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 what is missed is the hard-hitting commentary on society and life contained in those works.

I loved this book! Even if you are not a horror movie fan, the first chapter “tour of hell” is very very interesting with facts from how the genre got started and just what does make people jump out of their seats. 🙂

I bought this book to learn more about the art of horror screenwriting. The technique used to spell it all out is awesome! Finally, no more reading long boring manuals. No more trying to find the next big thing to help me catapult my horror stories into a real action script over the top. The single greatest challenge anyone can face is growing and sustaining screenplays that will capture any audience. This book is a comprehensive prescriptive recommendation to start from ground zero and end up with a richly documented, fact-filled, example-loaded, no-nonsense script to become the first choice
Essential to mastering the nature of fear.

Horror Screenwriting by Devin Watson is at its core a book on screenwriting and covers much of the information you would see in a typical book on screenwriting. But it’s also about writing screenplays specifically for horror films, and this is where Watson brings his expertise to the subject to give us more than just general screenwriting advice, but advice on how to craft a truly terrifying story that is also thought-provoking.
