Before Raghava Lawrence came up with Muni, Tamil horror films followed a one-formula-fits-all template. Muni franchise was a gamechanger in the genre. Horror comedies depict the ridiculous and funny side to fear, with the protagonists mistaking the ghost for a fake and later regretting it. While some horror comedies are bland, quite a handful of them makes for a good watch. Here, we take a look at six such movies.
