Research into the Horror Genre

The Horror genre is a genre of film which seeks to inflict negative emotions of fear, panic and disgust onto the viewer by portraying stereotypical horrible and scary things such as violence, gore and the paranormal. The genre has very typical conventions and sub genres and it is important to know what these are so we can decide the sub genre of our short horror film and apply the typical conventions of horror into it as we know that they inflict negative emotions on the viewer.

Below is a link to an interactive presentation which I made with all my research on the horror genre and more detail about the convections of this genre.
