this thread was inspired by JBF's thread about horror films, specifically Jacob's Ladder. i'm curious as to what other forumites consider a 'horror' film. are there specific elements involved in such a classification in your opinions? or is the term horror film just a catch-all for any movie featuring the supernatural, gore, or scares galore?
i've seen Jacob's Ladder a couple times but wouldn't consider it to be a horror film, thus my above question.
