  1. 1. Exploring genre Horror
  2. 2. What is a horror film? Horror is a film genre seeking to elicit a negative emotional reaction from viewers by playing on the audience's primal fears. Horror films often feature scenes that startle the viewer. They may overlap with the fantasy, supernatural, and thriller genres.

  5. 5. Could I produce a horror film trailer? After analysing other horror film trailers and looking at the genre conventions I have decided that it would be possible for me to create a horror film trailer. However, horror films can be highly subjective and need to be very good/scary to be successful, this would put pressure on my production company as creating a film to compete with award winning horrors on a small budget may prove difficult. Mise en scene wouldn't be too difficult as filming at night and make up for things such as cuts and blood would work well.
