Would a horror film lover enjoy 1922?
Yes! 1992 is one of those massively under rated horror films. The psychological mind games within the film’s story line make the audience themselves feel the same paranoia as the characters. This film definitely uses a subtler type of horror approach, by utilising the paranoid thoughts and characters themselves to produce anxiety in the audience. We are kept in a constant state of paranoia for half of the film, of having to read the characters body language, facial expressions, and words to see what they are feeling and think. This is very unique style of horror, that has only been pulled off correctly in a small number of films. Other films that have successfully managed to pull this style off is The Witch and The Lighthouse. If you are a horror film lover, and you haven’t seen 1922 before, then we would definitely advise you to watch this film. It was brilliant to watch.
