There has never been a shortage of horror movies: from the classic Universal monsters in the thirties to the fifties, the haunted house mania in the seventies, the slasher movies in the eighties and on to more recent violence-packed films today, the horror genre is always shifting and has the power to influence subsequent generations. Horror movies are almost as old as the film industry itself. The first horror film ever made was a short released in 1896, called Le Manoir du Diable (The House of The Devil), created by Georges Méliès. This short film has an element that’s still explored 125 years later through famous franchises and standalone movies: religion.
