Some of the best horror-comedy movies are currently streaming on Netflix and Hulu. Many horror movies on Netflix and Hulu are sadly overlooked; often viewers misjudge a movie by the title and neglect a real gem. Some of the horror movies on this list offer genuine scares while providing comedic relief, others offer more laughs than terror, and some are unintentionally funny — but they are all entertaining.
The stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 are at it again! Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy, and Bill Corbett offer hilarious audio commentary to a vast collection of horror movies, and many of them are streaming on Hulu. Genre fans will particularly appreciate the commentary to the Vincent Price classic House on Haunted Hill, as well as George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead.
Scary Movie 2
This uproarious gem on Netflix pokes fun at classic horror movies like The Haunting, Poltergeist 2, and The Exorcist. The banter between Tim Curry, David Cross, and Chris Elliot is worth the view alone.
Housebound is one of the best horror movies on Netflix. The ghost story genre is oversaturated, often unoriginal, and usually not scary. The brilliance of this movie is it offers a unique twist to the horror genre, witty banter, and genuine edge-of-your-seat suspense.
Tucker & Dale vs. Evil
Before Tyler Labine was seeing dead people in Deadbeat, he was teaming with Tucker to fight evil. Both critics and fans loved the film, and it is available on both Netflix and Hulu.
John Dies at the End
Starring Chase Williamson, Rob Mayes, and Paul Giamatti, John Dies at the End is one of the most unique horror films on Netflix. There are moments of the film that are genuinely funny, suspenseful, and downright brilliant!
Knights of Bada**dom
Never has Live Action Role Playing (L.A.R.P.) been so funny, and so dangerous! Steve Zahn, Peter Dinklage, and Summer Glau lead a group of nerds in a battle against evil, and you can see all of the L.A.R.P. hilarity on Netflix.
This film is funny for all of the wrong reasons. Viewers won’t be laughing because of the clever wit, as there is none, but they will be laughing because it’s simply that bad. Both audiences and critics alike panned Knock Knock, and Entertainment Weekly describes why it is one of the worst movies on Hulu.
“Like its title, the set-up of Eli Roth’s Knock Knock feels like a joke, albeit an enticingly sick one… [It] is a pretty flimsy erotic thriller, but thanks to Reeves’ oaken obliviousness it’s also got a few moments of deliciously trashy fun.”
Killer Klowns from Outer Space
The killer clown genre is nothing new, but this ’80s cult classic is one of the funniest movies to feature evil jesters. Killer Klowns from Outer Space is currently streaming on Hulu.
In 2010, a documentary titled Best Worst Movie was released about this film — and that’s the perfect way to describe it. Troll 2 is currently on Hulu, and it is unintentionally hilarious.
Ryan Reynolds and Anna Kendrick star in one of the best horror movies on Hulu, and it is filled with dark comedy. Reynolds plays a man with talking pets that are of an evil nature, and trouble brews when his crush stands him up on their date.
As ridiculous as the title is, or some might say clever, this horror flick offers great suspense, bright comedy, excellent special effects, and character depth. Cinema Crazed describes one of the best horror movies on Hulu.
“There’s something absolutely genius about director Matthew Kohnen’s horror comedy in which he concocts a formula that’s been done before, and yet feels absolutely brand new… The performances are also quite sharp, including Matthew Davis who is hilarious as the head zombie who takes to zombification quite well, even dabbling a skosh in human cranium while fighting.”
