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.

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.
