Sure, zombies are supposed to scare the everliving crap out of us: They like to eat flesh, sometimes tear humans limb from limb and generally flout most (well, all) established forms of social decorum. But the bloody funny 'Zombieland' is the latest in a growing line of flicks to prove that the walking dead proffer up plenty of opportunities for unmitigated hilarity.

Case in point: 'Zombieland' sees Woody Harrelson inventively dispatch flesh-eating former humans with everything from a baseball bat to hedge clippers to a banjo -- all while rattling off snappy one-liners and generally chewing the scenery with more fervor than a zombie devouring the leg meat of a twentysomething young lady. In short, it's brilliant.

To make sure this horror comedy trend continues, we're celebrating it in all its guffaw-inducing, gore-soaked glory by presenting clips of some zombie movie scenes that are so freaking hilarious it's scary. Check 'em out after the jump, then chime in with your favorites.

'Dead Snow' (2009)

What's the only thing more vile than zombies? Nazi zombies, of course. That's why it's so fun to watch a group of German medical students disembowel, decapitate, chainsaw in half, hammer to a pulp, and snowmobile to death hordes of Hitler's undead goose-steppers -- set against a picturesque winter landscape, of course. The best part about the scene, though: When a zombie bites one of our heroes on the arm, he simply hacks off the infected limb and laughs. Sadly, his moment of triumph turns sour when he gets bitten just south of the belt. What to do then?

Simon Pegg and his pals require a full two-and-a-half minutes -- and a whole lot of pumping up courtesy of Queen's 'Don't Stop Me Now' (which plays on the juke box) -- to kill one fat, over-the-hill zombie in this British horror parody. Honestly, that's probably better than we'd do.

Things can get boring when you're holed up on the roof of a mall with thousands of zombies milling about below. Turns out the best way to pass the time is by zeroing in on those that look like celebrities and blowing their brains out. So long, Zombie Jay Leno! Adios, Undead Rosie O'Donnell! Bite the big one, Flesh-Eating Burt Reynolds!

'Dead Alive' (1992)

Before he was the respected, Oscar-winning director of the 'Lord of the Rings' trilogy, Peter Jackson made horror schlock like this 1992 gem of directing debut, the climax of which sees a quiet momma's boy rise to the occasion, strap a lawnmower around his neck and plow through a houseful of zombies in one of the bloodiest scenes in movie history. Watching a decapitated zombie head get juiced in a blender for no apparent reason and a creepy little zombie baby get torched as it tries to crawl out of a dead girl's skull? Well, that's just gravy. Gooey, bloody, hilarious gravy.
