  • According to film critic William K. Everson the reason it is so unique is because it can show it’s message in very intense visual and auditory cues while other genres might use restraint and logical explanationThis gives more freedom to the director and screen writer
  • Based on what Everson has said one can conclude that the main reason people go see horror movies is so they can be scared, and this feeling is so addictive that they keep going back.
  • Archetypes are sets of primordial images that are contained in the collective unconsciousThe most powerful archetype and maybe the most powerful one at that. It contains all the behavior that is seen as unacceptable some believe that this is where we get our impulses for blood (our Mr. Hyde to our Dr. Jeckyll)
  • All movies released in this time periodUniversal was the leader of the horror wave.
  • That is the general idea one that I share as wellDuring these years three movies came out that really pushed the movement of the horror movies, including Golem (a servant who strays from his master), Nachte des Grauens (first German vampire movie, and Homunculus (first Frankenstein concept)
  • First credited horror movie Le Manoir de Diable (House of the Devil) by Georges Melies in 1898Bake Jizo, and Shinin no Sosei in 1898Which was then lost then found in 1993 where they had a rereleaseSuch as Frankenstein, Phantom of the Opera, and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.Quasimodo from the hunch back of Notre Dame.
  • Monsters such as King Kong, Godzilla, and The FlyBlue screen used to create the giants or the miniscule parts of the moviesThis was counted as a low point for horror moviesMovies like Ghost in the Invisible Bikini, and I Was a Teenage Frankenstein, were clearly for kidsAfter the crash in Roswell, New Mexico, the rumor that has been told about what really happened, it opened a whole new book in horror movie history
  • Alfred Hitchcock has given us some of the greatest horror movies, Psycho, and The BirdsAfter Psycho the slasher movies started to get popular, like Texas Chainsaw Massacre
  • In some movies the film makers will use the painful experience of child birth like in Brave New WorldThe exorcist was a serious horror movie, because there was nothing funny about it except for some ironyMade in 1973 was not allowed to be viewed in UK until 1999Was all about a girl who is possessed was given an X ratingCarrie is a telekinetic girl who wants to fit in then after getting crowned prom queen a bucket of pigs blood is dumped on her head, all the people in the movie end up dead
  • Death can be caused by many things some we never see like viruses in the movie Quarantine a mutated rabies virus starts affecting humans and the survivors are forced to fend for themselves.And in Final Destination death is caused by Death, or the grim reaper as some people call him, it is about kids who are trying to cheat death
  • The one movie that scared the most people when they were young made them not want to go in the water.Not the supernatural the things that are in your back yard
  • And in many movies they have been exploited to reach the depths of our fears
  • Blair Witch Project, Quarantine, Paranormal Activity,
  • The fact that not everything is right in front of you, you have to think about what is going on and who will die.And in suspense the focus is more on the plot than anything else, not violence, not gore.
  • Gore is a movie with a plot that could be better, but the movie focuses mainly on the blood.
  • Freddy was in your dreams and he was killing you and there was no way you could tell when he would strikeKing Kong we have thought of ourselves as the biggest and most powerful creaturesChucky we usually see toys as a fun thing but Chucky made us fear them
  • Hannibal Made us see the dark side of human nature, and see serial killers for what they are, monstersJason Made us see mental illness differently, as something that made people emotionless and conscious lessAlien Made us fear the unknown
  • Completely changed what people saw as scary, and any one who tried to sell a horror movie got rebuffedAt one point there was even a call to ban horror movies in the name of world peaceMade it so that no matter what the film makers did there was no way any one person could be scarier
  • Halloween, Psycho
  • People feel like they are setting themselves down when watching a horror movieFilms come and go many of which are never heard about again, but in one category many films have seen immortality Horror, why because fear lives forever1931 Oscar goes to Cimarron. Same year Frankenstein came out1933 Oscar goes to Cavalcade Same year King Kong came outAcademy awards back then out of all of the great actors and actresses one got the academy award Fredrick March, for playing the Duel titled role of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and he had to share it with Wallace Beery for the champ
  • Focused on the devil and the doppelganger where a man sells his reflection to the devil and dies to get it back lead actor Paul WegnerWhile filming Paul heard the legend of the golem and turned it into a movie which he made many ofStory of a hypnotist and his sleeping aid that at night is called to kill peopleThe story of Dracula made in Germany
  • American Horror is now more recognized in society today
  • These movies have defiantly left their mark on horror films of today and have been subject to many remakes in past and in the present
  • Surely not as known as Frankenstein, or Dracula but for the time period they were known enough to get the actors and actresses names out there, could not show monsters like in the movie cat people the monster is never seen.
  • No big movies that every one was talking aboutDirector Roman Polanski took a well known book and turned it in to a movieA lot of the movies were about the devil at this time
