Horror Screenwriting: The Nature of Fear
Before Jigsaw, there was Freddy Krueger (Nightmare On Elm Street) and Jason Voorhees (Friday the 13th). Before those two were slicing and dicing up teenagers, there was Michael Myers and Leatherface. And long before that, there was Dracula, the Wolfman, Doctor Frankenstein and his monster. And so on into the dark and distant past.
Horror has, among all of the genres in film and written works, one of the longest, most distinguished, and often misunderstood bloodlines in history. It is often overlooked by critics who don’t see anything more than blood and guts on the screen, or a collection of cheap scares. But there is far more to it than that!
