COMEDY OF HORRORS: Take a break from the screams with a few laughs while watching these funny, fearsome films.

  • The Return of the Living Dead (1985): Dan O’Bannon’s twist on George Romero’s classic adds ’80s punks and a sly, self-conscious sense of humor.
  • Hell Baby (2013): Fans of Reno 911! will love seeing Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant’s trademark comedy brought to the horror genre.
  • Bad Taste (1987): With this story of aliens craving human flesh, Peter Jackson’s directorial debut exercises his creative muscle and the audience’s gag reflex.
  • Attack of the Killer Tomatoes (1977): With a minuscule budget and enormous fruit, this cult favorite doesn’t take itself too seriously.
  • Teeth (2007): This satire about a woman’s response to a violent attack has a blackly comic sense of humor and, well, teeth.
  • April Fool’s Day (1986): Led by Muffy, a group of ’80s preppies find their trip to a family vacation home isn’t relaxing in this surprising slasher.
  • Motel Hell (1980): A horror fan’s horror comedy, this gory satire references classics including The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Night of the Living Dead.
  • The Little Shop of Horrors (1960): Before the stage musical and the 1986 movie, this Roger Corman original (and we do mean original) introduced the world to Audrey Jr.
  • Hatchet (2007): Prepare for an ab workout: this profoundly gross ode to old-school horror will alternately make audiences vomit and guffaw.

I've been a fan of horror and slasher movies for as long as I can remember. I consider the original Halloween to be the best horror movie of all time and my guilty pleasure horror flick would be The Exorcist III. You can find me on Twitter at @406Northlane or TikTok @406Northlane where I'm sure I'll offend you at least once a day.
