Film and TV

A handy visual guide to horror movie tropes

If you walk into a department store today, you're going to be bombarded with Halloween paraphernalia. Even though the holiday is still two months out, it's time to start preparing yourself for the inevitable: horror movie marathons. Unfortunately, it's difficult to tell what exactly these films might portray, which is why we've put together this handy infographic to help warn viewers of potential scenes. They're not labeled, but if you can guess which scenes are from which films these graphics are depicting, then you can officially call yourself a horror movie fanatic.
