Horror movies are often seen as the unfortunate cousin of the film medium: while everyone flocks to see the blockbusters and the dramas get all the awards and acclaim, horror movies are generally seen as fodder, stuff for horny or adrenaline-fuelled teens to watch on a Friday night. However, they’ve survived and evolved from the early black-and-white monster movies into a genuine art form – concerned with the art of getting truly scared.
More than that, horror films represent the lexicon and the zeitgeist of our times, moving and evolving with each generation; unfortunately it seems that horror’s hit a bit of a low patch in recent years, recycling the same soulless trash, slapping on new names and 3D and releasing it out into the cinemas. That isn’t cool and it’s not a lot of fun to watch either to be honest.
