So call a company to hold your hand and laugh with the inspiring movies listed below. All titles are available on VOD or SVOD.

In Peter Jackson’s first foray into cinema, the director of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies brings us a tasty zombie comedy with gallons and gallons of blood.

Have fun watching:

It all starts when the overprotective and repressive Vera Cosgrove (Elizabeth Moody) goes to spy on her son Lionel (Timothy Balme) with his girlfriend Paquita (Diana Peñalver) at the zoo. There, she is bitten by the fearsome Sumatran rat-monkey.

After the accident, she turns into a zombie. Her beloved son tries to keep her safely locked in the basement, but she runs away and turns most of the neighbors undead, as well as everyone at a high society party.

Extremely fun and with tasteless effects, Animal Hunger (Dead Alive, in the original) has an 89% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It’s the movie with one of the highest ratings on the platform in its slapstick horror genre. Unavoidable.

It’s a crazy adventure underpinned by the charm of protagonist Ash (Bruce Campbell) and the acrobatic direction of Sam Raimi. Here, Ash finds himself trapped in medieval times. To return to the present, he must search for the Necronomicon, a cursed book. The object, however, unleashes an army of the dead.

Despite being the least rated of the trilogy, A Night of the Dead 3 has its insane merits and 87% audience approval on Rotten Tomatoes, compared to 74% from critics. Pundits, however, praised the first two films with over 90% acceptance: The Devil’s Death (1981) and Night Out 2 (1987). See all three!

It is a French treasure hidden from Brazilians. In black and white, Happened Near Your House is a mockumentary about the quiet life of a serial killer. In the found footage style long before the Blair Witch Project (1999) and [REC] (2007), the film is a black comedy titled barbarities treated as banalities, for example infanticide and rape.

We follow a film crew that follows a serial killer as he plys his trade. During the recordings, the character talks about art, music, nature, society and life while killing postmen, pensioners and random people.

Little by little, he involves documentary filmmakers in his activities and the story changes in an incredible way. Best of all, this film is considered amateurish, being a graduation project of three friends. Yet it is as hideous as it is hilarious. To see for yesterday.

This is a classic 1990s Afternoon Session in the same vein as The Ghosts Have Fun (1988), by Tim Burton. Here, Robert Zemeckis promotes a satire of the world of cosmetics, plastics and the search for eternal youth.

Starring Bruce Willis, Meryl Streep and Goldie Hawn, the film is the story of a settling of scores between two old friends: one novelist and the other movie star. After losing her husband to her rival, the betrayed writer reappears breathtaking years later thanks to a drug of eternal life.

The actress follows suit, but discovers that immortality has a price. With several appalling visual effects and a few skeletons in the closet, Death Fits You is a shameful attempt to critique the aesthetic, but with big promises of laughs due to the ridiculous situations.

Marie (Anne Parillaud) is a vampire with a conscience: she only sucks the blood of criminals. However, she makes a mistake when she accidentally turns a violent crime lord, Sal Macelli (Robert Loggia), into one of the undead. To prevent a takeover of the city by bloodsucking gangsters, Marie teams up with an undercover cop (Anthony LaPaglia).

Much acclaimed director of the action comedy The Blues Brothers (1980), John Landis loses his hand here and composes a different, slow-paced film. Simply put, Innocent Bite has the dark, gory tone of Dario Argento and David Cronenberg in the 1970s-80s, but it’s a comedy horror with few scares and anemic laughs. This goes for the filmmaker’s marvelous trashy environment.

Five years before it became a television phenomenon, it was the film that inspired the hit series starring Sarah Michelle Gellar. In this supernatural coming-of-age story, teenage Buffy Summers (Kristy Swanson) receives a call from Merrick (Donald Sutherland) to train and fight vampires.

At the time, teenage wrestling sagas weren’t yet as popular as they were in the 2010s, but that’s the prelude to the sensation of series, books and movies. With average directing and a not-so-passionate plot, actors Kristy Swanson and Paul Reubens (famous for his TV and movie character Pee-Wee) lend credibility and make battling vampires fun. This is a rediscovery of the origins of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
