SciFiHybridity

The definition of science fiction, perhaps more than other genres, involves a high degree of subjective reading. The question: “What is SciFi?” begs a multitude of answers.  SciFi purists might argue that Alien and The Fly are horror films, more specifically monster movies, or hybrid narratives, at best, but not strictly science fiction. Yet, I posit horror and science fiction have been inextricably linked since at least the classic period. Furthermore, I would argue that SciFi has always assumed a hybridized stance.
