    Horror Horror Humor?

    Discussion in 'By the Genre' started by sashas, May 23, 2007.

    Is there any market out there for horror humor?

    As in you take a stock horror character, and put him into funny situations.

    I'm yet to come across any websites or stories like that...

    and all the mummy and zombie flicks from way back when to now... haven't you seen any of the POTCs?...

    what you seem to think is a new idea has been done since writing began and is being done as we speak...

    The entire Nightmare On Elm Street series is centered upon horror humor.
