The following list is the Official Definitive List of the 300 best comedy-horror movies of all time. Comedy-horror and horror-comedy are similar (I use them synonymously for this list), but differ on which aspect is emphasized. “Horror-comedy is a generic hybrid that deliberately provokes an emotional shift from terror, suspense, or dread to hilarity. In comedy-horror—its relative—a playful tone predominates, but it is undercut by horrific or startling events or effects.” – Oxford Bibliographies

I found 35 different ranked lists online of “best horror comedies of all time” and pulled them all into Excel and merged them all to get this definitive compilation.  See my Methodology page for the research process that was used, including links to all 35 lists that were averaged.  This list is also on IMDb.
