Steampunk now covers a vast genre of literature, films, music, fashion and even a lifestyle subculture! Dramas and romance don't typically have huge budgets for special effects and sets, so when one really takes off, it can make an incredible ROI. Films like 12 Angry Men (1957) and Anatomy of a Murder (1959) show the inner workings of a courtroom. Based on Charles Addams' now legendary cartoon for The New Yorker depicting the bizarre and wealthy family that skewered traditional family values, they horrified all the straight people who encountered them, and although not self-aware were totally confident in their own beings.

When a historical event has inspired various movies (e.g., the Great Depression, the Vietnam War, Watergate), you have a rich opportunity to analyze and understand those cinematic interpretations. For one, their cover art is generally terrible. Make the films you love to watch or create brand new masterpieces. The masterstroke, of course, was hiring Swiss madman HR Giger as the film’s chief designer – his work brings a slippery, organic grotesquerie to what could’ve been a straight-up bug hunt (© ‘Aliens’).

That's what took down disaster movies from the Blockbuster Throne, and what will eventually ruin superhero movies, which Marvel alone is doing its level best to accelerate as we speak. It doesn't work, but it instead turns him into an evil Superman. There's something in the Netflix personalized genres that I think we can tell is not fully human, but is revealing in a way that humans alone might not be. In the West, during the 1920s and 1930s, adventure films were popularised by actors such as Douglas Fairbanks and Errol Flynn, but the settings were often period ones.

Marcel Carné's Les Enfants du Paradis (Children of Paradise) was filmed during the First World WarI and released in 1945. Tom Huddleston Wes Craven’s iconic, ironic slice-’em-up didn’t invent nudge-wink meta-horror – the director had dipped his own toe two years previously with the glorious ‘ New Nightmare ’ – but it certainly made this oh-so-’90s sub-genre massively popular. But this is merely a loose framework within which Fulci goes all out to upset and horrify his audience: faces melt inexplicably, tarantulas rip out human tongues, zombies rise from the grave, eyes are repeatedly torn out.

Embracing the opportunity to shoot in full colour, Bava creates a lurid, entrancing dream-world which clearly informed the work of Argento and Fulci, and indeed any director interested in exploring otherworldly ideas: one scene, where the hero seems to pursue a vision of himself, is an almost shot-for-shot antecedent of David Lynch’s disturbing final episode of ‘Twin Peaks’.

And for many, it’s as a study of insanity and failure that ‘The Shining’ is so chilling. Ben Stiller (and more importantly The IT Crowd's Richard Ayoade) are suburban dads on a neighborhood watch, when aliens attack.

Let us know in the comments below and we’ll be sure to add them here. But what’s most disturbing is knowing that Klimov barely scratched the surface: everything you see here happened, and continues to happen, to millions of people. The following questions will help you understand the values, themes, and philosophy: What values do the Wudan masters teach their pupils? And how, on a budget that would barely have covered the on-set sandwich trolley for ‘ Avatar ’, did he manage to create such an all-encompassing world, such dangerously droolsome hardware, such repulsively believable xenomorphic monsters?
