One of the funniest horror movies of all time
26 March 2003 | by See all my reviews

Highway to hell is by far one of the funniest horror movies of all time. There are tons of hilarious lines and scenes throughout the entire film. As a person who enjoys over-the-top horror movies, this is my favorite. This one beats all of the other comedy/horror movies I have seen to date: Jack Frost, Head of the Family, Python, Raptor, Night of the Demons, Hell's Highway (not to be confused with this one, Highway to Hell), Dead Alive, Demons, Terror Toons. While these movies do have their moments, Highway to Hell is consistent and overall a better movie. I highly recommend this movie to any fan of the comedy/horror genre.
