‘Horror’ Screenplays

One of the ‘Primary Genres.’

There are 13 ‘Primary Genres’ we’re all familiar with. Here’s one of them, explained.

Horror films feature elements that leave people with an overwhelming sense of fear and dread. Horror movies often include serial killers or monsters as persistent, evil antagonists to play on viewers’ fears or nightmares. Audiences who love the horror genre seek out these movies specifically for the adrenaline rush produced by ghosts, gore, monsters, and jump scares. Films that fall into the horror sub-genres include macabre, ghost stories, gothic horror movies, science fiction horror movies, supernatural movies, dark fantasy movies, psychological horror movies, and slasher movies.


The Exorcist (1973) and A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) fall under the horror genre.
