Anatomy of a Scary Film [Infographic]

Written by

BOO! You see, it’s pretty easy to scare someone. Or is it?

You may think that horror films comprise of a bloke in a weird mask chasing a teenager with a screwdriver through a haunted Aldi. But it is so much more than that. There’s catering for a start. Lots and lots of catering.

And as far as I’m concerned, that’s about it. However, I have now been SCHOOLED with this amazing infographic that breaks down and distillates all the necessary elements required to make your cinema-going experience as uncomfortable as possible. All the bits it takes to make a spooky movie (or spoovie) are investigated good and proper.

So turn all the lights on, have your mum ready on speed-dial and have a trawl through the Anatomy of a Scary Film, featuring all your favourite monsters, zombies and Blair Witches.

And feel free to scare and share. There is code underneath that allows you to completely STEAL this puppy and stick it on your blog, vlog or bloggie.
