Terrible incidents and Dark Subjects, with ironic funny twists; that's Black Comedy! Being that it's one of my favorite genre's, I decided to start a thread. As sarcastic a bunch as we are here and on other boards with odd tastes in movies, this shouldn't be that hard to come up with a few. What are your favorites?

Mine INPO:

1. The Monster Hunter
2. Jawbreaker
3. Army of Darkness
4. Eating Raoul
5. Heathers
6. Drop Dead Gorgeous
7. Return of the Living Dead I & II
8. Beetlejuice
9. Addams Family and Addams Family Values
10. Young Frankenstein

I forgot the Re-Animator series. I think it more than qualifies in this genre. It's also a genuine Horror Film, and a Sci-Fi flick.

Rocky, how in god's name can you like The Fearless Vampire Killers or Return to Salems Lot? Just curious, not trying to step on your toes or nothing. :D The rest of your list is as cool as a cucumber! :cool:

I'm one of em Sin!
I really loved Jawbreaker, they need to air it on the USA channell again.
I liked Beetlejuice, too.
The Return of the Living Dead movies
Evil Dead 2, and Army of Darkness
I want to say Cabin Fever, it was kind of like black comedy at times.

You are right. Cabin Fever did play out as a black comedy at times as did The Devil's Rejects. There are a lot of films that have those moments, or so many of them, they squeak dangerously close to being such a film. Good call, writer! :)

Edward Scissorhands could be interpreted as a Black Comedy. I don't care for it too much myself, but it is one. :xbones:

Most Terry Gilliam movies (Brazil, Time Bandits, The Fisher King, 12 Monkeys) fall under the category of black comedy as do the movies by the Coen brothers (Fargo, Raising Arizona, The Ladykillers).
I've also heard good things about Delicatessen, but I have never seen it.
Don't forget about Dr. Strangelove either.
