A practical how to guide for horror filmmakers, this book analyzes how cinematic tools such as acting, makeup, costuming, set decor, framing, cinematography, lighting, editing, and sound are used to create horror on screen. The guide explores aesthetic and creative considerations in conveying fear, suspense, and dread by examining scenes from popular genre films. Filmmakers will learn practical applications of cinematic tools to effectively unnerve, shock, and entertain audiences. Horror fans, in turn, can find a deeper appreciation of the films' ability to frighten.
