5 Comedy Horror Films to Enjoy with Your Friends
Young Frankenstein (1974)
Director Mel Brooks capitalizes on vaudeville slapstick humor to create a parody of 1930s horror classics. The movie boasts of a stellar cast, including Gene Wilder, Peter Boyle, and Marty Feldman. This black and white movie is lighthearted and fun for any crowd.
Four funny scientists try their hand at business and create a ghost extermination service for New York City. It’s rugged, witty, and packed with a lot of fun action, making it one of the best films of all time. “Ghostbusters” also has one of the most iconic movie theme songs in cinematic history.
Ruben Fleischer takes the zombie trend and infuses a lot of witty humor and hilarious action. In this film, a college kid travels cross-country to find a safe haven from zombies. He meets kooky individuals on the way, and fights some zombies. They don’t use their real names, instead, they use the names of the places they come from: Columbus, Little Rock, Tallahassee, and Wichita. A sequel is scheduled for release in 2019.
Shaun of the Dead (2004)
“Shaun of the Dead” is classic! Simon Pegg stars as a bumbling employee who tries to fight off the growing number of zombies in London. The film’s wry humor completes this superb British comedy horror experience.
The movie “Gremlins” is the antithesis of Young Frankenstein. It’s completely original, dark, and shocking. But it’s really hilarious and exciting to watch, too! “Gremlins” tells the story of a cute and cuddly critter that goes wild and multiplies after his owner has a little too much fun with him. The movie was so successful that it spawned two sequels!
