    Black Comedy

    Post by TravM on Thu Jul 29, 2010 10:32 am

    A black comedy film is a film that usually contains a sense of grim presence in a comedy film. Somewhat like macabre. I thoroughly enjoy them, if they are done and stylized in a visually appealing way. My favorite example of a black comedy film is The Addams Family. I love how the characters react with each other with their deadpan sense (especially Wednesday). The seem to have no idea that their "daily usuals" are considered odd to the rest of society, or they don't acknowledge it at least. I also liked the sequel, Addams Family Values. Another one of my favorites is Heathers. It's kinda like Jawbreaker (1999) meets The Breakfast Club (1985). Christian Slater looks great in this movie, despite being somewhat psychotic. I recommend this film to anyone and everyone, except for people that might get sick to the stomach about drinking some type of cleaner shit with chemicals.

    Beetlejuice is another black comedy film that I like. A big-time director that everybody knows for black comedy (typically light black comedy) is Tim Burton. I'm not much of a fan of his, besides Edward Scissorhands (even though that can be considered somewhat a drama/fantasy). Most of his other films I don't like. Any opinions of black comedies?

    Yes XD Billy and Mandy would be considered a black comedy. A very light one though.
