The horror-comedy. Perhaps the most difficult sub-genre of film to perfect. Most attempts at horror-comedy don't come off well. Either they're too scary without enough comedy or (more frequently) mostly humor with not enough horror. A lot of times they just come across as trying too hard and cheesy. But every once in a while a movie gets it just right. And when that happens, audiences embrace and celebrate the brilliant and elusive successful horror-comedy.
That being said, in celebration of the upcoming release of Trent Haaga's Chop, we did our best to put together a list of 10 horror-comedies (in no particular order) that we feel are the most impressive efforts in the field. Wocka, wocka, wocka!
Tucker and Dale Vs. Evil (2011)
We've seen quite a few attempts at horror-comedy over the past few years, but recently none has been better than Tucker and Dale Vs. Evil. Starring Alan Tudyk »

We occasionally do lists here on Blogomatic3000, usually to coincide with the release of one film or another, but today is a little different. Here’s a top five inspired by the forthcoming Halloween festivities. Now, of course, I could have done a list of what I think are the greatest horror movies of all time – which would probably end up being the same-old list churned out by plenty of other websites this month. So instead I thought I’d take a look at the much derided of genre films – the sequel, and more importantly the Under-rated sequel, you know the one I mean, the part five, the part six, the totally uncalled for and unconnected to the series part three…
So here they are, in descending order, my Top 5 most under-rated horror sequels:
5) Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare
The sixth film in the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise »
Up-and-coming convention Saturday Nightmares, which runs this June 3-5, 2011, in East Rutherford, NJ, has quite an impressive lineup.
