I just want to slug around the house and stream some binge-worthy classics. The kinds of movies you have seen a thousand times and never get tired of.

Here are all the best movies you have a hard time admitting you love, but you really do, the Best Guilty Pleasure Horror Movies on Shudder. If you are looking for something a little heavier check out all our lists here including the Best Movies of Shudder You Probably Haven’t Heard Of.
A possessed pair of jeans is brought to life to punish the unscrupulous practices of a trendy clothing company. Shipped to the company’s flagship store, Slaxx proceeds to wreak carnage on staff locked in overnight to set up the new collection.
Cast: Romane Denis, Brett Donahue, Sehar Bhojani
There is no better guilty pleasure than a horror film about killer jeans. It is funny and satirical and an all-around great time. Satirical horror is one of my favorites of the subgenres because they are exactly what a guilty pleasure should be. Slaxx is so silly it is smart and I loved every minute of it.
Tammy And The T-Rex
A jaw-dropping assault on the senses from the whacked out mind of cult filmmaker Stewart Raffill (Mac & Me), TAMMY AND THE T-REX features Denise Richards (Wild Things) in her first starring role, alongside Paul Walker (The Fast & the Furious), Terry Kiser (Weekend at Bernie’s), George ‘Buck’ Flower (They Live), and John F. Goff (Drive-In Massacre). Primarily seen in its heavily censored, PG-13 rated version, Vinegar Syndrome presents TAMMY AND THE T-REX restored, fully uncut for the first time on home video, with all of its gross-out gags and gratuitous decapitations, gut rippings, and head smashings, courtesy of special effects wizard John Carl Buechler (Mausoleum), completely intact.
Cast: Denise Richards, Paul Walker, Terry Kiser, George ‘Buck’ Flower
Lots of movies get described as over-the-top and bonkers, but only one film can actually live up to the hype. Before Walker and Richards were big names, they were starring in this little gem. I bet they wish never saw the light of day. The uncut version is even wilder than the original, and this is considered must viewing for any fan of the 80’s or comedic horror in general.
After forming a metal band in his conservative town, Brodie and his mates play a forbidden piece of music that unlocks the gates of hell. Before long, town folk start turning into demons to prepare the way for the arrival of a demonic entity who’s destined to take over the the world. Now it’s up to Brodie to stop the chaos before it’s too late. Taking inspiration from fellow New Zealander Peter Jackson’s DEAD ALIVE and heavy metal horror flicks like TRICK OR TREAT, Jason Lei Howden crafted a hilarious, ultra-gory delight that’s destined to become a cult classic.
Cast: Milo Cawthorne, James Blake, Kimberley Crossman
Deathgasm isn’t Black Metal so don’t expect a heavy metal soundtrack, it’s more tongue in cheek. Think more “Baby Metal”. That doesn’t mean it isn’t still super funny and enjoyable. This is a horror film for the thirteen-year-old boy in all of us. Just sit back and enjoy it the gory grossness. Not everything has to be so serious and it’s called a guilty pleasure for a reason. For any fans of horror comedy, this is tops on the Best Guilty Pleasure Horror Movies On Shudder.
May The Devil Take You Too
Two years ago, Alfie escaped demonic terror. Now, she’s once again forced to wage war against hell’s dark forces when a group of teenage orphans unleash the demonic spirit of their former caretaker. From Timo Tjahjanto, the riotous director of THE NIGHT COMES FOR US. A SHUDDER ORIGINAL
Cast: Chelsea Islan, Widika Sidmore, Baskara Mahendra, Hadijah Shahab
This wild and wacky film from Tjahjanto never strays from its lane. He knows exactly the kind of gory, gross-out film he is making and his ability to scare just enough to keep things from becoming ridiculous is brilliant. This is one sequel that is just as good as the original but both are worth watching.
After finding his wife with the pool man, a Beverly Hills dentist takes his feelings out on patients and others.
Cast: Corbin Bernsen, Linda Hoffman, Michael Stadvec
As someone who is absolutely terrified of the dentist, this film hits uncomfortably close to home. Maybe that’s part of my unhealthy obsession with it? Sadistic doctors are a dime a dozen. But Bernsen’s chomper watcher is as scary as it gets. It is an excellent example of 90’s era slashers that are heavier on cheese than blood, and that’s just fine by me.
Having outgrown a minivan, a stray boar roams the boundary line of an outback town and massacres several backpackers, before venturing in to hunt the locals. Bernie and his visiting relatives, the Monroe’s, swiftly come face to face with the feral beast and uncover that some monsters are better left in stories. A SHUDDER EXCLUSIVE.
Cast: John Jarratt, Simone Buchanan, Bill Moseley, Melissa Tkautz, Nathan Jones
If crazy Outback creature films are your thing, Boar will hit all the marks. The beast is massive and ridiculous and there are more than a few laughs in this kooky character-driven survival tale. I enjoyed every moment of this lite horror film that doesn’t take itself too seriously. It’s perfect for party viewing or if you just need some light-hearted fun. This animals gone wild deserves a place on the Best Guilty Pleasure Horror Movies On Shudder.
House on Haunted Hill
In this thriller based on the 1958 horror film, five people agree to spend the night in a haunted house in exchange for one million dollars . . . but they must live through the night to receive it.
Cast: Geoffrey Rush, Famke Janssen, Taye Diggs
I love this film. It’s the type of film you can see many times and catch little things each time you watch. This film has a lot to offer. There are many pretty people and the visuals are still freak me out. The ghostly doctors are frightening even after 20 years. It is probably why both this remake and the original are both still worth a watch.
