30 Ridiculously Awesome Horror Movie Titles

The Best Worst Horror Movie Titles

Some horror movie titles are ridiculous (The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies), and others are awesome (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre), but a select few are ridiculously awesome. Full of attitude, bad puns, icky imagery and sheer lunacy, a "good bad" horror title is a work of art and is often better than the movie itself.
