Matthew Rorie Posted April 29, 2009 Share Posted April 29, 2009 Aliens is more of the 'Terror' side than horror according to James Cameron in the bonus interview. Knowing he is unable to replicate the horror moments in Aliens, he simply focus the pacing more on terror. I think we are getting into technicalities. "Terror" rather than "horror" is good enough for me! Let's get some Aliens! Orson Scott Card had a good essay about the difference between dread (anticipation), horror (primal fear), and terror (shock at something that just happened). Interesting read if you can find it.
