The most popular comedic characters all have one thing in common - they don’t care about anyone but themselves. They put their needs and goals in front of everyone else; too bad if you’re in their way.

Oddly enough, that's the exact same way a killer in a horror film acts. And from the perspectives of the supporting characters, many so-called comedies are actually pretty grim. 

Some such films are obviously horrific, but others only reveal their true, macabre nature after you take a closer look. The next time you’re watching a screwball comedy, remember the supporting characters are dying inside, terrified of what the main character’s going to do. Comedy is all about perspective.
