History Of The Horror
Supernatural horror became prevalent in the 1920s and the early 1930s with German expressionist films; Paul Meehan said the style created “a nightmarish netherworld of supernatural fear”. The genre became more commercially popular in the 1930s with Universal Studios producing Universal Monsters films, and the films “were set in a mythical Transylvania or other Eastern European locale, in an unreal fantasy world far divorced from everyday”. Meehan said, “This served to make the creatures of the night that populated these films into harmless chimeras comfortably ensconced in the faraway past.” In the early 1940s, supernatural horror films had more contemporary settings, but the genre was ultimately superseded by psychological horror films. By the end of World War II, the supernatural horror genre “met its demise”, being overshadowed by the atrocities of the war. By the 1950s, science fiction horror films had replaced supernatural horror films, and psychological horror films also became more popular in the same decade, ultimately eclipsing supernatural horror. The few supernatural horror films that were produced in the 1950s were often set in haunted houses, a continuation of haunted-house films prevalent in the 1940s. 🌐
