From suspenseful scares to urban legends and classic movie monsters, horror stories rely on the psychology of fear to thrill and chill us with the things that we fear most. In this panel, the genre’s leading writers from both film and television will sit down to discuss the scripts behind the scares and their advice for writing a horror film that kills.

Must have an AFF Producers, Conference, Weekend, or Lone Star Badge for entry.
