You want to watch a horror movie, but you have no idea where to start. Did you know that horror isn’t a self-contained genre? There are different types of scares within horror. Here’s a look at the main four types of horror movies that you want to watch next.
The Supernatural/Paranormal Horrors
Let’s start with one of the most common right now. Supernatural or paranormal horror movies are popular for those who want something out of the ordinary. They don’t want to think about the real life situations and instead indulge into the fantasy. Some of these horror movies can be even more distressing than real life horror because they play on the imagination; making you see thing in the dark.
The Found Footage Horrors
Initially made popular with The Blair Witch Project, found footage style horrors are semi-popular. All the action is filmed through handheld camera techniques and you only ever see what is on the screen. More often than not you don’t actually see the entity or the villain after the group of people on the camera. This can lead to more scares, since the evil entity’s identity is unknown.
All the content is done with a shaky “real” feel in most cases. There are a lot of jump scares involved and usually poor quality shooting to add to the “found material” feel. The can make some of the best short horror films because of the reality feeling.
The Serial Killer Movies
Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween, and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre all had one thing in common: there was someone out there killing the main group of friends on the screen. Usually, one character would survive all the way to the end, allowing sequels to continue the storytelling. In the majority of cases, the bad guy is now killed but there are plenty of serial killer movies where the (most usually) teenagers believe the killer to be dead.
The Animated Horror Movies for Kids
Finally, animated horror is popular. They tend to be more family orientated, making them suitable for younger children. The scares are relatively minor but the story always finishes with a happy ending for all involved. There is usually no death involved with these (usually short) horror movies.
What are your favourite horror movies? Do you enjoy something realistic or will you stick to the fantasy worlds?
