Or how does the horror movies genre change from day to day?
For you who share the same passion about horror movies, and want to know the road which have been travelled by Horror movies, allow me to possess the honor to be your guide. Buckle up, let’s begin.
Where It All Started
The year was 19 twenty two, place: German. I can say that it was the birth of horror movies. W Murnau began the terror as well as fear through Nosferatu, nosferatuthe
story about bloodsucking vampire. It wasn’t the first vampire movie, as in 1896 Georges Melies made The Castle Du Diable, but Nosferatu was the first movie where we saw vampire ruined by sunlight. This one boasted remarkable animalistic makeup that has not already been replicated, even with modern
technology. Dozens of creature of the night movies followed next. In 1931 Universal Facilities launched 2 renowned horror movies, Dracula with Bela Lugosi and Frankenstein with Boris Karloff. Both of the movie became a classic and very successful. Boris Karloff actually became a legendary name in horror movies history. The Mummy (1932) the silent picture along with horror icon Boris Karloff within the title role, remains a classic, with memorable make-up and atmosphere. In 1935, the sequel of Frankenstein,
The Bride Associated with Frankenstein was made.This isn’t silent anymore.
Throughout 40′s the world’s upon war, and it has changed the genre. Scary was almost overlooked as patriotic movies and war has taken the place. It gradually raised again around 50′s, where comedy and musical films ruled. There were good ones took place at this time, House of Wax is among the example. 1960 was the time for Hitchcock to create a memorable movie: Psycho. Too bad, this is the only horror movie through Hitchcock, cuz then he made lots of suspence thriller goodies such as Rear Window, Vertigo,Northern by Northwest,Call M For Homicide that kinda changed the genre once again. And remember, spaghetti western Movies in the past due 60′s also experienced its moment.
This is the most creative year associated with Horror movies.Unlike before, horror films got big exploration, where so many variance of story and evil came in. Note there were lots of controversy and protest occurred here.The Exorcist (1973) for example showed disgusting scenes that never been imagined before, like the green puke towards the face transformed in order to evil. This film was controversial whenever Catholic Church protested that the devil cast-out in the movie was against the code associated with conduct. The glowing, that based on Stephen King’s novel was one of the best 1 during 70′s. Afterwards from this decade in order to 80s and Nineties, lots of movies is made based on his frightening novel such as Carrie, Christine, Cujo, It, , Cat’s Attention, Dream Catcher, are the example. Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) was a low budget film that reached an excellent result. This one introduced “the slasher movie” to the world that later on followed by Halloween (state hi to Michael Myers) , Friday the 13th, Scream in the Eighties and 90′s and so forth. Omen is a bonechillin’ movie that can still give
you nightmare even with today’s technology of making movie.Simply unforgettable. Amityville Horror, based on the true story had been the first movie that took place in the actual place. The report said a lot of bizarre as well as dreadful things were experienced by cast as well as crew in place.
