Horror movies are a clue to know which are the fears that keep us awake at night. Just as society is constantly changing, so are our fears, being mostly social inventions. We can certainly expect the pandemic to bring us titles and movies that represent new fears and phobias.
Our fears are a reflection of ourselves and attending to the horror genre is never a bad thing to know how we're doing on that ghostly thing of our own. Until recently the horror movies that grossed the most at the box office were the so-called "torture porn" or pure butchers, but the genre turned around since the appearance of films like "Hereditary" (2018), "A Quiet Place" (2018) or "The Babadook" (2014). These are films that combine family drama with psychological and paranormal horror, as well as having a more
striking and carefully crafted aesthetic. They move away from the typical clichés of the genre and try to create a suffocating and terrifying atmosphere.
