Faust, Nosferatu and Other Horrors


The best films of the past can make us think that they used to only make good stuff, while we make a little good stuff and a lot of trash. In reality, the trash of the past has mostly been swept up. We can be confident, then, that the classics have something to offer, even if we can't see them in the same way our peers of 100 years ago did. The Horror Films of F. W.

Which stories were you familiar with before? Have you seen these movies or other versions of the stories? 2. Why are films from this decade so memorable? Are they better made than modern films, in spite of our advancing technology for special effects? 3. Do you know of modern films that were inspired by these classics? Are they worthy successors? 4. What can horror films say about the societies they are made in? 5. What do you enjoy most/least about horror films in general? Are these classics good examples of that?
