If you haven't already seen the original Take written by @LittleSally you should totally check it out here 7 Movies My list just continues were Sally left off. (Kudos to Sally for the two Mel Brooks films listed!) I've also added some of my favorite quotes after each one. Now that respect has been paid on to the list!
Killer Klowns From Outer Space
Yes, what better way to start off the Halloween season than with a movie that makes light of current events. If you see a clown on the street and It looks like one of these guys PUNCH AND RUN!
"It was a spaceship. And there was these things, these killer clowns, and they shot popcorn at us! We barely got away!"
Army Of Darkness
What list is complete without some mention of an Evil Dead flick?! I would say this movie is more of a "by the way" or "what if" sequel to the Evil Dead movies; it still more or less borrows from the original perfectly. Just never mind about the other ending...it hasn't been mentioned in the series yet.
"Klaatu Barada NNNNNNecktie. Nectar. Nickel. Noodle. It's an "N" word, it's definitely an "N" word! Klaatu... Barada... N [clears his throat into his hand, then pauses] Okay... that's it!"
Ernest Scared Stupid
This is a personal favorite from my childhood and if you have kids in the room with you it's good for some shared laughter.
"Ya know what I mean Vern."
Tucker And Dale Vs Evil
Two Good Old Boys are just going to fix up their vacation cabin and do some fishing. Thanks to a local legend of a Hillbilly Killer from the past, a group of college kids mistakes these two guys for their would be killers. Confusion and laughter ensues as these two simpleminded friends keep trying to do the right thing by these kids who are out to "rescue" their recuperating friend by any means necessary! (Currently on Netflix)
"Don't be sorry, it's my fault. I should have known if a guy like me talked to a girl like you, somebody would end up dead."
Okay, this one tried at least at some points to be a serious sequel. But I found it just too funny to take it as anything other than a horror comedy. Andrew Divoff (The Djinn) always plays a good bad guy who is good with the jokes and can be very serious, but even he couldn't act the "bad" writing out of this movie.
"I believe you said you'd like to see your lawyer go fuck himself. I could arrange that."
Shaun Of The Dead
Thought I was going to leave without a Zombie flick on the list well... Suck it! Work always makes people feel like zombies but when it actually happens, hopefully you're not trying to save your relationship.
"If you get cornered...(hits himself on the head with cricket bat)...bash 'em in the head, that seems to work. Ow."
Now you'd have to be dead or newly born to have missed out on this one. Believe it or not, one of the original tag lines for this was "No mercy. No shame. No sequel." Sadly, when any movie makes a lot of money, it's grounds for a sequel but did we really need 4 more of these? Anyways, like any other true fan would say, the first one is always the best!
"We're here reporting live for "Black T.V.", white folks are dead so we gettin' the fuck out of here!"
Speaking of the original being the best, I couldn't leave without throwing this one out there. Honestly though you CANNOT fuck with this movie! At least while my generation is alive.
"We've been going about this all wrong. This Mr. Stay Puft's okay! He's a sailor, he's in New York; we get this guy laid, we won't have any trouble!"
Watch, enjoy and keep telling yourself "I AIN'T AFRAID OF NO GHOSTS!"
