All of our Hitchcock goes into Mystery. As for Horror:
we buy classic horror films but skip the "kill the kids"
movies like Halloween, Scream, Texas Chainsaw....etc.
We have all the Hammer films, Jaws, Exorcist in HORROR.
Our latest subject category is AF: Action Films. I cannot tell
you how much easier the job is having these classified together.
This includes Stallone, VanDamme, Jackie Chan, James Bond, Chuck
Norris................

Just curious--
Where do you put Hitchcock and other suspense films, as opposed to the
blood&guts horror films?

To me drama implies "Terms of Endearment," but suspense doesn't often fit
into Action/Adventure either...
