Modern horror movies, and the rise of negative space

20 September 2016 2:34 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With horror films such as Blair Witch, It Follows and Sinister, why it's sometimes what you don't see that matters...

This article contains spoilers for It Follows, Sinister, Ringu, the original Blair Witch Project and – as always – Fight Club.

It’s everywhere, it’s terrifying and it’s preying on our fragile psyches. No, not The X Factor, but the other monster, the one we might like to call ‘absolutely nothing at all, really’. It’s the sky, the darkness, the woods or just the background in the frame surrounding the people we see in our television shows and movies. It’s where the threat is, or might be – the unknown in which something could suddenly appear at any moment.

Negative space can be an essential element of any visual composition, but it’s horror movies that often rely on what you don’t see to make a story work. »
