The Settings of Horror in Film and Novel

Where would many of our most loved books and films be without the perfectly chosen effects of their surroundings?

Is atmosphere such a common thing that it's overlooked a bit too much, unappreciated for how much sheer and raw power it really has? Do you ever find yourself more drawn towards certain environment in a book or movie because in the past another you enjoyed was in a similar location that affected you strongly?

Can this article's opening sound any more like the beginning of some sort of sales ad???

But all joking and melodrama aside, the setting in horror is of monumental importance. The people behind the pen and camera pay attention to all the minuscule details that go into the working of a book or the production of a picture, but the reader and moviegoer is just wanting to kill some time and may not pay as much attention. But since its such a crucial part of the story, specifically horror, it definitely deserves the credit its due.



OUTER SPACE

Book Cover art for Ray Bradbury's The Martian Chronicles

One of the most extreme examples is Outer Space. The big unknown - the wide, open, vast and empty sea of mystery that has always fascinated mankind. And as mankind advances in its own world, he never has the common sense to keep his feet firmly planted on the ground. The ground of Earth, that is...and sometimes this can result in disaster.
