Just same plot as horror movies back in the 90th. Teenagers, hotel, ghosts, some weird happenings and very hammy acting. Sometimes the epic music don't fit to the scenes.

When this fails, she turns to a psychiatrist, played by Otto Kruger. The Countess kidnaps Janet and takes her to Transylvania, leading to a battle between Dr.
Garth and the Countess. While not as successful as the original upon its release, the film was generally well-reviewed. In the intervening decades, criticism has been deeply divided.
Contemporary critics and scholars have noted the film's strong lesbian overtones, which Universal acknowledged from the start of production and exploited in some early advertising.
Universal would completed their initial Dracula trilogy seven years later with Son of Dracula. In , Universal Pictures only released one film in the series.
The film was Night Key , a science fiction crime thriller starring Boris Karloff. In Night Key , Karloff plays an elderly inventor of a burglar alarm who attempts to get back at the man who stole the profits to his invention.
Later, his device is then subverted by gangsters who threatens him and use his own device to facilitate burglaries. Letterboxd users call the film "a delightfully corny, old-fashioned thriller".
In , Universal Pictures did not release any film related to horror, thriller, or science fiction.
Instead, they made re-releases of their previous Dracula and Frankenstein films. It was only in January , a full year and a half after the release of Night Key that the studio continued putting out original horror movies.
It stars Bela Lugosi as a mad scientist who attempts to rule the world by creating various elaborate inventions. In a dramatic fashion, foreign agents and G-Men government men try to seize the inventions for themselves.
A minute feature film version of the film, cut down from the serial's original minutes, was released for television ten years later. The Phantom Creeps was Universal Pictures' th serial and 44th to have sound.
The innovation of the scrolling text version of the synopsis at the beginning of each chapter was used for the Star Wars films as the "Star Wars opening crawl".
On 13 January , Universal Pictures released Son of Frankenstein , the third entry in the studio's Frankenstein series and the last to feature Boris Karloff as the Monster.
It is also the first to feature Bela Lugosi as Ygor. Son of Frankenstein was a reaction to the popular re-releases of Dracula and Frankenstein as double-features in In the film, one of the sons of Frankenstein finds his father's monster in a coma and revives him, only to find out he is controlled by Ygor who is bent on revenge.
Universal's declining horror output was revitalized with the enormously successful Son of Frankenstein , in which the studio cast both stars Lugosi and Karloff again for the fourth time.
In November , Universal Pictures released their last horror film of the s with the historical and quasi-horror film, Tower of London.
Vincent Price , in only his third film, appears as George, Duke of Clarence. Tower of London is based on the traditional depiction of Richard rising to become King of England in by eliminating everyone ahead of him.
Each time Richard accomplishes a murder, he removes one figurine from a dollhouse resembling a throne room. Once he has completed his task, he now needs to defeat the exiled Henry Tudor to retain the throne.
Other studios followed Universal's lead. MGM 's controversial Freaks frightened audiences at the time, featuring characters played by people who had real deformities,.
The studio even disowned the film, and it remained banned in the United Kingdom, for 30 years. Hyde is remembered for its innovative use of photographic filters to create Jekyll's transformation before the camera.
With the progression of the genre, actors like Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi were beginning to build entire careers in horror.
Early in the decade also, Danish director Carl Theodor Dreyer created the horror fantasy film Vampyr based on elements from J.
The German-produced sound film tells the story of Allan Gray, a student of the occult who enters a village under the curse of a vampire.
According to the book Movies You Must See Before You Die , Vampyr' s "greatness derives partly from Dreyer's handling of the vampire theme in terms of sexuality and eroticism, and partly from its highly distinctive, dreamy look.
Despite the success of The Wolf Man , by the s, Universal's monster movie formula was growing stale, as evidenced by desperate sequels and ensemble films with multiple monsters.
Eventually, the studio resorted to comedy-horror pairings, like Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein , which met with some success. In the year , Universal Pictures released three movies.
In January, the Vincent Price -starring The Invisible Man Returns premieres in theaters to commercial success despite its production being plagued with problems.
In September, The Mummy's Hand was released. Although it is sometimes claimed by fans as a sequel or follow-up to The Mummy , it does not continue the film's storyline, or feature any of the same characters.
At the film's release, film critic Bosley Crowther wrote for The New York Times , "It's the usual mumbo-jumbo of secret tombs in crumbling temples and salacious old high priests guarding them against the incursions of an archaeological expedition".
In December, The Invisible Woman was released. It is the third film in the Invisible Man film series. This film was more of a screwball comedy than other films in the series thus is considered a comedy more than a horror film.
The film stars Virginia Bruce in the lead role and the aging John Barrymore in a supporting role.
Reviews from critics were mixed. The propaganda war-horror Invisible Agent , which featured a mad scientist working in secret to aid the Third Reich , and 's The Invisible Man's Revenge.
In , Universal Pictures released a reboot of sort to the studio's werewolf picture Werewolf of London which starred noted character actor Henry Hull in a quite different and more subtle werewolf makeup.
The character of Larry Talbot aka The Wolf Man is considered one of the best classic monsters in the series. The title character has had a great deal of influence on Hollywood's depictions of the legend of the werewolf.
The decade also sees the continuation of Universal Pictures ' consistent releases of horror, suspense and science fiction films. This comes to be later known as the cult classic Universal Classic Monsters series which began in the s and would later dissipate in the s.
In this decade Lon Chaney Jr. Paramount Pictures also made horror films in the s, the most popular of which is The Uninvited. The film has been noted by contemporary film scholars as being the first film in history to portray ghosts as legitimate entities rather than illusions or misunderstandings played for comedy.
It depicts various supernatural phenomena, including disembodied voices, apparitions, and possession. MGM 's best horror genre contribution of the s would be Albert Lewin 's The Picture of Dorian Gray , which was popularly known for its interesting use of color insert to show Dorian's haunting portrait.
In , Great Britain contributed the anthology horror film Dead of Night. In the film house guests tell at least five supernatural tales, the last of which being the most remembered.
The film's last story, titled The Ventriloquist's Dummy features a ventriloquist tormented by a malevolent puppet. The popularity of movie genres of the s were mostly film noir , melodrama and mystery.
It would then arguably be a stretch to point out that some mystery and thriller films can be considered horror genre contributions of the decade.
Wes Anderson ranked it as the sixth best British film. With advances in technology, the tone of horror films shifted from the Gothic towards contemporary concerns.
A popular horror subgenre began to emerge: the Doomsday film. It is considered to be the most popular and most paranoid films from the golden age of American sci-fi cinema.
In the s, television had arrived and the theatrical market was changing. Producers and exhibitors found new, exciting and enticing ways to keep audiences in theaters.
This is how Hollywood directors and producers found ample opportunity for audience exploitation through gimmicks. The years through is considered the "Golden Era" of 3-D movies.
In a three-dimensional stereoscopic film , the audience's brains are tricked into believing the images projected onto a flat cinema screen are coming to life in full three-dimensional glory.
Those who came to see a 3-D movie inside a theater were given the familiar disposable cardboard anaglyph 3D glasses to wear which will allow them to see the images come to life.
In April , Warner Bros. The film, which stars Vincent Price , tells a story of a disfigured sculptor who repopulates his destroyed wax museum by murdering people and using their wax-coated corpses as displays.
House of Wax was the film that typecast Price as a horror icon. After the release of that film, Price would be labeled the "King of 3-D" and would later become the actor to star in the most 3D features.
The success of these two films proved that major studios now had a method of getting film-goers back into theaters and away from television sets, which were causing a steady decline in attendance.
Aside from 3-D technology, different forms of promotional gimmicks were used to entice film-goers into seeing the films in theaters. One great example is during the screening of 's The Lost Missile , a science fiction film in which scientists try to stop a mysterious missile from destroying the Earth.
Audiences who saw the film in theaters were given "shock tags" to monitor their vitals during the movie. They were promised that anyone who would get shocked into a comatose state by the film would get a free ride home in a limousine.
Film director and producer William Castle is considered the King of the film gimmick. After directing a cavalcade of B movies low-budget commercial films for Columbia Pictures in the s, Castle set out on the independent route.
This kind of promotional gimmick would later make him famous. Throughout the promotion of this film, Castle explained that through EMERGO, "ghosts and skeletons leave the screen and wander throughout the audience, roam around and go back to the screen".
Of course, in actuality, a skeleton with glowing red eyes was attached to wires above the theater in order to swoop in and float above audience members' heads to parallel the action on the screen.
In the film, Price breaks the fourth wall and warns the audience that the tingler is in the theater which then prompts the built-in electric buzzers to scare audiences in their theater seats.
The s is also well known for creature feature or giant monster movies. These are usually disaster films that focuses on a group of characters struggling to survive attacks by one or more antagonistic monsters, often abnormally large ones.
The monster is often created by a folly of mankind — an experiment gone wrong, the effects of radiation or the destruction of habitat.
The monster can also be from outer space, or has been on Earth for a long time with no one ever seeing it, or released or awakened from a prison of some sort where it was being held.
In monster movies, the monster is usually a villain, but can be a metaphor of humankind's continuous destruction. Warner Bros. It then begins to wreak a path of destruction as it travels southward, eventually arriving at its ancient spawning grounds, which includes New York City.
The film is also remembered for its influential stop motion model animation created by visual effects creator Ray Harryhausen.
One of the best movies during these years was Night of the Demon Ray Harryhausen created his own form of stop motion model animation called Dynamation.
It involved photographing a miniature against a rear-projection screen through a partly masked pane of glass. The masked portion would then be re-exposed to insert foreground elements from the live footage.
The effect was to make the creature appear to move in the midst of live action. It could now be seen walking behind a live tree, or be viewed in the middle distance over the shoulder of a live actor — effects difficult to achieve before.
That scene spurred on numerous homages in many horror films  in subsequent years including 's A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors , 's Army of Darkness and 's Game of Thrones ' Season 4 episode entitled The Children.
Japan's experience with Hiroshima and Nagasaki bore the well-known Godzilla and its many sequels , featuring mutation from the effects of nuclear radiation.
This kickstarted the tokusatsu trend known as Kaiju films , a Japanese film genre that features giant monsters, usually attacking major cities and engaging the military and other monsters in battle.
Other films in this genre that isn't about Godzilla include Rodan and The Mysterians These include Ghost-Cat of Gojusan-Tsugi , and Black Cat Mansion , which tells a story of a samurai tormented by a cat possessed by the spirits of the people she killed.
Filmmakers continued to merge elements of science fiction and horror over the following decades. The Fly is a American science fiction-horror film starring Vincent Price.
The film tells the story of a scientist who is transformed into a grotesque creature after a common house fly enters unseen into a molecular transporter he is experimenting with, resulting in his atoms being combined with those of the insect, which produces a human-fly hybrid.
It was followed by two black-and-white sequels, Return of the Fly and Curse of the Fly The original film was remade in by director David Cronenberg.
Considered a "pulp masterpiece"  of the s was The Incredible Shrinking Man , based on Richard Matheson 's existentialist novel.
The film tells the story of a man, who after getting exposed to a radioactive cloud, gets shrunk in height by several inches. The film conveyed the fears of living in the Atomic Age and the terror of social alienation.
It won the first Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation and was named in to the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress for being "culturally, historically or aesthetically" significant.
The independently produced sci-fi film Attack of the 50 Foot Woman was made in The storyline concerns the plight of a wealthy heiress whose close encounter with an enormous alien causes her to grow into a giantess, complicating her marriage already troubled by a philandering husband.
The film has become a cult classic and is often referenced in popular culture. The United Kingdom began to emerge as a major producer of horror films around this time.
Christopher Lee starred in a number of Hammer Horror films, including The Curse of Frankenstein , which Professor Patricia MacCormac called the "first really gory horror film, showing blood and guts in colour".
Horror has been a mainstay of television programming since the s. In the book TV Horror: Investigating the Dark Side of the Small Screen , observed that television has helped shape many generations of horror fans and filmmakers because it provided them their first exposure to cinematic horror as children cowering behind their sofa or peering out from under their blanket  In the s, multiple anthology series that feature suspenseful horror stories were broadcast on television.
The Veil is one notable anthology series that starred Boris Karloff as the horror host and characters in the episodes. Ten of the 12 episodes begin and end with Karloff standing in front of a roaring fireplace and inviting viewers to find out what lies "behind the veil".
Hailed by critics as "the greatest television series never seen", The Veil was never broadcast. Troubles within the studio resulted in production being cancelled after only 10 episodes were produced.
The number of episodes was considered to be too small to justify sale to a network or to syndication. Ten episodes were released to the public in their entirety for the first time in the s, and have subsequently been released on DVD by Something Weird Video.
Premiered in October is the anthology series Alfred Hitchcock Presents which featured dramas, thrillers, mysteries. It was created, hosted, and produced by Alfred Hitchcock , who by had already directed films for over three decades.
Some of the stories in the show were original, some adaptations of writers like H. Wells , and always had knotty twists and often came to macabre endings, as in the 4 December episode "The Case of Mr.
Pelham," in which a businessman is stalked by a perfect double who usurps his life and drives him insane. The Twilight Zone — has become a staple in horror fiction since its premiere in October Although predominantly science-fiction, the show's paranormal and Kafkaesque events leaned the show towards fantasy and horror.
The phrase "twilight zone," is used today to describe surreal experiences. An iconic episode which premiered on 20 November is Time Enough at Last which tells the story of a bank teller who yearns for more time to read and gets his wish when he becomes the sole survivor of a nuclear holocaust.
Other notable horror anthologies in the s include The Vampira Show , which was presented by Maila Nurmi , considered to be television's first horror host , dressed as her iconic campy Vampira character, and 13 Demon Street , which was hosted by Lon Chaney Jr.
Released in May , the British psychological horror thriller film , Peeping Tom by Michael Powell , is a progenitor of the contemporary " slasher film ",  though Alfred Hitchcock cemented the subgenre with Psycho released also in the same year.
Instead, he helped pioneer the art of psychological suspense. As a result, he managed to frighten his viewers by getting to the root of their deepest fears.
France continued the mad scientist theme with the film Eyes Without a Face The story follows Parisian police in search of the culprit responsible for the deaths of young women whose faces have been mutilated.
Meanwhile, Italian horror films became internationally notable thanks to Mario Bava 's contributions. In this film, Bava turned a Russian folk legend into a beguiling fairly tale about a young doctor who finds himself stranded in a haunted community and falls for a woman whose body become possessed by a woman executed for witchcraft.
In the United States, gimmicks continued to be used to entice film-goers into theaters. William Castle 's horror film 13 Ghosts was shot in " Illusion-O ", where audiences were given a "supernatural viewer" that they could wear to see hidden ghosts in the film.
They will need to search the house to find the doctor's fortune, but along with the property they have also inherited the occultist's collection of thirteen ghosts.
In , Castle made Mr. It tells the story of a man whose face becomes frozen in a horrifying grin while robbing his father's grave to obtain a winning lottery ticket.
During the promotion of the film, Castle introduced the "punishment poll" where the audiences decide what happens to Mr.
Sardonicus in the film. All they had to do was hold up a "thumbs up" ballot if they wanted Mr. Sardonicus go free or "thumbs down" if they want to punish him.
Supposedly no audience ever voted for life over death, so the film continues as if the audience's majority verdict was seriously counted.
A "fright break" was featured during the film where the audiences are shown a timer over the terrifying climax. The audiences who are too frightened to see the end of the film are given 25 seconds to walk out of the theater and into the "coward's corner" where they could get a full refund of their ticket and a free blood pressure test.
Before you could see the film inside the theaters, you had to pass a 13 question test that included such questions as " Did you ever do anything seriously wrong for which you felt little or no guilt?
If audiences failed any of the questions they wouldn't be allowed inside the theater. The American International Pictures AIP , in the early 60s, made a series of films based on stories by Edgar Allan Poe , most of which star Vincent Price , who became well known for his performances in subsequent horror films of the time.
Robert Wise's The Haunting is considered by a great many critics, aficionados, and casual fans of the horror genre to be one of the scariest films of all time.
The film is best known for its brilliant use of canted frames, mirror reflections, fish-eye lenses and uncanny sound and image editing.
Roman Polanski made his first film in English with Repulsion , which is considered to be his scariest and most disturbing work. Polanski's "evocations of sexual panic and masterful use of sound puts the audiences' imagination to work in numerous ways".
Horror films of the s used the supernatural premise to express the horror of the demonic. Jack Clayton's The Innocents tell the story of a governess who fears that the children she is watching over are possessed by ghosts haunting the estate they are staying.
A few years later, Roman Polanski wrote and directed Rosemary's Baby , based on the bestselling horror novel by Ira Levin. The highly influential film tells the story of a pregnant woman who suspects that an evil cult wants to take her baby for use in their rituals.
Meanwhile, ghosts were a dominant theme in Japanese horror , in such films as Kwaidan , Onibaba both and Kuroneko Another influential American horror film of the 60s was George A.
Romero 's Night of the Living Dead Considered to be the first true zombie movie, the film began to combine psychological insights with gore.
Distancing the era from earlier gothic trends, late s films brought horror into everyday life. Low-budget splatter films from the likes of Herschell Gordon Lewis also gained prominence in the s.
Some of Lewis' notorious works include Two Thousand Maniacs! The series centers on a group of teenagers and their dog who go to abandoned places to solve mysteries involving supposedly supernatural creatures through a series of antics and missteps.
The animated series' simple formula had a major impact on future slasher films especially of its portrayal of villains in masks.
The s began a new age for horror films with the transition from "classic" to modern horror. Horror films started to focus more on aggressiveness and ruthlessness while also focusing more on artistic qualities and societal themes.
The s was an era dominated by American horror films. Unlike the past, which was influenced heavily by European film-makers, Americans breathed a new life into the genre.
Modern horror films took the expected roles of characters in the films and changed them. This era changed the usual setting for horror films, using every-day settings.
Along with this came a change from focusing on defeating evil every time to having some instances where good fails before succeeding.
Invincible to human intervention, demons became villains in many horror films with a postmodern style and a dystopian worldview.
Its focus on the psychology of grief was unusually strong for a film featuring a supernatural horror plot. Another notable film is The Wicker Man , a British mystery horror film dealing with the practice of ancient pagan rituals in the modern era.
In the s, Italian filmmakers Mario Bava , Riccardo Freda , Antonio Margheriti , and Dario Argento developed giallo horror films that became classics and influenced the genre in other countries.
The ideas of the s began to influence horror films in the 70s, as the youth involved in the counterculture began exploring the medium. Romero satirized the consumer society in his zombie sequel, Dawn of the Dead Meanwhile, the subgenre of comedy horror re-emerged in the cinema with The Abominable Dr.
Also in the s, the works of the horror author Stephen King began to be adapted for the screen, beginning with Brian De Palma 's adaptation of Carrie , King's first published novel, for which the two female leads Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie gained Oscar nominations.
Next, was his third published novel, The Shining , directed by Stanley Kubrick , which was a sleeper at the box office.
At first, many critics and viewers had negative feedback toward The Shining. However, the film is now known as one of Hollywood's most classic horror films.
This psychological horror film has a variety of themes: "evil children", alcoholism, telepathy , and insanity. This type of film is an example of how Hollywood's idea of horror started to evolve.
Murder and violence were no longer the main themes of horror films. In the s and s, psychological and supernatural horror started to take over cinema.
Another classic Hollywood horror film is Tobe Hooper 's Poltergeist Poltergeist is ranked the 20th scariest movie ever made by the Chicago Film Critics Association.
Both The Shining and Poltergeist involve horror being based on real-estate values. The evil and horror throughout the films come from where the movies are taking place.
The Amityville Horror is a supernatural horror film directed by Stuart Rosenberg , based on Jay Anson 's book of the same name.
It stars James Brolin and Margot Kidder as a young couple who purchase a home they come to find haunted by combative supernatural forces. The Changeling is a Canadian supernatural psychological horror film directed by Peter Medak.
Steven Spielberg 's shark horror film, Jaws , began a new wave of killer animal stories, such as Orca and Up from the Depths Jaws is often credited as being one of the first films to use traditionally B movie elements such as horror and mild gore in a big-budget Hollywood film.
In , Don Coscarelli 's Phantasm was the first of the Phantasm series. A cycle of slasher films began in the s and s with the creation of Halloween by John Carpenter.
Another notable s slasher films are Bob Clark 's Black Christmas Sleepaway Camp is known for its twist ending , which is considered by some to be one of the most shocking endings among horror films.
My Bloody Valentine is a slasher film dealing with Valentine's Day fiction. The boom in slasher films provided enough material for numerous comedic spoofs of the genre including Saturday the 14th , Student Bodies , National Lampoon's Class Reunion , and Hysterical This subgenre would be mined by dozens of increasingly violent movies throughout the subsequent decades.
Sean S. Some films explored urban legends such as " The babysitter and the man upstairs ". Alien , a British-American science-fiction horror film directed by Ridley Scott was very successful, receiving both critical acclaim and being a box office success.
John Carpenter's movie The Thing was also a mix of horror and sci-fi, but it was neither a box-office nor critical hit, but soon became a cult classic.
However, nearly 20 years after its release, it was praised for using ahead-of-its-time special effects and paranoia. The s saw a wave of gory "B movie" horror films — although most of them were poorly reviewed by critics, many became cult classics and later saw success with critics.
A significant example is Sam Raimi 's Evil Dead movies, which were low-budget gorefests but had a very original plotline which was later praised by critics.
The horror anthology film spawned a series of films in the country over the subsequent decades. Day of the Dead is a horror film written and directed by George A.
Romero and the third film in Romero's Night of the Living Dead series. Vampire horror was also popular in the s, including cult vampire classics such as Fright Night , The Lost Boys , and Near Dark also In , Joe Dante 's seminal monster comedy horror Gremlins became a box office hit with critics and audiences, and inspired a trend of "little monster" films such as Critters and Ghoulies.
Several science fiction action horror movies were released in the s, notably Aliens and Predator Notable comedy horror films of the s include Re-Animator , and Night of the Creeps Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer is a psychological horror crime film directed and co-written by John McNaughton about the random crime spree of a serial killer who seemingly operates with impunity.
Pumpkinhead is a dark fantasy horror film, which is the directorial debut of special effects artist Stan Winston. In the late s, the horror genre suffered in the television market.
Most viewers leaned toward safe material,  such as soap operas, sitcoms, and fictional tellings of real-life events, and any horror content that did air on television suffered from network censorship, commercial breaks, low budgets, and "cheesy execution.
In the first half of the s, the genre still contained many of the themes from the s. The slasher films A Nightmare on Elm Street , Friday the 13th , Halloween , and Child's Play all saw sequels in the s, most of which met with varied amounts of success at the box office, but all were negatively reviewed by critics, with the exception of Wes Craven's New Nightmare , and the hugely successful film, The Silence of the Lambs The latter, which stars Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins , is considered a major horror movie of all times.
Each film touched upon the relationship between fictional horror and real-world horror. Candyman , for example, examined the link between an urban legend and the real horror of the racism that produced its villain.
In the Mouth of Madness took a more literal approach, as its protagonist actually hopped from the real world into a novel created by the madman he was hired to track down.
This reflective style became more overt and ironic with the arrival of Scream In Interview with the Vampire , the "Theatre de Vampires" and the film itself, to some degree invoked the Grand Guignol style, perhaps to further remove the undead performers from humanity, morality and class.
In the novel, The Vampire Lestat , by the author Anne Rice who penned Interview with the Vampire ' s screenplay and the novel of the same name suggests that its antihero Lestat inspired and nurtured the Grand Guignol style and theatre.
Two main problems pushed horror backward during this period: firstly, the horror genre wore itself out with the proliferation of nonstop slasher and gore films in the eighties.
Secondly, the adolescent audience which feasted on the blood and morbidity of the previous decade grew up, and the replacement audience for films of an imaginative nature were being captured instead by the explosion of science-fiction and fantasy films, courtesy of advances made in computer-generated imagery.
To re-connect with its audience, horror became more self-mockingly ironic and outright parodic , especially in the latter half of the s. Peter Jackson's Braindead known as Dead Alive in the United States took the splatter film to ridiculous excesses for comic effect.
Wes Craven's Scream written by Kevin Williamson movies, starting in , featured teenagers who were fully aware of, and often made reference to, the history of horror movies, and mixed ironic humour with the shocks.
The Sixth Sense is a supernatural horror film written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan , which tells the story of Cole Sear Haley Joel Osment , a troubled, isolated boy who is able to see and talk to the dead, and an equally troubled child psychologist named Malcolm Crowe Bruce Willis who tries to help him.
