History of Horror

I love horror films. For years I’ve collected horror novels, short stories, TV shows and films. In 2017, as we approach the 100th anniversary of the horror feature, I’ve started to compile my reviews of various key movies, to try to chart the history of the horror movie from its origins in the English stage and post-war German expressionism.
