Okay, everyone. Now this will be it for today.
I just had to add this extra because I know a lot of you are writing horror scripts. Sign up for the following class. It can help clarify the fundamentals of horror writing. This class is also from Script.
the Horror Feature
Horror has been one of the staples of film ever
since the medium was invented. Perhaps that's because the genre taps into our
most primal fears—isolation, the unknown, and death—in a visual, visceral way.
But at the same time that we're frightened out of our wits, we are granted the
safety and protection of the theater. It's the best of all possible worlds. For
producers, making horror movies is a no-brainer: Intelligently written horror
costs very little to make, crosses language barriers, and consistently makes
money. Five of the 15 most profitable films of all time (by ROI) are horror:
Paranormal Activity, The Blair Witch Project, Night of the Living Dead,
Halloween, Friday the 13th, and
Open Water. This genre is truly a writer's medium: If you can present a new
version of an old concept and scare us on the page, your script can sell. Plus,
there is always room for innovation and creativity within the field. That's why
horror is a natural choice for many a screenwriter.
