Despite a reputation for grue and gore, Horror is one of the most intriguing movie genres. At its best, horror offers filmmakers a chance to explore the darkest parts of human nature, helping us to deal with our existential fears about mortality. Or if that's too high minded, there's always plenty of grue and gore as well. Don't have nightmares.
