For times when you don’t watch to watch an acclaimed drama, a passionate romance movie, or gripping documentary on Netflix, there are B movies. These low budget movies are often in the horror or sci-fi genre, but due to their production value (or lack thereof), can be considered comedies, too. Unlike your big-budget, Oscar-winning feature films, these self-aware, over-the-top numbers use the word “entertainment” very loosely. They likely bombed at the box office (if they weren’t straight-to-video), but rest assured, they’re probably laughing at themselves, too. If you’re looking for mediocre special effects, the absolute disgraces of Rotten Tomatoes, have at it: these are the best B movies on Netflix.
