10 Best Horror-Comedies for Halloween, Ranked
"Much like any roller coaster, the manufactured fright of horror movies can be a lot of fun. Often times, horror is cheap to make, and consequently, it's earned a poor reputation. Many of the stories can feel exploitative, or redundant. But fear is an unflinching, primal reflection of ourselves, and reveals what society perceives to be monstrous. Most are exciting tales of survival, but there are countless sub-genres.
While some horror can explore social commentary, horror-comedies truly stand apart. They use the irony of innate ferocity, the cinematic hyperbole, or fan knowledge to draw out big laughs. This makes them a great companion for Halloween, and more accessible for those who usually detest horror."
