Good bad horror movies are worth their weight in gold. Finding the good stuff is easy enough, in fact, take a look at our Best Horror Movies for Halloween article here.
But being able to find that diamond in the rough, or one that is just so bad you can’t help but enjoy the absurdity of it is extremely difficult. Fear not though, as we are here to help that special type of person that loves “so bad, it’s good” horror movies. Here is our list of the best WORST horror movies for Halloween currently on streaming services. And make sure to read until the end to see our fangtastic Halloween sale!
The Wake (2019) Prime Video
The Wake is a truly baffling film from start to finish. The Wake is about a group of friends that attend the wake of a child they accidentally killed with their car. They obviously fled the scene of the crime, but they just decide to rock up at this poor child’s wake anyway. As to why they aren’t arrested, I am not sure. That odd plot hole aside, at the wake, the group don’t even act in a respectable manner that you’d expect at a wake. Especially when it’s entirely your fault and you’re on the run.
Regardless, the awful acting, weird musical choices, and dodgy camera work make this an absolute must-see. Just let the incongruity wash over you.
Chopping Mall (1986) Prime Video
For those that are a fan of schlocky 80s horror, look no further than Chopping Mall. Chopping Mall follows a group of teens that work at a mall. They decide to stay the night after the mall is locked up to get up to some hijinks. It just so happens that this is the same night new “state of the art” security robots are joining the team. And after a malfunction, they decide to kill all humans in sight.
Chopping Mall is just an absolute joy from start to finish. And features robots with worse aim than a stormtrooper. If that sounds up your alley, give Chopping Mall a chance.
Trick (2019) Hulu
This is a perfectly good bad horror movie for Halloween. Trick is about a detective that is tasked with tracking down a masked killer that happens to appear every Halloween, normally at parties filled with teenagers. It isn’t half bad when it comes to its kills, but the framework surrounding it isn’t exactly the most stable thing on earth. If you are looking for some good Halloween schlock, Trick is a decent shout. Especially for those that just love some bad acting and dialogue.
Circle (2015) Netflix
Circle is a film about 50 strangers that wake up in a mysterious room all standing in a circle. Every two minutes, one of them will die. It’s a film set really in a single room, but it’s a riot to watch with a group. It’s one of those films that allows you to strategize and also revel at how awful some of the people in the film are. A very good watch for those that love a bit of audience participation. It isn’t some masterpiece, but it is good fun, especially for Halloween.
Jacob’s Ladder (2019) Netflix
The original Jacob’s Ladder is one of my favourite horror films of all time. And this 2019 remake is so awful that it hurts. If you are looking for a good laugh and to also despair at how they could get the source material so wrong. Jacob’s Ladder 2019 is as good an option as any. Its true awfulness can only be appreciated though if you have seen the original. So, make sure to do that first. An absolute misfire in every way.
Countdown (2019) Prime Video
I am a sucker for horror movies that revolve around technology and a very misguided attempt to convey some sort of message about how technology is negatively impacting society. Countdown ticks both of these boxes. Countdown is about a nurse that downloads an app that tells her she only has three days to live. This film is only rated PG-13, so if you are looking for something suitable to watch with older kids, this is a very good option. It will probably scare your kids and give you a good chuckle as it lurches from textbook plot point to plot point.
