Horror movies were reborn in the 1930s. The advent of sound, as well aschanging the whole nature of cinema forever, had a huge impact on the horrorgenre. The dreamlike imagery of the 1920s, the films peopled by ghostlywraiths floating silently through the terror of mortals, their grotesque deathmasks a visual representation of 'horror', were replaced by monsters thatgrunted and groaned and howled. Sound adds an extra dimension to terror,whether it be music used to build suspense or signal the presence of a threat,or magnified footsteps echoing down a corridor. Horror, with its strongelements of the fantastic and the supernatural, provided an effective escapeto audiences tiring of their Great Depression reality, and, despite the moneyspent on painstaking special effects, often provided a good return for theirstudio. In 1933 a horror film was made in colour, the technology was moving alot faster now. In 1931 a film called ‘Dracula’ came out. In 1931 also a filmcalled ‘Frankenstein’ came out.
