Neither, it's a satirical, ultra-black comedy drama. And entirely wonderful.

Neither, but it is very thematically similar to Get Out, whilst being a much better film.

 

And I love Get Out.

Genre films seldom win, apart from musicals. No westerns before Unforgiven (Dances with Wolves if you count is as a western), comedies only as a couple of classic romcoms.

That beat Goodfellas to the Best Picture the wanker.

I can't remember the last horror movie that won best film at the Oscars. It wouldn't surprise me if it had never happened.

Silence Of The Lambs

Just checked and seems you are correct, Shooter. I had a thought that The Exorcist had won but a little known film called The Godfather trumped it in 1973

That's the standout one but it seems that if Silence of the Lambs is classified as horror, as cloggypop says that could one of the rare occurences.

I for one am shocked.

The Silence of the Lambs is hardly a horror. It's more of a thriller or even dark crime drama.

Is Silence of the Lambs considered a horror movie? Its both. 

 

The Silence of the Lambs is a horror film, but it's also a thriller. The more we stop paying attention to genre labels, the more we can simply accept that a film is good, regardless of the label attached to it. But the Academy voters, who are predominately white men with a median age of 63, are stuck in their ways.

 

The Silence of the Lambs is a 1991 American psychological horrorfilm directed by Jonathan Demme from a screenplay written by Ted Tally, adapted from Thomas Harris's 1988 novel of the same name.

 
Genre: Psychological thriller, Horror

I think IMDB lists it as a thriller and a drama. I wouldn't describe it as a horror film, certainly not first or second. It's probably why it managed to win the Oscars.
