View Full Version : Is a monster movie a horror movie?

Just wondering what ppl's thought's were..I say yes, I mean you have monsters, usually alot of destruction and horrifying situations.

Maybe not usually considered when we think of horror, but certainly not unworthy of being on a horror board.

Bumping, only cuz I'm being a prick and wondering why Alien/Thing/Legend can be talked about but other scifi/fantasy can't.

well...yes and no...you have Monsters Inc. and Jeepers Creepers.....LOL!

Sorry for the idiotic joke back there...but a serious monster movie can be considered horror...

Thanx Arrow, I am gonna throw you an e-mail, I actually just posted this to see what folks thought. It was the Jason/Argonauts thread that got me wondering.

And yes I realize I got a small bit on the sarcastic side with that thread and on this, and I really will try to watch it with that, I like it here and want to stay.

Yes monsters=horror. Always have , always will. Without them, horror wouldn't have evolved into other things. Me? I am all for the hairy rubber suit. Zip me up and point me at the nearest miniaturized set. Tokyo goes down-again.

Horror and sci-fi, same thing. If they ain't wearin' Starfleet uniforms, they are ok with me. Live longa and prostrate.
