Funny horror movies! This is a list list of some of the best comedy horror movies ever made, or horror comedies. Either way is fine! many of these films are streaming on Netflix and Amazon Prime. This comedy horror movie list can be sorted by cast, year, director and more.

These are the best comedy horror movies of all time, as voted on by fans of the films.  

These are the top films in the comedy horror genre, meaning that each and every one of these is a movie with at least a single element of the comedy horror genre in it. Makes sense, right? Great!
