Topic: perception of horror movies in the early 20th century?
i'm writing a thesis on something in which i maybe would like to shortly mention something about what it says in the thread title.
the question is... today, we have slightly creepy movies (take e.g. "the others" and various other pg-13 rated...) and horror movies. if one watches the original "nosferatu" nowadays, it doesn't exactly send shivers down one's spine...
i'm wondering if people even made that distinction back then or if movies, that just seem slightly creepy to us now were already horrific for them and they didn't really have a lot of inbetween?
and to be more exact about early 20th century - i'm talking about the 20s and 30s.
