Horror Comedy Genre

Anyone else fans of this genre? some of my favorites include Return of the living dead, House, Shawn of The Dead, Evil Dead 2, Army of Darkness, Idle Hands, Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein, Abbott and Costello Meet the Killer,Abbott and Costello Meet the Invisible Man, Abbott and Costello Meet Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy.

Army of darkness is one of my favorite movies

Love the genre. Some of my favs:


Return Of The Living Dead

Evil Dead 2

Army Of Darkness

Bride Of Chucky

American Werewolf In London



re-animator forgot all about that one of my all time favorite films. American Werewolf and London is great too. You see idle hands?

A good horror comedy is even harder to find than a good horror movie. So I get very excited when I see either one of those. Evil Dead 2 to me is the greatest horror comedy, unlikely to be ever topped. Re-Animator is the only one that comes even close.

I should see Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein someday.

yea the abbott and the costello films are hilarious.

You see idle hands?

Watched it some years ago. All I remember is Jessica Alba in an angel costume. :angel:

Yea i seen it about a year ago just remembered about it probably going to watch it again tonight, its really really good film and really underrated, nothing spectacular directing wise but the writing and acting is pretty good here, it bombed when it first came out in 1999. Plus jessica alba is my favorite modern day actress not the best but i enjoy her acting more than most modern day actresses. If she would have done more films like idle hands and sin city her career would have so much better.

What Re-animator film does a penis fight a sewer rat?

Edit: It’s Beyond Reanimator.

I used to rent shitloads of horror films when I was around 10 to 13 (Probably atleast 2 every week for 2 or 3 years), so I have alot of weird horror movie scenes memorised in my brain. :stuck_out_tongue:

beyond was ok, bride of the re-animator wasn’t so great but i liked it more than beyond.

I was going to mention Troma films, but IMO they are not horror comedies they are almost like there own little genre.



Oh i love this movie to: "What the hell is going on, i mean what the hell is going on!"

some of my favs:

Shawn of the dead

Bad Taste

Dead Alive

Evil Dead

I haven’t seen dead alive in about 3 years, i own a VHS copy of it, but the first time i seen it i didn’t really like it that much. I have to re-watch it. Bad taste i been wanting to see that for a while i seen parts of it online one time, not the full movie though, i gotta pick that up.

It’s Braindead not Dead Alive :stuck_out_tongue:

brain dead is the European title.

anyone like sleepaway camp 2, its sorta a slasher spoof/horror comedy.

Anybody seen any of Frank Hennenlotter movies, i’ve been wanting to get into his movies for along time now.

Bubba Ho-tep

wanted to see that since it came out never seen it, i really gotta pick it up cambell is great.

^ It is a great movie. They are coming out with a SE dvd of Bubba Ho-tep.
