List Rules Only funny films in any horror genre

There’s nothing better than a ridiculous comedy horror movie. Whether it’s for a date night or just a timekiller, the funniest horror films offer viewers high energy laughs and scares - seemingly opposite ends of the emotive spectrum. What are the funniest horror films of all time? Some of the greatest horror movies ever made fall squarely into the horror comedy genre. Others on this list blend funny lines so seamlessly that they barely seem like "comedies" at all, but just well-made movies with excellent screenplays, acting, direction, and scares. Some of the most ridiculous and unbelievable films are comedy horrors, but so are some of the best and most beloved movies ever. 
 
This list discusses the funniest horror movies and some classic horror movies that include: Shaun of the Dead, Cabin in the Woods, Zombieland, Beetlejuice, and Ghostbusters. Vote for the hilarious horror films that made you laugh hardest, and please add any that we missed.
