Monday, December 6 by Karsun

If you like your comedy movies with a little horror or perhaps your horror movies with some laughs, now you can learn about five best comedy horror movies so that you can have the best of both worlds. These are just a sample of some of the great comedy horror movies. While they are subjective, I'm sure you can find a favorite comedy horror in the bunch.

  1. "Zombieland." This 2009 comedy horror starred Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone and a surprise cameo from Billy Murray. It is about a the nation being taken over by zombies and the group of unlikely allies that travel across the country, killing them as they go. The comedy is excellent and the zombies, blood and gore are top notch.
  2. "Shaun of the Dead." This 2004 comedy horror showcases Simon Pegg as a regular guy who just so happens to end up having to survive a zombie takeover. It has some of the most hilarious scenes involving the killing of zombies and anyone with a sense of humor will at least appreciate parts of this movie.
  3. "Evil Dead II: Dead by Dawn." This follow up to the more serious "Evil Dead" movie added a lot of humor to the franchise that would spawn more sequels such as "Army of Darkness." While the first movie was more of a campy horror movie, this one added humor to the horror, making it a favorite among fans of comedy horror movies.
  4. "Ghostbusters." Another older movie is 1984's "Ghostbusters." While some consider this strictly comedy, it does have a horror mix to it that fits it perfectly in the comedy horror category. Starring Bill Murray, Sigourney Weaver and Dan Akryoyd, it is about a group of "ghost busters" that must save their city from an evil demon. The special effects are quite good considering the age of the movie and its uniqueness makes it a cult favorite.
  5. "Scary Movie." This franchise has become quite popular in spoofing horror movies, which makes it an excellent candidate for the comedy horror section. Some may consider this strictly comedy but with the spoofs on popular horror movies, it can be classified as both. Some may find this franchise a little over the top but it does have its moments of brilliance. These movies always combine a few of the horror movies themes of that era and turn it into one big spoof.

There you have it, the five best comedy horror movies. You may have seen all of these but if you like comedy horror and haven't seen them, this is an excellent list to get started on viewing.

    What about Motel Hell, Fearless Vampire Killers, and Return of the Living Dead. All three of these are worlds better than anything on this list (except Shaun of the Dead). Are you just googling random shit?
