My Top Ten Comedy/Horror Films

A Listmania! list by K. Driscoll
The list author says: "An offbeat sub-genre that just happens to contain some of my most favorite movies."
Evil Dead II
1.  Evil Dead II DVD ~ Bruce Campbell
The list author says:
  "Not only do I firmly believe this to be the funniest horror movie ever, I also feel it's the greatest movie of all time...I'm not even kidding about that.  It serves to both mock exploitation and comedy horror, while at the same time it tops them all.  Great stuff!"
$19.60   Used & New from: $0.01
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (819 customer reviews) | 5 customer discussions

Dead Alive
2.  Dead Alive DVD ~ Timothy Balme
The list author says:
  "'I kick *ss for the lord!', 'That's my mother you're pissing on'; I'm not sure if this dialogue within the context of Dead Alive could possibly be any better.  This is the most putrid film ever made.  I actually sympathized for a minute with an undead alimentary tract, after it farted...that is so great."
$59.95   Used & New from: $7.98
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (499 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Shaun of the Dead [DVD] (2004)
3.  Shaun of the Dead [DVD] (2004) DVD ~ Kate Ashfield
The list author says:
  "I'm not sure you can get funnier than this.  The best part is, this movie seems accessible to a mainstream audience for some reason.  Hilarious throughout and it didn't even turn my wife away from it."
$7.48   Used & New from: $0.01
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (871 customer reviews)

The Return of the Living Dead
4.  The Return of the Living Dead DVD ~ Clu Gulager
The list author says:
  "Absolutely hysterical movie.  Originally born out of the Night of Living Dead franchise, this film came into it's own in a unique way.  When Toby Hooper dropped out, the screenwriter Dan O'Bannon, who wrote Alien, took over and turned this into a campy zombie cult classic."
$8.35   Used & New from: $2.08
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (394 customer reviews) | 6 customer discussions

Re-Animator
5.  Re-Animator DVD ~ Jeffrey Combs
The list author says:
  "Based on the H.P. Lovecraft story about Herb West, The Reanimator.  Stuart Gordon directs and Jeffery Combs plays the title character as straight and nerdy as possible.  It's just what this film needed to be as funny as it was."
Used & New from: $10.64
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (281 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

An American Werewolf in London
6.  An American Werewolf in London DVD ~ Jenny Agutter
The list author says:
  "Loaded with irony, great inside-jokes and some offbeat but completely appropriate songs.  This had both scary and amusing moments."
$4.73   Used & New from: $0.01
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (461 customer reviews)

Bubba Ho-Tep (Limited Collector's Edition)
7.  Bubba Ho-Tep (Limited Collector's Edition) DVD ~ Bruce Campbell
The list author says:
  "'I think you know what I'm gettin' at Mr. President. We're gonna kill us a mummy!' Elvis and JFK are still alive and living in a nursing home.  Elvis has to use his kung-fu from his wheelchair to kill a mummy.  I'm not sure anything else needs to be said."
$19.96   Used & New from: $0.01
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (484 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Dog Soldiers
8.  Dog Soldiers DVD ~ Sean Pertwee
The list author says:
  "Just the right dose of comedy in this werewolf movie.  Neil Marshall, also the director of the Descent, throws dozens of inside jokes and cult horror lore at us to tribute some great movies that Dog Soldiers owes some homage to. Appropriately funny and scary movie."
Used & New from: $0.94
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (421 customer reviews) | 6 customer discussions

See buying options
Cemetery Man (1994)
9.  Cemetery Man (1994) DVD ~ Rupert Everett
The list author says:
  "Rupert Everett stars as the title character who is bored with his job at a cemetery where the dead don't stay dead for very long.  Another black comedy gorefest that consistently stays refreshing and funny."
$62.99   Used & New from: $16.00
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (178 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions
