A horror movie is a must-see for horror enthusiasts, as it takes the viewer to a place they might otherwise never see themselves – a place where horror and the unknown meet with terrifying intensity. What makes a great horror film?
For starters, you have to know how to make a horror movie, or at least know where to go if you want to learn the ropes. First of all, it’s important to think about what you’re trying to accomplish when making your movie. Are you trying to scare the audience, frighten them, or just give them some good scare?
Next, you’ll need to think about what genre you want to make a horror movie about. There are horror movies that are set in the past, such as “Carrie”American Psycho”, but there are also movies that take place in the future, such as “The Exorcist”. Also, horror movies that revolve around the supernatural can be very different from those that involve monsters, or ghosts, and even other forms of supernatural activity. Take some time to read up on the different genres so that you will be able to properly choose your movie.
If you are making a movie for kids, then your goal is probably not to make it too scary, but rather scare enough parents that they will buy a video game for their kids to watch. But this is not a good way to teach them about the importance of human life, so don’t make your horror movie about the last person you saw standing on the edge of a cliff.
Also, you’ll want to choose a theme for your horror movie. This is probably the most difficult part of writing a movie as you can never predict what your audience will find scary, but once you’ve figured out what makes a movie scary you should have a general idea on how to write a screenplay and then plot out your characters and events. Also, the theme of your movie will dictate the type of costumes you will need.
Once you have done all of the above, you can begin to write your horror movie, and after that you will have the ability to start casting and begin pre-production as well as filming. Once you’re finished, you should be ready to get started making your horror movie!
Writing a screenplay takes a lot of patience. It also requires a lot of writing! So be sure that you spend a lot of time researching and planning your screenplay. This is also the point in which you will have to invest in a good horror book.
So now you’ve learned how to make a horror movie, you’ve written the script, and you’re ready to start writing! Now it’s time to start learning how to do it!
