Horror has plenty of success as a genre. Some of the best films of all time have had horror influences, The Shining, Silence of the Lambs and many more have proven that the genre should be taken seriously. Unfortunately, alongside some of the fantastic classics come films that make even the staunchest horror defender look away in shame.
Many projects focus on producing more goofy titles in order to gain attention. In horror, this tends to be successful as films that don't take themselves too seriously have a certain charm to them. But there also come films that attempt to create a serious experience and fail.
Whether it is due to a horrendously bad concept, awful visual effects or just a lack of skill in regards to the medium, these films ended up completely missing the mark and generating a horror that had audiences laughing far more than they were screaming.
Despite this, many of them are still worth a watch because of the joy they bring in their unintentional glory. No matter how hard the filmmakers may have tried, their prime intention was completely missed.
