Power Rankings: Horror Comedies

The SAW Power Rankings is our weekly ranking of a certain movie-related topic. Please feel free to comment on our rankings and provide a list of your own in the comments below.

Perhaps the best mashup of genres is the horror-comedy. For fans of horror, you usually get your fill of gore and scars and for the non-horror fans, they get eased into horror with some laughs and a more lighthearted tone. Horror and comedy share a lot of similarities. They both thrive with solid setups and impeccable timing. Combining the two is a match made in heaven when done right.
