Episode # 175: Dark Comedy Duo

January 10th, 2016

Funny is funny and dark is dark, but can they hang out together?  The 80's and 90's brought us a definitive YES a few times.  Making death or deviance comical is no small thing, especially considering how few examples there are of this evil recipe being cooked so nicely in the years since these flicks.  Shaun of the Dead is dark and funny, but also has legitimate zombie action and drama in it.  Plus, we covered it in episode 2!

Beyond succeeding then, these movies are still funny and the production value holds up too.  Are they alone?  Has anything competed for the title in the last 20 years?  So I Married An Axe Murderer has this flavor, but is there a post-2000 equivalent?  Tell us all about it.  That is, after you listen to us tell you all about these 2 delights!!
