7 worst Horror movies on Netflix, MX Player and YouTube that are so bad theyre actually funny – GQ India

There are horror movies like It, The Shining, The Exorcist, and A Nightmare on Elm Street, that give us sleepless nights, and successfully feed our fears and phobias by bringing our worst nightmares on screen.

Then there are some horror moviesthat are so bad theyre actually funny. Be it the botched-up story plot, over-acting by the cast or the hilarious dialogues and situations that make no sense at all, these movies will make you cringe and laugh at their flaws instead of feeling scared.

Directed by Uwe Boll, the film is loosely based on an arcade video game of the same name and features Jonathan Cherry, Tyron Leitso, Clint Howard, Ona Grauer, Kira Clavell and Ellie Cornell. The story follows a group of friends who travel to a remote island to attend a rave party. What they think would be the best time of their lives turns out to be their worst nightmare as they are welcomed by a group of zombies waiting on the island to kill them. The terrible action scenes and even worse performances turn this otherwise decent story into a comedy of errors.

If Steven Spielbergs Jaws is a cult classic, Jaws 3-D directed by Joe Alves is the exact opposite. In other words, this is a movie sequel no one asked for or wanted in the first place. Starring Dennis Quaid, Bess Armstrong, Lea Thompson and Louis Gossett Jr. this film is the third installment in the Jaws franchise, and revolves around a group of marine biologists, who try to capture a young Great White shark after it enters an aquatic park. However, things go horribly wrong when a ferocious mother shark breaks into the park in search of her baby.

In this romantic horror movie directed by James Nguyen, a flock of mutated eagles and vultures cause destruction by attacking and terrorizing the people of a quiet town in California. Inspired by Alfred Hitchcocks The Birds, this movie is about Rod (Alan Bagh) and Nathalie (Whitney Moore), who meet and fall in love in a town that is being attacked by birds. Critics have unanimously called this as one of the worst films of all time.

Directed by Jim Isaac, this American sci-fi slash horror film is the tenth installment of the Friday the 13th film series and features Lexa Doig, Lisa Ryder, Chuck Campbell and Kane Hodder. In 2010, Jason Voorhees, our beloved masked killer, is captured by the US government and cryogenically frozen. Fast-forward 445 years into the future, Earth is no longer safe, and humans have now moved to a new planet, Earth-Two. However, things turn ugly when Jason is discovered by some young space travellers who accidentally bring him to life, and Jason starts attacking people one by one. Hands down the worst ranking movie in the entire franchise.

Nicolas Cage is known for some of his finest performances in Ghost Rider, National Treasure and Face/Off,but sometimes even the most seasoned actors can make poor choices while selecting films, and The Wicker Man happens to be one of them. Nicolas Cage plays a cop who travels to a remote island inhabited by a neo-pagan community to find his missing daughter. The population on the island is predominantly female and their economy depends on the production of honey. As Cage enters the island, he realises that there is a much bigger and deadlier mystery surrounding the island. Although intended to scare the wits out of its viewers, the film turned out to be an unintentional comedy thanks to Cages over-dramatic performance and equally terrible direction.

Starring Tara Reid, Ian Ziering, John Heard, Jason Simmons and Cassandra Scerbo, this sci-fi horror film is so bad that its good. When a freak tornado moves from Mexico to Los Angeles, natures deadliest killers become the rulers of the sea, land, and air, as the tornado unleashes a herd of sharks in the city that are attacking anything and anyone that comes in their way. How a group of friends risks their lives to fight this disastrous Sharknado forms the rest of the plot.

Directed by Jennifer Lynch, this horror movie revolves around a vengeful shape-shifting cobra, played by Mallika Sherawat. The snake woman wreaks havoc on a greedy man trying to acquire her nagmani to become immortal after he kidnaps and tortures her mate to find her. In the process, she transforms into a beautiful woman and goes on a killing spree while helping other helpless women. Apart from Mallika Sherawat, the film also stars Irrfan Khan, Divya Dutta and Jeff Doucette. Even though the film doesnt offer a great cinematic experience, you can still watch it for Irrfan Khan.

When Toni Collette’s Performance in ‘Hereditary’ Was Snubbed By the Oscars – Screen Realm


Its been said countless times since the film came out, but lets say it again: How good was Toni Collette in Hereditary? And how the hell did this incredible performance not earn her an Oscar nomination?!

Watch our video spotlight below and scroll down for the complete transcript/article write-up:

The acclaimed Australian star put in incredible work in the 2018 horror film from writer-director Ari Aster, playing the mother of a family who is being haunted by occurrences both tragic and hauntingly malevolent.

As Annie, Collettes performance is nothing short of spectacular. From harbouring troubling thoughts and emotions that even she cant explain, to the horrifying reaction and subsequent anguish, depression and resentment that unfolds after that shocking death. The less said about that death and that sequence for now, the better. Its a jaw-dropping moment that I wont be forgetting in a hurry.

Collettes cries and screams were utterly unnerving. And who can forget her stunning acting during that dinner scene?

As a woman on an emotional downhill decline, Collettes performance is utterly exhausting in the best way possible. One can only imagine just how deep into her gut and what recesses of her mind Collette had to reach for some of those scenes.

Collette herself has described her part in Hereditary as one of the most demanding and difficult roles in her career, even finding herself taking to exercise to deal with all those emotions.

She told The Wrap in 2018:

It was deeply draining. I think that is when I really started hitting the gym. Its the first time in my life, I just knew that I had to literally move energy out of my body. This is the film where I learned how to take care of myself as an actor

Talking to The Guardian in 2018, director Ari Aster said that casting Collette was a no-brainer.

Shes playing someone very tortured and conflicted, and really jumps off at the deep end. I told her that I was looking for a kamikaze performance, and she delivered.

While the whole cast in Hereditary puts in fantastic work, including Alex Wolff as Peter, Gabriel Byrne as Steve and young Milly Shapiro as Charlie, its Collettes turn as Annie that serves as the glue to the films narrative thread.

Hereditary really should have been Collettes second Oscar nomination. She earned her first and only Oscar nom thus far for The Sixth Sense and that was back in 2000. You could say that the Academy has long had a problem with recognising and awarding horror film performances although 1974s The Exorcist was certainly an exception. Stars Ellen Burstyn, Jason Miller and Linda Blair were all nominated for acting nods. The film won two: best adapted screenplay and best sound.

So what did you think of Toni Collette in Hereditary? Do you think she was worthy of an Oscar nomination? What other great horror movie performances do you think have been overlooked? Let us know in the comments.

Mystery Science Theater 3000’s Weirdest Movie Was Directed By A Horror Icon – Screen Rant

The Mystery Science Theater 3000 revival featured some extremely odd films. The weirdest title was a kid's film directed by horror icon Al Adamson.

The latest Mystery Science Theater 3000 revival on Netflix has highlighted some exceptionally strange films; its weirdest title was a movie directed by a horror icon who was brutally murdered in his own home.

The Netflix revival of MST3K, which ran for two seasons beginning in 2017, was lauded for its new cast and storyline. Created by Joel Hodgson and featuring comedian Jonah Ray as the new host, it combined the strongest elements of the previous versions of the show. Ray played Jonah Heston, the third unfortunate test subject on the Satellite of Love. Kidnapped and forced to watch bad movies by a mad scientist and her minions, Heston and various bots riffed on an inspired selection of obscure and poorly-made titles.

The new seasons, consisting of 20 episodes, featured some bold film choices including the campy Bigfoot movie Cry Wilderness, the E.T. at McDonalds favorite Mac and Me,and Ash Vs. Evil Deads Lee Majors in Killer Fish. But the weirdest title, pulled out of obscurity, was a movie never released theatrically that made by a low-budget horror icon. The movie in question was Carnival Magic, a 1981 comedy, ostensibly made for kids, about a struggling traveling carnival that suddenly becomes successful when their resident magician (Don Stewart) incorporates his talking chimp into the magic act. After the discovery of a pristine print in 2009, the film, thought lost for years, was restored and televised on TCM.

A year following this discovery, Carnival Magicreceived a DVD release and became a cult hit with fans of odd, obscure cinema. The movie was a labor of love for director Al Adamson, a horror icon responsible for some of the strangest exploitation films of the 1960s and 1970s. Though he made films in a variety of genres, he was best known for his horror output. Famous for re-using old footage and incoherency, Adamson's most popular titles included Blood of Ghastly Horror (1967), Dracula Vs. Frankenstein (1971) and the bizarre,Carrie-influenced Nurse Sherri (1978). Carnival Magic was one of the directors final films and exhibits many of his trademarks; bad acting, negligible writing and low production values.

Though created as a film for kids, there are inappropriate adult themes and a seedy, exploitation atmosphere better suited to Adamsons earlier films. Alex, the talking chimp, does little to advance the plot, and his talking is limited to grunting and a muffled word or two. It was the directors penultimate film before he turned to real estate. Years after Adamson retired from filmmaking, he was murdered by his live-in contractor who buried him underneath a tile floor. It was a tragic and somewhat ironic death for a man who made a living making violent horror and exploitation films. A complete set of Adamsons work was recently released on disc through Severin Films and the Mystery Science Theater 3000 episode can still be streamed on Netflix.

Zombie films that teach us how to survive the apocalypse – 1428 Elm

Use your (arrows) to browse

Zombie films can teach us invaluable survival skills. I like Naked and Afraid just as much as the next person, but we know that for the participants on that show, help is really just a cameraman away, right? If someone is bitten by a snake or contracts Dengue Fever, theyre medically tapped and whisked away to the nearest hospital.

The true test of survival would be how you are able to fare during a zombie apocalypse, and there is no way to practice for that. The only text book we have to go by are the many zombie movies (hardcore and comedy alike) available to stream. What can these films teach us?

On The Walking Dead, the love triangle between Rick, Lori and Shane caused a lot of trouble for our group. There was tension, there were arguments, there was a pregnancyand then Shane went a little bit crazy, which ultimately led to his demise. All of this negative energy upset the group dynamic, and you have to imagine that it caused our group of pilgrims to lose focus on the ultimate goal, which was survival.

Blood Quantum introduced us to a zombie apocalypse in which indigenous people were immune to zombie bites. They could still be bitten, but a bite did not mean they would necessarily die, and if they did die, they did not come back as zombies. Our band of indigenous survivors is led by Traylor, who is more than willing to provide shelter to white refugees. Younger son Joseph has a pregnant white girlfriend, so he is all on board with Dads plan.

Older son Lysol is an angry rebel, and its his decision to allow zombies to feast on the non-indigenous folk that brings about the disaster that follows. If Lysol hadnt spent so much time trying to get back at his Dad, maybe a better family dynamic would have led to a better outcome. And Traylor should have known better than to trust Lysol in his absence, knowing how volatile his son was.

‘Zombie fires’ spread across Siberia, unusual warmth is to blame – The Weather Network

Monday, May 25th 2020, 8:00 pm - The abnormally warm temperatures in Siberia have had impacts on sea ice in the Arctic Ocean and global temperature anomalies.

A persistent weather pattern has drastically warmed temperatures on the other side of the globe and has impacted sea ice, snowpack, permafrost and forest fire behaviour.

Last summer, the forest fire activity north of the Arctic Circle in Siberia scorched nearly three million hectares. Fast forward to May 2020 and scientists are startled at the unusual fire behaviour in parts of the region.

Some researchers speculate these fires are in fact 'zombie fires' that survived the winter season by smouldering under the snowpack. The snowpack acts as an insulator, keeping the layers of vegetation under the snowpack significantly warmer than the surrounding Siberian air.

Looking back at the past four months, this stubborn temperature anomaly has persisted right on the periphery of a robust polar vortex. A stronger polar vortex tends to inhibit colder temperatures from plunging south, but the recent temperature anomaly has been amplified by several short-term weather patterns. The anomalous warmth has spiralled north, pushing temperatures well above seasonal north of the Arctic Circle.

This years global temperatures are expected to be warmer than those in 2016, which was declared the warmest year on record at the time. If 2020 goes down as the hottest year on record, the anomaly over Siberia could be the differentiator.

Scientists say that even if this years temperatures fall short of those in 2016, there is a 99.9 per cent chance that 2020 will be in the top five warmest years on record.

Mika Rantanen, a researcher at the Finnish Meteorological Institute, has documented the exceptional warmth that has even occurred in locations with lingering snowpack.

The crescendo of warmth occurred this past Sunday as the mercury soared to 30.5C at a latitude of 67N, becoming quite remarkable in May. Meteorologists estimated that these local temperatures were over 20C above normal this past weekend.

Travelling even further north, the persistent upper-level ridge has been highly effective at breaking up sea ice.

The Kara Sea, which is located in the Arctic ocean, has seen significant sea ice declines in recent weeks, becoming a major outlier. Since satellite tracking of sea-ice began, this is the lowest amount of ice recorded in the Kara Sea during this time.

Early May 2020 featured a relatively normal amount of sea ice in the basin, before sharply plummeting below 2012 levels over the past couple of weeks. Data from the National Snow & Ice Data Center highlights the sea ice extent entering into uncharted territory.

According to most long-range computer models, ridging and above normal temperatures are expected to continue in northern Siberia, particularly focussed along the shores of the Arctic Ocean.

Marvel Zombies & DCeased Have Another SCARY Similarity | CBR – CBR – Comic Book Resources

DCeased and Marvel Zombies approach a similar idea from very different perspectives, but they both have the same turning point.

Both DCeased and the Marvel Zombies franchises tackle the concept of superheroes trying to survive the end of the world via an infectious disease that corrupts anyone it comes in contact with, even established superheroes. Outside of featuring the respective rosters of the Marvel and DC Universes, the two concepts might seem practically identical at a glance.

However, the overall tone and execution of both stories is radically different, as is the cause of the zombie outbreak in question. However, Marvel Zombies andDCeased both prove that super-speedsters are the most dangerous kinds of heroes in these kinds of apocalyptic scenarios.

RELATED:DCeased: Which DC Heroes & Villains Are Still Alive After Unkillables

As seen in Mark Millar and Greg Land's first Marvel Zombies story and in Robert Kirkman and Sean Phillips' initial Marvel Zombies series, the disease is a literal zombie virus that turns Earth's Mightest Heroes into rotting corpses who refuse to die. The only way to kill them is to destroy their brains -- as with traditional zombies -- and they're all driven by an insatiable need to feed on flesh. The Marvel Zombies are also surprisingly lucid for the undead, retaining many of their memories and aspects of their personality. However, the heroes have been largely corrupted by their hunger, which has turned many of them into gleefully cannibalistic monsters.

Tom Taylor and Trevor Hairsine's DCeased doesn't feature a traditional zombie virus, and it doesn't cause people to become typical zombies. Instead, the virus is actually a manifestation of the Anti-Life Equation. After finally being discovered by Darkseid hiding within Cyborg, the villain's experiment to fuse it with an element of power from the deadly Black Racer causes the equation to mutate into a virus of the mind. Spread through information or blood, the disease is always looking to spread more and more. In many ways, it is a sentient being, even using Wonder Woman to speak through to Cyborg before killing him.

RELATED: DCeased Proves The Incredibles Was RIGHT About Capes

Both worlds are presented in very different tones.Marvel Zombies always had a certain amount of tongue-in-cheek humor, finding a great deal of gallows humor amidst the horror of classic heroes turning on the people they once protected. The personalities are still present in the zombies, and much of the attention is focused on them and their interactions. Even when theMarvel Zombies stories focus on survivors, the proceedings have a grim sense of comedy.

That isn't the case forDCeased, which is entirely told from the perspective of the survivors trying to make it through the end of the world. There is little humor to be found -- although some desperate laughs can still be found throughout the story -- and the horror of the transformations is more played up. There's a malicious edge to the virus inDCeased, which makes the bittersweet triumph of the heroes all the more engrossing.

However, there is one big similarity between the two stories: the point of no return comes when a speedster is infected with the disease. In bothMarvel Zombies andDCeased, many of the remaining uninfected heroes are being overrun but still have hope of turning the tide and containing the corrupted people around them. However, hope is lost when Quicksilver and Flash are respectively infected. InMarvel Zombies, Quicksilver is tricked by Mystique -- who'd disguised herself as Scarlet Witch- -- to lure him in close enough to bite. Once Quicksilver is infected, he quickly spreads the disease across the entire globe, effectively dooming his world and eventually his entire universe by spreading the zombie virus to the point of no return.

Meanwhile, Flash is infected by Martian Manhunter after he returns and reveals himself to have become a Blighted One. While Martian Manhunter at least had the decency to kill Lex Luthor rather than just infect him, Flash quickly loses control and starts spreading the virus around the world, similar to Quicksilver. However, Superman decides to try and prevent the further spread by finding his path and standing in the way - leading Flash to crash against Superman and explode in a pile of gore. Unfortunately, the speed of Flash at the time of impact gave him enough momentum to break Superman's skin, allowing the disease to spread into him as well. This was the final nail in the coffinfor Earth, as most of humanity flees the planet while the corrupted Superman spreads the virus to Wonder Woman and even begins a process that will end up killing the Sun.

So while the zombie apocalypse of both superhero franchisees might be very different in terms of tone and application, both universes agree that zombie speedsters end very poorly for everyone.

Why dont the zombie media apologise and resign? – Spiked

The Dominic Cummings affair has confirmed one more casualty of the terrible coronavirus crisis. After a long and lingering decline, it seems time to announce the death of objective journalism and the pursuit of truth in much of the British media.

Nobody has to like Cummings, special adviser to Tory prime minister Boris Johnson. But there is no justification for many media outlets frenzied, one-eyed, pitchfork-and-noose-waving witch-hunt of him in recent days.

Indeed, after Cummings unprecedented press Q&A yesterday, where he refuted the major media allegations against him and batted away demands that he say sorry and step down, one question remains: why dont the Remainstream media apologise and resign?

After all, leading newspapers and broadcasters have been exposed as unethical serial truth twisters, to borrow the phrase from that bitter Remainer civil servant on Twitter. Yet the zombie media staggers on, lashing out at anything or anybody associated with Boris and Brexit.

It would have been right and proper for the news media to ask serious questions about Cummings 250-mile trip from London to County Durham in north-east England during the lockdown. Unfortunately, the agenda-obsessed, axe-grinding wings of the UK media were not interested in asking serious questions. They were already certain that Cummings must be guilty of breaking the lockdown law because, well, hes orrible Dom, isnt he?

So from Friday, the Labour-supporting Guardian and Daily Mirror cooperated to publish a series of reports asserting an escalating charge sheet against Cummings: that he had not only shown contempt for the lockdown by visiting his parents in County Durham, but was also being investigated by police after breaking coronavirus lockdown rules. Worse, they assured us on Sunday, even after returning to work in Whitehall he had ignored lockdown rules for a SECOND time to visit parents.

Outrageous! Off with his baldy, beanie-hatted head! Just one problem. The damning allegations turned out to be essentially untrue.

As Cummings detailed on Monday, he had not waltzed off up north to pop in on his ageing parents while suffering with coronavirus. Fearful that both he and his wife would be too ill to look after their child, he had taken his family to self-isolate in separate accommodation on the family farm, where his sister left food outside the front door and his 17-year-old niece was on voluntary standby to care for the child in an emergency.

Moreover, as made clear in a clarifying statement from Durham police issued shortly before Cummings press conference, he had not been investigated or even spoken to about breaking lockdown rules. Instead the local law had merely given his parents some security advice around his stay there. Police apparently had no other concerns about Cummings actions.

And to top it all, there is no evidence to support the killer allegation that Cummings had flagrantly returned to County Durham to visit his parents on a second occasion, this time apparently with no excuse at all. This story, based on one witness who claimed to have seen a man fitting his appearance, was splashed across the front pages of the Guardian / Observer and Mirror, and broadcast as headline weekend news by the BBC and everybody else. Yet as Cummings spelled out, he was working back in London on the dates in question, a claim he said could be backed up by his phone and tracking data and, no doubt, by the CCTV that covers the capital.

Heres the thing. The Cummings-obsessed media that have been screeching about principles, rules and ethics for days quickly turned out to be feckless and footloose with their own moral standards and the principles of good journalism. They plastered the news with facts that were false and evidence that was anything but, all because it suited their biased pursuit of Boriss man. That is far worse news for democracy and a free society than anything Cummings might have done in Durham.

Objective journalism might be dead in some powerful arms of the press and TV. Yet in the face of the facts, the zombie media carries on with its zealous crusade. As the unprepossessing Cummings outlined his case on Monday, you could almost sense some wiser heads starting to see that things were not quite as they had assumed.

Other leading media lights, however, ploughed on down their furrow of endless outrage regardless, demanding again and again to know why Cummings refused to resign from his position or to apologise to the public for, err, not doing anything wrong. These modern crusaders in journalists garb appear more interested in spouting soundbites that they can tweet than in discovering the truth; more concerned with accumulating online followers than unearthing the facts of the matter.

Many people might be sympathetic to the argument that there should be no special treatment for Cummings as a government adviser. Yet the special treatment he has enjoyed from the media involves being singled out for a kicking. The reason for this particular attention is, of course, Brexit.

The Remainstream media despise Dom as a major figure first in the victorious Leave campaign and then in Boriss triumphant Get Brexit Done election campaign. It is no surprise whatsoever to see that those getting most carried away with the campaign to have him hanged, drawn and quartered are arch Remainers in politics with the Lib Dems and SNP fronting the lynch mob and in the media, such as the Guardian, Mirror and BBC.

Their loathing of the democratic vote for Brexit means the gloves come off when theres a chance of hitting Boris or Cummings, however far below the belt. It has been nauseating to see the media effectively egging on lowlife abusive protesters outside the Cummings family home. Some have sunk even lower. The Guido Fawkes website reported that one self-styled Guardian reporter and champion of the underdog had chalked an insulting message on Cummings street, then photographed the daub as news. Imagine the reaction if, say, a Sun snapper had done that outside Jeremy Corbyns home?

Talking at Mondays media event about reports of many people being angry at his behaviour, Cummings said, There is understandably anger, but a lot of that anger is based on reports in the media that have not been true. People have shouted at me in the street, Why did you go back to your parents?, but I didnt do that. When another hack demanded to know what he would say to the new Tory voters in northern seats who now reportedly want him to go, Cummings calmly replied that he would tell them they should not believe everything they read in the newspapers or hear on the TV.

It is fair to assume that neither of those statements appeared in many zombie news headlines.
