Watch: Journey Through Decades of Terror with 'The Horror Portfolio'
At the end of the year, we featured a pretty well-done retrospective of 2011 through cinema from Alex "hatinhand" which wrapped up the year pretty nicely. Now the editor has set his sights on a specific genre with an all-new video coming in the form of The Horror Portfolio. As you might guess, Alex has crafted a video looking back at horror films through the decades complete with some of the most iconic scenes from your favorite terrifying films and even a couple recognizable pieces of music to tie it all together. I wouldn't be surprised if there's a dissection of more genres like this coming later, but for now enjoy this one below!
Here's Alex's tribute montage to horror throughout the decades in The Horror Portfolio (via BuzzFeed):
For a full list of the films and music used in the video, check out the YouTube page right here. Of the passion project Alex says, "Sixty-four horror movies in a five-minute montage; the perfect project to work on until 2 a.m. and then return to an empty, dark, cold apartment. The last few nights have had some really, *really* twisted dreams." You'll notice that the video itself has been spaced out into short chapters which Alex has titled Haunted Houses & Ghost Stories, Angels & Demons, and Killers & Slashers. While the music and cuts along with it are spot on, I have to say that I wish there would've been more of the classic horror as it seems like the video is dominated by more recent films mostly, and some of them, like Shutter Island, may be more like psychological thrillers than straight-up horror films. Still a great horror collection though, right?
