On the latest “Additional Conversations” segment on “Daily Tech News Show” I discussed why horror movies are still going so strong with Robb Dunewood, Sarah Lane and Roger Chang. Tl/dr: They are cheap and have a dedicated fan base. Also, they do not need big-name stars to sell tickets, as people watch them for genre not the cast list.
There are also really interesting implications for streaming, namely that there are dedicated services serving up a whole host of horror… and they are doing really well. Such streaming services tend to be run by aficionados. This means that they have the kind of content that fans love, but which does not normally make onto other streamers. Such services include Shudder and Screambox.
