Since man has been able to communicate, horror has been used in attempt to scare and frighten others.,[object Object],Our own Human nature may make us desire horror novels, stories or movies because it gives us an adrenaline rush when we feel fear.,[object Object],Horror can be expressed in a manner of ways, such as novels, comics, stories, television shows, but we will focus on horror within movies.,[object Object],About Horror ,[object Object]
The 20’s and 30’s were the first decades to really show films intended to scare the audience. Generally the 20’s and 30’s saw remakes of classic stories such as Bram Stoker’s Dracula. However there were many other films made in the decades. Below are a few.,[object Object],Nosferatu ,[object Object],Frankenstein,[object Object],Bride of Frankenstein,[object Object],The Mummy,[object Object],1920’s & 1930’s,[object Object]
The 1940’s unfortunately saw a steep decline in the horror movie industry, mainly due tot eh fact of the World War II taking place at the time. However the 40’s did see a few classic horror films make it out of the decade, including:,[object Object],Wolf Man,[object Object],Cat People,[object Object],House of Dracula,[object Object],House of Frankenstein,[object Object],1940’s,[object Object]
With the war finished, people returned to the luxuries in life such as cinema. Rather than return to the classic gothic horror scene though, the 50’s brought “Mutants” on the movie scene. Many 50’s films featured gross, oversized mutants that would reek havoc across cities. Horror films of the 50’s include:,[object Object],The Wasp Woman,[object Object],The Beast from 20,000 fathoms.,[object Object],It came from Beneath the Sea,[object Object],1950’s,[object Object]
The 60’s brought about a new aspect to horror films, and it was in the 60’s the word “thriller” was first properly seen. This mainly came about from Alfred Hitchcock’s “Psycho”. Other movies made in the 1960’s are:,[object Object],The Birds,[object Object],Carnival of souls,[object Object],Blood feast,[object Object],Night of the Living Dead,[object Object],1960’s,[object Object]
