To suit your needs who talk about the same passion about horror movies, and want to know the highway which may have been travelled by Horror movies, allow me personally to have the prize to be your guide. Buckle up, here we go. 

Where It Most Began

The entire year was 1922, place: German. I can say that it was your birth of horror videos. W Murnau started the terror and fear through Nosferatu, nosferatuthe
story about bloodsucking vampire. It has not been the first vampire movie, just as 1896 Georges Melies made Le Castle Ni Diable, but Nosferatu was the first movie where we saw vampire ruined by sunlight. This one boasted exceptional animalistic cosmetic that has not recently been replicated, even with modern
technology. Many vampire films followed from then on. In 1931 Universal Studio launched 2 legendary horror movies, Dracula with Bela Lugosi and Frankenstein with Boris Karloff. Both of the movie became a classic and very successful. Boris Karloff even became a renowned name in horror films history. The Mummy (1932) a silent picture with horror icon Boris Karloff in the title role, remains a classic, with unforgettable make-up and atmosphere. In 1935, the follow up of Frankenstein,
The New bride Of Frankenstein was made. This isn’t silent any more.


During 40’s the world’s on war, and it has changed the genre. Horror was almost forgotten as patriotic videos and war has considered the location. It slowly increased again around 50’s, where comedy and musical films ruled. There were good ones came about at this time, House of Feel is one of the example. 1960 was the moment for Hitchcock to make a memorable movie: Psychotic. Too bad, this is the only horror movie by Hitchcock, cuz then he made lots of suspence thriller goodies like Rear Window, Vertigo, North by Northwest, Dial Meters For Murder that somewhat changed the genre again. And remember, spaghetti traditional western Movies in the later 60’s also had their moment.

The 70’s

This kind of is the most creative year of Horror films. Unlike before, horror videos got big exploration, where so many variation of story and evil came up in. Note there were lots of controversy and protest happened here. The Exorcist (1973) for example showed disgusting scenes that never been imagined before, like the green puke to the face altered to evil. This movie was controversial when Catholic Church protested that the demon cast-out in the movie was against the code of conduct. The shining, that depending on Sophie King’s novel was among the finest one during 70’s. After on from this 10 years to 80s and 90s, lots of movies was made based on his scary novel such as Carrie, Christine, Cujo, This,, Cat’s Eye, Dream Baseball catchers, are the example. Arizona Chainsaw Massacre (1974) was a low quality movie that reached a great result. This one launched “the slasher movie” to the world that later and then Halloween (say hi there to Michael Myers), Fri the 13th, Scream in the 80’s and 90’s etc. Omen is a bonechillin’ movie that can still give
you problem even with technology improvements of making movie. Merely unforgettable. Amityville Horror, established on the real story was the first movie that took place in the actual location. The statement said a lot of bizarre and dreadful things were experienced by players and crew in location.
