  1. Hello, considering the horrors of WW II; can anyone at Horrorpedia tell me the title of the first horror film made in Europe, Japan after the war? Date, actors etc., etc. Seems to me the public
    Would not want to see things that might remind them of “things”.

    1. War is indeed the ultimate horror and usually the result of agitation by politicians, religion ‘leaders’ and/or nationalist media. Normal, reasonable people do not attack each other. Only morons do. Horror films tend to reflect the anxiety that people feel. There were few horror films in the late 1940s and it wasn’t until the early 1950s that sci-fi movies emerged to reflect the new horror of nuclear fear. Unfortunately, with the prospect of Donald Trump in power the world now teeters on the edge of WWIII. That’s REALLY scary.
