There is a major desire for a darker tone in the fourth installment.

Pop Culture & Art May 25, 2024

In a surprising turn of events, there is a significant interest in a genre shift in the upcoming installment of the Jurassic World franchise. 

The debate arises from a compelling argument presented by Screen Rant, suggesting that Jurassic World 4 should lean more towards horror than its traditional action-packed approach.

Citing evidence from the previous films and analyzing the current landscape of the franchise, the analysis presents a compelling case for embracing the horror elements inherent in the premise of genetically engineered dinosaurs roaming free. 

Drawing parallels to classic horror tropes and citing the success of recent horror-tinged blockbusters, such as ‘A Quiet Place’ and ‘The Conjuring’ series, the argument suggests that embracing the horror genre could breathe new life into the ‘Jurassic World’ saga.

Fans have taken to social media to express their support for the proposed shift, eager to see a darker, more suspenseful take on the beloved franchise. 

However, others remain skeptical, questioning whether the transition to horror would alienate the franchise's core audience accustomed to high-octane action sequences.

As speculation swirls around the direction of Jurassic World 4, one thing is certain: the debate over whether the next installment should embrace horror will continue to divide fans until the film's release. 

Only time will tell if the filmmakers heed the call for a more terrifying ‘Jurassic World’ experience.
