Dear ol' Unkle Lancifer over at Kindertrauma was kind enough to invite me to participate in a "meme" (fancy word for chain-letter) in which bloggers post film screen-caps representing a particular theme of their choosing, and which showcase the "rich and exciting medium" of cinema. Sounded like fun, so I thought I'd take a stab at it.
In the world of horror, there always seems to be spooky goings-on around windows... whether you're peering out of them into the night, or something is peering back into them at you. I don't pretend to understand the pyschological underpinnings that make it so, but the fact is, if you want to make something seem just a little bit scarier, put a window in front of it.
Here's a collection of screen-caps from some of the spookier film moments involving windows. Even though this is only an exhibition, not a competition, I'll follow Unkle Lancifer's lead and post the film titles in the comments.
