Topic: Isn't District 9 a sci fi movie?

If so, I wonder why there are so many reviews being written on our horror site...I haven't seen it and hadn't planned to because it doesn't look like my kind of sci fi.

Its scifi. It might be on here because it is gory in some parts, idk.

I wouldn't even say it was sci-fi.  it's almost historic if you replace the aliens with south african black people.  Pretty much the way apartheid went down isn't it?  fracking terrible.

its very much a comment on how our society treats anyone people who are on the "outs" with the rest...

I just saw it and it is really amazing.. Yea its sci fi but their is a lot that horror fans will get from the film as well.. Really, really good flick..

Re: Isn't District 9 a sci fi movie?

come to think of it why are Inglorious  Basterds and  Black Tornado in the reviews? not complaining just querying or have i missed something? Neither of these are horror.
