    Have Horror films moved from their gory days to simple thrillers?

    Analyse the history of horror films from their origin to present day. Focus on important gory films such as Carrie, Saw, and Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Discuss how horror films have gotten away from their once blood filled shots to now multiple pop up scares. Also discuss the incorporation of social media in horror films that are seen today.

    • What about older horror films like Hitchcock? Is this topic looking to examine a general history of the Horror genre? What other trends can be seen? – Kevin 4 years ago

    • I have actually come across a lot of contemporary gore films. The trouble is, I think, that gory films have the tendency to be B-listed and now, since filmmaking is so accessible, the over saturation of the film industry has drowned them out. The simple point is that thrillers are more broadly marketable and so they get the bigger budgets and far more attention. – mkparker 4 years ago

    • I personally have to agree with this statement. I have seen very many many horror films, and classic films such as Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Saw are just so original. Even though they released years ago, they are still popular and relevant in the horror genre. I have noticed the different tactics that producers and cinematographers use to scare now versus in older movies. Re-makes of movies are not always successful. – Marina 4 years ago

    • I actually think the incorporation of social media in today's horror films is a good topic on its own. Or the writer could take a look at the role of communication technology in horror films in general. (Consider, for example, the telephone in films like "Scream" and "When a Stranger Calls," or the camera in films like "Insidious" and "Shutter.") – OBri 4 years ago

    Advertising itself is everywhere and there is no way to get away from it. Since advertising has made itself an aspect of the Superbowl, has it become the ‘norm’ of what’s expected when watching the Superbowl? There are many people who actually look forward to seeing what advertising companies have put together for that year.

    It will take some time before television is completely obsolete, though I would love to see how television will handle the competition. This reminds me of how television stole some of the glory from film.

    Wonderful analysis of Nightcrawler, though I do not believe that Gyllenhaal’s character’s isolation is a commentary or has any relation to the effects that social media has on people today.
