With Halloween just around the corner, I started to think about the great horror films that are broadcast around this time of year, from zombie comedies such as ‘Shaun of the dead’ and ‘Cockneys versus Zombies’ (one of my favourites) to the more cult horror classics such as ‘The Evil Dead’ and ‘The Exorcist’.
Horror films are not for everyone, but I think they are one of the cleverest genres of films; it takes something special to scare an audience and some amazing legendary directors have come from horror; Kubrick, Hitchcock and George Romero to name a few.
If the director is talented, then horror movies can be created on a shoe string budget however some of the best CGI and pioneering special effects started in horror. Everyone agrees that the effects on Terminator and Jurassic Park are amazing but Stan Winston who worked on these films began his career working on films like Friday The 13th Part III and The Thing.
Finally and I think most importantly, horror movies not only scare us but entertain us. Some amazing horror films do not take themselves too seriously, making them fun, screaming one minute, laughing the next.
So whether you like Comedy,Teen, Monster, Slasher, Supernatural or Zombie horrors, this compilation video has something for you. Enjoy watching
