Introduction: Attention-Arousing Material: Danish actor, producer, and screenwriter Nickolaj Coster-Waldau once said, "The only thing I find difficult to watch are horror movies, not that I don 't like them. Like 'The Shining, ' it 's one of my favorite movies, but it 's terrifying. I feel like I 've watched a marathon afterwards." Link to Topic: I’m sure everyone can relate to this feeling when watching a legitimately scary movie.

Although appearances can be deceiving, and in certain instances, it is difficult to identify who the real monster is.
He has said that "Music in horror films is probably more powerful than in any other genre, so it’s good for a composer to do them because he can be very influential on the action"(Thorley 2012).Because the key objective of horror films is to frighten its audience, it seems very difficult, perhaps impossible to achieve this emotional affect only through the images, even with written subtitles that may describe to a limited degree the intensity of the situation. In his book “Why we watch, the attraction of violent entertainment”, Geffrey Goldstein carried out an experiment in which three violent documentaries were shown to three test groups. In all cases, the viewers lost interest and stopped watching at different durations of viewing. He says: “One striking difference between our films (the documentaries) and a commercial horror film is the quality of the sound track. Our films had the kind of sound typical of inexpensive documentary productions: No music, no special effects, and dialogue and voice over without the vibrancy and diction that trained actors produce with the help of a good sound lab.
The text writing that was most influential to me was the review by Stephen King, “Why We Crave Horror Movies.” In this review the author was very upfront with his option that was a reasonable one. He explains different events where you might get the same, in your stomach feeling, that horror movies give you. He also states a bold fact that everyone is insane and people cope with it in different ways. He explains how horror movies unchain or our worst fantasies, he says, “It’s like throwing a bucket of raw meat to hungry alligators to feed our dark thoughts and ideas.” But my favorite part is at the end when he quotes John Lennon and Paul McCartney “All you need it love” and finishes their statement by saying “As long as you keep the gators
The tone of the movie would be as trying to emphasize the point in where everyone was traumatize by the murders the anxiety brought by the chaos, the suspense and so on giving an impact on Germany. In my opinion, the tone was anxiety, horrific and maybe mysterious, brought by the perseverance of the actions throughout the movie. I found interesting that most of my peers came up with a different tone to the film and I would say are all-great because it all get to the same meaning. I would probably say that this movie is somewhat like a comic book, but converted into a movie. Mostly because of the way, it had the lines of the characters.

Some maintain that Mae West is solely to blame for censorship; her loud career and the changes in the PCA do coincide time-wise. But it is a well-known fact that the scrutinizing of movies that supposed a threat to morality was something that had been happening well before West appeared on the big screen. At the same time, West’s rising popularity made her an easy target for critics and reform groups. But, as Caren Feldman puts it, “she was more than symbolic; her controversial screen presence became a major impetus that accelerated a process already set into motion”(Feldman,
The Horror Genre: Unmasking Fears Across Generations Horror films push social boundaries and exploit Americans worst fears in a way that excites, challenges, and makes viewers obsessed with terrifying themselves. The horror genre is a vehicle that allows people to cope with their worst fears, such as death outside of their everyday reality. Horror films provide us with unimaginable or impossible situations making our own fears seem less terrifying.
