If you’re not a huge fan of classic horror movies, but you still want to celebrate Halloween in a movie marathon kind of way, horror comedies are you perfect pick. Often with ridiculous plots and unexpectedly funny story development, horror comedies have been around even from the 1920s (‘Haunted Spooks‘ for example), and recently became hugely popular once ‘Shaun of the Dead’ and all the ‘Scary Movies’ were released.
Below you have a list of ten awesome horror comedies that revolve around teenagers and that we really think you’ll enjoy. All you need is a bunch of friends, a huge bowl of popcorn, some carved pumpkins and you can let the Halloween celebrations begin.
