Beautiful Horror

This follows on naturally from my last post, as Buzzfeed has published a long (66 images) list of horror movies that it describes as 'beautiful as hell'. Beauty is of course highly subjective, but it's a good list. I've seen most of the films, and heard of almost all of them.

What struck me most about the list, though, was the contrast between colour and black and white. Is the latter better for horror films? Maybe. But I would defend the subtle and sumptuous colours used by the best directors/cinematographers. Here are a few examples.


A Tale of Two Sisters



Onibaba



Audition



Night of the Demon



Suspiria


A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night
