How Horror Movies Have Gotten Scarier | Vanity Fair

I absolutely agree with horror being a personable emotion before it was classified into a genre and separated into various sub-genres. Horror movies (and perhaps books and video games) have always been evolving since mankind has gathered together to tell stories depending on what the audience members consider scary, or creepy, and what is current (though old Gothic/slow-burn horror might be what we turn back to for how the current horror genre progresses, though that’s just my personal theory depending on whether slow-burn may drag too long in movies and more action-y/jumpscare movies become relevant again).

George A Romero changed horror forever with Night of the Living Dead. A true genius.

Why would you just completely skip over the decade of the 80’s?! The Shining, The Thing, An American Werewolf in London, A Nightmare of Elm Street, Hellraiser, The Lost Boys. I think this decade deserved at least a 30 second mention in your video.

Silence of the Lambs is not and I repeat, is not a Horror film. IMDb classifies the movie in the following genres: Crime - Drama - Thriller. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0102926/ Do better VF in your research.

POV horror has some cool indie films. Indie films still have that horror feel.

What a lame and lazy effort. Mostly excludes European films. Probably half of the movies mentioned aren’t even horror films but thrillers.

Man, modern day horror films are really terrible. Enough of the jumpscares. They're not scary. That's why I don't understand why people like the new It. It just wasn't scary

Oh god, I hope 'get out' isn't a sign of things to come, it's truly truly bloody terrible! It's a comedy and nothing more. Though they skipped things like Incidióus and the conjuring, which were a move away to a new type of horror.

Even SEVEN which is way scarier than Silence of The Lambs isn't considered horror, dunno why they keep trying to push this idea that SOTL is horror+Camilla Nohara

Some could argue that it's getting scarier by them getting better at effects, even if practical effects like The Thing is still holding up well
