    Can anyone list the names of all the horror spoof movies that have come out over the years? My wife has been driving me crazy about one that she cannot remember. I'm sure there are quite a few.

    There are quite a few. But many are bad.
    Depending on how far back you want to go, I always thought one of the best was "Student Bodies" from 1981. Unfortunately, not available on DVD as far as I know....

    I guess as far as anyone can remember. I wish they would release "Student Bodies" on DVD!

    Er, Bob, what about the Scary Movie series? Also, there was in the 80s Saturday The 14th, April Fool's Day, and Pandemonium. Plus, there's Leslie Nielsen and Linda Blair in Repossessed. Of course you could go all the way back to the Abbott & Costello films that spoofed the classic Universal monsters, or the comic version of The Cat & The Canary starring Bob Hope, or even Harold Lloyd in 1920's silent classic Haunted Spooks!

    It also depends on how broad you want to define "spoof". Is "Ghoulies" a spoof of "Gremlins" and "Critters", or it's own legitimate horror franchise? "Fright Night" was kind of spoof-like regarding old-fashioned vampire flicks.

    I wouldn't call those "spoofs". They were horror flicks with a comedic bent, but they didn't try to parody things ala the Scary Movie franchise or something like Saturday the 14th...

    Bob, is there a particular scene, locale or visual or line of dialogue that she's recalling?

    Yeah, that would be helpful. There's a good chance we'd be able to name the movie, even with the slightest hint. Lots of people who like the horror genre really like the spoof flicks as well. Any ideas when she saw it would help, too.
    To add to the list, there's Shriek if You Know What I Did Last Friday the Thirteenth, and going back way further, National Lampoon's Class Reunion from 1982.

    I think we may have found it and did not realize it. "Student Bodies".
    Thanks everyone!

    Saw Student Bodies on Friday night on Scream (Canadian horror movie channel on cable). 'Bout died in the "scene required to get an R rating." Dumb fun.

    Another total spoof is Die Hard Dracula. Its micro-budget, shot in the Czech Republic and L.A. It does some really weird things to the Dracula mythos, but it has some lusty vampiresses in it. Ever seen coffins fly before? Yep, it happens. Did you know that Dracula could spout lightning from his fingertips? Yep. Its on Youtube if you want to see a real different take on things.
