Horror movies are often dismissed as being full of blood, guts, and nudity. Films like The Shining, Rosemary's Baby, or, The Exorcist receive acclaim from their gorgeous cinematography, thanks to the talent behind the cameras, but many other films with just as compelling direction are often overlooked. That is, until now.
The Twitter account AestheticHorror aims to change that dismissive perception of horror films. From slashers to ghosts to zombies, the account chooses isolated frames of horror films to show there is just much effort that goes into crafting a shot as goes into celebrated dramas.
Recent films like The Witch and The Babadook have received attention for the filmmaking skills on display, but as the account aims to show you, there are plenty of horror movies with exquisite composition.
