16 Best Post-Modern Horror Movies (Post 1998) On Netflix

05.10.2023 11:39 EST
Horror movies have changed throughout the decades. Evolved, if you want. The 80s and 90s classics, such as Childs Play or Halloween are way different than horror movies nowadays. They have one common factor: horror, of course. But as for the rest, plots, character development and atmosphere in general, it seems the genre has turned to a more unexplored type of horror: the psychological type.

this movie is actually a remake of a 1978 zombie classic. Or better, a somehow remake. Directors wanted to pay homage to the zombie genre but decided to just take a couple references and build a completely new movie. And it was good. Dawn of the Dead itself has become a cult movie.

we had to include a romantic zombie movie for this post modern list. Not like in a Twilight sense, but Warm Bodies offers a well-acted spin on a genre that, to be honest, its almost always the same.
