Have you ever wanted to improve your ability to write Horror Genre screenplays by 100%...200%…300% or more? If so, then here's how you can gut, slice, chainsaw, bite, hack, howl and chew your way to the top by writing Horror screenplays that slit throats, haunt houses, cook brains and tear souls apart.
Believe it or not, it doesn't matter how much you already know about the Horror genre.
Some of the tips inside this book include:
How to create horrific stories that are so potent, they are almost guaranteed to make people sweat and shiver in their seats. (Even if they normally eat Horror movies for breakfast!)
Why everything you've been taught about the Oedipus complex is wrong, and how to really use this story pattern to the bitter, gruesome end in any Horror genre screenplay. (These little known story-structure details will be eagerly read by agents, producers and studio execs and do a FAR better job of selling your story than the cliches and conventions taught in so many other screenwriting books.)
How to tap into three human anxieties that none of the screenwriting “gurus” ever discuss. (It's astonishing how many screenwriters don't know about these anxieties, and yet they are simple thumbscrews that will terrify audiences around the world.)
The real reasons why and how the most famous Horror movies succeed at the box office - including the screenwriting behind Child's Play, Nightmare On Elm Street and The Hellraiser series. (Learn these reasons and you'll be able to spin screenwriting you've already done but haven't sold into Horror genre gold…bloody gold, but still gold!)
Countless examples of how to turn normally “boring” Horror cliches into compelling scenes of terror. (This is the kind of information that will bring spanking new screenwriters quickly up to speed.)
And much, much more ...
