to:

* ''Film/GetOut'' has a fair share of tongue-in-cheek humour and a comic relief character [[spoiler: who actually ends up saving the day]] but the humour is fairly subtle overall. [[Creator/JordanPeele Given the director]], it's surprising the comedy elements aren't played up more.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/OverTheGardenWall'' has a tone leaning more towards horror, but the actual story tends to lend itself more to comedy, as more often than not the ending [[DarkIsNotEvil reveals that there was never an actual threat despite the creepy overtones]].


Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents'' is shockingly dark for a children's series, but still focuses mainly on BlackComedy rather than horror.

* ''[[WesternAnimation/GarfieldSpecials Garfield's Halloween Adventure]]'' plays its horror elements surprisingly straight, but it's still ultimately ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'', which means that it has plenty of snark and slapstick to go around.



* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' has most of the elements you'd expect from a kids' comedy cartoon, but with some creepy monsters thrown in.

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.
