OMG! Just by reading those titles you can tell they're bad, bad horror movies. But you know what? They're so bad, they're fun to watch. Friday night, popcorn, and one of those movies. Yayy!

Hi Tempest,

Yeah, pass the pop corn.

I just watched Jesse James meets Frankenstein's daughter. It hadn't made into my top thirteen worst horror flicks, but it was close.
