What counts as a "horror film"?

What counts as a “horror film”?

Trying to come at the ancient question with fresh eyes, Geoff offers three frightening “non-horror” films, Scott tries to prove they’re horror, and everyone goes home happy (except people who think horror movies have to have something supernatural in them).

That’s the first half of the show, and in the second half, they answer your screenwriting questions about when to get out of a scene [38:00 – 43:50], moving to Canada to write for TV [43:50 – 50:00], writing on-the-nose character confessions that work [50:00 – 54:30], and how to cut/add to scripts that are too long/too short to be features [54:30 – 65:00].
