What's a scary story or movie that you've read/saw that was actually just totally ridiculous?
I got this idea after reading a short story by Stephen King yesterday called ’‘Chittery Teeth’’...the title says it all, this includes a set of toy chittery teeth that run around munching and eating people’s noses and penises off.
It was awesome, but it wasn’t scary because the premise just seemed so…comical. King has a lot of stories like that, like The Mangler, or The Night Flyer, about a vampire with a private plane license…presumably the same vampire who buys Ninja Turtle toys for his grandson in ’‘Popsy’’.
I once saw this slasher movie, although I forget the name, where some Mexican dude wearing a huge sombrero goes around severing off peoples’ hands and keeps them to himself, we discover later that his mom traumatized him as a child by constantly yelling at him not to touch anything…also, when he cut off the hand of some girl, she looks at her stump then calls him an asshole, apparently oblivious to physical pain.
I love horror, and I love finding things like that in its mediums, unintentional humour and whatnot, or at least, seemingly so…so this time, what is something horror related that was meant to be scary, but you just thought it was ridiculous or hilarious?
