How horror has changed over time The setting in which a text is produced, that is the gathering of factors outside thetext which knowingly determine its meaning (i.e. the time, place and values of the societyin which it was collected), have an important influence on the reception and symbol ofthe genre of which that text is a part. An example of such an rate is the horror genreand the way in which it has varied and taken numerous forms throughout time and indifferent cultures. In order to be defined as a text from the horror genre, certain characteristics areusually required, yet due to the constantly changing values of society throughout time,not to mention the opposite values of different cultures around the world, thesecharacteristics are not only pretty broad, but open to use and assumption as a result ofthe different time and place, as well as the values of the society in which a text isproduced.

WHAT DID LEARN FROM THESES FILMS 1950 films They used a more methods in giving their films through widescreenand big-approach methods. The early 20th century brought more signs for the horror genre including thefirst monster to appear in a full-length horror film. I learnt that over time there has been changes in horror films, there has been achange in technology so they is more of a chance you being scared now a day morethan be for.
H OW T H E F I L M S I N S P I R E D M E The films inspired me because they all meet up to expectations, allthe films I picked are horror films so they are meant to scare you andmake you feel disgusted and these films did.
