Favorite Comedy/Horror Films

  • Oct 18, 2011
It sounds like an oxymoron that a film can be both hilarious and scary at the same time. This is my first shot at some of my favorite of this genre.
1
The Lost Boys
The two Corey's go after Keifer Sutherland with their holy water water pistols. Diane Weist dating the head vampire. Jamie Gertz as a temptress. Great stuff!
2
Fright Night (1985 film)
Rhoddy McDowell as an elderly vampire hunter going after Chris Sarandon with his teenage assistant.
3
Ghostbusters
A whole slew of all-time quotable lines and the evil Stay Puff Marshmellow man too!
See the full review, "Hilarious then, hilarious today!".
4
Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein
Bela Lugosi, Lon Chaney Jr., Vincent Price, and Glenn Strange go toe to toe with the boys!
See the full review, "What a Cast! What Laughs".
5
An American Werewolf in London
"Jack you don't look so good." "I'm dead, what do you expect." Let's just stay away from The Slaughtered Lamb.
6
Zombieland (2009)
All the rules for dealing with Zombies and staying alive. Even Bill Murray playing himself is great!
7
The Return of the Living Dead (1985)
Night of the Living Dead was based on a true event! "Brains!!"
See the full review, "Surprisingly Good!".

Awesome list, Michael! The only one I haven't seen is #4, so I'm going to have to look out for that one.

How about Abbot and Costello in "Hold That Ghost" - one of my personal favorites. http://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=Abbot+an...That+Ghost%22&FORM=VDRE

That one was good along with The Time of Their Lives.

Nice list! Lost Boys cracked me up; I need to see that one again, and Fright Night is one of my all time favorites, and Abbott and Costello was a hoot!

I've seen all of them except for Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein. Of those you listed, American Werewolf is my favorite. Cool list!

Great list. I've definitely been in the Halloween spirit watching a lot of these. My personal favorite along with "Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein" is Mel Brooks' "Young Frankenstein".

I actually saw the musical on Broadway and really liked it.
October 18, 2011
I can't imagine anyone other than the original cast in their roles so I don't know how I'd feel about the musical. I had similar problems with "The Producers" and "Spamalot!"
October 18, 2011
I saw Spamalot and it definately paled in comparison to Monty Python and the Holy Grail. "Your mother was a hamster and your father smelled of elderberries."

I'm not sure what I'm doing for Halloween yet, but a horror movie marathon doesn't sound half bad... :)
October 18, 2011
I know what I am doing....looking for 'BRRRAAAAIIIINNNSSSSSS....." LOL!
October 18, 2011
Well, duh. I mean, BESIDES that ;P
 
October 18, 2011
oh yeah! where is SHAUN OF THE DEAD? Nice and timely list for Shocktober!
October 18, 2011
Heard it is quite funny but I haven't seen it so that is why it is not here. I will look for it with the Halloween filicks
October 18, 2011
When you get a chance to check out "Shaun of the Dead" I also recommend turning it into a zombie comedy double feature with the Canadian indie film "Fido" about a boy and his pet zombie.
October 18, 2011
Will do.
October 18, 2011
I may be alone in this, but actuallly thought TREMORS and EIGHT LEGGED FREAKS were great horror-comedies too!
October 18, 2011
I saw bits of both but couldn't get into either one.
