Posted 27 June 2016 - 10:04 AM #1 "Low" budget horror films.

So after facing myself with my vcrs for "Anaconda"; "Predator 2", "Jeepers creepers(1&2)" "Jason X" amongst few other slasher horrorish films i came to realise they are quite entertaining really. Because of reasons. Still im here to collect recomendations on such films. Not necessarilly good horror films. Entertaining slashy light low budgetish kinda movies. Can have a horrible story and terrible dialogue so long as they are entertaining.  I suppose thats what im looking for. Although feel free to give recomendations on outsanding ones. Im never one to shun those, just not sure why im really feeling these crappy lovable movies right now

Night Claws. The best worst only low-budget sasquatch horror movie you'll ever need. Howling 2 is the same, but with werewolves. It gets bonus points because Christopher Lee is in it!

Down on the list! Never heard of either but i'll get them asap. The reviews look promising!
On another line; some movies such as scream and american werewolf in london are sorta made purposelly bad/good; i want those too.

Army of Darkness, the third in the Sam Raimi's Evil Dead series starring Bruce Campbell is the best of the lot before they went on to better things.  Low budget and old fashion special effects with plenty of blood and other fluids squirting out to make it funny.  You can usually find them in a bargain bin.

Doc of the dead, a zombie documentary about zombies by redletter media is great low budget zombie film.
It doesn't have the ''this is my boom stick'' sequences from army of darkness but it has it's moments.

Much to the chagrin of my wife I'm a frequent shopper at the low budget garbage sections of Family Video and Netflix.

Anything by the Asylum is entertaining.

Here's a couple more of my favorites

Pro Wrestlers vs Zombies
Hell Night
Brain Damage
Monsters (though more scifi than horror)
Ginger Snaps
From Beyond
Splinter
The Dentist (Corbin Bernsen is great in this)


If you really want to torture yourself find some old VHS copies of Moontrap and Xtro. Or Street Trash. Street trash is something everyone should see once. Or never. Not quite sure on that one.

Don't get me started, the list is going to be so long... ooops, too late.

Spoiler

Note that some of these aren't ”low budget” and some aren't ”good”. Some were already mentioned by others, hope it doesn't bother you... I could write more movies, but I feel the list is long enough for now...

I really loved the 2005 film, "The Descent."  It's a strange combination of a spelunking film, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and Aliens.  Didn't have much impact in terms of film, but the new "Tomb Raider" reboot ripped it off liberally, stealing its main plot arch and a certain scene where the main character is baptized in blood:

The French also had a really great run of very nihilistic horror films in the 2000s.   My favorite of the lot was "Inside," about a woman stalking a pregnant woman.  One of the most intense thrillers I've ever seen:

Not really a slasher film at all, but the last truly great horror film I saw was "The Witch."  Worth seeing if you like horror:

Otherwise, too many to list.  I'd have to sit down and think some more.

The Babadook (2014) is a low budget horror movie that is actually excellent and suspenseful.

Continuing Juan Carlo's mention of French horror films from the early 2000s, Haute Tension (2003) has a lot of, well... tension and a whole lot of gore. In fact I think most of the movie had to get edited out because it was so gross and extreme. (I, personally, thought it was awful but I mean if you want horrible movie reccomendations...)

Last Shift (2014) is a pretty fun bloody horror movie.

The ultimate horrible story/terrible dialogue low budget awfulness, though, goes to WolfCop (2014). Just... WolfCop.

The Mimic series of films were fairly good, and one of the sequels (either 2 or 3) had an awesome twist at the end.
