Why do horror movies cost so little to make?
Apparently horror movies cost about a million or 2 to make (or even much less) versus the $80, $100 or $150 million dollar budget that regular action, scifi even romcom movies have.
Why is this? this makes no sense to me. A horror movie demands everything a regular non-horror movie needs. Actors, cast, lighting, audio, pre production, post production, CG (sometimes) etc.
Why the $50 to $100 million dollar difference?
