Illustration for article titled What Supposedly Scary Story Made You Laugh Instead?

The line between terror and hilarity is kind of ill-defined at the best of times. There's a reason why we have so many horror comedies. But sometimes, a movie, TV show or book sets out to be scary... and just winds up making you laugh. What's the most unintentionally funny piece of horror you've ever seen?


Please include a picture, book cover, clip, poster, or representative piece of artwork for your chosen story that was supposed to be scary but wound up being funny. And please mention the title and why it made you laugh instead of scream. Thanks!
