As Halloween approaches, and we try to line up some good horror films to rent, it's hard not to think of the quality classics that scare us shitless--like The Omen, or Texas Chainsaw Massacre. But let's not overlook the raunchy un-classics that hold an equally important place in horror film history and--dare I say--our hearts.

- Child's Play 3 (1991)--Poor little Andy (Justin Whalin)--who has been haunted by that murderous Chucky doll for years--is now all grown up, and has landed in military school. Chucky's still after him, though, and doing things like murdering people, making people murder people (he switches out the school's war game paintball pellets with real bullets), and being totally racially insensitive (like gleefully declaring "Chucky's gonna be a bro!" before possessing the soul of a black student).

- Leprechaun 4: In Space (1996)--If you have all the gold in the world, the next natural step is becoming King of the Universe--and what better way to do this than to marry the Princess of the Universe? Despite his noble quest, the Leprechaun (Warwick Davis) quickly gets in trouble with some space marines before some mind-boggling scenarios ensue, including a spider/scorpion DNA serum and some cyborg scientists gone bonkers.

- Erotic Nights of the Living Dead (1980)--I first realized that Freud has a lot of good points when I noticed that sometimes I'm horny, but want to be scared, too. I couldn't decide how to satiate both desires until I stumbled upon Erotic Nights. In this, the campiest of the camp skin flick, a land developer buys an exotic island, thinking he's in a paradise of horny hookers--until the zombies who inhabit the island rise from their graves to kill the dudes and make sweet, sweet love to the women. Also, this film will teach you a titillating new way to uncork a champagne bottle.
