 Horror film is a genre that aims to create a sense of fear, panic, alarm, and dread
for the audience.These films are often unsettling and rely on scaring the
audience through a portrayal of their worst fears and nightmares. Horror films
usually center on the arrival of an evil force, person, or event. Many Horror films
include mythical creatures such as ghosts, vampires, and zombies.Traditionally,
Horror films incorporate a large amount of violence and gore into the plot.
Though it has its own style, Horror film often overlaps into Fantasy,Thriller, and
Science-Fiction genres. In this powerpoint I will take you through a time line of
horror films throughout the years.
 Body horror
 Comedy
 Gothic
 Psychological
 Sci-Fi
 Slasher
 Supernatural
 Zombie
 Action
In 1896 the first horror movie was made, it was a 3 minute long french film called “The house
of the devil”. It was created by George Mêlé and the 3 minute long film was completely
silent, it included clever camera tricks, bats, skeletons and a lot of stabbing.The film had
only 2 cast members, one of which was George Mele himself! The creation of this film was
due to the vast amounts of horror and gothic literature which was very popular during this
era. After around the 1900’s silent films became scarce as audio technologies modernised.
This time period may be known as the silent era as all of the following films made
during this time had no sound.
 1896:The house of the Devil
 1910: Frankenstien
 1913:The Student of Prague
 1920: Cabinet of DR.Caligari
 1920: Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
 1922: Haxan
 1922: Nosfertu
 1923:The Hunchback of Notre Dame
 1924:The Hands of Orlac
 1924: Waxworks
 1925:The monster
 1925:The phantom of the opera
 1926: Faust
 1927:The cat and the canary
 1930: Dracula
 1951:The thing from another world
 1952: My son the vampire
 1953:The maze
 1954: Godzilla
 1955:Tarantula!
 1956: X the unknown
 1957: From hell it came
 1958:The revenge of Frankenstein
 1959:The mummy
The 1950s was the era of change, media technologies had developed and become
similar to the technologies we have now in modern day. Due to the new
development in audio, many films were recreated with sound and to a higher quality.
Many of these iconic films are still being adapted to this day.
Psycho was the breakthrough in modern day horror films.The release of Psycho by Alfred
Hitchcock in the 1960s is arguably one of the best horror films, if not the most famous of
all time.This slasher horror reached controversial levels of violence, many people saw the
films as too graphic however the film was far too popular as it was the first of its kind.
• 1960: Psycho
• 1961:The innocents
• 1962: PeepingTom
• 1963:The birds
• 1964: Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte
• 1965: Repulsion
• 1966: Seconds
• 1967: Wait until dark
• 1968: Night of the living dead
• 1969: Spirits of the dead
By the 1970’s horrors were becoming more of a norm and audiences enjoyed
watching them rather than finding them controversial.The themes of sex, war,
religion and violence were more common in the 70’s as zombie and cannibal movies
were most popular. Due to the unique and shocking films produced, this decade is
seen have produced some of the highest rated horror movies of all time.
 1971:The devils
 1972:The last house on the left
 1973:The exorsist
 1974:TheTexas Chainsaw Massacre
 1975: Jaws
 1976: Carrie
 1977:The deep
 1978: Halloween
 1979: Alien
Popular genres during the 1980’s began with slasher films in the early decade,
through to comic genres as we get to the 90’s. Stalker thrillers were also more
common throughout the 80’s. As horror was so popular film producers would need
to find ways to make their films stand out, this was why the horror genre began to
dig deeper into different sub categories.
 1980:The Shining
 1981: Halloween 2
 1982: Poltergeist
 1983:The evil dead
 1984: A Nightmare on Elm Street
 1985:Teen wolf
 1986: Aliens
 1987:The lost boys
 1988: Beetlejuice
 1989: Pet semetry
As horror had become so popular, studios began funding large scale horror projects,
this lead to some of the biggest horror blockbuster successes.A wider target
audience was found during this era which made for more money for distributors.
 1990: IT
 1991: Silence ofThe Lambs
 1992: Buffy the vampire slayer
 1993: Leprechaun
 1994:The crow
 1995: Species
 1996:The craft
 1997:The devils advocate
 1998: Godzilla
 1999:The sixth sense
Remakes of iconic horror films are the prominent theme of modern day horror films, usually adapted
with a modern twist.This incorporates old and new audiences for a higher box office revenue.The
sub-genre of psychological horrors are mainly used with modern films, getting inside the audiences’
head and leaving an impression well after audiences leave the cinema.
 2001: Hannibal
 2002:The ring
 2003: underworld
 2004: saw
 2005: Constantine
 2006: silent hill
 2007: pans labyrinth
 2008: cloverfield
 2009: orphan
 2010: the lovely bones
 2011: insidious
 2012:The cabin in the woods
 2013: would you rather
 2014:The babadook
 2015: Unfriended
 2016:The boy
In modern day media, supernatural themes are very popular, focusing on
psychological aspects rather than gore and violence, like you would find in slasher
movies.TV shows are also catching onto this craze, aiming towards young teens.
 1962: Burn witch, burn
 1968: Rosemarys baby
 1971:The blood on satans claw
 1977: Suspiria
 1991: Warlock
 1996:The Craft
 2006:The woods
 2010: Black death
 2012:The lords of salem
 2013: American Horror Story: Coven
