PERKEMBANGAN FILEM SERAM DI MALAYSIA: SATU TINJAUAN LITERATUR

Azlina Asaari, Jamaluddin Aziz

Abstract


Horror films are a genre film that is popular globally and is able to influence the local film industry. With its long history, the horror genre has its own aficionados. This includes Malaysian film audience. Several studies have been carried out on Malaysian horror films; nonetheless, there is a dearth of research that focuses on the development of the horror film genre academically and systematically. Much of the past research on Malaysian horror films puts emphasis on the female characters or the horror elements itself. Therefore, this paper outlines the development of the horror films in Malaysia based on its international and local roots. The implication of this outline is that it contributes to the understanding of the genre to local film scholars, filmmakers and the film industry itself, apart from contributing to the knowledge of Malaysian horror film genre.
