Cinema is still a massive industry, and nothing shows this more than the recent box office success of the new blockbuster TOP GUN: MAVERICK. People across the globe are enjoying heading back to movie theatres. And streaming services are making massive movies themselves, that come straight to our homes. Horror works great on both!

Especially at Halloween, nothing excites filmgoers more than a spine-chilling horror movie – both the critical success of SISSY and the commercial success of SMILE this year show that the genre is flourishing and dynamic. Films like A QUIET PLACE and US have shown that horror can consistently smash the box office no matter what their budget.

So before the most terrifying night of the year is out, fix up that horror script and enter!
