I saw Friday 13th the other night for the first time, and I couldn't stop laughing- I thought it was funnier than most comedies I'd seen. But then when I spoke to other people, they said it was terrifying! So, what are the horror movies you laughed at when you weren't supposed to? Comedy horrors don't count, i.e Evil Dead II.

I laughed in the cinema at The Ring and Darkness Falls. Then, during DF someone threw popcorn at me so I tried to contain myself. But I did also laugh during Scream and Trucks, although not in the cinema. They just seemed hilarious to me.

I stand by my opinion that "The Exorcist" is one of the funniest movies ever made.  I also couldn't help but chuckle when the girl comes out of the tv in "The Ring" (I think I said something like "someone needs to call the Ghostbusters" when I was watching, since it seemed as campy as something the 'Busters would face).

The Exorcist!!! That was the most pathetic "horror" movie ever. I saw it in the movie theatre when it was relaunched, and I laughed like an entire loonybin of delirious clowns. Me and my friend mocked every single thing that happened in it. Actually, my aunt saw it back in the days, and she laughed so hard that they threw her out of the movietheatre.

Bride of Chucky was never meant to be horrifying.

Darkness falls was so horrible it was funny. Where else can you ride an elevator in a building that has its power cut?

I laughed at The Shining (Shelley Duval's expressions cracked me up)
Well I wasn´t supposed to laugh at that one since it's one of the best horror films.

Anyway, I also laugh in all the freddy movies (dunno their names) but those wouldn't fit this topic since they are made to make you laugh.
Right???

Pet Sematary is one of the funniest movies I've ever seen; and that includes movies that were meant to be funny.

The original Evil Dead. I love movies where bodies choose to fall at there own time and gallons of tomato sauce and cheap latex are used.

I don't know, ED doesn't take itself very seriously. So I think it's ok to laught at the cheapness.

The entire theatre erupted with laughter during the horse scene in "the Ring."

I remember me and my friend saying the funniest things about the movie.

On an unrelated side note, what was the point of "The Ring?" they don't really explain why she has these unusual powers and the ending makes no sense. Of course, they might have, I could have just been messing around and not listening.  no no

I think Evil Dead was supposed to be scary especially considering its release date of 1982, what with primitive special effects and techniques back then.  Plus it was generally advertised as "ferociously horrifying" as quoted by Stephen King author of Carrie....

This isn't a horror movie, but I was watching a documentary on TV a few eeks back in which it showed a clip from Emmerdale. This was during the infamous and supposedly 'shocking' plane crash episode where half the cast were killed off. Me and my brother were laughing for a full twenty minutes at the worst dead sheep ever filmed.

Jeepers Creepers was one of the single funniest films I've ever seen. How many times do you need to run over a dead body?!!

Although I'm kind of ashamed to admit this, but The Ring freaked me out more than any other film I saw. It must be the TV static. I've always been anal about that.

LOL, too true!  laff

Hey, for those of you who have seen the Japanese version of "the ring" in what ways is it similar? Is there a better plot? Is there a kick ass horse scene?

Yeah, the Exorcist is not scary at all! I couldn't see what all the fuss was about.

Final Destination was funny, especially when the teacher died, with the wine, exploding computer and knocking a knife down and stabbing herself. Then a chair falls down and drives it further in! Hooray!

Then there's all the questions surrounding the Ring.

Puzzeled Houseguest: Wow, where'd you get that neat glass TV sculpture?
Me: Oh, I just turned my TV off when that crazy Japanese girl was halfway out. How'd ya' like that, bitch! Hahahahahahaha!

That wouldn't work. You can't turn off the TV. It stays on or comes on by itself.

I just can't believe there was a horror movie where the villain was a video

It's the 21st century. You'd figure she could convert it to DVD, with all kinds of "killer" extras.(sorry, bad joke)

I laughed really hard while watching Children of the Corn 3 when the mother runs away from the corn stalks (Oooooh scary) and gets past all these obstacles, then she just slips on loose pipe and gets a gas nozzle rammed through the back of her head. It just looked hilarious!

You got that right. The whole theater was mocking the movie throughout. When it first began, I thought it was annoying, but when I realized what was going on on the screen, I couldn't stop laughing. I fell on the floor when the coach got taken away and the student were like:

Students: "Coach?"

And the the bus driver got taken away and they were like:

Student#1: "What the F*ck was that?"

Student#2: "I don't know."

What makes it worse, besides paying money to see this crap, was getting handed a slip that asks what I thought of the movie.

I went to see a theater rerelease of The Exorcist.  I found it to be pretty funny, but I find most horror films to be that way.  Especially funny was the priest who looked like Dave Burba, a relief pitcher for the Cleveland Indians at the time.  I just couldn't get that association out of my head.

I thought Texas Chainsaw Massacre was hilarious, or though parts did freak me out. I love it when the truck driver gets out of the truck just to see Leatherface running after a girl covered in blood., then he starts running. Now that is funny. Also when Jim Siedow says:" You damn fool! You broke the door!"

I'm not a horror fan at all. But a long time ago I was staying over at my friends house and we watched Final Destination on DVD. Now that got me laughing.

Bats.  There is one scene where a character asks the evil scientist why he made evil bats, and he replies...hmm.  I don't 100% remember.  It was either "Because I could" or "I'm a scientist.  It's what I do!"  One of those two, anyway it was funny 'cause he says it with this perfectly straight face, like he's offended the question was even asked.
