Horror has been a popular film genre for more than a century. Works of dark fiction writers like Edgar Allan Poe, Bram Stoker, and Mary Shelley initially influenced the film industry with their horror stories. While coming to 1800, horror flicks like The House OF The Devil featured supernatural elements. But it gradually changed with Dracula and monsters coming into the picture, for instance, in movies like Frankenstein.
