10. Killer Klowns from Outer Space

11. Bad Taste

I'll forgive you guys for putting Battle: Los Angeles on a list of any kind.

Ha, the list was syndicated content so it wasn't written by ourselves. We didn't mind Battle Los Angeles but it certainly wouldn't have made our own personal list. Yours is a great selection. Still need to see XTRO. Mars Attacks eh? I haven't seen that for about 15 years. Maybe it's time to revisit it?

Mars Attacks is arguably Tim Burton's most unsung masterpiece. It's a cacophony of tonal shifts and styles that are unique to that film. It's not good in a traditional sense, but goddamn if it isn't one of the most entertaining dumpster fires you're ever likely to see.

Great list Michael. I'd have a few of those on mine - plus 'Signs' and 'Edge of Tomorrow'. Also, does 'Monsters vs Aliens' count? ;)

    I enjoyed Annabelle: Creation. There was a lot to like about it - however, am I the only one who thinks that seeing the demon has a negative effect on the scares? Some things are best left to the imagination I think...

    Bloody Disgusting have dropped their star rating (or skulls) system. It's something we've been discussing here at YGROY. How much do you value star ratings when you read a review? If you see that a film has a two and a half star rating for instance, are you less likely to read the review?
