Blumhouse's Compendium of Horror revisits the shocks and scares from our favorite iconic cinematic horror moments from the 1930s until today featuring insights from some of the best and most influential filmmakers, producers, and actors working in the genre, as well as experts and historians. The series, narrated by Robert Englund, reflects how quintessential horror films have revealed and reflected the real-life scares of the world to the audience, uniting us with shared understanding, catharsis, and entertainment.
In the 1930s, iconic monsters such as Universal's Dracula and Frankenstein launch a horror renaissance when they are reintroduced to movie-going audiences, offering a shared escape from real-world anxieties
Following World War II, Americans' anxieties evolved into fears around unchecked science, nuclear annihilation, and Communism (aka "the Red Scare"). Horror filmmakers responded with legendary films like Invasion of the Body Snatchers and The Blob.
In the 1960s and ‘70s, horror films reflected the real and intangible change younger Americans demanded. A new generation of auteur horror filmmakers pushed the envelope with films like Halloween, Carrie, Rosemary's Baby, and The Exorcist.
In the 1980s, 24-hour cable news was dominated the threat of new modern terrors. Moviegoers embraced iconic slashers like Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees; vampire films saw a resurgence.
