How do artists scare us? Horror filmmakers and novelists alike can accomplish fear, revulsion, and disturbance in their respective audiences. The rhetorical and stylistic strategies employed to evoke these feelings are unique to the genre. Divulging these strategies will be the major focus of this thesis, yet there will also be discussion on the social and cultural background of the Horror genre.
