Page 2 Screen talks to two paranormal experts about what constitutes good horror.
If you’re a screenwriter interested in writing horror, you could learn a lot from two ghostbusters. This week’s guests are Scott Markus (whatsyourghoststory.com) and Mike Huberty (othersidepodcast.com) and they’re paranormal experts, as well as horror film aficionados. They talk about what scares them, what films pinned them to their movie seats in fear, and what they think makes a horror film a classic. From tropes to clichés, from Spielberg to Romero, from “Fright Night” to “The Thing,” the discussion will inspire you to write smarter horror, or at the very least, find some scary new titles to rent this Halloween. And be sure to listen til the end for a great original song about horror movies!
