Ten Best Horror Comedies to Haunt You Over the Holidays
Evil Dead 2 (1987)
You could include the entire Evil Dead franchise here, I suppose, but The Evil Dead is too far on the horror side of the spectrum, and Army of Darkness leans way too far on the comedy side. But much like Baby Bear's porridge, Evil Dead 2 is just right. Bruce Campbell nailed the physical comedy. He was doing Jim Carrey before Jim Carrey was famous, and he did it with one hand and a cabin full of supernatural creatures trying their damnedest to kill him. No easy task there.
The strengths of this film are two-fold: the performance of Campbell and the awesome F/X team, which contained such masters of the craft as Greg Nicotero, Howard Berger, Robert Kurtzman and Shannon Shea. Evil Dead 2 may be the funniest, scariest film ever made. A perhaps unapproachable model of how the genre should be done.
The horror-comedy Chop, is heading to DVD, Video on Demand, and Digital Download on December 27th.
