I worked for Charlie Band's Full Moon label, writing all sorts of things, and for a while he seemed to gravitate toward horror comedy and I wrote this sort of unofficial trilogy of horror comedy movies a number of years ago.

Head of the Family -- about this family of mutants, ruled by a character with a tiny body a giant head, also featuring Jackie Lovell at her most beautiful in a naked burned-at-the-stake scene.

Hideous! -- Competing collectors of bizarre biological oddities go to war -- things get even stranger when the collection of oddities come to life. Also featuring a topless Jackie Lovell in an ape mask (it doesn't really make sense but I put it in anyway).

The Creeps -- A Mad Scientist has figured out a way to bring the classic monsters to life using an "archetype inducer" -- but needs the first editions of classic works of literature to do it -- thus entangling a feisty librarian in the proceedings. The process screws up resulting in Dracula, Frankenstein, the Mummy, and the Wolfman being brought to life -- but all of them come to life at three feet tall.

For whatever reason, those seem to have hit some sort of note of comic weirdness. Anyway, people are still watching them.

I've done other more "straight" horror, both for Charlie Band and elsewhere.

Horror/comedy to me is the toughest genre to pull off. I have not seen any of those that you've written -- is there one you would rec I watch?

I do enjoy straight horror moreso.

You and Bono may enjoy a comedy called what we do in the shadows.

Swear to god. That's the last movie that truly freaked me the FUKK out.

My buddy had a party a few months ago, the creator of Blair Witch was there, rapped with him. I told him "Dude... after watching your flick I took the VHS tape and fukkin hucked it out the window, no lie... dude I thought that sh!t was real, bruh FUKK that movie!!!"

He's like "That's a RAD review. Love it!"

In summary, I would love to see a strange beast squatting in a tree in the night watching me from outside my window. Am I weird?
I can think of real horror things and they have nothing to do with slashers etc. They are all based on real life. Movies like THE FIRM and PRISONERS are more scary to me than horror movies -- because they could happen...

Anyway -- that is interesting Vango and yes you are a weirdo! And by that I mean a writer.

Pretty sure that's the best compliment a writer can EVER receive.

Just watched new CHILD'S PLAY reboot which I enjoyed -- acting was very good. I love the first movie and series -- but what it did better than almost any reboot I can think of (recently) is that I did not even think of the old movie during it. Obviously they have similar things, but it was so different (in a good way) that I enjoyed it for it's own thing. They could have made it w/o the title honestly -- just do an homage and rename some things.

It's mostly a comedy in my eyes, FYI!
