Laughing at horror movies is like being afraid of comedies, i.e. you're not doing it right.
Obviously you haven't seen The Cabin in the Woods. Or Shaun of the Dead. Or Army of Darkness. Or about a thousand others.

Besides, since when was it forbidden to mix emotions? There's plenty of worthwhile humor in the best movies in many genres -- horror, action, romance, drama, you name it. And the best comedies have moments of seriousness. Really good stories run us through a gamut of emotions.
