From time to time, we see numerous horror movies come and go. Spooky, haunted houses, serial killers, slashers, maniacs, mentals, satanic, and lots of others are pictured within the movie. tons of sub-genres, tons of remakes, tons of variations, twist, and everyone which will easily be found through the ages. Yeah, it's all true. But have we ever thought where it all came from?
Or how does the horror movies genre change from time to time?
For you who share an equivalent passion for horror movies, and need to understand the road that is traveled by Horror movies, allow me to possess the respect to be your guide. Buckle up, here we go.
Where It All Began
The year was 1922, place: German. I can say that it had been the birth of horror movies. W Murnau started the fear and fear through Nosferatu, a nosferatu
story about a bloodsucking vampire. It wasn't the primary vampire movie, as in 1896 Georges Melies made Le Castle Du Diable, but Nosferatu was the primary movie where we saw vampire destroyed by sunlight. This one boasted remarkable animalistic makeup that has not been replicated, even with modern
technology. Dozens of vampire movies followed then. In 1931 Universal Studio launched 2 legendary horror movies, Dracula with Lugosi and Frankenstein with Karloff. Both of the movies became classic and really successful. Karloff even became a legendary name in horror movies' history. the mother (1932) a silent movie with horror icon Karloff within the name part, remains a classic, with unforgettable make-up and atmosphere. In 1935, the sequel of Frankenstein,
The Bride Of Frankenstein was made. This isn't silent anymore.
During 40's the world's on war, and it's changed the genre. Horror was almost forgotten as patriotic movies and war has taken the place. It slowly raised again around the '50s, where comedy and musical movies ruled. there have been good ones happened at this point, House of Wax is one among the instance. 1960 was the time for Hitchcock to form a memorable movie: Psycho. Too bad, this is often the sole horror movie by Hitchcock, cuz then he made many suspense thriller goodies like a car window, Vertigo, North by Northwest, Dial M For Murder that kinda changed the genre again. And remember, spaghetti Western Movies within the late 60's also had its moment.
This is the foremost creative year of Horror movies. Unlike before, horror movies got big exploration, where numerous variations of story and evil came in. Note there have been many controversies and protests happened here. The Exorcist (1973) for instance showed disgusting scenes that never been imagined before, just like the green puke to the face transformed to evil. This movie was controversial when the Catholic Church protested that the demon cast-out within the movie was against the code of conduct. The shining, that supported Stephen King's novel was one among the simplest ones during the '70s. afterward from this decade to the 80s and 90s, many movies were made supported his scary novel like Carrie, Christine, Cujo, It, Cat's Eye, Dream Catcher, is the instance. Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) was a coffee budget movie that reached an excellent result. This one introduced "the slasher movie" to the planet that later followed by Halloween (say hi to Michael Myers), Friday the 13th, Scream within the '80s and 90's then on. Omen may be a bone-chilling' movie which will still give
you a nightmare even with today's technology of creating a movie. Simply unforgettable. Amityville Horror supported truth story was the primary movie that happened within the actual location. The report said tons of bizarre and dreadful things were experienced by cast and crew in location.
This is the last decade of madness. All gory stuff was shown sadistically for viewing. cut off body parts were seen everywhere. Nightmare on Elm Street that launched Freddy Krueger to horror hall of fame, and Jason Voorhees slashing games on Friday the 13th are one among the instance. These two had a number of their sequels during the 80s, alongside 3 of Halloweens. And remember how Italian horror movies that have a really sick super bloody vision? Count Romero and Argento for this category. this is often also the age where horror expanded to tv.
A funny thing happened in the 90s. there is a tendency of self-defense and self-actualization by horror characters on terror they need to be made to people. for instance Ghost, Bram Stocker's Dracula that told the story about Count
Dracula's painful like to Mina, or Interview With Vampires that unlocked the mystery of vampire lives. Scream started a replacement genre, teen horror movies, slashing-serial-killer-who-did-it, which soon followed by I do know What you probably did Last Summer, Urban Legend, and a few more. A note in 1999, an independent movie Blair Witch Project became an enormous phenomenon,using a documentation technique to offer us fear, tense and mental disorder. This one inspired another movie like St.Francisville Experiment, The Lamarie Project, and
tv series Freaky Links.
Still too early may be to speak about horror movies in the 2000s, but seems like Hollywood has run out of ideas. they're trying to widen up their view to ascertain new ideas outside which will give new vision on the term of horror. The Ring, remake from Japanese movies was their first success. Followed by the attention, and a few other remakes from Asian cinemas.
This decade seems to be led by Japan and Korea, by making numerous horror movies with a lack of effects or gory blood but still successfully tortured our feeling. they do not accompany the Hollywood pattern, they only dig everything else that hasn't been touched yet. Thailand is additionally emerging as an honest horror maker. Indonesian movies too, with an amusing number of horror movies per annum. We also mark the last decade 2000 for the last decade of sequels and remakes too, like Halloween H2O, Freddy vs Jason, modern version of Bram Stocker's Dracula, Dracula 2001,
Halloween Resurrection, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, House of The Dead, The Amityville Horror then on.
While the trouble to mix some genres and produce something new has still been happening. Saw, for instance, combine the psycho-thriller ala Hitchcock with slasher, sadistic, bloody, and graphic scenes.
My prediction? I feel this decade will still do so. Hopefully, within the next decade, we'll see some new approach, style, and thanks to present horror movies. Let's wait and see where the horror movies continue their path.
