The Halloween celebration continues with six more of my top 31 favorite horror comedies.
25. Arachnophobia (1990)
Not the darkest or the scariest movie, but what can I say… I hate spiders and I love John Goodman. Arachnophobia is just creepy enough to give anyone with a strong aversion to spiders a serious case of the willies.
24. Lake Placid (1999)
I don’t understand why this movie gets such a bad rap. I love it. You take a killer croc, a great cast, just add water, and presto… you’ve got yourself a campy creature feature starring Bill Pullman, Bridget Fonda, Oliver Platt, Brendan Gleeson, and Betty White.
23. Feast (2005)
Another pleasant surprise, Feast is a gloriously irreverent monster movie, sporting buckets of blood, a snarky sense of humor and a penchant for gross-out gags. Bonus: Henry Rollins as a khaki-clad life coach, Judah Friedlander as a quirky beer delivery guy, and Jason Mewes as himself.
22. Teeth (2007)
As disturbing as it is hilarious, Teeth tells the tale of Dawn O’Keefe… and her shocking discovery, her vagina’s got teeth. It’s a wickedly smart cautionary tale. Guys, don’t be dicks.
21. Doghouse (2009)
Speaking of dicks, the group of mildly misogynistic men in Doghouse probably wouldn’t fare very well with Ms. Dawn O’Keefe’s vagina dentata, they sure don’t do so well with the “blood-thirsty zombie sluts from Hell” they find on their weekend getaway. I’m sorry ladies, but this movie is hilarious.
20. Severance (2006)
As if a company retreat isn’t bad enough, throw in a psycho killer and things go from bad to worse. This story of the company retreat from hell is Office Space meets Friday the 13th with equal parts scares and laughs.
Check back tomorrow for six more funny fright fests, and stay tuned all week to see all 31 of my favorite horror comedies.
