The horror-comedy genre is a sadly overlooked and undersupplied one. To me, most horror movies have a comedy element to them amidst all the blood and gore, and true comedy-horror movies are among my favourite type of film. So when one comes along featuring Werewolves, one of the coolest monsters around, and based on a video game I’m pretty excited. Werewolves Within is a 96-minute whodunnit romp that’s a surprisingly good time that’s fairly light on the horror but strong on the comedy and charm. And with a critic score of 86% and an audience score of 82% on Rotten Tomatoes, it’s one of the highest-rated video game adaptions ever.
If you enjoy the thrills and bloody spills of a good horror flick then at some point you’ve probably devoted a bit of time to dreaming up the ultimate crossover that pits all the coolest horror icons against each other. Well, Dead by Daylight isn’t quite that because you can’t make Michel Myers fight Freddy or have Ghostface go up against Pig from the Saw franchise. But what Dead by Daylight is, is the closest thing to a super horror crossover we have, and a damn fun multiplayer experience if you can forgive its rough edges. Maybe you can’t have the ultimate horror brawl, but you can definitely find out which killer can pile up the corpses.
As I finish writing this we’re just two days away from Halloween, and it doesn’t look like I’ll be doing much more than settling down with some movies thanks to a certain C-word of a virus floating around. So I thought I’d share my personal favourite movies to watch on Halloween. Now, I’m a big horror fan, but when it comes to Halloween I switch over to more goofy horror flicks and such, so there’s only a couple of films on this list that could be classed as true horror movies.
