Help me settle an argument about Jaws
My friends and I are arguing the primary genre that Jaws fits in.

I say horror and they are lambasting me.

What are other movies that the genre could be argued about? Discuss, argue, etc.

It's horror/suspense.

The first was more horror. The others were less horror. I don't know what to call them.

I read the thread title as "Jews". I'm mildly disapointed.

They are saying "Adventure" which is laughable.

Action/Adventure would be a sub-genre of Jaws, but the main genre(s) are Horror/Suspense.

The first one was horror. Jaws 3 and 4 were comedies.

It feels more like a western to me than a action/adventure movie.

The second half has an adventure feel with the whole Moby Dick thing going.

It is very Hitchcokian in the way Spielberg builds the suspense.
