<ul><li>Definitions of Horror Movie Sub-Genres from http://www.suite101.com/content/classifying-horror-a194735 </li></ul><ul><li>The Slasher </li></ul><ul><li>This is possibly the most well-known horror sub-genre. While the modern slasher often intends to entertain the audience more than it tries to scare them, there has been some terrifying slasher tales out there and the format has an instant hook. At its core, a slasher tale will follow the “10 Little Indians” format first perfected by Agatha Christie in her 1939 novel And Then There Were None , wherein a group of characters (often teenagers) are picked off one by one by some kind of horrific character which can range from a disfigured lunatic to a man in a mask. Some of the more famous slashers are Jason Voorhees in Friday the 13th , Freddy Kreuger in A Nightmare on Elm Street , Michael Myers in Halloween and Leatherface in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre . </li></ul><ul><li>The Supernatural Horror </li></ul><ul><li>As soon as you bring in anything supernatural or beyond this earth – be it ghosts, demons, zombies, cenobites or alien invaders, the story becomes a supernatural horror. This sort of tale interweaves into a lot of different sub-genres of horror and includes a vast library of undead villains such as Dracula, Anne Rice’s vampires, George Romero’s zombies in Night of the Living Dead or the demon in The Exorcist make their home here. </li></ul><ul><li>Realistic Horror Films </li></ul><ul><li>“ Realistic” is a bit of an exaggeration here but overall, this classification tends to refer to movies and books focused on things such as serial killers such as Norman Bates in Psycho or Hannibal Lector in Silence of the Lambs . One could also argue that the Saw films fit here as well </li></ul><ul><li>The Horror/Comedy Movie </li></ul><ul><li>The idea of a horror/comedy might, at first glance, seem to go against everything that the horror genre stands for. However, upon further consideration it really isn’t such a stretch; after all, is the shock that causes one to scream really all that different from the shock that causes one to laugh? The most celebrated horror/comedy might be Sam Raimi’s fantastic Evil Dead trilogy but other worthwhile mentions are Return of the Living Dead and Wes Craven's slasher spoof, Scream . </li></ul><ul><li>How Does All This Horror Fit Into the Same Genre? </li></ul><ul><li>The thing that becomes most obvious by these examples is that, in fact, many of the movies and/or books mentioned don’t fit quite so perfectly into one sub-genre or another; different elements of the same tale allow it to fit into multiple sub-genres, such as when a supernatural slasher is shown in a comedic light. Horror is a very expansive genre that can bend in any direction, with millions of potential ideas still waiting to be explored. While classifying the sub-genres will help with organization, actually setting them down in absolute terms or trying to define them – or the genre itself – is truly impossible. </li></ul>
CREEP <ul><li>Lasts for 1 minute 46 seconds </li></ul><ul><li>It is set in quite a dark place, which is common with a lot of horrors. </li></ul><ul><li>The trailer doesn’t show a release date. </li></ul><ul><li>It gives the audience an idea of what happens at the beginning of the film but doesn’t give the audience any clues to the conclusion. </li></ul><ul><li>The trailer shows one definite main character, who follows the typical character that is used in horrors as she is a young, attractive female. The trailer also briefly introduces other characters all if which are men. It shows a couple of men who seem to work on the tracks and two other men who seem to be in the same position as the girl. The trailer also gives a couple of quick glimpses of the ‘creep’ however leaving enough still hidden to have not given away too much. </li></ul>
