A black comedy (or dark comedy) is a comic work that employs farce and morbid humor, which, in its simplest form, is humor that makes light of subject matter usually considered taboo. Black humor corresponds to the earlier concept of gallows humor. Black comedy is often controversial due to its subject matter.

Some of my favorite Black Comedies:

1. Brazil
2. Dr. Strange Love
3. Catch 22
4. Mash

Dead Like Me-Another small screen Black Comedy by Bryan Fuller
Avoid the Big screen movie "Life after Death" at all cost.

That is not your daddy's shotgun cowboy!


Post holocaust movie.

"They talk to me about you"
"The voices in my head"

The part when they are trying to find the squeak in the bed springs is hilarious.

I should also have added this to my favourite foreign language films.
They speak English in what?

Considering what has been mentioned, I'm surprised this hasn't. Maybe knowing how much I love it, you were all leaving it for me?
