Horror Movies - Get Entertained With Fright

Horror movies give us thrill and spine chilling entertainment. These movies are filled with suspense, scary characters and unanticipated turmoil that recreates the environment of sheer fright. This genre of cinema has been immensely popular and with the advancement of films, it has also come a long way. The old age frightening ghost and tumultuous characters like Frankenstein and Dracula have scared the audiences for years. With the advent of technology and enhanced graphics, uglier and more abhorrent characters have been introduced on the silver screen. The movie makers are seeking new ways to manifest the evil and fiery outlook in the films. These movies have great graphics and admirable characterization which unveil the mystery and fear at every turn.

Horror Movies  began to gain popularity in 19th century with movies like Le Manoir du Diable (The House of the Devil). However the first ever popular movie of this genre is the Dracula that was released in 1931. Dracula was the first ever scary evil that sucked human blood. At the same time Frankenstein also frightened the people. The Mummy was released in 1932. All these top horror movies became hits as soon as they were released.

In 1960’s Psycho was released which did not feature any monsters or supernatural events but focused on the evil that exists within every human being. By the 1970’s coloured films arrived on the scene and at the same time some of the scariest movies were showcased. The colour of blood gave the movies more devious appeal. Exorcist was released in 1973 that shocked the entire world with its monstrous and atrocious characters. The Omen was another frightening movie. By the 1974 The Texas Chainsaw Massacre hit the big screen with great bang.

In 1978 Halloween was released which is considered as one of the most significant and scary horror movie. This movie was a smash hit and it gave immense popularity to actor Michael Myers as a villain. He played Will Sandin who was locked in a mental asylum for years. He killed his sister at the age of six and became more gruesome afterwards. Other top horror movies are The Ring, The Grudge, Nightmare on Elm Street, Saw and the Hostel.

Cloverfield and Philosophy

The upcoming movie Cloverfield might seem like a blockbuster, but does it have a philosophical angle to it?

Title

Clover field, many speculation has raised over the name of the movie. Some believe, that the meaning of Cloverfield is a code that a military gave to the tape they found. Some think J.J. named it Cloverfield since his Production company is on Cloverfield street! Some argue that Cloverfield means, that the tape was found in an area on Central Park which had clovers. Many see some connection to his long series, Lost.

In a more meaningful way, clover is a person and field is New York. Imagine yourself walking in a clover field, you can see how small and insignificant the clovers are. The clovers are like people to the monster that attacks the field (New York City).

New York

People love to see New York getting trashed. There is only one New York, it is one of the most amazing cities in the entire Universe. It is the most interesting city in the entire Universe.

The fact is, that people like to see rich and powerful people dying, because they always feel they patronize them. To see a rich person die, might make some people happy, simply because, they believe those rich and powerful people are like their bosses and employees.

The people of New York love to see their city getting destroyed in movies since they live in this city. They feel identifying with the characters. They know the city and love to see it on the big screen even if it’s totally crashed by the big monster or aliens or whatever it is that comes to blow the city.

Monsters

Monsters are creatures from our imagination. From Godzilla to Monster Inc and even the Muffits, the authors of those, shows, movies, books, imagined those creatures. Why? Mostly because people want to believe there is more into life then this.

People want aliens to come, because they need something more interesting in their lives. One of the reasons that kids create imaginary friends are because, they have too much imagination and want to see something new. They like older people, want something extrodenry to happen. That is why people are willing to go to the moon, that is way people jump a banji jumping.

Monsters in some way are more friendly. In most of American movies, there is a relationship between the gigantic creature and the main character. Some of it comes in order to infest some humanity into the monster but, in a psychological way it is simply because in a twisted way, the main character wanted this monster to be real. He probably was sort of his imaginary friend back in his school days.

God, where is he in all this Monster fliks? Is it possible that the authers of those movies or books do not believe in God? How can God let this happen they might ask? In some philosophy, people claim that we are Gods… is it possible that we brought this Monster upon us? Possible. Human being in those kind of hard situations seek answers from God. Hollywood loves people who are praying to save the Universe.

But what if God decided to kill some people in the Universe? Can we change his mind? Cloverfield is a movie where God might protect the people in the movie (so we could have a movie…). But in some way, it is too late to pray to God, he made his decision since the monster is already here. It is really possible that most of the personal’s death is already written (On script or in God’s mind).

Philosophy of thinking

Many people believe that we are along in the world. Hollywood tries to show us that we are wrong  But are we? Or maybe should be? People nowadays are so into themselves they can’t see anything that happens couple of inches from them. Is Cloverfield a movie that might change this? I doubt it, Cloverfield tries like every Hollywood movie to pure a perfect world that the characters had with love being saved thanks to running around the city from a huge Monster.

The people who saw National Treasure can see what I mean. Nicolas Cage’s character grows apart from his girlfriend, Diane Kruger. But thanks to their brave quest they return back together although they shouldn’t. Why should she take him back? Just because he found a treasure? Don’t worry it doesn’t sounds stupid only to you. It’s nice to see the hero get the girl, but we all know how their days after the great adventure will look like.

Experience - adventure

We live inside a box. Some boxes are bigger, some are smaller. But being inside our square, we have a lot of trouble to get out of it and experience something new. Those guys in Cloverfield, experience something beyond our wildest dreams  They have a huge monster in their back yard. What we you do? Run? Hide?

The answer to this question is in your head whether you know it or not. Instinctively people tend to run away from the danger, unless they need to save someone. But mostly it is lock in you subconsciences. People are afraid of small bugs but can run trough fire to save their love ones.
