As Ryan had mentioned earlier about social issues being explored through horror, I’ve noticed those are becoming more and more popular. Just like in the 60’s with Night of the Living Dead which is a film about racism cleverly hidden behind a zombie flick. We now see films like Get Out and The Purge which are speaking about the exact same topics with a much larger platform. As far as the audience is concerned, they are getting smarter. People are becoming familiar with the tried and true tactics and clichés of the genre. This is forcing filmmakers to continually push the boundaries and tell more original stories in unique ways.
