After years of waiting, we'll all finally get to see Drew Goddard's The Cabin in the Woods on April 13. The film, co-written by Avengers director Joss Whedon, is yet another movie about teenagers going to a… well, a cabin in the woods, where they're slaughtered one by one. But The Cabin in the Woods has a horror-comedy twist that we're still not technically allowed to tell you yet, but let's just say you should be ready to watch the conventions of the genre lampooned right along with your the audience's own apathy bloodlust. 

Of course, The Cabin in the Woods is but the latest in a long line of horror comedies. That is to say, genuinely scary movies that aren't afraid to be funny too. So before you see how The Cabin in the Woods stacks up to the classics, let's run down the Top Ten Horror Comedies you have to see… before you die!
