It’s October and that can only mean one thing, a month long look at the horror genre. This week I cover the history of horror from it’s beginnings up to current films. I’m a huge fan of horror and this was a treat for me to look at how the genre began. It’s one of the first established genres in film and the silent era provided many entries.
Episode 22 covers the films Nosferatu, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and The Phantom of the Opera. If you don’t know these movies, you’ve seen their influence over the past almost 100 years. Personally, I learned a lot about these films and I hope you do too!
