Well, I don't like the movie much, so I'm with you in that respect - but then again, a pretty large percentage of the films on TSZ and probably on this poll last year are films I don't like, so no biggie. My general issue with JP though is the same as my issue with Jaws or King Kong or Gojira - they just aren't horror movies to me. For whatever reason, giant monsters - or giant animals - just never register for me in this genre. Horror to me usually is more "human-level", whether it's psychological or physical horror. But obviously a lot of people see it differently.

Oh, I wasn't referring to the quality of the film, just the fact that it is labeled as horror.

There's an oversized and/or vicious animal niche in the horror genre, but even then I don't think Jurassic Park can be seen as a part of that (the Kaiju films are less clear I think, personally I wouldn't list them but I understand people who do). It's just that the way Jurassic Park is made has nothing at all to do with horror. Labeling with thriller as secondary or tertiary genre would be stretching it, but horror is just insane.

I get the lists are very open and aren't filtered, on the assumption that rogue elements won't make the list anyway (because they wouldn't be getting enough votes, but clearly that's not an airtight system.

I think JP used to have a horror-tag on IMDb, so people added it to their list in the past, because they simply filtered their ratings on that tag. Because people re-use old lists, it stayed on it.

I'm not an expert on the definition of horror, but I agree JP isn't one.

It's also #400 on They Shoot Zombies - though adding to the chorus, I don't really think of it as horror either.

I don't know if I consider Jurassic Park to be a full horror movie now and I wouldn't have included it if it didn't get included in horror lists so often (hence it's low-ish placement on my list), but as a kid it was definitely a horror movie. I would label it as a thriller at worst, there are 'scary' and thrilling moments that cement it in my memory over the adventurous melodrama parts.

Nobody is I think, which makes that there are a lot of grey areas. I just never considered Jurrasic Park to be in one of them.
IMDb has a dark past with genre labeling though.

Nice to see Ravenous get in there. :thumbsup:

To chime in on Jurassic Park as well: while I consider myself quite pliable on genre classifications, JP never crossed my mind as "horror" either, so while I like the film enough where I would likely include it on certain favorites lists (like maybe an "action-adventure" one), it never entered the picture when I put together my horror list. Though I can see arguments to be made in favor of including it here. There are enough intentional scares, people being terrorized by "monstrous" creatures, etc. But yeah...I still won't be putting JP in a horror favorites list anytime soon.
I thrive best hermit-style.

IMDb, ICM, TSZDT and so on should be much conservative with the horror label... but fine La piel que habito and Jurassic Park are horror movies, and Jaws isn't. I learned something new today.

Apologies for not submitting a list. Was busy finishing up with my October-related viewings. Personally I don't have a problem with 'Jurassic Park' showing up.

A lot of variety in the list so far, very cool.

Not too hot on The Devil's Rejects. Surprised that one always seems to get more love than House of 1,000 Corpses, which plays to Zombie's strengths more and doesn't come off as quite so self-indulgent. Halloween 2 is the only movie I really like from him though anyway - it's the first and last time he executed a fully mature and thoughtful vision, flawed as it may be. In my eyes, anyway.

As for the Jurassic Park talk, I personally don't see it as horror, but I have a pretty clear cut view of how I see the genre and what fits into it. Just because a movie has the occasional horror element doesn't mean it's horror, but if enough people see it differently that's fine.

JP would count as horror to me, but I admittedly have a low threshold for horror classification, particularly if films can have multiple genres. But you have dinosaur "monsters" running around killing/eating people and other creatures, including a scene where a man's severed arm pokes through a door to scare the characters. It's one scene, but there are horror elements. I also think the gore of newer films in several genres often makes them more "horrific" and unpleasant than classic horror examples (which I like better).

In another thread recently, I wrote something about how genre is a tool of convenience, one whose borders aren't worth scrutiny because they easily break down.

And yet, given that this thread has wandered into the evergreen debate on the meaning of horror, I find myself conflicted. That's because I have always struggled to understand horror, more so than any other genre. And the boundaries clearly affect the constitution of a list such as this one, especially when it's clear that said boundaries are so subjective.

When I was young, I thought it was pretty simple: horror means supernatural. Hitchcock, my childhood favorite, was a director of thrillers not horror movies. In college, I made friends with a real horror nut and he pushed me to a broader definition: horror is anything that produces a feeling of horror in the viewer. The genre, according to him, was thus based on personal reaction.To which there are some obvious rejoinders: Holocaust movies can be horrifying--is that horror? Personally, I have rarely felt more horrified than while watching The Sound of Music and Gone with the Wind, but I think most people wouldn't regard them as horror, and I guess I don't either.

So I'm going to list some genre definitions below:
- Albajos, from the nomination thread: "If people are terrified within the movie, it's horror."
- My college buddy: "If the viewer feels horrified, it's horror." (Notice the difference from the definition above)
- Caracortada from the nomination thread: "Horror is a story in which the protagonists are threatened by dangerous creatures or entities. These can be a supernatural, like werewolves, vampires, demons or witches. Or they can be animals, like sharks, dinosaurs, birds, bees or giant apes. Or they can be human: a serial killer with a knife or chainsaw."
- My film professor from grad school: "Horror deals with the dark side of mankind. Dark means unknown, forbidden, repressed. This reflects man’s relationship with nature as it goes amok, either physical nature or one’s own nature. Man’s relationship with the supernatural – god, ghosts, devils, demons. Man’s relationship with the preternatural and postnatural – before civilization and after civilization."
- My childhood definition: "Horror means supernatural"

Does any of this matter? Aren't genre boundary debates always inconclusive and wearisome?

I don't know - I just needed to air some thoughts.

The classification of certain movies is a bit of a pain in the ass isn't it. Already two movies, Jurassic Park and The Night of the Hunter, would have been in my list going by rankings alone, while a third, Irreversible, would not have made it, but were left out due to the lack of a horror tag. I did my chart by using my Flickchart rankings in the horror genre filter and while they might have been wonky in places I was generally happy with it. Jurassic Park for me personally might have made the cut, giving it a bit of a boost in the rankings but not having it in my list didn't have me complaining it wasn't tagged as such. Night of the Hunter though I don't believe needs a horror tag.

I think I commented this before (in another genre countdown), but I feel these results might be better if people didn't ask themselves "might [film] quality as [genre]..." but "would I be happy watching [film] when I feel like watching [genre]".

If I was prepping a nice Halloween marathon and ended up with Jurassic Park, Irréversible, Sombre and Little Otik, I think I'd never look at that list again.

If Irreversible is a horror movie, Jurassic Park is too.

Ah, now I know why I didn't submit a list. I never feel like watching a horror, so I have no idea how to make a horror-list.
