In my gut the difference between horror and scifi is the attitude to the unknown; in a scifi film the person walks slowly up to the iridescent glob on the floor and we lean forwards, curious to see what happens, in a horror film we lean back, bracing ourselves for the possible horrible consequences.
Also, I’m wondering if there is a horror equivalent to the non-shock scifi story; like those stories (usually short ones) where they just live in some weird world and we get used to it via their experience. Is that even possible?
