Default What is your top comedy horror?

A really good horror comedy be it intentional or not is a rare beast indeed.....

There are 2 that I come back to time and time again and always go down well when I have friends over:

Nightmare City has it all, great sound track, amazingly bad acting/script/effects, epic contrived ending. Also one of the best panning shots in motion picture history....maybe a slight exaggeration there

Dead Heat: Great spin on the standard buddy cop movie. Awesome camp dialogue, pure 80's trash.


Both have so many rewind moments.....

So my question is what is your favourite horror comedy?

Memorable titles I go back to include;

RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD
BRAINDEAD
SHAUN OF THE DEAD
AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON

However,king of the horror hilarity for me,has to be Jackson's BAD TASTE.


Tell you one thing.....ISLAND OF DEATH got plenty of laughs at it's Glasgow screening in October....

All the ones you list are superb, have a massive soft spot for Bad Taste. 'The head shot is the only real stoppa'!.

Serial Mom for me... the beating to death with a leg of lamb is inspired!

For my top horror comedy I would find it hard to decide between Evil Dead II and Braindead. Probably with Bad Taste coming a close third.

Others I'm a big fan of are:

Shaun of the Dead
Street Trash
Return of the Living Dead
Bio Zombie
Versus
Meet the Feebles

Shaun of the Dead (because I want to marry Edgar Wright)
Dead and Breakfast...sweet sweet zombie rockabilly.
Of course Evil Dead II and Army of Darkness
My Best Friend is a Vampire (which I always liked more than Once Bitten although Jim Carrey is the best)
Dead Alive ("I kick arse for the Lord!!")
Oh man...so many more that I know I am forgetting...I will have to post again I'm sure.
