We’re all a fan of horror movies, right? Otherwise, why would you be here? And we’ve all got our own personal tastes of what makes a great horror movie versus a terrible one.

This list, which is pretty damn hilarious if you ask me, covers a few big name entries but also several more under the radar selections. Check out the list below and leave a comment with YOUR worst horror movie!

Al-Jazeera today announced that renegade shock-rockers GWAR have recently and secretly returned to North America to begin the final preparations for a host of promo events and concert appearances in their continuing two-year long 25th Anniversary. After a lightening-quick four-month break spent in the band’s hulking south-pole fortress (“fighting penguins…” claimed GWAR front-thing ODERUS URUNGUS, “and working on a new album…”), the band reportedly made landfall late Wednesday evening, arriving in their signature bat-shaped helicopter at an undisclosed location.
In order to publicize their pressing agenda (and display the pressing of genitals), the band (GWAR) announced that on Friday, May 28th, at 10:00 p.m. E.S.T. ODERUS URUNGUS will hold an web-based press conference, which can be viewed at gwar.tv
, where he is expected to mouth-off about the insignificance of humanity and make a long and complicated set of demands. Viewers will be able to ask Oderus questions through the chat room, and he might even answer some of them. You can also check out the press conference streaming at MetalBlade.tv
