  1. 1. GENRE ASSIGNMENT
  2. 2. Genre: Horror Sub Genre: Rom-Com Horror films are movies that strive to elicit the emotions of fear, horror and terror from viewers. Their plots frequently involve themes of death, the supernatural or mental illness. Many horror movies also include a central villain. Early horror movies are largely based on classic literature of the gothic/horror genre, such as Dracula , Frankenstein , The Phantom of the Opera and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde . More recent horror films, in contrast, often draw inspiration from the insecurities of life after World War II, giving rise to the three distinct, but related, sub-genres: the horror-of-personality Psycho film, the horror-of-armageddon Invasion of the Body Snatchers film, and the horror-of-the-demonic The Exorcist film.
  3. 3. Sub Genre: Rom-Com <ul><li>Romantic comedy films are movies with light-hearted, humorous plotlines, centered on romantic ideals such as a true love able to surmount most obstacles. Romantic comedy films are a sub-genre of comedy films as well as of romance films and often have elements of screwball comedies and stoner comedies. </li></ul><ul><li>Romantic comedy is a hybrid genre of fiction, especially motion pictures, in which a story about romance is presented in a comedic style. Works in this genre are generally considered light-hearted, and are sometimes associated with the vaguely derogatory terms &quot;chick lit&quot; or &quot;chick flick&quot;, meaning &quot;primarily aimed at a female audience&quot;. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Narrative The narrative of the music video is a Love story and a fight between good and evil. Two Zombies are living peacefully in their ‘haunted house’ when they are attacked by a Mad scientist and two surgeons, were they are taken away to be experimented on. The couple start to be tortured in a melodramatic humour then miraculously escape and return back to their home, ‘haunted house’. The narrative is extreme with comedy elements. It is a simple storyline yet with an effective storyline and moral plot.
  5. 5. Audience <ul><li>We want our music video to be aimed at young teenagers, but with humour more significant to the older teens. The video appeals to both boys and girls, with the horror and action counter balancing with the rom-com. </li></ul><ul><li>Our video is also going to be aimed at this new market of ‘Twilight’ and ‘Vampire’ institution. </li></ul>http://www.shmoop.com/twilight/genre.html This is a review of the Twilight book and where it fits in which genre or a new genre.
