What’s in a name? Quite a lot, as it happens! You’d never expect a film like Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus to win an Oscar, for instance. But you could certainly expect to have a good time watching it. Here are 20 movie titles that’ll have you rubbing your eyes in disbelief. 

 

 

 

Killer Tomatoes Eat France! 

Killer Tomatoes Eat France!

You can't go wrong with a mutant vegetable movie

Ah, you can't go wrong with a mutant vegetable movie. This franchise gained notoriety thanks to a sequel which featured George Clooney in his pre-political, mullet-sporting years.

Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus 

Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus

A mega shark. A giant octopus. A fight.

A total Ronseal title. We’re in no doubt what the movie contains. A mega shark. A giant octopus. A fight. Unless we’re totally being duped, and it’s actually a thoughtful tale of two retired sea-beast-named wrestlers coming together in order to… It isn’t is it? Thought not!

Slap Her, She’s French 

Slap Her, She’s French

It’s an excuse to make fun of people who aren’t American

This crazy title hides a lame teen comedy starring Coyote Ugly's Piper Perabo as a beret-wearing French exchange student. Basically, it’s an excuse to make fun of people who aren’t American. Classy!

Santa with muscles 

Santa with muscles

Remember a time when Hulk Hogan was a major box office draw?

Remember a time when Hulk Hogan was a major box office draw? That was when he made films like this, playing a millionaire who gets amnesia and thinks he’s Santa. With big muscles, naturally.

They Saved Hitler’s Brain 

They Saved Hitler’s Brain

The film concerns a bunch of mad Nazi scientists

And not for neurological research purposes either. The film concerns a bunch of mad Nazi scientists (and really, are there actually any sane ones?) as they attempt to resurrect Hitler by preserving his brain. 

Help! I’m a Fish 

Help! I’m a Fish

Fish can’t actually speak

We’d probably say the same if we were transformed into a little fishy by a mysterious potion. Well, something like that anyway. Fish can’t actually speak, so we’d probably float around looking surprised instead. 

Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead 

Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead

We guess that’s what you get for eating so much KFC! As you might imagine, Poultrygeist is all about people getting haunted by the evil ghost of an evil chicken. What ever will they think of next?

The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed Up Zombies 

The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed Up Zombies

Possibly a contender for the most far-fetched film title of all time

Possibly a contender for the most far-fetched film title of all time. Although to be honest, the memorable moniker is probably the best thing about this shambling sixties zombie fare.

Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death 

Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death

We’re not entirely sure what an avocado jungle is

We’re not entirely sure what an avocado jungle is. Perhaps all is explained in this elaborately-named 1989 film? Or perhaps the action focuses on cannibal women… We think the latter is most likely!

Surf Nazis Must Die! 

Surf Nazis Must Die!

Surf Nazis Must Die is as tongue-in-cheek as you can get

Who wouldn’t want to see a movie with a title as outrageous as this? Both bodacious and radical, Surf Nazis Must Die is as tongue-in-cheek as you can get, so don’t expect any serious commentary (as if you would).

Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers 

Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers

Guess what you’ll see in this movie? If you answered ‘a cerebral plotline involving blues legend John Lee Hooker retiring to the Canadian wilderness to become a lumberjack’, you’d be wrong.

Killer Klowns from Outer Space 

Killer Klowns from Outer Space

Rule number one: if you’re going to have a bad movie title, at least try and have the courtesy to spell it properly! Then again, if your movie is about murderous alien clowns, does it actually matter?

Santa Claus Conquers the Martians 

Santa Claus Conquers the Martians

If you’ve ever wanted to see the jolly fat man kick alien bottom, this movie is right up your chimney

We can quite easily imagine Santa rocking a double barrelled shotgun and taking on a bunch of aliens. What that says about us, we’re not sure. But if you’ve ever wanted to see the jolly fat man kick alien bottom, this movie is right up your chimney.

Space Chimps 

Space Chimps

Chimps… In… Spaaaaace! That’s literally all that this film is about

Chimps… In… Spaaaaace! That’s literally all that this film is about. If you love seeing monkeys monkeying around in the vast and unconquerable reaches of outer space, you should totally watch this film.

Space Zombie Bingo

Space Zombie Bingo

We’re not sure what a full house will get you. Presumably you’ll win a tasty dish of baked brains. And correct us if we’re wrong, but are those ladies wearing kitchen foil shoes?

Don’t be a Menace to South Central while Drinking your Juice in the Hood 

Don’t be a Menace to South Central while Drinking your Juice in the Hood

Technically this Wayans Brothers comedy should be let off for having a mad title since it is a spoof. But we still prefer it when they stick to sensible monikers like Scary Movie...

Zombie Strippers

Zombie Strippers

Blink and you'd have missed this movie's cinema release in 2008

Blink and you'd have missed this movie's cinema release in 2008. Robert 'Freddy Krueger' Englund and Jenna Jameson star in this far-fetched tale of strippers who are turned into flesh-eaters.

Hell Comes to Frogtown 

Hell Comes to Frogtown

Another corking title attached to a not very good movie

Another corking title attached to a not very good movie, this was intended as a starring vehicle for awesome eighties wrestler 'Rowdy' Roddy Piper. Looks like it didn't work. Wonder if the Battletoads are anywhere in this film?

Rat Pfink a Boo Boo 

Rat Pfink a Boo Boo

As well as the bizarre typo in the title, the most interesting thing about this film is how it switches from a gritty crime drama into a camp superhero comedy at around the 40 minute mark. 

Die you Zombie Bastards! 

Die you Zombie Bastards!

All the zombies in this film were born to unmarried parents

It’s not a swear. All the zombies in this film were born to unmarried parents. They would have gone with the title ‘Die you Zombie Illegitimate Children!’, but it didn’t fit on the poster.
