Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls''. For a comedic kids show, it can get ''pretty damn terrifying''. Appearances with the main characters are comedy dominant, though appearances with Bill Cipher are horror dominant.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/StanAgainstEvil'' follows much the same formula as Evil Dead. Horrid monsters and violence, with a ton of comedy.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/FrankenFran'' has genuinely terrifying BodyHorror and {{Gorn}}, but largely uses those elements for satire or BlackComedy.

* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' is of the Horror Dominant type. Some lighthearted moments can be found between the MindRape, {{Eldritch Abomination}}s, CruelAndUnusualDeath(s), and TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt.



* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'': In the same vein as ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' except it has BreakTheCutie instead of MindRape. Furthermore, most of the comedic moments are in the first two episodes, while the rest are predominately horror-focused.



* ''VideoGame/SpecOpsTheLine'' starts out pretty campy and light-hearted sort of like your typical modern military shooter, of course most of that is swept under the rug halfway in the game.

* ''Film/{{Tusk}}''. It's an intentionally ridiculous story based on an intentionally ridiculous premise, but that doesn't stop it from being genuinely creepy and body horror-tastic.



* ''Film/{{Tusk}}''

* ''Franchise/FridayThe13th'' has a few entries landing here. Many of the films end up being [[{{Narm}} unintentional comedy]], but sometimes, it's meant to be funny.

* ''Film/DeadSnow''

to:

* ''Film/DeadSnow''''Film/DeadSnow'': The first film relies more on traditional horror elements, while the sequel ''Film/DeadSnowRedVsDead'' cranks up the black comedy significantly.

* Each installment of the ''[[Creator/ThisIsIt Don't Hug Me, I'm Scared]]'' series is mostly comedy with one scene of pure horror plus some mildly creepy imagery, with the exception of the last two, which are closer to the middle of the spectrum.

* ''Film/DrGiggles'' has a villain who is very cartoony and unleashes a HurricaneOfPuns whenever he makes a kill. Despite that, it's a straightforward slasher film.



* ''Franchise/{{Scream}}'' is practically the TropeCodifier for the horror-dominant variety.

to:

* ''Franchise/{{Scream}}'' is practically the TropeCodifier for the horror-dominant variety. The comedy comes from the characters lampshading the various horror tropes and being GenreSavvy. But the deaths are still gruesome and the comedy is pretty much [[ShooOutTheClowns shooed out]] in the third act.



* ''Film/PrideAndPrejudiceAndZombies'' is an AffectionateParody of the Jane Austen classic and so contains many funny re-workings of the original scenes - Darcy's first proposal and subsequent argument with Lizzie is now a kung-fu fight between them for example. But the horror elements are played pretty straight - as the zombies are still quite gruesome and becoming a ZombieInfectee is played for drama rather than comedy.



* The ''{{Series/Charmed}}'' episode 'Chick Flick' features psycho killers being released from {{Slasher Movie}}s to attack the sisters. The attempts to kill them are played entirely for comedy - as the sisters can't use their powers on the killers, forcing the {{Action Girl}}s to essentially behave like stereotypical {{Distressed Damsel}}s. Piper also has a moment of GenreBlindness.

to:

* ''Film/MurderParty'': is a film about a group of homicidal [[MadArtist MadArtists]] who despite being a bunch of insane idiots fancy themselves as criminal masterminds and pure horror material. By the second half of the movie, however the story becomes too twisted and surreal .
