Sometimes the best scary movies elicit shrieks and laughter. Here are some of the grossest, sharpest horror comedies. WARNING: Gore ahead.
Diablo Cody's highly underrated follow-up to Juno confounded critics who somehow didn't appreciate the perfect balance of snark and blood. It's a hilarious, terrifying look at high school. After all, Hell is a teenage girl.

"Evil Dead II"
In some ways, Evil Dead II is a rehash of the original Evil Dead — but more morbidly silly. This is the film that really helped Bruce Campbell flex his horror comedy chops. And it set the stage for the even more absurd Army of Darkness.
Also known as Braindead, Dead Alive made zombies funny long before Warm Bodies. Peter Jackson's gorefest is very much his sensibility (read: distinctly New Zealand). You'll laugh if you can stomach it.
The Fright Night remake was a lot of fun, but the original is a classic. Well, a classic by '80s standards. A vampire named Jerry, "Evil" Ed (who went on to do gay porn), and Roddy McDowall — it doesn't get any better.
