Ichabod Crane is sent to Sleepy Hollow to investigate the decapitations of three people, but he finds quite a bit more than he bargained for. This 1999 Tim Burton film was gothic horror at its finest, with a good dose of action thrown in.
Plenty of characters die during the film’s running time, but unlike in the original story, Ichabod Crane – here played by Johnny Depp – escapes with his life. It might not focus on some of the scarier aspects of the movie, but we still get to see a little bit of BTS action as Depp strolls through the recently-dead, inspecting each one.
Now, Look Scared
In this picture, we get to see Judith O'Dea and Russell Streiner Trying their hardest to look as if they're terrified of the awful sight they are seeing in the woods for “Night of the Living Dead” (1968).
What was, at the time, one of the scariest movies around, depicted the rise of the dead to terrorize the living. While it was certainly frightening at the time, we're sure that if the moviegoers all those decades ago had seen this picture, they wouldn't have screamed so hard at the theater.
Everybody wants to look good on their big day, and the bride of Frankenstein is no exception. Of course, this isn't something we ever saw in the classic Universal Studios film – that wouldn't really do much to keep the audience scared.
The Bride always looked immaculate when she was on-screen since she was created only to give the original monster a mate. What's surprising is seeing the actress touching herself up instead of a crew member doing it. Maybe the budget was too low to afford someone who would be around all the time, or maybe the actual make-up artist was busy helping someone else.
“Jaws” was a horror film of a different vein. It still had a monster, and it still had plenty of deaths, but it was less a ghoulie and more just a beast. It was also the movie that created the summer blockbuster and had plenty of people legitimately terrified to go swimming in oceans.
None of the sequels managed to garner much acclaim, but the first is a standout in movie history. In between takes, we see one of the characters relaxing next to the fake shark that is tearing up the boat. The different machines and puppets they used in the film all had the name “Bruce.”
It's a Horror Movie for the Bad Guys
A horror movie? Maybe not. But there's no denying that “The Dark Knight” had plenty of elements that are often in horror movies – it's just that we aren't the ones being scared.
We only get to see Heath Ledger's Joker unmasked and un-painted face once in the movie, and it's so quick you might not even realize it's happened. But it's easier to think of it all as an actor playing a part when you see Ledger getting his face painted by the crew. This Joker has become one of the more famous interpretations of the character – and proves to be plenty scary.
