What makes a movie scary? This is a question I’m asked a lot, and while it varies from person to person, there are some basic things that you need to look for when seeking out the scariest movies out there. It’s important to remember that movies are only frighteners, they aren’t horror movies. Granted, there is a reason people like them so much, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t scary. In fact, consider how many horror films have been made, and consider just how scary all those films are. To some extent, yes, however, many of those scary movies are funny, at least in part.
Look, it’s a completely different thing when something is scary than it is when something is funny. Consider, for example, the old Darth Vader scary movie series. Yes, those films did make use of well known scary movie tricks, and that’s why they were scary. The problem is, they were also incredibly lazy and stereotypical, and the effect they had was not at all unique or original. The original Star Wars movies were incredibly scary, and while they still are among the best scary movies ever made, they had so many amazing aspects to them that they are often considered iconic. Even modern day Darth Vader films are influenced by the original trilogy, and they are a fantastic example of how a scary film can be made incredibly funny through clever parodies and clever comedy.
One such famous example of a scary movie with a great sense of humor is the Coppertone serial killer movie “The Shining”. No matter how strange or unconventional its story sounds, you can be sure that at some point in the film it will be followed by someone being scared. The Coppertone killer is weird and completely beyond human imagination, but this type of fright is perfectly normal. Most serial killers are so frightening because they don’t have any definite pattern or set of characteristics. It is more of an unpredictable madness running wild, and this is what makes them very scary indeed.
A more common form of scary movie parodies can be found in Disney movies. The Disney Company has a long history with parodies, and many of the funniest ones are parodies of other Disney characters. We all know that there are some pretty legendary Disney characters, and “Frosty the Snowman” and ” roommates” are two of the best examples of this. In addition to this, other popular parodies include: Cinderella, Bob the Builder, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and many others. These parodies are extremely fun, and they are often parodies of the original source material, but the difference is that it has been edited to make it funnier. While this is a common practice for movies, these are even more enjoyable because they are usually about things that are more unusual.
Other genres of scary movie parodies include comedy, horror movies, and the super-scary genre. In the super-scary genre, there are horror movies that are parodied and used as a source of comedy – think “The Shining” or “The Ring”. But in the case of comedies, many times they are just taken a little too far, and it can be kind of jarring to watch.
Of course, the internet is full of funny movies, and sometimes you just need to laugh. Some of the most popular spoofs on YouTube can be found in the comments section below the video, and sometimes they get viral online thanks to the clever way the creators put them on the video. Sometimes you’ll find that a particular film has become a popular comedy classic, and its characters are referenced in many parodies, such as “A Christmas Story”. With so many amazing horror films to choose from, there’s no reason not to enjoy a few funny videos as a part of your Halloween celebration this year. As long as you’re watching the right one!
