Tales of horror have always been with us, from Biblical times to the Gothic novel to successful modern day authors and screenwriters. Though the genre is often maligned, it is huge in popularity and its resilience is undeniable. Marc Blake and Sara Bailey offer a detailed analysis of the horror genre, including its subgenres, tropes and the specific requirements of the horror screenplay. Tracing the development of the horror film from its beginnings in German Expressionism, the authors engage in a readable style that will appeal to anyone with a genuine interest in the form and the mechanics of the genre. This book examines the success of Universal Studio's franchises of the '30s to the Serial Killer, the Slasher film, Asian Horror, the Supernatural, Horror Vérité and current developments in the field, including 3D and remakes. It also includes step-by-step writing exercises, annotated extracts from horror screenplays and interviews with seasoned writers/directors/ producers discussing budget restrictions, screenplay form and formulas and how screenplays work during shooting.

How to Write a Horror Movie is a close look at an always-popular (but often disrespected) genre. It focuses on the screenplay and acts as a guide to bringing scary ideas to cinematic life using examples from great (and some not-so-great) horror movies. Author Neal Bell examines how the basic tools of the scriptwriter's trade - including structure, dialogue, humor, mood, characters, and pace - can work together to embody personal fears that will resonate strongly on screen. Screenplay examples include classic works such as 1943's I Walked With A Zombie and recent terrifying films that have given the genre renewed attention like writer/director Jordan Peele's critically acclaimed and financially successful Get Out. Since fear is universal, the book considers films from around the world including the 'found-footage' [REC] from Spain (2007), the Swedish vampire movie, Let The Right One In (2008) and the Persian-language film Under The Shadow (2016). The book provides insights into the economics of horror-movie making, and the possible future of this versatile genre. It is the ideal text for screenwriting students exploring genre and horror, and aspiring scriptwriters who have an interest in horror screenplays.

Included in this book are 366 tarot spreads, one for each day of the year, any year, to inspire stories and overcome writer's block. You can use this guide to find movies to watch today, or you can use it for inspiration in your writing, whether you're a screenwriter, a novelist, or any kind of fiction writer. Some spreads list up to 20 ranked movie suggestions but pay attention to the rare or unique combinations listing none if you're looking for unusual story ideas. All cards have properties explained in the first pages. The major arcana are powerful and tend to narrow down movie lists. They have more properties than minor arcana, which offer broader results. This tool tells you what kind of movies have rarely or never been made and warns you about saturated niches. In theory, for every film listing, the lower the frequency indicator, the more unique the concept. If you get no results, you should probably write that story. These writing prompts are based on about 3000 horror and horror-adjacent movies I've reviewed and rated.

The original edition of Planks of Reason was the first academic critical anthology on horror. In retrospect, it appeared as a kind of homage to the "golden age" of the American horror film, as this genre played an increasing role in film culture and American life. This revised edition retains the spirit of the original, but also offers new takes on rediscovered classics and recent developments in the genre.

Contemporary Gothic and Horror Film

This book looks at contemporary Gothic cinema within a transnational approach.

This book looks at contemporary Gothic cinema within a transnational approach. With a focus on the aesthetic and philosophical roots which lie at the heart of the Gothic, the study invokes its literary as well as filmic forebears by exploring how these styles informed strands of the modern filmic Gothic: the ghost narrative, folk horror, the vampire movie, cosmic horror and, finally, the zombie film. In recent years, the concept of transnationalism has ‘trans’-cended its original boundaries, perhaps excessively in the minds of some. Originally defined in the wake of the rise of globalisation in the 1990s, as a way to study cinema beyond national boundaries, where the look and the story of a film reflected the input of more than one nation, or region, or culture. It was considered too confining to study national cinemas in an age of internationalization, witnessing the fusions of cultures, and post-colonialism, exile and diasporas. The concept allows us to appreciate the broader range of forces from a wider international perspective while at the same time also engaging with concepts of nationalism, identity and an acknowledgement of cinema itself.
