Top 10 B Horror Movies: That Have a Cult Following
B horror movies are a guilty pleasure for many horror fans. They are often low-budget, cheesy, gory, and sometimes unintentionally hilarious. But they can also be surprisingly scary, creative, and entertaining.
Let me tell you how I became a fan of B horror movies. It all started when I was invited to a Halloween party at my friend’s house. He said he had a collection of the best horror movies ever made and that we would have a blast watching them. I was excited and curious to see what he had in store for us. Little did I know that he was a huge fan of B horror movies and that his idea of the best horror movies ever made was very different from mine.
He put on the first movie and it was called Evil Dead. Yes, you heard me right. Evil Dead. It was about five friends who travel to a cabin in the woods and unleash flesh-possessing demons by reading from an ancient book. The movie was so low-budget and cheesy that I couldn’t help but laugh at every scene. The effects were crude and the acting was wooden. The plot made no sense and the gore was excessive.
But you know what? I had fun watching it. It was entertaining and hilarious in its own way. I realized that B horror movies have their own charm and appeal. They don’t take themselves seriously and they don’t try to be realistic or logical.
That’s why I decided to write this post and share with you the top 10 B horror movies that came out in the last 10 years. These movies are not your typical horror movies. They are quirky, campy, gory, and sometimes surprisingly scary
