Top Five Halloween Comedy Horror Movies

Number 5



I do like a zombie apocalypse film and this is my favourite – it is my equivalent to National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation (my ultimate favourite Christmas movie – blog to follow in December) but for Halloween. It follows the adventures of a geeky college kid who meets three strangers along the way to find a sanctury free zombie zone.

bill-murrayBill Murray shows up in this film, as himself, disguised as a zombie. 

Number 4


Carry On Screaming

The 12th film in the Carry On franchise, this time concentrating on horror; it was a parody of the Hammer horror films that were popular at the time. It follows the story of two police officers investigating a missing woman which leads them to a mansion that has strange goings on at and they uncover a plot to turn people into wax mannequins.

 Number 3



A 1988 comedy horror which stars Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis and Michael Keaton. The plot is a recently deceased couple haunt their former home and they summon a devious poltergeist called Betelgeuse (Beetlejuice) to scare the new inhabitents permanently.

Number 2


Young Frankenstein

A comedic adaptation of Mary Shelley’s novel, this film pays homage to the classic horror genre.  It follows the story of Dr Frederick Frankenstein a physican who inherits his family’s estate in Transylvania after the death of his great- grandfather, Baron Beaufort von Frankenstein. He finds a secret entrance to a laboratory and proceeds to follow in his great-grandfather’s footsteps to re-animate a human corpse….  A great film with the added bonus of Peter Boyle as The Monster, for those of you who don’t know, he’s Frank in Everybody Loves Raymond!

Number 1

Shaun of the Dead

Another zombie apocalypse movie, but set in England. Our heroes at first do not even notice the apocalypse but when they do decide that the best plan is to hide out in their local pub.

This film stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, but there is a wealth of English comedians, comic actors and sitcom stars including Tamsin Greig, Martin Freeman, Reecee Shearsmith and some have cameos as zombies including Rob Drydon, Russell Howard and Joe Cornish.

So there you go, my top five of horror comedies, I won’t be posting top five of horror films as I don’t watch them, I don’t like horror films but love zombie films, no, I don’t understand it eiher….  Happy Halloween!
