Horror Movies

Things that go bump in the night, the monster in the closet, the shadow on the wall and the shape under the bed are all part of our subconcious fears that stem from childhood... the fear of the unknown. Horror films tap into that fear and serve up fright-filled nightmares that keep us screaming for more... For that one man cottage industry of fear and suspense, Stephen King films can be found through the 'Special Interest' link, under 'Based on...' or by using the 'Stephen King' link on any of his adaptations. See also 'Classic Horror'.
