Video: A short “History of Horror” in film puts fear in perspective


LatinaLista — Horror films are a genre of film that can trace its popularity back to our ancestors as they gathered around a flickering campfire sharing stories to scare one another.

However, the genre has evolved over time not only reflecting elements of the era in which it was written but humankind’s own evolution in the appreciation and expectation of the literature.

The study of horror is an interesting journey, especially when it’s done in a multimedia presentation as presented in the featured video. The online film academy, Filmmaker IQ, presents an entertaining look at The History of Horror while educating viewers as to why everyone likes a good scare.
