11 Horror comedy Movies for Halloween


Halloween is the perfect time to sit back and scare yourself half to death with a good old Horror Movie. However, not everybody likes to be scared. Not everyone enjoys a Horror Movie. Then what do you do? Miss out? Because Horror is pretty much everywhere for the next few weeks. Lucky for you, there is the Horror Com Genre of film. Basically, it’s what it says on the packet, Comedy Horrors! These films take all the best bit’s of Horrors but instead of trying to scare the poop out of you, they swap the screams for laughs. I thought this fitted in nicely with Blogtober17 Day 10 – Jokes. It’s also not a completely obscure post as it sits nicely within my Blogoween Halloween Series too!


So today I bring you 11 of the best Horror Com movies for the more fainthearted Halloween fan:

  1. I love horror comedies…Warm Bodies, Shaun of the Dead, Sharknado and the awful sequels. I also like the mickey takes ‘Scary Movie’ films. I have a weird sense of humour so those films suit me haha x

    • Oh I totally forgot about Sharknado, I caught Chris watching it once when he was poorly and I was like ‘what on earth is this?!!! What crackpot of an idea haha!

  2. Oh death becomes her ! I loved that film !!! Shaun of the dead is pretty good too eh ?!
    I feel old seeing the years some of these movies where released !

  3. ah yes the good old genre of horror comedy. Although to be fair some horror films fit into this genre without intending to. I’ve seen nearly all of these and Death becomes her is my favourite. What a classic

  4. I’m a great big wuss when it comes to horror films! I’m still havin nightmares from watching the ring back in 2003!
    I love lots of these though, Hocus Pocus is our Halloween day film xx

    • Let’s not mention the ring. I fell asleep watching this once, the TV was at the end of the bed. I woke up at the point the girl was climbing out the TV, Scariest moment of my life in my sleepy daze haha!

  5. The last three movies on your list are the only ones I haven’t seen. I will have to check them out. Hocus Pocus is my absolute favorite on this list. I actually love horror movies, particularly ones with vampires, werewolves, witches, etc. But I also love the funny ones too. They’re great to watch with the kids. Hocus Pocus and Hotel Transylvania are ones I watch with my boys:)
