What genre is the teen movie a sub-genre of?
The Teen genre is not exactly a sub genre of any particular genre but is a hybrid genre, which centers primarily around drama Although it would be incorrect to say that it is a sub genre of drama alone. This is because the teen genre always incorporates elements and techniques typically associated with comedy, horror, and thriller genre's. For example, The Twilight Saga is clearly derived from the drama genre. HOWEVER, it also incorporates elements of fantasy and action. Another example is in the film Ten Things I Hate About You. This film typifies the teen genre as seen by its roots in the drama genre, although it also incorporates elements of comedy in its plot also. So you see the teen genre is in actuality a hybrid of multiple genres, the most prominent being drama, however that is not to say that it is strictly a sub genre of it.
