Horror for the Horrified


Horror is an underrated genre of film that I feel needs more attention and appreciation from the mainstream audience and film critics. It has its own techniques and subtleties that are unique to itself, and I wanted to create a piece that highlighted these, while encouraging a new audience to engage with the genre. The resulting piece is a book that mirrors film techniques used in the horror genre, and acts as a guide to films, appealing to film enthusiasts. It can also be used as a physical manifestation of a psychological distance, aiding nervous audiences in engaging in horror and giving them a tool to ground themselves in reality.
