The horror movie has long been a staple of the cinema. Some of the earliest movies were horror movies. They are still very popular today, with a company like Shudder turning out 200–300 a month, all of great quality and original scripting.

Next from the archives that we are cleaning out is How to Make a Fast & Furious Movie, so stay tuned.
