< Horror Film History — About This Site

About The Site

Horror Film History was originally published as part of Mediaknowall, from 2000 onwards, before taking on a life of its own in 2005. A sister site, Sci Fi Film History, is under construction. Although there are many excellent sites out there that deal with horror films as they are released, Horror Film History is unique in that it places movies in their sociohistoric context, and evaluates their position and influence within the genre. Keep checking back for updates!
