...That Taste Great Together!
On the surface, horror and humor seem as far apart as two genres can be. Horror is all about creating fear and suspense, while humor is about inciting laughter. But, when you think about it, what could be more natural than building up tension with fear and suspense, then releasing the tension with laughter? Isn’t laughter one of the ways we cope with the scary things in our lives?
I'm obviously not alone in thinking this—the library has lots of titles that mix humor with horror. These run the gamut from pure humor with only the trappings of horror to the genuinely horrific.
