Today, hunreds of horror films have been made. Two great explames of horror films are pyscho and the strangers. Although made in different centirutes their share some of the same style that make people scared today. 1st off, a little history. Horror stories have been around for a long time, but the 1st story to be called horror was a book by Horace Walpole in 1794 called The Castle Of Otranto.
One example is David Yates, Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix’s director, cut the Quidditch game scene. That scene is supposedly showing how Harry gets kicked out of the game and Ron becomes the captain. Most Harry Potter fans were upset because of that. The second problem that annoys book readers when watching their favorite book turns into movie is the inaccurate characterization from the book into the movie. In casting the actor or actress, a director does not necessarily pick one actor that looks just how the book readers imagine.

I Am Legend is a psychological thriller/horror movie worth watching, earning a distinct rating of four stars. Will Smith’s portrayal in this movie is unique in that the audience can watch as the solitude induced insanity slowly creeps over him (I Am Legend, 2007). Dr. Robert Neville was a lieutenant colonel in the United States Army during the time of the outbreak and was determined to stay in the New York area, ground zero, in an effort of curing the population and mitigating further infection. From the 600 million that survived 12 million had a natural immunity to the virus and the rest were turned into dark seekers who are essentially violent aggressive degenerative zombies of the human form (Media Case Study, 2007). Therefore, 9% percent of the human population has become dark seekers, which feed on the flesh of the non-infected.
The novel begins with a ruthless murder of a small boy’s entire family by a professional assassin. Only the orphaned toddler survives, because through coincidence or infantile premonition, it had chosen the night of the murders to wander from its crib. The killer, Jack, tracks the roaming child, by scent, to the graveyard. An elderly, ghostly couple rescues the young child and names him Nobody Owens, Bod for short. Bod is given the freedom of the graveyard; the ability to see and communicate with the dead, and therefore spends his early life living in there.
These spectators depending on who they are can totally sabotage your experience or make your day. Unfortunately, I was caught with a poor crowd and my experience was ruined as a result. This week I decided I would stay home and watch James Wan’s Insidious: Chapter 2 (2013) on Netflix. Insidious is another horror film like Annabelle. I chose this movie so I could directly compare my two experiences and see how different my experience would be without the crowd’s disruption.
The books start off by telling you what happens to Harry and his family when he is a baby and brings you to adult hood when he has children of his own. In the beginning of the first book Harry is brought to his aunt’s home because his parents had been killed by an evil wizard named Voldemort. He was brought to the family under the cover of darkness by Rubeus Hagrid under the order of Albus Dumbledore. Dumbledore believes that he will be safer living with “muggles” because he will be away from all of the evil. Voldemort tried to kill Harry but was unable to because of the love his mother had shone on him.
This one scene seems to take a large toll on Hamlet’s state of mind. There is a big jump in his morals not only as a person but as his character continues to grow. Before seeing the ghost Hamlet is an average college student dealing with his mother’s quick marriage and mourning the loss of his father. After encountering and speaking to his father’s ghost Hamlet shows the dark side of his character by swearing revenge and death to his uncle, King Claudius. This progression will continue to grow into Hamlet’s “antic disposition” and “genuine acts” in the scene following.
