IS ‘THE CONJURING’ A HERALD FOR GOOD TIMES AHEAD?

A Guest Post From Zeke Iddon & The New York Film Academy:

 

It’s been a bad decade for horror. While the early 2000s gave us plenty of memorable movies, from the original Final Destination to the zombie explosion following 28 Days Later, the years following have been a mixed bag; mostly terrible with a slew of bad remakes, and only a handful of really interesting fright-fests popping up in between (such as last year’s genre-busting Cabin in the Woods.)

Cabin In The Woods NYFA

Part of the problem, of course, is that we’ve become a generation of genre-savvy viewers who are growing harder and harder to scare. As we become increasingly reliant on technology, we’ve gained access to a great many things that earlier generations never had. We can watch news footage of atrocities from around the world, and the violent media helps to insulate us against the fake blood and gore on the screen. We’re also, as a whole, more cynical, more knowledgeable, and less afraid of the unknown – because in a world connected by the Internet, there’s very little “unknown” left.

All of which is not to say that we can no longer be scared. It just means that the things that frighten us have changed, and horror has taken a while to catch up.
