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:

    My life has crept so long on a broken wing
    Through cells of madness, haunts of horror and fear,
    That I come to be grateful at last for a little thing.
    Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)

    The actors today really need the whip hand. They’re so lazy. They haven’t got the sense of pride in their profession that the less socially elevated musical comedy and music hall people or acrobats have. The theater has never been any good since the actors became gentlemen.
    —W.H. (Wystan Hugh)
