I just found this podcast The Evolution of Horror....the two guys discuss various types of horror movies over decades of time.....I just started on Vampires, and have learned a lot in the first 30 minutes....

there was a vampire movie out a year before "Nosferatu," and a vampire book written in 1819.....80 years before Bram Stokers Dracula......

If you like horror movies and you don't like podcasters who swear every other minute, you might want to take a listen..

Horror movies used to be good. They were actually of scary themes with really good stories behind them.

Nowadays, some lunatic with a knife running around gutting people is "horror". That's not horror, thats just blatant gore for the sake of gore.

Yeah....I don't like the torture porn......I am a fan of real horror......just watching people be tortured isn't my "jam."

I like Return of the Living Dead...it has comedy, tragedy, all the emotions.........Dawn of the Dead, Alien.....those were some of the best as I hit my teens.....I used to look through all horror movie magazines to see Dawn of the Dead stories, because you couldn't see it.....it was before the home video revolution when a movie was gone after it was in theaters......Dawn of the Dead was one of the first movies I rented...it lived up to the expectations.....

"Slasher" flicks just don't do it for me. The few I've seen are just gore filled and not scary. Rosemary's Baby is my all-time favorite horror film. I did like the first two Alien films. There was some gore in them, but not overdone. We'll probably never see horror films like the original Frankenstein and Dracula films again.

Halloween was great for it's time....but there was no blood, and it managed to be great.......of course, now that people have seen so much blood and gore, it is tame for today.......younger people won't understand how good it was for the time...

I never got into the Friday the 13th movies, but I was fascinated by the craft of the special effects and how they could show horrifying wounds that weren't real.......

Tom Savini, Rick Baker........incredible artists.
