  27. 27. The 2000’s <ul><li>The 2000’s saw the remakes of classic horror films and the creation of a new form of horror films. Horror films that contained tense scenes and big bus scenes. Films in this time commonly featured Teenagers as the victims and spawned many sequels, like the ‘Final Destination’ franchise. Also i discovered that people of this time enjoy horror films where in which there is a supernatural evil, something they can not see. </li></ul><ul><li>As time went on people discovered that lifelike movies were the scariest as they create a feeling that what is happening in the movie, could happen to the them. </li></ul>
  28. 28. My response <ul><li>Throughout my research of horror films i have realised that they have changed more than any other genre of films. The films that scared and gripped people in the past sightly startle the people of the present. I believe Horror fans nowadays look for a film that makes them think weather it could happen to them. A film that builds tension throughout and can create a life like feel. </li></ul><ul><li>Because of my research i have decided that my 2 minute film i will make, should include lifelike scenes that create a tense and dramatic atmosphere and possibly include an evil the viewer cannot initially see. </li></ul>
  29. 29. How its changed <ul><li>Horror has changed throughout the years as cultures change. From Horror’s earliest times it was a less thought of genre with ghosts and gargoyles being the common characters. Now Horror is one of the most popular genres of film, making millions of dollars for each movie; and more importantly, it continues to scare us half to death... </li></ul>
