleasures. I notice that a lot of films on your list are movies that are movies that were really made to be bad (movies like "Doctor Giggles" (a guilty pleasure I admit) and "Zombie Strippers" (a movie that I hate with a burning passion)), and although as a filmmaker one of my philosophies is "if you purposely make a bad movie, it's still a bad movie", some of the movies on your list I actually do enjoy. But I understand why you don't like them. Great job :) Voted Up, and Everything Else.

      Chasyn 6 years ago from Seattle

      Anna- I would say the newer one is much better compared to the old one, although im not too sure if the new one was meant to be a remake or not. I give them props for making it feel like an old 70's horror show, but it does start quite slow, and honestly i would have to watch it again to be able to tell you if it was good or not, but i do remember that it is better than the 70's mmovie you were talking about lol

    • Chasyn profile image

      Chasyn 6 years ago from Seattle

      Anna-- i would say the newer one compared to the older one is much better, it starts out quite slow but picks up later on, i give them props because it does capture, for the most part, the feel of an old 70-8's horror movie

      Chasyn-- I think all of us have at least one "guilty pleasure" movie that despite the fact that it is terrible, we still love it dearly.

      beardo-- Everyone rips on the first Blair Witch movie, but it was creative, innovative, and while, it wasn't terribly scary, it was unique. Hard Rock Zombies, huh? Sounds pretty terrible. I will have to check both of those out. Working on another list of terrible horror movies after I saw a really bad one the other night. It was an old movie called The House of The Devil, or something like that. It was bad.

    • beardo profile image

      beardo 6 years ago from WV

      Cool list! Blair Witch 2 is a travesty. I've heard that Joe Berlinger (director) rips it apart in his own commentary on the DVD simply because the studio completely re-edited the movie without his permission. So there might have been an okay movie on the cutting room floor.

      Some bad movies that came to mind and aren't on your list: Hard Rock Zombies and Home Sweet Home.

      Cunning-- I was aware that a few were MST3K features, but not that many. I don't see how that disqualifies them from being bad movies, just because they were already considered bad movies by someone else. And, some of these movies can be found on Netflix if you search for them. I agree completely on Nine Lives...awful!!! I blame everyone from the writer, the director, the actors, and all the way to the studio which green-lighted the project.

    • profile image

      Cunning 6 years ago

      Half the movies are MST3K/Movie Macabre features, which to me disqualifies them because they've already been labelled as famously (or infamously) bad, and are movies which are rare or impossible to find on TV or DVD outside the MST3K/Movie Macabre format.

      Nine Lives is, by far, the most poorly written movie I've ever seen. I can't decide who deserves more blame; Writer/Director Andrew Green for penning one of the most tedious, mindless, unnatural scripts ever written, or the actors for accepting the roles after reading it. I've heard better dialogue in 70s Porn.

    • Stephanie Wideman profile image

      Stephanie Wideman 6 years ago from Stafford, VA

      Oh, I've seen some of those! I agreed on some of your points, and must humbly disagree with others.

      House of the Dead - I think I've seen this one. I saw a video game movie with zombies on an island. The only good part was when the characters died, they had a video game death.

      House of Wax/Nine Lives: While both are horrible movies, I do have to disagree that Paris Hilton is a bad actress. Take her out of the bimbo blonde roll, and she's decent. Just see Repo! The Genetic Opera. She's not half bad in that.

      Parnormal Activity - I agree and disagree with you on this. I agree it's bad, but I disagree that the end was the scary part. One or two times when nothing happened, I held my breath thinking something would happen. But the ending? I cheered. It was not scary to me at all. Will you be reviewing Paranomal Activity 3?

      Psycho - I'm afaid I disagree again. I liked the reason why they made it. It was to have people who might not want to see a black and white movie (they exist. Horrible, I know, but they do). It was done as closely as they could to the original that the cameo of Alfred Hitchcock was played by his daughter. I don't think it's a horrible movie. Not the world's best, but the intent wasn't to make a great new movie, just one that might introduce certain people to the wonderful world of Hitchcock.

      Troll/Troll 2: Agree. Burn it with fire.

      lordraven-- We all have our guilty pleasures...for some of us, it's bad horror movies, or even bad movies in general.

      ruffridyer-- Right plot, acting, budget, and director...wouldn't that just be a completely different movie? LOL

      FatFreddysCat-- I love Jason X, I really do. It's a terrible movie, with a horrible plot, but I still love it!! Mostly having to do with the reasons you mentioned. All the insanely-far-out-there death scenes. They were way beyond believable, but so amusing, I have a weak spot for the ridiculously absurd. I also love the scene where Jason is in the room with the virtual camping scene. Sooo funny!!!

    • FatFreddysCat profile image

      Keith Abt 6 years ago from The Garden State

      I've found that "Jason X" works better if you treat it as a parody of the "Friday the 13th" series rather than another legitimate entry in the series.

      It does feature my all time favorite kill scene in the entire "F13" franchise though -- when Jason dunks that chick's face in a tank of liquid nitrogen, then slams her frozen head against the table top so it shatters like a beer bottle. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

      You should add Halloween Resurrection to your list, and Stan Helsing. Even though "Stan Helsing" is a comedy, it's not even remotely funny, and probably one of the most stupid movies ever made.

      As for Halloween Resurrection is sucked with a capital S!

      I actually liked Freddy Vs. Jason. Mainly because a lot of it was pretty funny. It's the only horror movie I ever watched where I spent half of the time laughing. I also liked the fight scenes between Jason and Freddy. He really kicked his ass! LOL!

      I agree that "The Creeping Terror" is one of the worst films ever made. In fact, my buddy Pete Schuermann is hoping to establish it as the all-time worst in his upcoming documentary, "Creep!"

      Pete has already snagged interviews with much of the film's original cast and crew. Next spring he'll begin shooting reenactments of the notorious behind-the-scenes activities of director Art J. Nelson, a con man, pimp and drug addict who was known to "audition" 13-year-old girls and completed the film only because he was threatened with jail time if he didn't.
