|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. ;-)
