“Last night I was in the Kingdom of Shadows. If you only knew how strange it is to be there. It is a world without sound, without colour. Everything there the earth, the trees, the people, the water and the air is dipped in monotonous grey. Grey rays of the sun across the grey sky, grey eyes in grey faces, and the leaves of the trees are ashen grey. It is not life but its shadow, it is not motion but its soundless spectre. Here I shall try to explain myself, lest I be suspected of madness or indulgence in symbolism. I was at Aumont’s and saw Lumière’s cinematograph, moving photography”  Maxim Gorky

The horror genre has been frightening us for over 10 decades. The genre is nearly as old as cinema itself. It is mostly said that the first horror film ever made was “Le Manoir du Diable” made by imaginative filmmaker Georges Melies. What are the greatest ones? I took my notes and picked up my favorite horror movies. Here is the list of top 5 greatest horror movies.
