30 Best Horror Comedies As Of Dec 2009


Time to have a look at the 30 Best Horror Comedies based off reviews by staff and community members of our site. This list is generated based off review ratings and our own secret sauce. In order for a film to appear in the top 30 it needs to have a certain number of reviews... and of course meet the requirements of our secret sauce. I love 50% of the movies on this list my must buys from this list would be;

  • Evil Dead
  • Tremors
  • Feast
  • Shaun of the Dead
  • Army of Darkness
  • Slither

If you use this Top 30 as a basis for buying horror comedies you really can not do to wrong. On this list the only films I disapprove of are The Mummy 3 which was just down right terrible and Undead.. which was not terrible but it also was not awesome... but alas to each their own. 

This list is the consensus from our site. So if you do not like this list change it!! Submit your reviews and help keep these lists tip top!
