Most difficult movie names in English

When it comes to difficult English movie names, it’s not about length but the spelling and pronunciation. Sometimes, you could never understand why the filmmakers came up with that title, whether it was a marketing strategy or they actually ran out of ideas.

In the list below, we exclude the top longest movie titles because it’s almost impossible to remember their exact names.

1 – PHFFFT (1954)

Even a non-moviegoer could infer this is a comedy from its title. However, for a long time, people couldn’t understand the meaning behind this movie name. In fact, the Mark-Robson-directed film is based on a play named Phfft: Chronicle of a Happy Divorce.

Phffft revolves around a couple who experience a happy divorce.

2 – Killer Klowns From Outer Space (1988)

The only reason why this film ranks in top most difficult movie names is the word ‘klowns.’ Yes, it’s actually clowns but to make it sound more mysterious, the filmmaker decided to put it klowns.
