Horror-Comedy is a genre for everyone but slightly more for those who are not into pure horror but would like something comic with some jump scares here and there. This genre has elements of black comedy in it as well, where the characters find some humor in even the worst of situations. How often a murderous ghost says, ‘We ARE dead, Duhh!!’ while on a precarious murder spree, if not in a horror-comedy?
So if you have a thing for hor-coms (okay, that’s not even a word) or just want to try out the genre, here are a few good options available on Netflix:
