There has been zombie, werewolf and vampire movies for as long as any horror fan can remember. ZOMBIES out do anything else in horror by far. There's so many types of horrors… houses that want you dead.... CARS that want you dead.. aliens... mummies... vamps, werewolves.. zombies.... killer bugs.... ROBOTS! messed up humans... ghosts... demons....
So many horror's seem to strive to do something else to define them from any other movie of its type. As the ages go by and more and more movies are made people run out of ideas...
And with horror.. comes the spoofs... some done well, some done... bad... and also.. the black comdies... NOT spoofs but a mix of horror and dark humor which is always a nice mix.
Some movies are more well known then others. You could just HEAR a tittle and know what it's about from what you've heard or you could see one by chance that you'd never heard of.
I think Horror is one of the biggest and widest liked genes of film around. Unlike comedy or action Horror has no real gender aim. It may have AGE aims such as scream seemed teeny to me and things like Skelington key needed a more mature way of thinking.
Horror comes from everywhere, England, USA, Japan, everywhere. A horror movie can be made by ones own thinking, a myth, a wives tale anything. The world has so many hidden and deep meanings that horror's find it easy to focus on fear.
There's not always action in a person's life or romance. But there is always a fear that can be harnessed. Which is why to me Horror is one of the strongest genes.
Some horror's focus on gore, violence, cheap scares and jumping out on people and some focus on getting to your mind. There are alot of corny horror's out there but there is also alot of good ones.
With alot of good horror's ... comes re-makes.. be them good or bad. Sometimes Horror runs out of new ideas.
ZOMBIE movies being a good example.
How many diffrent movies can you make about the same thing? I've seen infection, rabis, T-virus and much more. One day they might come up with something new.. but till then people keep making more of the same.. thats why alot of people think Zombies movies are corny.
I know this is a long winded post but Horror is my fav type of movie and thus I feel like I need to go overboard a little when I talk about it. The reason for this post is simple... what people's favorate movies are.... what did you find good and bad about movies?
Did any raise any questions? or stayed in your mind?
What horror's do you feel really missed the goal to scare or wow.
