RE: nope

If you look at it from a mile up in the atmosphere. Viewing the elements as data to be correlated, yes I take your points.

However down on the ground, in the theater, in front of the flat screen, there is a mood to it. There is this sense of the sinister. I refrain from using the word 'evil' because these replicants are not that. They simply lack human empathy. And this is likely because they resent that humans have no empathy for them.

For me the horror is in the setup. The atmosphere. The mood. The intentional cruelty. The lack of compassion.

The movie isn't a monster flick like Alien. Yet the replicants are treated as monsters to be hunted down and 'retired', dispatched, killed.

These particular replicants are wanted for their rebellious mis-deeds they had done in another star system. In the beginning it seemed like the plot would take on the form of a simple hunt. But the going gets trickier than anyone in law enforcement thought it would. We the viewer see the process through Deckard's eyes. And for him, it turns into a harrowing, horrific ordeal. I put an emphasis on horrific.
