Article: Top 10 Comedy Horror Movies

10.Arachnophobia

A strange spider from the depths of a jungle is accidentally transported back to the good old USA. Through numerous coincidences and accidents. I actually growing up watching this film and it has got a good story, it is well casted and this is a well-made film, the casting is spot on and especially John Goodman is superb in his role and, this is watchable and it’s fun.

9.Shaun Of The Dead

The uneventful, aimless lives of a London electronics salesman and his layabout roommate are disrupted by the zombie apocalypse. Definitely one of the best Simon Pegg film as it got an all – star cast, it is generally funny and this is an all-British film and the main lead is likeable and this is a well-meaning film, it might be predictable for some people but this is actually a really good film.

8.Zombieland (2009 – 2019)

A decade after their first adventure, the zombie – bashing team of Columbus, Tallahassee, Wichita, and Little Rock move to the American heartland. Here, they face off against evolved zombies, fellow survivors. Both films are consistent and they are exciting plus the characters are great, these films are memorable and it got comic one liner, it is one of those films you can watch on a rainy day.

7.Gremlins

A young man inadvertently breaks three important rules concerning his new pet and unleashes a horde of malevolently mischievous monsters on a small town. One of the best Christmas film as this try to be something different, it might be rather dated but the idea to this film is certainly spot on and it is well made, it not for the younger generation but it still a classic film that you can revisit.

6.The Addams Family

Con artist plan to fleece an eccentric family using an accomplice who claims to be their long – lost uncle. The acting is certainly spot on and they certainly capture their characters, and that what made this film really good. This film is certainly memorable and it will drawn you in from start to finish, it is a slow burner type of film that didn’t take itself too seriously and that is the key to this film.

5.Young Frankenstein

An American grandson of the infamous scientist, struggling to prove that his grandfather was not as insane as people believe, is invited to Transylvania, where he discovers the process that reanimates a dead body. Surprisingly this is a really good film and it can be really funny, it might not be for everyone but it certainly worth a look, it will surprised you and this is superbly made.

4.Dark Shadows

An imprisoned vampire, Barnabas Collins, is set free and returns to his ancestral home, where his dysfunctional descendants are in need of his protection. Gorgeous looking film that will drawn you in from the first frame, it will definitely divided people as some will like this and some don’t but the idea to this film is superb, it also didn’t take itself too seriously and this is fun and it got a good cast.

3.Ghostbusters

Three parapsychologists forced out of their university funding set up shop as a unique ghost removal service in New York City, attracting frightened yet sceptical customers. For me personally I actually growing up watching this film, the three leads got chemistry together and this is believable and it didn’t feel rushed, the pacing is excellent and this is suitable if you wanted something different.

2.The Haunted Mansion

A realtor and his wife and children are summoned to a mansion, which they soon discover is haunted, and while they attempt to escape, he learns an important lesson about the family he has neglected. Personally I don’t really get the hate for this film, as this is entertaining and it got a likeable lead and brim with comic one liner, this is pure escapism and you actually care with these characters.

1.Goosebumps

A teenager teams up with the daughter of young adult author R.L. Stine after the writer’s imaginary demons are set free on the town of Madison, Delaware. Well casted with amazing CGI/SFX that made this film amazing, it balance the heartfelt moment with the action and that work really well, it got a brilliant story and this is eye catching, it might not be for everyone but this is entertaining and it is pure escapism.

  1. These are all great selections Mark. I think I can add some more good ones to your list:
    1. Beetlejuice
    2. What We Do in the Shadows – good film but I preferred the TV series
    3. An American Werewolf in London – some great horror effects and funny too, especially the scene in the pub on the moors.
    4. Braindead (1992) – One of Peter Jackson’s early films, a complete gore fest!

  2. I like the sound of Beetlejuice, An American Werewolf in London as I like John Landis (he made Burke & Hare which I really enjoyed) What We Do in The Shadows sounded different, plus I quite like Peter Jackson as a director. Thank you for the recommendation from you Rob
