List Rules Movies only

We’re ranking the funniest characters in horror history. In the grand scheme of things, there are probably way more funny horror movies than there are legitimately scary ones. It's hard to make a truly terrifying horror movie, and more often than not, that horrifying clown the director thought would make us shield our eyes turns out to be one of the dumbest characters in the film.

But who are the funniest horror characters ever? Both intentionally and *unintentionally* hilarious characters count, so funny characters from great horror films, like Shaun of the Dead, and not-so-great horror films, like Troll 2, should be included. Which horror character do you think is the funniest?

Vote up your favorite funny horror characters. And if your favorite characters aren't on the list yet, add them!
