If you are looking for a cult horror-comedy, Tucker and Dale vs. Evil will fit the bill. This film is directed by Eli Craig, who is also responsible for Little Evil (see below) as well as Space Cowboys and The Rage: Carrie 2.
Tucker and Dale are two well-meaning hillbillies that a group of witless college students mistakes for killers. Tyler Labine plays Dale, and Alan Tudyk plays Tucker, and they are just two backwoods boys trying to enjoy a vacation at their cabin in the woods.
Along come a group of college students who take one look at the duo and assume the worst. It is a bloody and hilarious film.

Also starring Bridget Everett, Kyle Bornheimer, Chris D’Elia, Donald Faison, Carla Gallo, Tyler Labine, Brad Williams, Clancy Brown, and Sally Field, this film received 92% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
It’s another good one to add to your watchlist.
3. A Haunted House
This film is a found-footage parody comedy horror. A Haunted House actually pokes fun at found-footage horror films.

The film follows a young couple Malcolm (Wayans) and Kisha (Atkins), who move into a new home only to find that is haunted and that a demon possesses Kisha. Trying to salvage his relationship Malcolm enlists the help of paranormal specialists who try to exorcise the demon from his beloved Kisha.
2. He Never Died
Next up is a dark horror-comedy film, He Never Died. This film is a meld of horror, comedy, supernatural, and crime.
Henry Rollins plays Jack, an immortal cannibal who has withdrawn from society to protect himself and others. He is forced out into society when his blood dealer is threatened by a crime family, and he discovers he has a daughter that needs found.
This is definitely one that might not appeal to everyone. Proceed with caution.
