So you've heard of romcoms, right? Romantic comedies. A funny movie about love and relationships. Well a "romcom" is a portmanteau - or a blend of two or more words into one new word (i.e. smoke + fog = smog). And it's really the only movie genre portmanteau in existence. Until now...
Now, there are 3 more genre-crossing movie categories: mysteramas, dramcoms, and horredies. And here are some examples of each:
- Mysteramas: Ides of March, Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
- Dramcoms: Sunshine Cleaning, Patch Adams, Raising Arizona
- Horredies: Zombieland, Tucker & Dale vs Evil, Shaun of the Dead
Can you think of any others?
