So here’s the list of Genre’s as Script Frenzy presents them. (see below for what I consider a more accurate genre list in general). Based on the knowledge that I’m going to be attempting to write a film I can produce myself, I’m going to cut some of these genres out. Thus a new list of 7 Genre’s remains. (and yes I’m calling it 7 even though script frenzy groups some of them they really are separate.)
This is a list of some of my favorite movies in the genre’s I’m putting to the vote.
Action/Adventure – Pan’s Labrynth, the Golden Compass , Raiders of the Lost arc
Comedy - Animal House, Ghost Busters,
Drama - Fight Club,
Horror – Cloverfield, Jesus Christ Vampier Hunter, HellRaiser
Science Fiction/Fanasty – Serenity, Constantine, Lord of the Rings
You’ll actually notice that often there’s some cross over in genre. Ghostbusters could easily be called a Sci-Fi movie. Fight Club, though dark, could easily be called a Comedy. And so on. So vote till your heart is content.
