From the terrified double-takes of Lou Costello and Bob Hope and the rapid-fire wisecracks of Michael Keaton's Beetlejuice to the ghoulish sight gags of Shaun of the Dead, horror and humor have been intertwined, on screens large and small, for decades. This edited collection of essays surveys the rich and varied history of the horror-comedy in film and on television, ranging from the 1940s to the twenty-first century.
