Ghost Town (2008)

I've seen a few dark comedies over the past several weeks. By Dark comedy, I mean a "funny" horror movie. I for one have NEVER liked funny horror movies. It just didn't seem right to me that you would combine gore/horror and comedy. However, I must say I believe I'm rethinking my former negative ideas about this genre. The movies Otis, and most recently, The Cottage were laugh out loud funny and very gory... I liked them both! I saw this trailer for Ghost Town and even though it is PG 13 (won't be any gore here), it looks so funny. I have it saved in my Netflix account. The movie comes to theaters in September. I have a trailer at the end of this post. This really looks good. Greg Kinnear (The Gift, Godsend, Bad News Bears 2005, The Matador, and Unknown... all these movies are 4 and 5 stars in my book!!!) is in this movie and from the trailer does a good job. Needless to say, I'm looking forward to this movie coming out on DVD sometime next year. Also, I need to say that there is a difference between a dark comedy and campy "B" movie horror. A "B" movie is "funny" because the acting, script, or direction suck. It was not intended to be funny, but because it is so bad it is funny. I HATE... ab hor, detest, loathe, and despise campy "B" horror. I consider it an insult to intelligent thinking horror fans to put that crap on film. OK, enough griping from me. I'm starting to warm to a well acted dark comedy... so here's a trailer to what I believe is a good one! Check it out...
