    Elvira Mistress Of The Dark

    Elvira was famous for her witchy ways and her cleavage. This movie was busted out by the men who enjoyed seeing Elvira's cleavage. Parts that were meant to be scary were actually funny to see. Like her casserole that came to life trying to attack her.

    Scream

    This funny horror flick is what made that white mask with a black suit popular. This movie had so many scenes that had me screaming in certain parts. Besides seeing guts gutted out of a human body it also portrays some humor.
