Mickey Keating on Horror Screenwriting: Subverting Expectations
"True life horror happens... when there's no anticipation."
At our recent panel on Horror Screenwriting, writer/director Mickey Keating talked about subverting audience expectations within the expected formula. Mickey spoke alongside Adam Simon (writer of A Haunting in Connecticut) and Jimmy Loweree (writer-director of Absence) among others. The event was sponsored by the ScreamCraft Horror Script Contest, DreadCentral.com and the LA Film School.
"Let the audience think they're ahead of you."
