How can you say Severance is the best comedy/horror hybrid? Are you forgetting the Evil Dead trilogy? And lest we forget Shaun Of The Dead! THAT is a comedy horror!

I've seen Severance, and it's pretty good, but cannot compare with The Evil Dead films.

Still, at least all the ones youve mentioned are better than the Scary Movie series. ;-)
