A movie which attempts to scare the audience. Often, it will revolve around some sort of unnatural monster or force, but it can also be about a human monster, like a serial killer ("Halloween"), or a natural force, like a wild animal ("Jaws"). Horror movies can crossover into other genres of film, like comedy ("Scream"), film noir ("Angel Heart"), or science fiction ("Alien"). They can be cheap ("Night of the Living Dead") or expensive ("The Silence of the Lambs"). They can be gory ("Evil Dead 2") or subtle (the original version of "The Haunting"). They can be really good, or, like far too many, they can be really, really bad.

Jeez, that's all I can think to write. Go see some horror movies. Everything makes more sense that way.
