Built entirely on scenes from different movies, this film faces the viewer to a wide range of pictures and sounds from a hundred years of horror cinema, and invites you to find out how fear works.
A screeching door, a whisper in the ear, a bad trip on the street, the mystery of the unseen, the disturbing sensation of being alone, a deep nightmare tormenting you and keeping you up. Can you enjoy fear? This documentary goes through the nature of scary with examples from a powerful tour through a hundred years of film history. The BBC work results in an interesting study on the genre and stands as a journey into the physical experience of fear. A voice over leads the narration, amidst images from 8mm to Dark Water, including Poltergeist II, Suspiria, Blow Out, and many more. That is why the film is a good excuse to revisit one of the most pleasant (?) feelings from watching horror movies: being afraid of everything, even of fear itself. HP
