Recently, a member of Chamber of Horrors NY reached out after reading 5 Elements of a Good Horror Story and felt the following infographic might be something of interest to all of you. Whereas 5 Elements tried to focus on horror as a whole, their post What Makes a Movie Scary, as you'd imagine, explores what horror elements and tropes make you cringe when you see them on the silverscreen.
When asked "what is Chamber of Horrors NY", they answered, "The Chamber is Long Island’s Premier Haunted Attraction. A dark collection of mazes and rooms, it combines lights and sound with a cast unequaled in imagination and talent, not to mention bloodlust. Owned, built and staffed by industry veterans, we can proudly say that we are 'Where fear lives…'"
I absolutely enjoy haunted attractions, but at first I was a little unsure why this one wrote an article on the scariest elements of a good horror movie. However, after checking out the infographic below and reading the coinciding post - as well as a handful of others - I started to think about the presentation of any good haunted attraction. It wasn't all about dark pathways and ghouls popping out from the shadows, sometimes it was about the little details such as building suspense and drawing of your fears.
