I like cheesy horror movies that my friends and I can tear to pieces. You know, the ones with stock characters, physics-defying blood spatter patters and wet heroines (why is it always raining???? LMAO). You could drive a van through the holes in the plot, they are so large and obvious. It's especially entertaining when someone famous is in the film.
Crossing Jordan/Law&Order fans, I urge you to rent Komodo
This is probably my all-time favourite cheesy horror pick. The lovely Jill Hennessy will dazzle audiences by fending of giant komodo dragons using such weapons as a broom stick, pithy lines and very flawed ideas about how a pyschiatrist (no last name....we referred to her as pyschiatrist barbie) should treat her young, traumatized patient. Two thumbs up!
Medium fans will enjoy Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dreamwarriors
, where Patricia Arquette joins the ranks of the many celebrities who have faced off with Freddy Kruger (remember a young Johnny Depp in the original??), this time from a psych ward. She is joined by Lawrence Fishburn as the kindly orderly. If you can possibly find it, do get the version of the film that comes with the music video by Dokken. It's AWESOME. So much 80s style and sound with disjointed clips from the film; how could it be anything but entertaining?!?
Carol and everyone else who has mentioned Hitch Hiker's Guide......I found the film to be cute and reasonably amusing for what it was. But, I went in realizing there was absolutely no way that the humour of the book could be properly captured in film. It's such a great series of novels, but there are just too many small referrences and exccentricities to have it translate well to film. However, I did not object to spending a few hours gazing at Mos Def
