Funny horror movies will terrify you're funny bone! This is a list list of some of the best comedy horror movies ever made. Yes, that can include horror comedies so good they're scary. Either way is fine! Many of these films are streaming on Netflix and Amazon Prime. This comedy horror movie list includes hilarious and gory films in the funny horror genre, meaning that each and every one of these is a good comedy horror movie with at least a little laughter and violence in it. Makes sense, right? Great!

Are you one of those people that doesn't like Evil Dead or The Cabin in the Woods? You know, one of those people. In any case, vote up your favorites to have your voice heard.

The films on this list range from the most famous comedy horror movies of all time to some lesser known ones that you should maybe watch—unless, of course, you're a total phony and are only pretending to like the best horror comedies.
