Sure, terrifying, gruesome horror movies are great and all (The Conjuring is always a good scare), but sometimes, you just need some good, light-hearted fun to get in the seasonal spirit. It doesn’t always have to be gory, you know? Enter the real Halloween horror movies (and, we’re not talking about those Halloween movies). We mean the mostly non-scary, funny kind hat won’t fuel your nightmares for weeks to come. Trust us, sleeping with the lights on for months on end is a not a fun time.

Thus, if you’re looking for something a little less spine-tingling, you’ve come to the right place. We think a good, funny horror Halloween movie is just about putting you in the right mood, something like the cult classic Trick ‘r Treat, that’s equal-parts fun, horror, and an overall damn good time. Or Happy Death Day, which turned an old premise into a fun and frightening one all over again. Who doesn’t look a good horror murder mystery?

And, don’t forget about Scream—the 1996 film that arguably made the Halloween horror genre more than just jump scares and frightening ghouls.

We’ll preface this list by mentioning that some of these flicks do contain the occasional jump scare, so proceed with caution. Here’s a list of the best funny Halloween horror movies ever:

Trick ‘r Treat

Trick ‘r Treat falls somewhere between a black comedy and true horror movie, telling interwoven stories of kids and adults alike on Halloween night (and often up to no good). Think American Horror Story, but funnier. It’s a cult classic for a reason (hence why a sequel is in the works), and you’ll maybe never look at lollipops the same way again.

Murder Party

A group of art students arrange a Halloween party in a mysterious warehouse in Brooklyn…which then spirals into a murder-plot that goes seriously awry. Hilarious and dark, the indie flick is everything you could ask for in a Halloween horror film (with a couple gags thrown in).

It

In the grand scheme of things, It, though a horror movie, is a damn funny one. Telling the tale of Pennywise the clown who lives in the sewage system of a small town, the movie has its charismatic group of misfits, the so-called Losers’ Club, to thank for providing tons of laughs in an otherwise terrifying movie. It has its creepy moments, sure, but what’s funnier than watching a psychopathic clown terrorize a group of children? Based on the iconic Stephen King novel.

Shaun of the Dead

For a movie telling the story of a zombie plague ravaging London, Shaun of the Dead is decidedly not scary. Who’s scared of zombie flicks anyway? Simon Pegg and Nick Frost shine in this flick as a duo of bumbling guys, trying their best to survive an apocalypse and failing much of the time (as you’d expect, TBH). It’s the kind of Halloween fun you need right now.

Happy Death Day

Few horror movies of the last decade had as much fun as the Jason Blum-produced Happy Death Day, where Groundhog’s Day meets The House on Sorority Row. Tree, a college student, is murdered by a baby-masked slasher on her birthday. And, get this: she’s forced to live out the day again and again until she can find her killer—which proves an especially painful, but hilarious, process. Watching her die over and over again is quite…funny. Maybe it’s thee refreshingly original plot or Jessica Rothe’s role as a scream queen in the making, but we can’t stop laughing.

Ready or Not

Ready or Not was easily one of the best horror movies of 2019. Sure, it didn’t break any ground, but it’s damn good horror fun. In the flick, we witness a young woman marrying into an extraordinarily wealthy family, who have plans to kill her…on her wedding night. Talk about family drama. You’d think witnessing a bride fight for her life in a game of hide-and-seek with her in-laws would have tons of jump scares and frightening moments, but it’s rather comical. A great companion piece to Knives Out.

Cabin in the Woods

Because it was directed by Joss Whedon, you can already guess that Cabin in the Woods is nothing if not full of surprises. The movie begins innocently enough: A group of college students descend upon…a cabin in the woods for a little rendezvous. Prime murder moments. But, things are a lot different in the horror film: let’s just say that weird shit happens. And, this is only the beginning of this movie. We’ll save you from any spoilers as to the events that unfold shortly thereafter.

Krampus

It’s never too late to get in the true holiday spirit, and this flick will convince. We all know jolly ‘ole Santa—the fictional character almost every kid looks up to. But take everything you know about Santa and flip it on its head. That’s what Krampus does, making Santa the ultimate Christmas villain.

Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil

A pair of hillbillies inadvertently become the ultimate horror villains to a group of college students staying at a cabin in the woods. (Seem familiar?) Despite their good intentions, the duo can’t help but find themselves doing and saying the wrong thing.

Bad Hair

Dear White People’s Elle Lorraine stars in this horror satire about an aspiring Black VJ who gets caught up (quite literally) in her hair, capable of killing people and drinking their blood. Who knew your hair could become your worst enemy? The flick dives into subjects regarding Black Americans’ cultural experiences, and also has an all-star cast that includes Lena Waithe, Usher, and Kelly Rowland to boot.

Dead Snow

In case you’re looking for the truly absurd, look no further than Nazi zombies—yeah, you ready that right. In Dead Snow, several students vacation in an isolated cabin (we’re sensing a theme here…) and soon find out they aren’t alone. Nazi zombies have come back to life and are on the hunt for their next victims. (Dun dun dun.)

Vampires Vs. The Bronx

A group of young teens must defend the Bronx from monsters gentrifying their New York neighborhood. No, for real, actual monsters. (As in, blood-thirsty vampires.) A classic in the making.

Scream

Goes without saying, no? A movie that single-handedly gave rise to three sequels (with a fourth coming next year), the careers of several notable actors, and Halloween costumes for decades to come.

Zombieland

A cult classic, Zombieland follows a nerdy student, played by Jesse Eisenberg, who surprisingly (somewhat) survives a zombie apocalypse. With Woody Harrelson and Emma Stone co-starring, this film is equally gory and hilarious.

Meet the Blacks

A parody of The Purge, this film follows a family who moves into the surburbs where they run into their neighbors’ (among others) attempts to kill them. With comedian Mike Epps starring, you know there’s surely some laughs.

Scary Movie

We can’t talk about funny horror movies without including the funny horror film: Scary Movie. A parody of mutiple ’90s horror films—murder-y, mystery, slasher-y, to name a few—this film (aside from Scream) became one of the staples of this genre. No wonder it spun four sequels.
