Horror films like to play off the audiences primal fears and audiences seem to love being scared. The genre oft deals with macabre, supernatural, fantasy and thriller themes. We're going to throw in comedy, as many films, dating back to the "Abbott and Costello Meet ..." series have mixed the two genres together.
Horror films know no boundaries, language or era. They've been with us since the earliest days of film-making and great horror films have been made in countries like Germany and Japan. Audiences, it seems, like to be frightened.
Some horror films are very scary, some are funny, while others simply gory and others merely stupid. And what was once scary 90 years ago, might not even raise an eyebrow now.
