This video either demonstrates what horror movies have done to us… or perhaps how certain horror movies tap into ideas and images that we find seriously scary anyhow. I’d be inclined to think it’s the former with a touch of the latter.
We’ve seen elements of the image created here in The Shining, Zack Snyder’s version of Dawn of the Dead, in Don’t Go To Sleep, 30 Days of Night, Dark Water and Ringu – and probably plenty more that I’ve repressed.
There’s also a good version of something a bit like this in Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson’s tremendously clever stage show, Ghost Stories. There’s a play I recommend whole heartedly.
