  1. :

    Taking seriously a much-maligned genre, Devin Watson doesn’t just teach the reader, he collaborates with the reader. He walks us through every step of what makes great horror, from its cinematic history to the nature of the beast, and he does so in such an engaging, conversational style that it’s easy to forget he also knows far too many ways to kill a man.

    I’ve always recommended to my film students that the horror genre is one of the best for making a calling card feature film. Devin Watson’s Horror Screenwriting provides the structure, blueprint, tricks, and tips that will make that starter feature ignite on the screen!
