TV and Movies·Posted on Sep 24, 201918 Horror-Comedies That Are Frighteningly Funny👻It's time to get spooky...but not too spooky. 🎃by Angelica MartinezBuzzFeed StaffFacebookPinterestTwitterMailLink 1. Ready or Not Mythology Entertainment, Vinson Films Grace marries into a wealthy family, though on her wedding night she learns that she must beat them in a challenge in order to be accepted. Having built their empire in board games, they invite her to a nightlong game of hide-and-seek that quickly turns lethal. 2. Shaun of the Dead Rogue Pictures Shaun's a bit down on his luck, to say the least, but must snap out of it quickly when a zombie invasion is threatening everyone he loves. It's a rom-com, but with zombies, need I say more? 3. What We Do in the Shadows FX Networks, Unison Films, Defender Films, Funny or Die Just think of this franchise as The Office but with vampire roommates instead of coworkers. It's written and directed in part by actual internet sweetheart Taika Waititi, and there's a 2014 movie (which Taika stars in!) and a 2019 spin-off TV series of the same name. 4. Wellington Paranormal TVNZ 2 Also a spin-off from the What We Do in the Shadows universe, this TV series follows a pair of cops investigating paranormal happenings in Wellington, New Zealand. Also created and written by Taika with Jemaine Clement, it's a killer mockumentary that's perfect for the spooky season. 5. Housebound Semi-Professional Productions Another New Zealand movie, Housebound is both a ghost story and a murder mystery. After Kylie is forced to stay in her childhood home on house arrest, she quickly learns that her mother's claims of paranormal activity are true and decides to take matters into her own hands. 6. Scream Queens Fox Network Scream Queens is the perfect self-aware satire when it comes to horror, and there are hints of a possible reboot in the future. The TV series is a modern take on your traditional slasher flick, with an all-star cast to boot. Ariana Grande?? Nick Jonas?? JOHN STAMOS?? You read that right. It's got mystery, it's got a masked killer, and it's full of absolute zingers. 7. Santa Clarita Diet Netflix Santa Clarita Diet is an update of the typical zombie horror flick. Sheila (Drew Barrymore) goes from your average Realtor to a flesh-eating zombie, but with a bit of a twist. It's just as gory as it is funny, and all three seasons are available to stream on Netflix. 8. Los Espookys HBO From Saturday Night Live star Fred Armisen and writer Julio Torres, Los Espookys is just as dreamy and weird as it is funny. Mostly in Spanish with English subtitles, the HBO show follows a group of friends who turn their love of all things strange into a business that provides eerie experiences for all their clients. If you enjoyed viral SNL sketches by Torres like Ryan Gosling's "Papyrus" or Sandra Oh's "Cheques," you'll love this. 9. Jennifer's Body Fox Atomic, Dune Entertainment The movie itself may be 10 years old, but in the last few years it's experienced a rebirth as a feminist cult classic. Jennifer (Megan Fox) goes from being a high school cheerleader to being possessed and hungry for human blood — particularly that of her male classmates. 10. Zombieland Columbia Pictures Zombieland follows a ragtag team of misfits — made up of Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, and Abigail Breslin — trying to make it through the zombie apocalypse...and find the last Twinkie. And if that's not enough incentive for you to watch, this is a must-see before the sequel, Zombieland: Double Tap, comes out next month. 11. The Cabin in the Woods Lionsgate Five friends plan a getaway at a cabin in the middle of the woods — what could possibly go wrong?? The Cabin in the Woods seems to be a bit of a controversial movie for horror fans; there's some disagreement about exactly which genre it fits into: horror or comedy. But why not both? It's got humor, all your favorite scary-movie elements, and a young Chris Hemsworth. 12. The Final Girls Groundswell Productions, Studio Solutions, Ulterior Productions Max, the daughter of a deceased '80s slasher star, gets sucked into her mother's infamous horror movie along with her friends. The movie plays with and pokes fun at tons of typical slasher tropes: the sleepaway camp, masked murderers, stereotypical characters. It also boasts some pretty popular faces, like Taissa Farmiga, Nina Dobrev, and Adam Devine. 13. One Cut of the Dead ENBU Seminar, Panpokopina One Cut of the Dead is a Japanese indie horror movie about...a Japanese indie horror movie. It follows the film crew as they shoot in an abandoned WWII facility, where they fall victim to actual zombies. While the film is a recent release in the US, it's currently at 100% on Rotten Tomatoes and has received rave reviews so far, including from the Los Angeles Times, which calls it "this year's funniest horror comedy." 14. Little Evil Netflix Being a stepdad is hard. But it's even harder when you think your 5-year-old stepson is actually the Antichrist. Adam Scott and Evangeline Lilly star in this horror satire, which is inspired by movies like Rosemary’s Baby and The Omen and is available to stream on Netflix. 15. The Babysitter Netflix The Babysitter plays off slasher flicks of the '80s as it takes on the typical horror-movie-victim tropes. Cole's babysitter seems like your basic popular girl until he spies on her past his bedtime and learns she's a cold-blooded killer in a cult by night. 16. Scream Dimension Films, Woods Entertainment We all know the drill: A masked murderer targets high school teens in a nondescript, middle-class suburb. But Scream is a scary movie with a sense of humor. It's self-aware and riffs on the typical slasher tropes that came before it, turning some on their heads and reimagining others. 17. Tucker and Dale vs. Evil Reliance Big Pictures, Loubyloo Productions Two guys take a trip to their run-down cabin in the woods to kick back, but instead end up being mistaken by a group of college kids as murderers who are out to get them. It's about as absurd as it sounds, but it's a total cult classic among horror-comedy fans. 18. Happy Death Day Universal Pictures, Blumhouse Productions Happy Death Day is Groundhog Day meets slasher movie. Tree relives her birthday again and again, stuck in a loop of dying in new and more terrible ways until she solves her own murder. It's got gore, it's got a masked killer, and it's full of dark teen humor. Think we missed any great ones? Drop them in the comments below! Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF NBC Happy spooky season!
