The Evil Dead movies are comedies, aren't they? They always made me laugh. :lol:

A film can be both a horror and a comedy. :D
The Army of Darkness (part 3) is definitley all comedy but the first two are a balance.
Love the ending to part 2 ( both endings cos i know dave will ask me on this)
Remember Shop Smart
Shop S Mart

*snore* Could not have been less scared by that film.

I'll watch some zombie films I think, and something Japanese - those people know how to write a ghost story (watching the original Grudge I almost wet my pants).

An American Werewolf in London was one of my favourites in that genre. :D

I definitely prefer the S Mart ending. :D I've got the Freddy Vs Jason Vs Ash comic series where he is now an area sales rep for S Mart. :D

By the way, it's Part 3... :wink:

I prefer Sleepy Hollow and not just cos it's got Johnny Depp in it, but it is creepy if you ignore the tongue in cheek humour and watch it in the dark.

Then again I don't watch Jurrasic Park, and following films, in the dark either! :lol:

I'll be busy that night! I have to put a few spells out, dress appropriately in Midnight and generally do witchy things. Then go to a dinner for Witches (warlocks are a Vicorian invention. Both sexes are Witches). Should be fun! (dubious).

At least I won't have to partake of barely concealed threats from 5-7 years olds regarding sweeties...I'll have eaten them all anyway! :evil:

It's Alive.

This is on tonight at 12.50 on BBC2.

Just read the Wiki, and it sounds absolutely hysterical! :lol:
