PostSubject: What is A Horror Film   Mon May 12, 2008 11:49 pm

Horror films originate from the horror genre and are designed to elicit fright, fear, terror, or horror from viewers. In horror film plots, evil forces, events, or characters, sometimes of supernatural origin, intrude into the everyday world. Horror movies usually include a central villain. Early horror films often drew inspiration from characters and stories from classic literature, such as Dracula, Frankenstein, The Mummy, The Wolf Man, Phantom of the Opera and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Later horror films, in contrast, often drew inspiration from the insecurities of life after World War II, giving rise to the three distinct, but related, sub-genres: the horror-of-personality film, the horror-of-Armageddon film, and the horror-of-the-demonic film. The last sub-genre may be seen as a modernized transition from the earliest horror films, expanding on their emphasis on supernatural agents that bring horror to the world.[1]

Horror films have been criticized for their graphic violence and dismissed as low budget B-movies and exploitation films. Nonetheless, all the major studios and many respected directors, including Alfred Hitchcock, Stanley Kubrick and Francis Ford Coppola, have made forays into the genre. The famous Hindi movie director and producer Ram Gopal Varma has experimented with several horror films, including Raat (The Night) (1992), Darna Mana Hai (Being Afraid is not allowed) (2003), and Darna Zaroori Hai (Being Afraid is necessary) (2006). Serious critics have analyzed horror films through the prisms of genre theory and the auteur theory. Some horror films incorporate elements of other genres such as science fiction, fantasy, mockumentary, black comedy, and thrillers. Many horror films are in the public domain (e.g. The Little Shop of Horrors, Night of the Living Dead, The Terror, Suspiria, Embryo)

You know a lot about films, Ren. Not that I'm really surprised. You've lived ten years less than me and probably seen nearly as many movies as I have.

Hah, that was great. The techno-face-off was sweet, as was the "OH SNAP" ending. We should get a good DV cam and throw together some film. I know how to make a steady cam system for cheap... of course the camera is the expensive part.

I don't mind doing some writing. It's what I live for.

Probably should hold off on sending it to me yet, or if you do send it I might not have time to get to it for a bit. Right now I'm working pretty exclusively on my book rewrite and Marching Darkness. When I finish Darkness, though, I should have some free time.
