Ever since Georges Melies wrote and directed the two minute film called Le Manoir Du Diable, the film scene has been all about horror, even today. Horror films were created when trying to figure out someone’s fears and nightmares. America was a large part of the upcoming horror films in history. “America was home to the first Frankenstein and Jekyll and Hyde movie adaptations, the most influential horror films through the 1920s400 came from Germany's Expressionist movement, with films like The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and Nosferatu influencing the next generation of American cinema.”(Harris, Mark H) Soon in the 1930’s some famous classic horror films came out, such as, the Hunchback of Notre Dame and The Phantom of the Opera. By the 1970’s most of the horror films were made for scares and not so much a plot for the story. In conclusion, horror has been part of our history since 1235 when the first book came out in France. No matter what type of horror, we can’t seem to get enough of it. From religion and witchcraft based stories to gruesome and goth based stories, we have had it all in our history.
