Horror, an enduring genre
Scary stories about murders, mysteries, and monsters have been popular long before the Gothic horror genre became established in the 18th century. From myths about monstrous beings to tales of terrible hauntings, it seems that people have always delighted in the thrills of a good ghost story or a frightening murder mystery. From the cosmic horrors of H.P. Lovecraft to the supernatural suspense novels of Stephen King, scary fiction remains very much in demand. In film and TV, the genre has also been popular from the very early days of silent film in the 1890s until the present - although scary movies aren’t everyone’s idea of fun! When it comes to horror in film, fiction, and games, there is a huge variety in subgenres, including science fiction, supernatural, and comedy horror, thrillers, zombie films, and ‘found footage’ movies. In video games, a number of popular survival games involve surviving various attacks by a host of supernatural creatures such as zombies and mutant creatures!
