15 Horror Movies Turned Comedies Thanks To Jimmy Fallon’s Challenge

Tweet from user @matt789321 says: #AddAWordRuinAHorrorMovie the hills have googly eyes

It’s easy to forget how much one little word can change the entire tone of a sentence, story, or title.

In honor of spooky season, Jimmy Fallon asked his “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” audience to add one little word to the title of any horror movie that will change the entire plot in a split second. It’s part of a fun segment on Hashtags that always seems to stir Twitter’s creative juices. People tweeted their responses using the hashtag #AddAWordRuinAHorrorMovie, and some of them were so funny we just had to share!

1. This tweet is further proof that googly eyes make everything better.

We just love clever wordplay, and these Twitter users are pros! They managed to make us laugh just by adding a simple word, which is super impressive. Thanks for the laughs, folks.
