A List Of Comedy-Horror Movies To Sweeten Up Your Halloween

Lately, I haven't been able to take any scary movies seriously.

It's the 21st century – and I still can't take horror movies seriously. We have jumped from zombies with overly-exaggerated hilarious makeup and gushing blood to zombies with metal helmets covered in spikes to zombie dogs that can split their mouth open into four different parts. What the fracking frick?

Now, whenever I go to watch a movie, I wonder which parts are going to make me laugh – instead of wondering how scary the movie will be. Who knows, maybe my sense of humor is too sardonic or movies nowadays go the extra mile that some people can't take them seriously.

I want to confess something. The Conjuring is not scary; has never been. And nobody can change my mind.

Since most of my life I haven't been able to take horror movies seriously – or haven't been scared by them – I thought that a good list oh horror comedy would benefit most of us. A good laugh will come in handy, trust me.

1. Scary Movie

If you want to forget who you are and have a good laugh, any Scary Movie will do the job. (Except Scary Movie 5, but we don't know her.)

If you've never heard of these movies, picture them as a humorist anthology of various horror movies that follow the life of Cindy Campbell and her friends. We've gotten parodies of infamous scenes from movies such as Scream, The Blair Witch Project, The Exorcist, The Ring, Saw, The Grudge – you name it.

I recommend a marathon of all these movies if you have to stay in during Halloween to give candy to the kids. Have some friends over at least.

2. A Haunted House

Giphy

Another series of parody that overtakes a new path for Paranormal Activity and The Conjuring, among some other recognizable scary movies that have managed to make us yawn throughout time. But trust me, this one gets out some many good laughs out of you.

Either you watch A Haunted Hour or A Hunted House 2, I promise that you'll end up peeing yourself. (Although there's more of a structured storyline to this one, so start with the first.)

3. Stitches

Giphy

Stitches, an Australian movie about a clown that comes back from the dead to take revenge on the kids who killed him, must be on your To-Watch List.

What makes this movie funny are the ingenious ways in which our clown, Stitches, kills his victims/killers. (I'm fazed here...) Despite the blood and guts and eyes flying out through the entire movie, Stitches should be considered a classic among the clown-horror genre. It's got everything you want: gore, a clever clown, death, and humor.

4. Zombieland

Giphy

For a huge fan of horror and zombies, Zombieland is the movie for you. It follows the story of Columbus, as he meets a cowboy with a weird obsession with Twinkies named Tallahassee, and a pair of sisters who wished to make it to Pacific Playland in California named Wichita and Little Rock. These group of odd people must travel through the country infested by zombies while trying to have a good time at the same time.

And there's also a plus, Bill Murray makes an apparition in this movie, and I think it is iconic.

5. Final Girls

Giphy

Final Girls is about these group of teenagers who get stuck into a shitty remake of Friday the 13th. While trying to find out a way to get out of the movie, they realize they have to act according to the storyline of the movie. While trying not to meddle with the actual characters, they end getting them killed, and now they have to deal with the killer. Slowly they start dying too, and only the final girl can save them all.

Spooky, I know. However, these are an array of some movies I can never get tired of, but if horror isn't exactly what you want, I'm sure they will hit the spot.

One of the top 100 games of the century makes a comeback in an epic way.

17 years ago, the legion invaded the realm of Azeroth, forcing the different races of Humans, Orcs, Night elves, and Undead to make the most unlikely of alliances. There were those who fought for the light while the others wished to banish it. Night and day, the furnaces of Lordaeron burnt bright as the loyal dwarves of Khaz Modan hammer away the swords and shields that would aid the fight ahead.

17 years ago, the young orc warchief Thrall foresaw the fate of his people as meteors of green flames crash upon his lands. He saw the upcoming demise of his clanand ordered a mass evacuation towards a new continent where they shall be safe for generations to come. 17 years ago, the night elves felt a corruption within the Tree of Life, causing them to split into opposing factions: one fought in the name of the Goddess, while the other fought in the name of personal hatred. 17 years ago, a legion of undead came upon the shores of Lordaeron, plaguing the land and defiling the life force of the realm. That was the story of Warcraft, one that spanned continents and races only to join them together for a crucial battle of their history.

Warcraft was a monument to an entire gaming generation, ranked 2nd best game of all time by German games magazine "GameStar." Its fate, however, was ultimately sealed as computing technology became better and overshadowed the old giant. Plus, with the rise of gaming consoles and handheld gaming devices, PC gaming lost its appeal slowly, and games like Starcraft or Warcraft eventually faded into oblivion.

But over on the horizon, Blizzard Entertainment came to the rescue. Following the success of their previous release of Starcraft: Remastered, they decided to come forth with their next great project: remastering Warcraft 3.

Using a new and revamped engine built over the foundations of the old one, they have rebuilt the world we once loved. Adding to that are new, high definition voices and sound effects that they recorded just for this old game. For the blurry characters of old, the team decided to upscale and remodel all present units to give them the 2019 high-def treatment they deserved. For the old user interface (UI), the development team settled on one that resembled the "Starcraft: Remastered" interface, offering more room for players to look at the gorgeous 4K character models. Also, to fit the new continuity from World of Warcraft, Blizzard opted to alter the story by a small margin, showing promising changes to the revived game.

However, not everyone was hyped when the game was announced. Many gamers expressed disappointment at Blizzard's move of remastering old games instead of developing new ones. Many, feeling uncomfortable at the company's decision, took to the internet and into forums. Some fans expressed concerns over Blizzard's decision to retcon a game they hold dear Some are unhappy with the graphics not being consistent with characters: unit models look too detailed while buildings look cartoonish.

Despite all this, the general population loved the announcement at Blizzcon. As the game slowly reaches its release date of December 31, 2019, the hype can only go up from here. For those of us who can't hold their excitement, here's a video of the crowd's insane reaction to the announcement:
