By Doug Norrie | Updated

Sometimes you need just a little silliness on a movie night, flicks that just don’t take themselves seriously really at all. And the good news there is that a Netflix secret code exists just for Campy Movies. We’ve taken a look at High Brow Horror, Witchcraft, and also Schemers & Scammers. Now we’ll get into the ones that are light, funny, and of course, campy.

Starship Troopers

Welcome to the future, where high school football and intergalactic warfare go hand in hand! Dive Starship Troopers on Netflix, the ultimate campy movie, a satirical military sci-fi adventure where Johnny Rico and his friends sign up to fight for the Earth against an arachnid alien species.

Directed by the ever-provocative Paul Verhoeven, this film isn’t just about epic space battles and bug hunts; it’s a biting commentary on propaganda, militarism, and societal conformity. With its campy dialogue, over-the-top action sequences, and unforgettable visual effects, Starship Troopers offers a unique blend of thrills and dark humor.

So gear up, soldier! Because in this wild ride on Netflix, the only good bug is a dead bug. Would you like to know more?

When the Queen of Country, Dolly Parton, sprinkles a bit of her magic on a Christmas tale, you know you’re in for a heartwarming ride!

Netflix’s campy movie Dolly Parton’s Christmas On The Square welcomes you to a quaint town where modern-day Scrooge, Regina Fuller, returns with plans to evict everyone and sell the land to a mall developer.

But here comes the twist: Dolly, as a glitzy angel, has a few melodies and lessons up her sparkly sleeves.

Directed by Debbie Allen, this musical extravaganza is packed with toe-tapping numbers, emotional roller coasters, and the ever-radiant presence of Dolly herself. In Dolly’s world, there’s always room for a miracle… and a song!

Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein

Hold onto your lab goggles because Netflix’s campy movie Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein is not your typical stroll down Mad Scientist Lane.

David Harbour (yes, our beloved Hopper from Stranger Things) stars as, well, David Harbour. He embarks on a zany quest to uncover the truths about his actor father’s televised stage play about – you guessed it – Dr. Frankenstein and his monster.

But trust us, this mockumentary is as delightfully convoluted as its title suggests. Poking fun at theatrical melodramas and featuring hammy performances, vintage commercials, and more twists than a pretzel factory, this short film is a comedic goldmine.

If you’re yearning for a dose of absurdist comedy (that’s quick, just 30 minutes) with a sprinkle of existential crisis, let Netflix’s Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein be your hilariously confusing guide.

Da Kath & Kim Code

Pour yourself a glass of chardonnay and get ready for a Hornbag holiday! Da Kath & Kim Code, a Netflix campy movie, invites you to spend Christmas with Australia’s most hilariously dysfunctional mother-daughter duo.

Kath Day-Knight and her foxy daughter Kim Craig (nee Day) are back with more high fashion, juicy gossip, and calamitous adventures.

When the ladies discover a Da Vinci Code-like mystery, their clueless antics and misadventures spiral into a festive fiasco that’s pure comedy gold.

Created by Jane Turner and Gina Riley, this special is a treat for fans and newcomers alike. It’s noice, it’s different, it’s unusual!
