Disclaimer : These aren’t your regular movies
Dark comedy is probably the most evolved of the entire genre. This kind of cinema pokes fun at everything serious, even death. The idea is to lighten heavy concepts such as crime, crisis, mortality, and pretty much anything one would ideally never associate with hearty humor.
If you are watching a good film of this type, you’ll find yourself cracking up at things you’re not supposed to make fun of. That’s the sheer brilliance of such farce.
Obviously, this type of deadpan comedy isn’t for everyone. You could be horrified or shocked by what you’re watching, and still, laugh your gut out. Taboos are taken heads on and twisted into mad tales you won’t forget for a very long time.
For some, it could be gross, even eerie. But for those who’re willing to cross over from boring conventionalism, this is what you’ve been looking for.
Here is the list of my personal favorite black comedies specially hand-picked for you!
- In Bruges (2008)
- Tokyo Godfathers (2003)
- Snatch (2000)
- Wild Tales (2014)

P.S: These movies have +7.5 IMDB ratings and have the best scripts, unbeatable screenplay, amazing acting, and are uniquely twisted. You just cannot miss them!
So there you go, pick them randomly, and get set to tune into your dark, comical side.
I hope you find your favorite here! Enjoy!! 😉
