The Dynamics of Horror: Why RE and Silent Hill Aren’t Scary Anymore

Ravi Sinha:

Resident Evil has always been George Romero. Silent Hill is John Carpenter. Zombies. Psychological horror. Take no prisoners. These two, like their directors, had always been the premier horror titans. It used to be a given that these two geniuses could do no wrong.

As the years rolled by, horror began to expand as never before. Suddenly, the entire globe opened up it’s brightest and best, showcasing a new wave of horror films people couldn’t be more terrified of. Torture films, J-Horror psychological films, deceptive protagonists, utter blood baths – suddenly it seemed a more frightening world than we thought possible. (Amnesia: The Dark Descent, PC, PS3, Resident Evil, Silent Hill, Xbox 360)
