Horror films are the most commercially viable low-budget film genre as well as one of the most timeless and enduring. This class will involve a weekly analysis of a well-known horror film as well as the group writing of a horror script. We will explore what a horror film is and isn’t, what the rules and requirements of the genre are, and how the genre can be stretched. The goal is to come to a deeper understanding of cinematic storytelling in general through the prism of one specific genre.
