If one is going for scares, the horror genre is arguably the hardest to get right. Even tougher than attempting to garner laughs in comedy films, horror filmmakers not only have to perfect the art of pacing and building tension, but they often need to locate something which sets them apart. This could be a variety of things– knowing their audience in relation to the myriad sub-genres within horror and really specializing in one; reflecting the neuroses and fears at the heart of the human subject through allegory; or, perhaps most crucially, having their finger on the pulse of sociopolitical issues, whether timeless or topical. This latter classification is often what makes scary movies truly important.
