Comedy Horror

Comedy Horror

Horror comedy, is a literary and film genre that combines elements of comedy and horror fiction. The genre almost always inevitably crosses over with the black comedy genre; and in some respects could be considered a subset of it.

The short story "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" by Washington Irving is cited as "the first great comedy-horror story". The story made readers "laugh one moment and scream the next", and its premise was based on mischief typically found during the holiday Halloween.

Famous quotes containing the words horror and/or comedy:

    That’s why I’ve come to you, to seek release from a curse of misery and horror against which I’m powerless to fight alone.
    —Edward T. Lowe. Erle C. Kenton. Count Dracula (John Carradine)

    The difference between tragedy and comedy is the difference between experience and intuition. In the experience we strive against every condition of our animal life: against death, against the frustration of ambition, against the instability of human love. In the intuition we trust the arduous eccentricities we’re born to, and see the oddness of a creature who has never got acclimatized to being created.
    Christopher Fry (b. 1907)
