This generation is a special one. We might have a lot of haters but they will never be able to bring the Generation Y down. We are the stars of YouTube, the world-renouned photographers of Instagram, and the supermodels of Snapchat. So everyone else should follow us on Twitter because we are #kindofabigdeal and #wecantstop. To catch you up, here’s who we are and how we’ve made it this far…we’re talking hashtags.
Where it all began. This catchy little phrase became the perfect description for when you have maybe crossed a risky boundary but you just don’t feel bad about it. As the White Chicks movie perfectly describes, “You were thinking it! Yeah, but you said it!” This is hashtag boasts the truth with a little bit of spice.
#fml / #wtf
When you’re cussing but not actually because abbreviations “don’t count”. You know you love it, we all do. Plus, there is nothing more satisfying than being way too dramatic about some semi-rough situation.
Tongue out, Miley Cyrus style. You know what I’m talking about. These hashtags are absolutely necessary when you are living the dream with your friends in that sketchy house party that you found through a roommate’s older brother.
#winning / #swag
The competition stage. You had a great mid-day victory? You better tell the world. And if you’re feeling good about those sick glasses…show them off, duh. A little bit of swag never hurt anyone. You keep doing you.
My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard, and d*** right, it’s better than yours. This hashtag is absolutely essential when you’ve just had the best/prettiest/amazeballs meal of your life…literally.
#getswoll #gains #riseandgrind
Sweet kicks, color coordinated attire, bumping playlist in the headphones, conveniently fashionable headband (optional), sweat beads dripping, adrenaline pumping, heart racing, instagram posted…you know what it is. We out here grinding.
#hashtag / #nofilter
Alright cool kids. You think you’re better just because you “don’t care” about the obsessive art of hashtagging? And let’s be real for like two seconds, you know you AT LEAST pressed auto-enhance on that gorgeous so-called “no filter” pic…and now there is a trust issue between us. So you better check yourself before you wreck yourself when it comes to walking that no-filter line of yours.
#mcm / #transformationtuesday / #wcw / #tbt
These classic hashtags provide the perfect basis for weekly updates. When you want to post but don’t have anything fabulous that you are doing right at the moment, don’t even fret because you can always default back to the OG posts. Long live the traditionals.
#letmetakeaselfie / #selfie
Can everyone please stop what you are doing immediately and give a huge thank you to the genius creation of the pop hit “Selfie” for bringing this once looked down upon hashtag to a newfound glorification. The Chainsmokers have accomplished what no one has ever dreamed of. This is ultimate success people.
Woah there. My eyes just had to re-read that about a thousand times. And I am still not sure that I know what you’re talking about so I gave up and scrolled passed. Please reduce the amount of brain power required to view your post, please and thank you.
#way #too #many #hashtags #no #one #cares
I can’t. I literally cannot. This is too much. Is every single one of those a hundred percent necessary, like really? And even though I am annoyed…I probably read every single one. So you got me, but it’s whatever I don’t even care. Kinda.
You know you love it. Even if you hate it, you love it. Even if you don’t have an opinion toward it, yep, you love it. Don’t even lie. Jump on the blessed train, you won’t regret it…and if so, refer back to yolo.
Before anyone else? Are you sure…before your mom? Before your grandma? Before Beyonce? BEFORE YOUR PUG? I’m just not too sure about that…again, trust issues in the air.
These hashtags mark where we have been and what we have socially conquered, but now we must trend the hashtags of our future. Between our outstanding creativity and our stellar photographic skills, Generation Y will continue making history, one hashtag at a time. It is up to us… like by like, favorite by favorite, RETWEET BY RETWEET to prove to the world the power of our generation. #gobigorgohome
Here’s a brand new list of the top 25 best comedy horror movies ever made! If you love horror films, cult classics and gross comedies, you will fall into disgusting love with these films.
We’ll start with number 25 and move towards number 1. It’s more suspenseful that way…. Muahahaha!
#25 Zombeavers (2014)
I thought it only right to begin this post with the most recent comedy horror on the list. Zombeavers is a film with a ridiculous, scary, sexy basis! College kids attacked by killer zombie beavers. Awesome! Enough said, moving on.
#24 Fido (2006)
After the dead of the world are transformed into zombies because of space radiation, the Zomcon Corporation devises a domestication collar to neutralize and control the zombies. Timmy’s parents don’t like the idea, but get him a brand new zombie for a pet, which he names Fido. A boy and his zombie, its an age old story!
#23 Seed of Chucky (2004)
Child’s play was one terrifying flick! But Chucky returns with a sense of humor in this third comedy horror of the franchise. Chuck and Tiff, his wife (I know it’s weird, but bear with me), are resurrected by their son, Glen, when he discovers that they are to star as dummies in a Hollywood movie. Chucky and Tiff are less than thrilled that their son lacks the murderous tendencies that they wanted so badly for him and hilarity ensues. No, really!
#22 The Monster Squad (1987)
Dracula is collecting monsters to help him take over the world. Who can stop him? A group of pre-teen loser, monster fanatics and a kid-sister of course!
#21 Piranha 3D (2010)
This remake is campier and scarier than the original! An earthquake releases an overly aggressive, school of piranha during spring break. Scientists discover that they came from an underground prehistoric lake filled with piranha eggs. But wait, if these are baby piranha…where are the parents?
#20 Re-Animator (1985)
The cat came back! When attending medical school make certain that your new roommate isn’t some sort of evil-Dr. Frankenstein-ish scientist. And at all costs, don’t let him involve you and your girlfriend in his experiments of bringing the dead back to life! This movie is as good as it gets for B comedy horror movies!
#19 Killer Klowns from Outer Space (1988)
My worst nightmare! Killer aliens who look like clowns capturing and murdering residents of a small town. They just look like happy clowns with happy clown weapons. Chilling and funny, I think. Nope, just chilling!
#18 Ghostbusters (1984)
“Who you gonna call? Ghostbusters!” Three paranormal scientists start a ghost-extraction business in New York City. Just in time to save the Big Apple from a terrifying evil-spirit emerging from another dimension! The cast will have you laughing and crying ectoplasm…Gross!
#17 The Lost Boys (1987)
Don’t tell Mom, but I think her boss is the head vampire! Can two brothers stop the town vampire clan from turning everyone they love into bloodthirsty vamps? They can sure try! Joined by another pair of brothers, the four teens battle evil to save the town. Oh, and Grandpa helps too!
#16 Hatchet II (2010)
After singly escaping the disfigured, mammoth of a killer Victor Crowley, Marybeth returns with an army of gunmen to end his reign of the bayou. I don’t think they brought enough guns for this maniac killing spree! This comedy horror movie is smart, bloody, and laughable.
#15 House (1986)
The ultimate 80’s B-rated comedy horror movie! An ex-Vietnam vet/author returns to his childhood home after his aunt’s passing and begins a horrifically cheesy journey to defeat the other-worldly forces residing in the house before they kill him. Gruesome (yet not at all scary) monsters and self-animating garden tools are sure to make you laugh! As a bonus, George Wendt (Norm from Cheers) is the less than helpful, but hilarious neighbor. Available on Netflix all month!
#14 Tucker and Dale vs. Evil (2010)
Tucker just bought himself his very first vacation home and these pesky college kids just keep killing themselves on his property! Really! Tucker and Dale are well-meaning backwoods dudes who are paying the price for saving the life of a young woman named Allison in this hilarious comedy horror self-slasher film!
#13 Dead Snow (2009)
Believe me, the subtitles are worth it! Med students vacationing in the woods are picked off one by one by…wait for it…Nazi Zombies! That mysterious old man tried to warn you, but you just didn’t listen!
#12 Dead Alive (1993)
“Your mother ate my dog!” An evil mother of a young man tries to sabotage her son’s relationship and is bitten by a creepy monkey creature that kills her and turns her into a zombie. She then goes on a rampage consuming pets and people alike! This gory comedy is a spoof of a 1950’s film “Braindead” and far exceeds the enjoy ability of its predecessor.
#11 Idle Hands (1999)
An adorable teen stoner’s hand begins to have murder on its mind. Even after hacking off the affected limb, Anton Tobias (played by Devon Sawa) needs the help of his two murdered best friends (who have come back to life as helpful zombies of course!) and a sexy high priestess to save the soul of his pretty new girlfriend (Jessica Alba) from the terror of his own hand!
#10 Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn (1987)
This Evil Dead installment only underperforms its younger brother, Army of Darkness, on this list because of its focus being more on the gruesome horror as opposed to purely goofy comedy. But never fear there is plenty of comedy here! Ash Williams, played by Bruce Campbell, fights off onslaughts of manic demons in a cabin in the most ridiculous fashion ever! Will he make it to morning light? A must see for comedy horror lovers!
#9 Zombieland (2009)
Bill Murray is a zombie! Not really! A young fearful student creates successful rules on how to survive the zombie apocalypse but after meeting a gun-crazed stranger who just wants to find the last remaining Twinkie on earth and two cute but deadly sisters, he has to change his plans.
#8 Black Sheep (2006)
Not the Chris Farley movie! Genetically mutated sheep feasting on the residents of a quiet New Zealand town… Sounds like comedy-horror gold to me! Their cold, lifeless stares and bloodthirsty baa-s make these sheep your worst nightmare!
#7 The Night of the Creeps (1986)
Alien brain parasites infected my prom date! Oh no! This film has amassed an impressive cult following that has endured over 20 years! The film combines horror genres, including zombies and aliens, and transforms them into a comedic killer film to span the ages.
#6 Club Dread (2004)
A little-known flick in the genre of comedy horror movies from the Broken Lizard guys (creators of Super Troopers), this film is a gem! A serial killer begins a rampage through the classy Coconut Pete’s island resort for swingers and the sex-fueled staff is tasked with finding the killer or becoming the next dead beach-body! Club Dread is a fabulous spoof on classic slasher-films.
#5 The Cabin in the Woods (2012)
Touch it and die! When young friends discover a trove of mysterious items in the cellar of a creepy cabin…well, you know the story. Or do you!?!? This is one of the best comedy horror movies and carries a surprisingly hilarious twist that will ensure that you never go camping again!
#4 Young Frankenstein (1974)
Don’t you dare mispronounce his name! Young Frankenstein is a parody film about Dr. Victor Frankenstein’s descendant who has spent his whole life denying his heritage, “It’s pronounced Fronkenstien!” Things change after he inherits his grandfather’s castle (along with trusty sidekick Igor and lusty assistant Inga) and begins recreating the experiment himself! The terror of mad scientist meets the electric hilarity of lead actor Gene Wilder and director Mel Brooks to bring Mary Shelley’s 1818 novel back to life!
#3 Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)
Recently engaged Janet and Brad are no match for the sultry advances of their emergency host, Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry), and his sex-crazed-Transylvanian staff. But what are they to do with a broken down car in a storm like this? This cult-classic film will make everyone jump up and do the “Time Warp” again and again. It is even shown live every October all across the country!
#2 Army of Darkness (1992)
This series has acquired quite the cult following over the years. Although all three movies are hilarious, this one is my absolute favorite and takes time travel to a whole new level! Ash fights to return to the present after being transported to Medieval times (with his gun and chainsaw of course!) and is tasked with finding the magical book Necronomicon in the land of the undead.
And our #1 of all comedy horror movies ever is….
#1 Shaun of the Dead (2004)
“You’ve got red on you…” You try dealing with a zombie epidemic, whilst dealing with an idiotic best friend, fighting with your girlfriend, and attempting to reconcile with your mother and her abrasive husband at the same time! Shaun is a 30-something loser just trying to keep everyone alive in the midst of a crisis. Shaun of the Dead is a great movie with a hilarious comedic twist on zombie infestation and the very best comedy horror film ever!
If only a muffin tin could talk. “Honey, I’m ready to hold more than just muffin mix and cupcake mix.” “Sure cupcakes and muffins are yummy but let’s make something that your grandmother would be proud of.” “I don’t want to wait for a special occasion to be used.” “Let’s go on a culinary adventure.”
