6 Monster Movies With a Taste of the Funny


There are a ton of great monster movies out there and there are also a ton of bad monster movies out there. Today I am going to run down a list of fantastic monster movies but these are not all about the scary as much as they are all about the funny. There are some really great and really gorey horror movies out there that have just as much chuckle as they do dis-embowling.

So with that said here is a look at 6 Monster Movies With a Taste of the Funny. With each film I have included its rating in our database based on horror reviews as well as the trailer.

Gremlins: This is easily one of Joe Dantes best films. The story of a little cute and cuddly critter called Gizmo that when fed after midnight turns into my ex-girlfriend. Err sorry I meant turns into a Gremlin which is hell bent on destruction. Its amazing what a pizza and a beer after midnight can do to you. Truly funny this film goes to show that when you do not follow the simplest of rules your town will be laid to waste and your life will be destroyed or even worse.. taken from you by little Green Men that are not from outter space. The film has a 90% approval rating with readers on our site and I can not agree more.

"Don't expose him to bright light. Don't ever get him wet. And don't ever, ever feed him after midnight." This sage advice is ignored midway through Gremlins, with devastating results. This comic Joe Dante effort is set in a N...

Critters: Oh man is critters a keeper. It is not so much ha ha funny as it is b-movie classic funny. Carnivorous aliens from outter space come down to earth to lay waste and make dinner of a farmer and his family and their only hope is intergalactic bounty hunters who have come for the Christ. This movie scared the crap out of me as a kid but I will admit that it had its own form of humor right down to the bounty hunters. Definite keeper!

Arachnophobia: I am scared shitless of giant spiders. So a movie about spiders that are taking over and wiping out the neighbourhood is all kinds of genius.This movie did two things. Scared me stupid and made me laugh my ass off. It stars Jeff Daniels and John Goodman and tells the story of a family overrun by spiders who must team up with a quirky spider hunter to save the world.. or at least their neighbourhood from Venezuellan spiders out to wipe them out!

Tremors: Tremors will go down in history as one of the greatest monster movies ever made. Funny, creepy and an all around good time its one of my all time favorites and  I have practically ruined the VHS Tape I bought it on I have played it so many times. A couple of port-a-potty cleaners and handymen find themselves turned heroes when a massive underground monster comes to town and starts making lunch of the local sheep, people, cars and even the general store. Filled with witty one liners and enough carnage to keep any horror fan interested. Tremors is an absolute classic.

8 legged freaks: This one stars David Arquette and much like Arachnophobia if you have a thing for spiders you probably will be really bothered by this one. Its the tale of giant spiders taking over a small town and how they must band together to fight off... the 8 legged freaks. This film is the definition of cheesy b-movie horror with lots of gags, lots of laughs and lots of over the top sillyness. 8 legged Freaks is a keeper.

What do you get when you cross toxic waste with a bunch of exotic spiders? Eaten!!! The townies of Prosperity, Arizona, will all become a screaming smorgasbord if mutated arachnids as big as SUVs have their way in this comedy/...

Deep Rising: Last on the list and the most gruesomes of them all is Deep Rising. This film is not a ha ha funny movie by any means. Deep Rising is the definition of gruesome. It features an insane amount of carnage and gore and some really funny witty one liners and scenes that will make you chuckle and groan all at the same time. Dark, disturbing, funny and gruesome its my kind of monster movie and to this day BEGS for a sequel. I bought it for $3.99 in the discount bin and it has made ALOT of my top lists. If you have not seen Deep Rising you need to!
